Most of you opened an email to get to this post. You may have dozens of others sitting in your inbox, but you opened this one. Most of you do it every Monday morning. I want to take a moment just to tell you that I don’t take you for granted. I appreciate you.
I appreciate that most of you have decided to follow Jesus because you have found him to be the one person you can totally trust. You have not found life always easy, but you want to follow him and let him be with you in it and through it, over it and under it.
I appreciate that so many of you are out there living by faith even with great challenges. We try to write things that will help us overcome and go on to do God’s will, but I appreciate that you are examples of people who are doing that. You aren’t just being faithful in trials and difficulties, but you are inspiring other to be faithful.
And then, I appreciate that so many of you make comments and give feedback. Just about the time that I think we need to bring this little form of communication to an end, and close this chapter, I hear something from one of you that reminds me that what we are doing here is worth it and making a difference, and I am encouraged to keep the Moments going.
We will take break the next two weeks, and meet you back here on January 4, but as we get ready for a new year, please know we are thankful for your faithfulness to God, your inspiring lives and your involvement with us.
Have a safe, blessed kingdom-first holiday time.
