...outside on Friday in Indianapolis (over there to get a way with Sara) that I spent a couple of hours sitting outside on the monument circle soaking up the sun (and all the people). I think I got a little sunburn!
...on Saturday that I finally took the outdoors Christmas lights down at my house. We were within a couple of months of just leaving them up for this upcoming Christmas.
...on Saturday that i got the motorcycle out of the garage and took sara for a ride. Nice to take a ride (a little chilly) around Lake Bloomington and see how the seasons are getting ready to change.
...to see so many respond to the invitation Sunday in second hour. To see so many tears of repentance and desire to pour everything out like the woman who poured out her perfume on Jesus' feet.
...to see 1400 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in our building over the weekend growing in their faith as we hosted "super start" by CIY. Very cool to feel the energy (and smell it).
...to see a bunch of kids parents dedicate to raise them in the word and the church. This continues to be a real joy to me to perform this child dedication four times a year.
...to make Matt laugh in first hour at my silly "aqua velva" joke. I sincerely caught him off guard and he was laughing (which makes me laugh too). I'm glad we have a church that is a genuinely fun place to be.
...see matt and nancy (workers in north africa) yesterday in our services. Good to catch up with them.
...to see that we are putting carpeting down in the balcony expansion project (four weeks from completion and it's really taking shape).
...to receive a $20,000 check from a group of good Christian brothers in town ("with no strings attached and to be used for hte ministry of Eastview as the leaders see fit")
...to get to another Monday prayer time with the staff and experience my co-workers pouring out their hearts to God on their knees. This continues to be one of my favorite times of the week.
...to run on the canal in Indy on Saturday capped by a quad grande americano at Starbucks.
