Fall Festival at Sugar Creek Baptist Church Oct. 19, 1000 Sugar Creek Church Road, Madison, 5-8 p.m. Too many activities to name them all: cake walks for adults and children, face painting, popcorn, hair “fixin,” funnel cakes, hay rides, music, games

Did everyone get wonderful, refreshing showers on Sunday night? Just completed a perfect weekend.

All services were good with a few out for one reason or another, but the church house was warm with spiritual preaching from Isaiah 53, with the message of how much God loves us. He came to absorb the wrath of God. He looks at me and sees sin. Yes, He definitely does. It pleased God for Jesus to die to bring those back to Him. The blood was the life and He had to die to come again for us and for our sin. He showed us wealth though His dying.

We surely enjoyed having Glyn in our home for her late summer visit. Usually during this time, she and I just can’t cram enough into our time together. We enjoyed this week, but didn’t get to do much as I had a doctor’s visit that left me with a bad feeling. But we always enjoy just being together. While here she and I did have a good visit with Jessie and Lou. She was disappointed that she didn’t get to see Molly or Buford – maybe next time – and she had a nice visit with Jimmy and Sylvia Moon.

The Coman household will be celebrating a milestone next weekend. Happy 60th birthday to Tom Pharees.

Ladies, please get your recipes in to Stephanie or Cindy. Our cookbook is going to be delayed again. Now let’s work for a release date of around Mother’s Day.

It’s just two weeks away and we are deep in our plans for a successful Fall Festival. The date is Oct. 19, 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. We have so much to for you to do packed into these few hours. We’ll have face painting, “flair” hair, hay rides, funnel cakes, cake walks for both adults and the younger kids, plus we plan to auction off several cakes, and so much more. This is not a fund-raising event for our church but, as we are building, a donation box will be set up if you would like to contribute to the cause. Oh, a picture-taking booth and music will be provided. In other  words, a “good time should be had by all” type of event. Plus there will be hot dogs with the “fixins” served. We pray for nice weather.

The Lord’s Messengers, along with Clint Butler and His Way, will be at Oakley’s Gospel Barn on Nov. 2. This will be the last one of the year 2013. Food and fellowship will start at 4 p.m. with singing at 6 p.m.

Ladies, we wlll need toothbrushes and toothpaste, along with other items, for our Christmas project for the military.

Seems the seasons are quickly passing by. Just can’t realize that October is already in progress. I am beginning to think about my menu for Thanksgiving.

Special birthday blessings for Jackie Bell on the 12th.

“You don’t need all the answers. The teaching isn’t in the answers. It’s in the question, the conversation, the journey to the answer.”

So until next week, may the Lord bless you real good.
