Sitting here thinking about Valentine’s Day. there’s something I heard today in a sermon.
For God so loved the world that he have his only son, that whoever believes in him should live forever! (John 3:16 Paraphrased)
For many of us this is not a new verse, its well known to many people whether they are Christian or not!
This act of sacrifice on Gods part as well on the part of Jesus has got to be the ultimate Valentines gift.
It is because of this gift that I now have the opportunity to eternal life. I may still die in my old age but such are the wages of sin, atleast I have the knowledge that according to my God I will not perish to existence.
Thinking on Valentines Day and this verse gives me hope that God Cares a great deal for all of us.
Valentine’s Day! Saturday! Choir Tour in Saskatoon! The day has been a busy one! It has also most importanly been a blessing to all of us!
We sang three times today, this mornings service was at Pinehouse.
Our secondary service today was at the recently reopened church on Victoria Avenue. Where we heard speached from the Mayor of Saskatoon and a police representative.
We then headed over to the SDA nursing home in Saskatoon here where we brought so much Joy to their smiling faces, some time later after visiting with some wonderful people we headed over to the SDA church school gym for a games night.
It has been a blessing today here in Saskatoon!
Quick update to all my friends and family back home. The Canadian University College and Parkview Adventist Academy Choral Union set out today on our Saskatchewan tour. We left Lakeview this Morning at 9:00 AM in two busses! There is about 71 of us packed in there and we sailed along all the way to Saskatoon, where we had our first Concert! We have all been Billited out to homes in the area to get ready for an awesome day tomorrow! Sleep time now!
Blessings pour forth on the Sabbath! After an amazingly restful night at the homes of our billets, we made our way to the Kelona SDA Church. Here we were blessed to share the day with this amazing church family! As we left the building we were shocked to see it had started snowing! Loading the buss for a long ride through the mountains, we settled in for a long and chilly ride. The snowbanks at points were as high as the buss!
The day for the Canadian University College and Parkview Adventist Academy Choral Union, started bright an early. Collecting all members and loading the buss we left CUC at around 7:30AM, we headed south towards BC and through the Rocky Mountains! Three hours later as we arrived in Banff. Set in the backdrop of the rocky mountains, snow covered trees and herds of Caribou meandered about their business. The beauty and majesty of our Lords creation never ceases to amaze!
Continuing our journey through the mountains stopping briefly at the D Dutchmen Dairy Farm in Sicamous BC, we got to pet the cows and enjoy a wonderful assortment of ice creams! What a delicious treat! We were greeted at the Pleasant Valley Christian Academy in Vernon at 5:00PM where we enjoyed a wonderful delicious assortment of soup in preparation for our concert that evening! The acoustics in the church were beautiful, it was a absolute pleasure to sing our songs in such a wonderfully warm atmosphere. The Sabbath Day is upon us, our Friday of seeing, tasting and listening to the wonders of God’s creation has been an amazing success!
