Grace and Peace,
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red, brown, yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world…
“Do we not all have one father?
Has not one God created us?
Why do we deal treacherously
each against his brother so as
to profane the covenant of our fathers?” (Malachi 2: 10)
There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither slave nor free,
there is no male and female,
for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3: 28)
We are all one in Christ Jesus…
Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David
In the summer of 1986 I served as a Chaplain on the cardiology floor (11th floor) of the Baptist Hospital, now called Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
One of my responsibilities was to go room to room and check in on patients, see how they were doing, pray with them and their families and offer any other kind of spiritual counsel and support.
I entered one room and saw the patient sitting upright in his bed as he was flanked by two gentlemen, who happened to be family members.
I introduced myself as being one of the “Ministers” in the hospital and we engaged in some friendly conversation for about five minutes. After a slight pause in our dialogue, the patient looked at me quizzically and said, “You’re awfully young to be one of the “Administrators” of the hospital.” (I was 23 years old at the time!)
The Queen B sits on her throne, a rocking chair from Cracker Barrel.
Her reign covers towns with names like Gloucester, Mathews, West Point, Ware Neck, Gwynn Island, Urbanna, and Saluda.
Her reign reaches out to bodies of waters with names like Chesapeake, Rappahannock, Mobjack, and York.
From the Commonwealth of Virginia down to the Sunshine State called Florida, so has the train of her regal robe traveled.
The Queen B is married to King Doug, better known in the royal family as Senior.
The King’s thick Virginia accent is soothing to the ears as the phrase, “We are going about the house” would be pronounced, “We are going aboat the hoase.”
The royal family consists of two Princes and two Princesses, an equal balance of beauty, brawn, brains, love, and loyalty.
Prince Doug, commonly called Junior.
Princess Ellen, the Baby Sis.
Three of the Royal Children share the Queen B and King Doug’s full DNA genealogy, with Prince David only sharing the Queen B’s genes as a traveling Court Jester made his way through the kingdom during the difficult Civil War of 1962-1963. With Prince David’s striking resemblance, the family has teased the Queen B that perhaps the traveling Court Jester was actually the King of Rock N Roll in disguise…
