I OD'd last night. The Bible says that "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength." (Proverbs 17:22 NLT). That being the case, I had a HUGE dose of medicine last night as I watched and listened to Bob Smiley perform here at Midtowne Church.
Bob was a hoot. We had a blast. One person told me they didn't know whether to watch me laugh at Bob or watch Bob. I had tears coming out of my eyes and the corners of my eyes were raw from wiping the tears away. Not only was he incredibly funny, he was a great entertainer. He moved all over the stage, interacted with the crowd, and even tried to convince us that he did not have ADD. His comedy was great, clean, relevant, and, most importantly, it had a purpose.
Bob is not just a funny guy, he also is a follower of Christ. He loves God in a big way. Not only is he funny and a follower of Christ, he loves his family. His wife and kids are very important in his life and he is not shy about revealing that to everyone.
So we have an amazingly funny, Christian, husband and father who is ready to crack a joke at any time and ready to let you know that God loves you very much and wants to use you to accomplish His purpose on this planet not matter how insignificant you may feel.
Yep, I overdosed on laughter in church of all places. And it was pretty stinkin' awesome.

The two of you who read this thing have told me that I have been negligent in writing. I know that. I'm sorry. Now for the list of excuses.
First, things have been really busy. Things are good, just busy. We have moved into the offices and are in the process of getting things set up there. Family has been good. The kids are out of school and I am trying to spend time with them.
Second, honestly, there have been other things that have taken my time. I know it doesn't take long to write this but nevertheless, that's the truth.
Third, The couple of times I did start to write something, I had so much I wanted to say that I couldn't decide what to do and then just didn't do anything.
Fourth, things have been really busy. Did I already mention that?
So What? I will do better. I will not disappoint either of you again by being so negligent in writing. And I think I need to make sure that I manage my time wisely. I will be talking about time management in a few weeks.
