I’t Never Too Late!

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 5:36 am
I expected to do this blog entry earlier this evening.  My favorite TV shows have ended their season, so I was not watching TV and I thought I would just spend a little time trying to find a piece of writing, that I did years ago and want to reuse, and then come and do this blog.  Well, as I began to take things out of the large box where I knew I had put some of my writings. I kept finding more and more stuff and putting them on the bed.  Of course I knew I would have to get them off the bed to go to sleep, so I got them grouped up somewhat, (the writings which were my journal entries were the easiest to group) and moved.  I did not find what I was looking for but I found many other interesting bits of writing that were just musings, but can be made into a real essay or article.
I also located a piece that I had been searching for some time ago.  It is one I feel very attached to.  The Lord gave me the inspiration for it at a very difficult time in my life which my faith was being sorely tested.  I wrote it as Simon Peter giving his testimony explaining why he denied Christ.  I had always heard it preached that he was a coward, but God gave me a new understanding into his real motivation, which was what I was experiencing
This was a good day.  The weather finally has warmed up, but a bit too much too soon.  It was up to 90 in parts of the city, but it was sunny and lovely, even with the heat.  I will not complain, unless we get a spell of temperatures that hot for a week or more.  But, it was the Lord’s day too, so how could one not rejoice.  It was Pentecost Sunday and Pastor talked about the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost and how He gave the disciples the power to speak in tongues and connected them to Christ and each other.  As He said, that is the only way we can be connected to God by having His power in us.
At 2:30 in the afternoon there was a celebration of the beginning of a new church Pastor and other church leaders have started for youth and children.  They call it g2g meaning generation to generation.  The core group of adults have been working with the youth in several areas, computer classes, boxing, physical fitness, a youth band, art and Latin dance.  The District Director of the United Methodist Church district we are in was there as was the minister responsible for the church planting ministry.  A folkloric dance group performed, The youth band LH2O, (Living Water) played and sang,, a Praise Dance group from another church had a number and the Latin dancers did their dancing.  Of course Pastor shared a short message also.  Next week they are going to have baptisms and renewal of vows at Calumet Beach and a program at a park at 2:30 again.
