Being An Apostle


Happy Monday morning all and welcome to the last full week of January. The winter is passing by way too quickly!

Friday night Jilly and I headed to the city for supper! I had been craving Montana’s hard core and with Ryan gone to a “boys camp night” Jilly agreed to come to supper. We laughed so hard, had a couple pickled Caesars and ate WAY too much food. It was nice chatting and visiting!

At this household we are currently working on House Renovation Project Number 204…Well no, that’s an exaggeration but this is actually the LAST room of the house to be renovated so the end is near! 3 years later and the process of making my parents old house my own is almost over. And just in time for a wedding and a husband to move in! :-)

Saturday Dad and I worked all day at painting the new room and removing the old floorS it was a long process but the room is small and a little progress makes a big difference.

We parted ways but later I saw my Dad again at Gavan’s where we (and most of the town) gathered to celebrate with the soon to be husband and wife, Luke and Amanda!

I had fun chatting with the girls at the stag and was SO surprised when Ryan showed up! I wasn’t expecting him home till the next night!

Sunday morning I headed to church with Mom. Nancy, who I wrote about here, is our student minister. Nancy is also a blog reader and you can see some of her comments on alot of my blog posts! Nancy had me reflecting yesterday about being a follower of Jesus. I have mentioned on here before that I am a Christian. 

Nancy spoke yesterday about being a follower of Jesus. She mentioned myself, Jill’s and Stacy’s blogs and how us talking openly about about faith on blogs makes us apostles.

What is an apostle? Well, a Christian Apostle is someone who convey’s the “message”. Thus, a messenger in common translation. A messenger who who is “sent away” to tell about the good news of Jesus Christ.

At first I was taken aback. I know some people (AKA my parents) think blogging is silly. So, for Nancy to stand up in front of the whole congregation and mention how proud she was of us girls for openly praying and telling of our faith on our blogs was amazing.

I shook my head when she asked me if I knew I was an apostle. Of course, I never considered the words that I write on my blog about my faith to make me an apostle but I quickly learned otherwise.

I am a Christian, I am a follower of Jesus and now I have another title, I am an apostle too! Thank you Nancy for a wonderful sermon, it has really made me reflect.

After church, Mom and I joined the boys for breakfast and then after a long relaxing morning the renovations continued on for the remainder of the afternoon!

How was your weekend?
