Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!



2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

Parking Space

You Took my parking space at church.
This should wake us up.
One day, a man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up near the driver got out and said. "I always park there! You took my place!" The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated. "That's my seat! You took my place!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, That's where I always sit! You took my place!" The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still He said nothing. Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, "What happened to you?" The visitor replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from His eye. "I took your place."
Yes it is true He (JESUS) took our place. Our sins are covered by the blood of God's only Son. Have you accepted this free Gift of forgiveness.

Car Repaired

We got our car repaired. It turned out not to be our wheel bearing but rather the front left brake hose. The mechanic said the bearing looks good. We need to get two new tires so will take care of that on the 20 th. Cars sure are a blessing until they start needing repairs.

Life goes on

I visited my niece Violet again recently. We went together to Rice Lake WI for her aunts, my sister-in-laws 80 th birthday open house. We stopped at a kitchen store, several art galleries and Barnes & Nobles. We had a good time.
This morning on the way to church on an off ramp the car smelled very hot. Bob got out to check and around the tire was very hot. We think it is the bearing. We had already arranged an appointment for tomorrow to have it checked and our mechanic said it sounded like a brake or bearing. Anyway we got a tow truck from the place we were going to take it tomorrow to tow it to their place.
I have slowed down for a while on my knitting because my neck, shoulder, and left arm were getting very painful.
Just talked to my neighbor about roto tilling our garden spot. My crocus and Iris are greening up. Yesterday I spotted some rubarb peeking through the ground. Day lillies haven't shown up yet. All snow in our yard is gone. There still are a few very small piles around town.
Whats up at your place?

Prayer request

Please pray for me to get my blood sugar and cholesterol under control. Yesterday my low blood sugar was 178 and high 359. My cholesterol isn't that bad but should come down some also.
