Here are some things I have been learning and observing the past couple weeks...
I am blessed to have friends in my life. My visit to Bluefield was great. I truly enjoyed my time with the Falls Mills Christian Church people. But what I loved most about the trip was the making of new friends and the re-connecting of old ones.
Sometimes we get so caught up in chasing after "things" in this world that we neglect the people in our life.
Yesterday I preached at the Church of Christ @ Grissom near Peru, IN. I only knew the host minister... and even then, I did not know him very well. But yesterday was wonderful... except for the migraine headache I had. (I've only had 3 or 4 migraines in my entire life... but wow!! they are rough.) However, I was touched by the hospitatlity and the compassion of the people there. Even though they didn't know me well, they went out of their way to help me feel better.
