Welcome Back Pastor Steve

There are a lot of changes going on in my life right now. I got my new house and all the changes that come with owning your first house. As I told you before, the pastor of my church left back in the spring. This weekend we where presented with a perspective Senior Pastor to vote on as a church body. When the announcement was made last Sunday, many people where excited to hear the good news. Steve Scoggins, our pastor from 1992 to 2001, was the prospect. He left 13 years ago to become the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Opelika, Alabama. He has received God's calling to come back to Hendersonville First Baptist Church.

Pastor Steve had several meetings with the church staff and the congregation this past week. He preached all three services this morning. At the end of the services the members of Hendersonville First Baptist voted to call Steve Scoggins as our Senior Pastor once again. I am looking forward to him being our pastor again, I grew a lot spiritually under the teaching of Pastor Steve. I cannot wait to see how God grows me under Pastor Steve again.

Hendersonville First Baptist Church has been blessed with many great men of God to serve as Pastor. Pastor Steve is not the first to leave and return to be the pastor a second time. I am sure the church will continue to grow under Pastor Steve leadership because of his heart for God and God's People.

Starting To Look Like A Home

Last weekend, I got all my stuff moved out of my old place and moved to my new house. I cleaned the old place a little and turned the keys in on Monday. This weekend, we plan to get the rest of my mom's stuff out of her apartment. Mom has done most of the organizing in the new house. I got most of my office setup and working on putting the books from my online store on the shelves.

I am loving living in my new house. It is nice and quiet in the neighborhood. It is so nice not to hear dogs barking at everything that moves or people arguing. At the new house, I may here a dog during the day but not all the time. Just hearing the noise of people coming and going home and trucks making deliveries. It is so nice to be able to go outside and relax and enjoy the quietness.

I hope to get back to posting regularly on the blog next week. I hope to have everything setup this weekend at the new house.

First Night In The New House

It has been a busy week getting the house ready and moving stuff. My brother, Tim helped me move some of the bigger stuff to day and will help me in the morning get the rest of the big stuff from mom's old place.

I am glad I got the bed over to the new house so I can sleep here tonight. I gave Jo Anne and her dad a tour of the new house over Skype. I cannot wait to get Jo Anne here. I sorry for the short post but I am tired and going to take my rest now. Another long day ahead tomorrow. The good thing is it will start in the new house.
