Phillip-Caught up in his chariot

God is so awesome! It was so good for our family last week to be able to "step out" of our normal field of labor of pastoring at Mt. Carmel and be able to minister in a revival at Red Bay, AL. It has been several years since we actually held a revival. It was so refreshing! The anointing was so powerful and overwhelming on Phillip. I must say it was a different anointing and much more powerful than Phillip says he has experience in a long time. The "wild man" jumped in his chariot and never looked back until the revival was over. For those who know him well, you would have been amazed at the speed that he was going. He moved like lightning across the stage and leaped off it a few times as well. God also moved mightily during the altar services! It was definitely a reviving and refreshing time for the members there as well as for our family. Amazing how God blesses you while you are obeying and ministering for Him. Praise the Lord! Many youth were in the altar for quite awhile on Saturday, with many leaving with victory in their souls.


I finally figured out how to compress my pics to be able to upload them. Thanks for the tip Sis. Smith!

The tomato to the left is one straight from my dad's garden. He had to save it for me. No one can convince me that God doesn't specialize in the small details to bring a smile to one of His own. This mouseketter was so excited to receive this "mickey" tomato. No, I didn't eat it. I kept it and admired it so much that it spoiled on me. I probably couldn't have brought myself to eat it anyway. Needless to say, I also got a pic on my cellphone of it to show others. Pics was the only way I knew to "preserve" it.

For those who know who "Susie" is, I thought you'd get a kick out of this picture. "Susie" has grown legs and is up walking around. This "Susie" was noticed wandering around in Cleveland, TN during the assembly. (Sis. Smith I knew you would want to help "Susie" find her way back home.)

Trying to keep my hummer(s) fueled up.

How many of you have those wonderful little "sword fighters" flying around your house?? You know, those little green guys that have beaks that look like 1" needles. Well, they must love the mixture I put in my 16 oz feeder because they are guzzling it here lately in about two days. Or they are multiplying like bunnies. The past couple of times Megan and I have been swimming, we have been dive bombed by these little guys as they go zooming by us. Here we are playing in the pool, minding our own business (occasionally looking over at them), and the little "attackers" start invading our space. I guess 10-15' away from their feeder is not enough for them or is it the real problem is they are totally ticked off at me for having only one feeder. There is commonly about 10 of these little guys trying to get to only 5 feeding holes with about three others that are flying (standing) in line to get to it as well. Talk about some "people" needing a sermon on unity, sharing, and preferring your fellow hummingbird. Sis. Marcia do you have one of those sermons handy?? So I guess I'll go buy another feeder to promote sharing.

By the way, how in the world do you post pics. I have snail dial up. Three times I have try to upload pics, but each time it claims that it cannot do it. Does it have to do with dial up or am I doing something wrong?? Okay, you blogger pros, HELP! I have pics of the hair cuts and a real interesting blog that is centered around one pic in particular. But without the pics, this is getting a little boring.
