Heal up Gilbert. We’ll catch you next year. You missed out on the hotdogs!!!! :)
Me and some other SC men are getting together between now and Christmas every Friday morning at 6am to just pray for each other and the Shoal Creek community. Would love to have you join us if you’d like! But totally respect if you want to take a break after just finishing up this past semester.
Any other SC male is welcome too! We’re just spending time sharing what God has put on our hearts and praying for those things, whatever they may be.
One of the things that appealed to us about our house when we bought it 20 years ago was the abundance of storage space. The flip side of that benefit is that over the past two decades we filled every nook and cranny with accumulated crap. Spent the day after Thanksgiving sorting through and discarding much of it. Two car loads to Goodwill! Boxes of books to the library! Sold a box of vinyl LPs for $20 on Craigslist! Extra large trash bags at the curb yesterday! If we were hesitant to give something up, it helped to ask these questions: “Does this bring me joy? If not, why am I keeping it?”
Why did we think we needed to keep so much for so long? Why did we acquire it in the first place? Why isn’t God enough?
If you are buying on Amazon today try AmazonSmile and look for Shoal Creek. They throw us a few pennies for each sale that identifies with Shoal Creek on AmazonSmile.
