Yeah, I had hoped not to miss this many days in posting but things have been extremely busy. So this post will probably not contain any deep thoughts on doctrinal issues.
Last night my two brothers and I had a surprise dinner for our father's birthday. We got together at my brothers house where he had cooked an excellent dinner (steak) and then sat around in the evening and simply fellowshipped in the Word and discussed various things. That was probably one of the first times we have really spent a few hours together without the distractions of background noise etc. Our wives took all of the 11 grandchildren over to my parents house and just hung out together. Wow! What a blessing to have wives that are willing to take their lives and invest them into their children and families, I think they were a bit tired though by the time we got back. :)
If your parents are still alive, I would encourage you to spend those times of one on one or with your fellow siblings together just simply sitting around and talking. In our fast paced culture we miss out on many of the simple pleasures of life by just being in such a rush all the time.
I will leave this verse with you today, "Be still and know that I am God".
