Pastor's Thoughts (1 May)

          Time passes so fast. We are to the end of a school year
and beginning of summer. There is Memorial Day and
Mother’s Day and I celebrate another birthday. As I
get older time seems to be hurrying along.


Jesus never seemed to be in a hurry. He said he did what the
Father instructed him to do. He said He and the Father were
one. He took time to pray. Jack has a saying, “There’s so much
to do and so little time to do it”.


I am trying, as I get older, to just live for today. One thing I
know for sure, I can’t go back, and I don’t know what will
happen tomorrow. And if I hurry today, I might miss something
God wants me to notice or something he wants me to do.
Maybe getting older does that to a person. Reflection is a good
thing.


As you make plans for the summer think of how you can make
time to reflect on the blessings in your life. Slow down and
smell the roses. As you celebrate Mother’s Day, whether in
remembering your mother or being with your mom, reflect on
the blessings of having a mom and/or being a mom.


Philippians 4:13 is “I can do all things through Christ who
strengthens me.” This has helped me throughout my life. I will
trust this Scripture to help me to slow down and not hurry.


Blessings,
Pastor Stephanie
