I can’t help falling in love with you…

I am back in the office again, finally.  It has been a hectic past few weeks to say the least.  Three weeks ago was youth camp in Daytona, two weeks ago was VBS, and last week I was in class for seminary.  This past weekend was exactly what I needed.  A weekend with just me and Kim away for a couple of nights.  It was nice to have no agenda or plan for a few minutes.  I also love spending time with my wife.  I am so proud of her!  She graduated from Georgia Tech on Saturday morning with a Masters in Chemistry.  She has worked so incredibly hard, and I know of all the time she has put in.  I am just really proud of her.

We had a great weekend though.  We got to see my roommate from college get married in what was possible the most elaborate wedding I have ever been to.  It was amazing!  They got married on the front steps of her parents estate (yes, estate) in upstate North Carolina.  It was quite a sight to behold.  Absolutely beautiful, but crazy.  Then we spent a night in Pigeon Forge, TN just hanging out and enjoying being with each other.  Meemaw and Pawpaw kept the girls for us so that we could have some time together.  I just really love getting to spend time with my lovely wife.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love my kids to death, but when they are grown and gone I still want to have a relationship with my wife.  I have to nurture that relationship on a regular basis in order for it to be as healthy as possible.  I have to fall in love with her each day.  Not because I fall out each night, but because I want God to give me  new deeper love for her each day.

Now I am back in the office.  I am hoping that some youth show up to go bowling here in a few minutes, because we were supposed to go today.  However, not a single person had signed up on the sheet that I left behind for this Sunday.  Oh well.  I hope that everyone has a great day.

Back in the saddle again…

I am back in class for the first time since the beginning of May.  I feel like it has been forever since I did any school work.  I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive.  Youth camp did not kill me.  These past couple weeks have been a whirlwind.  With camp and VBS being back to back I am drained of energy right now.  Now I am in class, and it is tough to stay awake.  I love seminary classes, but I am just so tired right now.  I will let you know how the week goes.

This week is also very exciting for me.  Thursday is Kim’s and my fourth anniversary, Saturday AM kim is graduating from Georgia Tech, and Saturday PM my college roommate is getting married in NC.  It will be a busy week, but a very rewarding week.  I am also very excited about the fact that kim and I have felt led of God to sponser a child through Compassion International.  Through a great amount of prayer God has introduced us to a five year old little girl from Uganda named Lunkuse.  I know that God has placed a love in our hearts for her and her family.  I cannot wait to learn more about her and tell her about us.  I am really looking forward to being a part of helping Lunkuse and her family come to know Jesus.

I hope that everyone has a great rest of the day, and I will check in later on this week.
