It snowing again! Looks like we’re getting about like 8-10 inches today! I personally love the snow… just not too thrilled about the timing of all these recent snow storms. They keep falling on weekends… and that kills church attendance. Grrrrr.
If you’re looking for something to do… read my snow day blog: 10 Innovative Things 2 Do On A Snow Day!
Yesterday, was fun! I wrote from about 4:30am until 10am. Then at 11am, I had a scheduled meeting with our amazing youth pastor, Nathan Bain… and instead of meeting in the office, we drove to Richmond together, had lunch @ the Strawberry Street Cafe with the other half of my family, and had a very productive 4 hour youth ministry meeting!
Then last night, Heaven and I played two volleyball games at the church league! I found out my sister Helen Reese just got a new and FAR better job working 4 days a week, no weekends… she’s gonna get the perfect church attendance award from now on! Oh, and some VERY kind fellow randomly handed me $200! What a perfect day!
Thinking about tomorrow morning… praying the snow doesn’t keep too many people away from Destiny Family Center! Church has been amazing since our 7 year anniversary at the end of August… every single service and everything outside of services… the UNITY, and SMILES, and REVELATION of Gods Word, and the preciousness of Gods TANGIBLE presence… beyond words!
I know that sound awful preachy, but there’s just no better way to describe it… VERY RELATIONAL, VERY SPIRITUAL, VERY FUN, VERY FRUITFUL!
We’re all loving this LONG LASTING wave of momentum! Then, last Sunday was the service BEYOND WORDS… and Wednesday nights dinner and groups was BEYOND WORDS too! Something like 28 people have come to Christ since January 1st @ DFC! Thats almost a person a DAY! I love my church!!
I Miss My Family!
One final word on todays journal… I really miss my wife and son! (frowny face and watery eyes)
Coree, I miss all the laughter you bring to my life! I miss the irritation of having to share my computer with you! I miss talking to you about girls! I miss the calm you create in my world! I miss you telling me how I’m the best dad in the whole wide world! I miss that kiss you give me on the cheek every night before you go upstairs to bed! LOL just kidding! haha!
Emily, please wrap up all that work in Richmond… and bring your mom to live here in these beautiful mountains! I’m lost without you Emily! I’m just walking around in circles in the middle of the family room… the family room without a family! Heaven won’t help me clean… grrrr! And it’s a snow day… I always make you hot chocolate on snow days! My whole life is meaningless without your happy face! You’re my best friend! My dear dear Emily… please return to me, my love! (smiling with one eye winked)
Absence does make the heart grow fond… and I am FOND! See if you recognize this tune… thought it might help you remember your dear old Charlie!
Ps: I even miss Ming Mi and Chica (not as much as Ming Mi)… but I don’t miss walking them in the mornings yet! In fact, I still pretty much hate that! Emily, please give the gals a kiss on their furry little heads from DAD this morning! (cheese smile)
