On the bandwagon...

Just bought an ipod last week. So far I'm loving it. I might love it more once I have all my music on it. And I imagine that this will come in very useful on our missions trip to Tijuana next month.

Any ideas how many Dave Matthews Band concerts I can fit on this thing?

God is even in this.

I was just reminded if that upon finishing "God is Closer Than You Think". God's got a great sense of timing...

Words cannot describe...

I don't even know where to start, but I do know that I don't like this...I think.

This can't be normal...can it?

It's already Friday...

Ok, so this is a little crazy. In the midst of preparing for a missions trip in the middle of August, I've also found a way to get scheduled to preach this Sunday, and organize a missions trip fundraiser immediately after the service. Then I lead worship on the 24th before heding up to camp with my band to lead worship there over the August long weekend.

And let's not forget about planning for the fall. I'm working on a new proposal for our youth ministry that would see things changed up a fair bit.

My parents are coming on the 24th, which means I need to clean the basement up so they have a place to stay (that's where the extra bed is). And I've also got a long list of housework to do in the very near future. Fix fence gates that won't open, do some painting, patch some holes, fix a sinking sidewalk.'s almost like I have too much to do and too little time to do it in.

I must admit...

I'm usually one of the first to complain about the lack of good TV during the summer months, however I thought I'd take a step of faith today and make a confession. I like watching Big Brother.

I hope you don't lose too much respect for me, but my wife and I regularly carve out time to see what's happening each week. I think the best part about this show is that it finds its way onton my screen almost 3 times a week. That's the way TV should epsisodes every couple of days.

Sweet dreams...

I think I'm falling in love...but don't worry, my wife knows!

Good tunes are coming...

I am absolutely looking forward to the new album by these guys. And the even better part is that they'll be leading worship at NYWC in Sacramento just after the album is released. Woohoo!

So much TV...

Well, I've been sick since Thursday night with a brutal sore throat and I've been running a fever, so I ended up spending most of my time today on the couch. That meant I was able to jump on the Live 8 bandwagon.

While I'm impressed by the sheer number of people that witmessed this event (whether live or on TV) I don't know if it will have a huge impact. I mean, let's be honest, do we really think that world leaders give a rip what multi-millionaire celebrities really think? Or that millions of people showing up for concerts will really have a voice?

I guess it would be nice to be wrong, but here's a few other random thoughts..

*Dave Matthews Band---I had to watch this one via AOL because CTV wasn't showing it, but these guys are always amazing! And ABC did a brutal job of editing when they showed DMB on their highlight show.

*Celine Dion---She got booed by the Canadian crowd because she was making a live appearance from Las Vega. Cruel? Yes! But stinking funny!

*Green Day---Way to wreck a classic Queen song. Oh, and lose the makeup!

*Neil Young---There really was no better way to end the Barrie show than with everyone joining him on "Keep on Rocking in the Free World".

*Motley Crue---Absolutely lame. Who let these clowns on the stage?!?!

*Sarah McLachlan---She has one of the most amazing voices in the industry. I didn't care much for Josh Groban joining in, but I can overlook it for now.

*Barenaked Ladies---It was too bad they were the second last act to take the stage because they only got 2 songs. They definitely deserved more stage time.

*Releasing the doves---I wonder if anyone got hit from above...if you know what I mean.

Well, at least I can say that I witnessed a piece of history, even if it was only on my 27" black box.
