Day #2

Well last night was the Super Bowl. I watched from some great friends homes.

I thought the game was good. (Please note: I don’t really do sports.) I really watch the Super Bowl for the Ads.

I thought some of the best were the Bridgestone ones, I like the space one where the guy gets blocked.

Well it’s Day #2 back on the blog scene. Have a great day!

Headed out to OKC this afternoon…

The day has finally come, I am headed to Oklahoma City, OK to meet up with the guys from LifeChurch.tv…

I am really excited about this and really look forward to seeing how they do things…

That’s all for now… More stuff once I get back…

Christmas Road Trip 2007

TOTAL MILES: Almost 2000 miles

 

TOTAL TIME IN CAR: Almost 26 hours

 

TOTAL TIME OUT OF RICHMOND: 5 days

 

REWARDS: Priceless!!!

 

It was so nice to see everyone.

 

I was so glad to see the Broyles Family. I really enjoyed being able to spend time with each of them alone. Aunt Natalie and I had a great conversation about church, how small groups work, about my church, and about North Point Church and Andy Stanley. I got to talk with Uncle David about politics, the crisis in Pakistan, and about what’s happening with the Back Yard Burgers business. I got to talk with Kelsey about college, her friends, and life in general. I got to hang out with John Allen and discuss PSP games, Middle School Life, and his friends.

 

I was so glad to see my mom. I love her so much and I am glad we got to see her. We got to do some of our favorite activities with her MOVIES!!!

 

It was so nice to see Lynette and Krystal. Plus we got to see Krystal’s daughter, Jade, and she is a cutie.

 

I was so glad to see my Uncle and one cousin (Hillary). He is getting older but still looks the same.

 

I loved getting to see both of my grandmothers. Mimi in Memphis and Gram in Knoxville, they are both looking great.

 

I was so glad we got to see Sam and Phyllis. Even though it was only for a couple of minutes it was really nice.

 

I really liked being able to spend time around the family and friends.

True friend or a soundboard?

This is article is not written to anyone specifically just something I was pondering on the other day… 

So what is a friend really?

I think it is a person who you hang with, you discuss problems with back and forth, someone who you have things in common with.

Here’s what Websters says:

Or is that person just a soundboard?

I think a soundboard is just a person who you can vent to. This person is not really a friend just someone to complain to. This person may or may not have something in common with you.

So what are you???

Debits and Credits…

ATTN: Accounting people

NOT!!!

Well you would probably think when I talk about Debits and Credits that I am talking about something in accounting but I’m not… A friend in ministry (Marty Dewey) tonight was talking about debits and credits in people’s life… We have discussed this in the past and I thought it was necessary to share this insightful information…

Debits and Credits in a person’s life looks like giving to a person what he or she needs and then receiving back… So this can look like many different things… Listening to one’s problems and then asking them to listen to yours… So when I listen to your problems that’s credit on your account and debit on my account… When you listen to me that’s a credit on my account and a debit on your account… The debit and credits idea is great… I think all of us use it but we may not call it debits and credits…

There’s a new way for you think about listening to people’s problems or helping someone out consider it a debit and credit…

Well I hope this helps someone… Let me know…
