• What? We have to pay consultants to name our babies now (read story here)? You need help coming up with a name? Come on people, just name your babies. But then I read a few minutes ago about the latest in a bizarre trend to make your baby’s name so unique that they’ll standout. Some recent real names include the following: ESPN, Armani, Timberland, Del Monte and Chevy. It will only be a matter of time before we’ll see Motorola, Diet Coke and Survivor. Incidentally, let me apologize in advance if any of my readers are actually blighted by one of these names. I take pity on you, especially if you’re called ESPN. After looking at some of these names, maybe we do need to pay a consultant to help some folks name their kids.

  • For those still doing some Christmas shopping, here’s a list of the Top 10 Worst Christmas Gifts ever. You’ll never believe which one was number one (shuddering).

  • My good friend TA has been sick and in the hospital lately. In the past he has served as one of my elders and has always been my friend. He has prayed with me, encouraged me and befriended me. I don’t get to see him very often anymore, but I think he’ll read this today. So, I just want to say to him, “I love you and miss you. Hope you’re feeling better soon.”

  • I’ve been outed by John Dobbs. No, I have never seen “It’s a Wonderful Life”, but it came on last night and I set my DVR to record it. I promise John, I’ll watch it before Christmas.

  • I’ve always thought deer hunting wasn’t fair. I think the deer should get to shoot back at the hunter, or better yet set up their own trap. Maybe that’s why this commercial really made me laugh.

  • We have had an amazing amount of local “community” visitors in our Sunday services over the past few months. The church in Childress does a great job at inviting their friends to come to worship with them. Many of our visitors ask me questions about the “church of Christ.” “Who are we and what do we believe” are just a couple of questions I get. So I did a sermon a couple of weeks ago on the subject of “Want to know more about the Church of Christ?” If you’re interested you can find it here. This past Sunday’s lesson was on “Wise Men Still Seek Him,” if you’re looking for a Christmas sermon.

  • Parker Morgan, student of the week at Childress High School… way to go kiddo!!!

  • Fellow bloggers, has anyone else’s blog stats gone crazy the past three weeks? I think it’s the Christmas crowd internet surfing. I guess more surfers equals more hits.

  • Eleven years ago I did the wedding of a couple of kids that have really turned out great. I’m proud of you two. Many of you know them, but if you don’t, click here and meet them. They write one of my favorite blogs in the world that blesses my life!

    You have amazing wonderful children. Congratulations to Parker
    Morgan. What an honor! I always knew he was meant to be something
    great. I know it comes with teaching, discipline and lots of love and some comes from genetics.

    yes, we watched “it’s a wonderful life” last night! i think a lot of people THINK they’ve seen it because it’s on every year, but seriously people . . watching the preview announcements for a week before doesn’t mean you’ve actually SEEN the movie!!! Just because you can quote “every time a bell rings, an angel get’s it’s wings” doesn’t mean you’ve WATCHED the movie!!!! good luck on actually watching it this year trey!

    We had a Christmas luncheon with some people in our congregation last Sunday and as an activity we took a little trivia quiz on “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I have actually seen it before, but it’s been so long! We all did rather poorly. I was excited that it was on TV last night; I watched it so I’ll do better on the quiz next time. (o;

    Congrats, Parker!

    Ahh! I was clicking through your links, feeling proud of your Parker, and wondering why in the world you have yet to see the greatest Chirstmas movie ever when….

    Oh that last one is me! Thanks, Trey. We feel so blessed to have had you in our lives through our marriage. I know that God has used you for lots of great things in the world and I am so grateful that he has used you in my life.
