Wednesday Words, late edition!

Didn't have it in me to do any typing yesterday. I'm not sure why. A little October laziness I suppose. Is there such a thing?

I think that I finally have the car figured out. It's running so let's see how long that will last. I'm happy about that, now I don't have to use Letty's car. I'm sure that she's happy as well!

One really cool thing that happened this week is that we are sponsoring a child from Compassion International. I just got convicted when I was reading Anne Jackson's blog post about it yesterday. We aren't rich by any means but I do know that we are richer than most other places in the world. It's nice to be able to throw a little love and prayer across the world to a child that could use it. How often do we get a chance to make a real difference in someones life. I love that!

I've been doing a lot of praying and reading of my Bible this week as well. I'm in the last part of Exodus which is like pulling teeth. Isn't that a horrible thing to say? Actually it's starting to pick up steam as the Israelites built a golden calf and God wasn't having any of that. He's a jealous God! I need to remember that as well. I'm constantly putting false idols in place of God. Whether it's money, poker, football, the internet, guitar, or whatever I usually find a way to put it in place of God. I'm getting better though.

It sure was fun watching the Chargers beat the snot out of the Patriots Sunday night. Although not as fun as if they had their whole team playing. Nonetheless, it was fun. Hopefully we can keep things roll against the Bills and then they are off to London for a game against New Orleans.

I was on a pretty good roll playing poker but have been in a mini slump the last couple of days. I think maybe I'm a little burnt out and need to stop for a day or two. We'll see about that. Hope everyone is doing well, especially Brenda who just went through a little surgery. Throw some prayers her way or better yet, stop in to her blog and say hi!

Bub-
You are so sweet for mentioning me in your post! (is it ok to call a tough rocker-dude sweet?) And thanks so much for your prayers.

Glad you got your car fixed. That can be such a pain.

On the 12th I noticed you were up to $31.37. Woo hoo! But now it's down a little. Guess that's how that game goes, uh?

How cool to hear you're sponsoring a child through Compassion. I just started sponsoring a little girl from Africa last June! It's such a good feeling to know your helping to make their life a little better. I know God will bless you for that.

I've been trying to play "One More Time" and it is really difficult! I can play the chorus but that's it. My fingers aren't long enough to reach some of those complicated chords. :(

Brenda- The verse is really easy actually. Maybe I'll have Letty videotape me playing it so you can see how easy it is to play it.
