I just wanted to send out a note to say how good and pleasant and joyful and sweet it was to be with you this morning! My Mom, each time Emily and I visited in Michigan, would send us off with the words, "Remember, you have precious cargo in that car!" The thought occurred to me this afternoon that each of us, in our relationship one with another, is the keeper of "precious cargo".
I will sleep tonight with the joy and peace of knowing so many brothers and sisters!
Here's a prayer with which to end this beautiful Lord's Day...
O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last. Amen.
May Jesus Christ be praised!
