59ers

A lot has happened in the past two weeks here, but my mind's been so scattered I haven't been able to put it down on paper. Last week was really stressful, but God pulled me through. He kept pointing me to Matthew 14:31 - "You of litle faith. Why did you doubt?" I have no idea.

Easter weekend was amazing - worship and communion and basking in His love. I've learned that worship is more than standing in a pew and singing. The Greek word for worship, I'm told, actually describes a body position. And three times in Mark 5, people come up to Jesus and fall - literally - at His feet. One day every knee will bow. Why not start now?

Today, we got to hear from a four members of the class of 1959: the first General Officer to graduate from the Academy, the first graduate to enter space, a test pilot who flew 55 different planes, and the first All-American. They told us how they got in trouble, how they learned to lead, and where they went after graduation. Good stuff.

"Get to know the right people. Get to know people you can count on... and people who can count on you." - Mr. Siteman, the first All-American

    — Because someday, it will count. For them, or for you. Like when you are in the hospital with a dislocated shoulder! :)
