Holiday in Cornwall

Here we are just outside Falmouth in Cornwall  and its raining hard and has been most of the time since we arrived on Saturday morning nice and early. We started just after 4am and had a great run down the approx. 200 miles with no hitches at all, that’s why we went early.
On Sunday we spent the Day in Newquay and attended Newquay Baptist Church and had a good time meeting up with old friends from Polpero unexpectedly. The service and sermons were good morning and evening. We had a roast dinner out and walked around Newquay in the dry. Sampling several cups of tea and coffee.
There was rowing race in the sea which Falmouth girls crew won, unfortunately we missed the mens race.
Even though the weather is less than favourable we still praise the Lord for His goodness to us.
“Rejoice evermore.  Pray without ceasing.  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.  Quench not the Spirit.  Despise not prophesyings.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. ” 1 Thess. 5:16-22
Here we have a few short pithy commands.
We must rejoice always in all circumstances. Do we ???
Prayer is the Christians vital breath and should be ours. Is it ???
We are to give thanks in everything but how often do we winge and moan and not fulfil the will of God in Christ Jesus  ??
We need to be filled with the Spirit, but by our actions and re-actions we often put a dampener on Him and His work in us. How do you fare in this area. ???
We are not to despise the preaching of the Word and the explanation of it. How much do we value it ???
The proving all things and holding fast that which is good goes with the above, we are not to be incredulous but test and try what we hear by the Word of God. Do we ???
Abstain from even the appearance of evil, this is much more than keeping ourselves from evil which we must do, it concerns how we are perceived by others, how we appear to others. Do we excel in this ???
