East winds blow
from desert plane
Over rocky lips in surge
Creating crests of white
Distortions in the river of life
Fingers of cold
Pursue pockets warm
Reaching ever west to arms extent
Gust and howl
Test branch and root
Crowns bent low
Weakened trunks of strength
What remains when teeth restrain
Stalwart spines who's roots run deep
Sheltered outposts of retreat
In challenge our resolve does grow
Rest, replenish and repair
Better equipped to defeat despair
And on the day when Kingdom shines
Before our Maker
Stand we refined
The race is run
Our place defined

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
Darrell and I are snug as a bug in the cabin listening to the bay howl like the seashore. Button down the hatches because it is going to be a loooooooong night. Be careful out there friends.
This coming Sunday, December 14 at 1 PM, Worship at the River is returning to...
**********!!!THE TROUTDALE HOUSE!!!**********
Sing with me, "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
Very nicely sung. Thank you.
This will be a special night because:
1) we return to The Troutdale House.
2) Laura and Martin Burlus, and a few family members, will be our special guests to pamper and spoil.
3) many delicious potluck dishes will be shared, including a turkey, while stories of appreciation are told as we gather around the tables.
4) each of you has a psalm to share.
5) each of you has a teaching to share.
6) some of you will share a tongue and an interpretation.
7) many will share a revelation or a prayer as Holy Spirit leads you.
8) we will eat until we are satisfied and all will go home edified.
9) our GOD REIGNS SUPREME and we will sing together lifting His name on HIGH.
10) we have much to be thankful for and give thanks for the great praise reports.

We are in a new season and we have a few changes. We continue to meet in homes instead of The Troutdale House for the time being. Laura and Martin can't keep our time slot open when they have paying customers so we are blessed when they have bookings. (BTW Whenever I say their names I'm reminded of the old comedy show Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. Sock it to me! Ha!)

We are so honored to host Worship at the River at our house on Sunday July 13th starting at 4 PM with a potluck dinner. It is not necessary but if you have sports chairs please bring them. Here is our address and directions to our home:
43547 SE Trout Creek RoadCorbett, OR 97019
Go East on Stark street to the end (over the Stark Street bridge) Turn right. Go past Dabney State Park, through Springdale (past the Big Bear market and Historical Springdale Tavern)
Stay right onto Hurlburt Road. Proceed on Hurlburt Road to the blinking red light at the intersection of Evans Road, Hurlburt Road and Gordon Creek Road.
Stay right at the blinking red light. Proceed on Gordon Creek Road (you will overlook the Sandy River, go up a steep switchback) until you come to Trout Creek Road on the left.
Turn left onto Trout Creek Road. Proceed 3 miles. You will see a green 3 mile marker on the right side of the road. Our driveway is just past the 3 mile marker on the left side of the road.
I will have a sign and balloons at the driveway. Proceed down the dusty trail until you come to the first house which is our log house. You've made it!!!
Another way you can come is to take I-84 East to Exit 22 (Corbett). Drive to the top of Corbett Hill and stay right. Take a quick left onto Evans road. Proceed on Evans Road until you come to the blinking red light at the intersection of Evans Road, Hurlburt, and Gordon Creek Road. Proceed straight across and it becomes Gordon Creek Road. Proceed until you come to Trout Creek Road. Turn left. Proceed 3 miles and turn into our driveway on the left side of the road. Either way, if you come to Trout Creek Bible Camp, you have just past Trout Creek Road.
Looking forward to seeing who will venture out this far!!
