Hello dear friends,
I hope all is well with all of you and everyone in your sphere of relationships. The last couple of weeks I have been "laying low", I had a minor surgery near my tail bone. I am doing okay, not yet back to work, but for the first time I am able to sit at the computer and write this post. The weather here in Oregon has been amazing, really like summer in a lot of ways, which was hard since I could not "do" anything these last couple of weeks. I spent my time watching movies, sleeping, writing, in the Word, and reading a book called "Velvet Elvis", by Rob Bell. I recommend that book to anyone and EVERYONE! It is a revolutionizing book! It is not just a book to read, it is a book to study and get in to, to go deep, be challenged, think, and to do something ... That is what this book did for me. The words really jumped off the page and spoke to me. Now what I don't want you to get from this is that I have replaced it with the Bible or comparing it to the Bible either. It is in it's own section of books. The Bible will always be #1 and the best book anyone could read. Okay, now that I have clarified that, go read them both. :)
I am looking forward to going back to work. The time off has been nice at times, but I really enjoy my job and I am a person who likes to keep busy and keep moving.
We as family have also been planning Jenell's wedding and getting prepared for that. FUN stuff, but weird at times to think that my little sis is getting married.
SFC Oregon is in the planning stages again for the summer, and will start back up again when the snow falls. I am looking forward to going full force next season. PLEASE Pray for us!
Another aspect of prayer for me is how I should be involved with the college group this next year. I am meeting with two of my leaders on Tuesday. Please pray for wisdom and direction.
I would also like to go back to school within the next year, SO that means $$$$, yep, so I need lot's of prayer for wisdom and direction on which school, what classes, and where to get the $CASH$. :)
Can I just say that each of you mean so much to me and I look forward to each time I get to see you. I was reminded this weekend that we were made to be with people, and being alone is not fun. I know that sometimes it is good, BUT for the most part we are to be glorifying God and fellowshipping with others.
Well, I would really like to hear from you. So write a post or send me an e-mail.
