Thoughts to Ponder

October 20, 2019

 From darkness comes new life

Every day is a new creation,

Filled with the mundane, the wonderful, the expected and the unexpected,

Each day is specially crafted,

A beauty all of its own.


Every day there is mystery, wonder and ah,

Mingled with the breath of life,

With what our eyes see and our ears hear,

With what touches our hearts and fill the corners of our being. 


Just watch the caterpillar that walks upon the stick,

Spending it days chomping on the leaves,

When the time is right and enough days have passed-

It spins itself into darkness;


From the darkness new life emerges,

No longer a caterpillar - now a Butterfly, 

With wings painted by a master,

The Creator has quietly given another gift.


The same Creator who paints the butterflies,

Moves in the paths of our lives,

Invites us into dances of relationships of friendships,

Into the holiness of each others souls;


God has led us into the Garden of each other,

Woven us together,

A gift given, that will never be taken away,

Ah, for the mystery, wonder and love of God, I am so thankful!



Hear our prayers for those who are wandering or wounded or ill, especially Joann, Geoff, Donna, Tomasina, Lillian, Reba, Karl, Justin, Louise, June, Rossie, Lynn, Anna Mae, Bruce, Michael, Everleigh, Bob, Francis, Mary, Ann,  Louis, David, Walter, Brad, Robin, Pat, Betsy, Robert, Laura, Jennifer, Lynn, Bobbie, Mike & Dolores, and Our Homebound: Dot, Helen, Gail and Dawn.  The grace of God overflows for us.
God’s faith and love abound.

Our Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service will be held on Tuesday, November 26, at 6:30pm.  We will follow this service by time of fellowship and who knows maybe even some Apple and Pumpkin pie.
