Almost there




.

We're having a blend of minimal sunshine and plenty of rain this Spring. Besides a less than ideal harvest of vegetables, most plants are pretty confused.



Picture a bursting tree rooted next to another lurking in preparation. The past 5 years were having uniform blooms flourishing in unison.

Anyway, I think we're almost there.

But this season feels more like a weighty drape when church is going through a difficult time. Pastor is once again crestfallen with cancer, which took away his stomach 2 years ago, this time his lungs are affected. The Sunday service left everybody in tears... it was hard.



It's difficult to feel happy unless everybody is.



Pastor Morimoto will be seeking some intense treatment that comes with dreadful side effects. We're praying for God's merciful healing, and peace in the hearts of the family.

looks like the cherry blossoms are in full bloom!

May your pastor experience God's merciful touch, and his family have peace and acceptance in their hearts.

Stardust, my heart goes for your church and your pastor. We often will never understand why the most faithful has to endure more hardship than others. However, God has a purpose :-)

2 Corinthians 1:3,4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Cancer is such a horrible disease. We will keep your pastor in our thoughts and prayers, Stardust.
