Fennell Visitor January 14, 2001



A warm welcome is extended to everyone. It is our prayer that God will be pleased with our worship this day and that everyone will be encouraged. If you are visiting with us, we extend a special welcome to you and invite you to return often.




Life is a garden,
Good friends are the flowers
and time spent together...
life's happiest hours
And friendships like flowers,
blooms ever more fair...
when carefully tended
by dear friends who care.
..Helen Steiner Rice

And God Said NO!

I asked God to take away my pride,
and God said, NO!

He said it was not for Him to take away, but for me to give up!
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
and God said, NO!

He said, her spirit is whole, and her body is only temporary!
I asked God to grant me patience,
and God said, NO!

He said, that patience is a by-product of tribulation;

it isn't granted, it's earned! I asked God to give me happiness,
and God said, NO!

He said, he gives blessings; happiness is up to me!
I asked God to spare me pain, and God said, NO!

He said, "suffering draws you apart from worldly cares

and brings you closer to me!" I asked God to make my spirit grow
and God said, NO!

He said, I must grow on my own, but he will prune me to make

me more fruitful! I asked God if he loved me,
and God said, YES!!!

He gave his only son who died for me,
and I will be in heaven someday because I believe!
I asked God to help me love others as much as he loves me,
and God said,
"Ah, finally, you have the idea!"
