"Lest we Forget"
July 27, 2014
Great American Irish Fest
This is the
Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The word for the week is: "Treasure"
Often as humans we seach after the "pearl" of great price
or spend countless hours looking for that hidden "treasure"
that will change our life. But in our search, we overlook
the gift and treasure that God offers to us each moment
of the day in His Son
Jesus is the GREAT "treasure", Jesus is the "pearl"of GREAT price!!

LIGHT A CANDLE FOR A FRIEND OR SOMEONE IN NEED
Thought of the Week
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; . . . it will surely come. —Habakkuk
Jason took a trip to New York during spring break. One afternoon he and some friends piled into a cab and headed for the Empire State Building. To Jason, the ride on the ground seemed chaotic and dangerous. But when he got to the observation deck of the skyscraper and looked down on the city streets, to his amazement he saw order and design. What a difference a change in perspective made!
Habakkuk learned a similar lesson. When he looked at life from his earthly vantage point, it seemed that God was indifferent to the evil permeating society (Hab. 1:2-4). But God gave him a divine perspective and showed him that life is more than what it seems. The deeds of men cannot thwart the purposes of God (2:3).
Those who don’t show any regard for God may seem to prosper at the moment, but God will ultimately right all wrong. God acts sovereignly in all that comes to pass so that everything works toward His good purpose. God’s plan will surely take place and be on schedule (v.3).
We can’t sort out the whole picture from where we are in life; only God can. So let us continue to live by faith and not by sight. From His perspective, all things are working together for the believer’s good and for His honor.
Sovereign Ruler of the skies,
Our times are in God’s hands; our souls are in His keeping.
