Steve Forbes on the economy

September 30, 2008

Everyone should take a few minutes and watch this (actually listen!). Steve Forbes actually knows about economics as apposed to a bunch of lifelong politicians or news talking heads. He makes some very interesting points and clarifies some things. Just click on the picture and then on the right side of the link you will see the Home Page News Feed.


Some thoughts….

September 27, 2008

I have been on Facebook since the day that it became available for the non-collegiate public (like 2 years). This week I have reconnected with people that I thought I would never see or hear from again. Do you Facebook?

The season 5 premiere of The Office was great. I loved the way they filled in the summer gaps with a weight loss contest. Brilliant. Jim and Pam finally got engaged, Angela and Dwight are kind of back together, Michael is still an idiot and Ryan is back as a temp.

The whole economy thing is not freaking me out but it does cause concern. I really believe that we are watching the early transition of the American economy from a capitalist to more socialist. It’s obvious that there are people out there who prefer this. I prefer freedom.

The first Presidential debate is tonight. Snooze…..

The U plays University of North Carolina tomorrow. Should be a good test to see if Miami is ready to compete for the ACC Coastal Division. Go ‘Canes!

I still can’t believe the Dolphins beat New England last Sunday. There is hope for my team!

God is doing something very cool in our student ministry. If you think about it please pray for our students, that God would give them courage and direction to make an eternal difference on this planet.

The weather has been pretty nice down here. We don’t really have a fall, but the air is just a bit cooler and drier.

A needed day away

September 26, 2008

Life has been so hectic. Actually the past month has been one of the most intense periods of ministry in my life. So this morning after a campus visit, Penny and I packed the boys up for the 2 hour trip north to Orlando. We went to Sea World  for the day and enjoyed all the crazy sea life. Here are some pictures of our little trip away. One of the perks to living in Florida….

Sleepy head!

You won’t believe this! Our son Jadon can’t stay awake at the dinner table. We have already submitted this to Americas Funniest Home videos.

Friday night lights

September 20, 2008

Tonight I was on the sidelines of 2 high school football games, Jupiter High School and Jupiter Christian School. I’m the chaplain for Jupiter High School and I have some students that play for Jupiter Christian. I love this time of year as football is in the air. What did you do on Friday night?
