You remember the old 80s Sitcom the Facts of Life. The opening line of the song went like this... "You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have the Facts of Life." My day yesterday could be summed up by that phrase. :)
First, the good. We had an amazing day yesterday at Cornerstone. It is hard to believe that we have been here for 7 1/2 months. We had our biggest attendance day yet. 102 people were in attendance. It was the first time that we went over the century mark in attendance. Sasha is doing our Kid's ministry and they had 23 kids in their service. Sasha said that the kids really entered into worship yesterday. Ron and Heather Rhoads are with us in Revival Meetings this week. Both services were awesome yesterday with great times of worship, great preaching and great altar services.
Now, the bad. Last night, after service, Ron and Heather came over to the house to watch the second half of the Dallas Cowboys playoff game. I had recorded the game on our DVR. Suprisingly, no one had revealed the score to us. So, we watched as if the game were live except for being able to fast forward through commercials. I couldn't believe what I was watching. It was a nightmare of penaltys. The special teams were horrible. The defense and offense were not bad with the exception of the penaltys that kept giving the Giants chance after chance. In the end, the 'boys lost. With that, both of my Super Bowl picks (The Colts and The Cowboys) are gone from the playoffs.
The good far outweighed the bad. I'm so excited about what God is doing at Cornerstone. Be sure to come to Revival meetings Tonight through Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
