The bill is in the mail

Posted: July 30, 2008 in Uncategorized

Or I should say, the bill WAS in the mailbox today, now it is sitting on the kitchen table.

The invoice … the BIG bill … for our daughter’s fall term for college …



Wow – I had a big ‘ol God moment at work today…

The toughest part about taking a week or more away from the office is getting back in the swing of things.   Wow, I am just a bit overwhelmed …


So much to tell – so little time.  At least right now.

It’s been a busy past few days.  The fam and I disappeared last week, kind of a last minute thing.   We spent some good time on the white sandy beaches of our southern coast.  We even took our new lab puppy … you’ll see a few pix of her, too.

The photos are at the end of this post.  Meanwhile, BACK TO REALITY …

Home run!  The training was very well received (although I immediately followed Dr. Gary Chapman of “The Five Love Languages” fame – HOW DO YOU FOLLOW GARY CHAPMAN, I ASK??? )  But, I do think I made up for my pathetic bowling exhibition last night!

It’s going to be great in coming days, reconnecting via the internet with these wonderful people.  I cannot wait to see what God has in mind for all these new relationships.

Now, about my trip home… (more…)
