Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

Just a quick minute checking in...

We're off to The Dalles in a few minutes to go grocery shopping. I need to start planning better so we aren't running into town so much. But when we used to go 2 1/2 hours to stock up, now we only go an hour and it doesn't seem so far away!

But if I had planned better we would have shopped Saturday on our way home from the dentist in Portland:) Oh well!

So today is grocery day. I also have a couple of flyers to take to the school, one for VBS and one for camp. It's nice they will send them home with the kids for us. Last night was Baccalaureate. We have 3 Seniors graduating. After the service 2 of the seniors went out and painted the street. Apparently that is Glenwood tradition!

I got flowers planted in the yard Monday and also in the flower pots near the church. It's time to spruce things up so people in the community know we are a church who cares. I am working just one flower bed at a time. I'm hoping this will deter Sandy from digging up my freshly planted flowers! I planted some Dahlia bulbs over the weekend and in less than hour she had dug up one bunch and who knows where they are. She probably ate them!

Tonight is the spelling bee at school for K-8th grade, hosted by the Honor Society. Becca is participating and finally decided last night that maybe she should practice the words. There are 558 words on her list. We got through 150. So, we'll see how she does.

Well, sounds like Butch is ready to go. More later...

Blessings from Glenwood!
