The Lord's Day

In some ways, today was much like every other Sunday at our house. We struggle to get everyone awake, dressed, and out the door to church. In other ways, every Sunday is a new experience worshipping in God's House with God's people. It is always exciting to see what God is going to do. This morning, we accepted a new member into our fellowship! We also got to pray for and with a man and his family who are experiencing very hard times. Oh, and the preaching was good, too (and I'm not just saying that because I'm married to the preacher). Hubby is preaching a series of messages about the final days before Christ's return. We should all feel an urgency to pray for unbelievers and share the Gospel with them.

On a "worldly" level, it was a cold, rainy day in our neck of the woods. After coming home from church, it was nice to change into some comfy clothes, eat lunch, and take a nap before venturing out for evening services.

K. is excited because she will attend her first Girl Scout meeting tomorrow! The troop is a small one, comprised of homeschooled girls, so we feel that it will be a good "fit" for her (and everyone knows that homeschooled kids need socialization). That comment about socialization is one that brings a chuckle to most homeschoolers--our kids get plenty of socialization. In fact, like most families, we're busy and sometimes we have to guard against too much socialization!

I hope everyone has a terrific week!
Later Days!

Glad you finally were able to hear a good message. (wink) It's wonderful to hear about the new member; God is growing His family.

We had good messages yesterday, too. God is at work in our fellowship.
