This is here to wish all the dads a Happy Fathers Day

He gazes at me from across the packed room. Were at just another meeting but I dressed to look my best. Do I see the same twinkle in his eyes I saw when we first met? Do I see the same look he wore on our wedding day? Am I so blessed that he still gazes at me with the same love and pride? Thank You, Lord, for that look. Thank You, for today for him.

Help me show to him the same love and thoughtfulness as when we married. In our hurried schedules, let us look for time to spend with each other. Sometimes I love sharing a second glass of iced tea on the patio at sundown.

I think of changes weve faced and will continue to experience. We have fallen in love with each other over and over again, even while changing.

Teach us to keep respecting one anothers feelings. Teach us to put each other first, after You.

And, Lord, help me keep myself in a way that he will always look across the room with love and pride.

And now these three remain
Faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13 v 13

Love? I will tell you what it is to love!
It is to build with human hearts a shrine,
Where hope sits brooding like a beauteous dove,
Where time seems young, and life a thing divine.
She was there, again, right when I needed a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on. Thank You for my friend, Lord. She is so special to me. Whenever we cant see each other, there are little thought waves going back and forth between us and little arrow prayers going up for one another during the day.
Thank You for my friend when she brings over a tray of cookies and I pour the tea. Amidst the work, our world stops while we take a little time for each others company.
Help me never to take my friend for granted but to treat her with thoughtfulness. Help me to recognize when she wants my company and when she needs time alone.
I know we will remain close friends for many years to come. For every year we have, I am thankful.

Womans Section
We thought the following article would be of major interest to our readers, as it seems that the symbolism and Biblical teaching regarding marriage seems to be lacking in our churches. We feel that marriage is of major importance and it is essential that every child of God have a clear view of Gods plan and purpose in His design for this God designed and ordained relationship between Husband and wife. This is part two in a series on Marriage in Christ.
Marriage In Christ
The Wife's Role As Helper

"Now the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet for him." Genesis 2:18 Amplified Bible
A wife was created to be a helper to her husband. In our lack of understanding of what God created us to be, women have defined their own role, instead of seeking God for guidance in becoming the wife He designed her to be.
First lets look at what 'helper' means in the language that the Bible was written in. Helper in this verse means "to enclose on all sides". A wife was created to complete her husband. She helps him fulfill God's vision. A husband who submits to God and leads his family in that submission, needs a woman who will help him accomplish the vision God has given him, for his life, his family and their ministry.
Here is the part that most women have trouble with. A woman will think, "Okay, I am a helper, I will help him do this, or be that". Wrong. The husband must define the help he needs. He has been given a vision for your life as a family. He knows his strengths and his weaknesses. He knows where he needs your help. When the husband and wife join themselves to fufill God's vision, working together to accomplish that vision, they compliment each other and a strength develops within their union.
Genesis 2:18 says 'helper meet'. So what does that last word mean? Meet means- suitable for him. God gave the husband a woman who was suitable for him. A woman who would compliment and complete him. It is not by accident when two people are drawn to each other and can't stand being a part from each other, to the point that they make a decision to marry. God designed marriage and He creates the union between two people who He knows will be a perfect blending together. They will 'fit' each other.
Spiritually, we, as the bride of Christ have been chosen. He loved us and desired marriage with us. We have been made suitable for Him by His sacrifice. We are growing into the 'fit' for Him as we mature in Him.
"Let us rejoice and shout for joy! Let us celebrate and ascribe Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has prepared herself. She has been permitted to dress in fine (radient) linen, dazzling and white- for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints." Revelation 19:8,9 Amplified Bible

Churches rocked by shootings
Pastor: If worship services unsafe, 'where can you be safe?'

Tony Hays
Although churches have always been considered sanctuaries -- places of refuge from the strife of the outside world, especially in the Bible Belt South -- the last 10 days in south central Kentucky and middle Tennessee have seen that illusion shattered.
Friday, May 18, a man walked into a revival service at the Greater Oak Missionary Baptist Church in Hopkinsville, Ky. Working his way through the horde of people, Frederick Radford produced a pistol and shot his 25-year-old wife, Nicole Radford, as well as Mary Ann Turner, 47. Both women died. Radford then attempted to hold his 2-year-old son hostage, but police convinced him to surrender.
According to family members, the couple had been separated for some time. Turner, the second victim, was shot while attempting to protect Radford.
At his arraignment Monday, May 21, Radford was charged with seven felony counts, including two counts of capital murder. He also faces charges for endangerment, violating a domestic violence order and possessing a stolen gun.
Two days after Frederick Radford's church rampage, on Sunday morning, May 20, the congregation at Walter Hill Baptist Church, near Murfreesboro, Tenn., was in the middle of its worship service when gunshots rang out from a parking lot near the church. As church members dove under pews, four men fired numerous rounds at each other in what authorities described to WTVF-TV in Nashville, Tenn., as a "drug deal gone sour." At least one round hit the side of the church.
According to Dan Goodwin of the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department, authorities had recovered some four guns used in the shoot-out. They have two suspects in custody -- a 16-year-old juvenile and 18-year-old Richard Bain. Officers are still seeking the second pair of shooters.
In an interview with WTVF, Pastor Charles Leavell, of the Hopkinsville church, said: "Where are we safe at? When we can't even be safe in the church, where can you be safe at?"
On Sept. 15, 1999, Forth Worth, Texas, was rocked when Wedgwood Baptist Church was attacked by a gunman who shot 14 people, killing seven, before taking his own life.
Reporter Tony Hays, whose recent 20-part series on narcotics trafficking received an award from the Tennessee Press Association, co-authored a major series of WND investigative reports on Vice President Al Gore.
