Just Because

Today, as we approach the Day of Thanksgiving, I rejoice to have this platform to express some deep gratitude.

My parents divorced when i was two years old. In that era, divorce was a rare thing, so my friends were few. (People avoided children from “broken homes.”) Raised as an only child by a working mom, my greatest memories center around summer time spent with my cousins in Bellingham because I was not alone then.

Later, God brought Steve Lyman into my life and three wonderful children!

Enter next, the Apostolic Revelation and the Bride of Christ!

Long years of personal isolation and loneliness suddenly were replaced with a room full of love!

By this will others know that we are HIS, by our fervent LOVE one for another!

Fervent it is, too!

Often the praise I share with each of those that love our Lord is a praise of thanksgiving just for the fellowship of God’s precious people!

Thank you all for loving each other! The grief seems lighter and the joy greater just to see your light-filled faces! God is so faithful to give us just exactly the blessings we NEED!

The Love of God is shed ABROAD in our hearts by the Holy Ghost! Amazing, huh? 🙂 Kind of makes me want to pray some more.

Sent with deepest Love and Thanksgiving for you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you…..
