Directions...Ohhhh the Choices!

Have you ever come to a point in your life where you need to make a choice on the direction of it? Over the past few years I have felt that I made many wrong direction choices. I am certainly nowhere near where I dreamed I would be when I was in high school. Of course, how many of us actually turn out like we think? And it becomes harder the older we get to make direction-decisions...because by now I have a mortgage and 2 cats to consider. I know that God has protected me in many areas since I've been divorced - especially with men, and for that I am beyond grateful. I also know that I am hugely blessed with friends who love me like their own family. But there are still those moments that I think of the way it could-have, maybe should-have, been. I think those moments come more because I don't like my job - I work 2 jobs to get by - that means I have limited time to work for the church, and I don't have my perfect "match" in life to share life with - and I seem to just be spinning my wheels. I have been standing at the proverbial crossroads for quite awhile now... and there are times like now that I think God just wants me to learn to live in the moment and not get wrapped up in my own direction...just let Him take the lead. Yeah...he's definitely leading me...he's just not given me a new nudge along a new road yet.
And if anyone hasn't heard the new Casting Crowns cd - it's totally amazing as usual. I love the last song, "White Dove Rising." It's out of their normal realm, but beautiful beyond words.

GCC's Got Talent! Seriously!

The Talent Show was incredible! It felt so good to do a big production again! And of course, it was not all my idea - Bobby Marcum is still the main creative genius that fuels the craziness that's on stage, and Jeremy Kane was just as huge a help, and Barry Smith was invaluable with set-up and sage-handing...and then there's the Wired (tech) guys, Chad McCullough (aka Grumpy Old Man), and Dennis Frankford - who's husband to wife Lee who sang "who am I." They also helped with decorating the stage - and I can't forget the men who moved the stage around - nice to have them around! And everyone who participated - the judges, the singers and was a fabulous night and I was greatly blessed! Thank you everyone!

Concert Promo 2

And who wouldn't want this little girl for their very own!


Good Clean Joke!

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering.

Finally fed up, God said, "THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job."

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They faxed. They e-mailed. They e-mailed with attachments. They downloaded. They did spreadsheets! They wrote reports. They created labels and cards. They created charts and graphs. They did some genealogy reports They did every job known to man. Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than h-e-double "L". T

hen, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed.

Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming: "It's gone! It's all GONE! "I lost everything when the power went out!" Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work. Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait!" he screamed. "That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?"

God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES
