Another Emmaus Weekend…

What an Awesome weekend for Men’s Walk #56 at the Kaiserhoff Retreat Center in Tomball, TX.  I was truly blessed to be able to serve as the Head Agape Servant on this past weekend’s walk.  Serving and giving as a personal sacrifice of my time is a true pleasure for me.  I always enjoy giving back and this weekend was no exception, which is the reason why I do it.

The testimonies from the men on Sunday were full of joy and love and tears were shed by all including myself.  I just love to hear the testimonies and I find that they are probably my favorite part of the weekend.  Hearing the testimonies and knowing that they’re experience was full makes it all worth it.

De Colores!!

in times of need

Am I my brother’s keeper?  Yes I am.  That should be our answer when we go out to serve or think about serving.  We should be in the field helping and giving and sharing. 

When asked that question…what is your answer?

another thursday

This year has flown by so far.  I can’t believe it’s already April and the 10 days into it as well.  It’s been a good year so far and I can’t complain.  I just finished up working an economics class for Junior Achievement.  This was because my company partners with JA to help students learn more about business and that the potential is in the students to dream big and reach their goals.  For me, it’s fulfilling and this is my second year doing it too.  It’s all about giving back to the community!

So, we have one trip under our belts for the year as well.  Next, were off to Italy.  I’m so excited about that one because it will be a 10 day trip and should be full of fun and excitement.  I can’t wait to see the Coliseum in person.  We’re going to Rome, Florence and Venice.  It’s going to be a blast and I can’t WAIT!!!

Work is going alright as well.  I haven’t been writing so much, because work has been mad crazy lately.  It’s been eating up my days and hours.  I know that it’s a good thing to stay busy, but not too busy.  Hey, I just remembered another acronym I need to add. B-U-S-Y: Being under Satan’s Yoke and that’s never good.  I have been focusing on God alot and keeping my prayer life healthy.  I am reading His word and staying in it often too. 

I’m looking forward to next weekend as well.  That’s when I will serve on a men’t weekend retreat that I’ve posted about called the “Walk to Emmaus”   It’s gonna be a spirit filled weekend and a time to give and focus on nothing but Jesus.  I love serving on these weekends and I always get back more than I ever put in, because you can never out give God.  Praise Him and have a blessed week!
