I am really missing all of you!  I am truly thankful for today’s technology that allows us to meet for worship on Wednesdays and Sundays and that we are able to hear God’s Word through Bro Steve’s incredible messages. So thankful that Dinah, Marsha and I have been able to prepare and play instrumental praise and worship during this difficult season.  Very thankful for so many of you who have helped with special music.  I look forward to the time when the choir and bells and other groups meet and rehearse and then sing and ring to the glory of God in corporate worship.  I would have never dreamed something like this virus would be so paralyzing to our world.  I’m thankful that we can remember the words of Jesus:  “In me you may have peace, in this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

God’s Word and even many of our great hymns and choruses come to mind every day, and we need to depend on those encouraging words.  Like the chorus says “Through it all, I’ve learned to depend upon God’s Word!” 

We serve a big God, a great God, a mighty God that we can always depend on.  His promises are true!  When Jesus is my portion, My constant Friend is He: “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”
