Last Friday, when I wrote this little message to you it was another sun-filled day and I quoted Psalm 118: 24 – “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad.”
This morning – another blue sky and warming sun pouring themselves into all of us – I thought of a song from one of my top two music groups - U-2. They sing: "It’s a beautiful day, don’t let it get away, it’s a beautiful day.” Even if you can only step outside for 5 minutes, or look out the window if you can’t make it out of doors. Soak in this day the Lord has given. Let your heart sing – It’s a beautiful day!”
I’m looking forward to this Sunday. More wonderful music, more meaningful liturgy, and the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. The message will focus on Jesus’ declaration – “I am the bread of life….whoever comes to me will never be hungry.” Soak those words in as if they were beams from the shining sun. It will be a beautiful day.
(Worship with us, 10:00 a.m. this Sunday.) See you in church!
