Fall Festival was a blast (as always) Sunday night. Alice went as herself (from Alice in Wonderland), and I went as myself (from the movie Shane).
I went to an all day seminar yesterday titled "Managing Emotions Under Pressure." I am extremely hopeful not to have to test out these new skills any time soon...
The biggest things I took from the seminar:
- Keep things in perspective. Only one thing will kill you. Everything else is of lesser value.
- Q Tip = Quit Taking Things Personally
- Talk to yourself as you would talk to your best friend.
My body was very unhappy with me for sitting at this seminar all day, so I treated it to a visit with the chiropractor on the way home. That made it much happier.
I'm planning the Tulsa Churches of Christ Area-Wide Service for Sunday night, November 2. We're hopful to have 15 different congregations represented! That means a lot of phone calls for Shane this week.
Having Craig Hicks on staff this past week has been an absolute blessing. He brings enthusiasm, wisdom, humor, energy, and an eagerness to learn. If you weren't at Memorial Drive this past Sunday morning, you really need to listen to Craig and Terry's message of reconciliation. It will blow you away, whether you already know some of the story or not.
As for now, it's time to go renew my car tags, have lunch with a friend and then head to staff meeting.
