tootsie shout out at the stone!!

lct and i loooooove our church. the two people that immediately drew us in were the preacher (matt carter) and our favorite band member (jimmy mcneal). jimmy gets us going every single week during praise and worship. i mean just look at him...how could you not want to raise those hands and sing your heart out with this guy?? we have been very fortunate to have met him half a dozen times and don't worry, he is well aware of our obsession. however, he would probably think it a tad weird to see his pic on our blog.... oh well.

so back to the convo at hand... we got a major life giggle this past sunday night when matty c was discussing spiritual gifts and drove it home with this verse...

"Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. If the foot should say, 'Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,' it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body."
-I Cor 12:14-15

as if we needed more confirmation on the absolute necessity and importance of our feet... Jesus even agrees. so the Lord spoke thru matt and honestly and truly, he gave an awesome message. there were several great points, but more than anything he challenged us to FIGURE OUT what our "spiritual gift" is (aka the supernatural calling the Lord has specifically for you on this Earth) and then GET IN THE GAME. we can't assume someone else who seems to be better "gifted" is going to make sure others know of His life-changing, all-encompassing, unconditional love and grace... it is up to individual believers to make His kingdom alive here. this isn't an insignificant thing. people's lives are on the line. and it is the Holy Spirit's use of our time, our money, our administration skills, our creativity, our encouragement, our feet... that's going to make the difference. i'm just praying this truth becomes active in my life and doesn't just go in one ear and out the other.

ok, so not every one of my posts is going to be so serious and Biblical. but please, i couldn't let that blatant reference to cankles & petikei go without notice!! if you have about 30 minutes and want to hear for yourself, you can listen to it by clicking here.

also, get ready because we have a VERY important person we will be introducing you to soon. and it is going to be hilarious, i promise :) L, let's get on that this weekend, k?

and i will leave you with this tid-bit... i got a big 'ol chunk of skin scalpeled out of me today. talk about holy mole-y. not melanoma, but could've turned into it eventually. ugh. it hurts. (thanks mom and dad, for taking care of your daughter who is in her late-20's...) i have no idea what i am supposed to do with my self and my life this summer. i hope and pray i can still find it in me to go on living while i'm slathering on spf 110, trying to act normal underneath a silly, wide-brimmed hat. there was one highlight though- my dermie said my scar (from the last 'procedure') looked better than any she had ever seen!!!! i'm a miraculous healer. wait. now that i think about it, healing is a spiritual. gift. wow... we have come full circle, haven't we? i think i just fell in love with blogging! k bye.
