‘Peanut’ and ‘First lady’?? Congrats to Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter.  The former President and First Lady celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Thursday. The couple married July 7, 1946, in their hometown of Plains, Georgia.   Jimmy was 21, and Rosalynn was 18.  They had grown up just a few miles from each other. Rosalynn was a close friend of Jimmy’s younger sister, but they share their first kiss until the summer of 1945.  Secret of their marriage?  “[we] give each other plenty of space.”

 

Biblical Proportions: “The Ark Encounter,” a 510-foot replica of Noah’s Ark as described in the Old Testament, opened in Kentucky on Thursday.  More than 4,000 people made it through the gate by mid-day.  Plates from New York, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Alabama, Florida and Pennsylvania among others, appeared in the first row parking lot alone…http://relm.ag/5cdHjUO      The $100 million attraction was built by the organization ‘Answers in Genesis’, the same organization behind the nearby Creation Museum.   Interested? The Ark Encounter is located right off I-75 in Williamstown, Kentucky, half way between Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky.   The Ark is 40 miles east from its popular sister attraction, the Creation Museum.    https://arkencounter.com/

Reflections…  Franklin Graham speaking at a recent prayer rally in Juneau, Alaska shared greetings from his father, Evangelist Billy Graham.

“He doesn’t think anybody remembers who he is,” Franklin said with a laugh,

“so he’ll say, ‘If you meet anybody who remembers me, tell ’em hello.’”

For more than 60 years Billy Graham shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with millions around the world. As his ministry continues through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), Mr. Graham gets updates at his home in the mountains of North Carolina.

UPDATE:  The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team is sending a team of chaplains to Dallas, Texas to help provide emotional and spiritual care.

“Pray for the families of the officers killed in Dallas Thursday ight and for the recovery of those ambushed and wounded at the protest,” said Franklin Graham. “Join me in praying for the communities in Louisiana and Minnesota as well.”

The Rapid Response Team is a nationwide network of crisis-trained chaplains ready to deploy at a moment’s notice.      https://goo.gl/xkvby2

 

 

Pray concern: At least two snipers opened fire on police officers in Dallas, Texas last night, fatally wounding five officers and injuring at least 7 others.  The ‘ambush’ took place after hundreds gathered to protest shootings this week in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban St. Paul, Minnesota.     http://goo.gl/8e2GS9

 

“The men and women of the Dallas Police Department and DART selflessly ran into harm’s way to protect the lives of others. Our thoughts and prayers go out to these officers and their families, and to those who have been injured.

May God (continue) to protect them and bring peace upon Dallas.”
