November Twenty-Six Two Thousand Twelve
Dear Pastor and Friends,
My father has often said, “Trouble is your best friend.” There seems to be a divine comfort that accompanies one’s troublesome times. Trouble also is designed to draw us closer to the Comforter, wrapping us in His loving arms and warming us with His love. In sickness or sorrow, sinking despair or sudden defeat, may our hearts soar in song to the One Who ever cares. In these tumultuous days, may we all be embraced by God’s abundant grace.
My itinerary gets pretty “skeletal” this time of year. I have just a brief weekend meeting and a big Sunday in December. Of course, Christmas and its incumbent festivities rule the days. From an earnest heart, Sandy and I thank you for your faithful gifts and support over the years. We pray that God’s hand will be firmly on your church and ministry.
The holidays, with all their bright promise and encouraging hours, are fast upon us and I trust God’s best will be enjoyed by you and yours.
Ever in His grasp,
