Good evening everyone on another beautiful and warm, Lord's Day here in Reevesville.

The Nine Day Trail Ride has come to an end for the year, and it seemed to be quite a good time. We're thankful that no one got hurt and everyone had fun and made it home safe.

I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to Sister Ann Evans of the crossroads area. Happy Birthday, Ann, and we hope you had a blessed day.

The House of Prayer and I sure are blessed to announce that as we were honored to have service with The Refuge Church in Metropolis this past Wednesday, that there was a soul which gave His life over to the Lord. Congratulations Bro. James and what a blessing -- you are in our prayers.

I was able to get to be with all the good folks at Hillview this afternoon. They are so awesome. You all bless me more and more each and every time I see you. Thank you so much for being so encouraging all the time. I can't wait to be with you all again soon.

A great big oak tree fell across the road here in Reevesville, right at the bottom of the hill. Thank you to whoever cut it up and out of the road. That could have been dangerous.

The lot behind my house is sure coming along nicely, as the folks who purchased it have been working pretty hard clearing it off and cleaning it up. Keep up the good work.

The yard sales of Reevesville have come and gone. We had one here. My sister-in-law, Misty Murrie, had one over at her house, and the Hormans had one as well. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm glad ours is over. They sure can be a lot of work.

Who was blind Bartimaeus' Father? For the answer to this week's Bible quiz, turn to Mark 10:46.

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director, "How can you tell when someone needs to be institutionalized?"

"Well," said the director, "we fill up a bathtub with water, and hand the patient a spoon, a teacup and a bucket and ask them to empty the tub of the water."

"Oh, I understand. A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or teacup."

"No," he replied. "A normal person would just pull the drain plug. Would you like a bed beside the window?"

Until next week . . . see you in church.
