MESSAGE FROM CHERYL
....And suddenly, it is August. Days are noticeably getting a bit shorter. Children are getting ready to return to school. Parents thoughts are turned to preparing for this event. There are mixed feelings So too, is life. "already" ...A word that we find we use more frequently as we age. How can this be? How can the kids be that old? Life does slip by quickly. It is so important to make sure we are prepared, for none of us know when the end of our earthly life will be It is so easy to focus on the here and now, and ignore the one fact that we absolutely know with certainty, each of us will die. Life as we know will end and our bodies will fail and that which is really us, our spirits will remain. What will that be like? None of us really knows, but scripture assures us we cannot even begin to imagine what wonders God has prepared for we who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)Try as we may, it is impossible for us to imagine! Do we love Him? Our actions give evidence Jesus said, "if you love me, you will keep my commandments" John 14:15 What are His commandments? First of all, we should love the Lord with all our hearts, with all our souls and with all our minds. The 2nd, we should love our neighbors as our self. He has told us these are the greatest of ALL the commandments. At First Presbyterian, love abounds. Love for God, love for each other. Let us seek the leading of the Holy Spirit for ways we can share that love with our neighbors Your ideas are important; share them! Let's work together to build our congregation but most importantly to build the Kingdom of God upon this earth. As we work with His leading we are pleasing God, Showing our deep love for Jesus. The results are in His hands, but the work is ours to do! Let us do this with passion and with joy!
