Why the name "bLog in Your Own Eye"?

Matthew 7:3 - 5 "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

We should all endeavor to think rightly about ourselves and graciously about one another. We all have specks and logs in our eyes.

Missions Weekend

This weekend was Missions Weekend at my Church. It was awesome. We had two missionary families, one soon heading to Bulgaria, the other working in Sweden. We also were able to Skype with some missionaries in other countries who weren't in the states this year. That was a neat experience too. So on Friday night, we had a dinner at church and had the missionaries speak. I helped a little with child-care so I didn't get to hear everything they said, but what I heard was neat. It really does take a lot to be missionaries, and I admire them for all they do. On Saturday, we had a picnic lunch which was kinda fun-ish, we didn't really do that much but that's OK. Then this morning we had a Continental breakfast at Church then we Skyped with some other missionaries. The missionary from Sweden preached a marvelous sermon that I enjoyed a lot. The same man is married to a Swedish lady who is very nice as well. AND....they have ten kids. Yes, ten. They beat the Browns by two. ;) Plus, the Mom is pregnant again. So it was really cool meeting them. We had lunch with them afterwords too which was a bit crazy with all those kids, but still enjoyable. And we found out that family is coming back to Charleston to visit a different supporting church and we're hoping we can hook up with them again. :) Overall, a very fun weekend, but very busy as well. I don't think I'm ready to start another week yet....
