Three Things I Love About Fall!

Fall Is Here 1024x687 Three Things I Love About Fall!

 

Wow can you believe the Fall Season is upon us again?  This is my absolutely favorite season.  Absolutely! Positively!  There are three things I love about Fall.

First by far, it’s visiting the cider mills.  A few years back I vowed to visit every cider mill and/or apple orchard in Michigan.  I have visited quite a few and this year will be no different.  My all time favorite is Franklin Cider Mill because not only is it the first I visited as a little girl I personally believe they have the best cider and donuts.  Keep your eyes open because this year I will be sharing my many visits to the cider mills.

Second it’s my love for the colors.  I believe I turn into a different person when the trees begin to turn their colors.  It just takes my breath away when I see the many colors. The bright yellows, reds, and oranges.  Truly amazing!

And last but not least it’s the fellowship with family and friends.  To gather on the weekends to experience the love, laughter, movies and above all the feeling of home!

None of this for me would be possible without the Grace of God.  The joy, peace, love and excitement that fills my Fall experience is because I have accepted, believe and rest in the love and finished work of my Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST.

I couldn’t always say that.  I’ve been saved all my adult life and most of that time I was miserable.  Absolutely miserable. In and out of church doing this and doing that with no consistency but when I decided that Jesus is enough for me and truly begin to embrace how much our Heavenly Father loves me (us).  Ohhhhh boy, things began to change.  Please understand not all at once, but now, how sweet it is to rest in the power of God’s Grace.

With that being said, whooo, hoooo!  Fall is here!  On the calendar it begins this year on Tuesday the 22nd at 10:29pm EST according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.  So let’s enjoy this season together.

Always remember for those that are seeking a good church home in Detroit we are here for you.  Come and let’s worship our Heavenly Father together.  Ask for me (Sister Lorrie Brown), I would love to see you there and welcome you with a great big Godly hug. Come Sunday.  Email me at helpinghand@stirupyourgift.com if you have any questions.

To God Be The Glory,

The Lack Of Church Fellowship And How To Fix It!

Church Fellowship2 The Lack Of Church Fellowship And How To Fix It!

This is my opinion.  I believe the one of the biggest problems with the lack of church fellowship is we forget we are a family and therefore distracted by the shiny things of this world.  We forget that our Heavenly Father wants us to come together to praise and worship Him and then give us a Word we can hear to build our faith and a stronger relationship.

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

Many of us forget that we not only need to be encouraged but that our Heavenly Father has someone He wants us to encourage.  To invite others to come and fellowship with Him together.

How do we fix this problem of forgetting the importance of church fellowship?  Attend church services as often as we can and keep in mind it’s what our Heavenly Father asked us to do in His word.

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some is; but exhorting one another, and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”  Hebrews 10:25

Let’s go to church this week remembering we are coming to lift each other up with a compliment; a smile; a word of encouragement; a hug; meet a new member; bring someone and most of all collectively praise and worshipping our Lord, our God, our Healer, our Provider, our Savior.

If you are seeking a good church home we here for you.  Come and worship our Heavenly Father and fellowship with our Christian family.  Ask for me (Sister Lorrie Brown), I would love to see you there and welcome you with a great big Godly hug.  Come this Sunday.  Email me at helpinghand@stirupyourgift.com.
