Thought #1 - I think I am officially coming out of the most emotionally trying season of my life. To be honest, I think I'm a better person because of it (mainly because it's knocked a lot of pride and selfishness out of me).
Thought #2 - I have an incredibly sweet daughter. We've walked through some "terrible 3s" (the 2s were a breeze), but she is showing us a caring and generous spirit on multiple fronts.
Thought #3 - We often overestimate Satan's power, but significantly underestimate his tactics. We're doing a 3 week Wednesday series called "The Spirit Realm" in Senior High. We're doing a Sunday Morning Senior High elective on Spiritual Warfare. As I refresh and study both, I'm reminded there is an unseen war taking place. The battle is really already won if we let it, but we often don't.
Thought #4 - I work with an amazing team at NMC. I'm especially appreciative of the work ethic and team mentality of those I share an office section with (The Student Minsitries and Young Adult Staff).
Thought #5 - I can't wait to play catch with my son.
