 Make our Lord smile!

 I miss these service stations.....

(I once worked at one sorta like this)

 For today:

We went to Saint Matthew, SC to hear a former pastor preach. His name was C H Matthews and related to folks who established the town.

On the church sign out front was:

“If you want to make God smile, tell him your plans!” they attributed the statement to Dolly Parton.

BTW (even OLD) ‘C H’ did a great job of ministry, even better than when he was in his 20s!

But this entry is about plans. I had plans this last few days. Three days ago, I looked under the kitchen sink, ouch, a bad leak!  Drop everything, morning was spent repairing sink.

Today I needed to get a tractor started to clear the road to our house.  It has been many moons, maybe 20 years since it was started. I gave it to my son Mark years ago, and it has been setting. I decided to pull the battery and bring it here to charge it.

When I went to our former home (Now owned by Granddaughter Sherece) to retrieve the battery, and before seeing the tractor, I noticed some trees (small 4”-7”) had fallen on the storage building. There were a total of 6 of them.  After getting the battery on charger I grabbed an extension cord and the electric chain saw and headed back.

Jim and Barbara Wills (He did a couple movies)

Clearing the road is for our neighbor James (Jim) Arp. Jim is a couple years older than I. He was famous as a Rock’n Roll singer, 1950s-60s. Lead singer and guitarist for ‘The Del-Rays.’

The city should be clearing the road, but Jim says they told him to do it. It is always good to spend time with Jim, I know some of his jokes are old, but so are we.

Now ain’t you sorry that Sherry said, “At least post once in awhile!”

For fun, Jim Arp:

Glad you posted, Jack! It is good to hear from you and to know you are keeping yourself busy (and hopefully out of trouble!)

Sherry is right. It is good you posted. I was getting worried about you; and prayed extra more. Got to get up from my knees now.

You have been busy it seems. Take care and have a rest.

God bless.

It was great to see your post today. You have been missed. I have learned that God's plans are always better than mine were. That is the truth! Glad that I don't have to worry about what's going to happen. He takes care of all of that !

Thanks so much for posting and letting us know all's A-OK! I just wish you could bottle up some of your 'get-r-done' and send it my way!
Old friends like Jim are a blessing, aren't they? You're sweet to listen.

I’m glad your back too. I read your post almost every day and it’s kind of weird when your blute (Blog mute). Yes I just made up that word.
I go MIA a lot on my blog sometimes but i’m always on here reading others. I just run out of stuff to talk about and time to do it.
