So who had a good Independence Day? I hope everyone did.
Michelle and I had planned to BBQ and then head to the Grizzlie’s game Friday for some baseball and fireworks. So I fired up the grill and created what I would call the preeminent example of fine hamburger dining. It was quite delicious, and I masterfully paired it with Michelle’s potato salad and a can of that timeless American standard; Pork ‘n’ Beans.
I have to say that there is no more notable meal than the backyard 4th of July BBQ. And in fact, I would go so far as to propose that the Last Supper actually took place on the 4th of July, and was prepared on a Weber BBQ. I can’t find that in the Bible anywhere, but it’s my theory.
Anyway, after chowing down this pinnacle of American culinary delights, we just didn’t have the willpower to actually get up, and expend the energy to go somewhere. So we skipped the game and chilled out for the rest of the day.
Saturday was uneventful, but Sunday…. what a day. I played at church this weekend. The first time in months, and I gotta say, it felt really good. I mean really, really good. I’ve been praying literally every single day for healing in my wrist, and I had booked this weekend with Paul (the music director, not the famous apostle) months ago, and so I just decided to go for it. And I’m glad I did. My wrist is actually no worse from playing and I had the best time jamming with everyone in the band and worshiping with the crowd. Good times man.
Then after church a bunch of us went over to Aron’s house and watched the UFC fights. The Jackson / Griffin fight was really good and went to a decision which nobody expected. Great fight with some great people.
So the weekend was a winner. I hope everyone had a good one. God bless!
