Weekend Blessings

This weekend was amazing. We got work done and also enjoyed beautiful walks along the cliffs and fun waves. The pelicans, cormorants, dolphins and seals were fishing and putting on quite a show. On Saturday we celebrated Steve’s birthday with a morning walk and a festive early breakfast at Margaritas in Ocean Beach and later at the PB Surf Shop Christmas party.

Pastor Mike’s sermon in church on Sunday at Calvary Point Loma was inspiring as always. We are studying James 5. Today’s topic was “Patience in Suffering.” “Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” James 5:10-11

This is inspiring scripture and so important to turn to, when we encounter valleys or challenges in life that can seem so long.

God bless you!
