Since the last time I posted I have 1) gotten married 2) had jaw surgery 3) [&3a] made two trips to PA for my cousins weddings 4) made a trip to VA to move my sister back home and 5) done lots of house projects. Its was a crazy busy summer. I should also mention that one of my sisters got married inbetween the two trips to PA. Now things are starting to settle down and I can relax from the summer rush. I'm actually going to take my wife on a date tonight! Just the two of us....(busting into Will Smiths song)
I guess I don't ever get into to much detail. The last three months I just summarized in one little paragraph. How infuriating that would be to my wife if we were having a conversation. :)
I've always wanted a little bible. Not the new testament only, but just a smaller sized whole bible. Yesterday I did just that. I bought two. One for Allyson, and one for me. Also, they are in a different translation(NLT) than what I usually read(NIV). Now I can read through it and mark it all up! I'm actually looking forward to it.
Pastor Mike did a sermon series not too long ago about growing up spiritually; he started off every week with the quote "You can't put earthly things before spiritual things and expect to grow spiritually". So I can't watch tv instead of reading my bible and grow spiritually? It mostly speaks about intentionality. If you don't want to do it, then you won't, and you will live like it. But as the Lord works in my life and I learn new things, I want to live as intentionally as possible. So here's to a little less tv and a lot more bible. A little less sleep, and more God. A little less music and some more worship.
