Seattle, Breakfast, & Sunday
It’s Saturday. I just returned from Seattle where I participated in the Acts 29 bootcamp, connected with other planters, and assessed some men for church planting. Seattle was cold and cool. We had one of the best breakfast meals I have ever had. Breakfast is a big deal for our family. We’ve made a point of Saturday breakfast out together for years. It used to be a great connecting time with my wife. Nine years and and two kids later, it has evolved into family time. It’s still fun, just different fun. But breakfast at Lola’s in downtown Seattle, we got to resurrect those heart-warming, marriage-enriching breakfast times. I had time to take in not only delectable pancakes and maple syrup, but more importantly my wife’s beauty, soaking in her companionship. What a gift!
We worked and played together in Seattle, drank coffee and deliberated over pastoral issues. And now I am under the gun for tomorrow’s sermon, sacrificing Saturday breakfast and then some. Normally I wouldnt take a minute to write a post when I’m under pressure, but being at Mozart’s reminded me of being at Lola’s, minus my lovely wife. So, if you read this pray for me as I write our sermon. If you read this, remember to take time to enjoy your spouse. As Solomon said, “Delight in the wife of your youth.” If you arent young, you can do that anyway! Hope to see you Sunday.
