I hate missing church.

I just have to be honest about this. I got up yesterday and literally felt like I was out of place. I did my "30 Day Shred", read my B90X, hung out with my wife and kids, watched Craig Groeschel and Andy Stanley preach on the internet, worked on a few projects--it just wasn't the same.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love the snow, love the occasional lazy day. But let it snow on Monday and melt by Saturday night. I've got to have some worship time with my people at Ridgeview. I missed our worship band leading us in those amazing worship songs. I missed hearing our people sing and pray. I missed the smiles and the hugs and the conversations with the people who are my family. It just wasn't the same.

So...I'm giving you fair warning. Some long range forecasts are calling for some white stuff again this weekend. It may or may not happen. But if it does, I may just walk to church and meet whoever can show up (safely, mind you). I've got to worship with my Ridgies. Looking forward to this Sunday more than ever. Hope I'll see you there.

Ditto, Brother. Physically exhausted from 2 days of sledding (not shredding) and a little empty on the spiritual insides. Can't wait for next Sunday....and if there is snow/sleet ring me as you walk by and I'll trek along with you.
