Greetings in Christ!
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! Let us rejoice in the second day of summer, and let us be glad that the day dawned bright and clear! We have been blessed with a beautiful day to enjoy, so if your schedule allows, get out and take advantage of this glorious day!
If you are able to get out and about, let us invite you to consider finding a quiet spot and “sit for a spell” listening for the still, small voice of God. It seems to us that just about everyone could use a break from the busyness of our age, and from the relentless less-than-great news that confronts us on a daily basis. Whether you’re a fan of the beach, the forest, or of rolling farmland stretching out in front of you, stopping for a little while to let your mind wander or to focus on a particular subject can be both inspiring and energizing. As we learned during the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic (and understanding that it’s still with us in a somewhat different form), we will get through our current unsettledness if we are able to turn everything over to God and trust in his wisdom and guidance at every turn. That may not sound “active” enough for some, but the simple truth is that letting go of the reins for a time can be an opportunity to see the world through a different lens – a Divine lens. Remember that God is good, all the time; and all the time, God is good.
With our love in Christ,
Karen and Greg
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
Wishing you joy and peace in your day! Remember, God’s got this.
