This is always a tough choice for me

Mama D's Selections or Queenella???

Usually I only have to worry about the fresh choice of creek-washed or stump-beat.

I'll have ask Ralph about this one.

Making the most

In the book of Ephesians in the Bible, the writer Paul says to make the most of every opportunity...

Here's a great picture of that being lived out...

(Yes, those are two chicken boxes.)

I'll be putting on a black and white striped shirt shortly... These two are pretty competitive about their Phase 10.

The cumulative effect of getting up at 5:20 am

Or is it "affect"?

Yeah, the time-stamp says, 17:51. For the non-military, that's 5:51pm.

Oh, high school starts at 7:20am.

Faith Restored

It has been a LONG time since I had a 4-way stop in my daily drive. Now I go through this 4-way at the Grayson-New Hope and Chandler Rd. intersection at least a couple times a day.

I like it. Experiencing this 4-way is restoring my faith in people. People at the 4-way do things like take turns. They motion to each other, "no, you go next."

It's like a little dance. And it seems to brings out the best in folks.

What a mess

A cable modem, wireless router, wireless PCI adapter cards, Vista... Yuck...
How will all of this go together? This what we have become?

How I long for the good old days of C:>

Looks like I'm gonna have to call G-baby...

A Magical Night

God really, really,really does have a sense of humor. Really.

Let me start 30 years back. I'm in high school at Avondale High School in Decatur, GA. I am really enjoying this band that's playing at our dance. A band named Fragile. That's enough on that.

Flash forward to, say, 2005. I've been in ministry with this pretty cool dude who's the worship leader at the church I was serving. I've known for the six years we've been together that he played in a rock band before he became a Christ-Follower, but it's just now dawned on me that I've never asked him the name of his band...

Are you sensing how the 30 years are about to collide in this story?

Last night I had the opportunity to, well ROCK OUT to an awesome band at their 30 year reunion gig. Yep, Fragile. And yeah, they still got it.

Oh, and said worship leader is the hot one on the far left...

It's been a long week

It requires a lot of energy being nomads. "Place" is such a powerful word, especially when you're in between places.
