30 Days of Thanks :: Childhood Memories

I am thankful for childhood memories. The other day I found myself looking back on summers spent with my Father in Virginia. We loved camping out. We would take off to a campsite or state park and hang out for day’s at a time roughing it in the woods. We are talking about tents, hammocks, packs, etc. The only thing we had was on our backs. Man it was great. However, that was long ago but the memories are still fresh in my mind of trekking along the Appalachian Trail for a couple of days here and there.

Now that you’ve read something I’m thankful for, it’s your turn…What are you thankful for? Ready, Set, Go!

pro-cras-ti-nat-or

I feel pretty sure I am…a procrastinator! I have heard some describe being a procrastinator as a good thing and others as well, not good at all. We procrastinator’s say things like, “I work better under pressure…that’s why I wait to get started/finish a project” or “it’s at the last minute that I get my best revelation/action plan for getting something done.” Whatever the excuse we procrastinator’s know that we were called to be quick thinkers/late night work doers. What made me post about procrastinator’s? It’s simple, I have some books out that I need to be studying and lessons that need to be finished. Chanelle took the kiddo’s out for a bit so I could work with a little bit of quietness around the house. I shut the TV off and turned on some music (His Radio 91.9 in case you were wondering) and planned that 6-9 would be my study time. Chanelle and the kiddo’s have been gone for about 30mins and as of right now I should have started with my lesson 13 minutes ago and well, here I am writing a blog post about procrastination J

BTW – Getting started on that book work now…

30 Days of Thanks :: Training

I am thankful for training. Until May 2011 I am involved in a Ministerial Internship Program within our Denomination. The training is good but it is exhausting. Currently I have a couple of hours worth of book work on Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Thursday’s, and Friday’s/Saturday’s. Also included is Monthly Seminars near Greenville, SC once a month on Friday Evenings and all day Saturday with tests. I also have to include that with having a full-time job (40 hrs/week), and a family (wife and two kids), the training is exhausting but needed and worthwhile. While there is a lot on the plate I am still thankful for training because it prepares you for the journey.

Now that you’ve read something I am thankful for it’s your turn…What are you thankful for? Ready, Set, Go!

30 Days of Thanks :: Sitting Around

I am thankful to be able to just sit around with nothing else on the agenda. Pretty much like I am going to do this evening. Chanelle and I picked up a few movies and are going to enjoy a quiet evening at the house. Peyton is in Sumter till tomorrow so it is just Julianna, Chanelle, and I. The movie for this evening is Letters to Juliet.

Now that you’ve read something I am thankful for, it’s your turn…What are you thankful for? Ready, Set, Go!

Famous Last Words

Until May I will be at Central Church, located on Hilton Head Island South Carolina, completing my Internship for MIP.  Pastor Carr just finished a series called Famous Last Words and WOW…it was great.  I was only able to catch the last two messages in the series in person but was able to go back and listen to the rest of them online.  This is a must listen to series.  Whatever you are doing I would suggest going to Central Church’s website HERE and either listening online or downloading the audio for future refrence.   I can’t express how honored I am to be able to be a part of this community over the next few months.  If your in the Hilton Head or Bluffton Area and are looking for a place to call home with people to call family, you really need to get to Central Church.  Seriously, your invited and will leave knowing your cared for.

Wordle

I was introduced to a pretty neat website and wanted to share it. It is called Wordle. To try it out I used Chanelle’s blog address and according to Wordle the picture below shows the most used words throughout her blog. You can copy and paste text or enter a web address in order to generate the picture. Give it a try in your spare time.
