Unruly Will

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayer of the Saints

"So often our first reaction to muddle is to clear it up, to organize, control, or fix the problem rather than ask what we might learn from the experience. We close our hearts to the distasteful parts of life that challenge us to listen for God's voice, to acknowledge our limitations, and to grow. We lose touch with our deepest heart-life, hardening ourselves against that acknowledgment that God speaks the life-enhancing word that invites change. Hardness of heart is a refusal to listen, an avoidance of obedience."

Reading Week

This past week was reading week (aka., Spring Break). I absolutely accomplished no reading during this past week! Good for me.

Dru and I had a great time in Florida though. Everything was great, except for this. I was able to play some golf with mom, dad, and D. That was fun. I didn't shoot what I would have like but I can't really complain considering I hadn't played since Thanksgiving.

Dru and I were able to share a Good Friday mini-service with mom and dad. That was good.

Most important news: My sister is pregnant! Weird...but a very good weird! You all can start calling me Uncle now.

D has some pictures up from golf and a lot more info on the pregnancy. Check it out!
