It’s that time of the year! Is your heart overflowing with thankfulness every day or are you holding your breath until the turkey arrives picture perfect on the laden table? Our National Day of Thanksgiving may be scheduled for next week, but before the count down begins and everything switches into full speed, and you’re madly dashing to complete and check off the to-do list, please remember to pause, take a deep breath, and give thanks for the countless blessings that have been bestowed upon you throughout the year, through God’s generous giving, or His gracious withholding. Oh, there is so much to give thanks for! These winter months are a perfect time to smell the bouquets of fragrant roses that were handed to you throughout the year. First, give thanks for your very breath of life, then take a deep breath and continue counting one by one. In today’s frantic society the season officially begins before Halloween. We all know this is nothing short of a nightmare, so if you have survived this far, then give thanks for the grace of getting through your nightmares!
We stay busy around here. This month, my interview with Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth airs on her radio program, Revive Our Hearts. The dates are November 27th, 28th, and 29th. Be sure to check your local Christian radio station for the time the program will air. It is called “Finding Hope In The Silence” and is a series you won’t want to miss.
The month also sees preparation for Operation Silent Night’s annual fundraising Christmas Cookie Platters. Last year over 400 dozen cookies were sold -this year the goal is for 450 dozen! Please check out Operation Silent Night’s Facebook page for more information and delicious pictures!
We will keep you posted on current news so please stay with us! Our hearts are overflowing with thanks and we consider you to be one of our blessings.
We seek to be a vessel, an outpouring of God’s love, to bring the good news to the afflicted, to bind up the broken hearted, to set the captive free, to comfort those who mourn, and to bring the oil of gladness and the mantle of praise to all that we meet and serve.
We undertake our mission through our outreach of ministering to the spirit, mind, and body, whether it be in renewal through silent retreat and prayer at WaterBrooks, through encouraging those with deafness and other physical challenges at Kennels of Levi, or through meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters among the homeless with Operation Silent Night.
We strive to fulfill our mission, not through our own might and power, but by resting on the firm guiding hand of faith in God’s providence, provisions and promises…for what He has started, He will so complete.
