A QUICK NOTE FROM JOHN AND CATHY

26 10 2013

Hello all, Cathy and I are heading out the door for our 40th anniversary trip which we’re taking to our favorite place, the Imagemountains.  It’s always great for us to get off to ourselves and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.  But also, we use this time an opportunity to draw closer to our Lord and Savior.  Two of the best ways to accomplish this is 1st spending time in God’s Word, and 2nd is time spent in prayer, be it praise or petition.  Many of you know (or possibly don’t maybe) that you are a regular part of these prayers; from folks that we’ve known since our youngest childhood days to people that perhaps we’ve only come in contact with a few times.  If you’d like us to pray for something for you or someone you know, please contact us and we will consider it an honor to go before the Lord on your behalf.  Send us a message here and we’ll read it, but won’t publish who you are or what your request is.  The same thing for Facebook, send us a private message and we will keep you and your request totally private.

Some may ask why we do this.  Well, it is definitely not to impress anyone or give the impression that we’re “holier than thou” people.  We’re the same anyone, no better than anyone.  But we hold firmly to the belief that when we call ourselves Christians we’re not saying so much who we are, but what we do in the Lord.  His word is quite clear on this subject; Pray for Each Other!!

Ephesians 6:18 – Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.  To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

1 Timothy 2:1 – First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,

Philippians 4:6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

We praise our Lord for the 40 years He has given us together, believing that without Him in our lives this milestone would have never been reached.  We thank God for each of you that He has placed in our lives.

This week’s entry to “Traveling the Rock Road” will be different, instead of figurative stories, we will be bringing real pictures and short stories of being on the Rock Road.  I hope you will join us by reading about our journey of literally seeing and experiencing the Lord’s awesome creation.

As always, Blessings to you and your Loved Ones!
