Burning Bushes

Have you seen any burning bushes lately? That was Ben's sermon topic for his first sermon, at his new church in Greensboro and it was a huge success. The scripture was from Exodus 3:1-12 , and he talked about his personal call to the ministry along with Moses' call to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. No burning bushes for Ben, but he did answer God's call with, "Hear I am, Lord"! And that is a BLESSING indeed for this proud MOM!
We got a grand tour of the church after the service and this is a picture of Ben's new office. I wonder how long his desk will stay that clean... not long if he's anything like his mom. I look forward to many more sermons, as God continues to bless Ben's life richly.

Yes Cris, it's true... I hate to admit it but I'm a "slaker stacker"... I put everything in piles hoping to stay on top of things but I then end up with pile after pile after pile! I hope Ben does better.

Those are the kinds of moments that just bless a Mom's heart beyond anything she can express. I'm proud of him with you Nancy.

Linda~ Thanks for your kind comments. Ben has worked hard to get to this point but all of the glory goes to God. I feel honored to be his mom.

Tammy~ It still puts a smile on my face when I go to my own blog and see Ben sitting in his new office. Thanks for your kind comments.

What fun to see our kids in their homes, jobs etc! I always have a need to see them when they move so I can know where they are! I know you're proud and well you should be.

I loved your post below too with the feet, too cute!

Hi Gail~ I have that strong desire to "SEE" with my own eyes. I guess I can't feel comfortable until I know everything is okay and seeing is believing. It also gives me a visual that I'm comfortable with, as I think of them during the day. I can just see Ben sitting in that office or see Katherine at the front of her classroom. Thanks for the comment- it helped me see how strong my desire is to "see" for myself.

Thank you for coming and visiting my blog. You are right, the picture is Colorado. We were in the Rocky Mountain National Park looking at Longs Peak.

What a blessing indeed! I know how excited I am when I hear my nephew speak - I can't imagine the joy of seeing your son up there in the pulpit.

Wow! This is a landmark Sunday message! You must be proud in all the best and proper uses of the term.
Enjoyed reading hear tonight. I was behind. Liked the "Old foots" story. Isn't it funny the story behind nick names. My daughter Kim called Julie's mom in Kansas "Grandma Horsey" (they had horses)my mom "Grandma Teeth Come Out" because she once saw my mom early in the morning with her dentures out and never forgot it. Mom didn't mind.

Dawn~ It's good to hear from you. I had been worried about you this week after your stressful weekend! Thanks for stopping by and of your kind words.

Tom~ You know how cautious I am about using the word PRIDE but you phrased it just right! Thank you for that consideration and your kind words. It was a great weekend full of many "firsts".

Those grandma names have me worried a little. I wonder what my grands will come up with. Oh well, I'll just be so delighted to have them that I'll take anything they call me. Have a great weekend!
