Chillin’

11 Jun

Really don’t like the continuation rule in the NBA. On the plus side, I’m thankful bball is on though cause I’m wired and need to get some paperwork done tonight before I go to bed. And no, I don’t generally count the NBA as actually bball but it’s the finals and it’s Kobe (our cat’s namesake) so it works for me.

Nice evening here, solid dinner with a good friend (Panera never disappoints) then a little sweat at the Norfolk Y. Dawn’s in Vegas for work, how come my business trips are always to Wisconsin? For the record, I fly out again at the end of this month.

Been reading again, one recommended by one of the craziest and neatest women who was down at Duke with us. The Hole In Our Gospel is a new one by Richard Stearns who is the head honcho at World Vision and tells a good story.

He talks about his life as a follower of Christ how he did all he was supposed to and had a great life. He was a great husband and father to five great kids, really involved in leading his church, and also the CEO of Lenox China. Making bank. And then God called him to lead World Vision and everything changed. His book is a great challenge to the wealth of the Christian West and a call to live out the Gospel in the ways that God calls.

Yes, I promise to take a break after this one and read on a different topic:)
