Elton: Day 37

Provision. That’s been our focus today. In the words of Jewish pilgrims from over two millennia ago, it’s captured in the phrase, “Baruch Haba BShem Adonai,” meaning “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!”

On this Palm Sunday we’ve enjoyed reflecting on God’s provision: the fulfillment of Israel’s long-awaited hope. This anointed One whose name is Jesus inaugurated shalom and of his peace there is no end.

With this gracious provision in mind, we also considered the many ways that God has provided for Elton. These expressions of love have taken various forms; the common denominator though is people, like you, who have offered encouragement and support.

On Elton’s behalf I’d like to offer sincere thanks for your generosity and love.

Blessed be the LORD!
