FINGERNAILS: First let me say, yes, my fingernail polish has worn off and I no longer glow in the dark. But let me also say that there IS another basketball tournament in Childress this weekend, so who knows if my little friend will be there … :)



PODCASTS: For those of you who are gluttons for punishment and follow my sermons on podcast, I’ve started a new series of lessons called, “7 Habits of Highly Effective Christians.” The first week I preached on “Faith” and then last week it was on “Love.” The first sermon on “It’s All About Faith” had to be one of the most challenging sermons I’ve done in a long time. It challenged my faith for what I believe and for who I say I am. If you want, you can learn more here.


I told you a while back that we were hunting a new ride. Well we sold The Beast and here’s what we got. I’m not sure how easy it will be to keep the black color looking clean, but it’s sure pretty when it is.

We always name our vehicles, but haven’t come up with any names for this one … any suggestions?

    That black has a commanding presence for sure. No idea what to name it. I think people who feel a compelsion (as Barney Fife would misuse that word) to name a car really need to … never mind!

  2. Dcmba says:


    Kidding. My wife drives a Tahoe.

    Now you will be ready to give him a ride when the President comes to town.

    I definitely know what job I want though, Childress Preacher. The fame, the hours, the MONEY!

    Big Z, from Surfs up movie. Then you can hang a shell with a Z carved in it from the rearview mirror. Ok I have been watching way too many kid movies. Like the new ride, more importantly does Lea?

  4. blogprophet says:

    yeah, i have intended to share some searches that lead people to my blog. it is always amusing.

    actually, there have been over 500 hits from people searching for clouds. the one cool picture has drawn more people to my blog than anything I have written. I should start a blog just about clouds. it would be number one quickly.

    Carbon Sasquatch!

    Seriously, does your congregation give you a fuel stipend!?!? LOL

  6. Mommysmart says:


    I love all of the referrals. They are really funny. Especially fasting from the KJV.

    As for the new ride, It looks like night rider on steriods. We have a black car that is NEVER clean. But then neither is our white one, so I may not be the best source for advice on vehicle cleanliness.


  7. Brandon Voss says:

    yes, all you need is a red laser added to the front end and you have the mix of the A-Team Van and Knight Rider.

    Trey, I recently added Idigitalweb.us to google. I will make you a logo soon and add it to my site. I was wondering if you could add my logo to the bottom of your website page. I hope to hear from you soon! Bro!

    Eco-Killer? Carbon Sasquatch? I’m still rolling on the floor. Too funny.

    You don’t realize I’m downsizing. If you saw the beast I drove you’d understand we’re downsizing. It was a monster, but remember I have a family of 6 to get around. The Beast was an Excursion, dubbed the Exxon Valdez by tree huggers.

    The new ride is an ’04, new to us, but not new at all.

    I like the “Z.” That’s a good one.

  9. Matt H. says:

    The perfect name for it is………



  10. Amy says:

    Love the new ride! I think I saw it in the parking lot Sunday morning and said…”I bet that’s Trey’s”. Might not have been yours, but I thought of you when I saw it!

    As far as keeping it clean…it’s easy!! Just keep a $5 bill in the ashtray and run it throught the Turtle Hole every day or two! Voila…clean! Jason says we are going to need an “Amy’s carwash” put into our budget! That would be nice!

    Our’s is an ’04, too! Twins!

  11. That Girl says:

    I’ve got a Black Trailblazer (smaller, but still black) and it stays pretty clean as long as you wash and vacuum it every Saturday.

    If gas goes to 4.25 like was mentioned on CNN Sunday, I may have to go to Toyota like My Tony!

  12. That Girl says:

    Oh, the name… how ’bout Long Black Train

  13. Danny says:

    LOL at your referrals. They are a hoot.

    I got one recently looking for a church of christ 15 minute sermon. Whoever searched for that probably found out that this is does not exist!

    got a name for ya
    “The Morgan Tang”


  15. Jenny Close says:

    How about “The Raven”? It could have two connotations depending on your mood for the day. First, it could mean I will ‘Nevermore’ own any other car besides this one. Or, it could mean will “NEVERMORE’ buy another car like this one.

  16. Zach says:

    Simply this:
    You had the Beast –
    This needs to be Beauty – but “black beauty” you can get by with that – it’s lea’s car!

    Its not mocho by any means.. haha..
    Good luck..

  17. TREY MORGAN says:

    Zach … you’re killing me man. Not macho? What? A Z-71 “off road” 4×4? Not macho? Wait till I get my grille guard and 2 inch lift! 😉

    Not macho … where is the love.

    Anyway congratulations. I had a black car once. Boy they shine up pretty.

  19. cdj says:

    Vader…first thing I thought of when I saw it, “Luke, I am your FA-ther…”

    So, I like Vader.

  20. Brie says:

    Bean. Cause it’s black, and I just made bean salsa with black beans in.

    Not very tough, I’ll admit…

  21. Toni Burns says:

    Beautiful car. We have the 2003 same color. We love it and enjoy it so much, it is a problem to clean but it sure looks pretty when it is clean!
    Congratulations, I hope you enjoy it.

  22. Brandon Voss says:

    Trey see so many people Love you! If I said I was a preacher I wonder if they love me too? :)

  23. TREY MORGAN says:

    Man, so many good ones to choose from for the name. I may have to do a poll. ha

    Brandon … I love you dude!

    Zach – I’m going to run you down with my black beauty :)

  24. WendyC says:

    the Black Rider

    anyone in the family a LOTR fan?

  25. Shane Coffman says:

    Nice, nice new wheels. I had a Yukon back when I drove a company vehicle. It was my most favorite ride ever.

    How about calling it “The MIB”…
    for “The Morgans in Black”?

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
