Allie's Surgery

Allie's surgery went well. She will be in the hospital until about Friday and then have about 3 weeks at home recovering. They say that the 3 weeks of home recovery are the most crucial. Remember her in your prayer for the next month or so. I know the family would appreciate it.


To couch or not to couch....

That is the question.

This weekend, Summer and I found a great deal on a leather sectional couch. It is at Dillard's. It is a retail $3200 couch, but because it is missing the middle cusion conncecting the two sections, which we can order by the way, it is marked down to $900. It is the nicest leather couch that Summer and I have seen. Here is the catch. It is possible that the leather won't match exactly because each couch seems to have slightly different shades of the leahter, so it is possible to have a lightly off colored middle cusion. Is is still worth getting? Is leather a good thing to have with kids around? I do know that the couch and chair that we have has been abused by our children. The upside to leather is that it is easy to clean up and should hold up better with couch abuse from the children. I'm open to suggestions before we buy this thing.

Pray for a girl named Allie that goes to our church. She is one of our children in our children's ministry. She is having surgery this morning that seems to be fairly complicated. It seems that her ribs have grown in and they have to open her up to fix the problem. Please pause and pray for her as you read this today.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial day weekend. It is always good to relax over a holiday. Notice that my wife's blog is linked over to the right in my links section. Go check it out. She might have a good blog, but at least I capitalize my letters when I'm supposed to. hehe. Have a great day.

It's Hot in Texas

Who would think that it would be 95-100 degrees in May? It has been record setting days as far as temp. is concerned. Summer, the kids, and I went to the park on Saturday morning and the temp. in the shade was 92. Though the offical high was only 99, my van was reading 103 at times. When it gets that hot though it doesn't matter whether it is 99 or 103 it is just torture to be outside for very long. I don't guess I can complain though, Ryan my friend just got back from Kuwait and when he got there it was 130 during the day. I thought 100 is bad.

Congrats to Kacey Reynolds in being hired on as 4th Ave. C of C youth intern for the summer in Franklin, TN. I feel sorry for the kids. (just kidding or maybe not) Seriously, I know you will do a great job Kacey. I'm proud of you, though I'm a little nervous for the kids you will be influencing. Just remember, "You know what your problem is..." :)

I have all three proposals in for the sound at PRCC. Now I have to put a fine tooth comb through them and make a decision on what company to go with. This could prove to be a difficult job because no matter what, I want the sound to be top notch. I'm tired of mediocore sound systems that don't perform well no matter who is running the sound. I hope to remedy that problem. This is big job so pray that I am wise as I choose the company.

Congratulations to Scott Sager our minister in recieving his Doctorate of Ministry. What a great honor. I'm proud of you Scott. It seems that everyone has a higher degree than I do. Our office administrator Fran has a Masters of Theology. (very similar to an M. Div.) I do plan on starting back this Fall though, most likely at ACU. I'm kind of excited about finishing my Masters work. I already have 18 hours under my belt.

Good luck to two of my friends Phyllis and Stephen. Phyllis is spending the summer in South America, maybe Mexico, I can't remember for a mission camp and my friend Stephen is spending the summer in Sudan. This will be a dangerous place for Stephen to be so please pray for him as they scout out mission points in Sudan. Who knows, Stephen may actually blend in over there. (ok, that was extremely wishful thinking) Unfortunately I don't think that blend is in his nature. I can already picutre the tall toothpick of a man with sandals, long soccer socks with green stripes, long shorts and a bright green shirt that has something about cows on it. Nope, he won't ever blend in. Good luck in your mission. Godspeed to both of you.

Well, that's about it for today. Blessings to you all.

Where are we?

Pepperdine Lecutures were awesome. There was one session that impacted me the most. It was Rick Atchley and David Stone teaching about "Vital Signs of the Church." I posted the synopsis of it on www.worshipforum.com if you want to see what the session was about. here is a link: My synopsis is at the bottom of the page.

I have started doing vocal sessions with all of my praise team. So far they are going well. This gives me an opportunity to know the members better vocally and spiritually.

Rebekah is growing like a weed. It seemed like she grew so much while Summer and the kids were gone.

Tomorrow Star Wars Episode III comes out. Summer and I have watched all of the Star Wars in preparation. I think we will end up going for a Friday Matinee. When you have 3 children, it makes it difficult to stand in line for the midnight showing tonight, but I'll be there in spirit.

Well, it is back to work time. I find it harder and harder to post on a regular basis. How many of you still occasionally visit my blog? Just wondering?

Have a blessed day!!!!
