First Thursday Prayer and Fasting

Today my message was about prayer and fasting- mainly concerning our Annual Conference request the we take the first Thursday of each month as a day of fasting and prayer for a "fresh wind of the  Holy Spirit to move upon us."

I bored myself. I pray the Holy Spirit got the message through to those listening. It didn't seem to be happening from my end through me...

Friday Five 6/25/2010

RevGalBlogPals is a favorite place for me to lurk and to read. This week I'm going to attempt to play the Friday Five.

From Songbird:
It's possible I may have a bad attitude about the arrival of summer. On the eve of the Solstice I left for a mission trip to a town in Maine bordering Quebec. Beset by a swarm of bloodthirsty black flies, and a "classic allergic reaction" according to the PA at the Urgent Care, I had to return the next morning to a week of Benadryl and ice packs. (If only I had known about Bug Band *before*...)

But I don't want that to ruin summer for the rest of you. So I invite you to share five things you love--or don't--about summer. The tone is up to you!

I could easily share the five things I liked about summer when I was a kid- but that would be cheating. So here are my five things:

1. I love the long summer days.

2. I love lightining bugs (especially when I found out they are not found all over the country.)

3. I love Sweet Corn! Especially Illini Super Sweet...
4.I love fresh Southern Illinois Peaches...
5. And I love it when summer turns to fall...

Another Place to Post- Another Side of My Life

Many times I want to post something not appropriate for my other blog, Taking Care of Mom and Dad. So I've decided to start a second blog. I don't have time to "blog my life away" but on occasion I would like to comment on my vocation, my calling to ministry. So here it is- for better or for worse- Another Side of My Life.
