To Our Community . . .

I had a very rare and great experience this past week.  I got to sit in on a conversation with an eleven year old and someone in their late eighties.  The topic was World War II.  As I sat and listened to them discuss the various happenings of the war and some of the circumstances, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by such of feeling of gratitude for all those who serve and have served in the armed forces that have defended us and protected us and have made it possible for this 5th grader as well as all citizens of the United States to feel safe and confident in our homes and churches.  For myself, and I think I’m not alone in this, I often take our freedoms and safety for granted.  We do not have to look very far nor listen very intently to know that it is not this way in other parts of the world. So today, with heart-felt gratitude I say thank you to Clarence Golden as well as all the others who served and are serving in the military to keep peace within our borders and in other parts of the world.  Please take time to remember our military in your prayers and say thank you to as many as you can.  Much love.


Always praying for you,

    Revelation 11:15-19

    The Seventh Trumpet

    15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

    “The kingdom of the world has become

       the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,

       and he will reign for ever and ever.”

    16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God,17 saying:

    “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,

       the One who is and who was,

    because you have taken your great power

       and have begun to reign.

    18 The nations were angry,

       and your wrath has come.

    The time has come for judging the dead,

       and for rewarding your servants the prophets

    and your people who revere your name,

       both great and small—

    and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”

    19 Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a severe hails.
