*I am so thankful for our family. If you want to feel thankful for your family, read H-Mama's post from today and you'll see what I mean. (I dare you not to cry!)
The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble; And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Espresso is interested in making videos and posts them on youtube. He always has the camera going to shoot someone doing something funny or gross. I just found a program online that lets you make cartoons AND it's FREE!! Yay for him and me!
It's called DoInk. If you are interested in seeing how it works, I posted a video on my other blog.
Your pastor may need a time of refreshing, even if it is just for an evening of relaxation and hearing from the Lord. I'd like to make a suggestion. Get together with some caring people and figure out how you can bless your pastor. It will knock his socks off! (That could be gross...)
Here are some suggestions:
Have your children make some cards for him
Send him and his family e-cards or encouraging emails
Pray for him as a group and send him a card telling him that you did
ASK him what you can pray for specifically (then ask his wife!!!!!)
Take his family a cake or a dinner
Take up a collection for dinner for him and his wife
Take up a collection and send him and his wife out on a couple day sabbatical
If anyone has any other neat ideas, please comment them and I will post them. Thank you!
FYI: No, these aren't suggestions for our congregation! (They don't read my blog.)
Espresso has quite a fascination with video making. He makes documentaries when we go on trips, videos gross things that the Moose does; he has that thing running all of the time. (Sometimes, I have to make him instantly delete a video because someone didn't know it was running and the result might be quite embarrassing!)
Often, he edits, adds sound effects, text, or music to his videos. Here is one of his recent videos that I thought was pretty cool.
