Date Night

October 30, 2006

Macy started Awana on Monday nights…which means…HELLO DATE NIGHT!

Tonight we went to Road House  Roadhouselogo

Its a cool place to eat where you can throw peanuts on the ground.  I went with my beauty queen. Girls_044It was a good night…other than the fact I have bronchitis, and I am so weak I can barely get around.  Add to that that Allison still makes me weak in the knees…and that’s a bad combination.

boast

October 29, 2006

I want to love the Lord with all my heart, and most of the time feel like I’m nowhere close.

I want to cherish my wife and only speak words of love to her, and wonder if I’ll ever get that right.

I want to be a good dad and already see some of the ways I’m not. 

I want to be a source of encouragement in people’s lives around me but sometimes weeks go by before I remember that.

I want to be a man of discipline but still struggle with the easiest of disciplines.

The only thing that gives me hope is Christ.  I cannot imagine where I would be without Christ, without His hope.  Actually, in many ways I can imagine where I would be and it scares me to death.

Christ hasn’t given up on me.  Though so often I feel like maybe He should, He hasn’t.  And I’m grateful.  I would have given up on me a long time ago.  I can boast of nothing else in my life but the power and love of Jesus.

Sick

October 24, 2006

Head=bowling ball  Throat=thick and hostile    Body=weak and cold

The amazing thing is…I can still work!  Laptop Thanks to technology…I’m in my bed on my laptop, receiving a wireless signal, logged in remotely to Sunset’s network. Look how happy this guy looks.  That’s how happy I am, but I don’t look anything like him…I look….sick.   We have a great IT guy at our church, and he makes sure we’re up in running to be able to log in remotely.  Thanks Michael!

Random thoughts for this Tuesday-

*Being sick has it pro’s and con’s…but I’d take feeling great any day of the week.

*Life is fragile…my older brother almost died two days ago…be grateful for your life.

*Morning breath is worse when you’re sick, and can last well past morning.

*Eating right is dang hard.  Dang hard.

*Sleep is underrated.

Have a good Tuesday.

HOPE

October 20, 2006

Hope_2

If there was a billboard on my forehead that broadcast my current mood it would read: HOPEFUL.

God is in the business of restoring hope…and He’s been doing it with me personally big time.  The following are a few reasons why I am full of hope.

*My pastor Ron, has a renewed vision and passion for reaching the lost. 

*I have witnessed firsthand God orchestrate unity and teamwork among the “different ministries” at Sunset, and help us reveal that we are all one team with one mission, working together in our areas of calling.

*He is restoring my personal desire to be used as His witness.

*I am watching Him restore hope in others around me.

A good friend of mine often talks about the difference between fighting against something, vs fighting for something.  Right now, it feels like the church that I am blessed to be a part of is fighting for something, fighting for impact inside and outside of its walls, striving to be a church that pleases God and is inline with His purposes.  It is a good feeling, and it fills me with hope. 

Romans 15:13: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
