Why I Write These:
These are written in honor of my grandfather, Leon Milton Buttermore, who has a memory that I am envious of, and I hope that by doing this I am able to be the kind of man who starts to treasure the things given him.
Godly thought of the day:
Luke 3:37 says: “the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.”
It’s late. Super quick thoughts tonight. Very interesting that Adam is listed as “the son of God” right here. Sets up well the Gospel message that Adam was the man who failed and who brought death. Jesus is the son of God who brings life and victory.
Favorite meeting of the day:
No meetings today.
Hardest part of my day:
Saying goodbye to everyone like Ethan Penner, Ethan Bolthouse, and Grant Bruner. Not sure what the next time I’ll see them will be.
Favorite moment of the day:
Eating an All-American BBQ Feast at Famous Dave’s with a bunch of people.
What was the weather like today?:
Rainy and then humid as I got south. Icky.

Probably was annoying at some point, but not a lot of opportunities for unfaithfulness today, to be honest.
