Personal Retreat ‘07

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

I am heading out for a one day personal retreat today.

Before I go out to the OIL Conference to speak, I wanted to spend some time in prayer and personal reflection.

I realized that 2006 was a busy year for me.

I just want to make sure that 2007 starts off with basking in His Presence so that I can hear His voice.

I am reminded of Exodus 33:15 when Moses said to God, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”

This is how I am feeling.

I do not want God to send me into 2007 unless His Presence goes with me.

New Year’s Day ‘07

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

Yesterday, our family had some of our staff and executive team members over for our traditional New Year’s Day lunch (now we are in our 9th year). It was pretty funny looking at the food table. We had the international flavors of food on display – Korean, Mexican, American, and some fusion-oriented stuff.

The whole day started off by trying to teach the kids how to say, “Happy New Year” in Korean so that they can call their grandparents and greet them in the mother-tongue. In Korean it is, “sae hae bok mahn-hi ba-duh-sae-yo.” It was hilarious… you should have seen Elliot. He kept on repeating the 9 syllable phrase over and over again. When he thought he got it down pat, he kept on saying, “Hurry up daddy and call now!” (while under his breath he kept on repeating, “Sae hae bok mahn-hi ba-duh-sae-yo”)… haha!

After the game and then some cleaning, we gathered together as a family and prayed to close out the first day of the new year.

It was a good way to start off the new year (minus the football game).
