Good news Mnl3:lt9l Jesus Christ informed the disciples that He wu going to take His departure from them, and declared that they could not follow Him. He wanted them to continue loving one another, thereby proving to all who observed their devotion that they were His disciples. Motivated by love for his Lord, Peter impulsively and hastily declared that regardless of the inability of others to follow Him, he was ready to accompany Him^nd to die in the process if that be necessary. Knowing full weft that Peter did not have the spiritual stamina to sub stantiate his avowal, Christ bluntly told him that he would deny Him three times before the cock crowed in the morning. John 11:25-27 On three different occasions during the trials of the Lord Jesus, Peter denied that he was a disciple of the Saviour, whereupon the cock crew in fulfillment of the prediction of Christ. Any person who gets out of communion with the Lord, out of fellowship with Christians, and consorts with evil companions, always does the wrong thing. John 21:15-11 After he had sinned grievously in denying his Lord, Peter had shed bitter tears over his sin, and had made full and frank confession of it, whereupon he had received forgiveness and had been restored to sweet fellowship with Christ, but he was in need of restoration to service also. Following the delightful breakfast which Christ had provided and prepared for the disciples, Christ again turned His attention to Peter and dealt with him. To Peter Christ put the pointed question: "Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?" By that question Christ was asking, "Do you love me deeply and devotedly?" Peter's response was equivalent to saying, "I have an affection for thee," or "I am a friend of yours." Then Christ repeated His question, using the stronger word for "love," and Peter replied using the weaker word for "love." The third time Christ asked the question He used Peter's word for "love." Crying out with anguish, Peter said: "Lord, thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love thee." He meant that he had a genuine affection for Christ.

George Buchanan, an English poet cautioned, "a fool and his money are soon parted". Few of us can drift with impulsive spending and excessive credit without drowning in unpaid bills and loss of assets. How to stay afloat, build and maintain financial security is the consumer's greatest concern today. This requires making the right choices when using money by: (1) getting control of self and his-her thinking (2) getting control of his-her dollars (3) Don't kid yourself into believing that you are helpless and that it is the outside factors that control your money. YOU make the choices for its use. The following practices enable you to control your dollars ! 1. Control starts with planning. Write out a plan for what you want to do with your money over a year or a month. Identify how much is to be saved, spent, and shared. Buy the most important items first and keep spending within income limits. Keep accurate records of your spending. Remember, it's the bits of spending here and there that can play havoc with your budget and put you out of control. 2. Curb costs by changing life style and reducing buying of the Note Of Appreciation I wish to express my appreciation to each of you for your prayers, phone calls, visits, flowers, cards and all other acts of kindness rendered me during my stay in the hospital and since my return nome. / May God bless each of you.

Schedule money for obligations and make a list for spending and set priorites. Use money for those things which will give the greatest value and satisfaction over the longterm. 3. Reduce prices paid for goods and services in the market pace: You can save from ten to twenty-five percent by using store brands instead of nationally advertised brands, com paring prices and qualities, using seasonal sales for pur chases, buying promotional sale items, paying cash instead of using credit, and avoid purchasing excessive amounts.
