I’ve been on here every day. I read what all my friends have to say, I miss them when they aren’t here. I love reading their thoughts. I love to pray for them when they ask for prayer. Then I come to write………and…………blank. Nothing seems relative, insightful, witty, worth putting in black and white. It is a good thing I don’t have to write for a living. I would go hungry. I guess that is what they call writer’s block. Communication is not my strong suit. Relationship is not my strong suit. I am much more comfortable in the confines in my own home. But, God calls us to relationship. So, how do you all do that? Corporate worship is a good beginnng, but Sunday School and small groups bring it to a more personal level. My small group keeps me in the Word, keeps me active, keeps me from crawling into my corner and withdrawing. God knows that I have to work hard to step out of my box and talk to people. It really is much easier to fold my arms, tuck my head and walk directly to where I am headed. So to tell you that I accepted an appointment from the Greater Muhl Chamber of Commerce as an Ambassador just scares the beejeebers out of me. Now, I must tell you I am doing the Beth Moore study, Stepping Up. One night last week in the chapter on Psalm 122 the study asks, “How is God using your town or city to equip you to be a humble servant?”…..then…….”How is God using you in your town or city?” I didn’t have an answer that night, I left it blank. The next day I got the telephone call from the Chamber. How could I tell them anything other than yes? God is stretching me—–so those of my friends reading this—–I need prayer. Prayer from you, prayer by me, and my personal relationship with God will be all that gets me through stepping out (or up) of my box and being an Ambassador. Whew…..God sure has a sense of humor.
Chamber Golf June 12, 2008
Today my son, two of his friends and I played in the Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament. We shot 20 under par and won the tournament. Boy, that was lots of fun. We had 3 eagles in a row…….we parred one hole and that was in the wind, rain and beginnings of the storm we had this afternoon. We had to go in for a rain delay. We ended the day with 3 eagles, 1 par and 14 birdies. After watching someone else play that well last weekend, it was great to do it ourselves today!! I would love to play that good all the time! Tomorrow is back to work. 😦 Hope it is a good day for you.
