From the DS
It’s a beautiful brisk morning on this 7th of November here in Fairbanks, Alaska. The thermometer read 6 degrees when I awoke, which is actually not a bad temperature for Fairbanks this time of year. It’s supposed to climb into the 20”s today – very nice!!! I have been in Fairbanks all week, visiting with our Pastors and congregations in this area (Fairbanks 1st, Two Rivers and North Pole), actually concluding with the morning service at North Pole Nazarene tomorrow morning (Sunday Nov. 8th) then headed back home to South Central Alaska.
As we move rapidly toward Thanksgiving and then Christmas, I have been thinking about how much we have to be “Grateful” for!!
“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s
Will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I Thessalonians 5:18
O how I want my attitude to radiate with “THANKFULNESS”!!!! I am so thankful for my wonderful Lord Jesus Christ, His Great Love and Mercy, the abiding indwelling presence of His Holy Spirit, for my family and our district family – Praise the Lord! Yes the list goes on and on ……… we are so blessed, even in difficult circumstances our God is so good to us.
Would you consider joining me in the days left in this year of our Lord 2014 on a “Thankfulness Quest”? Intentionally focusing on growing in our attitude of Thanks, in our prayers, our words, in our thoughts – lets together put on the garment of Praise, and say with the Lord – “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!!! Psalm 118:24.
Rejoicing with you,
Pastor Paul & Patti Hartley
