I've missed you! I hope all of my readers/followers will return as I start up our blog once again. We've had a crazy few months but things are starting to get back to normal now- we're finding our 'new' normal! I've got lots and lots of pictures to share and I hope to download some for you today.
God has richly blessed us and has been faithful. We give Him all the glory and praise for His constant goodness and grace!
A little bit from The Word this morning:
Matthew 5: 2-12
God blesses those who realize their need for Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them. God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. God blesses those who are gentle and lowly, for the whole earth will belong to them. God blesses those who are hungry and thirsty for justice, for they will receive it in full. God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called children of God. God blesses those who are persecuted because they live for God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
God blesses you when you are mocked and persecuted and lied about because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted, too.
