We're still in the "Post-Workshop Recovery Mode" over here in Tulsa. See Craig's blog...he's described the feeling well. I was rested enough today to operate a motor vehicle safely again...that's progress!

A part of my excursion this morning was to finally turn some things in to be framed for my office walls. I know, I know...I've been here for almost 3 years and still haven't really decorated my office. But now that I've figured out I might be staying for a while, I guess it's time to make myself at home. ; )

Thanks to all who joined us this year. Your presence is a blessing to us here at Memorial, and the Workshop couldn't happen without you. Yes, our numbers are down from the hey-day of the 80's and 90's, but those who are here are happy and learning and worshipping, and we couldn't ask for anything more. We'll continue to do our best to provide a great program, and you do your part in inviting your friends to come next year.

We're praying for a full recovery for all who worked so hard to make the Workshop happen for the Lord, and all of us. I have a feeling the Lord will see to it for you! :)
I really appreciate your heart bro, it's a blessing to worship with you and all who attend...I'm praying for you, and for the Workshop next year.

Hey friend,
Glad to hear you are thinking you will be "staying for a while".
A long long while is our plan.
Love you much brother!

Well I certainly HOPE you will be hanging around a while! ;o) This would be a terrible way to find out if you're not. LOL!

Would those pictures have anything "orange" in them? ;o)

You do such an amazing job with the workshop. I'm excited to see what and who next year may bring. I pray He give you much needed rest and relaxation for the next 357 days, 23 hours, 59 mins, 14..13...12...11...10...9...8...7...you get the idea! ;o)

just don't take out the helmets.

I would be interested in knowing what the numbers looked like. I had trouble getting in classrooms because they were full.

Sad to say I didn't get to as much as I had wanted to.

Well, the workshop was great but I'm anxious to see how this office decor turns out.

We will put the pressure on the other boys offices!

Go us!

Time flies, huh? It has for me.

Love having you here Shane! I can't imagine what it would be like without you, so get to hangin' those pictures! This year's workshop was great and I'm betting next year's will be even better! I know you, Jason and Bobby will be asking God to show you who to invite, what to share, etc that will proclaim the awesome Good News to everyone next year! We are lifting you guys up in prayer right now that God will move us out of the way so He can work!

I hate it that I was unable to attend this year but have heard that it was one of the best so far. Praise God! I wish I could have been at the bloggers lunch. I bet it was a blast. I kept you and all of those who presented and attended in my prayers. Praise God that it was such a success. Shane you, your family and ministry are always in my prayers as I know you and all those in your church are definately making a kingdom difference. Wonder! I hope you get the rest you need and an extra measure of strength, renewal and passion. God bless you brother.
