Monday morning meanderings. Vol.44

Sayre, Oklahoma

We are back here in beautiful Western Oklahoma after a week plus in Washington.  While some of the state has had tornados and really high winds we have only had the high winds-sustained 30-35 mph and gusts to 40+. They aren’t really dangerous, so much as annoying. If it wasn’t for the wind, the weather here would be perfect.  Oh well, you can’t have it all! We are thankful for such a beautiful place to be and great friends to be here with.

Item one. First Myanmar and now China.  First the hurricanes and now earthquakes.  Thousands of people gone in a few seconds.  The devastation is beyond my imagination and I am sure the pictures don’t show the half of it.  We all complain about the price of fuel and what it does to the economy, and it does affect us all, but very few of us feel any real pain related to increases in fuel and commodities.  This morning I am thinking about how fortunate I am to live here in America where, even though we aren’t all we should be, we are always the first to respond when someone else’s life is broken.  For those of us who are Kingdom people, that is a prophetic word for how we must be as we respond to the needs of people all around us. Be thankful, be hopeful, be bold, be fruitful, we are such blessed people!

Item two.  You can file this one in the “who cares” folder but does it bother anyone else that the two Democrat candidates for prez have together spent nearly 500 million dollars just to get the nomination?  The figures can be found here.  These numbers are a month old too.  That is just stupid.  You would think with so much money available, we could at least have one candidate that actually seems to have some real ideas, some some real vision or even something substantive to offer.  I really don’t care and I doubt you to either but for this kind of money I sure wish I did. 

Item three. In the last M3 I linked to a blog I like called Stuff Christians like.  I was reading through several of the blogs I read regularly and discovered soon after my posting of this site that there were links on several of these sites to SCL too.  I thought that was pretty cool since they are all young writers and so to think they would link to a site I know doubt turned them on to, makes me feel so special.  Sure, they could have gotten it somewhere else but I am not buying it.  Here is the link to it again.  (you are right it takes very little to make me feel special)

item four.  Our friends Royal, Rachel and young son Jayden are moving out here to the midwest.  Royal has a great new job and opportunity to get an advanced degree on his new company, so they are making the move from the Northwest to Wichita, Kansas.  I should have given some props to Rachel a long time ago, as her blog is a pretty funny read.  But I wanted to make note of the fact that there is a virtual plethora of egress from the NW to the MW.  (need help with any of those words?) Want to join us?  Here is Rachel’s blog.  Royal, Rachel and Jayden will be about 4 hours north of our current location.

Item five. Those of you who like Kamp Krusty might be interested in knowing Brant’s radio talk show is going “coast to coast”.  If you haven’t read his blog, you owe it to yourself to take a few and read a few.  I have linked to him many times before but some of you have resisted to this point.  Why not now, here.

Item six.  The end of AI is close.  Only three potential American Idols left and one will be gone this week, leaving the two who will do the show finale next week.  A month ago I had my top 3 as David C., Syesha and Carley.  Should never have bet against David A. because the country loves him.  Carley went off two weeks ago but 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.  Who do I pick for the big winner?  Like I said, hard to bet against David A.  Should come down to one of the two Davids.

In between item three and four I drove to the OKC airport with my friend Cody Custer to pick up our friend Destry Haught who was flying in from Arizona.  Destry is one of the young pastors we spent time with when we were in Arizona this winter.  He is a self employed man who makes his living “riding” horses (what they call breaking a horse) doing horse dentistry and building fence.  He will do all three while he is here.  He is such a unique man with a powerful testimony of what God can do with a life given over to the walking in the Spirit.  We are looking forward to some good visits with Destry.

Have a great week!
