It is so nice to have a beautiful time of the year when we can see God’s marvelous handiwork. It is also nice to have a Sabbath worship time when we get to meet with each other and see God’s handiwork with us – all part of His creation. We humans are the final act of Creation’s great drama just prior to God setting aside a day of worship – the Sabbath. I trust that for this month ahead you will take the time to be a part of Sabbath worship.

David wrote:

“Those who have experienced

the redemption of God

and know what it means

to be reconciled to Him

ought to dedicate their lives to serving Him

and their voices to proclaiming

to the world His loving grace.”

Psalm 107 (Psalms/Now)

 

There are so many things that I would like to say to you as our church family. I want to express my “thanks” to all of you as you walked with us through this “valley.” Your prayers and thoughts have been so timely and comforting. We have truly experienced God’s presence through each of you. Thank you so much!!

I would also like to say that I am once again (but in a totally different way) amazed at the gift of Life. God is so wonderful in His gifting – to allow us this miracle of birth! But Oh! How fragile Life Is!! Don’t take it for granted! Breathe each breath of air as it truly is - a gift from God. Our lives are defined by moments – especially the ones we never see coming. Watching God at work - even in the midst of tragedy – is a blessing to be sure.

Please take the time out of your busy days and weeks to stay close to Jesus. Your personal friendship with Him through Bible Study, Prayer and Time sharing with others, will keep you firmly planted when circumstances try to rock your world.

Lastly, take some time to volunteer at a Hospital near you. Hang out with a family that is grieving and just be there for them. See the ugly side of the Devil’s work and how God is usually present in those hospital rooms and waiting areas. I cannot stress enough what it meant to all our family to have caring volunteers and visitors who were strangers to us, coming over to where we were sitting - putting their arms around us . . . and even praying with us. It is an experience I never thought would mean so much.

Your pastor and friend
