Pastor's Weekly Message

"Make your face shine upon your servant,....."  Psalm 119:135
 
Saw lots of faces the other night, although many of them were covered actually.  It was trick or treat time of course, and we were out with our youngest grand babies, and some young friends.  Can I equate that time with the face of God shining?
 
Depends on the point of view I suppose.  It was apparent for me in several ways.  In the kids excited smiles sure.  But also in Avery taking my hand as we walked along.  Or in Daphne's comical burgeoning understanding of what exactly was going on and how she was intent on being a part of it.  Or in seeing that beautiful quarter moon watching over us in the crisp, clear night air.  It all left me with a warm grin.  God's face shining.  Thanks for the gifts Lord.
 
Peace and blessings,
Pastor Randy
 
"O God, the giver of life and of every good gift, you have poured out your grace and blessings upon us.  Your generosity is lavish, and your love unconditional, your joy overflowing.  Help us to appreciate your gifts anew and to know that in you we we will find rest and hope.  In Christ, Amen.
