Covenant College 50th Commencement

Last weekend Ken and I were back on Lookout Mountain. We flew east to see our dear little Tami graduate, which she did (Omedeto!).

Highlights included staying at the Mehne's comfortable hotel, having breakfast at Cracker Barrel with the Cigna gang, eating at various Chattanooga establishments with various important people, getting a tour of Andy Montgomery's wicked-cool St. Elmo house, and of course, worshipping at Cornerstone Church on Sunday with all of our old friends, plus Elder Scott & Joyce, Dennis & Karen Fullalove, and some other SF-peeps.

Lydia and Bruce - you were seriously missed by not a few people. Basically, all of the Loft and Damien say hi. Oh, and Lyd, did you know that you are in Charissa's wedding? :)

Just like anywhere I visit, I wanted to just move to the Noog the entire time I was there. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. It felt so homey!! But then I remembered how I feel about SF, not to mention how I always love Washington so much whenever I am there. So... whatever.

P.S. - I don't put recipes on my blog. ;) But if you want a good cookie, check out Martha Stewart's Lime Flowers. They are soo good. You can probably find them on www.marthastewartliving.com ... let me know if you can't find it and want the recipe and I will type it out for you.

Farewell, Pastor Bob

Our dear Pastor Bob Y. Eckardt has announced that it is time for his family to relocate to Dayton, Ohio, where he'll be serving as pastor of Redeemer OPC. Cornerstone just got the news, so no search has started for a new pastor. The church is in the Lord's hands... we shall see where it goes from here.

Andy Montgomery said, "Too bad Ken isn't finished with seminary already." Naturally I was complimented, and agreed... it is too bad. Wouldn't that be fun?! But then I started to hyperventilate. Can you imagine? Ken, the pastor of an established congregation with elders old enough to be his father?
