Yesterday was Harvestfest in Harlan. Tabbi and the boys were over for a while for costume contest, games, free hot dogs, and trick or treating uptown. It was colder than we thought and finally started raining so we left before the parade…I’m not even sure whether they had the parade as it kep raining. We went to see “Where the Wild Things Are” last night…didn’t like it much. Certainly not for young kids. Don’t think we’ll be buying that one, but the good news is “Ice Age 3” comes out on DVD this week…now THAT’S fun! Firiday night we went to the Step Up To Life banquet in Omaha with Poggensee’s and Dallas, meeting Jim Greve there. Lois had to work and Kathy had a migraine 😦 Very nice evening. Tonight we may be going to a concert at Hansen Bros Coffee.
Thought for the day
Everything I read is pointing me to humility and loving and serving others unreservedly. I was reading 1 Peter chapter 2…lay it all aside…that being offenses, sins, misjudgments, bad choices, stupidity, malice, deceit, envy, slander, hypocrisy…mine and everyone else’s. Exteding grace. Having tasted His love, “now drink deep”. Don’t indulge my ego at the expense of my soul. (The Message) That really gets my atttention. In the NASB it reads “abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.” That makes me think of more obvious outward sins, but “don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul” puts things in a different light. Now (again) we’re talking about my ego, my pride, and my attitude. We are to honor all, love the brotherhood, and submit. All of this helps to contribute to the joy of obedience and fellowship and dependence on Jesus.
