It’s amazing!  Wow!  I’ve never seen anything like that in my life ever!  Truly amazing!

I’m talking about the weather!  It’s the end of January and over 50 degrees outside.  The sky is clear – not a cloud in sight, and the wind is calm.  If this weather keeps up, I’ll need give some serious thought to getting some garden seeds planted so the plants will be ready to be placed in the garden.

The weather is of course is not the only amazing thing happening around these parts of the country.  When I look around Christ Our Savior of the Valley Lutheran Church, I see some very amazing things happening.  Babies and young children are being baptized!  Adults are being instructed and joining our congregation.  Visitors have be making their first visit to our church.  More and more people are getting involved in activities such as Bible Study, teaching children, assisting with worship and much more.  And now we are planning for a big summer event in our community.  Praise God for all the amazing things happening in our congregation and community!

And there is still more – the most amazing thing is this – God is still the same!  Yes, God is still forgiving sins.  He is still loves everyone no matter where they’ve been – no matter what they have done.  He is still offering the free gift of salvation to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  He is still in our presence just as He promised He would be.  He is still directing and protecting us.  He’s still in control of this world – yes it’s still in His hands.  He’s still healing the sick through doctors and nurses.  Isn’t that amazing!

I do hope you can see what God is doing in our community.  And I would like to invite you to come and see what God is doing in our congregation.  Just like me – you may well be amazed.
