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

gift of awareness
photo by Erin Doyle

“How do we keep in the forefront of our minds
the simple fact that we live
in an indescribably wonderful world?
It’s not easy.
Routine dulls the eye and ear.
Repetition and familiarity fog the capacity
for astonishment.
Even so, moments come to all of us
when everything seems fresh
and new and marvelous.
This gift of awareness makes possible
some of our happiest hours.
We need to be receptive to it
and grateful for it.”
- Arthur Gordon
(A Touch of Wonder)
