Tonight as I look back on the day, I’d been looking a bit down the barrel of a gun (so to speak… or… racing against the clock) but came through it well enough and even had some time to spare.
Let me tell you about..
- Church started out similar to how it typically does. We have a time of prayer before Liz came up to lead worship. She really does a great job of that… and to think, she’s really a bit of a wall-flower by nature – very happy to remain in the background. During prayer, the Spirit of the Lord hit and the atmosphere changed… we felt a Spirit of power and authority. What a great way to go into the preaching of God’s word! During prayer, another couple arrived and greatly benefited from the message on Philippians 4.13 and John 8. God is GOOD!
- Just before arriving home, I peeked in on the bees. After several days of cold, cloudy, dreary, windy weather, they must’ve been glad to spread their wings because there was a TON of activity at the entrance (take a look at the 11sec. video below to get a sense of it). I can’t explain it, but it’s (oddly enough) so very therapeutic to get within a few inches of them, hear them hum and watch them fly. They’re surprisingly docile (when you’re not disturbing them of course). God’s creation is amazing and amazingly wonderful!
- The last #GoodThing of the day was finishing up the last bit of marking for ESSCA, in Angers. I had about 2/3 of the semester tests remaining to mark (I have to drop them off tomorrow when I’ll be up there for a team meeting) and I always have a bit of apprehension about marking the written paragraphs because there’s so much room for error. All went rather quickly though and I was done early enough that I was able to ‘veg’ or ‘unwind’a bit before heading to bed.
