Made some good progress on messages for the next few months. I have other pastors sharing over the next few weeks and its giving me the opportunity to work in the future. I think this will really help us go to the next level of creativity!
Had lunch with one of my best friends in Columbia. We had some great conversation and some tough conversation....... and we still love each other! That's what true friends do.
Took my son to baseball practice. I signed up to assist but ended up the head coach..... go figure. This is his first year in coaches pitch and he is doing great. He is one of the youngest kids on the team, but he can really catch, throw, and smack the ball! Proud poppa I am!
Went to my parents to help put my dad in bed. He suffered a severe stroke about 8 years ago, and is over 75. He could be around another year, or another 20..... who knows. I need to be there for/with him as much as possible, making the most of each day God gifts us.
On the way home, God gave me a brilliant light show of lightning in the dark skies. It was turning the thunder clouds orange and it looked as if they were touching the front door of heaven! I wanted to turn the car off and watch the show for a while, but I was more eager to get home to my sweet wife. She makes me want to come home every time I leave!
Its been a great day.
