I woke up this morning thinking about what you and the church have given me, and I felt the need to share it with you:

I look forward, with joy, to Sundays.

I look forward, with anticipation, to opening my Bible.

I look forward, with interest, to bible study with friends and family.

I appreciate everything the Lord has given me and have found myself thanking Him constantly.  I spend my days with hymns running through my head.  I go to sleep at night counting my blessings, and falling asleep with the list unfinished.  I find myself praying during the day without having to prompt myself to do so.

So, if you are feeling a little “down” today, or at any other time, remember that you have opened up the world to me, and I am eternally grateful for that.  I have spent 61 years going to different churches.  This is the FIRST time in that 61 years, that I feel like I have found a home.  Thank you.
