You know the kicker...it's people who should know better.
I know, I know, I shouldn't attempt to speak on His behalf...

I'm currently working on a sermon for this Sunday about the life of Elijah, so let's just say that I haven't been posting much because I've been working...yeah, that's it...I've been working...
I'm pondering and praying about what the fall has in store for our Youth Ministry. I don't know if I should leave things alone or do another overhaul. We tried a new "setup" this past year which definitely had its pros, but I feel it was far from what it could have been.
It's also crazy when you try and pick people's brains about what they like/dislike/want/need, especially when they all have a differing opinion. JR highs want this, SR highs want that, volunteers want something else, parents want the other things, the board doesn't want any of the above.
It makes my head spin sometimes.

This morning I get a call from a few of my High School students asking me if I was interested in going to see Batman Begins with them tonight. Since my wife wasn't exactly dying to see the movie I joined them.
And what a sweet movie it was...wow! Definitely the best movie of the series to date and definitely worth watching again. Maybe I can convince my wife to go...

It's completely amazing what science can do. My surgeon wants me to consider using "donor parts" when he reconstructs my ACL in the fall. Yup, he wants to take someone elses ACL and place it inside me. I dunno, but that's a little creepy.
On a lighter note, I just downloaded Riley Armstrong's new cd "LaLoop". And yes, it's legal...
Good tunes so far.

I can remember my dad sitting patiently at the table slowly eating cold pizza that tasted like cardboard and sipping on a coke while we ran around like maniacs.
Tonight we had dinner (if you can call it that) with family friends. I was the lone male besides the youngens. My responsibilty was clear: stay at the table to guard the purses and keep track of the tickets the kids would come back with every 15 minutes.
I'm left with one burning question...why on earth are there no TV's with sports highlights on them for all us dads?!?!
I guess this is fatherhood.

At least my wife will be there for these. She has always helped out with our weekend youth events, but she usually spends Wednesday's with our kids while I'm teaching the youth Bible study. I guess that means that we get to spend more time together!
It's going to be a busy summer. We don't usually have weekly events during the summer months. In fact, I don't envision having an entire week off until after the Mexico trip at the end of August. Hopefully I don't go crazy...

I'm not sure what to think...
But at least my wife and I are finally going to see "Revenge of the Sith" tonight. I know, I know...I'm one of the last people on earth to see it. Oh well, better late than never.

I've read all the details about Porn Sunday and I must say that I am intrigued. I've known about Mike & Craig for years now and I have always appreciated the battle they are fighting. I was able to see their documentary "Missionary Positions" at NYWC. I'll spare you the review. You kind of need to see it for yourself to understand it.
I'd love to jump on board with this thing, but a rural area isn't quite the place. Or is it? Maybe this is the perfect place for something like this. This needs some more thought...

So I'm reading some blogs today and thinking that I should spice mine up a little bit. Nothing too fancy, but maybe some new colors or a new layout.
Then I got to thinking that I should add some links to other blogs I read. But how do you decide what to link and what not to? Maybe I should accept financial contributions!

Well at least I can get rid of the crutches for now. It'll still be a while until I can run again, but it sure is better to be able to walk without being in constant pain. And now I'll need to wait until June 10th to have the stitches removed.
