Marty is my hero

As some of my buds know I was always a big 4Him fan (really a Marty MacGehee fan) for all of the nineties. Marty is now doing a solo album and he posted a bulletin about a year ago to send in pics of yourself and he and that some would be posted on his mySpace page. I saw his page and had forgotten all about that and happened to see me, Marty, Melissa Cameron, and you can just see Beka (wifey) behind us. Some of you are like "Dude, who is 4Him and may seem insignificant but this is pretty cool to me. You can see it on his slide show at - http://www. myspace. com/myriteturn

Memories on a Trampoline

Fall 1993 - sneaking into the gym after football practice and kickin' it up on the Olympic size trampolines and watching my dare devil friend Jim T. land in between the springs... yes - your thinking the worst and that is what happened.

Spring 1994 - Trying a backflip on the trampoline at my youth pastor's house in front of some girls and landing about 10 feet away from the desired location... in the yard.

Summer 1996 - at my buddies house in Canton... playing break the egg... Wade was the egg... we broke him.

This is why I say that we will never own one but let the kids play at the neighbors... Yeah it makes no sense - ok it makes perfect sense... I am a bad father.

10% FUN... 90% FAT

It's been since the 90's since I've been on a trampoline. My kids were in the neighbors back yard kickin' it up when I decided to give it a whirl. Let's just say if you want to lose weight... get on one.
I felt my face pull downward like it was made out of putty. And for the rest of me... well let's just say it didn't do much for my confidence.

WOW - that was awesome!!!

My buddy Zach and I went door to door today in Marion in hopes of speaking to some potential launch team members for the church plant. We went to some condo's and knocked about 40 doors. A lot of 'not homes' but we spoke with an unbelievable amount of interested people. It was something like 11-12 people that were really receptive. I really feel as if we are going to reap a long awaited harvest!
