Not Just Another Day

For many in America, today is a day to sleep in for recovery of extracurricular activities from the weekend, maybe get a few extra things done around the house, in general a somewhat self-serving day before embarking on another work week. For me and my family, this is the most special day of the week. It is the day we meet with other Christians to celebrate the Lord Jesus Christ, to encourage each other in The Cause, and to learn from His Word together. In a few minutes, our house will be a beehive of activity as the boys busily eat their breakfast and get spruced up in anticipation of the occasion. To this point I can never recall a Sunday when any of them were negative about going to the church gathering (from Titus, 3 yrs., to Jordan, 16 yrs.). We all seem to have a common spirit of understanding the significance, potential, and joy of this day of the week, Sunday, the day that gets our week off to the right start as we meet with our Christian family in order focus on our purpose and meaning as given to us by our loving Savior, the Resurrected Lord of All!

Do men do this?

My wife already has a "blog", and she really enjoys it. Women seem to naturally be more social and interactive. They gravitate towards each other and what is going on in their friend's lives. Men seem to have work more at being interactive and relational. They tend to keep more to themselves and put on a facade. With that being said, I don't have much expectation of anyone actually taking the time to read my entries. But, if nothing else, I plan on using this as a journalling type experience that will serve to give me opportunity to think through various issues related to my life, how I feel about things, and articulate my thoughts accordingly. If any other men end up being encouraged or helped in some way, that will be great as well!
