Since the weather has been so gloomy I decided to liven my life up a bit with another bout of diverticulosis. I just finished the last of my antibiotic and out comes the sun. I hope that is a good omen and I have seen the last of that for a while, at least until I figure I can
get by with eating things with little peanuts and seeds in them once again. I guess we never learn. Marcia brought me down some jars of raspberry jam with all kinds of little seeds and I should have given
them to Ralph but I love her jam so I had to try it. "Be sure your sin will find you out" the Bible says. Not that there is any sin in eating raspberry jam if you have no problems with it; but, for me, it is because I do.
That said I hope you are all enjoying November and the time change. I am much happier with God's time because I never seem to really adjust to the fast time. And it has been nice that so far there has been no snow. I am perfectly content to let it snow on the mountains
so the skiers can enjoy but here in the valleys is another matter altogether.
Our church has finally decided it is too cold in the pavilion and has been meeting in the Conference Center at the Linnell Motel, but hopefully this week the fire marshal has inspected the building we are going to be meeting in and we will be able to move our stuff and
ourselves there for this coming Sunday. We will be meeting in the old Kreske building on Congress Street in downtown Rumford, and hopefully I spelled the name right. It has been a while since I have seen that
name. This past week from Monday through Wednesday evenings we have had meetings with Michael Peterson in the building on East Andover Road. Brother Peterson has a healing ministry and we certainly can use that. We need all the healings we can get there is so much sickness and cancer everywhere. Rather ironically I missed all but the Wednesday meeting where I had the diverticulosis. If I had been as obedient as I should have been I would have gone anyway as the Bible says we are to go and be prayed for and anointed with oil and the prayer of the faithful will heal the sick. But I am either tireder or lazier than I used to be and I didn't do it.
I am sorry to see that the town did not support Tri-Town. I wish the issue had been on the ballot because a lot of people did not know about the meeting Monday. At least if it hadn't passed I, for one,
would have been happier to know that there were more than a handful of people deciding the issue. For myself I think it is a mistake to have only one ambulance service because a monopoly can pretty much dictate
how things are to go and how much one will have to pay. It may be okay for now but down the road it may be a different story. Time will tell.
My deadline looms so that is all for now. Take care and God bless.
