It was very special to Tricia and I to have our family over today for a cookout and house blessing. I told Tricia a while ago that our next house would receive a formal blessing. I have done a house blessing for others before but never formally for ourselves. Today was great. Hearing my family participate in a response reading/litany was cool. Well, it is blessed. May God use our new home for effective ministry, first to our family, then to others!
