Church was amazing today.  First, Dr. Jerry Benjamin was teaching today (and continuing next Sunday) on the book of The Revelation.  If you’ve heard him, you know you really have to have your listening ears tuned to fast forward!  He is truly gifted by the Lord, and I was blessed, challenged, and convicted.

Nathanael and Emily announced their pregnancy at church this morning.  Many already knew, but there were plenty of “ooooooohhhhhhhhs” and “aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhs”.  Pastor just about brought down the house declaring that he sure hopes to be around when “Nate is handling his own teenage son”.  Bub and Pastor got pretty close during Nathanael’s teenage years – alot of time spent in the Pastor’s office!

Many babies are forthcoming in our congregation…Emily is the only first pregnancy (Brandy is expecting her first, but doesn’t live here).  She will be in good company, though.  The other mothers are expecting numbers 8 and 10.  When we first came to NBBC, everyone told me that the best friendships are built in the nursing mothers room.  I never got to use that amenity, but have seen the wonderful relationships from those who are raising their children together.  We definitely have a blessed congregation.

Before I get off, I just want to post some pics that Bill was able to get at the MHS football game Friday night.  He and I work the Pass Gate at home games when we can, and we get to watch the game after the 3rd quarter.  Jeanne got to go with us this time, which was great!  My dear friend Lori’s 3rd born son plays defense for the Bears, so we enjoy watching him play.  Jeanne & I also graduated from MHS, so there is plenty of nostalgia there.  We won Friday night (48 – 42) after a double overtime tie breaker.  It was lots of fun, and I love Bill’s pictures.

dads Oct27 2006 football 345_640x480 Should have cropped this one, but got in a hurry.  This is probably not all the team, but is most of them.  They were gracious enough to pose for this shot because it was Lori’s birthday – she’s the athletic director’s secretary and they all just love her.

I’m off to bed now.  I hope you all have a blessed week!

    What a fun time!  And to have our Bears win for us was great.  I love the pics, but there was one of the group shots that I liked better.  It must not have passed muster.  It was one of those where they were sort of cutting up and looked like they were really having fun.  I am glad the church has been let in on the “secret”.  If only we can get them to let the cat out of the bag at G-Dad’s!  Anyway, Love and strained peas!
