Message from Connie Williams, Librarian/Computer Teacher

Psalm 100
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he, who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give things to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good, and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

I love this time of year! Extra time with family and friends; focusing on what we are thankful for and then what gift would bring delight to a loved one! I’ve made it a habit to begin the fall season focusing on this passage in Psalms. The upbeat theme of shouting for joy, worshipping with gladness, not with ‘one more thing to do-ness’, and relishing in the fact that I am a child of God’s, compels me to enter this season with a grateful heart. It is a privilege to be called one of His. This inspires me to live with a grateful attitude through this busy season and to look at each person He allows me to interact with, whether they are family, friend, or the check out person, as a creation of our mighty God and I get to represent the Holy one to them!

I came across this quote by the English novelist Taylor Caldwell, “This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.” Now that’s a lot to shout for joy about! What a promise we have, because we are His!


  1. Thank you for reminding me that I represent the Holy one to all those I interact with. I needed that today.

  2. Connie: Wonderful Psalm and wonderful promise for us. Thank you.
