Farewell 2013

2013 has indeed been a great year. I prayed in the beginning that I would spend time with my family and I did in all aspects of the word. I've learned so much about myself and I am indeed growing. Thank you 2013.

2014 I look forward to meeting you with love, cheer and lots of laughs. Taking life one day at a time.

{Church Notes} Growth

In the spirit of the holidays Pastor Carl has been teaching/preaching a series of "'Tis the season". In continuation of this series, Robert Ferguson preached a sermon 'Tis the season To Grow. This message couldn't have come at a better time in my life. A time where my relationship with my boyfriend has ended. A time where my relationship with Christ is being mended. A time where I have to make decisions in my life concerning me. A time where I need to just grow up. Below are my church notes from yesterdays sermon. Hope this blesses you as much it has me.

Preacher: Robert Ferguson
Sermon Title: 'Tis the Season: To Grow

If you have to be persuaded to move, maybe you are not alive
Living things move; Living things reproduce, the bear fruit
If you have to be persuaded to tell your story maybe you have forgotten that you have been forgiven

All living things grow, we are called to grow
"Tis the season to grow: God has called you to grow"
Luke 7, Mark 4:8 Seeds in good soil grow
Psalm 92:19
What growth looks like
Ephesians 4:15-17
God is the grower
-Growth is Godly
-Growth is effortless

Connected with Christ you just naturally do things like Christ
-Growth is daily
Acts 6:5
-Growth is necessary
Luke 13

3 seeds that do not bear fruit:
1. Fall on the Path-has no understanding, 
2. fall on the rocks-has no roots,
3. falls on thorns - had no focus

1. Know what you have
2. Receive what we can - psalm 92
3. Do what we must

Do you have a real, personable, current relationship with Jesus?

A Celebration: Madiba

Not everyone can live a life such as his. 
Yet we can celebrate among each other
the life that he has lived for us
for equality
for justice
for our children
and children's children
To Madiba, we celebrate you.
