As our family conference approaches (starts next Saturday), we are getting all the run-up preparations cared for. Yesterday was my day to do things around the house. We'll have some 17 guests (friends and family) staying with us beginning Thursday. It will also be the first time all of our grand children have been together with us in a year--that makes all the work/aggravation more than worth it! One special treat for me will be to meet Mr. Noah (our newest grandson) for the first time.
I started yesterday with a hospital visit and then moved on to my "honey-do" list. Most of the day I cleaned, repaired (installed a new sink and storage shelving in the garage!) and moved things out of the house. Cynthia is in her "Ms Clean" mode, so the dust is flying!
Our summer conference is always a special time. Largely the fruit of our efforts through Grace School of the Bible, it allows us to gather folks from across the country (but mainly the midwest--we have meetings in other regions throughout the year, too) who fit the KJB, mid-Acts, grace-life believer mode. I have always said that we are not all there is to the so-called grace movement, but we are!
Our fellowship and associations have been a very lively endeavor through the years. We haven't looked backward, or even side-ward at what others are doing/saying, but have focused on the future and applying Paul's message and ministry model to the world we live in and the world we are moving toward. The fruit speaks for itself.
We intend to put the messages live on the Internet--assuming the wireless service at the hotel cooperates. We'll also have DVD/CDs available. I'm working today on final preparations for the afternoon seminar on Welcome To Winter!
