BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE FIRST MONDAY OF 2011

  • I watched “The Cat in the Hat” cartoon with my son this morning.  That dude has a sweet car.  Gotta get me one of those.
  • It was fun seeing David get so excited for the people winning stuff on The Price Is Right.  Sidenote:  Drew Cary is terrible on that show.
  • Lots of folks sick and in the hospital from our congregation.  Prayers welcome!
  • We are still having a blast with our little foster girl.  We love her.  We’ve had her almost two months now.
  • Lexi asked me last Friday (New Year’s Eve) who was playing in the football game.  I said “Your mom.”  She replied:  “Mommy doesn’t play football.”  Priceless.
  • Big surprise:  Eric Mangini was fired this morning.  I think Holmgren left him around to be responsible for a team that just wasn’t very good.  Another draft and another round of free agency and now Holmgren can look good as the coach as the team improves.
  • I think Mangini did an OK job, but he should have fired is offensive coordinator.  Play calling was lousy for most of the year – way too conservative to be competitive in the NFL.  Peyton “Whatchyou Talkin’ about ” Hillis seemed like the only game plan they had.
  • A couple of times recently I have offered to pray for people via my Facebook status.  It has been great to know how to pray for specific people – some whom I haven’t had any contact with in quite a while.
  • I do pray that Jesus will be glorified in my life, in my marriage, in our family, and in our church in 2011.  I can’t wait to see what He is going to do and how He is going to change us.  Pray pray pray!!
