From Hebrews 11:1... Our Lil Pilgrim Pal


Funny how we think” or “15 Very Sad and Serious Reflections”Taken from BHMA, a Greek Community Paper Funny how a $10.00 bill looks so big when you take it to
church, but so small when you take it to the market. Funny how big an hour serving God looks, and how small 60 minutes are when playing golf, fishing, or playing bridge. Funny how long a couple of hours spent at church are, but how short they are when watching a movie. Funny how we get thrilled when a football (or hockey!) game goes into overtime, but we complain when a sermon is longer than the regular time.  Funny how laborious it is to read a chapter I the Bible and how easy it is to read 200-300 pages of a best-selling novel. Funny how we believe what newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how people scramble to get a front seat at any game, but scramble to get a back seat at a church service. Funny how we cannot fit a gospel meeting into our schedule with yearly planner, but we can schedule for other events at a moment’s notice. Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks to fit a church event into our schedule, but can adjust it for a social event at the last minute. Funny how much difficulty some have learning a simple gospel well enough to tell it to others, but how simple it is for those same people to understand and gossip about someone. Funny how we can’t think of anything to say when we pray, and don’t have any difficult thinking of things to talk to a friend. Funny how we are so quick to take direction from a total stranger when we are lost, but are hesitant to take God’s direction to be found. Funny how people are so consumed with what others think about them rather than what God thinks about them. Funny how people think that they can get more accomplished in a lifetime without God than in an hour with Him. Funny how everyone wants to go to Heaven provided they don’t have to believe, or to think, or to say, or to do anything. God bless you,Lil Pilgrim Pal

You definitely are a true pal! Thanks for your prayers, your encouragement, your support, your cards and letters!

Your contribution to PILGRIM PALS is appreciated more than I let you know. Thanks for all you do for us.

Be encouraged as you continue to trust Him and bless others.

Stay strong, dear one!

Oh, Mr. Fisher! Your little notes to me are more appreciated more than I could ever tell you...they are so encouraging. For years I had pen-pals, and then as we grew older I did all the writing, and they haven't written me in ages...they even forgot my birthday this year! and that used to be the one time I could count on mail from them! So, I know and appreciate the value of correspondence, even if it's just a comment here!

God bless you, brother! Keep looking UP!
