Pedro and Karol will be baptized Friday afternoon, Lord permitting. We had our sixth study tonight in their home. Pray the Lord preserve them until that day, and that they may be humble and powerful servants in the Lord's vineyard.

"Materialism is defined as 'tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual values' (New Oxford American Dictionary). It is being pre-occupied with the material rather than the spiritual. It is what Paul had in mind when he spoke of walking by sight (II Cor. 5:7). Walking by sight is to walk after the things of this world. David Lipscomb wrote, 'One walks by sight who makes mammon his god; lives for getting and hoarding, or else for spending and squandering; estimates worth by wealth, and will count himself a happy man if he can die rich' (Gospel Advocate Commentary on II Corinthians and Galatians)." —Paul Wilmoth https://ringoutthemessage.com/2017/06/05/materialism/

Front moved in this morning, brought rain, unusual for this time of year. Not as cold as I expected, yet. Took Missus to the padaria for lunch, down the avenue, after her weekend away. Final study in series set for tonight with Pedro and Karol. Using this series: http://deusconosco.com/alguemteama They're already talking baptism, we have set up the use of a neighbor's pool down the street. The question is when to do the baptism. Between their work schedules and the cold weather, I hope we can find a sunny late afternoon to do it.

When your car quits in front of the tow truck – Forthright Magazine http://forthright.net/2017/06/05/car-tow-truck "Last week our car took out in the street, overheated at a traffic stop. I quickly entered a one-way street (the wrong way), on a little plaza, and pulled over. Parked in front of me a few yards ahead was a tow truck from our auto insurance company. God is good."

Written just now to a friend: The solution to having nothing to say: Click on "status update," insert cursor in text box, start stream-of-consciousness writing. Just write. Words will appear. Also, ask: * What has been happening in my life, in my head?
* What have I observed or heard?
* What am I thinking or feeling?
* What have I found interesting, funny, disturbing, challenging, intriguing?

We'll say, to a man, in heaven, when we arrive:
"So this is what it means to be alive!
On earth little was truly what it seemed,
But here, like this—such bliss—I never dreamed!"
