EKG/Hair Removal

So I went to get my ticker checked out after being on some pretty strong meds, and everything came back completely normal. Its always comforting to know that your heart is working the way it should be.

The best part about this EKG is when I took my shirt and laid down on the bed (no wandering minds please) and the nurse turned around and said, "I really hope I don't have to shave you". WHO SAY'S THAT?! The nerve! I thought to myself, thank you for such great bedside manner, I really appreciate it.

Then I gave her a gold star.

How you doin?

Last night on my way home I stopped at Del Taco to get the del deal (2 red burritos a taco and a drink 2.99, cant beat that!), and I pulled up to the drive through window and I asked the man how he was doing, with a surprised look he said to me, "Im GREAT! thank you for asking, I don't usually hear that from the customer". I apologized to him for all of mankind (I didn't exactly say that but you know what I mean). Then I asked him if he knew who Jesus was....... Just kidding, I couldn't close the deal that quickly, but I might be able to talk to him again, God know's I go to del taco enough. So, lets make it a goal to ask the people who we encounter throughout the day a simple "how are you". Who's In?

Volunteers make the church go round...

Here is one of the worship teams I get to work with at Saddleback Irvine. They are incredibly talented and have hearts the size of Montana. I love them, and so should you..

I know, I'm sorry. I haven't blogged in 6 months. BOOOOOOO. you can hit me next time you see me.

Anyway. Just wanted to give an update. Some of you may know that I just started working at Saddleback Irvine as the Worship Director. I'm loving it. I'm learning a ton.

I'm learning that when you are a leader you realize a lot of things about yourself that need work. Even to a point where you are consumed by your problems. I'm moving from that place to a place where I can see God embracing me and walking me through it all.

I'm learning that I can't please everyone and if I try I will fail miserably. Every day I'm asking God to keep me from trying to be a people pleaser so that I can focus on pleasing HIM and follow HIS will for my life. This is a process and always will be.

I'm learning that sometimes you have to put the things that you are most passionate about on hold.

I'm learning to listen to the old people around me, maybe I don't know everything after all. :)

Life is good. I love the relationships I'm building. I love to see people changed for Jesus, especially the parts of them that they think God wants nothing to do with.


Keep on Learning.
