Good to Be Back

It's so good to be back--

1. From the flu. It knocked Julie + me down hard for 8-10 days and then took another week or so to feel like I'm back to what passes for normal.
2. From our first Pastors Retreat in too long. We got some great work and planning done. But, just as important, we got to get away and play some too. I am so blessed to work alongside some of the most gifted, loyal, godly men. Also, we're incredibly grateful to Mike + Holly Gardner for hosting us at San Miguel Ranch & Lodge just outside of Uvalde, TX. What an incredible place and incredible people!
3. From a blogging hiatus. It's been a wild few weeks to kick off 2009 and posting was just one of those things that got pushed to the back burner. We've got some changes coming in the next couple of weeks to macrichard.com that are going to be sweet brown sugar.

Can't wait for worship tomorrow--in preparing for the message, I've been so encouraged by the fact that God is a warrior who fights for us. Make sure you're a part of worship tomorrow either at the Mother Ship in Bee Cave or at LHC Downtown. And bring someone with you who needs to know that God is on their side.
