Sitting In my Study

Jun 22,2020 by Lee Thomas (Edited Apr 19, 2021 by Scott McMurrain)

Right now I'm sitting in my study at the church and listening to the fans blow! There are fans everywhere in this building. Blowing to dry the excessive moisture caused by the flood we had last weekend. They've been brought in by Servpro. Perhaps you have seen their commercials on TV as being people who come in to clean up messes from disasters. They've certainly responded to our need here as a result of all the water damage we've had.

The guys from Servpro have said the fans will probably be removed in a day or two. So the wind inside will stop blowing. But we are now in the month of March. What is the old rhyme? I think it goes, "March winds and April showers bring about those spring May flowers."

Spring is on the way. Before we know it the snow will be melted, the trees will be green again and we'll be enjoying some warmer weather. I think those are some things to be grateful for.

I'm a child of the 70's and 80's. So I remember a time when songs that are now considered a little on the cheesy side were quite popular. For example, at summer camp we use to sing the song Pass It On. Now we kind of roll our eyes when we remember that song because it brings images to mind similar to ones of hippies sitting around a campfire holding hands singing Kumbaya. But the words to Pass It On seem especially appropriate as we move toward warmer days. The second verse of that song that you may remember is -

"What a wondrous time is Spring when all the trees are budding. The flowers start to bloom , the birds begin their singing. That's how it is with God's love, once you've experienced it. You want to sing, It's fresh like Spring! You want to pass it on."

I hope you'll come to church this month and thank God for all the good things He does. I hope you'll pass on His love to others wherever you are. I'm sure looking forward to Spring. I'd be willing to bet you are too!

Grace and Peace,

Lee Thomas
