Another great Sunday! It seems like we get to say that every week at Northwood. While there were a lot of challenges to my day, it still turned out to be a pretty amazing day of God’s presence and power! Here are a few of the highlights!
*Woke up after an up and down night with my ten-year old. Discovered after Joy took her to the doctor today that she has another bad ear infection (she was just treated three weeks ago for the same thing). She has started a round of omnicef which is supposed to do the trick!
*The real bummer is that as we start a lot of our Christmas traditions as a church, my family had to miss it today and tonight. When you have been pastoring the same church for over ten years, church and family are interwoven in ways that are hard to imagine. Really missed my physical family being with our spiritual family in this beginning of the Christmas Season for Northwood!
*Thankful for my spiritual family and really enjoyed our time together. Glad that God has blessed us with some very special traditions and had some fun today looking back through the years and thinking about how God has grown us in so many ways!
*Talked about the wonderful gift of HOPE this morning in Worship! As our Hope Jesus should challenge and change our lives! I hope to share a little more on this tomorrow in my blog post!
*Had fun tonight with our simple, but sweet “Triming The Trees” Service! Love the family atmosphere and think that we are blessed to be a church that has active and sometime rambunctious kids! (Remember they are just like their parents!)
*Enjoyed the fellowship and really felt blessed to have someone bring me a plate already prepared and then to be served a diet Pepsi by a couple of my brothers in Christ!
*It’s been a challenging, but good day! Looking forward to another amazing week of ministry for God’s glory!
I love you all and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family!
