Green dot!!!

I got the green dot!!

Wow! Talk about a good feeling…

Now, here’s the really cool part. Talking with Jeremy (yes! a real, live phone call!), he said:

Dad, it was the strangest thing. A massive sandstorm came up and completely blinded everything. We drove back invisible; the bad guys couldn’t see us so they couldn’t attack us.

Guess what? Hundreds of folks, literally, have been praying since last night that Jeremy and his fellow soldiers would be invisible to the enemy!

Thank you everyone! Thank you!


The red dot

Any of you do Facebook?

I just learned it’s instant message feature the other day from my eldest child (us older folks can be a bit slow at times). Since learning of it and talking with my son yesterday in Iraq with it, I’ve become fixated on it today.

When someone is online, the little dot next to their name is green. If you have them in your cue, and they’re not online, the dot is red.

I’m waiting for the red dot to turn green…

Batting .450

Funny how things happen.

One moment, everything is going along smoothly; the next, the rug is yanked out from under you.

How do you respond when there really isn’t a response you can offer that will change anything?

Your promise revives me;
it comforts me in all my troubles. Psalms 119:50

Life is real. It brings the unknown when you’re least expecting it. It’s hard to hit curve balls that are low and to the inside.

It drops your batting average.

Being a power hitter means you can pick up those hard to hit balls and knock ’em out of the park.

Without the Spirit, the response is pathetic. With him your average soars.

Thanks for all the “applause” since last night; it helps me with my “game.”
