Big Days

There have been some big days lately for my family and our church. 

Our oldest son, Kendall, flew out to Colorado Springs last week for Summer Seminars at the Air Force Academy. He seemed to have had a good time even though it was quite strenuous physically. Most importantly for mom and dad, he made it back. 

Our church had a huge Sunday. We made faith (financial) commitments for a new facility. Our pledges exceeded our goals. We also received an initial offering toward that facility. That offering was more than our total offerings during my first year at the church. The phase I kept saying on Sunday was "I can't believe this!" Wow!

Finally, we travel to Durham today for my niece's graduation from high school. I know I sound old, but I remember vividly the day she was born. She is the first of 6 grandchildren to graduate. She begins four straight years of high school graduations for the grand kids. If the kids get through college in four years, my parents could be going to a graduation each year for the next 10 years. Wow.
