Sabbatical Day One

Day one is about officially over for me.  It's almost 11pm and I'm about to hit the sack, wake up again at 3 and feed babies then go take my friends Byron and Doug back to the airport at 4:30am.  I'm hoping to catch a nap when the babies nap tomorrow.

Today was a very enjoyable day for me.  I got to ride with my family to church for the first time in several years.  We took the twins to church, this was their first public appearance.  I did have to get up and go into the lobby during the sermon because I was feeding "Fred" and he was grunting rather loudly.  It was great to go to church without any responsibility this morning other than get my family their and worship with my church family.  I don't know how many people in churches realize that there are many church staff and volunteers that rarely get to ride to church with their family.  It was great to get to do that today.

Church service was rockin as Exodus led worship in music.  Rick delivered another great sermon from the life of Moses.  I'm enjoying this series.

So day 1 was pretty uneventful.  I look forward to seeing what day 2 has in store for me.

Sorry I messed up my link and had to repost this comment... :)

"ADD" you can't be more right on! My vehicle just went nuts on me... and in the month(s) getting it fixed it forced my family to change our routine around so we had to ride together to church. After my vehicle got fixed we've maintained it as a permanent fixture in our Sunday morning madness... I look forward to following your sabbatical! Enjoy your sabbath...

This morning in my morning quiet time I wrote the following:

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God...
