weekend in review: July! – awesome! This weekend I celebrated 10 years of being married to the indescribable Heather!! What a wild trip it has been – who would have thought we’d be where we are, doing what we do, with 2 amazing kids – our lives continue to be a testament to God’s provision and grace, which is exactly what we pray.
We also spent time with family this weekend, and with awesome friends – in a neighborhood where fireworks are taken very seriously! I’ve been and am currently sick because of what went around on the missions trip so I was a little fuzzy the whole weekend, but I do remember the fireworks landing on me!!
Probably the other best highlight of my weekend was playing catch with LJ. He’s gotten ahold of his uncle Chris’ old kids-sized baseball glove and we played catch with a regular hard baseball. It was like I was re-living memories with my Dad – what an awesome privilege to be a dad – I love every moment of it!
on my list this week: I am now solely focused on planting the Grove, so I have a “to-do” list of 21 things I wrote up this morning. When I get those done, I am going to catch up on reading through the Bible. I’ve not been on track with that lately.
current books: I’ve finished 3 books that I need to blog out. Right now I am only reading Leonard Sweet’s book on friendships called 11. It’s nice.
current writing: lots of little things, nothing too big.
culture that’s caught me: I got my GQ mag in the mail this past week and I was beside myself with embarrasment because they put that Sasha Baron Cohen buy on the front naked and hadseveral pages dedicated to advice from him. It was a total sell-out. I get GQ because I really enjoy fashion and this was just stupid. It’s time to renew my subscription and I’m not gonna bother. Losers.
how i’m feeling about this week: Awesome. I get to play softball tonight!
quote for the week: “So what is the Grove?” ~ by about 100 people on Saturday morning!!
running report: I haven’t ran in a month. Having an exercise habit when running a youth ministry and planting a church is difficult. I will have to be more intentional.
