I read Psalms 67-68 aloud and finished “Discovering Community” by Stephen Doughty. I would highly recommend this book as I have learned a good deal from it and get the feeling I will continue to grow as a result of encountering it.
We got snow last night and it is beautiful. Beauty is definitely a blessing. I seek to be more aware of God’s blessings today. I also need extra grace in speaking only what will build others up in Christ as my thoughts have been more critical. I also ask continued prayer for my wife as she has her new doctor Tuesday and for me as I have been somewhat restless and unsettled lately. We both need peace and stillness.
Jim – How about that arm band? I am built up by your dedication in seeking the mind of Christ. Good luck at the coffee shop.
Kevin – Have a safe travel weekend. Your last two sermons were great. I pray you can finally kick your illness and for your family as you prepare for a new baby.
Jay and Calvin – We have not heard from you regularly for a week or so. We miss you and hope you are continuing to be faithful with your devotions. I am praying for you both each day. Speaking the truth in love is tough, please do not feel like I am nagging you.
