I promise not to update every stinking day…
But I just wanted to tell you how beautiful and sweet and restorative last night was. It was the kick-off to our 40 Nights of Prayer and Worship leading up to Heaven Fest. The sound system was set up on the veranda outside the cafe at Northern Hills on the west side of the building. There was a gentle breeze and a brilliant sun. Swans were swimming to beat the band in the pond and we got to worship God through a beautiful sunset, reflected on the water. Double blessing!
Some people prayed out loud, some silently. The three young children there with their parents frolicked joyfully in the beautiful summer, night air. It was a disconnect from TV, work, cell phones, computers, etc., etc. And though we went to pray for Heaven Fest, we found God waiting to kiss us with rest and repair. And He did paint THE most beautiful sunset for us, as the crickets worshiped along and the birds fluttered by.
So-come when you can. Just sit. Just soak. Bring the kids.
NOTE: My kiddos are leading worship tonight (Dave and Tara and Rocky and Tris and Steph and Stormie and Dan and Marianna). Mary Jean and I will tomorrow night. It isn’t another church service. It isn’t another Christian duty. It isn’t another have to. But if you feel like “getting away” (unplug, already!), just come. Just come…
I promise I am not “shoulding” on you!…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: To BE rather than to DO, that is the ticket!
