OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
FIRST NOTES
Martha had three sons,Mike, Matt, and Max. Forher upcoming milestonebirthday, Mike bought hismom a big house in whichto live. Matt bought hismom a fancy car. Max,seeking to be creative,thought about his mom’slove of reading the Bible,so he traveled around theworld to find a talkingparrot that memorized thewhole Bible. The parrotwas so trained that all hismom would have to do isname the chapter in theBible, then the parrotwould do all the work.On her birthday, Marthasaid, “Mike, I’m an oldlady. Thank you, but Idon’t need a big house andwill have a difficult timetaking care of it.” “Matt,I’m an old lady. Thank you, but I won’t be drivingmuch at all.” “Max mydear, thank you for thespecial chicken. It wasdelicious!”  Yes, it is an old joke, butit can serve as food forthought. Do we realizeand recognize the gifts wehave from God? Jameswrote, “Every good thinggiven and every perfectgift is from above, comingdown from the Father of lights.” We can make along list of gifts from God:faith, music, creation,love, prayer, family, theHoly Spirit, and remem-brance, just to name avery few. At times, maybe wetake gifts from God forgranted. Do we recognizeand express our gratitudefor God’s gifts? A youngman was given a diction-ary for his birthday. Asked if he liked it heresponded, “It’s a greatgift, but I just can’t findthe words to thank youenough.” We cannotexpress enough gratitudefor the gifts God givesand yet we can expressgratitude anytime theycome to mind.Moving forward fromthe season of Easter,having celebrated thegifts of salvation and newlife brought by the deathand resurrection of Jesus,let us focus onseveral more of God’sgifts to us: faith, music,creation, love, prayer,family, the Holy Spirit andremembrance. Thesegifts are blessings for ourlife and can be sharedblessings as we live outthe Christian life. Withthe many gifts from ourgracious God, let usalways give joyful witnessto the Giver.
