Well, we braved the heat and the crowds, and took the kids downtown to meet Bob and Larry. The real bob and larry.

We had a fun day, even if our timing was off and we missed all of the bmx show, and only got to see bob and larry for about 5 minutes. There was still so many other things to do that the kids didn't even notice.

However, my very observant son did notice one thing...that it was not the real bob and larry that we saw. He said that it was just someone in a costume because he could see the legs. So I said, "I thought bob and larry were just pretend." He said, "No, they are real, but that wasn't them, because they dont have legs." .....and we thought believing in Santa was the least of our worries.....

(For those of you who are. thinking what are you talking about....Bob and Larry are from the cartoon Veggie Tales. They are a cucumber and a tomato, and yes, in the cartoon the do not have legs or arms. City Fest was this big festival/concert downtown put on by Luis Palau.)

God's Will, Agreement and Alignment

Today's message---the whole series of the past few weeks has been awesome. Pastor (aka Dad) has been preaching on the Will of God, Agreement and Alignment. It has really challenged me ask the Holy Spirit to examine me, and show me the areas of my life that are out of line, and those areas that I need to come into agreement with God about.

Durning Cleansing Streams (a class on deliverance) in college we learned about proper alignment, authority, and submission. There was a simple prayer that was taught that I used to say daily. I have gotten out of the habit, but was remined today how powerful and important those words and the action behind them are.

Lord, I choose to walk in agreement and alingment with You and Your Will today. I choose to be yoked with you. Show me those things that would keep me from being in agreement and alignment with you. I recognize that I am dependant on your grace and strength in order to do this. In the Name of Jesus, I command my body to submit to my soul, my soul to submit to my spirit, and my spirit submit to the Spirit of God. AMEN!
