At the request of the Elders of Crestview, I was encouraged to get some time away with Meghan without children (although we brought Micah with us since he’s nursing) and we were gone this weekend. We went to Grand Lake, OK and had some great time relaxing, laughing, living unhurried and talking through our current life situation. It was refreshing, even though it was a short window.
There are numerous people who helped back home. Grandparents watched the boys, a family in the church watched Lauren, people covered my duties at church and Mickey Zimmerman filled the pulpit for me, preaching Ephesians 2:1-10 on one of his favorite passages. The audio of the sermon, which I entitled My Favorite Passage for him, is online. He had some great applications at the end on how the Gospel of grace silences and moves us to action.
We’re coming off a great weekend, then. I hope it was encouraging for you.
