We would love to see you at the Truck Rally
You watch me when I travel and when I rest.
You are familiar with all my ways.

Visiting Davisville Church With a TFC Chapel
Southampton, PA – Sunday, May 26
I love enjoying my morning coffee as the scenery changes before my eyes.
Many flags reminded us that it was Memorial Day weekend as we traveled toward Philadelphia.
The chapel just after we got it set up in the church parking lot.
Some of the church members were already busy preparing lunch.
This is where Tish and Howard Jones have attended church for many years.
Howard was a TFC chaplain from the mid ’80s to mid ’90s and then TFC’s President for a few years. He is now President Emeritus and a volunteer chaplain in Elkton, Maryland.
Some of the cooks came to see the chapel during a break before church started. It was fun listening to Howard tell about some of his experiences on a chapel.
The worship team.
A Bible verse that the congregation repeated.
I love this song.
Pastor Tim Wilson challenged us to move out of our comfort zone this summer and reach out to those around us.
We are Christ’s ambassadors.
God reconciled us so we can be part of reconciling others.
Jesus didn’t just give the truth. He is the Truth.
God loves setting people free.
God loves restoring people
Jesus’ mission statement: Seek and save the lost.
Jesus’ first words to his disciples: I will MAKE you fishers of men.
Jesus’ last words to his disciples: Go and MAKE disciples.
Following the worship service, those who wished to stay enjoyed lunch on the church lawn.
It looks sunny and warm, but it was breezy and cool. Had it been warmer, the worship service would have been held outside as well.
We were pleasantly surprised to discover that Eleanor and Aaron Fox attend this church. I think we knew that years ago, but had forgotten. Aaron served as a chaplain and built two chapels in the early ’90s.
We enjoyed a busy early afternoon, telling people about the chapel, and listening to more of Howard’s stories before heading west on the Pennsylvania turnpike.
We got off at the Morgantown (PA) exit to meet Titus Beam – a TFC friend for many years – who had called a few days earlier to say that he had a donation of about fifty Winross model trucks for the Truck Rally Winross and Model Truck Auction on June 22.
He doesn’t live far from this exit, so we made plans to make this connection near Morgantown.
This was not quite the end to our day…
…but you will have to come back tomorrow night to see whose birthday we celebrated after the chapel was put in its parking space at the office.
We had only fifteen minutes to freshen up and get to her daughter’s house for the surprise.
Your life is a journey
you must travel with a deep consciousness of God.

Chuck E. Cheese’s
With Jana, Ian, Jared, and Jesse
Saturday, May 25
This trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s was to celebrate Jared’s birthday a few days earlier.
The boys enjoy having their siblings along.
I asked Jana if she prefered to go or stay home alone, as she was in charge of babysitting the boys while their parents were at a wedding.
The boys like to invite their cousin Gloria, but she, her mom, and sisters were at Chincoteague.
Jana thought it would be fun, because it has been a long time since she was here.
Racing is always a popular game for the boys.
Jesse was pleased to win a long strip of tickets.
Our brunch: Cinnamon Sticks, Cheese Sticks, Cheese Pizza, and Apple Pizza.
Chuck even showed up on this visit.
I should have had a video of Jesse playing this game!
Looking over their “loot” – the things they purchased with tickets.
We had a great morning.
Think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

Jared’s Birthday Party
Tuesday, May 21
I told him that I needed a new photo. This is what I got. This is surely my favorite Jared.
The official birthday photo.
After a delicious grilled chicken dinner, Jana served Jared’s favorite chocolate, peanut butter cup cake.
Baked and decorated by Jana.
Can you tell that he is happy about this celebration?
Nine candles this year.
We quickly went to gift time, because we had to leave for Sabrina’s graduation from YTI.
I had no idea of what was under the black garbage bag.
He did a happy dance when he saw golf clubs.
Then it was time to check it out.
A hug for Dad.
We always give the birthday person a bag of “goodies” along with the promise of a special dinner or something else they want to do. Jared chose Chuck-E-Cheese.
A card from Roy and Deb.
I think Deb knew that he was getting golf clubs.
Wisdom finds rest in the heart of an understanding person.
