The Ramblings of Marty
February 28, 2008
We’ll start our morning with a shout out to my Savior Jesus Christ, who loved me with amazing love and grace, and proved that love by taking the penalty for my sins by sacrificing himself as an atonement for the world. I have believed and trusted (and failed many times over), and so this motivates me to do all of the things I do, including blog.
Also, yesterday, I was privileged enough to be on this list of growing blogs in WordPress. I’m not on the list today yet, but I was yesterday, and that was pretty cool. Thanks to those who read my blog and gain some value from the thoughts that flow through my head.
I wanted to give a shout out to two new friends who blog. I’ve wanted to do this for a week now, but every day I’ve forgotten in the daily grind of things. But you should really check out Steve and Garrett’s blogs. They don’t blog on a daily basis yet, but when they do blog, it’s usually pretty interesting.
Last night my basketball team played a make up game. It was the first game Carie was able to attend. As you may recall, our team now has been beaten by 40 points, 20 points and in this post, 1 point. Our team rallied around one another last night to win in an impressive 11 point game.
I say it was because of Carie.
My friend, Scott put in his usual 15 points, along with an impressive 3 pointer as the opposing team was attempting a comeback in the start of the 2nd half. I chipped in 13 points, but with the addition of a really tall new guy who didn’t have a great shot but was a great presence in the middle, I was able to play the role of a shooting forward instead of a power forward, which you might say is not my calling.
So we won 46-35!
This weekend will be another great time at Fellowship Church. I’m excited about what God is doing here on a regular basis, and this week will be Al’s first week being here two weeks in a row. Woohoo!
Last week we announced that we will be combining our services for Easter Sunday, so be aware Fellowshippers that we’ll have one service at 10:30 am for Easter! We’ll be announcing our new theme for this year that day as well!
Yesterday I took part in Watercooler Wednesday, an event you might want to look into if you enjoy blogging and culture. It’s the brain child (I believe) of my new friend Randy Elrod, and it was a lot of fun to check out. I’ll be a regular at the cooler, Randy.
So my mind is now empty for the most part. This afternoon, I’ll be sharing an idea we’ll be using for our Easter series for the purpose of utilizing and helping someone’s personal vision and potential. I’ll post it around 2 pm.
Until next time…
