This is the Third Sunday of Lent…

My heart is overflowing with GRATITUDE…I am filled with thanksgiving!

So, I want to SHARE…

Grateful for a family breakfast with Nancy, Josh, James and Jeep [although his diet forced him to eat dry Blue Buffalo — ha ha!]…

Grateful for worship at Crossover Church with James — I am so proud of Pastor Tommy and his ministry in our city…

Grateful for a REAL Sabbath today — dropping in on Alex as he celebrates number 25 — then seeing Risen with Nancy…

Grateful, SO GRATEFUL, for worship last night at Cornerstone Church!!!

I wish I could thank EVERYONE, but I do want to give a few shout-outs!!!

Thank you David, Allen and Matthew for setting up our Family Room…

Thank you Hannah and Myra for loving our babies — Tori, I am so proud of your leadership in this key area…

Thank you Joe and Pauline for ministry to our children…

Thank you Rexie, Maureen, Marsha, Cristina, Alex, Buzz and Matthew for your pre-service intercession. Thank you Jesus for healing my migraine AS WE PRAYED… YAY GOD!!!

Thank you Penny and Katrina for welcoming our family to WORSHIP!!!

Thank you Nancy for all your hard work every week on the PowerPoint — I am so grateful for almost 36 years of ministry partnership… I love you!

Thank you Joanie for all your work behind the scenes to make everything work…

Thanks to everyone who listened [???] to my 8 announcements… Can’t wait to buy some GOOD coffee for our New Friends!!!

WORSHIP was a blessing from heaven — THANK YOU Josh, Stacy, Nancy, Leah, Hannah, Adam, Mike and Justin and Jermane on sound!!! YOU were my favorite part of the service — I would much rather hear you worship than me preach — ha ha!!! I loved the new song FREEDOM!!!

THANK YOU Holy Spirit for letting us “dance” with you during pastoral prayer… I was so grateful to see our family sharing the love of Jesus as we prayed for one another…

What a blessing to commission new leaders — THANK YOU Buzz, Art, Elane, Larry, Leah, Matt [and the other 30 leaders who were commissioned on 2.6 — Tim, Bob, Joanie, Katrina, Stephanie, Wally, Kit, Devon, Cristina, Tori, Joe, Pauline, Justus, Ariel, Joel, Ellen, Evan, Phil, Andy, Andy, Jermane, Penny]… I am so grateful — WE LOVE YOU!!!

I loved the interview during the sermon with our Valentine’s Day Outreach Team — Dominique, Roberto, Hugh, Josh [sorry we missed you Daryl, Jennifer, Kelly, Mike, Tara, Ellen and Keri] — you are living out the mission of Jesus in Luke 4!!! Thanks also to Claire and April for helping with the cards…

THANK YOU Jesus for giving me fresh insights to share on Luke 4.14-21 and Isaiah 61.1-2 — I am so excited about our series “The Journey to HOPE!” I loved the talk on FAVOR — may we be people who BOTH receive and share God’s FAVOR!!!

Remember — “You have never locked eyes with any person that Abba does not love, that Jesus did not die for and that Holy Spirit is not pursuing! The bottom line is love, blessing and FAVOR!”

Communion was AWESOME! Thank you Penny for setting the table… “Break Every Chain” was so anointed… Thank you Abba, Jesus and Holy Spirit for inviting us to the Table of Freedom…

THANK YOU Stephanie and teams for Healing Prayer at the end…

Great blessing Cristina — I almost used that very same verse in the sermon!!!

Thank you for joining our prayer VIGIL after worship for the McClung family — Larry, Marsha, Rexie, Adam, Art, Elane, Joanie, Andy, Bob, Cindi, Cristina, Maureen and Alex… What a healing Presence in the Prayer Room!

I am so blessed…

Blessings!!!
