Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 2 John 1:3
It has been an overcast dreary day here in the PNW with rain off and on. It is days like this that I want to curl up with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and an afghan in front of the fireplace. It wouldn't have taken much for that to happen this morning. But today is the Lord's day, a day set aside for us to worship Him and spend time with our family of families.
Morning worship was awesome! Today was the first Sunday of the New Year and Pastor Steve started a new sermon series, "Speak Up - His Words, Your Mouth.", It is going to be a great series and I don't want to miss a single Sunday.
This morning was also "Next Step Dessert" Sunday, a time when we can hang out, welcome our visitors, visit with each other and be a "family." Our baby girl does an awesome job putting this together each month.
Once we arrived home from morning worship it was time to sit back and relax a while. My sweetie and our boy Ozzie took naps while I played with calendars and things. All in all it has been a very peaceful day here at our little piece of heaven.
Father God thank for blessing lives with our family of families. Father God thank you for Pastor Steve, the shepherd you have placed in our midst to lead us. Father God thank you for the grace, mercy and peace you give us each day. Amen
I wish you peace in the world in which you live and in the smallest corner of the heart where truth is kept.
