So, you can tell by my last post that I had good intentions. Then life happens.

The last few weeks have been absolutely Crazy (notice the capital “C”). Here is what has happened:

-We had a confirmation retreat and celebrated confirmation Sunday with 12 sixth graders

-Lisa saw the doctor and is scheduled for surgery Thursday

-Noah is leaving for a 10-day trip to Spain with my parents tomorrow

-I have been pulled in a 100 different directions

-I stopped reading “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan

-Read “Ragamuffin Gospel” by Brennan Manning in preparation for a series of lectures he is going to be giving in Moultrie, GA (a town near Albany)

-Found out that Brennan Manning canceled all speaking engagements through May due to illness (remember him in your prayers)

-My computer crashed, and I spent 7 hours working to get it fixed (Apple has incredible customer service)

-I have now lost a total of 37 pounds since the beginning of the year (only 33 more to meet my goal)

-Traveled to the west coast with Mike Johnson and visited southern Cali, and SLC, Utah (yes, we skied)

I know there is more, but I am to tired to remember it all. Really looking forward to our trip to ATL next week to hang out with friends and family.
