  • Below are some pics I snapped of our Fourth of July Celebration at Providence, in Mt. Juliet.  Wow, for the first time ever to be held there, it was awesome.  It had a Christian theme, and was supported with vendors, and eateries and such.  The entertainment was better than what was offered downtown, with Jeff Deyo performing, (of Sonicflood fame), followed by Chris Sligh (of American Idol fame).  It was perfect for families with small children, with lots of free stuff to enjoy, not to mention the shops at Providence.  Very nice, considering its 10 minutes from the house.   My best buds, Marc and Miranda brought their son Aiden, and Aaron and Christina brought their kids, Emmaline and Eli  (all seen in the pics…:))
  • At the movies,
  • at lifechurch.tv, came to an amazing start.  Our first movie we got to see was, The Pursuit of Happiness.  Unbelievable to see the  tears in the room, very touching.  Huge crowds, and many first time decisions were made, I can’t wait for next week!! 
  • If you can remember, say a prayer for my Dad today, he’s having his heart scoped at St. Thomas, who knows whats next, may a stint or two??

Kayaking, oneprayer, and the Fourth

  • I got to go kayakinglast weekend with two of my favorite people in the whole wide world.  My Pastor at Lifechurch.tv, HNV, Andrew, and my buddy Aaron that is visiting from Vancouver.  We decided to make it an overnight-er, and deemed that kayaking sounds much more manly than canoes.  We decided to go for a 20 mile section of the Harpeth River.  The plan was to kayak down about half way, and then spend the night on the riverbank, making it the rest of the way in the morning.  Unfortunately our trip was cut short by injury.  Andrew and Aaron’s kayaks collided, leaving Andrew with sorely bruised ribs.  We evacuated him at the closest take-out point, luckily nothing broken.  Insult to injury all his gear was soaked, so was Aaron’s camera and phone.  Wow, what a trip.   I think we’ll need to go back and conquer that section again. 😉
  • Oneprayercontinues to blow me away.  Ed Young brought the message this week as only he can.  Its been neat to read around the blogosphere of the unifying efforts going on.  Prayer and fasting goes a long ways.  It’s drawn me into a closer walk with Him….God is good…
  • We had over 100 people at Switch last week, wow.  10 got saved, including 2 parents!!
  • The Fourth of July is coming quickly.  I love fireworks and BBQ on the grill.  Looks like we’ll be hosting friends from Chattanooga and Vancouver that day.  Sweet…   Don’t forget to check out www.shoutable.com for downloadable “4th” backgrounds, videos, and countdowns.
