Good morning,

I am finally back to work after being at home sick for 3 days. I just need to say that I hate being sick. I am a big baby. I don't do sick well. Anyway...

My oldest son left today to go through the enlistment process in Nashville. What a wierd feeling this is, to have him gone and know that he is making a career choice that is very grown up. I am very proud of him. Not many 17 year olds know what they want to do this weekend, let alone for the rest of their lives. He will make a great soldier.

I will let you know how it goes later.

See you in His presence...

Good morning,

As I sit here typing, I am wondering why I got so up set over the last 3 working days because we didn't have access to the Internet. I didn't realize how dependent on my connection to the internet I really am. I just about lost my mind when I couldn't check my email, or go looking for just the right video ( what I found, didn't work. we will work that out in therapy later).

Completely unrelated to the above sadness, I haven't slept well since Friday. I am not sure what is the problem. This morning I awoke from a very restless night of pseudo-sleep with my shoulder really hurting and a brain fog befitting me of my former life. I don't know... just pray that tonight, I will sleep hard. Tomorrow is my longest day of the month, due to Kid's Zone Live and rehearsal afterward. Once I get through that, I should be good, though.

I will write more later.

See you in His presence...

This morning I experienced my first Methodist funeral. Celia Lovell was a lovely lady that just so happened to be one of the first people that I visited in the hospital after coming on staff here at Broadway. While I don't know that family that well, I got a sense of great love and family from the conversation that I heard and was a part of. This funeral was very honoring and peaceful. I was blessed to be a part of it. As I look to the inevitable coming funeral of my sweet mother (she is still alive, but with Alzheimer's disease), I hope that hers is as honoring and peaceful.

Rest in peace Miss Celia, and enjoy being in His presence.

Good morning,

As I sit here in a little coffee shop close to my house, I have found myself looking forward to some of the worship things that are coming in the future. My friend Jon Baldwin will be leading worship on February 4th, because I will be preaching that morning in all 3 services. I am both nervous and excited about that. This will be my first time in the pulpit at the Melrose campus. I am also looking forward to March 7th, because we will be doing a night of worship that will include letting our congregation pick some of their favorite worship songs. We will be polling the congregation and hopefully they will give us some examples of why the songs they choose speak to them. We will integrate some of those stories into the night as well.

I better get to work. I am doing the sound design for the state Jr. Miss pageant next weekend and I need to tweak some of the cuts and such. Have a great day.

See you in His presence...
