Since I did such a horrible job of keeping up with my blog over the last six months (here’s the 411 about all that) I decided to go back and post about some things to took place or that I learned and would have wanted to share had I not been so LAME!
Did I ever tell you about the time I went to the ATL on God’s dime?? Continue reading
Tuesday, 8/18 – and I’ll be “leaving on a jet plane” but I DO KNOW when I’ll be back again. I’m headed back to the “motherland” good ole Elizabeth City, NC. I’m flying out of the ATL to Newport News and then traveling with a friend back down to E City. I’m really looking forward to heading back and being a part of the opening week activities @ MACU (Mid-Atlantic Christian University).
I have the great privilege of getting to speak @ MACU’s Chapel service on Wednesday morning. Hopefully challenging the Staff/Faculty and student body for the upcoming year ahead. I TRULY LOVE getting these types of opportunities as MACU holds a very special place in my heart & heritage.
The rest of the week I’ll be hanging out and meeting students and friends to just take in all the excitement of the first week of classes. I am also going to be having some meetings about some possible new avenues for some of the Alumni of the University to be on campus and to give back at future events. I think some GREAT THINGS will come of this time of fellowship and planning together.
I’ll also get the chance to spend time with my parents who still live there in town and work there at the school. I’ll get to see long time friends and family who are there and also spend some great time with some other friends who live in town. The highlight of some of this will be getting to go back and play volleyball with some very DEAR friends of mine whom I’ve not seen in a while and have not been able to play ball with in YEARS & YEARS – so it should be good times!
Then I’ll be heading back to the ATL on Saturday 8/22 to be back and ready for the next round of our “WITH” series here @ Christ’s Church at Cobb, on Sunday 8/23 – really excited about that!
So I’m not sure how much ONLINE time I’ll get this week but I’ve tried to leave ya some posts to get ya through the week. Catch ya around sometime soon!
So I flew back into the ATL on Monday evening – had a lil weather issues and got delayed some. Thus Monday was totally shot for getting anything done on this end. Then I had to hit the ground running on Tuesday, but was pretty wore out from the trip and that didn’t happen as quickly as I would have liked.
Jeff & Lisa and the girls were making plans to hit the road heading back to VA and NC, so Tuesday was our only “overlap” day of work. That always means trying to work out all the details from the weekend before and the weekend ahead.
I had a first meeting of a summer group I am leading on Wednesday night (talk more in another post – cause I am excited about this) and trying to knock out a sermon for this coming Sunday. So I’ve got lots on my plate. But this is the reason that the old bloggy-blog has suffered in the last week or so.
I have some stuff I really want to share and I hope to do so in the next couple days now that I am finally catching up some. So at least here is a lil update of what has been going on with more stuff soon to follow!
Catch ya’ll around soon with some more AWESOME STUFF going on!
Wow so I just realized that it has been like 9 days since I posted on here – sorry about that (like ya’ll care ha ha ha) I was on the road all this week in a Conference in Orlando. It is a Church Planting Conference called EXPONENTIAL and it was AWESOME.
I thought I might have a lil more time & also more access to internet but NO DICE – so now back to keeping it updated.
So Lisa & Jeff (sister & brother in law) and I drove from Atlanta to Orlando last Sunday and were there till yesterday. We got back to the ATL around 3:30 PM and were TOTALLY EXHAUSTED. So today has been a day full of NOTHING but laying around and resting up.
Well that is pretty much it for now, but it feels good to be back up on the blog-train!
My deepest apologies to all my fans – HA HA HA HA – sorry ya’ll I know I have been MIA the last couple weeks. Things got crazy with Thanksgiving Travel (but really good times) and I have just not gotten back into the swing of things yet. So I am not making it my full intent to get back up on the bloggin’ horse and give you HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT – yeah you know that’s how long it takes to read my posts!
And AWAY WE GO….
So I had a great time @ T-giving – flew out of ATL to Jacksonville, FL to see a good friend of mine from college. We then jumped in her car and drove to Richmond, VA – a sweet lil 9 hour gig (but we can’t complain cause traffic flowed smoothly and we didn’t hit any problems). Then I got dropped off to spend a couple days with the Price/McCracken Crew for Thanksgiving. I got to meet BABY MICAH – wooo hooo and see the rest of the gang for a big ole meal on Thanksgiving Day. Brian and I mopped up in a couple games of Cornhole (no doubt I ROCKED it out hittin’ 3 straight beanbags in the hole to win the last match!!) and we all just had a great time together.
I then hopped a plane from RIC back to the ATL on Friday evening (just a heads up – day after is a SWEET day to fly – the airport was a ghost-town) – was back to my house by like 10 PM Friday night. Had a chill Saturday just doing not much of anything and gettin’ ready to preach on Sunday.
And now I am back into the rhythm and should be churnin’ out new posts left and right ladies and gents – I have some pretty exciting videos to send your way – so check back EARLY AND OFTEN!
See ya soon!
