Happy Valentines Day

Mini MoonPies & a card

The epitome of romance: dinner with the kids and going for a walk as a family. I gave Shannon a pair of Tom's shoes. She gave me Mini MoonPies.

I think there's a real good chance she loves me. A lot.



I'll admit... When the local weather guys started saying there would be snow here in south Georgia, I said I'd believe it when I saw it. And just after dinner last night, I started believing it!

We let the kids play in the snow for a while Friday night because we weren't sure if it would be there in the morning. I say "kids," but really it was just Noah and me. Ansley wasn't all that impressed with it; just cold and wet. But there was plenty of snow this morning. Here's a pile of pictures for you to enjoy:

Some people dream of a white Christmas. I guess we'll settle for a white Valentines day!

Sweet Tweets!

My favorite Tweets from January:

  • RickWarren "What will grow our church?" is the wrong question.Instead ask"What is preventing growth?"All living things grow IF healthy
  • joelt_ Success requires you to continue "playing to win" and resist at all costs "playing not to lose."
  • RickWarren Praise & criticism are TESTS of character.You pass both tests the same way: humble yourself to God & show love to others.
  • MaxLucado Why listen to the mockers…when you can, with the same ear, listen to the voice of God?
  • stevenfurtick There's a big diff between falling down (Peter) & falling away (Judas). Grace means God's got your back-get back up!
  • BrianCHouston Leaders goal: An "anything could happen" ATMOSPHERE, a "whatever it takes" CULTURE, & an "all may come" TONE OF VOICE!
  • stevenfurtick When all else fails, & you're not sure what to do, just have integrity. Everything else will eventually come together.
  • BrianCHouston Leadership goal: To be deliberate in mixing SEASONED wisdom & YOUTHFUL exuberance in a single team, for ongoing momentum!
  • MattChandler74 When the illusion of control disappears we become men and women of prayer

Papa's Got Some Brand New Shoes

I received a pair of Toms shoes as a Christmas gift. Actually, I received a gift card for a pair of Toms Shoes, so I could pick out a pair I liked. Here's what I ordered:
Toms Tan Canvas Stitchout
They're the Toms Tan Canvas Stitchout. I've got several friends who've been wearing Toms for a while, but it's something new for me. After wearing them some for the past few weeks, they're comfy. Not real rugged or anything I'd try a 5k in... Basically, they remind me of closed toe flip-flops. They're pricey for flip-flops, but they were a gift. And, if you know anything about Toms, I actually bought two pair of shoes; one for me and one for a child in need.
