Little problems

Posted 04-07-2021 at 03:42 PM by Igor Blevin

Because Knoxville doesn't have a branch of either of my banks, I got Postal Money Orders payable to International Van Lines for final payment in Knoxville. The Post Office won't take a credit card for a PMO. Cash, Travelers Checks, or debit card only.

I don't like using a debit card that way, so I would have to pay cash. I didn't know they take Travelers Checks. Who even uses them anymore? If I got a PMO in Knoxville, I would have to drive to Nashville or North Carolina to withdraw...

So, I am getting down to the last couple of days packing, maybe 3 at most. I run out of packing paper. Off to Lowe’s Home Improvement store. Nope, they are ALL OUT of packing paper. OK, off to Home Depot. They have smaller packing paper but it will do, so I buy 2 packs of 200 sheets.

A couple of hours packing, and the packaging tape has run out. So off to Lowe’s to buy a 2-pack of tape. Go home, box items, happy as a clam.

Later that night…

Posted 04-05-2021 at 11:44 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Zechariah 9:12,14 - "Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope even today I declare that I will restore double to you......The Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning."

Many believers – especially young people, ask about commissioning -- they want to know who should commission them, when they should be commissioned, and, spiritually speaking, are they already commissioned?
The truth is, it's God that actually commissions His...
