I thought someone cut them, but I saw two little buck teeth marks
right next to the cut mark. Shocking experience!
So here's my repair job.
precautions next year, like staying home or not working. As one person
mentioned today - I hope they got their freaking Elmo.

We put up outside lights, popped popcorn, and let the kids pick out a
movie to watch.
Included in our outside lights is a Moravian star.

Yesterday, Joshua (our almost 4 year old son) was coloring with stencils at the table while I was picking up in the living room. He called to me "Mom, look at my picture. It's the Christmas light show!" Holy cow -- for those of you have seen the light layout, the stars along the top are where the colored snowflakes are. And, Joshua informed me that the banners are supposed to be the rolling snowscapes -- can you tell our family has been eating, thinking, breathing Christmas light show??? Joshua is SOOO pumped!
Whatever it takes ... marketing. The non-Blockbuster video store said
they'd give me a free rental if I allowed them to cut up my Blockbuster
card. I had that thing for 20 years! But to save a buck, I handed it
over. I wonder if Blockbuster could get me a new one? I wonder if
Blockbuster will get involved in card cutting wars.
I'm currently taking donations - anyone have an unused Blockbuster card?
Regardless of who generates the concept - it's more important what the concept is communicating. In this case, it's a beautiful picture of how God reigns over the ugliness that life can dish out and how things simply "aren't right."
If you use loops in worship, then you'll appreciate the audio loop we used to back this song. It was created using Apple's GarageBand. If you ever wanted to hear me sing falsetto - there you go!
Here's the video - with Delirious? singing of course. And we used Apple's low end / but nice iMovie to produce it. I'm not a fool to put my voice up on the internet! If you like their song, you can buy it online at Amazon.
one. That's quality control in Topeka's light show! We're out to blind
the musicians in the windows this year!!!
and teardown over years! And maintenance will be thankful the tape
from last year won't strip paint and wallpaper. This generation

Are you ready to get frisked before each worship gathering?
Was it coincidence or divine appointment? Personally, I don't believe in luck. Think about it. He wasn't even supposed to work tonight. Plus, out last date night was October 10th - just happened to be the last night Lucas worked at the other restaurant. And to top it off, two TBCers had dinner in the booth next to ours at the same time and said to Lucas, "By the way, TBC is the best church in town." Coincidence? You tell me.
PS - Lucas, if you are reading this - we'll get you a full itenerary of our upcoming dates for you. We follow good service!

attendan e. While church attendance has nothing to do with how
spiritual one may be, this article does reveal and confirm the
feelings of the author and maybe some others who feel like him when it
comes to church.

worked after a year of hibernation.
gives free refills in a new cup. They let you keep your old cup to
throw away. BUT if you don't throw it away, you can take THAT cup
back to refill on your next refill - filling two cup. Then 4. Then
8, 16, 32 and so on. After about 20 trips for refills, you'd have
over one million drinks! I wonder how many trips to the bathroom

two weeks to accomplish what has been done in 3 days. Guys on the
lift today were Rick Wenger, Bill Riphahn, and Steve Williams. My
favorite part was Burger King lunch, and working in the office in my
gifted arena - administrative leadership.
Linda Metzler jumped on board today to be the front line with phone
calls to volunteers. It kinda happened by accident - or divine
appoint, like how I like to look at it!

Cool idea. If anyone does it, let me know. I'd love to see a copy of a Bible with YOUR handwriting in it.
This is a good reminder of how God's Word is incredibly influential today and will be forever.
