Sunday has got to be the best day of the week! Today was no exception.

I remember a year ago going to work on Sunday morning at The Home Depot and walking down the main aisle about 7:55 a.m., before the store officially opened. I wondered, "What in the world am I doing here on Sunday morning?" Then First Baptist Church Pearland gave me a part-time position leading discipleship and I've been where I belong the past year. This little walk down memory lane keeps life in perspective for me. Thanks for reading along.

I've got some good news. Miranda and Steve are expecting their second child next February. That will be our fourth grandchild in less than three years. I never imagined what it would be like to have four grandchildren that close together. Truth is, I never imagined four grandchildren period. God is so good (all the time)!

Changing the subject...our lawn is really growing. If I cut it on Saturday, it is really ready to cut again before the next Saturday. I heard that other people are experiencing the same thing. I am amazed at how green it is and how fast it grows. That is what grass is suppose to do. It is suppose to grow. If it is fertilized, watered, weeds removed, and disease prevented, anybody's grass will grow. Just like grass, you and I are suppose to grow as well. The Word of God enriches our lives. Life opportunities and the decisions that we make strengthen our lives. Living the Christian life gives us an opportunity to grow and if we grow, our lives will become healthy. We can't help but grow in our faith.

The next time you look at your lawn, or cut the grass, think of your own life.
