Weekend Woundup and Weview November 30

Our Thanksgiving weekend was action packed with family, food, fun and fellowship. We already posted about Thanksgiving dinner at the Morgan's on Thursday. Saturday afternoon we had our Boggs Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great time. I hope to post pictures of the dinner tomorrow.

Sunday morning I was scheduled to preach at Dodds (right next door to the Lazy OD Ranch). I sure appreciate Pastor Kelly Rogers making us feel so welcome whenever we are in town. We also had several family members in service that we do not get to see very often. That was good too.

After church Sunday morning several of us ventured down to Lebanon to drink a little salsa at Acapulco. 

It was very good as usual. I was going to snap a group picture outside but it was a little too chilly to be standing around for posing for pictures.

Sunday evening we went to home church at Dryden Rd. Our Pastor was gone preaching so our associate Pastor, Bro. Gary Lee was running the service and did and excellent job as usual. It was a super treat to see everyone and we are looking forward to being there Tuesday for our Planning and Vision Service for City Reach Dayton. That is a normal service night for Dryden Rd. but I hope we have a good representation for the Dayton area churches.

It was also a special treat to get to see Bro. Dennis and Sis. Lynn Heath and their children. Sis. Lynn is originally from this area and they were based in Ohio for years as evangelists. I suppose they were here visiting family and Bro. Dennis preached tonight at Dryden Rd. He preached a tremendous message on Faith and it certainly built mine. If the response in the altar was any indication I would say the sermon helped lots of others too.

Bro. Jeff Roberts sent these last two pictures to us. Thanks Bro. Jeff.

Looks like KJ is taking over!

That pretty much wraps up our weekend. Thanks for reading.

View Out The Front Window November 29, 2015

Check out our posts from the last week at the links below.

This is our view out the front window this week. Some days when I am working in the barn I will open the front doors so our view is better but Saturday was cooler and rainy so this is the view.

Our view out the front door.

This morning we will be singing and preaching at Dodds. Should be a great Sunday.

Thanks for reading.

Thanksgiving Continued

Happy Saturday!

This is Odie reporting from Ohio. I hope you all had a superb thanksgiving week. It has been wonderful to spend time with family. Our celebration continues today with the Boggs clan.

As Dad told you in Thursday's post I received an excellent report from my eye doctors Wednesday. I am Praising God for my 20/20 vision!

Another thing I am thanking God for is that my Papaw Danny is healthy. Last Thanksgiving Papaw was very close to a heart attack, and we did not have a clue that he was sick. Doctors told us he would not have survived an attack. We are extremely grateful for Gods mercy to our family!

God is so good to us! We are so unworthy of His mercy and grace. I am reminded of a quote that is so true. "Life is fragile handle with prayer." I am thankful for prayer! I am thankful that God answers prayer. We have relied on God and God always works!

Thursday evening and Friday morning I went shopping with my Morgan family. We had a good time and managed to find a few good deals and not get beat up or even get into a fight.

Papaw and I talked about God's goodness while enjoying frozen yogurt. Everyday is better when ice cream/ frozen yogurt is involved. It really helped us survive the Black Friday madness.

Have a fantastic weekend!

A Very Morgan Thanksgiving

City Reach Dayton

If you are in the Dayton area please come be with us Tuesday night at Dryden Rd. We will be having the Planning and Vision Service for City Reach Dayton. I will be preaching by God's grace and sharing my vision for City Reach with the churches from Dayton area. Everyone is welcome to attend. I would love for excitement to build for this City Reach next July.


Kelly Jo and Odie went down to Hillsboro on Wednesday to the Morgan ranch to help prepare for the big Morgan Thanksgiving extravaganza on Thursday. 

I sure hope Odie did not prepare anything after what I see her buying below!

By the time I arrived late Thursday morning the ladies were putting everything in order and setting the table.

It was a table of food fit for a king! Once the prayer of Thanksgiving was offered my Kelly Jo's Dad, Danny, we dug right in and enjoyed every bite of it!

It was great to spend Thanksgiving Day with Kelly Jo's family. We spend a lot of Thanksgivings out of town eating in a Cracker Barrel so to be home this year is extra special. It was a very Morgan Thanksgiving. Thank God for all of His goodness.

We will celebrate Thanksgiving with my family Saturday evening by God's grace.
