Sunday Night Reflections....

1. Awesome day today!

2. Fourteen first-time visiting families!

3. Received a SPECIAL OFFERING for our new church sign – glad to say the money came in to cover the cost. We will post the exact amount received in next weeks bulletin.

4. Last Sunday was very hard physically – I was running on empty. But I had my voice back today and it felt good to preach with strength in my body.

5. This week is going to be a very busy week for me. But I’m loving it and I’m ready to grab the bull by the horns.

6. The last four weeks have been very busy too. We’ve had four deaths, and four funerals in four straight weeks. Our prayers have been with these families.

7. Concluded the series from Philippians today. An eleven-part series. It has been one of the more fruitful message series I have done in a long while.

8. I love what I do.

9. Have you noticed how GOOD our CAMPUS GROUNDS look?

10. We have lot of hurting people in our church family right now. But I’m glad that we (i.e., all of us) can be there for them.

11. I told my wife I was going to get a TATTOO. She said no.

12. I love spring time and early summer. It’s great to get outdoors.

13. I’m going to take a hard run tomorrow morning. Trying to get rid of this “MUFFIN TOP” – if you know what mean.

14. The amount of new people in our church right now is simply INSANE. The wonderful thing about people is God is keeps making more of them.

15. Keep checking in this week – now that I’m recovered from my flu I’m ready to start writing again. And man, I am going to burn up the keyboard this week!
