Back to the real world

Holidays are over and things are back in full force. Youth wad good
last night. There was a small crowd, but I encouraged them to make the
greatest commandment their new year resolution: "love the lord your
God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.

I was back in the office today and got a good bit done. I brainstormed
about our education and children's ministry. Also talked with my
cousin about possible mission trips.

I play in a men's league basketball game tomorrow night and I am pumped.

The New Year

We had a great time with our "family" visitors over Christmas and the New Year. They left on New Year's Day and then we had some more visitors show up. Sara and Linsday from GGBTS were driving back from OK/TX to SF and they stayed a night with us. Fun times!!!

However, I ended up getting sick in the middle of the night and have felt bad ever since. I even stayed home from "work" today to just get a little extra rest so I would be ready for youth group tonight. Third day of the year = Sick day #1.

I managed to push through our Saturday night service last night. I felt bad the whole time, but it was still a great service. It was a great time of worship. It has been a little frustrating that we see no community people. I feel that I am out and about building trust and relationships with the lost of Boulder City, but still none want to experience Jesus. I am trusting that God will draw them toward Him.

I am using the Logos iPhone app frequently and I am committed to reading the Bible all the way through this year. Everytime I read it gets better. It truly is the Living Word.

I start Tuesday playing in a men's basketball league. I hope to be able to keep up with the college kids that asked me to play with them. At least they asked me to play. We should be good!

A lot of things are happening this year. The biggest is baby #4 coming in May.

This has not been a philosophical or theological blog, but I am getting started for the year. Stay tuned for more to come.
