The Makings of A Good Weekend

Today I received an advance copy of Bill Perkins’ new book Six Battles Every Man Must Win. That put finishing touch on what I am hoping will be a very relaxing weekend. The plan is to spend plenty of time on the couch. I’ll be watching a bit of golf, watching a bit of March Madness (every March I try and ultimately fail to learn to like basketball), sipping Coke and reading my new book. If they happen to televise a bit of Bluejays spring training action it will make this weekend as perfect as a weekend without football can be.

And never fear, I’ll be sure to get off the couch to spend some time with the family!

I have a couple of book reviews to write and publish and will, of course, be continuing my study of Proverbs.

Note to Bill Perkins – I’m a Web designer. Let’s talk about your site! 😉

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…
