Sunday our attendance at Forsythe was way off with lots of people traveling. All the more reason I’m sure that they’ll be burning up my podcast to hear my latest sermon, located HERE. Monday felt like a very hectic day, and I guess it was. Tuesday morning found the Dobbs house with a new refrigerator. We’ve been living without one since we left the apartment behind. It’ll be nice to have ice and cold drinks … maybe even milk for cereal (shoutout to Trey Morgan!). But alas, under the sink where you turn on the water so the fridge will make ice, there is a leak. So we have to leave it off until we get that fixed. Any plumbers around? The guy who installed the fridge said it needed an “o ring”. Me doing plumbing would be appropriate, since it is near halloween… a real thriller. But no chance. Anyway, it’s good to have refrigeration.
Last week a lady called the church to see if we could pass out some food boxes at their apartment complex that is mostly elderly and disabled people. Sure, why not. I got the address. I rounded up Cole and Michael Gordy and we headed out to meet other friends to hand out boxes. (I did not know where the boxes came from ….. I think now they come from the food bank via the counsel on aging, or vice versa). Anyhoo… Me and the Gordy boys went to the wrong place. BUT, they also distribute food boxes to the elderly, and had done so earlier in the day. Hmm. She did have a few that needed to go into the community and could I help? Sure. While we were getting those, we saw Jim Howard across the parking lot – actually at the right address … and we connected with the job for which we were originally called. (Is this complex? Is it boring? Staying with me?). We enjoyed doing this and plan to do it each last Tuesday of the month. The lady I met at the first building also organizes a food distribution near Thanksgiving that she needs help with. Perhaps our meeting was not an accident!
I asked the boys what they wanted for lunch and they shouted out “Jade Garden”! Far be it from me to keep a boy from his eggroll and fried rice. So that’s what we did. Then they showed me how to play Halo. Well, actually they killed me 45 times laughing at me while they gave me minimal information about how to play Halo!
