Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

pure pleasures

“I praise Thee for the life
that stirs within me:
I praise Thee for the bright
and beautiful world into which I go:
I praise Thee for earth and sea and sky,
for scudding cloud and singing bird:
I praise Thee for the work
Thou hast given me to do:
I praise Thee for all that Thou
hast given me to fill my leisure hours:
I praise Thee for my friends:
I praise Thee for music and books
and good company and pure pleasures.”
- John Baillie
