Covenant Keeper

It’s been raining non-stop in South Florida, which is kind of nice, because it gives us a nice break from the heat…and it’s definitely needed. When Mike and I were driving home from the most awkward YFC event ever, we saw this rainbow.

I love rainbows. It reminds me that God is a covenant keeper. He was faithful to complete his promises to Abraham, even when Abraham and Sarah tried to thwart His plans. He was faithful to Noah, even when he got drunk and naked. He’s faithful in keeping his promise to never flood the earth again. He’s faithful to keep interceding for us on our behalf, even though we are nothing. We have the imputed righteousness of God. We are called saints, because of who Jesus is and what He did for us on the cross. We are covenant members of the Great High Priest, who is able to breathe life into creation, and make marvelous things for us to encounter..even on a boring drive home.

I am not thankful enough for being able to know Jesus. He is definitely worthy to be praised.

Longing for Football Season..

June 15, 2008 at 5:02 am | Posted in Sports | 3 Comments

Bring on the chicken wings and beer…I’m ready for college football season to start!! I’m definitely over basketball season and the Lakers/Celtics matchup. I need Tebow and Urban to bring a bright smile to my face. I think that this is going to be a big year for Gator football. Tebow is a seasoned vet now, and we have a brand new defensive line-up that should be much better than last year! 

The game that I’m most looking forward to this year is the Miami/Florida game. Last time these two teams matched up…it was New Years Eve, and Miami beat us, ruining the Brunjes’ New Years Eve party. It will be fun to beat Miami in the Swamp. I just can’t wait.

Go Gators!!

Fishing is Fun!

 You ever have one of those days when you wake up and realize that you live in one of the most beautiful places on earth? Today was one of those days for me..Me and my dad went Fishing in Jupiter on the Blue Heron drift boat. The weather was gorgeous. The water was Bahama like-crystal blue. It was incredible. 

I caught two fish! I caught a cobia fish…which was extremely heavy. My dad helped me hold the pole while I reeled it in. It took forever and now my arms are definitely sore. The second fish I caught was a rainbow runner which was much easier to manage. Oh crap..Now I just realized that I left dead fish in my car. I need to get that asap.

Here’s some pics from the day…

I Love The Summer!!

Summer is so much fun. I love playing outside. Tonight we had a barbeque with our young adult small group. I realized tonight, that I do not spend enough time outside..and really, I don’t spend enough time just enjoying the simple things in life. When you work all the time, it’s easy to get caught up in all of the mundane things of life…such as: paying bills, planning your day, grocery shopping, blah blah blah… Sometimes you need to just go outside and remember what it was like to be a little kid. To just play outside for hours on end until your mom calls you in for supper. haha.

By the way check out Dan Sturgis in this picture…I wish I could jump this high.
