HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to Keith Green (July 10), Alan Robertson (July 10) and JudyTyson (July 15).
O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favour, we pray, on your servants Keith, Alan and Judy as they begin another year. Grant that they may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen their trust in your goodness all the days of their lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
CONGRATULATIONS to Jim & Deborah Smith in celebrating their 38th Wedding Anniversary (July 11th).
By the power of your Holy Spirit, pour out the abundance of your blessing upon this man and this woman. Defend them from every enemy. Lead them into all peace. Let their love for each other be a seal upon their hearts, a mantle about their shoulders, and a crown upon their foreheads. Bless them in their work and in their companionship; in their sleeping and in their waking; in their joys and in their sorrows; in their life and in their death. Finally, in your mercy, bring them to that table where your saints feast for ever in your heavenly home; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
WE REMEMBER the late David McNiell Bolton who died 10 years ago on July 10 at age 82;
Dorothy Ann Barber who died three years ago on July 13 at age 88; and
Mike Byron who died seven years ago on July 14 at age 82.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
