Hi hey hello,
I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty good, very productive. I legitimately got all my homework done on Friday night! I was super pumped. I got all my reading for history done, got ahead in the book I have to read, got my study guide all prepped for studying tomorrow, and got my education assignments done. I am such a beast. Just kidding… sorta.
Saturday was a day that I legitimately just laid around, until the evening. That evening I went to Wakulla to have a little fundraiser dealio for DR. It was awesome, we ate yummy food, watched the football game, played cards, and got to spend time with some of my favorite people. It’s so funny how in such a short time, a group of people can creep up and take up such a large place in your heart. I’ve only been at Wakulla for a little less than two months, and already these kids have taken up residency in my heart. I just love them to death. Oh yeah, Josh, Wesley, and Ashleigh are pretty cool too, I guess. 🙂
So, after a long night of watching football and playing cards, not getting home until 12:30, and then not sleeping like a dumbo after that, I didn’t want to get up to go to church yesterday morning, and after turning off my alarm twice, I got up and got ready in time to just make it to second service. I am so glad I went! It was such an awesome message!
One thing Pastor Kent said that I really like, and even though it is so unbelievably cheesy and dumb, it is true and it always seems to stick with me. He said, we are a living epistle, and we are the book people will read more than the Bible. Meaning, our lives are going to be the only testimony a person may receive. It is such a cliché phrase, but it holds so much truth.
One thing that Pastor Kent said that really hit me was that an “off-color” innuendo can completely ruin our witness for someone. I don’t know about you, but I am incredibly guilty of tossing out innuendos and also laughing at them. I mean, let’s be honest, they are really funny, but they are crude, dirty, and overall not something that Philippians 4:8 says we should be thinking about. That one really hit me and I want to get better about that. Even today, after that message, I can think of more than a few instances where I either said or laughed at an “off-color” innuendo.
What do you all think about that?
