Saturday is Mark Blakey and Thomas Watterson’s birthday. Ellis and Michelle came by while I was in town. I had someone else coming, but I guess they couldn’t find where I lived.

Sunday, Brother Charles was back in church. His message came from Mark chapters 1 & 2. Thoughts: Mark 1:38  “Let go,” vs. 41 “Be clean,” “Follow me.”  Mark 2:14 “Follow me,” that is to Follow Christ. 

I stopped by John Stephens on my way home and some of his children were there. They were celebrating Max’s birthday.
