Michael in his sermon Sunday spoke of difficulties we all face. He closed by saying, "We are not exempt from difficulties and sorrow, but the Lord still remains ever near to us. We know how God has been near us in times of our own problems, whatever they may have been. Some gesture of kindness or understanding by even a complete stranger may have been what helped us to remember that. May we be thankful to God for that closeness, that loving presence, and we may become, more and more, the means whereby others may experience God's presence in times of trouble." Thanks, Michael.
Have a blessed week,
Carpe Every Diem,
Rufus and Sandy
