It was nice to see some folks and to have everything be less hectic and halloween'ish if you take my meaning.
Kids are going to be nuts tomorrow. Sheesh.
It's all good. Tara will likely post pictures tomorrow too...
... when evil is done, one response alone can overcome the evil. Revenge perpetuates the evil. Justice punishes it. Evil is overcome by good only if the injured party absorbs it, refusing to allow it to go any further. And that is the pattern of otherworldly grace that Jesus showed in his life and death.-Philip Yancey, P224, Rumors of Another World, 2003 Zondervan
Ecclesiastes 7:8 (New Living Translation)Finishing is better than starting.
Patience is better than pride.
This verse has been running around my head a little this week. Finishing things is hard. It takes more work then starting, it's harder to keep your energy up over a whole project, it's easy to get distracted on the way to the end.
