Dawg Daze of Summer

Well, here we are…. in the post 4th of July days. What have we to look forward to now? Heat, thirst, sun burns, kids needing to soak in some form of water. The Church is hot, the class rooms stuffy. Boy, can’t wait for fall! Sound familiar?
Seems we are never satisfied or happy with our situation. What had great weather for the 4th; an awesome outreach during the parade and a wonderful time with friends and family at the rodeo. Now we get to look forward to WHAT GOD CAN DO! He will raise our crops. We will provide that cooling water for whining kids…(and adults), and we GET to participate in VBS! That is another opportunity to reach out for Christ.
We always have something to look forward to. Even if we are not happy with our current situation, Jesus has gone on ahead of us “to prepare a place for us in His Father’s house”. Amen! No matter where I find myself, He has already made the provision for me to be with Him in GLORY! As a prisoner of this earth I already know I will paroled into heaven with the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
Praise Him and as Psalms100 says, “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth”. We have joy because we have a future and something glorious to look forward to. Eternity with He whom first loved us! Amen!
Thank you to God, His family and this community of Sedro-Woolley for an AWESOME 4th of July week….
