“We once saw a man draw some black dots. We looked and could make nothing of them but an irregular assemblage of black dots. Then he drew a few lines, put in a few rests, then a clef at the beginning, and we saw these black dots were musical notes. On sounding them we were singing,
“Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below.”
There are many black dots and black spots in our lives, and we cannot understand why they are there or why God permitted them to come. But if we let God come into our lives, and adjust the dots in the proper way, and draw the lines He wants, and separate this from that, and put in the rests at the proper places; out of the black dots and spots in our lives He will make a glorious harmony.” Let us not hinder Him in this glorious work!
–C. H. P.
This week was all about the children. Children were all over our church campus. They were singing, clapping, running, learning… This was the Vacation Bible School week. Huge Thank You to Cory Goss and his incredible team of volunteers! To God be the glory for the excellent program where the children were learning how to be happy in Jesus. Here are just a few photos of the VBS activities:

One thought on “Black dots or musical notes”
Great illustration. I might end up using this in one of my messages at https://www.ChinoSDA.com if you don’t mind. God bless.
