Our Refreshment center…

Standard

Jesus Christ is the refreshment center of summer.

He is preeminent in all things

~Colossians 1:18

And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

HIS Word this summer…

Standard

If you have the Spirit without the Word,

you blow up.

If you have the Word without the Spirit,

you dry up.

If you have both the Word and the Spirit,

you grow up.
-Don Lyon

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

~MATTHEW 24:35

Priceless Gifts!!

Standard

This brings you a million

good wishes and more

For the things you cannot buy

in a store;

Faith to sustain you

in times of trial,

A joy-filled heart

and a happy smile,

Contentment, inner peace,

and love –

All priceless gifts from God above!

~Helen Steiner Rice~

~Summer.. 4th of July… Freedom…

Standard

Galatians 5:13

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.

~Dwight D. Eisenhower

Independence Day Prayer

May the glory of Independence Day
Remain in mind in heart
May we cherish our hard-won freedom
That it never falls apart.

Because those who walked before us
Believed in freedom’s cause so much
We can carry forth a torch
Of honor and ‘In God We Trust’.

That first Independence Day
Now more than two centuries past
Must live forever in our thoughts
Never forgotten – never a lapse.

It is a precious land we hold
In safekeeping for our children
That they, as we, may enjoy
Lives bountiful, worth living.

May God’s blessings ever
Ring out over all our land
A toast of praise we raise today
Americans – join hand in hand!

By Susan Helen Kramer
