This weekend has been an absolutely AWESOME weekend. I wish I could share all of the details, but I am just really excited about where God has us right now.
Well, Friday was a work day and it was kind of a long day. So when I was able to head home for the weekend, I was just really looking forward to relaxing just a half a bit. By the time I got home, all I wanted to do was just roll around in the floor with the kids and love on my lovely. We just relax a little while and all cuddle up and watch a Christmas movie. And after a couple of phone calls, my weekend gets put on a level of relaxing that I have not had in a while.
Saturdays (as much as possible) is Pancakes and Pop-Pop. That consists of letting my wife sleep in a bit and I get the kids up and make pancakes for them. Complete with running commentary and various voices and made up languages as I pour each one in the pan, flip, and then plate. (The kids love it. That’s why I do it.) Well, I got a call of a gift. A relative of ours had too much furniture and was ready to give away a slightly used recliner. ON IT!!! Went and picked it up and delivered it home. (Wifey gives it 2 thumbs up.) After a little bit we get out for a little while (much needed) and head to the Pretty Things store. (Old Time Pottery) And within a few quick stops and a total of about 5 hours out of the house, we head back. After the kids go down for the night, I get the guitar out to practice for playing along side a couple of good friends this morning at Beacon UMC.
Leading worship today was wonderful. It as just nice to hear harmonies of good friends that know you and the part that you sing. Within a few minutes, we were harmonizing like we did 8 years ago. (Well, less actually, but we were the most close-knit 8 years ago…I think.)
Today has just been an amazing gust of fresh air. I am still extremely busy and will still be under a good bit of stress over the next four weeks with school, but today was a nice little reminder that God is faithful and in control.
I am looking forward to next Sunday as I will have another opportunity to help lead again. I am thankful for God’s gifting and His timing even though I do not understand it.
