Celebrate the Gift of Today

Pause right now and say. “Ah, the gift of this day! Thank you, Lord.” Help us to acknowledge and celebrate Your continuing presence with us.


"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22-23)

Springtime Praise and Thanksgiving

We bring our praise to You, O God. To whom else shall we go? We are a people custom-made to praise You. So, we do! For rivers of water in dry places, for majestic mountains and mighty oceans, we praise You. We praise You for green, green, GREEN everywhere we look these spring days.


“As we lean into the newness of nature, the color, moisture, and sheen of things, will You give us eyes to see the newness You are creating within us, too?” Diana Trautwein
