i am going to try as hard as possible to blog every day of september.
i have no idea what i will write about, but i figured that it would be a good discipline to undertake.
so, if you read my blog you will suddenly be getting more for your money (i should get paid for this!)
so until sept. 1... you will have to wait in utter anticipation, ooooh.

anyway, it was a lot of fun. here are some pictures from after the race was over.
Posing by the sheep creek sign. It is a gorgeous place. And it is also aptly named. These young mountain sheep were about 10-20 yards away from us.

i am into the third week on my first sermon series ever. I am working my way through ecclesiastes. i really enjoy this book for the real world stuff that takes place in it. solomon takes a good hard look at the world and things in it, and gives his honest feedback. i really felt God leading me to expound on this book to the congregation here. so far it is going really well. i am starting on chapter 2 this sunday... taking a more specific look at the things solomon tried to find meaning in (pleasuer, buildings, gardens, servants, music, etc...)
all of the relevant material in this book is awesome too. analogies and illustrations come so easily because tons of the issues that solomon tackled are still the same today. everyone is still searching for meaning through their job, life, people, substances, partying, etc...
yet, the answer is not under the sun... if you have never heard of the band called shane and shane you should check them out. they have a great song on their new cd, pages, that talks about getting over the sun to find the answer.
and the only answer is a relationship with Christ. and then the other things in life make sense, through God's plan.
