Random Stuff

Home:
I was able to edge, weed-eat, and mow my lawn this weekend in 30 minutes. What a great contrast to our old house where the yard took about 1/2 of a day to complete. Sure, we have less yard to play in and look at, but we still have all that we really need, at least for now.

It's been really great having a couple of normal weekends to make some progress on home projects. Now that an extended weekend and holiday are coming up, I'll have to seriously resist the temptation to spend the majority of it getting more accomplished around the house (or should I?).

God:
Last week I participated in VBS (vacation Bible school) for the first time. As the team leader for four kids, it was both fun and tiring. The songs, Bible points (God is: real, with us, strong, awesome, and in charge), and the "YA-HOOO!" response will be stuck in my head probably for weeks, especially since we bought the DVD for Lucas to enjoy.

Our church worship has recently included a song called Bless His Name (link is to mp3), written by Tony Sanchez. I LOVE IT! It's loud and rockin', yet still beautiful and singable (that's an actual word) as worship. It sticks in your head and melts your brain toward God!

Our pastor mentioned in a sermon that all of the members of a men's prayer group that he is a part of are trying to spend 15 minutes each day with God. It was only a side note in the sermon, but it really stuck with me. That sounds so easy, but why is it so difficult? How many little things in my day take up 15 minutes? I'm planning on being part of a similar men's group starting up in August, so I guess I'll find out.

Relationships:
Amanda and I were blessed to have our friends Aaron and Eun (and their two boys) over for dinner on Sunday evening. I can't remember when we last had dinner guests, but it's been too long and I really enjoyed their company.

Misc:
Here is a website that makes me cringe and pray every time I read it.
