First Plane Ride

Well, I took Summer and the kids to the airport this morning. They wouldn't let me through to help get the kids through security. It was kind of sad. I can't wait to hear how my kids' first airplane ride is. I didn't fly until I was a teenager, but my kids are flying when they are 3 months, 2, and 3. The world has changed.

It is Administrative Professional's day. Thank God for Administrative Assistants. Lesli is my assistant and she keeps me in shape. A minister can only be as good as his assistant enables him to be.

Think of some great ministers. Mike Cope, Jeff Walling, Lynn Anderson, Chris Siedman, Rubel Shelley, or Rick Atchley? I guaruntee that they aren't capable of doing what they do with out a great assistant. Many thanks for all those in supportive roles in churches, especially to Lesli, Fran, and Maria who work at Preston Road.

Pray for Summer!!!

Well, Wednesday, Summer is flying with our 3 children to Nashville. Our children have never flown before. Pray for her patience and our children. The only people in our family to see Rebekah besides photographs is my mom and Summer's mom. Summer is going to spend a week with my family and a week with hers to show our new little one off. In the meantime, I will be going to Six Flags with the Praise Team and flying to Pepperdine for the lectures.

How about this for a Praise Team name: "One Voice" One of our praise team members came up with this and I like it. It communicates well and has a nice ring to it. I can see lots of potential as well for logo design as well. Let me know what you think. There are other suggestions, but this one seems to have risen to the top so far.

I love my new keyboard. It is a Kawai ES3. It rocks. It has one of the best piano sounds and String/Piano combo I've heard. It also has a USB cable that I can hook into my computer. I haven't tried that yet, but plan on doing that soon.

That is what is on my mind at the moment. Have a blessed Day.

Family at Easter Posted by Hello

Tuesday, April 05, 2005

I finally posted again! Yeah!

Sorry it has been so long. Things have been unsually busy the past several weeks. Everything from contests to Easter, to computer problems to lots of meetings, but all is good.

Easter was excellent. We had one of our best worship times then. There were two baptisms which is awesome.

The coolest thing is that the elders have approved me to get the sound system updated. I've already met with one company yesterday and plan on meeting with another today and another next week. It is exciting because I know what we need and I can prioritize what these guys propose and sift out all of the fluff they may want to sell us.

Rebeckah is doing great. She is now on a schedule where she goes to bed at 10:30 wakes up at 4:00 to eat and then sleeps till around 7:00-7:30. That is much better than waking up 3 times a night to feed her.

Micah has started speech therapy. He goes to school on Tuesday and Thursday. Hopefully they can work with his stuttering and get it under control by the time he starts kindegarden.

Anna has started potty training. She only had one accident yesterday and that was during a nap. This morning she was dry and got up and used the potty. Yeah. It looks like less diapers to buy. That is always a good thing. She has also given her pacifier to Rebekah, "so she things" so the past two days she has been without a pacifier. She is growing up.

My administrative assistant's husband has recently arrived back home from Kuwait. Ryan is doing well and adjusting to normal life again. Thanks Ryan for what you did for your country.

Well, that's about it for now. Hopefully I can post more often in the future.
