"Walking Through A Closed Door"
Message summary: When things seem out of our control we can easily give way to panic and fear.

Daily prayer: Jesus, I thank You for the peace You give us. We are besieged by the troubles of this world and can easily be overwhelmed by the daily cares of life. Yet we take heart and have enduring hope because You have overcome this world and You enable us to overcome this world as well.

Thank You for all You do on our behalf. Amen.
We walked through Farmstead Flowers, a greenhouse near Lititz, PA where, amongst the plants and flowers for sale, many small inspirational signs were posted.
Today's Suggested Music and Supplemental Resources
"Oh, No, You Never Let Go" Video Tuesday morning we visited Karen, who attends a church in Ono, PA. She especially likes this song!
Last night Rick Masciantonio, a long-time friend who attended the church we served in New England during the nineties, stopped by for a visit. Rick is now pastoring the Nauset Baptist Church on Cape Cod and is a stalwart defender of the faith. The photo show Rick along with his wife Liz. He is down this way to attend the Banner Of Truth conference.
