HEINEN HAPPENINGS – November 2020

Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
(Psalm 105:1–4 ESV)

Even in the midst of our season of COVID, election chaos, and financial struggle, I pray you have a thankful heart that recognizes God’s power and His loving care for you. As the Psalmist says, may you call upon His name and seek Him continually through this challenging time. As the Scriptures remind us, when we seek Him, we WILL find Him, if we seek Him with all of our hearts!

Our little family has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season. We are extremely thankful this day after Veteran’s Day for all who have served our country in the armed forces. Thank you!

Thank you for your service!

Our girls are doing great. Maria continues to manage online classes and on-campus classes. She officially moved into the next phase of her elementary education training. She is happy to be our chauffer, which we appreciate!

Victoria and Noah are enjoying married life. Victoria is juggling classes at the elementary, middle and high schools. Because of COVID, the middle school went all virtual for a few weeks. Now the high school is doing the same. It looks like her Christmas concerts will be cancelled. Her students did great in their All-region contest.

Rebekah is applying for social work jobs, now that New Jersey finally approved her state license. She and Tim enjoy their home church, as well as their visits to Tim’s home church as he preaches every other week. Rebekah sings quite often. Their two cats keep them busy.

Leah continues her ministry of intercession for many of you. We celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary this week. How wonderful it is to keep growing more in love as the years pass. Here is a wedding picture I know you have seen before. It is the only one on my computer, so enjoy!

Happy Anniversary, Sweetie!

I turned 58 this week. I am another year older, but I don’t know if I am another year wiser. Rebekah called from New Jersey, Victoria had her class sing for me, and Maria bought me a Packer facemask.

I know many of you are facing troubling circumstances in your lives. If I can pray for any of you, please contact me. If any of you are struggling with the heartbreak of this season, please read my recent blogpost, I had a dream… . I invite you to participate in an online support group that is detailed in the blogpost.

In this season where you wonder where God may be, I invite you to read Scripture with me online. I always find Him best in the pages of His Word. If you want to explore and discuss God’s Word with me, please contact me.

We are in the midst of trying to figure out what we can do for Christmas at our wonderful church and in our neighborhood. Like your Thanksgiving, ours will probably be a bit low key this year. Even so, Happy Thanksgiving!

Again, how can I pray for you? Please let me know.
