Monday is my day off and it was a fun and productive day.
8:30 am - Golf with one of our Deacons, Danny Baker. We've been playing together for a number of months now (although we did take a summer break - too hot to play golf!) and really enjoy a nine hole course in Glendale. We've probably played our worst round yesterday and still had a good time.
10:15 am - A quick look-see of the book section at my favorite Savers store. No bargains were to be found.
11:30 am - Doctors appt. At least no blood was taken this time!
12:30 pm - Lunch while watching an episode of "New Tricks," a British detective show that I've come to rally enjoy.
1:30 pm - Power Nap!
2:00 pm - I spent a couple of hours looking over the Advent texts I'll preach in December and have come up with a tentative sermon series entitled "The News at Advent." The working titles for each of the texts:
"You have to hear the bad news to appreciate the good news" - Dec. 6
"There's more to the news than meets the eye" - Dec. 13
"The news makes you jump for joy" - Dec. 20
"The best news of all" - Dec. 24
4 pm - I continued reading a book entitled, "The Girl on the Train," by Paula Hawkins. This thriller spent months at the top of the New York Times Best Sellers List. I'm starting to see why.
5:30 pm - My youngest daughter, Katie, her husband, Josh, and their two kids are spending the Thanksgiving holiday with us. We enjoyed dinner together and playing with the two grandbabies. Josh and I also watched the second half of Monday Night Football, hoping that New England would be beaten by Buffalo. Didn't happen.
10 pm - Lights out
