My Random Thoughts 10.26.11

Fall is in the air. This is such a beautiful time of year in Indiana. Here are some random things I have been thinking about. Read on, if you like.

  • The St. Louis Cardinals are my team. It’s been that way my entire life. They are in the World Series, which is incredible; but, they are not hitting, which stinks.
  • I love the Indianapolis Colts. This year, however, they are testing the limits of my devotion.
  • We are in the process of learning some new worship songs at MPCC. They are, “God Is Able” from the Hillsong Live CD by the same name. Great song. The other song is “Freedom Is Here” from the Hillsong United CD “Tear Down The Walls.” I really like both of them and appreciate the Truth that they communicate.
  • For a couple of years we have been working on, what I call, “The Cookie Jar Concept” in the Tabor house. I say ‘working on’ which simply means I have been trying to wear Kim down to get on board. She’s now on board and I love it. Reminds me of childhood. I LOVE IT.
  • I have been thinking a lot about Mark 8:36, which says, “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” (NIV) In a culture that is completely consumed with getting more stuff, that is very thought provoking.
  • This has been a challenging year for our family. Lots of health issues that we continue to pray about.
  • I really love chili dogs. Especially from Gene’s Root Beer stand in Anderson, IN.
  • As leaders, evaluation is so valuable. So is celebrating victories.
  • Maggie Corthell is an absolute rockstar. She plays percussion on our team nearly every weekend. She is also an incredible cook. She’s a picture of kindness. Love that lady.
  • I recently re-watched the movie “Planes, Trains & Automobiles.” Hilarious.
  • Did I mention that Kim has embraced “The Cookie Jar Concept?” Still loving it.
  • I am limiting myself to 1 regular Coke per week. This is a huge step for me.
  • I have some ministry hero’s. Many people on that list.
  • We were just a part of a memorial service for a dear friend. She made such a huge impact on so many people’s lives. She will be missed.
