Firefighter Appreciation Day

This summer, Christ Journey began an attempt to have a regularly scheduled time of worship through service. It's been a little hit-or-miss...but we have certainly learned a lot and done some great things in the process.

This week is National Fire Prevention Week, so one of our friends suggested that we honor some local firefighters. Then another friend went ahead and made the call to arrange a time and place for us to do just that. So we visited Burleson Fire Station #1 yesterday.

These pictures are mostly of my kiddos, but you can see lots more of our Christ Journey friends on our facebook page.

We washed one of the trucks,dried the truck,swept the bay,and cleaned pretty much the entire work and living areas.It was fun to see just how big the fire truck (and even just the tires!) were compared to our kiddos.Then we ate lunch together,and enjoyed the beautiful weather.It was a wonderful way to worship yesterday, serving and fellowshipping with our friends and family!

I enjoyed your chronicle...but, of course, had to laugh out loud at your last picture...sweet little Josiah firefighter to the rescue!

Gotta say I know God was glorified in your service and worship!
