Life is fun


We did the piano and vocal today for "Breathing Room." It's a very simplistic, "unplugged" CD. But I believe it will really minister to people. Keith and Kristina and I had a long day with Barry (his Dad) and got so much done it was amazing. Barry was amazed at how quick I bang things out. That's good or bad, I guess, depending on whether you like the CD! Keith is finishing the cover now and Barry is going to mix the CD this week. And I'm just...waiting patiently. Can't believe we did this at Christmas. The time is flying.


Time flies when you're having fun! That's something I do well. I believe everything we do should be fun or we shouldn't do it. Now before you say, "Some things have to be done, and they are not fun, and you just need to face it..." I don't agree with you. I'm the person who does my housework while blasting T.D. Jakes on the TV (I Tivo him) I don't want to just walk around non-chalontly doing housework, I want to have an experience while I'm doing it. If it's not T.D. Jakes, then I've got something on XM radio like salsa. Ya gotta get moving and enjoy life. It's just the way it should be. Decide this day that you will not scrub your tub one more time in boredom. 

Ecclesiastes 8:15 NLT says, "So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people to do in this world than to eat, drink and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them." I think that's why we are so bent on having fun with our staff. I don't want to go to a job I find boring nor work with people I don't like. Life is just simply too short. Yesterday as we were leaving to go to lunch the guys went on to the van ahead of me and I ran out the doors excitedly hollering after them in one of my goofy moods. They hardly flinched because it's just common behavior but a telephone repair guy was out working on one of the poles outside the church and he came out looking at me like I was having a mental breakdown. Which...made me laugh even harder. 

Today when I was done recording Barry asked me, "Did you have fun?" I was really intense most of the day he probably could hardly tell whether I did or not, but I honestly did. There's nothing more fun and exciting to me than creating.

Creating sermons...
creating songs...
creating table centerpieces...
creating babies.
