Finding Joy


Parent’s Corner- May 5, 2019


“Though you have not seen him, you love him.  Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with the joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.” 1 Peter 1:8


May the joy of knowing that you Savior lives fill you to overflowing with joy!  In this very busy season of the year, may your whole family experience joy in each other, in your various activities that fill your day, and in the knowledge that you serve a Risen Lord who loves you!
