God of glory, Father of love, peace comes from you alone.  Send us peacemakers and witnesses to your kingdom, and fill our hearts with joy in your promises of salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

LESSON LEARNED… Did i???

We are called as believers in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to proclaim this awesome news.  Granted men have confused Christianity with traditions and services; however, it does not make them wrong in their way of worshiping God.

I have a story that I would like to share with you.

It was the week of the  Sunday After Pentecost.  The weather was awesome!  My story takes place right after that two weeks of rain.  That rain, we had in Central Pennsylvania seemed like it would never end. Thank God it did or I wouldn’t have this story for you!

It was beautiful outside… the sun was shining… it was about 73 Degrees… there was no wind… it was beautiful… so beautiful that I decided to eat my salad (from Karn’s) outside. I finished eating my salad and went to throw out the container.  At that very moment a bird flew and landed right next to me.  It was a smaller bird (sparrow… I think).  Anyway, to my surprise the bird was not startled by me and did not fly away for a while.  It danced around me like it was trying to tell me something.

After about a minute of watching the bird dance around me at arm’s length… I started talking to the bird

“Isn’t it beautiful out here Mr. bird???”

“Why are you around me???”

“Is everything alright Mr. bird???”

The sound of my voice must have scared the bird, because he flew away.  That was odd I thought to myself and I continued to drink my Ice Tea.  I finished that Ice Tea and turned around to throw away that container.  At that very moment, I heard a rustling noise in the bush behind me by the garbage can.  I threw the bottle away and turned around to see what was happening.  That is when I saw it.  I saw a big bird (probably a raven) come down from the sky and started attacking that little bird that was just dancing around me.

I got p+ssed.

I started running after that big bird to try to scare it away and save that little bird’s life.  Unfortunately, the big bird had the little bird in its beak… The more times I would run after that bird, the more times it would bite down on the little bird and fly away from me.  Finally, the big bird flew out of my sight with the little bird’s life in its mouth.

THE LESSON I LEARNED… I cannot save every little bird I cross paths with

HOWEVER… THAT KNOWLEDGE WILL NOT STOP ME FROM TRYING…

Thank you God for yesterday…

Thank you God for today…

Thank you God for tomorrow…
