Join us on this wonderful 04-15 November Pilgrimage!

We have a brochure for our November 2007 Pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
Imagine walking where Jesus walked, following the route of the real Stations
of the Cross, visiting the Tomb of Christ and his birthplace as well,
renewing Baptismal Promises at the Jordan River, renewing Marriage vows or
praying for a deceased spouse at Cana in Galilee.  

We'll stay at only two Hotels this time, the Grand Court in Jerusalem (near
the old City) and the Gai Beach Spa Hotel in Tiberias, right on the Sea of
Galilee.  It's beautiful! As always full breakfast and dinner is included,
along with luggage transfer, admissions, transfers and much more.  Gary says
their Holy Land Guides are the best!

Visit my Web Site for complete details.  You can sign up any time now, and
we expect this one to fill up quickly. Gary says the Holy Land has been
their most popular destination!  Just follow the link from:  www.frpat.com

"If God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow
is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you--you of little
faith!  And do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to
drink, and do not keep worrying.  For it is the nations of the world that
strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them.
Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as
well."  ~Luke 12:28-31

I know that God cannot teach anyone who is trusting in a "crutch."  I can
throw away the worldly things I have come to depend upon and walk in God's
power and spirit.  God's power can so invigorate me that I can indeed walk
on to victory.  There is never any limit go God's power. I can go step by
step, one day at a time.  God's will can be revealed to me as I go forward.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may have more and more dependence on God.  I pray that I may
throw away the "crutches" I sometimes rely upon and let God's power take
their place.
