Thanksgiving has come and gone. But what is not gone are the many things I continue to be thankful for. For me it is God, country, family and friends. We now look forward to Christmas. I have been in the Midwest pheasant hunting and spending time with my 91 year old father, children and grandchildren. And yes, the pheasant hunt was successful! Just ask me the next time you see me.
The finance and budget committee will be meeting the latter part of November and Decem ber to prepare the 2019 budget. Sure we have some challenges, but I am confident a budget will be established to meet our congregational needs and assessments. I am thankful for those that have volunteered to be on the committee. They are Butch Ward, Betty Fraim, Fr. Russ Mathews, Jim McVea, Debbie Moses, Brandy Carter, Fr. Mark Bigley, Peggy Ussery and me. Please pray for us as we gather together on behalf of our church and congregation.
As I drove to Missouri and Kansas from Texas I was amazed looking at the beautiful fall foliage. Sunrises and sun sets were magnificent too. There is no way man caused what we call “nature”. Think about it. God is indeed good!
