The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-6)

Trifecta of Blessing
A few summer days on the coast…our full clan assembled…for a family wedding. An event that evokes gratitude:
Creator God, I sense your presence on the beach. Your Spirit is revealed in the sun, the waves, the sand. Admittedly, I skipped the sun’s rising, but you were there in the sunsets and star filled evening sky.
Lord Christ, I feel your Spirit in the warmth of family. I find it in the company of friends and their gift of hospitality.
Thanks be to God for these expressions of your presence, love and care. Amen.
