You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Welcome Back Again

Welcome back to Spiritual Sundays. I appreciate the prayers for my niece, Nancy. Please continue to pray for her. We drove over to California for a few days to see her. We were able to talk to her and she understood what we were saying but she couldn't talk because of the tube going down her throat. She communicated by facial expressions, nodding and shaking her head. Her pneumonia is better but she is still having a problem breathing without the machine.

My heart is heavy as I write this. We have had a traumatic week. Many lives have been affected by the tragedies in Boston and Texas. And we received word yesterday that my niece, Nancy, is in the hospital - in ICU with pneumonia. I am asking that you please pray for her.

We know that God hears and answers prayers. We don't always understand what His answers are, at least not immediately, but we know he understands and we trust Him with our hearts and with our lives.

As I mentioned last week, Michelle (micey) will be joining up with Mercy Ships again in a few days. Here is the link where you can find out more about it.   Let us all keep her in our prayers as well.

Time to begin another linky. My those weeks sure fly by fast. This week I am going to encourage you to pray for missionaries. Of course all missionaries need our prayers always, but this time I am focusing on Michelle (micey) who will be joining Mercy Ships in just a few days where she will be serving in Africa for two years. She has been planning and looking forward to this for a long time and now it is almost time to go.

Also, I hope you will pray for the McMahans. Here is a clip from an email I received a few days ago. "Don and I are going on a Missions trip May 1st thru the 21st of May. We will mainly be in the countries of Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, and France and we would LOVE for you to pray for us while we are away."

Another thank you to all who share with us here each week. And a welcome to each new person who finds this blog and shares as well. If you need information about how to link, there are instructions. Just click on Linking Info under the header picture.
A request has been made that I share again where you can donate to Mercy Ships to help finance Michelle's trip. So here it is:  Just click on the following link. It will take you there.

Well Easter is over but we are still living in the reality of the resurrection. It is not something that we just think about once a year even though it is emphasized more at this time than at any other.
Before He was betrayed and crucified Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper. This is a wonderful way to remember what He did for us. He knew people tend to be forgetful. I am reminded of how quickly the Israelites forgot how God had miraculously delivered them out of Egypt. Let us not be like that. Let us never forget how God delivered us through the death and resurrection of Jesus. That is what holy communion is all about.

1 Corinthians 11:26

New International Version (NIV)
26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
