Spirit soul and body
Well a few weeks ago my study for the week broke down the spirit, soul and body. A lot of what I read and went through wasn't really new to me. It was a eye-opener or "life" changing if you will. But there was one diagram in the book that stuck out to me and God imediatley started speaking to me. Not a word, cool phrase, scriptual but a simple visual on the page that seems to scream at me. Here a picture I took of it with my phone.
So much inside of so little
Have you ever stopped to think about how much technology has changed over the past ten or twenty years? Can you believe all of the things that we have come up with and what you constantly see coming out every day?
I am blown away by the minds that have the capacity and intelligence to dramatically change something we use on a daily basis. I have looked at things and thought, “Wow someone thought of this. Someone built this.” Humans are pretty cool.
First world problems
A year and a half ago I took a trip to Leon, Nicaragua for the second time in five months. I went with an amazing couple for a weekend, learning more about what it takes to start and grow a ministry in another country. The main reason for our visit was to connect more with the ministry Voice of Hope. I had been really moved by Voice of Hope when I went on a mission trip months prior and wanted to help them through my expertise. I was able to help them build a website at no cost and help them market their ministry better in the States. (You can go check out http://vohope.com/ if you want to see what they are about.)
THEN and NOW
I just received an invite to my ten-year High School Reunion. I am interested in showing up just to see what in the world people are up to these days. It also got me thinking about the good ole days. You know, when you won all the championships or have all the funny stories to reminisce on. I’ve heard people use the phrase, “Those were the days…” a lot. I even know a few people that talk about High School or College as the best time in their life as if nothing could ever be better. I think that’s sad.
The man in the restaurant
The other night my family went to eat at a local barbeque restaurant. We got seated and started eating when I couldn't help but notice a couple arriving at the booth next to us. They were older – or should I say more experienced – and the man could barely walk with his walker as his wife patiently waited for him to sit and scoot into the booth. An employee brought his tray and they sat together on the same side of the table.
