Pastor’s Corner

 

The other night I attended Dalilah's class called Healthy Bingo.  I sat down by a family that had five children. I zeroed in on their four-year-old that was participating in the game.  The little guy couldn't read but he could match the pictures and what was amazing was how much he was enjoying the game.  The game had his full attention.  Dalilah would call out a new card and he would immediately see if he had a match and if he did he would have a big smile on his face and put a marker down.  Then, Dalilah, called out  a new card and he had his final match and he yelled out "Bingo!"  The little guy was grinning from ear to ear.  He went up and picked out his prize!  I was just amazed that a little four-year-old could give so much attention to a single event.  I wonder if we can do the same for the Lord.  Are we "focused" on the Lord?  Do we concentrate and pay attention to every "card" called? When the Lord give's us a new card are we happy and glad?  Can we give the Lord the same amount of attention as this little boy gave to Healthy Bingo?  

 

The Psalmist wrote:

" Blessed is the one

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,

And in His law, he meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper."  Psalm 1:1-3

 

May the Lord guide us to be attentive to His love and call upon our lives.

 

Blessings,

Pastor

    September was Deaf Awareness month!   The following website from the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing provides Deaf awareness information celebrating the Deaf culture.  

    There are links for each week of the month with informative information about Deaf people, culture, ASL and more.   The purpose of the information is to increase public awareness about deafness.  Very cool!
