Thank you . . .
Dear Centenary family;
As I said I feel the need to write a second thank you after all the gifts and kind words I received last Sunday. I think I was too stunned to say much.
One of the questions in the Bible study of Romans was about an experience during which we felt humbled. Well this was it. I certainly felt underserving of all the outpouring of gifts which were so impressive. The quilt from the Threads of Love was not only my favorite color, but also had pianos on it, which I did not notice Sunday. I actually had a piano just like that for about 35 years, after which I needed to give it away because of the problems it presented.
Then when I got home and opened the other present, which was that beautiful plate containing the Lord’s Prayer, which you never got to see. Again, stunned to stupid!
And on top of that more money than I could imagine you could collect for me.
And if that were not humbling enough, your kind words were even more so. It is my desire to use music to praise and glorify and please God. But it is a constant struggle with the ego. I guess you have caught that desire, which makes me grateful. My love of God has a tremendous amount of growing to do as well. So, if you saw any of that in me, God was very gracious to allow the mustard seed to be seen.
So, you have topped your already extensive kindness to me.
And all I can leave you with is my appreciation, love for who you are and what you do, and The Blessing. “May His favor be upon you and a thousand generations and your children and their children. He Is for You” Kari Jobe et all.
