Today, I decided to apply the sermon that I preached on Sunday to my own life by "embracing today." I have no extra time to take a day off, but today is President's Day. And President's Day is not significant this year, besides the fact that my children were out of school and they will never be this young again. I told Beth when we woke up, "We'll long for this day twenty years from now." So, we spent the day together as a family, and we had a blast! We took pictures on the Shelby Street pedestrian bridge. We then went to "Love Circle" off West End Blvd. Lincoln especially took pride in climbing the hill - his personal Mt. Everest. We then had a late lunch / early supper at The Loveless Cafe on Hwy 100. We walked off the large meal with a short hike outside of Percy Warner park. Lots of laughs. Lots of pictures. A day I'll never forget.

All I can say about Sunday is – Wow! Two great churches came together, and it was an explosion of energy and excitement. The Hope Center Fellowship was so welcoming. I know God was pleased to see His church come together. It was interesting to see people from both congregations recognize each other. Maybe all the different churches keep us from recognizing that those we work and shop with are our fellow brother and sisters. I hope to see more of His body coming together.
