Tuesday's Two-Cents

thoughts about the past week(end) ~ more house stuff - negotiations etc. Friday we had the inspection, then headed to Omaha to do some more "window" shopping for a kitchen table and other "want items." Sunday was full with worship, TEC reunion, WAVE and then getting sick. I've felt crappy since 11:50pm on Sunday. On the upswing now though!

this weeks to dos ~ work - several meetings. packing for the move and waiting to hear back on the negotiations.

thoughts on the coming week ~ it's gonna be a bit busy!

Tuesday's Two-Cents

thoughts about the past week(end) ~ it was busy! Friday we finally reached an agreement on a sale price for the house we wanted - so assuming all goes well we'll be closing by about the third week in April & moving then too. So, that being said, Saturday was spent getting some shopping (or as Nick would say hunting) done - we didn't really buy anything - just searched for some things that we now and some that we think we will need once we get closer to moving. Sunday was great - I had the chance to have lunch with a great family from church, I'm still wondering what Brad wrote on the paper he ate?!?! Then it was off to a leaders meeting and then WAVE. All in all, I'd say a pretty productive week(end)

this weeks to-dos ~ well, it's gonna be hectic - LPS is on Spring Break, which typically means my work week gets to be a bit more fun. (a couple scheduled lunches, a movie, Laser Quest) plus planning for some upcoming events for the ministry. There is also a meeting with our banker, an inspection walk-thru and I'm sure other house/moving stuff that will come up.

book I'm reading ~ "No wonder they call Him The Savior" at least that's the one I'm hoping to get started on this week...

think about a thought ~ how are you doing this Lent? as the season of Lent began we talked about "adding something" and "giving something up" - so how is that going for you?

Scripture to skim ~ Jeremiah 1:4-10

Tuesday's Two-Cents

thoughts on the past week(end) ~ the past weekend was slightly relaxed - well Saturday was anyway - Stephanie and I had a low-key day, did some shopping with some money each of us received as birthday gifts, rented a movie and hung out at home in the evening. Sunday was a bit hectic, between worship, a meeting over lunch, looking at a few houses and then youth group - my day was spent.

this weeks to dos ~ well the house hunt continues - I think we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've got a few meetings - planning type meetings for the missions camp, and a joint youth leader meeting too.

book i'm reading ~ starting a join-study on a book by Doug Fields "Refuel" (An Uncomplicated Guide to Connecting with God), and I'm going back to some of Yac's writings in "Getting Fired For The Glory Of God."

tunes that triggered ~ haven't listened much yet - but Jeremy Riddle has a new album out that I'm hoping to get my hands on - sounds like some good stuff.

Tuesday's Two-Cents

thoughts about this past week(end) ~ wow it was exhausting - but it was great...I had the opportunity to hang out, worship, laugh (a lot), think, plan, cry, and so much more with a bunch of youth and adults at a youth retreat weekend. although I didn't get much sleep - I'm now slightly caught up and glad I did it.

this weeks to dos ~ a small handful of meetings and prep for some ministry programs. catch up on some 'back work' and work on our summer missions camp. and we get to celebrate my beautiful wife's bday tonight!

tunes that triggered ~ well hmmm, Jesus Lives In The Sand...and anything else that got stuck in my head over the weekend.

thoughts about the coming week ~ I'm excited for Steph's bday today - we're going out for dinner and I can't wait for her to see what I got for her. I'm also hoping we can get back to the house-hunt....I hope to find something in the next week!

Scripture to skim ~ Romans 5

"Welcome to McDonalds, may I take your order?"

"Yes, I'd like a 10-piece McNugget."

...next the customer pays, is told they are out of the McNuggets and she calls 911 3 times...

Tuesday's Two-Cents

thoughts about the past week(end) ~ the last week seemed to fly by...Saturday we spent several hours again looking at houses - still nothing that seems to be working out...but we'll keep you posted. spent some time visiting in-laws Sat evening. Sunday was a blur - from worship, to TEC training to Winter Jam - a long and full day!

this weeks to dos ~ the list seems long...a handful of meetings to prepare for and attend, program planning to be done by Thursday morning, lots of reading and writing that HAS to be done before the weekend. Also helping lead a youth-conference/retreat this weekend - which starts Thursday afternoon.

book I'm reading ~ this weeks it's just my Lent devo and the Bible!

thoughts on the coming week ~ it's gonna be busy - but I'm really looking forward to it!

Scripture to skim ~ Matthew 6:25-33
