We didn’t start the fire. It was always burning since the world’s been turning.

In case you have not heard, I finally got a firewood rack for the back patio.  It came yesterday evening, and I put it together and Kim and I filled it up.  I really like it.  It came with a cover that fits it perfectly, and it looks really nice and neat on the patio.  It will really be nice to have all of the wood up off the ground and away from the side of the house.  All but a few fires worth of wood fit on it, so we still have a little pile of wood on the ground.  But that is okay, I guess.  I am just really glad that all of our firewood is in one location that is up off the ground and away from the house.  It looks really neat and clean.  I am so ready for some fireplace weather.  I love the fall.  It is my favorite time of the year for weather.

Today is also a happy day, because my best friend David got engaged this morning.  I am so happy for him and Katy.  I really look forward to his wedding and being a part of their new life together.  I wish them all the best for sure.

I hope that everyone has a great rest of the day, and enjoy some time in corporate worship tomorrow.

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.
