For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 CSB
The famous tower clock known as Big Ben, located at the top of the 320-foot-high Elizabeth Tower, rings out over the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London, for the first time on May 31, 1859.
Lord, today I pray, as Paul did in Ephesians, for spiritual power. I pray that God may grant the people of our church, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in our inner being through His Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. I pray that we, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all believers of the world, what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and that we would really learn to know Christ’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.
I talked to David in the morning and he said that he is really busy.
Clarion County transitioned into the green phase. I will wait until next week to go to the barber shop. On Facebook they said there is a signup sheet on the door and you have to wait in the car if there is more than just a very few inside.
I took Twila to the bank and then we swung around the Pub to pick up a sandwich.
The church put out a letter to the congregation on our plans of how and when we will return.
Today Governor Wolf made clarifications on the green phase that will begin Friday for certain counties including Clarion County. Some of the highlights of his explanation follows:
I don’t know why I picked the hottest of the past 258 days to mow but I did. Today, we almost reached 90°. Our high was 89.8°, the highest temperature in Clarion since September 5, 2018.
In the afternoon, we had the first face-to-face elder meeting in over a couple of months. We discussed the opening of the sanctuary for worship beginning June 7. We will continue to have live services on both facebook and youtube. Our survey had indicated that some are ready to come back while others are not. We also voted to cancel VBS for this summer. All other activities, including Sunday School, remain postponed.
Today was Memorial Day. It was the hottest of the past 236 days (Oct 2). The high was 88.9°. The last time we registered that high of a temperature was Sept 5, 2018 when it was 92.7°. I planted some more flowers outside and it did feel very hot. I was glad I got the A/C in the windows the day before.
Frank and Lue came in for supper. They brought with them a quart of ice cream from Mauthe’s Country Corner, who has just started to serve the same recipe of soft serve as Randy and Cindy Bell used to at the Dugout.
I finished my lesson for Sunday in the morning, then mowed in the afternoon but the yard was very wet. Gary, Karen, and I went to Sweet Basils for dinner then I went out to the Little League field to watch Brody play.
I spent some of the evening planning a weekend in July at Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and an Indians' game.
Memorial Day 2010. I spent the morning with Sherri. Dr. Yevonne Maher, Dr. Thomas Maher’s wife and one of Sherri’s cardiologists, was in around noon. She said things are looking pretty good. She said it is such a fine line between getting enough fluid off of Sherri and taking off too much fluid. She said they want to keep an eye on the kidney function for a few more days before sending her to a regular room, for what the Dr. called R&R. Rick went over at 8 pm and Sherri was concerned about him traveling in a big thunderstorm, so she had the nurse call me to try to stop Rick. He was already there when I called him and after his visit he called back and said she was doing very well.
I went to Frank & Lue’s for a couple of hours in the afternoon for the Memorial Day picnic. It was good to see everyone. It was fun to see how Hannah was enjoying playing with the other kids. I talked on the phone to Brianna for a minute. She said to tell grandma that she loved her.
