Random Thoughts

Here are a couple of random thoughts...

>Barack Obama was elected our 44th President. Pray for him, he's going to need all the help he can get with things as they are. Might want to hold on to something it's going to be a bumpy ride!

>November 3rd would have been my Dad's 90th birthday. I miss being able to pick up the phone and give him a call and just chat. What a year this has been thus far!

>Been doing some archery deer hunting. Seen quite a few but none bigger that Logan's! Plenty of time left and the rut is just really getting started and the bucks just get plain stupid.

>Reading a couple of great book right now. Both are by Jerry Bridges, "Trusting God" and "Respectable Sins". The teens and adults in our church are reading the "Trusting God" for our Sunday School this fall and it is incredible, dealing with the sovereignty of God in our lives. I'm reading the Respectable Sin for my self and this book is convicting!!! The premise is that we do a good job of dealing with the "big" sins like abortion & homosexuality, but are we even concerned with or dealing with the more "acceptable" sin like just flat being ungodly, discontent, unthankful, prideful, selfish, angry and the list goes on. This book is not for the faint, because Bridges uses God's Word to do a surgical strike on the heart! Both books are really challenging and I would recommend them!

Read, study and learn. Keep looking up!
