Jeremiah 31:31-34 Ladies wore corsets, which would lace up in the front. A proper and dignified woman, as in "straight-laced," wore a tightly tied lace.
Jeremiah said that the Lord declared, "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts." If we have the Word of the Lord in our thoughts and guiding our hearts, then we will truly act in a straightforward and righteous manner. We will be "straight-laced" in the sense of standing tall and proper for the Lord, both in word and deed. Ron L.

Hello dear children,
I am so glad to see you this morning. Know why? It's a time for worship. And more than that, I get to tell you good news. The good news from John's gospel today, is about a very special friend who is here with us today.
But first, how many of you have friends? (children respond)
Jenny was having fun. Her friend Martha had brought a graphical calculator into school. Martha had borrowed the calculator from her older brother, who used it for his advanced maths. He'd been off school for a week, so Martha had figured he wouldn't need his calculator for a while. She and Jenny had soon discovered a great bowling game hidden in the depths of the calculator, and Jenny, to her excitement had just reached level three.
