I'm not writing anything profound lately...

We spent the evening with the Mackleys, as they are in for the weekend.  They came for Jordan's party, and Pastor T , Larry and Jordan spent the day together doing a special project at the church.  We are getting ready for what I believe will be an amazing service this morning...gearing up for what God will do at Celebration Church.  This morning is Jordan's last Sunday on the drums.  He's experiencing the plethora of "lasts" this week here in Tampa before he goes off to basic training.  I'm trying not to think about it too much.  I've had two horrible crying myself when no one is around.  Crying isn't something I do a whole lot in front of people, at least not to this point in my life, for many reasons.  Maybe that will be something profound to write about in future days, but not today.

I hate the fact that there has to be a "last" anything this morning but since we're not in heaven yet it's just the way life is structured.  While we're still in these earthly shells we have to deal with this thing called goodbyes.  This morning Larry and I are dedicating a baby in the service.  These parents have no idea how fast the time is going to go before they send this little one off into the world on their own.  I could try to tell them but no one ever comprehends it until it actually happens to you.  Oh well, enough of that.  I can only handle talking about it in very small doses.

As I started out by saying in the title of this post, I haven't written anything particularly profound lately.  But my friends have.  In recent days I've just written about daily life most of the time and not ruminated on any other topics.  I thought I'd give some shout outs today:

Pastor Leanne Weber's post, Should young women go to college?  Great stuff here.  

Tina Blount tackles the issue of what to do when your faith just isn't enough.  I have found myself there a time or two and I'm sure you can relate.

Laurie at Women Taking a Stand covers the topic of making the most of time.
