- CHRISTMAS TREES: I asked Lea if we could put up the Christmas tree before Thanksgiving and she said “No! Wait till after Thanksgiving.” We even had a poll on TreyMorgan.net to see if I should get to. The final tally came out to “59 for and 52 against.” May I just say you 52 “against” people are party-poopers. Lea actually relented and told me I could put up the tree if I wanted, but believe it or not, we just haven’t had time. We’re hoping to get it done this weekend. I can’t wait.
- THANKSGIVING: We’re headed to Amarillo this weekend for Thanksgiving with Lea’s family. We swap out having Thanksgiving and Christmas with each family every year. I’m looking forward to a plate full of turkey, dressing (my favorite) and cranberry sauce. Thankfully we’ll plan the meal around the Dallas Cowboy football game.
- COWBOYS: We had about 15 high school kids over at our house last night watching the Dallas Cowboys game. Wow, can they ever get loud when something good happens. Who would have ever thought that the Cowboys would get off to a 9-1 start. Looks like their only real weakness is Roy Williams trying to cover receivers.
- HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Parker starts basketball games this week. Living in a town that’s out in the middle of nowhere will require lots of driving to out of town games. Good thing that gas is only 3.09 per gallon right now.
- NEW CHRISTIAN: I was thrilled to witness a new brother confessing Jesus as his savior and being baptized last week. What made this one so memorable? The man who became a Christian was an old cowboy who had lived life hard without much thought to where he’d spend eternity. We became friends following the funeral (I told you about him here) of a mutual friend. He began questioning how he was living his life about 2 months ago and called me last week to talk about it. He was baptized Thursday afternoon. As I was preaching Sunday morning, I looked out in the crowd of people and saw him sitting there worshiping with us. Too cool. Most people who knew him couldn’t believe he was “at church!” After services I told him, “See, I told you if you’d come the roof wouldn’t fall in!”
- FAVORITE POSTS: I told you last week I was thinking about my favorite posts over the last year. This was my very first post on this blog, so it has to be one of my favorites. This is my favorite post about my kids and how I can see God in our relationship. This is my favorite post about church and what it should look like. BUT, if I could only keep one post from my entire first year of posts, hands down, it’d be this one.
Quick question: What’s your favorite thing to eat on Thanksgiving Day?
