FUMC Post - Harvey Update #8


From Pastor Laura: 11/14/17

"Thus, all human life on the earth is like grass, and all human glory is like a flower in a field. The grass dries up and its flower falls off, but the Lord's word endures forever."     1 Peter 1: 24-25

There is a comfort for me in this verse; a permission to be a simple part of creation, wholly small, beautiful, and fleeting.   I loved to play in the grass.  We raked it into piles at times and could shape them into nests.   I also loved the zinnias and marigolds that grew in our flower bed.   I loved the smell of dirt as we dug potatoes out of the ground in harvest season.   All are reminders that the joy each invokes is but a sliver of time, offered as gift to be seen, touched, smelled, and savored.   The word of God saw the creation and said, "It is good."   I give thanks for the enduring Word of God.   It speaks life and love from a blade and a flower.    May God be glorified in our flowering today and tomorrow.  May God be glorified when dust hangs on the eternal Word - "you are my child, my beloved, and I am pleased with you."

We are still trying to fix an issue of directions that lead guests to Lamar (north of Copano Bay) rather than into Historic District of Rockport.   Hope this helps you get your bearings.  We don't want to miss your visit.
