This week I have had a medical issue. I am grateful for all the help I have received from healthcare professionals and effective medicines. The loving concern of family members and friends, plus the support from church family, have helped in so many ways. God has been present in them all. Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” It is a statement of faith and certainty followed by these words in v. 2, “Therefore we will not fear.” Sickness or troubles stir up fear in us, which is why we need to turn to God in prayer and ask his help. All our prayers may not be answered immediately, yet God’s help will come in many ways and through many people. Let us remember Hebrews 4:16 says, “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” (NLT) May God bless your week! Diane Cooke, Pastor, Presbyterian Churches of Willow Springs and Mtn.

We've had a mild winter compared to some plus an early spring only means summer is in sight.  I know many who have already dusted off the grill and enjoyed some homemade bar-b-que and for me, grilling dinner is a favorite summer outing. And you can't grill without a good barbecue sauce right? Have you ever made your own? It's easier than you think and so much better than store-bought and you can customize each batch.  Most recipes have the same base but this one is an upgrade and you should have many of the ingredients already on hand. So, grab a pretty bottle or jar and make a batch, one for you and one for the hostess at the next cookout. This stuff is so good, you'll be hooked. Happy grilling! more
