|"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105|
Stained glass windows have been around a very long time. I've seen them in churches since I was young. Bible characters and scripture are always featured on them. Never have I seen a bad one. Ones in England are beautiful as well. These windows add something special to church. Last Sat. my daughter and I attended a memorial service for my co-worker's mom in the older style church,
Quite the setting for the service. After the lunch reception was over, I came back up to the sanctuary and took photos. Spent a few quiet moments in thought as Pat's big picture was still up and the flowers were smelling so sweet. Sweet, good memories lingered in my mind of conversations with her on the phone, in person, prayers said for her health. She is a cancer survivor! Now in heaven...survived the world! Hallelujah! Thankful for the promise of heaven all because Jesus loved us so much that He came to die for our sins and set us free!
|"He saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon Him." Matthew 3:16|
As believers in Christ, we are to do His work, in the church and in the world. We grow in knowledge of Him and teach others about him, as we live each day. Phil and I commit to teaching children's church ever so many months a year. It's been a blessed process over the years. I've seen myself grow up in ways that I thought I never would. Be stronger in my faith just by studying more in depth for our lessons. Getting the real background of the stories, not just reading scripture. Working through the stresses of getting all the lesson prepared and not nagging at one another. I realized who was causing it and put a stop to the wiles of the devil. Trying to make us against each other instead of together. A commitment to encourage ourselves as we step forth and teach the children in unity. Sometimes the curriculum is the problem and we tweak it. We enjoy the children and encourage them in their walk in the Lord. We've seen young ones grow up and now this year we've seen 4 get married, just recently, to Godly spouses! It's the beauty of the Christian walk, like the sunshine shining through the stained glass windows. Life is brighter and better with the Lord! Have a blessed week, my friends!!
