You Leave for College Tomorrow, Nick!

Thought maybe you didn't remember...You are moving down to Pt. Loma tomorrow for your junior year of college. Should have reminded you earlier. We have loved having Davis here! So fun hanging out with Maryann last night! Great having Kyle come over and catch us up on his life! Vigi's doughnuts good this morning? Good surf? How many hours were you, Kyle, Davis and Greg surfing?! And, how was Rico's? Did they call you "Necky" or "Dos Colores"? Did you all enjoy the movie you were all watching this afternoon? And, how is work going tonight? Busy? Any demanding, obnoxious customers? Any inappropriate comments from young girls? Or, your parents? :-) And, do you work tomorrow?

Also wondering (but not wanting to be a nosey mom), do you have sheets that fit your dorm room bed? Or, any sheets at all? Towels? Are you packed? Clothes clean? School bill paid? Have you signed up for your classes yet? Will you visit Grandpa in the hospital before you leave? Is your car filled with gas? Will your room be cleaned and cleared out (I envision a cute guest room!) by the time you leave tomorrow? And, by the way, what time will you be leaving? Just curious...

And, will our recycle bin be emptied by the time you leave???


ps~I will miss you like crazy this year.

View from the Deck

As Aunt Rebecca, Uncle Brian, Dad and I (where have you gone, Ali?) are sitting on the deck, overlooking the waters of Green Bay (after 50 years I just discovered that our cabin is on the Green Bay waters, not on Lake Michigan), I am, again, sensing an urgency to share with you three. Especially, since I left something...a very big thing...out of my last sermon.

Your Aunt Rebecca and I have been talking about being outside here, seeing God's amazing, beautiful, thoroughly unique creation and how it just speaks to us, our spirits, our souls of our God! I am filled up! Singing praises to Jesus (not out loud...there are others here)! Waking up talking to my Father!

Anyway...Back to Part II of the "Who We are IN Christ" sermon...

"For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him YOU HAVE BEEN MADE COMPLETE, and He is the head over all rule and authority."—Colossians 2:9,10 (emphasis mine to point out my point)

So, because we are IN Christ, we are complete! Believe it! Live like you believe it! Thank God for it!


ps-Greg & Nick: Hope you are having a great weekend! Let me guess...Hours of surfing, late night Rico's runs, watching soccer, lots of wrestling and laughing, church?!!

Ali: What a blast being here at the cabin with you!!!
