Rob is great...

This morning Sam and I went to Fellowship of the Parks in Keller to hear our nephew, Rob, preach.
Whoa. He is so good.

My mind never wanders when I hear him speak. It couldn't even if it tried. I mean, Rob can hold folks' attention like nobody else I know.

FotP is doing a series called "Beautiful Day". And you guessed it... they're using U2 music!!! Today they did "Stuck in a Moment".
Here's Dusty Gallup singing it...

After that song, Rob spoke about how we need to move on towards Christ ... and not be stuck in the past, particularly stuck in awfulness that has happened to us - or by us.

I am so glad God is using Rob - and Rob is letting Him - because Rob knows how to communicate God-stuff, in language people can understand.

Here's a picture of him I stole from Facebook....
(You can tell what day that was.)

And here's a picture of Sawyer, their little boy, who will be two next month!
Talk about darling.
(In July, they're having another baby!)
(I couldn't resist putting that picture up.)

I wasn't going to devote this whole post to Rob and his family... but I just have to go where my blog-muse takes me.

Oh, now my blog-muse is telling me to show you something totally different..... the ring Sam gave me for my big birthday!!!
(I cropped the picture a lot.  It's pretty sobering to take a picture of your hand ... and see how it is aging!)

I'll leave you on that note with this quote....

"There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt."

I love all of those photos! (esp the one from our wedding, those photos still make my heart stabby) (that's my new word: stabby). And that is my all time favorite photo of Sawyer. And of course I agree with you about Rob, he is so talented! :)

I haven't seen you in so long, I think it's time for me to visit the tea room!!
