I figured I’d just start off by listing some things I’m really excited about. These are ways that God is blessing our lives that have me all full of joy today.
- God is sending us workers for Arlington Church of Christ! Attendances is up 33% from a year ago and is at 7 year high! Our Thursday Night Coffee House (soon to be Coffee House Ministries) has grown from 6 people to 28, all of them newcomers to ACOC!
- My kids have finished another year of school. Almost, anyway. There’s still eight days left. Our oldest son was honored for receiving all A’s and B’s this year, for being Student of Year in 7th grade Spanish, and was inducted in the National Junior Honor Society.
- I finished a goal of running 100 miles this year. That may not seem like much to some of you, but it is a major milestone for me. Check out my cool Nike Certificate.
- My mom had breast cancer for about two weeks. It wasn’t a blessing that she had cancer, of course, but rather that it was removed and treated as quickly as it was. They removed the lump and found no trace of cancer any where else, not even in the lymph nodes. Today she starts radiation, but it will be delivered specifically to the site of the lump meaning that she’ll have five days of treatment this week and will be done with it. Prognosis is something like 97% chance of no recurrence or something crazy like that.
I’m sure there’s more, but this will do for now. Let us know how God has blessed your life this week.
