Picture-Perfect Late-Summer Day Pt. 2

House – Well, praise the Lord!  It was indeed another beautiful day, and we got a good deal done on the roof system.  If you looked at the house yesterday evening, and then this evening, you wouldn’t see much difference.  But there was a lot of detail work required to make the 2nd floor deck ready to accept the rafters.  We installed the ridge board and one rafter also.  Tomorrow, Lord willing, we’ll install a bunch of rafters and perhaps start on a dormer.

Meditation – We attended the IBLP Basic Seminar last week.  Mr. Gothard spoke about meditation and how using scripture in our prayers can be very powerful.  To that end, I’m endeavoring to memorize Romans chapter 6.  It reminds me of a great message I heard from Doug Schwaderer at an Old Paths Bible Baptist Church men’s meeting.  He spoke on the fact that we (that is our flesh) is DEAD.  Dead people don’t need to be catered to, or pampered, or fed or anything.  When your flesh want you to do something for it (usually something bad), tell it “you’re dead.  Be quiet.”  God’s Word is so good, useful and profiable, amen?

  1. Amen!!! If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. I am “dead” and my life is hid with Christ in God. I’ll never forget the day that began! The best day of my life!
