It’s late and I’m beat, so a brief little updater and quick thoughts on the Wednesday service.
On the good side of the equation, it was an Aimee Beard night of praise & worship. Hustling up a good seat was definitely a priority and it paid benefits. On the other hand, it didn’t go unnoticed that the entire ensemble was wearing burnt orange in honor of the University of Texas playing this night. As one of those who just grew up to loathe UT when it comes to sports, I had to root for USC, though. Still, ya gotta know when you’re surrounded.
The lesson, I can’t do justice to yet. The notes are online here. There’s a part of Lisa’s message that I’ll want to review to see if she just went off on something of a tangent or what happened. But whatever the reason, the last point gets bumped to the next lesson in this series as Lisa got going on her children for a while. Great story and I think she made an excellent point by offering her story of difficulty in having children leading to her and Kevin adopting 3 beautiful kids as an example of God answering prayers from our darkest hours.
I did manage to go ahead and pick up “Spiritual Classics” for some not-entirely-light reading. It’s got a sort of textbooky vibe to it that I think I’m one of about 10 people in the world that think that’s a good thing. Plus it’s a good compilation of a wide array of historical work that just appeals to me right now (maybe because I’m also shopping for a copy of Dante’s “Inferno”). Still leaning towards picking up Beth Moore’s “Believing God” later in the month, as well. Finally. It’s been a good month, so I’m going nuts with stocking the personal library.
