Youth Service...

This past Sunday we had a youth service, and again I was so proud of the youth and my sponsors, as they spoke, sang, played instruments, acted, served, did dishes and set up and cleaned up.  It was wonderful seeing them pursue community, sharing loving and giving of themselves.  I am constantly amazed at the awesome things God is doing in our little community.  

Of course the smart thing that should have been done is the youth-pastor who loves these youth and was absolutely beaming seeing them do the service should have brought a camera and taken some memory moments with a few clicks to show others and to remember, but this same youth-pastor forgot!! Sigh...

So I am bringing you the next best thing, and that is the glory of internet, which is a gadget in which you type in your weight pick a caffeinated drink that you partake in regularly and find out how many of them would it take to kill you ... apparently it is 371.91 cans of Coca-Cola Classic + You/me (in this case) = Death.  I am assuming this is in one sitting of drinking them... cause I think I had that many this weekend.  umm not sure what to say about that other then there you have it interweb has this gadget, enjoy if your really interested.

Celebration in our community...

This past Sunday we had a wonderful celebration in our community!  We had the joy and privilege to hear six youth  and one adult share their faith journeys, joys and struggles, then as a community we spoke into their lives and affirmed their decisions to be baptized.  I had the specific joy of leading Faith Walk classes with the youth and then had the privilege of baptizing them! What an awesome day! Here are some photos (unfortunately Katelyn's photo is blurry) :

Great Quote....

"The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now"

True love...


Earlier I had written about my sons "friendship" with a girl in his kindergarden class and their plans to get married and live in my basement, they are of course 5 years old.  Well apparently this is not that out to lunch according to this news story from BBC, where a  6 yr. old  and a 5 yr. old packed, made plans and went to the airport to get married in Africa.  Why Africa well because its nice and warm there. they even planned for a witness to come along a 7 yr. old sister.  Awesome!!  Read the story here very funny!
