This year we have over 40 GEMS! We have amazing counselors who pour the truths of the Bible and the love of God into these girls each week. This year’s GEMS theme is Be a Blessing.

We are a few months into the new ministry year, programs are well under way and there appears to be a growing energy throughout our church family.

Why is that when life gets busy one of the first things to suffer is my prayer life? As the schedule fills, time slips away. I may distractedly still go through the motions of reading my Bible, but my mind is already preoccupied with all that needs to be done for the day. Before long I realize an entire day has gone by and I’ve said little more than “Hey God – Hi, bye!”

I had to buy Christmas presents this week. Normally I don’t like to think about Christmas till Advent, but when your daughter moves her family across the ocean, that’s just not possible. So the presents are purchased and will be delivered tomorrow to the children’s other Grandma, who will take them to Manchester at the end of the month.
