Coming and Going

There is so much of our lives that I want to share with you, but it seems like there is not enough time to share anything. It seems like we have been passing ourselves coming and going. We are trying to get ready for our move. We are scheduled to pack on June 2-3 and load on June 4.

Yesterday was our last Sunday at Menokin. It was a good day. Laura, Victoria and I led in worship and the Lord was with us as we did so. Following worship we had a time of fellowship. Wow, I ate more than I should have, but I enjoyed that good old Menokin cooking. 

Maybe the best way to share some other things that have been going on in our lives is to just list them. Here goes, in no particular order:

1. We continue the downsizing process. Our house is looking less like an atomic bomb was dropped thanks to the hard work of Laura and Victoria.
2. I sold the truck. We had three vehicles and only needed two so we sold the one that got the worst gas mileage. Gas here is over $3.75.
3. We are out of credit card debt!!! Now we have to kick Sallie Mae out of the spare bedroom.
4. I am on vacation this week.
5.We went to DC twice last month. The second time we went to tour the White House.
6. We are going to Kings Dominion, this week.
7. We have been given two new Mac Books for our ministry. These computers are sweet!!!
8. We had a yard sale and got rid of all the stuff we were not going to move.
9. We escaped to Hershey PA for a couple of days. 
10. I went to the NASCAR race in Richmond. It was a blast!
11. I got my Father's Day gift early. Laura and Victoria will be in VA on June 15 so we celebrated Father's Day on Mother's Day. So for us it was Parent's Day! They got me an iPod in preparation for basic and eventually Iraq. It is sweet!!

Oh, I see myself coming so I better go!

Smith Family Story

I came across this video today and wanted to share it with you. I just finished a series on suffering. This video ties in beautifully. I hope it is a blessing to you.

For those of you who do not know, Todd sings with Selah.

I'll Do Whatever You Ask

Ridley Barron is pastor of Ridgeview Community Church in Tennessee. I read his blog, and I wanted to share one of his recent posts.

Here is the link to I'll Do Whatever You Ask.

Am I (are you) willing to do whatever God asks? I hope this question will be turned into a statement: I am (you are) willing to do whatever God ask!

Something to think about!
