I am thankful for the people God has put together as His church here at Amelia Baptist. After making a quick decision in April of this year to retire and move to the island and having visited this church on vacations and weekends the last 15 years, the decision for a church family was not a choice. Teresa and I are thankful for all of you for accepting us as you do for everyone that visits this church.
Thank You Lord for saving my soul
Thank You Lord for making me whole
Thank You Lord for giving to me
Life abundant so rich and free.
I've sort of claimed a seat in our condo as my sanctuary. Since moving to our dream location I've awakened early every day. I go and sit in the dark where the stars are visible and the trees are sometimes swaying with the wind. My first thoughts are to clothe myself with the Spiritual Armor, which includes joy, and then spending time talking and listening to God. Another thanks I have is learning, applying and enjoying the Bible studies and prayer groups that I participate in here on the island.
Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary
Pure and holy, tried and true
With thanksgiving, I'll be a living
Sanctuary for You
