What a cool day today was. I started out by waking up at 3 this morning (not the cool part) and couldn't go back to sleep (again, not the cool part). By the time I got to the church I was feeling much better. We got through sound check and it was one of those mornings where I knew that even though we didn't have a great sound check, things would be alright. And it was. We had a really great morning, and people were singing. When the service was over, I had to get to the sanctuary and sing the special. When I got to the sanctuary, I was blown away by the men of the choir, as they sang one of my favorite hymns, "Great is Thy Faithfulness". It was really cool.

The rest of this day has been a day of rest while keeping my wife outside playing in the dirt. Now I know this sounds crazy for mother's day, but you see my wife is happiest when she is out working in her flower beds. It was great for her.

I will try to write tomorrow.

See you in His presence...

You will never guess what I am doing. I am waiting for church to start on the internet. For the last few weeks I have been tuning in to on Saturday night and listening and watching their internet campus. If you want to see what multi site ministry is for the connected generation, you should go there. They have rockin worship, and the message is always well done. The effort that goes into putting every weekend together is tremendous. The video quality is very good and the audio is mixed well. As a worship leader/designer, I enjoy being able to worship and only worship.

It is starting, I will see you in His presence...

Now, don't fall out. But this is my second post in 2 days. I sat through the "Maximum Impact" conference today. It was an enjoyable time for the first 1/3 and the last 1/3. The highlight was a talk by Malcolm Gladwell. He has written a book called "Blink", about the relying on your initial gut reaction in leadership. It was very liberating for me. I tend to rely on my first thought.

I am heading down to Fountain Square tonight to sing at the chili cookoff. I am not sure what to expect when I get there. I am not a big fan of singing outside, but...

Anyway. I will try to be back later.

See you in His presence...

Good morning,

I feel like I need to re-introduce myself after being silent for so long. I have been really busy lately and it is good to breathe for a minute. I just wanted to say that I am having an echo cardiogram to look at my aortic valve. I have a bi-cuspid valve, which is not a big deal except that it means that I am a little more likely to need a valve replacement in the future. I am not real sure how I feel about this today. I had a birthday since we last talked, (I turned 41) that kind of bothered me a little. I don't know why it did, but it did. Anyway...

I am going to try and be better about posting. I will let you know what happens with the echo.

See you in His presence...
