Greetings my friends. It is Sunday December 05TH 2021, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I’ve returned home from yet another road-trip vacation, and this was a long one – one of the longest of my life. It started on Thursday November 11TH, and it ended on Sunday November 28TH – a total of 18 days. I’m blogging my road-trip adventures and experiences over the course of 7 Thursdays through December and into January. Part 1 of my 7-part series was posted this past #TravelThursday.
I missed 3 Sundays in a row with my church family here at home. I did not attend a church service during my road-trip even though it was in my plans to do so. I missed the pre-service fellowship. I missed singing about our God up on stage. I missed learning more about our God from our Pastor. I missed the post-service fellowship Lunch at a local restaurant. I missed it all – 3 times over. I’m excited about returning later this morning !
This past Wednesday December 01ST in the afternoon a bunch of us gathered at our church building to put up all of our Christmas decorations within our sanctuary. It all looks very festive now. We did a great job, but the important part of it all was the fellowship that got it done. God’s fellowship. God’s love among His children.
It’s the first Sunday of a brand new month, so we’ll observe and celebrate Communion this morning.
I may incorporate this Scripture into my Communion this morning:
Then Jesus said – “Come to Me – all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you – because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NLT)
If you wish to learn more about the God I know then stay tuned to #SundayScripture. Tomorrow it’s #Top10Monday, as I present my personal Top 10 hits this week that honor our God Almighty on the radio.
Thank you for reading my blog for this day, and may:
The LORD bless you, and keep you.
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
