Is it just me, or have the last seven days been long and seemingly endless to you too? As I was reflecting this morning on my life in the past week, it seems that it revolves around SNOW! Between you and me, I am now officially tired of snow. Yes, it is beautiful to look at, I even enjoy pushing it around on my driveway from time to time, but it is no fun when your vehicle is buried up to its gills in it! One of the blessings of the past week is that many of us have had more time to reconnect as families which is a great thing. I think one of the things that has made the past week drag so slowly for me is that I have not had the opportunity to interact with my church family. There has been little of no connection with many of my spiritual family. We were designed by God to function in relationship with one another. When we are hindered in coming together, as we were this past Sunday and Wednesday, we are not able to experience the joy of encouragement and fellowship. When we come together as a church family this coming Sunday, I expect that there will be an excited energy, the kind of energy that comes when you are really looking forward to seeing the ones that you love. For many of us, it will have been two weeks since we have seen one another. It is my hope that by not having our time together this past week that we will be hungry to be together this week, that we will not take for granted the time that we have each week to spend together in praise of our Great God and hearing from His Word. Sunday is going to be a great day of reconnecting together as a part of the family of God. It makes me look forward to the day when God’s entire family will reconnect together for good in the presence of God. I am looking forward to reconnecting with you this Sunday.
