Back in the Saddle


I haven't blogged in a long time...mostly because the pace of life has been blistering but also because of a lack of scheduled time to do so. I am sitting here typing this and yet, my mind is screaming at me to think about the next thing I have to do...

So I will stop my mental to do list for the next few moments so that I can share some good stuff that is worth celebrating! First, our family celebrated two birthdays since the last time wrote. Sam turned 6 on the 20th of June and I turned "mmmfrrfmmrr" the day after his birthday. I can't say that I feel any different. It's pretty much "my life BEFORE thirty" and everything after...

It's everything after that I am pretty excited about! My wife, Cori has lost so much weight in the last year and I am SOOO proud of her for that. She seems like she is really starting to catch her stride and take off in new ways. The kids are growing like weeds and full of opinions and ideas that make me laugh and cringe all at the same time!

The Intersection got an open door to begin services in the Gettysburg Middle School starting in August which will be a fantastic step in the life of our young church plant. I am thrilled and anxious all at the same time, but I have a great team around me and I am turning ALL of that anxiety over to my Father. He is in control and I have nothing to worry about!

Finally, Harvest Cry 2010 took place last week and it was a powerful time of faith and restoration! We saw over 150 people give their lives over to Christ (50 of which were baptised) and there was a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our midst which is just the start of some really BIG things to come. Anyways, I have to celebrate and thank God for those things because He alone can bring this kind of change and restoration! Thank you, my Father!!
