13 wonderful years!!!!!!!!!!!!

At 11:00am 13 years ago Sheila and I were getting married. we have a great marriage and I love her more than anything this side of eternity! Sadly most marriages dont last 5 years and if you did the math on us, you would have never put us together in the same room! But God sees things differently (lucky for me). Lets see: sheila likes sports-I dont, she is organized-I am not, she likes country music-I like jam/rap, she likes ferrets- I think they stink, she thinks computers are work tool- I think they are toys, she loves vegetables-I think they are from the devil, she can read a 300 page book in a day-I cant read a 30 page book in a week, she panics-I chill, she likes winter and putting more clothes-I like summer and taking them off. I could go on and on but I think you all get the point. But we never have big arguements and when we do argue, they dont last very long (because I am always right :) ). I think us getting along so well has a lot to do with our differences. You see, you cannot build a beautiful puzzel with matching pieces! And our marriage is a beautiful one. We still kiss and make out and cuddle! I look forward to many more years together! So happy aniversary to us, I can assure you!

I know that this is just a little thing but to get up at 6:00am to the smell of coffee is great!

no I'm not spiteful!

But I do like to see rich people cry!

This is what I would call a bad day at the dry docks! The $1.5 million yacht fell off its sling while being loaded into a cargo ship for delivery. and yes that is a man on the back going for a crazy ride, he was/is fine.

what a picture! Great shot photo guy.

below is the aftermath of the 55-foot boat and the faithful crew who went down with it. Hey at least it floats!

Just checking in

Hey, Have I told you guys that I love it here? Not the city or town, but here at Discovery. I like where I serve and where God has placed me. Its easy to forget how blessed we are somtimes when things pile up and overwhelm us. God has been really moving in my life and I just wanted you all know now it. Pray for us and stay tuned in.

I laughed my booty off when they played this in church this Sunday morning.

I am going back to Florida to COOL DOWN!!!

Ok, for my faithful blog readers, you may remember me posting a thermometer in the winter of below 30 degrees to tease all you Floridians. Well look at this one!!! And the day I took this Tama only got up to 90! We lost our AC on Friday but a good friend (James w/ Heavenly Comfort AC repair) hooked us up & had us running by noon! Looks like it may be a another hot one this week!

Yeap the big 40

I look at it as more of an achievement than aging. Truth be know; I actually age one whole year at every staff meeting. Since I have been up here in N.C. I have aged some 22+ years!
Tomorrow at church I know Jason has something planned. I was going to try and figure out all possible attacks and be ready for it but I have decided to let him have his fun and I’ll get’um back later. After all, he IS an easy target, just ask James or Randy. Anyway, I will let ya’ll know what he does and keep you posted on my comeback.

oh no he didn't

So Jason made me a simpson!!! (
well I see your cartoon and raise you some candy! Below you will see what our loving pastor would look like as an M&M!

But dont worry, he will not melt in your hand...just on the golf course.

7 first time guests visited us this week, but only one of our 6 first-timers from last week returned.
If and when you see a new face, be sure to greet them and make them feel welcome. and never ever ever let them sit all by themselves! I did see some of you greeting people this week so a big-ol smilie face sticker for you!

We enjoyed our guest preacher & their music and we look forward to one more week with them. These guys rock and are about to plant a church. Keep them in your prayers.

The Fantasic Four results from church

The Results are in:
During our message on July 15th we compared Christians with the Fantastic Four. Then we challenged our guest to let us know which one their walk most resembled.

Sorry it took so long to post these but we really wanted a game plan before we revealed the results. If you have no idea what this is you need to listen to our message on the F4 (

From low to high here it is:
The Thing (rock solid) 7
Mr Fantastic (flexible & conforming) 16
Human Torch (flash in the pan) 17
Invisible Girl (Invisable & unknown) 29!!!

That is quite a leap in numbers and really has us thinking: Christians don’t know how to put their faith into action, to reflect God in their daily lives and they don’t know how or why to share their story of Gods movement in their lives. So stay tuned for the next few series here at Discovery while we work with the “Invisible Christians”. We are pretty much taking this trough the rest of the year but for the Torches, Flex & Rocks out their, do not feel left out cause we are hitting on those also during this time.
