“God even knows how many hairs are on your head.” Matthew 10:30
Easter is the time for us to remember what Jesus Christ did for us when He went to the cross, died, and then rose from the grave. He paid our price on the cross because He loves us. He loves us so much that He was willing to do that which we cannot do for ourselves. One simple explanation as to why the Son of God would leave the perfect place called Heaven and come down to this sin-filled world is His love for us. He has numbered the hairs on your head. If God has a refrigerator in heaven your picture is on it. If He carries a wallet, your photo would be in it. He gives us beautiful sunrises to see and sunsets to enjoy. Every spring He brings His beautiful flowers to remind us that there is always an opportunity to start over again and the newness that comes from trusting in Him. Let's face it, God is crazy about you. Of all the places in the universe that God could choose to live, He has chosen to live in your heart. Why not choose to love him?
As I write this article my time of vacation is coming to an end. I am at my last spring training baseball game. Tomorrow I will board a plane and head back to St. Louis. I have missed the wonderful Fee Fee church family. I have missed your smiles, your love, and your laughter. Mary Louise and I are so blessed to be able to pastor such a wonderful church.
Please pray for our church as we prepare for Easter that we would reach out to those around us and invite them to come in.
Big thanks to Andrew for a very successful DNow. As always, thank you to the Fee Fee family for providing food and lodging for the kids and for those who give to the budget. Without your giving we could not support this wonderful ministry. God continues to bless us in many ways.
We continue to look for a church hostess. This is a part-time job but a very important one. The hostess is in charge of all the meals at our church. If you are interested in this position, please come by the office to pick up an application. If you are not interested in it, please pray that God will send us someone to fill this job adequately and bless our church family.
We will have an all-church reception for Kim Maschmdit on the night of March 25. I know that this is a Wednesday night but we will incorporate it with her last Wednesday night supper. Kim has done a wonderful job over the past many years. Pray for her as she and Eugene begin a new adventure in Cape Girardeau.
God continues to bless us in many ways. Come join the fun and remember that God loves you.
See You in Church,
