A Sobering Moment

Early this week we all waited to get off the plane and for good reason: a fallen soldier's body was being received by his comrades. It was very sobering. The plane was silent, but for one little 5 year old boy who wondered why he had to wait to get off.  His mother said, "There is a man who gave his life for you son, and we're waiting for him to get off first." 

Let us never forget. And keep praying!

If God did that, then surely he can...

Today I overheard one of our pastors say this as he was praying for someone…

"If God did that, then surely he can ________."  Fill in the blank for your situation!

Reminds us of 1 Chronicles 16:12.

A New Year's Prayer

A New Year's Prayer



May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you desirous to help.
God's love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
