My 63rd Birth...DAY....


........started out this morning with a gathering of our church Leadership Community for inspiration, communication and to connect with others who serve. Pat and I serve on the Hospitality and Connect Team. I facilitated discussion around the topic of how each of our jobs fulfill the mission of our church.


The mission of our church is clear and stated on a big sign on the wall just inside the door....but more importantly it is infused into our DNA. I felt that I couldn't have had a better start to a birth day!

The day was peppered with phone calls and email wishes. This evening Pat and I attended an event that was a fund raiser for the reelection of Sheriff Randy Thorpe. What it turned out to be was an evening of laughter, entertainment and reconnection. The entertainment was provided by Bryan Lewis who for my family's recollection, is the son of my good friend, Barry Lewis. Bryan has HILARIOUS and very talented and has recorded in Nashville. We had a wonderful time.



Growing older can best be summed up by the card Bob and Claudia sent me..........

Sorry I wasn't healthy enough to give you a proper celebration! Be sure to cash in on your IOU when you return from California (with some salsa??) :-)

Love you and thanks for you and Pat being here for me this week and always.
