Saturday Brain Doodle Dandy

Here are some random things I’m thinking about:

  • Justin Verlander threw a no-hitter! That makes me very happy and this happiness will last until they lose next.  I need medication for the mood swings that the Tigers put me on.
  • I get more nervous for my kids playing a sport than I ever did as a player.  I also find it harder to be a good sport as a parent.  All of a sudden I have compassion for the dad that fights the opposing team’s parents.  Again, medication is in order.
  • I’m thankful for the moms in my life.  My mom, Gayle, is an outstanding mother who was very sacrificial and nurturing.  My wife, is a phenominal mother who does a remarkable job caring for and loving our four kids.
  • I’m also thankful for Misgana’s mother who we also remember this weekend.  Without her we would not have our little Miss.
  • Tomorrow I have the opportunity to teach alongside Dr. Peter Newhouse again.  Pete is a great friend and has a lot of wisdom.  We always have fun planning these times and I hope that tomorrow’s topic of forgiveness will be a healing experience for many.
  • I believe that Jesus does change lives.  He doesn’t just improve them or merely give a good example to follow – He changes lives.
  • 95% of the music I listen to regularly is alternative/progressive music from the 80’s.  Now I understand my dad with the Beattles and Stones.
  • A quote I found this week: “Wherever there is fear, there is opportunity.  Wherever there is great fear, there is great opportunity.” – Andy Stanley.
  • Our Haiti Team will be flying home very very late tomorrow!  So excited to hear what they experienced and how God moved in their lives!
  • Thanks to all who supported and prayed for a family from our faith family who experienced a devastating loss.  Every life touches lives.  Every life is valuable.  Every life is sacred.  I was reminded to make sure every person knows that.

Have a great start to your Mother’s Day tomorrow!
