  2. I'm a little late to it, but welcome aboard, @BrotherTony. We're glad to have you.
  3. If there were decent mom and pop pizza places here, we'd patronize them. But there aren't. At least Papa Murphy's is fresh. heehee Because of the horrible response to covid by our governor, so many businesses took a hit. We are not rich by any means, but are glad when we can support them...even if they are franchise.
  4. Our men had their quarterly meeting Wednesday evening before church (they discuss things before we have our quarterly business meeting). They usually eat supper while having their meeting. So I ordered Chicago Style stuffed pizza from Papa Murphy's. They enjoyed it greatly. Personally, I'm not fond of NY style pizza, but I'm not fond of Chicago style either. LOL
  5. One of my dearest friends lost her father today. We are rejoicing that he is in Glory, but those of us who have lost our dads know the grief that settles in. I used to spend time at her house during days off from college and grew to dearly love her parents. Her mom is still here, but is not well. I would appreciate prayer for the Hughes family as they begin their journey of grieving. Thank you. It is a wonderful comfort to know he's with the Lord.
  6. Thank you, @PastorMatt. Keeping the family in prayer. Even though I didn't always comment on his posts, I admired his obvious love for the Lord and his desire for people to learn the truths of scripture.
  7. Sadly, there is no Chick-fil-A near us. The closest is over 2 1/2 hours away. Maybe one day they will move further west and we'll benefit.
  8. Today we had potluck at church. The church bought fried chicken...and the deli gave us the wrong order. So - they called us and told us our order was still there. They GAVE it to us, so we had an overabundance of chicken. Not only did we feast on it for lunch, we were able to send a bunch home with folks, and deliver some to others. We also had ham, au gratin potatoes, pasta salad, potato salad, veggies, and two different cakes for dessert (lemon, and strawberry shortcake). The best part of the day was the preaching/teaching. On our first Sundays, we have an afternoon service instea
  9. The church my husband now pastors had 3 men acting as pulpit supply on Sunday mornings - for 5 years. When we joined the church, my husband was asked to join the roster of pulpit supply by the pastor who founded the church and was supplying the speakers. The members of the church, however, asked him to candidate for pastor. He did, and now is pastor. Two years ago, he had an accident that put him in the hospital for weeks and laid up at home longer. The pastor whose church founded ours graciously supplied pulpit fill while my husband was down. So, I guess in a nutshell, pulpit supply
  10. Tomorrow is our church potluck day (we do it every first Sunday). Mom made spaghetti, and white cake/lemon icing for dessert. I made a beef stroghanoff gravy and rice, and a green salad. Others will be bringing different things (I know sloppy joes are coming, too). So tonight I tried out the rice and gravy. Yum!
  11. As Alan posted, they are here: Please go to the link and read the rules - it's good for all members to know them. It really does not matter if you see a difference in the wording of two different versions, as you mentioned to Alan. Nor does it matter if Jesus spoke Old English (which all of us know He did not) or Hebrew, Latin, Greek, or Russian. The fact is that OB is a KJV site. Refrain from using other versions. Thank you.
  12. I love the book of Proverbs! I used to go through it monthly, but now don't every month. However, I still love to read it. I like other proverbs as well, especially those that have a biblical truth to them. "Two wrongs don't make a right." "No man is an island." "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." I use this one often. =D "Better late than never." I heard a nice addition to this years ago: "But better never late." "There's no such thing as a free lunch." "Discretion is the better part of valor." Just a few of the ones I like.
  13. Here in WA state, our governor began with the "two weeks to flatten the curve" nonsense. We complied with the two weeks because we felt that we needed to show our concern for the community. Well, the two weeks stretched to more. Hubs prayed about what to do, and on Mothers' Day we held a parking lot service... That was the "compromise" that the governor came up with because of protests. Outside services were "allowed," but not inside. The following week it was raining, so we went inside...and have been there since. So far, the governor has issued 26 emergency declarations, in order
  14. My uncle has gone to Glory. Thank you for your prayer.
  15. I am currently talking to my brother...no symptoms whatsoever. =D
  16. Thank you. Glad to know you're home and recovering. Will be praying for you. ~~~~ And the other day we received the news that my oldest brother had tested positive. He is showing no symptoms, and is going to get a second test (because so many of the positives are false). But he is also going to see his doctor and getting on a regimen of things to combat the virus if it is indeed in him.
  17. Well, I guess the medical world doesn't realize that. Imagine that...an archaic word being used in modern times. Unprecedented. lol
  18. I don't think so, either - although that is where things head when one decides to "make it more understandable.' If it ain't broke (and it ain't) don't "fix" it.
  19. I haven't commented on here so far...folks are doing a well enough job without my input. lol However, I had to comment on this one... Bruit is still in use today. Oh, maybe not in everyday speak, but it is used. Anyone who has had things done to/with their veins, heart/ or has had stroke issues would likely know this word. A bruit is a noise...hmmm...fits the definition you gave, Salyan. It is a noise heard through a stethoscope which can indicate a clogged artery. It can also indicate an imminent stroke (something that I actually learned about 25 years ago). So, in effect, it is
  20. My aunt got mixed up about the days - they actually did not remove him from the oxygen til this morning. However, he passed as soon as they did. Thankfully his wife was able to be with him. Thank you for praying.
  21. So my Dad's remaining brother contracted covid, as did his wife. (Just FYI - this is not a thread about covid, so don't make it so...just know that masking, "social" distancing, isolation, etc., were all practiced by the family and yet he and his wife contracted covid. Viruses are gonna virus...) My uncle, Dave, ended up in ICU on a respirator. Today I was told that they had to take him off everything - they had to remove air from around his heart and lungs, so the oxygen had to be removed. He had suffered a number of strokes and there is no brain activity. And they said it is only a matt
