A SERENDIPITY

I’ve been struggling lately trying to adjust the volume on my new Lyric hearing aids to telephone usage.  My hearing aid kept beeping at the wrong time, blotting out portions of the conversation I was trying to hear.  Nothing I did became a permanent solution.  It got where I’d cringe every time the phone rang.
Today I had a session with my audiologist and she asked me if I had a speaker icon on my phone.  I said, “I don’t think so but I’ll check it out when I go home.”
Wouldn’t you know it?  I do have one.  Now all I have to do when someone calls me on the phone is to push the speaker icon on and listen within involving my hearing aid.  It works!
Isn’t it funny i.e. strange how we try all sorts of things to solve our problems  when sometimes the answer, untried is at our fingertips?
RETURN OF THE ARCTIC BLAST

We’re expecting near freezing temperatures here beginning tomorrow.  Doesn’t Mother Nature know it’s still fall?
DID YOU KNOW ?

WESLEY, GO HOME

John Wesley along with his brother Charles arrived at Tybee Island on February 5, 1736.  Charles went to Frederica was Secretary to Oglethorpe while John remained as Savannah’s minister.  John’s heart desire was to preach to the Indians but his superiors rejected his pleas.
John traveled to Frederica where he became an unwelcome parson.  William Horton told John (my paraphrase).  “Your sermons are calculated attempts to destroy certain leaders.  We aren’t going to listen to your tirades.  Nobody around here can figure out your religious affiliation.  You’ve been in one quarrel after another ever since you landed in Georgia.  Preach if you want to, John, but we aren’t coming to hear you!  
Please note this was long before John’s Aldersgate experience.
