Volunteers and Mountains

For those of you who don’t know, I work full time in a bookstore at my church. Yep. Our church has about 19,000 members, so, the bookstore is very busy. I love it. It’s just the perfect place for me to work even though I don’t write Christian Fiction. This past weekend, we had a HUGE book sale going on for THE STORY. It’s a version of the Bible we’re going to go through as a church. So, that meant over 100 volunteers to help out at the sale locations. It was quite an endeavor that had many hands involved[…]

Top Five . . .

It’s the last week of 2010, so I’m looking back over the year. It’s nice to take time to reflect a little, because I think we can grow from each and every experience, whether it was good or bad.

Musical Monday

On Saturday, one of our music guys at my church, Danny Larsh, sang a song called, Count Me In.  Oh my word…Danny sang it so well I had to find out who was the artist. Leeland. I have several of their songs already, even seen them in concert before…but I didn’t know of this song. So, as you can guess, I went right to iTunes and got it. Hope you like it as well: ~~~ Count Me In, by Leeland [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpSMx9PF51o] ~~~ Have a GREAT Monday, everyone!!

BLESSED

Hey, you ever remember the ten dollar challenge? It was during the month of Christmas, but should we let it only be during that time? No. Well, our church issued a little challenge of their own (not related to the $10 dollar challenge, but similar) during Saturday’s service to go out and bless someone in the upcoming week. So, Charlie and I were at an Italian restaurant enjoying some salad and spaghetti and meatballs when an opportunity presented itself: He nodded toward a mother and daughter sitting at a table a few down from ours and says, “So, should we[…]
