Like all the rest of you, this is a very busy week. Plus, I have a wedding on Saturday but I'm excited about this couple. They went through the entire counseling process and have really worked hard on making sure that this was going to work for them. I have a good feeling about this.
As a gift to the church, they are taking down some of the old lights and replacing them with track lights. The old lights attracted crickets like mad, and it was horrible trying to keep them cleaned out so that they wouldn't be a distraction during worship. Allelluia, they are now gone.
My sermon yesterday went much better than I thought it would. I tried an entirely new thing for me. I just took my Bible and preached on Psalm 139....without an outline.....without a written manuscript....a major leap of faith for me (of course, I put many more hours in it than I would have if I had written it). And one of my harshest critics, complimented me. Hmmmm......felt good.
