Fennell Visitor January 28, 2001


Welcome to everyone. We pray that God will be pleased with our worship today and that everyone will be strengthened and encouraged from having met together. If you are visiting with us we extend a special welcome to you and invite you to return often.

Have you found errors in the bulletin? If so, surely they were no worse than the following.

After the death of a deacon in the church, his wife was mortified to read in the bulletin this announcement: "Deacon Brown has gone home to roost." Upon calling the preacher she was assured it was an error and it would be corrected the next issue. The announcement should have read: "Deacon Brown goes home to rest." Anxiously the distressed widow waited for the next week’s bulletin, and hurried to see the correction which read: "Deacon Brown goes home to roast."

Errors are often made in publications. Please have the grace to over look such in this bulletin. We will try to make it as free of errors as possible

Life's Tug Of War

Life can seem ungrateful ~ and not always kind.
Life can pull at your heartstrings ~ and play with your mind.
Life can be blissful ~ and happy and free.
Life can put beauty ~ in the things that you see

Life can place challenges ~ right at your feet.
Life can make good ~ of the hardships that we meet.
Life can overwhelm you ~ and make your head spin.
Life can reward those ~ determined to win

Life can be hurtful ~ and not always fair.
Life can surround you ~ with people who care.
Life clearly does offer ~ its ups and its downs.
Life's days can bring you ~ both smiles and frowns.
Life teaches us to take ~ the good with the bad.
Life is a mixture ~ of happy and sad.


Take the life that you have ~ and give it your best.
Think positive, be happy ~ let God do the rest.
Take the challenges ~ that life has laid at your feet.
Take pride and be thankful ~ for each one you meet.
To yourself give forgiveness ~ if you stumble and fall

Take each day that is dealt you ~ and give it your all.
Take the love that you're given ~ and return it with care.
Have faith that when needed ~ it will always be there.
Take time to find the beauty ~ in the things that you see

Take life's simple pleasures ~ let them set your heart free.
The idea here is simply ~ to even the score.
As you are met and faced with ~ Life's Tug Of War.
