Shout out to LifeGroup

So...I don't know about the ladies (and Alex) but I had a good time at Lifegroup last night. Happy B-day to Andrea! YAY for cake.

Discussion was good...before...during...after...sitting in the car.

My favorite scripture from last night:

"And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness:
He who was revealed in the flesh,
Was vindicated in the Spirit,
Beheld by angels,
Proclaimed among the nations,
Believed on in the world,
Taken up in glory."
(I Timothy 3:16)

WOO-HOO! So...I re-read it this morning and kept going. I Timothy 4:10:

"It is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers."

And I Timothy 4:14-15:

"Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed upon you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery (elders). Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress may be evident to all. Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching, preservers in these things, for as you do this you will insure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you."

Good stuff. In chapter five, Paul talks about how young widows should get married so they don't become busybodies and gossips. I enjoy the bluntness of Paul. Makes me smile. Reminds me of my mom...you never have to question what they are thinking...they just tell you.

MAN, that must have been SOME P-A-R-T-Y! i think there was enough cake left on the floor to make a dog sick... ;D
