We finished up a fun summer, full of camps. (Well, I have a week of football camp coming up.) Thankful for all the support we had, and all the people we got to work with!
When I wasn't running around with kids, I was coming across some good thoughts on Twitter. Here are some of my favorite tweets, from y'all and from me.
You can follow me at @EspinosaJoey.
Y'all's@LeadersServe: Great leaders empower others to manage today & focus their attention on the future.
@BryceAshlinMayo: When we serve food to the poor but don't eat with them, we miss the point.
@LosWhit: May today's pulpits not be filled with talks on 5 steps to better marriages/lives/happiness/ect and instead be filled with the name of Jesus
@GoNasty15: Falling down is a part of life. Getting back up is living.
@Greg_Boyd: If you know "Jesus Christ & him crucified" (I Cor 2:2), you know all you REALLY need to know about God, yourself, other people & creation!
@PaulTripp: Since the DNA of sin is selfishness (puts you in bondage to you), the work of grace is to rescue you from you.
@IamSecond: #Life is too short to not #forgive.
@TrippCrosby: Who's with me in starting a National Take Someone You Disagree with To Lunch Day?

Don't rejoice in good circumstances. Rejoice in the One who gave you that good circumstance.
I, too, used to think I was a perfect parent. Until I had my 2nd (& 3rd) child. http://buff.ly/1b3nawq #parenting
Thankful for the men from @gracechurchsc who are serving at the prison in #AllendaleSC today. Looking forward to future ministry with them!

Teenager: "Coach, your wife is beautiful." Me: "I know. Why do you think I asked her to marry me?" // 14 years ago, I asked, & she said yes.
This is why we need mentors! "RT @FatherlessBook: 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes"
