Pastor Sally’s Devotional 2/20

| February 20, 2021

Dear friends,


My husband and I went to McNaughton Park yesterday to admire the snow and see the ice on the river.  While we were there we happened on a couple of squirrels who were chasing each other up and down one of the trees.  Then one of them decided to head on over to the next tree.  He leaped into 18 inches of snow and fortunately did not sink.  Then he started running or swimming through the snow as fast as he could.  Mike and I both broke up laughing.  I’ve never seen a squirrel swim through the snow!  I think he was happy to get to the next tree.


Sometimes we are like that squirrel.  We jump off into something and find we are in deeper than we imagined and wow, we have to scramble!  I think this year of pandemic has been like that.  We have been swimming through the snow for 11 months now and some of us are getting a little tired.  Ok… a lot of us are getting tired.  But I think the tree is just up ahead.  With vaccine distribution growing and the winter surge behind us, I am beginning to believe there is a new day coming! 


In the meantime we remember the words of Paul to the church in Thessalonica:

Rejoice always, pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  (I Thess. 5:16 – 18)  God is faithful still.



Pr. Sally
