2BC: The Well

Discovering God's Purposes Together

Meet Isabella Jayne Elkins, our new granddaughter

A NEW  ADDITION

Our family continues to grow this year with the birth of our granddaughter  Isabella Jayne.  She is the daughter of our daughter Jennifer and her husband Todd.  Bella weighed in at 7 lbs. 1 oz.and 20 3/4 in long this past Saturday (Nov. 20) at 6:23 am.

Bella joined us 3 1/2 weeks earlier than expected.  She is a sweet little girl who has features of both her mother and father.

Leslie and I feel most blessed with all three daughters now married and now two grandchildren.  God seems to give us the true desire of our hearts.  Leslie and I have prayed for the girls to find good Christian husbands and start their own families.  We have been delighted with the choices the girls have made.  Now we have the joy of our girls having children.  Being a grandparent is indeed GRAND.

Each age of life has God’s blessings for us.  I am enjoying this stage.

Thank you dear Lord for blessing us in each stage of life. — Ray

Meet Wesley Dale Potts

Wesley was born Sunday, June 6 at about 11:00 am to Mary Beth and Dale Potts.  It amazes me how a little guy who basically eats, sleeps, and gets his diaper changed can steal your heart.  Perhaps that is why they are called grandchildren — because it is grand to be with them.  Leslie and I have enjoyed our first days with him.  It is neat watching a daughter fill the role of young mother.  It seems like only yesterday Leslie was the young mother and Mary Beth the baby.  Time passes quickly and little girls grow up to be mothers.

Psalm 78:4 gives a great parental challenge:

We will not hide them from their children;  we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.

The truths of God found in the Bible are taught to us in Sunday School and worship.  We should pass these along to the next generation with enthusiasm.

Are you a part of the next generation of leaders that God is raising up?  At our church we have a long spiritual  family line of those faithful in service and in lifestyle.  These men and women of God were well aware of the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.  Several in our list of faithful are young adults.  They are in the process of presenting to their families the truths of God.

We can’t do it alone.  God’s  plan for us must be accomplished.  Let’s join hands and challenge not just the next generation but this generation as well.

What Would Jesus Do?

WWJD — The phrase is old stuff now.  It has been around so long that many are tired of it and looking for something fresh.  The sad thing is that a search for something fresh may throw away very helpful tools.  Asking oneself , “What Would Jesus Do?” may be the simplest way to help us do the right thing in difficult situations.  To be imitators of Jesus is to set high expectations on ourselves.

May God bless you as you live for Him!
