When God Solves Our Problems

When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities. When GOD doesn't solve our problems, HE has faith in our abilities. One may observe God's accuracy in the hatching of eggs… those of the Canary in 14 days; those of the Barnyard Hen in 21 days; Eggs of Ducks and Geese in 28 days; those of the Mallard in 35 days; Eggs of the Parrot and the Ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!) See God's Wisdom in the making of an Elephant… The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body… too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. The Horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A Cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of Creation! Each Watermelon has an even number of stripes on the Rind. Each Orange has an even number of segments. Each ear of Corn has an even number of rows. Each stalk of Wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of Bananas has on its lowest row an even number of Bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. Amazing! There's more… The Waves of the Sea roll in on shore Twenty-six to the Minute in all kinds of weather. All Grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.. God has caused the Flowers to Blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the Great Botanist, once said that if he had a Conservatory containing the right kind of Soil, Moisture, and Temperature, he could tell the Time of Day or Night by the Flowers that were Open and those that were Closed. The Lives of each of us may be ordered by the Lord in a Beautiful Way for His Glory, if we will only Entrust Him with our Lives. If we try to Regulate our own Lives, we will have only Mess and Failure. Only God, who made our Brains and Hearts, can Successfully Guide them to a Profitable End. When you carry the Bible, Satan has a Headache; when you Open it, he Collapses. When he sees you Reading it, he loses his Strength, and when you Stand on the Word of God, Satan can't Hurt you! And did you also know… that when you are about to Forward this Email to others, the Devil will probably try to Discourage you, but do it anyway. Life without God is like an Unsharpened pencil - it has no Point. I pray God bless you in ways you never even Dreamed. I didn't think twice about posting this one.

He made15 starts in the Indianapolis 500, McElreath began his rise in racing in 1945 as a 17-year-old youngster running modified stock cars at the renowned Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. His open-wheel career began in 1961 with USAC,  and he competed in his first Indianapolis 500 a year later, finishing sixth. That performance earned him the honor of Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year. He would go on to record three top-five and six top-10 finishes in those 15 Indy 500 starts.Through his illustrious 23-year career, McElreath competed in 183 open-wheel events and posted five victories, 48 top-five finishes and 22 podiums along with four poles. Those wins included the inaugural California 500 at Ontario, Calif., in 1970 driving A.J. Foyt's team car. He also had a pair of top-three finishes in the USAC national championship and also excelled in dirt cars. The versatile star also made four starts in the NASCAR Cup Series. Upon officially retiring from racing in 1984, McElreath worked on restoring vintage open-wheel race cars.


Return from Indiana

As most of you know we had made an unexpected emergency trip to Indiana.   Our 12 yr old grandson had a 12 hour surgical removal of a tumor in his sinus cavity.  All went well and they were able to remove 95% of it. The doctors will monitor the fragments left and take whatever steps are necessary if they begin to grow again. 

He will be home from school another 3 weeks for his safety.  He will need therapy to help him talk and form his words again.  The tumor also rested on the palate and the muscles need to be retrained to form words again. 

He will be seeing the main doctor again on the 14th and the other doctor on the 20th for his evaluation. 

Your continued prayers for a complete and speedy recovery are appreciated. 

Thank you, Nancy & Dudley


Prince of Peace

The Name
Who hasn't longed for peace, living in a world that is so often full of strife? The Hebrew word for peace, however, means much more than the absence of conflict or the end of turmoil. Shalom conveys not only a sense of tranquility but also of wholeness and completion. To enjoy shalom is to enjoy health, satisfaction, success, safety, well-being, and prosperity. Though the New Testament does not directly call Jesus the Prince of Peace, this title from Isaiah has traditionally been associated with him as the One who brings peace to the world. Furthermore,  Paul assured the Ephesian Christians saying of Jesus, "He himself is our peace" (Ephesians 2:14). When you pray to Sar Shalom, you are praying to the One who is the source of all peace. To live in peace is to live in his presence. 

Key Scripture

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
