Ain’t no cure for the summertime blues…

I know it has been a while, but I had a really busy week last week.  This past Sunday I preached to the whole congregation.  It went really well.  The title of the sermon was “Are You Serving Leftovers to a Holy God?”  My text was Revelation 3:15-22.  I know, it was a bold text for my first sermon ever, but I wanted to share some things that God had been showing me recently.  Most of it was spurred on by the Crazy Love study that I have been doing with the youth.  God is worthy of the best we have to give Him, and yet so often we try to give Him our leftovers, spiritually, physically, and mentally.  This is an offense to God.  How arrogant of us to think that something on this earth is more important than the God of the universe.  It went really well though.  I was really nervous on Saturday, but on Sunday morning I was cool as a cucumber.  It was really neat, because it was like God was saying to me, “Hey I can get you through this.  Just trust in me and I will give you the words.”  I think that the message was received well.

I also write today to inform you few readers that it is now to the point that at any given moment S could be born.  Kim and I are really excited, and a little bit apprehensive.  I mean it is a huge step going from one kid to two kids.  I know that God will lead us through the adjustment process, though.  I am really looking forward to meeting the little girl that I am already madly in love with even though I have no idea what she looks like.

I am glad that it finally feels like summer, however, I really wish that I had a pool that I could go chill out in.  I don’t know why, but the past few days I have had an overwhelming desire to just go float in a pool and catch some sun rays.  I love swimming, and I really want to go play in the water with AG some time soon.  Alas, I do not know when that time will be.  I guess I will have to go cut the grass this afternoon, and then play in the water hose instead.
