Thankful Thursday 2-13-2020

Thankful Thursday sits squarely on the eve of Valentine’s Day. A day where we now share words of kindness, appreciation, and love from one person to another. It is good to share these warm thoughts and expressions with loved ones.

Have you paused to know and appreciate warm thoughts and expressions of love for yourself? I ask this question because a friend of mine, a fifth grade teacher, tried an exercise with her class. As they worked on completing it, she heard comments such as: “This is hard!”

Let’s try the exercise here (especially since we are to be working on our personal mission statement with the added so that!) Consider this thought: what do you bring to the world? Now, complete these sentences: “I am good at…”, “People like me because…”, and “I contribute meaningfully by…”

As you answer these questions, it may help you work towards building the personal mission statement for your life. You can do this (and yes, it may be hard, but you’ve got it!) Dig in, enjoy the self exploration, and write down your response. It’s a great valentine to give to yourself (& the world!)

Blessings to you!

Thankful Thursday 2-6-2020

Thankful Thursday offers the gift of lifting our eyes to meet the eyes of those around us. As I observe the world around me and even all the people in my own home (including me), it is with more and more frequency faces are looking at a screen versus another the face of another human with which they interact. It has been said that the eyes are the windows to our souls.

If our eyes are the windows to our souls, what are you allowing your eyes to see; thus your soul to see? Are you blessing it by drinking deeply from the Word of God? Do you gift it with meeting the eyes of another treasured soul from God?

When on your screens and in real life, curate the content you allow your eyes to see to the best of your ability. You are valuable and worthy of seeing the beauty and goodness God has placed in this world. I encourage you to put the screen down more frequently and pick up the eyes of a loved one more.

That for which you are looking is what you will find. Here is a bit of inspiration from Psalm 121:

 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come fromMy help comefrom the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; …

Whether on a screen or face to face, seek wisely my friends!

Blessings to you!

Thankful Thursday 1-30-2020

Thankful Thursday awaits the production of my life mission statement. Earlier in our sermon series, Pastor Doug challenged us to write down our life mission statement. The following week, he added to the challenge: tweak your mission with the statement so that…

Our response to this amendment answers the heart behind our mission. The heart is the driving factor in the chosen action. When our response why is strong enough, we will do what others won’t. When we do what others won’t, we become able to do what others can not.

This growth inspires and challenges those around us. Keeping our eyes on God pulls us closer in relationship with Him. It grows us into whom we are called to be. As we change, we always have one we can depend on: God.

God is good. He is … always here, Our Rock and Our Shepherd. Keep coming to Him for direction for He is leading. We are a part of community and in turn, the harvest. How you will be a part of the fruitful harvest?

I’m grateful each of us has room to grow. And I’m cheering you (and myself) on to defining your life mission statement so that…

Blessings to you!
