Sunday with Jared
Happy to have this young man home this Sunday!
We attended the 0800 service. This service will be combining with the 1100 service as of next Sunday to become the "New Traditional Service." It was one of those "glorious sorrows" to sit in the service and consider the blessed community it has provided and to realize that many of these dear families are also pcsing this summer.
After the service, Michael did "chaplain stuff" and the kids and I headed for Cinnabon. They were THRILLED that I messed up their order.....I ordered a "normal" for each of the kids as a treat....but um....I thought the normal is what is really the "mini" - so the mini I usually buys them turns out to be the "bite".....ah well....they needed to be sugared up for this day! This was a good time for Jared to touch base with the J family and we enjoyed visiting together in the breathing space between services.
A funny....Zander confided to Steve (Mr. J) that he was a bit surprised Jared was wearing a pink shirt. ::snort:: Steve assured him he wouldn't wear pink either but it looks rather nice on Jared.
Michael preached on holiness in the 1100 and 1735 services. All of us were at 1100. Jared and I went with Michael to the 1735 service. Good thoughts to contemplate this week....good times visiting a variety of friends in all the services.
I don't think we could have made Sunday any fuller for Jared. It will be his only chance to attend chapel so it's nice it worked out he could see it all in one week. He flies next Sunday a.m.
We DID fit lunch and ice cream (and cashew cream for Arielle and me) into the day somewhere.
Living all of life before the face of God...
