We are so thankful for our church, and we had another wonderful Sunday. It seemed to me that so many people were in a good mood yesterday morning as soon as we got there. Kids were laughing, and the older ones were smiling. This was before we heard that great message about "Live Simply, Laugh Often, Love Deeply. You hear me talk a lot about our church, and I know there are many other people who have a wonderful church as well. Our church is nothing special, just a store front building, which is very adequate, but of course the people are what makes up any church. And we are surely thankful for those good people at Dogwood. Like Paul, I want to make it clear to who I am thankful.
"Giving thanks unto the Father, who hath made us meet [fit] to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son" (Col. 1:12,13).
"Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift!" (II Cor. 9:15).
"Thanks be unto God, who giveth us the victory!" (I Car. 15:57).
"Thanks be unto God, who always causeth us to triumph!" (II Cor. 2:14).
It is our prayer that all that read all who read this may be especially thankful for "the gift of God [which] is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord" (Rom. 6:23).
The Lord Jesus' blessings on you today, and always remember that you are loved!!!
