"...I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air..."

I hope everyone had a fun and happy 4th of July. This year was the first in I think 3 years that Carl and I were together. It's amazing having my husband home all of the time! I thought I would give a quick church search update, since I know that I have been mentioning this as a prayer request. We have found a church that we are going to try for a month, and then decide. We realize that we will never find a Westside again, but we still want to find the best. This church seems to be the best among our choices, with many of the qualities we are looking for (mainly sound preaching and doctrine). Who knew it could be so hard to find a church? We were spoiled at the last two places we lived, finding phenomenal churches (especially our last one). This church just happened to be the last on our list of churches to try (about 8 in all). So, we will keep you updated, but please continue to keep our search in your prayers. We are excited to see where and what God is going to use us for here.
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. I COR 9: 24-27
