Pastor's Weekly Message

"How clearly the sky reveals God's glory!  How plainly it shows what he has done!"  Psalm 19:1 (TEV)

Lying flat on my back, with thoughts of reading, shielded by the shadow of the eaves of the house.  Eventually I gave up the pretense and simply took in the show above me.  What stood out the most was the sky itself of course.  What a fantastic blue (sky blue?), no wonder it has its own color, thought their are other names that would fit as well (azure, brandeis, cornflower), a sure sign of the glory of God.  In truth there are no words that can really describe the beauty, so there needs to be time now and then just to take it in (and many times of the year do not provide such opportunities here).

An occasional bird would flit across my field of vision, finch, robin, hummingbird, and all the more highlight the depth of the canvas.  Plain, "plainly showing what he has done!"

Thanks again and again for the gifts Lord, and for the chance to take them in.  May I recall them when other moments would threaten to drive such beauty, and the Creator who provides them, away from my senses.

Again, in praise of the Creator,
Pastor Randy

"O lord, giver of life and source of freedom, we know that all we have received is from your hand.  Gracious and Loving Creator, you call us to be stewards of your abundance, the caretakers of all you have entrusted to us.  Help us to always use your gifts wisely and teach us to share them generously.  We pray with grateful hearts.  Amen."
