Persevering Through Tough Times

“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of faith.”  Hebrews 12:1
Recently, I read a statistic that 77% of Detroit area homes were watching the Super Bowl last Sunday. Were you included in this statistic?

If so, you had the opportunity to join the support for former Detroit Lion quarterback, Matthew Stafford, as he led the LA Ram’s to a 23 - 20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals and finally hear him chant the iconic phrase “We’re going to Disneyland” at the conclusion of the game.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas as you celebrate the BEST gift of all... Jesus!

With much Love,
The Staff of St. Matthew Lutheran Church and School

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Go Tell it on the Mountain!

“Whatever you do for the least of these, you do unto Me.” Matthew 25:40

One of my favorite songs in our Preschool/Kindergarten Christmas program is “Go Tell It On The Mountain”. My heart just smiles every time this group gets to the chorus and their sweet little voices enthusiastically belt out the message:

“Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on tell mountain that Jesus Christ is born!”

Help Is Coming!

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). Matthew 1: 22-23

Thanksgiving Cleanup!

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever!” Psalm 136:1

So the conversation started with the painful statement, “Mom, with this new job, I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it home for Thanksgiving!”

As my children have evolved into adulthood, I have been forced to become accustomed to change. Those treasured family memories of everyone always being together have become more sporadic due to employment, relocations, and marriage. However, this would be the first Thanksgiving without our youngest in attendance!
