Congrats Steve on your first Century! there will be many more to come I'm sure. I pray you have an awesome morning at Westgate today!

Rhonda, we so very much appreciated the opportunity to be with everyone. That day, for us, will linger as a fine memory akin to a Robert Parker review claiming an amazing 45 second finish! Meaning this memory will just go on and on and on...
Oh, Randy... this sounds like one of the best days a person could have in Napa. I am so happy you all are having a great time. I can't wait to glean from your experiences there.

Well, you know why I'm disappointed! It would have been great to hang out with you in this beautiful part of the country chatting first hand what it's like to enjoy a "wine country lifestyle!" But we can still do that and you were right in the video audition... you do have a great life. You won't be missing out on too much.

wow! you're speaking my language... the same language of fear, discomfort and knowing what I've got to do as a follower of Christ. I'm with you!

of course I'm hoping you get this... You are the right guy for the job and if there is ever a need for an assistant, you know where I am!

Randy, Great job! I have to chuckle thinking of you riding on that flat tire but it shows me one more example of why you're a hero to me. "Quit really isn't a word I choose to use often. On the other hand, finish is a word I cherish." I love that and am proud to witness yet another goal "checked off" the list.

just got a chance to look and ponder... for me naked becomes "revelation." As you alluded, it can reveal the soul whether vulnerable or ashamed for both subject and subjected. I consider nude as simple and pure, resting in it's essence... depending on the condition of the view(er), all is present in this painting. Nicely done Randy!

Randy, I will pray for you at 11 EST that will be the same time I enter the cold waters of the San Fransisco Bay for my last triathlon of the year. You'll be done with your race before I am but you'll be in more pain for having done a marathon... Endure and then relish in the accomplishment!

I like to think I'm an easy going guy... but today I want to punch someone! Unfortunately don't know who. So, I guess I'll just keep my hands to myself. But all this PC BS is driving my crazy.

I'm loving the freedom of health to achieve what most in this world will not get to do, to enjoy the bounty of another northern California harvest and to experience the assurance of eternal favor with an awesome yet intimate God. Even though life seems uncertain; life is good!

Food is our discipline between instant gratification and processed reward. When I'm hungry I just grab whatever I can get my hands on. But when I'm wanting to experience the true essence of who God made me to be, a creative, worshiping, lover of the beauty before me (His creation) and inside me (His Spirit); I cook. I share. I pause. I enjoy. Consequently, I look forward to the times I can put that which is before me... inside me.

I have reflected and written a lot on this subject from the perspective of pastor and Christ follower. Depending on what hat I wear the conclusion can vary quite significantly. Based on needs or wants, purpose and position, the church exists for many reasons; to gather people of like faith but not just to gather people of like faith. It goes beyond community when it is seen as a force within a community. Did your gathering last night have the elements that comprise a great church? ... absolutely! Did your gathering do all the things a great church should accomplish? Not really. But then again, there are a lot of churches who have never experienced what you had last night either.

"There but for the grace of God go I"... "If it's got to be, it's up to me" and "Life is like a box of chocolates." Okay, just kidding but lately I've been unable to shake this proverb... "None of us are as smart as all of us."

My daughter, Sara just returned from China where she spent the last week in Beijing. She is recovering from a nasty case of bronchitis and tells us the air in that city is, "beyond disgusting" and referred to it as "The gray sky." For a country where saving face is paramount it will be interesting to see the spin.
