Well, I turned 48 yesterday. I got a pillow, some sour candy, and we had stewed tomatoes and rice, peas, and smoked sausage for dinner after church, and I'm completely happy about all of those things! Suzanne would say my new tires also count towards my birthday.....and Christmas....Valentine's day and so on, you get the point. So put tires on that list.
My point in this is "my how things have changed!" Things change with age right? I'm not even talking about the physical things, but rather the mindset or perspective. I would have been fine with the sour candy at age 12 but a little dismayed with any of the rest. You know what I didn't wake up expecting yesterday morning? A trip with a few friends to the Double Dip Depot for some Ice Cream and Presents. Better yet, a fantastic night out to the Showbiz Pizza Place. I forgive you and understand if you're not familiar with either place. One was local and the other has since given way to the Chuck E Cheeses of the world. But never fear, you can click here for a blast back to the past. I wasn't expecting anything when I woke up yesterday, just simply thankful for another day. I was thankful for the meal, the pillow, the time in the Word with students and leaders who I love. But again, this would not always have been the case. My perspective has changed. Time, maturity and the grace of God has a way of changing you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes, not expected but appreciated! I'm thankful for another year and also thankful the Showbiz Pizza Place didn't scar me for life.
Events & Requests
Here's what's coming up over the next few weeks along with some opportunity to serve.
High School Refuel
We are planned and ready for Refuel. We've shared with you our schedule and changes but wanted to share that again, along with some other details.
If you have any questions please email or text Chris/Andrew.
Though we hate to have to change up Refuel, we're thankful this option is available.
We continued our Jesus is Greater series last night by seeing how Jesus is Greater than the Angels. That may sound a little stranger, considering our knowledge of Angels. So, how does this part of Hebrews help us in this life? Great question, part of the answer is below. I've attached both the sermon notes and video below. Enjoy, engage and apply!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
