My Thoughts – 3.11.09

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written. Somewhere between a new job, a long commute and life in general it’s been a very busy few weeks. Life really does get busy doesn’t it? Just writing these first 2 lines I have had to stop and answer 7 emails and 4 text messages. Seriously, life is really busy these days for all of us!

Here are some of my thoughts…..

Heaven on earth.....

Heaven on earth.....

 

 

 

I think that the Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs that come out before Easter are absolutely the perfect candy. I always enjoy a good Reese’s peanut butter cup but there is just something about the Easter version that takes me to a new level. I’m not sure what it is. I also enjoy the other seasonal shapes but the Easter one, for my money, is the absolute best!

I think that Matt Maher is a phenomenal songwriter, worship leader and performer. He has given The Church songs like “Your Grace Is Enough,” “For Your Glory,” “Resurrection Day,” “On The Third Day” and “As It Is In Heaven” among many, many others. If you ever have the chance to see him live I would highly encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity. You will be blessed and encouraged.

I think that our team at MPCC is really developing and that blesses me. I am grateful to work with wonderful people and I believe that God has great things in store! We are talking about values that we embrace as a team….things like Preparation, Communication, Teamwork, Community and many others. I can see people investing themselves and I am grateful for that.

I still think that Chick-fil-A is the perfect restaurant. Great quality food prepared in-house at a great price…are you kidding me? What else do you need? This place rocks. Bonus: there is one less than 5 miles from MPCC!

I think that the Cardinals have a chance to be good this year. All signs point to Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright being healthy and anchoring the starting rotation. Plus, anytime you have Albert Pujols (the reigning NL MVP) in your line-up you have a serious chance. El Hombre (AP) will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week and I cannot wait to read the article. You can read a sample here.

I think that the move Juno is great and entertaining. Now, before I go any further understand this: it is not a Christian movie. They most likely will not be showing it at churches. Having said that, it offers some great alternatives to unfortunate situations. There are also some incredible one-liners that will really stick with you.  

I think this season of 24 rocks! Jack Bauer is keeping us on the edge of our seat as we watch. He’s also delivered some great one-liners this year too. He is one bad man.

I think that my wife Kim absolutely knocked the ball out of the park last weekend in her first featured speaking gig ever. She worked very hard to prepare and God used her in an incredible way. I am so proud of her and proud of the Woman of God she is becoming!
