Pastor's Weekly Message

Surprises.  God continues to offer surprises.  Maybe not all surprises are pleasing, but some certainly are.  And I continue to give thanks for the surprises that come from the hands of the Creator.

It was my day off and I was about to step outside to watch the rain out back.  But I didn't step out because there was a deer standing in the back yard, an adult, and then I saw another, and then a mere baby.  The young one was almost comical looking.  Some of the coloring of the adults could be seen in him (her?). But there was also longer, darker fur.  Looked like a turtle neck sweater, with a daring mohawk down the back.  (A rebel in the making.)

What were they doing?  Eating grass.  Moved from window to window to watch the excitement.  (Deer eating grass exciting?)  Watched until they wandered off.  Was just stepping outside to watch the rain and there was this sweet surprise.

Thanks Lord.  Trying to pay attention, and give thanks.

In Christ,
Pastor Randy

"Resplendent God, we long to be people who live and walk in the light of your glory, but sometimes we find ourselves shrouded in the darkness of fear, loneliness or despair.  In our anguish we cannot always find you.  Help us trust that you will lead us out of the shadows and back into your radiant presence.  Amen."
