Homemade Pizza, Laughing and Preaching!

Well I would just like to start off saying that I am having a great day today. I don't really know why, but I have just felt really good about life today! It's a great feeling and I love it!

For those of you that remember I was a preacher this weekend, Billy Gram if you will:) I was told that on a scale of 1-10, 1 being Benny Hen and 10 being Jesus, that I was a 4.5. I consider this pretty good because I wouldn't give anyone higher than a 7 if Jesus is 10, and I know it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't terrible either, so I am satisfied with that score. Anyway, the youth group I talked to had just lost their youth minister so that is why I was asked to preach, so I preached about vision in unclear times. I compared their situation to that of the first church in Acts 1 and 2.

Other than that my weekend was pretty good. On Saturday my friend Matt and I went to see our girls volley ball team play in a tournament at Ceadarville University because it was fairly close to my dad's house and that was where we were going afterwards. After the tournament a couple of the girls from the team along with Matt came over to the house for a little homemade pizza and some fun games with friends! It was a night filled with fun and a lot of laughter, and when I say a lot of laughter I mean a LOT of laughter:)

After an exhausting weekend, however, I was worn out, so yesterday (Monday) I skipped my first class so I could sleep in until 10:45, then got up for my second class, went to lunch, then went back and took a nap around 1:30 until dinner at 5 o'clock! It was a great day to catch up on some sleep and I did just that! This could have something to do with why I feel great today, but who knows!

In case anyone is looking for a good CD or something to listen to, I am currently listening to David Crowders' latest CD called Remedy. One song in particular that I'm listening to is called, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing. It's a very good song and has been stuck in my head for a while, so I thought I would share that with all ye faithful readers! Hope everyone has a great week and I hope to talk to you soon.

I heard you were at least a 5.2...
So sorry that it didn't work out for us to get down to see you. Kylie almost cried when we said we weren't going to have time to go by Grandpa Curly's farm, so walking around the pond and down by the crik was how we spent our extra time. As it was we rolled into our driveway at 12:53 this morning. I'm getting to old for such...

Hey, Preacher Man. I would love to hear you preach sometime. I know that you have such a heart for Jesus and am sure that comes out in your sermon. I'm so proud of who you are becoming, Jordan.
Delighted that you had such a nice, restful day.
Love, Aunt Saundra
