It's been a whole month since I've posted! It seems longer. What have we done?
-I've had gout. Gout! GOUT! And it hurts. I am now a vegetarian but I still can't eat beans, asparagus or cauliflower. And yes, I know about the cherry and strawberry thing. I've done all the research. I still have gout. Grrr.
-We went to Oregon on a retreat with our whole YWAM Modesto family where I...fished with my boys for the first time, hiked around a gorgeous waterfall, went swimming, had deer in our front yard, sat in a hot tub a few times, enjoyed the rythem of no schedule, spent happy days in clean mountain air, unwound, prayed with my friends, read and, well, did life.
-Spent the weekend with Amie's brother and sister-in-law's family in Portland where we video gamed, bowled, Wiied, watched movies and enjoyed a great visit.
-We, with our church, hosted our 6th annual BBQ for the homeless community of our town. We served tri-tip steak, all kinds of fixins, free haircuts and fun music right on our property. About 150 came out and a good time was had by all.
-We hosted our former pastor (Aaron's sending pastor) from Canada, John (you can listen to his awesome sermons here) and good friend Rodney who came to visit and help with preparations for the BBQ. They were a major blessing bringing warm greetings from the congregation there and physical, financial and moral support. It was so good having them here.
So that's that...I've got a few posts in the works so don't give up checking in on me.
