This past week was a whirlwind. It WASN'T busier than usual, per se, but it felt heavier, out of control. Yet, I know it was perfectly in control. Anyway - I didn't blog so it's time to do a catch-up blog.
Much of this week was spent interceding for a local church body, their pastor and staff. I found myself reflecting on what makes a man great and what sort of legacy I want to leave. This quote was meaningful to me this week.
"Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ and expect great things!" Andrew Murray
In the end, the answer was not what I desired. Pastor John is with Jesus - and that is good. Many are broken hearted in our community - that is hard. We continue to contemplate and pray. It was a week of journaling thoughts, memories, prayers and promises.
Hmm....along the way we discovered maybe the kids needed a bit more oversight yesterday at the potluck in our home. ::snort:: I wonder how many of them attempted to walk the plank into the abyss. No one was hurt.

Stacia came home and stayed with GG, Allie went to work, and Michael, and I enjoyed dinner with Aaron and Elise, a young family we used to spend much more time with...it was fantastic. Cute kids, great food, fun conversation.
Oh yes, sometime on Saturday I made a broccoli salad, a "San Francisco Bar" and a bowl of watermelon/berries and feta for Sunday's church potluck.
And just like that the week was over and another was beginning.
