It has been a wonderful year of service to our precious Lord, to our community in association with the Cuba Avenue Church of Christ (we are now entering our fifteenth year in the high-mountain desert of the great Southwest), and to the thousands who weekly take time to reflect upon my Reflections on various biblical topics and texts. No matter how much one enjoys one's work (and I truly do), it is always good to get away for a time of physical relaxation and mental/spiritual renewal. God's Son understood only too well the necessity for those in ministry to "get away by yourselves to a secluded location and rest for a while" (Mark 6:31). That greatly needed and appreciated time of rest has now come once again for Shelly and me ... and we're ready.
In just a few short days we'll be flying to several beautiful locations across our great country, and to visit kids and grandkids. Shelly and I request your prayers for a safe journey to these places and back. Since we'll be on vacation for the next several weeks, my weekly Reflections will be on hiatus. They will resume their weekly distribution, however, following our return the first week in June. Until then, may God richly bless each of you, and we thank you for your continued support of this ministry.
