It seems that in today's busy world with all its knowledge and new technology, many people are overlooking the importance of developing good character. In bygone days, it went without saying that neighbors helped neighbors and a man's words was his bond. Children learned good characteristics by the examples set before them in their parents and teachers.
This is still the best way to produce good character. God's plan is for us to be wise and develop positive character traits not only in our own lives but also in the lives of our children and those we influence. Don't make the mistake of thinking this can be accomplished overnight. It takes time and determination, but the end product is priceless.

Oh how I loved the Andy Griffith Show when I was a kid. I always enjoy the reruns whenever I can find them. Happy Days was one of my favorites too. Wish someone would start producing this type of wholesome sit-com during prime time these days!

When we got home Kari found an over sized chair & ottoman with a fold out bed on Craig's list. We all hopped in the pickup & went to check it out. The girl wanted $100.00, but was willing to sell it for $80.00. Great bargain!
One of the ladies that was having a garage sale on Saturday gave us a flier about an indoor estate sale that she's having starting Thursday morning at 7:00. I'm hoping Kari & I can check it out. I'm determined to find some great things for my chalkboard painting project!

On May 30 we had a power outage for about 2 hours. The power went on & off quickly several times. Last week we had another outage & power surges. We are pretty sure this is what fried the compressor.

In the middle of a difficult day when you're feeling most hard-pressed that's the time to give God thanks. Perhaps you're at work dealing with disgruntled coworkers or customers . . . or at home, dealing with belligerent children. Instead of giving up in despair, thank God for the opportunity you've been given to exhibit His love. Then take a moment to look into their faces and give thanks for them.
Giving thanks for people who sometimes cause you problems increases your appreciation for each person as God's totally unique creation. It's a reminder that even the difficult people around you have been places on this earth to fulfill a God-given destiny and are, therefore, precious in His eyes.

on a large piece of plywood out of seeds.
Believe me, we needed the full two weeks to complete the project!
Now in the 21st century most churches have streamlined VBS.
Some hold VBS in the evening after parents get off work.
Now Mom & dad can both be part of the fun.
