Pastor's Letter

I have discovered another favorite song. It is by Tim Timmons and called Everywhere I Go. As I am sitting here in the midst of a sea of boxes surrounded by those last minute things to pack, newspapers, and stuff I don't even remember buying or bringing into the house or office this song keeps running through my head. I can choose to be scared. I can choose to be angry. I can choose to be anything but trusting God. I won't. I choose to trust God, everywhere I go. And, the result is - I have peace. O, I admit there was a moment when I panicked, but it was only a moment and in the next I ran to my Heavenly Father and found that He was near - I didn't need to be anxious.
 
"There's a city that calls me by name. There's a city that calls me by name. Yes as I run this race I am cheered by the saints. There's a city that calls me by name. There's a future that runs through my veins. There's a future that runs through my veins.  And there's nothin on earth that could stand in the way cause there's a a future that runs through my veins.

Ev'rywhere I go on this road high and low where I go I go with you. So I won't be afraid this my home come what may. Where I go I go with you. Where I go I go with you."
 
I hope you will look this song up on youtube (there is a video that you can dance to). Once you hear it you will understand why you might see be dancing down the road (and it might explain why I am missing my turns, but we won't go there).
 
 
May your JOY be outrageous,
