Light and life

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens,
Your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
Your justice like the great deep.

O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
How priceless is your unfailing love!

Both high and low among men
find refuge in the shadow of your wings.

They feast on the abundance of your house;
You give them drink from Your river of delights.

For with You is the fountain of life;

And in Your light, we see light.


There is a grieving today in our community ~ a deep loss in our church family.

But there is also hope

and a far greater light than the most glorious sunset.

It is a comfort beyond words to find refuge in Him;

To rest against Him, without understanding, but with deep trust in His unfailing love.

To be carried by Him when we are weak.

To know Him ~ to be known by Him.

He’s all we need.

  1. I sure needed this encouragement to today. Thank you, Kathie. May you all know His deep and abiding comfort today and in the days to come. Blessings..


  2. This was such a lovely, hopeful post. I am sorry for your loss and sorrow. I did want to tell you, my son said there is a new girl interning at the missions group office he’s in (NMSI) and she’s from PEI. Her name is Sarah! I of course immediately wondered if it could be your daughter. But obviously not if she’s in India! I’m glad she wasn’t hurt badly. Those children are so precious! (And so is your child!)
