The Way of the Glunt

The fall season has been very busy with both of my teenagers in marching band here in Springfield.  One more football game and one more competition, and it’s in the bag!  Ahh, rest!  Can’t wait for it!

I’ve changed my trip to Pennsylvania to November to help my sisters go through things my parents left behind.  It will be a long trip, since I’m driving alone, but I am excited to see them again after three and a half years.  Thank God for the internet and telephone!

We had a great luncheon at the church this past Sunday, with chili provided by Pat McKinley and Ann Blackwell, vegetable soup by DeDe Murray, and other items brought by the rest of the ladies.  If you didn’t come, we missed you, and you missed a great lunch!

We also began a new study in Sunday school.  We are learning about God’s grace.  If you don’t have a church home, why not consider joining us and learning about God’s grace and experiencing that grace with us?  Sunday school begins at 10 a.m. and worship at 11 a.m.

Each week you get to hear from me, so this week I wanted to share a little bit from my husband Don, who is a pastor in Springfield at Gibson Chapel Presbyterian Church.  For some years a list called “The Glunt Family Rules” hung on our refrigerator, offering scriptural wisdom in a family setting for our kids.  Just recently, however, Don put up a new list, one that I kind of like.  I think you will enjoy it, too.  In fact, you might want to hang it up for your family!


1.  The hand of God is upon you . . . GOD + YOU = FOREVER.

2.  God has given you certain talents . . . DISCOVER THEM.

3.  Work is a four-letter word . . . EMBRACE IT.

4.  It matters because you are doing it . . . SEMPER FI.

5.  Character is more important than reputation . . . BE REAL.

6.  When in doubt, Ask . . . KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

7.  Don’t fear making mistakes . . . LEARN FROM THEM.

 8.  Respect is earned not given . . . ACT ACCORDINGLY.

 9.  Kindness is a sign of Strength . . . OTHERS MATTER.

 10.  You are Dumb but Lucky . . . DON’T ABUSE IT.

 Brought to you by the “If You Don’t Get It By 17 You Never Will” Society.

Here’s hoping you find wisdom to be your companion, along with a deep-seated sense of God’s grace and peace as you encounter this week.  May God bless you richly.
