Italy is tiring

22 08 2009

Been having an awesome time on holidays so far. We’ve spent 3 nights in Rome and we arrived today in Florence.
So much to see in Rome and we got around most places by foot, so it is pretty exhausting. It’s also been 36-40 degrees each day as Italy swelters in a heat wave. Very draining.
Unfortunately, I’ve come down sick. Blocked sinus, sore throat, cough. Hope it goes away soon.

Catch you on the flip side…

About to crawl into bed for an early night. We have a 4:15 wake up tomorrow morning to get to the airport in time for out 7:30 flight.

Super excited! Will try to keep you updated via free wifi while we are gone.


Romans and Zechariah

16 08 2009

Last day of church today for a little while. I don’t know how I will go for 5 weeks without church and bible study. Never really tried before!

At bible study this morning, we looked at chapter 2 of Romans. I am looking forward to reading some more of it in Rome!

Something that struck me from Geoff Shead preaching on Zechariah this morning… Zech prophesied that in the Day of the Lord, God would pour out a spirit of contrition on his people. Contrition – Why is that a good thing? Because we are stuffed before God and we need his forgiveness. But before that, we need repentance. We need to come before God with a broken and contrite heart. Even for that bit, we need his help.
