Yesterday (Sunday) was anything but normal. I woke up at 3:00 like I do every other Sunday morning. Made my way to the office and began studying. After about 15 minutes, pitch black. All power went out. Computer. Gone. Lights. Gone. Studying. No way. Seeing my way around. Tricky. I used my phone to get around until I could get to my car and find a key fob that had a light to use. Hey, what can I say? I am a real high tech genius. So I made my way home, but not before heading to the church building we are currently using while ours is being renovated. Two words: pitch black. So I began running through the scenario of “unplugged.” Long story short, I decided to come back to the office after it got light and found the power had come back on after about an hour. (Our house is with a different company). The afternoon was spent working…moving, lifting, sanding, as we continue preparing for our move back into our own building. I finally went home at 7:00, deciding to leave some things (like this blog) undone. But my day did end rather well with a small bowl of ice cream and the good news the Pirates had finally beaten the Reds.
Since I have a thousand and one things to do, and don’t really feel like thinking all that much (which does not bode well for sermon prep time), I thought I would highlight some blogs I read lately.
FROM THE “LAUGH YOUR HEAD OFF” VIEW: I have stayed out of the Chick-Fil-A fiasco on purpose. This has nothing to do with it, except a song parody. Enjoy. http://www.christiandroid.com/2012/08/god-bless-you-chick-fil-a.html While there, check out the rest of Sele’s blog.
FROM THE “I AM SO PROUD OF YOU” CORNER: If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you will see quite often a comment from Jan. She even wrote her story here. We have been through a lot as pastor and friend since we met in 1987. She and her (now) husband, Michael, have recently moved because of his job with CVS. Jan has been blogging for about 2 weeks or so at Uniquely Me. Do me a favor. Do her a favor. Check it out here.
FROM THE “HOW PRACTICAL IS THAT?” DEPARTMENT: I read the following verse this morning during my Encounter Time- “For jealousy makes a man furious, and he will not spare when he takes revenge.” That ’bout sums up the actions of jealousy in my book. Oh, that is from Proverbs 6:34
FROM THE “THIS GUY HAS THE FATHER’S HEART” CORNER: We have plans to meet some day when his son returns to college in Indiana. It can’t happen too soon for me. I am continually amazed at this man’s father/Father heart. See it here.
And finally…from the I HAVE SAID ENOUGH gallery: I hope you have a great day. I read tons of blogs every day. Far too many to highlight them all. Please don’t take offense if you are not here. Any you think I should have on my radar?
