This week was filled with emotions we remember and the stories behind them. A feeling of joy, love, peace, gratitude and even grief. Take some time this weekend to share with someone a memory that is triggered by a feeling that was present at the time.

We look forward to seeing you in worship this weekend as we begin to talk about gifts that have meant so much to us. Those gifts aren’t always the ones that were purchased at a store or even ones that are wrapped with paper and ribbons but yet they were just the right gift at the right time.

We know you are with us in all of our emotions. Help us to trust you know matter what we feel. As we recall our feelings, we pray that you would fill our hearts with the abundance of your love, joy, peace and hope. Please make us more like you every day so we can show your love in the world. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us as we hope in you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
