Sunday Mind Dump - September 11, 2011

Just a good day at PCC.

Still flying high from all the good things happening at our church.

I really liked the new stage design.  It looks good. 

Today was 9/11.  It’s hard to believe that it has been ten years.

I vividly remember what I was doing when I watched the second plane crash into the second tower…. live.

I have mixed emotions about churches making their entire service today about 9/11, because Jesus is supposed to have preeminence in all things.  But we did take a few minutes in today’s service to talk about the events of the day, what a defining moment it was for our country, the horror of it all, and to acknowledge our gratitude for those who defend our liberty.

There will be no peace on earth until the Prince of Peace returns and rules the nations with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:27).  Then we will study war no more (Isaiah 2:4).

Until then, I thank God for our national defense.

I’m loving the fall weather.  I think it’s supposed to warm up a little this week, but at least it won’t be in the upper 90s or over 100.

Yesterday I drove up into the country with my mother to visit relatives.  We had a good time.  It’s very relaxing to be in the country… especially in the morning when the air is cool.  We had a country feast for lunch… all home-grown from their garden. 

There’s something about living a simpler life that appeals to me.

My land-clearing project is finally completed.  Now to get started on planting grass.  This property is beautiful with lots of oak trees.

I’ve got some Muscadine and Scuppernong vines that I want to plant too.  (:-)

I close with two proverbs of wisdom….. 

(1)  A life vest protects you from drowning. A bullet proof vest protects from bullets. A sweater vest protects you from ever getting a date.

(2)  A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth your while.
