Ecclesiastes 7:2

I'm going to copy a journal entry that I made this morning...yep, I keep another journal in a notebook. Here it is:

I went to another funeral last night - the fifth one in two weeks. Pretty uncommon for us to have this many in such a short time. Every service I attended, I listened, thought, prayed, wondered, re-focused. Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 7:2, "Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies - so the living should take this heart." He was so right - going to a funeral service makes you, forces you to think about life - your life! That's what I did last night. My friend Matt Flynn died of MS at the age of 51. That's too young to die. Tragic and sad, yet last night was a true celebration - I believe God was worshiped, people were challenged, people remembered. Pictures of Matt last night was the highlight for me - pictures of a man who lived life to its fullest, even to the very end.

Maybe everyone does this...whenever I go to a funeral, I begin to think what my funeral would look like. What would be said? Who would be sharing? What was my life all about? Really makes you think...reminds me to live life to its fullest.

Here are some pretty incredible statues that are found all the world. Anyone seen one of these live??


Every now and then Bryan will say the word "FAIL" when something or someone "fails." I came across this web site the other day...it's all about people or things that FAIL. Blunders, misquotes, etc.

Ellie just got a new kiddie pool last week...but it was nothing like this!

Really digging this Pandora radio. I've got the "free" app on my iPhone. Some of my favorite stations??
-Big Country (anybody remember them??)
-David Crowder
-Men at Work (that's bringing some serious 80's memories!)

Check it out sometime...it's free!

My day of birth...

So today I'm 42. Don't feel like 42, not sure what it's supposed to feel like. My family gave me a very cool present. We are going to Florida this summer for vacation and while we are there Holly booked a Shark Fishing Excursion for me and Bryan! We'll set sail at 7pm and return at midnight. Never been fishing for shark! What a great gift!!

Other way cool gifts:
-scored some CA$H and bought a new circular saw. Trying to add more to the "woodshop."
-German Chocolate cake from mom! This is the best cake in the world and it's all mine!
-might use some cash for something I've been contemplating for a long time...I'll share in a later post.

Today...I'm working at church. Tonight we're grilling out. Just some great time with my family.

Can't believe I'm forty-two.
