MONEY. There, the word is out there … the topic that no-one likes to talk about … especially when it comes to talking about their own! It is easier to talk about the government’s money, or that of my rich neighbor (who is my neighbor, anyway?). But I do not want to talk about mine, and, even more so, I do not want you talking about mine.
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song. This Cornerstone, this solid ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace, when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My Comforter, my all in all, here in the love of Christ I stand.
The average high temperature in Eastpointe for April 22 is 60 degrees, with the average low around 42o. However, our highs the last two days have been at or below the average low – which of course means that the lows are south of 30o. And what did you think of that snow accumulating on those newly mowed lawns? Talk about cold!
This is my personal journey through the struggles of life battling depression and anxiety. It was when I spiraled and crashed, that my life actually began. In my pain, God gave me purpose. In my times of great loss, God gave me life. The journey was not easy, but it was worth every moment. I am sharing this with you, so you will know you are not alone. You have worth and value, exactly how you are and where you are in life, exactly AS IS.
Christ is risen, Christ is living, Dry your tears, be unafraid!
Death and darkness could not hold Him, Nor the tomb in which He lay.
Do not look among the dead for One who lives forevermore;
Tell the world that Christ is risen, Make it known He goes before.
How about those Tigers! They bounced right back from getting swept in Cleveland, and immediately made their own impressive “brooming” of Houston. Pitching … hitting … runs galore. It got a little dicey in the ninth inning last night, but Garcia struck out the final hitter on just three or four pitches. These Tigers are a definite “one up” in my book.
Greetings from Camp Restore Detroit! Last week, youth from Our Shepherd Lutheran Church in Birmingham, MI spent two days serving in our community. They worked alongside many different community members cleaning up street corners, sidewalks, abandoned lots, and helping some of our neighbors.
Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
On Easter morning I almost opened the announcements by saying, “How about those first place Tigers?!” Then, for a while yesterday I was hoping to be able to say it again today – all we needed was to hang on to our lead over the Twins and for Cleveland to defeat the Royals. First place sounds pretty good – even if it is only April 8.
