Sunday Night Unwind

Posted: September 3, 2007 in Church, Happenings, Music
  • Actually, it’s nearly 2 a.m. Monday morning.  Our daughter, Kailyn, was feeling extremely nauseated starting around 11 p.m., so Stacey and I stayed up to take care of her until she fell asleep and her “tummy” felt better. 
  • I had a blast at church this morning.  We concluded the iLife series talking about resting – finding time to spend in God’s presence and how THAT’S real rest – being ‘still’ and knowing that He is God (Ps. 46:10)…letting him “quiet us” with his holy love, and rejoice over us with singing (Zeph. 3:17).  We built some deliberate quiet moments into the program before and after the message, and though absolute silence can be awkward at first, I think the end effect was powerful.  It was great to spend just a few moments un-distracted…then we quietly started the Zepheniah 3:17 song.

1. Here Is Our King – David Crowder Band

2. You Never Let Go – Matt Redman

3. Better is One Day – Kutless variation

4. Zepheniah 3:17 – composer unknown

5. I Stand Amazed – arr. by Chris Tomlin

  •  As I blogged before, “I Stand Amazed” is an incredible song.  It facilitated what I think one of the most worshipful moments I can recall having in church in a long time.  Such things can’t be manipulated (nor should they), but every now and then something just clicks, God’s presence is evident, and our collective response is amazing!
  • Napped today.  Much needed after my chronic insomnia this past week. 
  • In other news, had a big crowd over tonight for “crabbage” – snow crab legs, shrimp cocktail, sushi (salmon, tuna), and various other ‘eats.’  Good food, good company.
  • While we were waiting for Kailyn to feel better tonight, I played Halo 2 for a while (single player).  Now I finished the original Halo years ago, but I never bothered to play through more than 1/3 of Halo 2, which is proverbial sin in the gaming world – especially since Halo 3 comes out at the end of the month.  Game on!
  • Why can you only get royal red shrimp on the coast?
  • Stacey worked a 13-hour workday yesterday.  Ouch.  4 hours for a usual Saturday shift, 1 hour lunch in between, then an 8-hour shift at Walgreen’s.  Again…ouch.  She works for them occasionally to keep her employment (and previous retirement benefits) current AND to makes some extra cash.  Granted, some extra money here and there is nice, but given how difficult it can be for us to find any time together at all these days, I’d rather spend the time with her.
  • Lots of work to do tomorrow.  Labor day = labor for me.  Heh.
