Alphabet...

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Zion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!!

Oh, and I like this alphabet poem. It's really clever.

Hi Pilot Mom!

First, thank you for stopping at my blog. I pray that these connections will be used to strengthen and edify the Body of Christ here. Next, really clever post! Please read the whole essay on the pastor; it is really enlightening! It explains the "evolution" of the pastor, and provides the basis for what we need to do to return to the church as it began.
