charlie and i are ready for a real post! let us just get you a little caught up on what is going on with some visual aids:
we both love working at starbucks. perks: as many drinks as you want on shift, a free pound of coffee or tin of tea each week (times 2), amazing people to work with, friendly regular customers, and there is no pressure-its not rocket science, just coffee....
lifegroup! a couple of weeks ago our lifegroup hosted a cook out at a near park. we all invited people to join us for food and fellowship. our college lifegroup is lead by ashley binns, emily hanes, and matt larson-some of our great friends from church. lifegroup is about looking up (to the Lord), looking in (having community with one another), and looking out (inviting others into salvation and our community). we seek to live out acts 2:42-47 "they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. and all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. and the lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved." so that is what we do-eat together, pray together, play together, share the good news with the lost, and provide for each others' needs. its so beautiful!
date night :) charlie and i get to eat dinner together nearly every night, but some nights are more special than others. we try to have at least one date night a week and go out for special food and have great conversation. this is at one of our favorite local places "clay pot"-lots of asain variety and sometimes we sit at tiny tables on the floor on cushions.
