  "How dear to me is your dwelling, O Lord of hosts!

                 My soul has a desire and a longing for the courts of

                                               the Lord;

                 My heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God." Ps. 84, v1


On the first Sunday of this month I was standing at the back of the church, in my choir robe, waiting to process down the aisle singing a favorite hymn, noticing the congregation filled with many familiar smiling faces and thinking to myself: I am so blessed to be in this place of worship, God's house, my home away from home, where I am  surrounded by love, where a sense of peace always fills my soul. As the service progressed and psalm eighty-four was read, it struck me that verse one summed up my thoughts in a nutshell.


St. Matthew's, my dwelling place on Sunday mornings, always makes

my heart and soul rejoice in the living God especially when I'm in the

midst of such a loving parish family.
