week end musings

our church had a retreat in central Pa from friday evening until sunday noon.

 this was our view from the back deck.
the leaves were really lovely, though not at their peak.

**********************

Encountering Jesus

In the realities of life,
and in the middle of hard things,
Jesus whispers...
'Sh-h-h, I'm here to deliver you.'

Giving up my alabaster box,
Am I willing to break the seal?
Give up my dreams?
To love genuinely is costly -
and to risk criticism and scorn...
to be misunderstood.

Worship
We are created to worship.
Worship is a connection to God.
To worship the Creator rather than the created.

This was our teaching in a nutshell -
a lot to think about and apply to my life!

...blessedness!
