Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
We got 3 tons of food in at the Lost Sheep warehouse Saturday! So, this morning we got up and went over to help bag it to pass out on the food truck.
Afterwards, we worked the food truck. Then we went to the store, over to Jason's to pray (something we have been doing every day for the past 2 weeks...his request) and then we came home to fix supper.
Tommy is starting a weekly Bible study broadcast tonight. It's called, Mondays and Mark He is in the other room preparing for it. We are doing another broadcast 3 nights a week throughout June about happy things. May was lonely things. The second one is called "The Oaks Family Merry Month of June Off The Road Medicine Show."

Somewhere today, in all of the activity, John boy remarked, "I don't understand boredom." I totally agreed with him. The Lord has placed us in such a place right now, that we don't have to look far to find something to do. One of our family's favorite statements is "there is no need to be bored.
The New International Bible says in Colossians 3:23....Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
I think there is a difference in working for a human and in working for God. I also believe that all work can be work for the Lord if you keep your mind on Him while doing whatever task you have before you.
I have not been bored during all of the craziness going on right now. My prayer for you is to look around you and find
SOMETHING TO DO
WITH ALL YOUR HEART
AS FOR THE LORD
