Sunday August 28

Saying for the day:And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall never be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art a stumbling-block unto me: for thou mindest not the things of God, but the things of men.Matthew 16:22-23
--------Jack from Jack's Sauna, preached at Last Lutheran Church today. For a lay preacher he does a great job and he is short. He preached on things to do with a rock. Peter was the rock on which Jesus could build his Church but he was also the rock that causes people to stumble. We can either be building blocks in God's Kingdom or we can be rocks that people stumble over trying to get there. Jack made it clear that the choice was ours.
It was another dreary day at Pigeon Falls, dark and overcast, threatening to rain. People were still watching for the white rabbit in a pink sweater as well as Mrs. Wilson McMorison III's cat. Neither one was spotted although a tourist said he might have seen the rabbit out by the edge of town as he was riding in on the train. When he got off he went and looked where he thought the rabbit was but there was no sign of any rabbit.
Just a few days of Pigeon Falls, Pigeon Days left and then the town will return to normal. The number of tourists will decrease and there will be fewer passenger trains coming in. It will stay that way until deer season when the hunters begin to arrive. Perhaps one of the deer hunters wills see the white rabbit if it hasn't been found by then. Well I'll keep you informed.
------Fairly good night last night. Worked on church web page all morning but I need the September calendar from the church to finish it. Betty went to church and served coffee after the guitar service. In the afternoon she washed clothes and I worked in the garage. I put up two new shelves and arranged the trains by type. Betty came and worked on her car loads. After watermelon I worked on the family web page but am far from finished. Well I need a breathing treatment.
