"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
 
It is a LEAP Year! It happens only once every four years. It is an extra day in the year, an added day in Lent, and more time to do good! Truly a gift. Give God thanks and choose to make it a year you won’t forget by doing something that makes a difference! Here’s how:
 
L Leave it! Those are words I say to my dogs when we are on a walk and they are too interested in what some other animal left behind. It is refuse, the crap that is better left. Clean up your life! What can you leave behind that bogs you down—like bitterness, hatred, unforgiveness, a sin that causes you shame or guilt. You can choose to leave it.
 
E Encourage. Encourage one another and lift each other up. So much more can be accomplished with words that build up rather than those which tear down. Who in your life today needs some encouragement? Choose encouragement.
 
A Alms. Give alms today. Go to our website and find a mission that touches your passion; send a check; take a meal to someone who could use it; make a blanket for a veteran; be your generous self; see your amazing self for who you are, and make a difference.
 
P Pray. Spend some time in prayer today thanking God for life, for the opportunity to wake up and be who God chooses you to be, for people in your life that need care, for the church, and for the world.
 
Bottom Line: it’s not too late!  Choose to make today a day that is special because you are here!
Pastor Karin
