Preacher Party Time!
It's 8:15 on the east coast -- I'm getting a slow start this morning. The coffee's on, I'm dressed for a wedding (panty hose this early in the morning should be illegal) and a fixin' to go. Mother-in-law-zilla awaits.
Later today: sermon time!
I'm going with the Luke 12:13-21 text, especially this bit: "And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God.”
That little bit where the dude is talking to himself "And I will say to my soul, 'Soul...'" -- How many times have we done this? Can YOU say rationalization? Do you talk yourself into things maybe you shouldn't do?
Off to the wedding! I'll be back to pass out slices of leftover cake....
