I’ve got a bunch of stuff floating around in my head and I wasn’t sure what to post, so here’s everything…
#1 – I have to slow down – I had to check my Treo to see when Carey and I could schedule a lunch together. That’s NOT cool. It starts today. I’m scaling back my life a bit.
#2 – I’m almost done with "The Story we find ourselves in" by Brian Mclaren. Phenomenal!
#3 – I have Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday’s episodes on American idol on my TiVo that I still haven’t watched! I’m going to try to watch at least 1 tonight.
#4 – It’s great that Malcolm Gladwell is blogging. The Tipping Point was amazing. And he is a very good speaker. I saw him at Catalyst this past year.
#5 – I’m excited about the book signing I’m doing at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday for my book "elements". It should be fun! Im looking forward to seeing some friends that I don’t get to spend much time with (Hence, the slowing down manifesto).
#6 – We should have our building permit by mid-March. If you’re going to build, remember one thing: it takes forever! But we will be in by September, which I’m really excited about!
#7 – I taught at a friend’s church on Wednesday and a guy came up to me and said, "Guess who I saw at my health club today?" I said, "Who?" He says, "Manny Ramirez!" The guy says to Manny, "Aren’t you supposed to be at Spring Training?" Manny just laughed and kept reading the paper! Is there a problem here?
#8 – I love Chris’ post today about Dwayne Wade. Cool stuff!
#9 – I’ve been thinking about this Oreo brownie from The Fresh Market – If you’ve never had one, treat yourself! It’s out of hand!
#10 – I really want to buy a Gibson Les Paul – I sold mine when I got married (it paid for our 1st, last, and security). But I really want to get one. You can only do so much on an acoustic. I learned the guitar solo to "Welcome to the Jungle", but it doesn’t sound the same. Then again, I don’t have Slash’s hair!
#11 – I want to download an audiobook from itunes, any suggestions?
#12 – I’m excited about this weekend’s message. I’m teaching Numbers 6:22-27, the priestly blessing. The question I want to explore is, "Why does God bless us?"
#13 – Chuck Smith, Jr.’s new book is a must read! My whole staff is reading it. It’s creating some amazing discussion!
For crying outloud!!!!
#14 – I just checked Bloglines and Gary just did a list of all the stuff he’s thinking about. This makes my list not seem that original. Altough I’ve very happy about #15 on his list. The question is, is my involvement in #15 the cause of #14?
