Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

God made this verse come alive in my heart yesterday. It's the one I tried to quote at lunch yesterday. ;)

Father, you did indeed do more than we ever asked or imagined with this trip because it was solely YOUR power at work within us. To YOU be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever! AMEN! We praise You, we lift You up, we magnify, exalt and extol You. We lift our hands in total praise to you. You are our shield and the glory and lifter of our heads! There is no God like Jehovah. You are the rock that we hide in, our shelter from the storm. We praise you because we have taken the "old highway" which led us to Your saving grace and mercy. The cross was enough and this is our testimony and it will always be! Jesus, we love You because You care and we couldn't imagine if You weren't there. Help us not to walk by the table of grace without stopping to feast each day so we don't have to live on yesterday's bread. Thank you that our chains are gone and we've been set free because our God and Savior has ramsomed us. Praise You because you are ALIVE, FOREVER, AMEN!!!

I hope you know how proud I am of you. Thank you for your patience and flexibility on this trip. It was an absolute joy and pleasure to spend time with you. Special thanks to Bruce for handling all the arrangements. I know he spent countless hours preparing and taking care of all the details. Also to Chris for coordinating all the sound issues and hauling all our "stuff". Thank you both, for your servant's heart.

Enjoy your night off from choir practice.
Next week we will DIVE into Christmas! Don't forget we have an extra practice scheduled for NOVEMBER 18th. We will do lots of sectional work, so it is vitally important we have everyone there! Mark your calendars!!!!!
