Pastor's Weekly Message

"One thing I asked of the Lord, ... to behold the beauty of the Lord,....." Psalm 27:4

Alright, so maybe I asked for more than that, but the beauty part has certainly been fulfilled over and over again.  Seeing the roses blossom out front, and now some lilies as well.  Watching the finches, and other birds, fuss and fight around the feeders.  Seeing a shadow pass in front of the window early Tuesday morning, pulling back the curtains to see a young deer standing in our front yard.  Listening to the SOV choir on Sunday evening (and so much other excellent music). Watching little Naomi dance on Sunday morning, and hearing her "amen" as well.  Seeing baby Valorie resting so comfortably in Patrick's arms, and his smile as he gazes down at her.

The "beauty of the Lord", and I could go on and on.  In the midst of my worries, real and imagined, small ones and world wide ones, there is a need to behold the beauty around me.  Is that true for you as well?  Make a list of the beauty.  Take a moment.  May it soften the harshness that sometimes seems to dominate this world.

Always and forever, in praise of the Creator,
Pastor Randy

"O God, we trust in your power to create, to sustain, to enable.  But we could not trust you if we did not know that you are always near.  Be with us Lord, enable us to bring all that we are to you, so that we might experience your touch upon all aspects of our life.  Amen."
