this is what we had dinner yesterday and i think it was thoroughly enjoyed.

the past two weeks my family and i have been gone to maranatha and a family reunion in pennsylvania, and i am including joseph as part of my family. the preaching at camp was good and it seems every year i get convicted of being too much of the world instead of just in it and passing through. the reunion was fun, we got to meet a new uncle and two new cousins but sadly aunt johanna and my brother couldn't make it.

david morris is going to be preaching every night this coming week and i am anxious to see what God will do through him. maybe it wont be anything that everyone will see and know about but if one person is saved or has a personal revival than its good. but then again we have been praying for revival for so long it would be nice to see it happen at least once in my lifetime. i don't want to sound to whatever but if we all ask great things of God then we should expect great things to happen, i just hope we are ready and that we wont quench it if it does come.

which is more important, to spend most of your time witnessing to your own family or to your friends and people you don't know or are they both equally important? sadly i don't do much of either, for my friends i'm to afraid of what they will think if i start talking "religion" and besides i like that they think i'm normal and for my family i think its my parents job or basically its anybody's job but mine. i can pray for them all and hope that someday they will come to know Christ but i leave the actual working with them and talking to them to someone else. its so hard to change a habit but with His help i know i can. i want to be able to not care what they say about me so long as i've said that thing that's popped into my head instead of pretending i didn't hear it.

create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right spirit in me, cast me not away from Thy presence oh Lord and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me, restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation and renew a right spirit in me.

theres an attempt at a post, i sorta felt like writing something but wasn't sure what so i just started writing.

do you talk the walk first, or walk the talk first, or talk and walk at the same time?

I realize that can sound confusing, but think about it for a few minutes.

If you're not walking you shouldn't be talking. That's obviously hypocritical. But when I tried to say that I would walk first, then talk, I didn't do much walking.

When I started walking and talking at the same time, I found that walking made it easier to talk, and talking kept me accountable for the walk.

I hope you get my point.
