Happy Thanksgiving!

Ohhhh, how much we have to be thankful for! God is so good!

It has been a tremendously busy couple of weeks here in Bryant Pond / Chelsea / Pittsfield to Greenville. (smile) Business wise this is my busiest season (along with the 4th of July). This has kept me running quite a bit. We are praying for this business to sell quickly. Pray! We possibly have a breakthrough there!

The house is on the market but we have not had any calls yet. God will move on this, I just know it.

Here at Bryant Pond Baptist Church we wrapped up a busy Wednesday with a 10" snowstorm, a funeral and an evening service. The homegoing service went very well. I praise the Lord that He took control. Please continue to pray for the Verrill family. They have that hope because they know that Harold was saved and many of them are saved as well. There is still grief. "Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning" (Psalm 30:5) The Lord has helped them and they are a great family. It blesses my heart to know them so much better now.
Our evening service last night may have been sparsely attended, (just my family and two others) but we still had a church service. I still led songs (we sang extra, even a-capella) and I still preached. I had a man tell me after the service how that my series on Thankfulness was like a baseball bat and it was just what he needed and now he is doing something to make a change in his life. Glory! God is good. I am learnng that even when you think you have "laid an egg" as a preacher, if you are preaching what God wants you to preach, it IS having an impact.

Today we will be heading from Bryant Pond to Wiscasset to have dinner with my mom. Then its back to Chelsea for the night, and on the route on Friday, then back to Bryant Pond on Friday night. Whhhheeeewwww, I am glad it is on the Lord's strength not ours!

Praise God! I pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We do indeed have so much to be thankful for.
