Happy 30th Anniversary!

Posted by The Neely Team

With hearts full of gratitude to the Lord and our wonderful parents for His faithfulness to them and their faithfulness to each other, we Neely siblings decided 30 years of marriage was an occasion to celebrate! Plans began to form as the Lord directed our steps, and the surprise party was a delightful success!

We started the surprise by having our extended family at our house for dinner after church. That itself was shocking when Dad & Mom walked into our dining room and found family from far and near!

But then we added another layer to the surprise, and invited several close friends for a dessert reception following. What a blessing it is to celebrate the faithfulness and mercy of God with so many loved ones!

With Kathryn’s soon approaching wedding, a dear friend hosted a bridal shower to start the bride off with some new kitchen essentials. Such a blessing! It was an evening of sweet fellowship and laughter as we celebrated this new season of Kathryn’s life.

The menu was a bountiful salad buffet and ice cream bar!

It is with great joy that I invite you to visit Daniel & Kathryn’s new website! It’s been a blessing to watch my little sister wait for the Lord’s perfect timing, seek His very best, communicate with this incredible young man, and then say “YES!” when the big question was asked.

IMG_2620-JLStudios-160411

Can’t wait to see how the Lord will use this dynamic team to advance His kingdom. I’m a blessed big sister!

Psalm 31:19 – “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!”

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works… The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.” Psalm 145

The Gifts He Gives

Posted by Victoria

Jan

Through out this Christmas season, we have seen how the Father delights to give gifts to His children – good gifts. Gifts that demonstrate how His “merciful kindness is great toward us.” (Psalm 117:2)

The first of these gifts was that three of us were able to play in an orchestra, put together to accompany a choir in a lovely Christmas cantata conducted by Dr. Tim Fisher. We know of two more souls being saved into the eternal Kingdom of Christ – for this we praise Him.

I’m sure there are many more gifts and blessings that were bestowed on us through all through last month, any one of which would be worth remembering and mentioning. However, there is one gift that stands in the forefront of all of our minds. Just a few days after Christmas, someone noticed an unknown vehicle coming in the driveway, which immediately set everyone wondering who could be coming- Mom went out first to see who it was, and one by one we each followed to see what the excitement was about. To say the very least, we were surprised… to be more descriptive, we were shocked, electrified, ecstatic, amazed, dumbfounded, nearly speechless, grateful.

We saw standing in our garage dear people who we had not seen in nearly two years, but with whom we had not extensive opportunity to visit in more than seven years. Our dearly beloved first violin teacher and her husband, who was also our music pastor several years ago, had come by to say “hello,” on their way out of town. These dear ones moved to the beautiful but too-far-away state of Wyoming nearly nine years ago, and their unexpected arrival at our home was such a blessing to us! We talked for a precious few minutes, and then saw them back on their way to the West.

Thank you Pr. Joseph & Mrs. Sarah for brightening our day, our entire Christmas season, and most importantly, our hearts. You demonstrate the beautiful love and joy of God to us. We love you, and praise the Lord for you!

With a grateful heart, I lift my voice in adoration

to the Lord of earth and sky and sea.

He is Creator of all, the God who rules and reigns above.

Yet so tenderly He cares for me

With His everlasting love.

 

Boundless grace, and mercy overflowing,

Peace that floods my soul, salvation rich and free!

Joy that fills my heart, and love that knows no measure:

These are the Gifts He gives to me!

 

I am so blessed to be a Child of King.

As I follow where He leads, He makes my spirit sing!

 

Boundless grace, and mercy overflowing,

Peace that floods my soul, salvation rich and free!

Joy that fills my heart, and love that knows no measure:

These are the gifts, the precious gifts-

These are the gifts the Father gives to me!

After far too long without time for one-on-one fellowship, we were delighted to have the Wikman family at our house for Memorial Day! What a blessing to spend time together again — the sweetness of the bond we share in Christ with other believers is truly a foretaste of the glory that awaits us in Heaven.

Games… Smile Corn Toss, especially, was one of the weekend favorites.

A sweet time singing hymns and reading the Word together on the porch.
