Hello to all

Dave in Tenn:
Hi John.  It's very good to meet you.  Thanks for the intro.  It's an encouragement to me.

Hi John T.
It's good to hear from you, I was thinking the other day on the peace and rest that is in the Lord, and of his many blessings.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


John from Kentucky:
Hello.  Good name.

I don't know about living in Indiana.  I'll try not to judge.

Dennis Vogel:
Welcome to the forum John.

John T.:
Thank you gentleman. That verse given by Joel sums up nicely what our Lord will do for us; thanks for that Joel. Dave, we all need encouragement and just reading what has been said has been uplifting for me.God bless you!

Dennis, I appreciate your welcoming kind sir. John from Kentucky;I couldn't help but smile. I have known and am related to a lot of people from Kentucky and I find that people there are good folk. My wife is originally from Owensboro and we get along pretty well after 20 years of marriage. As for the name we share there is more to a name than just a name! After Christ called and I turned and I heard,I went about saying to myself aloud "GOD IS GOOD" and I don't know why but I kept smiling to myself and saying that. Some weeks later I was having a bad spell and could hardly move to get out of bed that particular morning.

My wife was up before I and she will help me to get up and moving when I need her. That morning she had been on the laptop and she had for some reason been looking at name meanings and origins.She had looked at my name.She told me to look so I did. The name John means "God is Gracious" and then she showed me my middle name which is Toby. It means "God is Good". Instantly I felt better and the smile in my heart has not faltered but has grown with everything Christ is showing me. Indeed, GOD is good!

Worshiping in Truth and Spirit,
