Purpose Driven Life

We had been doing a chapter of Purpose Driven each week but stopped for summer. People were coming and going all summer and it's a challenge to work around T & J's work schedules. Ty even works Sunday afternoons. Today the first load of people home took the kayaks and left for the bay. Jessica and I waited for Ty to get home from his church. He took his work clothes to the bay so he could go straight to work from there.

Jessica grilled steaks.

We read chapter 27 today about overcoming temptation. Warren says most people think too much about the temptation-- "I will not do so and so" instead of distracting themselves by refocusing on something else. The key to breaking addictions/bad habits is through accountability and small group involvement. Not sure if I totally agree with him but he probably knows what he's talking about.

Ty in a tree. He only stayed an hour and had to leave for work.

Jasmine on the bars. I love to see her do this because she has some muscle weakness on her left side. She reached forward each time with her right arm but still had to hold on with the left.

Rick and Jasmine
