monday in indy

Well, I'm only blogging today because it's fun and not work. Sara and I are on a short two day vacation in Indianapolis (my home town and favorite place in the world). It's really about sitting on the monument circle and watching people, grabbing a starbucks and some candy from my favorite store just off the circle, walking on the canal with the love of my life (which you knew if you were at the couple's retreat in Galena last weekend with 75 other couples) - o.k. skip to the retreat. It was great to hang out with couples that have been at Eastview forever (37 plus years) and some who have just joined, some newlyweds (2 months) and some oldyweds (over 50 years) and some who were just looking to get away and make some friends. Whether it was strolling around Galena or balloon rides (mark and rachel warren took a dip in the lake - ask them about it), or eating or just hanging out at the main house (think huge mansion place with tons of activities and fireplaces - and an outdoor firepit in which i stoked a fire of amazing proportions), every couple had a great time. We had two worship times and an early morning Bible study through Philemon which I taught at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. After preaching three times in Galena and then twice on Sunday, I was ready for a break, but praising God for all the blessings of our family at Eastview. Hope your monday is as laid back as mine, but I'll bet it's not.

Glad you're enjoying a relaxing day in Indy. You deserve it. But wish we were with you.

We love you and Sara! Enjoy the rest of your mini vacation.

Ohhh, I love me some Philemon. Seriously though, I love that little book. Wish I could hear what you said.
