40 Days in the Word – Week 1

23 Sep

This morning, Ed and I took a needed break from working out and slept in a bit before attending early service at church together.  We were pleased to here from the new teaching pastor.  Both of us can really relate to his style of teaching and gives us a taste of the teaching we miss back from our regular church in Ohio.  After service, we split.  Ed went to Goodwill to drop off our items from yesterday’s purging adventure and I went to serve in the nursery.

This week was the kickoff for the “40 Days in the Word Challenge”.  Ed and I decided as a couple to take on the challenge together since we are currently not part of a small group.  Each week involves a verse to memorize and a lesson.  Scripture memorization is a struggle we both have.  I envy the people who can throw out the most appropriate Bible verse in the middle of a deep conversation.  It is not my gift, but I accept the challenge.

In order for Ed and I to help each other out, I placed this weeks verse on a card and taped it to the bathroom mirror.  How original, right?

Check me out.

Perfect!  As soon as I showed Ed, his first comment was, “you haven’t memorized is yet?”  Seriously, dude?  😉

While we were all set to tackle this lesson on our own, we received a call from friends this afternoon inviting us to their group tonight as they are also starting the lesson and know we were looking for a group to join.  Brian and Pamela are a great couple we met when we first started attending Grace.  They invited us to dinner at their place before group and then we’ll be diving into the lesson with others.  After that Ed’s second volleyball game of the season will take place.

Busy Sunday to say the least.  Sleeping in was definitely a ‘must do’.

What are you up to on this beautiful Sunday afternoon?

With the exception of all the above activities, we did get a little relaxation in, organized some more of the apartment and lots of Sunday Football.  Fantasy Football is a high level topic of conversation around here these days.  What about where you are?
