23 Jun Good Weekend
I really appreciated this weekend! Lots of BBQ’n, which I just love to do.
Friday night, I visited a man from church in the hospital. He survived a procedure this week that he wasn’t sure he would make it through. We had the most amazing visit as he openly shared with me some pretty deep things he’s been through and some of the stuff he’s done. This is a man rescued by Jesus from the brink. He became for me a huge example of someone who is “poor in spirit”, the very message I was working on for this weekend.
Saturday, I hit the day hard, churning out the majority of today’s message. Started a new series that I’ve been thinking about for a while, but just decided to start in the last couple days of the week. “Becoming All That You Can Be” from Matthew 5:1-10, the Beatitudes. Challenging stuff, but good, deep.
Last night, q’d some really nice ribeyes and had my sister and her husband and kids over for her birthday. Colleen and the boys saw “Get Smart” late in the afternoon with a family friend, who also joined us for dinner on the spur of the moment. By the end of the evening, I was whipped. A good whipped, but really tired.
This morning, church went great at both services. The message was hard, but received well. Had visitors at church today that had been part of our church some time ago, so it was just heart-warming to see old friends and hear their remarks about how we’re missed. Cool thing!
Then, this afternoon, I spent some time watching golf with Colleen, who is the greatest woman in all the world, in my book! Later in the afternoon, I headed to Fry’s Electronics to see if they had a replacement power supply for the family desktop computer. They did, I put it in, and the computer works!
I love fix-it projects and all, but it seems lately that whenever I have a project to do, it’s extremely frustrating and filled with multiple return trips to the store! This one worked, and that felt good! Q’d some beef ribs for dinner, but overdid them! Peanut butter and jelly for dinner as Colleen and a friend were canning plums for plum jam from our tree in the backyard. Just felt like the Walton’s around here. It was cool!
As far as Josh’s leg, it seems we’ll call the doctor tomorrow and get the ball rolling to set up surgery. It’s not that Josh is looking forward to it, but the way he put it is that he “wants to do whatever is best.” And, he doesn’t want to go to school with a cast. We’ll keep you posted on the schedule.
‘Nite for now…..
