week to remember

It has certainly been a week to remember. It has been filled with ups and downs, joy and sadness, fear and elation. It was certainly a week that I will not soon forget.

It all began Tuesday night with the phone call to take care of Tracy’s dogs as she was in the hospital. All very exciting and she definitely had a baby girl on Wednesday afternoon. I spent the rest of the week at work figuring out the extra thing I have to do as well as doing those things that had to get done. Plans had been made out, but for Tracy to leave November 17th. It will all work out, but things are just a bit crazy at work right now.

On Thursday night, I got a phone call from Tracy’s husband Scott asking me if I would be willing to preach for him. I agreed, thinking that the rest of the weekend was going to be fairly easy and I would have plenty of time to write this sermon.

And then Friday morning I got the phone call that my good friend Billy had a heart attack. In utter shock, I went about my day in constant prayer, praying for Billy & his wife Tara. God definitely had a hand in the day on Friday, Billy is fine and will be fine, and I am continually grateful that I have him and Tara as friends here.

I spent Saturday helping with a baby shower that Tara was throwing, wrote the sermon in there and even made it through counterculture. Yesterday morning I preached, went and visited Billy again in the hospital and then this afternoon spent time hanging out with the youth. We went bowling last ngiht, and it was a great way for me to relax through the evening.

This week coming up is going to be busy as well. Getting my grip on the things I need to be doing as well as preparing for this coming Sunday are on the forefront of my mind. My good friend Jeremy will also be in town for Whitney and Jarrod’s wedding on Saturday. I will miss Daen and Gavin though, Jeremy’s wife and son. They can’t make it here for the wedding because of school obligations back in Ohio. I am so excited to see Jeremy and attend the wedding of two great friends here.

So this week will probably fly by, as well as the week’s following. It seems that up through Christmas it will just be swamped for me. Isn’t that always the truth in the life of the church though?

Ways you can join me in prayer:

Thanksgiving for Billy, continued prayers of healing for him as he continues to recover as well as for Tara.

For Saranam Sunday which will happen this coming Sunday.

Also for the marriage of Jarrod and Whitney and the travels of those who are coming for the wedding.
