Our View Out The Front Window May 27, 2018

I neglected to take a picture of our view out the window in the rest area where were slept a few hours Saturday morning. Then I remembered to check the dash cam and found plenty of view pictures there. This is our view in a rest area near Bidwell, Ohio.

While checking the dash cam I decided to use a picture from that for our view this week at the Lazy OD Ranch.

This was a few minutes later. We had a toad strangling rain Saturday afternoon.

Later in the evening the sun was back out strong.

I hope you have a great Sunday. We are on our way to be in church with Bro. Shobanke today. Thanks for dropping in.

Happy 75th Birthday Papaw

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in from a rolling BoggsMobile. We are homeward bound. This week coming up is a giant week. The final inspection on the house that is being built for me to live in is supposed to take place. We will be one huge step closer to completion. There are lots of loose ends to tie up before I can say it is done, but  I am looking forward to beginning the moving in process!

We had a fantastic time this last week at Bible Holiness Church in Elkton, Virginia. It is always wonderful to be with Pastor Brent and Sis. Teresa Gabbard and the precious people of BHC. They have been true friends to our family! We love them dearly!

Memorial Day is a national holiday on Monday, but it is also a holiday for our Boggs family. It is my Papaw Eugene's birthday! I went through the archives and found several pictures that I wanted to repost today. This is an extra special birthday. He will be 75 years young! 

I wanted to start the birthday celebration a little early today. I would like to wish my Papaw a very happy happy happy birthday!!! I love you Papaw more than you and I love ice cream!!! You know that is a whole lot of love! 😀 Thank you from the bottom my heart all that you do for us! 

I do not have all the right words to tell you all about my amazing Papaw. He is absolutely awesome!! I think anyone that has met him will agree. 

Papaw and Mamaw have put up with me for years. They have let me claim their spare room as my own. I have enjoyed every moment I have spent with them! I will forever cherish those memories. 

Papaw taught my Dad to have a no quit attitude and Dad passed that on to me. Papaw shows us a determined attitude by example every day. It would be easy for him to sit down and quit.  He is persistent and pushes through the obstacles of life and overcomes. 

He is a hard worker always doing something to help others. There is no way possible that I can properly thank him for all the work he has done on the house project. He has kept it going while we have had to be rolling! He is always doing something behind the scenes for us. 

Papaw is a true family man. He is constantly looking out for everyone in his family. 

Papaw is a great cheerleader and encourager. 

We are thankful God has kept him through sickness and has allowed us to have him with us longer. It truly is a miracle that he is alive! I am so grateful to God for answering our prayers. Please keep him in your prayers. A touch from God would be a wonderful birthday present for Papaw. 

Papaw is the life of the party. He makes everything fun! I often say Papaw can do or fix anything. This picture below shows he can even conquer a Grizzly Bear. Papaw is pretty much a Super Hero!

Thank you for visiting with us today. I hope you have a great holiday weekend.

Revival In Pictures - Elkton, Virginia

This has been an incredible week of revival and we are hesitant to leave. When I think about it, the last several revivals have been the same way. Any of these four Virginia revivals could have easily continued on a few more nights. I love that. It is a whole lot better than wishing revival would hurry up and end!

Pastor Brent Gabbard and his family have been at Bible Holiness in Elkton nearly five years and it is almost hard to imagine when they were not here. Both of their girls have married preachers here and Bro. Brent and Teresa are now grandparents of two beautiful babies. I think they are settled in for the long haul, by God's grace.

The Bible Holiness people are gracious folks. They have been so kind to us through the years and we appreciate their friendship. We have not been here since December 2015, yet they welcomed us with open arms like we had only been gone a few weeks.

They love to have church too! That is a super big plus. God seems to love to move in that type of atmosphere and I love to be right in the middle of it.

I wish we could stay, but we have too many things pulling on us. There are a few things left to do before the final inspection on the house. I plan to work on those things Saturday afternoon and Monday. It is safe to say that our few days home will be completely full.

Also, Bro. Shobanke flew into Cincinnati on Thursday. I arranged to have him picked up and he is with Bro. Wade Hicks now. We plan to be in church with him in West Harrison, Indiana Sunday morning and then we will take him to Highway of Holiness in Hamilton, Ohio Sunday night.

He will stay with us until he leaves for Nigeria on Thursday. We are looking forward to seeing him!

It is time to get to the Revival In Pictures from Bible Holiness in Elkton, Virginia. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Thank you for reading today.


Pastor Brent Gabbard, Sis. Teresa and their grandchildren.

One of the ladies delivered lunch to the fellowship hall in this Amazon box. Wow! Same day delivery on home cooked meals? Maybe Amazon should consider that.

What Kind of Face is THAT, Whitney?!Lol
