Cooler weather

Last night a big storm front came through and left us with cool temps. It went from the hottest day of the year yesterday at 104 to waking up to 57. Tonight it will get down to 53. That is a 50 degree difference in a hurry.

Last night the power went out at the church right after worship team rehearsal. Several of us stayed there for 15-20 minutes to wait out the storm a little. Anna was definately frightened by all the lightning and darkness. She was ready to go.

Anna has been struggling with her Exima (I don't know how to spell it) She is going to a pediactric dermotologist tomorrow. I hope they can figure out a way that we can control it. She was really bad the other night and had a hard time sleeping.

Well, it's time for me to study some more for my Sunday morning class on Genesis. Have a blessed day.

We are moved

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I've been in the middle of moving.

Summer, the kids, and I are now residents of Rockwall, Texas. We love our new house. It is the nicest house we have ever lived in. All the kids have a room and there is a 2nd living area for their toys. There is even a room for my recording and Warhammer stuff. The living room is really big so we can have groups of people over and the kitchen is huge as well. Most important is we have a 2 car garage. I love having a garage again.

I now have a commute to work, but I actually love it. It gives me quiet time that I generally don't have. I've already thought of many uses for that time.

The sound system proposal for our church has been approved. I'm so excited about getting a good sound system in our church.

Thursday all the worship ministers are coming to the church for an area wide lunch. I'm excited about being able to host all of them.

My mom and sister came to Dallas to help with the move. It was great to see them. I hope that us putting them to work doesn't keep them from coming back. Of course I know that when I go in to visit, my mom will likely put me to work moving furniture. My mom and my wife are notorious for wanting to move furniture every 2 weeks. I don't know if it is a girl thing or my family thing. If it is a family thing then my wife has been infected. I love you mom and Summer. :)

We had a new members dinner last night. We have some great new members becoming a part of our church. I'm excited to see how their gifts will be used.

Yesterday, the elders presented the plans for a new building. I think the plans look great. I'm excited to see how everyone responds and to see how things continue to develop in this building project.

Well that is just a little of what is going on. I'll post later. Blessings.

We're moving

Well, we move on Friday. We are so excited. We close on the house on Friday morning and then we will start moving stuff in. I think this will be great for the family. We will finally be settling into a community where the kids will go to school. It is such a neat area in Rockwall.

Things at PRCC are going well. Saturday there were about 20 of us that showed up for breakfast at Barbec's. There beer battered biscuts were awesome.

The Zoe conference is less than a month away. I can't wait. It looks like we have about 17 of us going.

Our church is hosting the worship ministers for lunch towards the end of this month. I can't wait. We haven't had an area wide worship minister lunch in a while.

We have about 32 displaced people from New Orleans that are in our church apartments. There has been so much given to help them and others out. The people are really nice and it is such an honor to be able to serve in this way.

Summer got back from Gatlinburg last night. It is good having them back home after not seeing them from a week. I know that they had a great time with her parents. Rebeckah is now waving and saying "Hi." She is so cute.

Well I guess that is the short of most everything. Have a blessed day.
