Just a quick note to say "sorry" for not having blogged in a while...It's been BUSY! I flew home to PA for less than 48 hours for my Grandma's Memorial Service and time with family...my in-laws are coming tomorrow and so we've been getting the Guest Room ready...and I've been fighting sickness (but am feeling better today), so, that's about it. Love to you all and a little Henri Nouwen that blessed me as we enter this season of changing and uncertain times, and this special season of thankfulness and celebration of our Saviour's birth:
The Church is called to announce the Good News of Jesus to all people and all nations. Besides the many works of mercy by which the Church must make Jesus' love visible, it must also joyfully announce the great mystery of God's salvation through the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The story of Jesus is to be proclaimed and celebrated. Some will hear and rejoice, some will remain indifferent, some will become hostile. The story of Jesus will not always be accepted, but it must be told.
We who know the story and try to live it out, have the joyful task of telling it to others. When our words rise from hearts full of love and gratitude, they will bear fruit, whether we can see this or not.
May you bear much fruit in this season and your hearts be centered on He who is our life!
