“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And

surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

~Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)~

(These verses are often called “The Great Commission”, because they clearly express what God has planned for us to do.)

Yesterday morning, Pine Ridge United Methodist Church resumed their monthly breakfast benefits. It was good to be among out neighbors again and to fellowship with them over a wonderful breakfast. It was extra special to be able to give to help a young adult lady fight a health battle. The church has been doing this for many years. I’m thankful for their community outreach and love for many people and many needs. Their breakfast benefits are on the fourth Sunday of each month with breakfast being served at 8:00 A.M.

While there yesterday, I met lady who recently moved back into the area. As soon as she heard my name, she said “The Prayer Link”. I have been blessed with a new friend and a prayer partner I had never heard of before. That was one of two extra special blessings on my life yesterday.

During the Sunday School hour, I had again was able to sit around the table with ladies I love and appreciate so much. Christian fellowship and Bible study in small groups is a blessing. I highly recommend it to everyone.

The other blessing was an opportunity to speak with someone for the first time in eight years. Never give up praying. God works things out in His time and His way, not ours. I’m thanking God and praying for more opportunities.

David and I have been able to attend church again after being at home watching on the computer screen. I can tell you that no matter how wonderful the technology is that allowed us to still be a part of worship, there is nothing like being in church and seeing our church family in person!

Today, I’m full of thankfulness for blessings I didn’t see coming, but for which I am so thankful. I’m so appreciative of special days with opportunities to worship God, to assist in ministry, meet new friends, and renew relationships. Top that off with two great messages through Bro. Darryl. My blessings overflow!
