From the Desk of the Lay Director – Nov 2018

Several years ago, I had a chance to go to Canada to see the leaves change color. I snapped and snapped pictures, but I realized I could not do them justice, so I put my camera up and just enjoyed the view. So many colors.

Well, yesterday, I went again on a Fall Foliage Tour. But I did not have to go to Canada. There are beautiful trees in Lubbock. Go to the fountains on 82nd east of Kingsgate. Beautiful trees. We went down Indiana, more trees. And the sky was so blue. What a day to get to run errands and to enjoy the beauty outside. God knew what he was doing when he created the earth and all its glory.

Went north of Lorenzo, not many trees in the cotton fields, but the cotton was so pretty and white.
What a contrast in colors. The white of the cotton, the brown of the earth. (And of course, the green of the weeds)

“A faithful man shall abound with blessings.” (Proverbs 28:20) But we have to STOP and remember all the blessings that we do have. Blessings are all around us. Even the mess I have in the living room is a blessing. Of course, I will appreciate it more when it is all bagged up and ready to be distributed.

Do you like to work with computers? The Emmaus community is looking for a Media Chairperson. This person is responsible for putting the words of worship and music on the screens. Francis Daniels has been doing this job and needs to step down. We need someone to run the computer at each Community meeting, Candlelight and Closing. You do not have to do this alone. This is a perfect place to have a committee; to have several persons experienced and to be able to rotate. Francis is able to train and to assist, but cannot be the chairperson. Please pray about serving in this capacity. And thank you so much Francis for your service.

Today’s thought for the day: A life anchored in God will hold steadfast.

Christ has no hand but our hand to do his work today. He has no feet but our feet to lead men in His way. Be Christ’s hands and feet today. Emmaus has opportunities for you to serve. Give me a call.

De Colores,
Donna Campbell
