Pastor's Weekly Message

"O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever."  Psalm 136:1
 
Thanks all over the place.  Standing outside again of course, in the darkness, after a good rain.  The creek behind the house was no longer dormant.  The sound of the rolling water is such excellent music, and a sweet gift.  Giving thanks.
 
Sitting inside and hearing the wind howl and the rains beat down.  What a blessing to have this safe place, a refuge.  And I would far too easily take it for granted.  Giving thanks.
 
As for those times taken for granted, or even when the grandest gifts are looked past foolishly, or seem not to offer the comfort sought.  Then strengthened by the ultimate gift of a "steadfast love that endures forever".  Giving thanks.  All over the place.
 
Peace and blessings,
Pastor Randy
