"Take ye away the stone."

Pictures of the sunrise this morning over the Pacific Ocean from our porch!

Tonight I was able to go to ladies prayer time and then the evening service.  I  must say that I really love my husband's preaching.  The Lord always speaks to me.  Tonight was no different.  My husband preached about when the Lord commanded the people to roll the stone away from Lazarus' tomb.  The Lord could have raised Lazarus from the dead with the stone in front of the tomb, but the people had to do their part and exercise their faith by rolling the stone away first.  He asked us, "What is the stone that the Lord wants you to roll away?"  Is it the stone of doubt, discouragement, disdain, indecision, or fear?  Hit me right between the eyes.  Fear is my largest stone right now.  Fear of the unknown.  Fear of pain.  Fear of nausea!  I am going to ask the Lord for His help to roll that stone away!

After church we had some pictures taken.  I wanted some photos of us before I start chemo on Wednesday.  It was a blessing to see our people, sing songs, share praises, see the happy little children run, pray for one another, and hear the preaching of God's word.  I love our church!  I love you, Foundations Baptist Church!!
