• Summer is always a busy time around our house.  School is out and the boys are involved in summer camps, trips and activities.  My schedule fills up with activities like VBS, speaking engagements, summer camp and a little family vacation.  One of our favorite activities is the Red River Family Encampment at the end of this month.  The RRFE takes place in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico and some really good speakers show up to build us up and encourage us.  If you have a little time at the end of this month, consider making the RRFE … you’ll love it. 

  • I’ll admit I’m really excited about an upcoming announcement I’m going to make on my blog. There’s something I’m going to do that I never imagined doing.  God placed on my heart a couple of months ago to do this, and I looked for every excuse in the world to not do it.  A month later, every excuse I can come up with, God has removed.  What is it?  I can’t wait to tell you … but you’ll have to wait, because I can’t tell you yet! :)
  • Taylor and I leave Sunday afternoon for Miami.  It should be a three day road trip in his little car.  I think he’s ready to get there and get busy working with the church.  During our drive, it’s worked out to where we’re going to be stopping to say “Hi,” to three different bloggers and blog readers.  It ought to be fun.  Click here to see the route we’re taking.  Some of you have made some great suggestions about things to see and places to eat.  Let me know if you have any more suggestions.  
  • Lea celebrated her birthday this week.  We snuck off to a little town not far from Childress to have lunch together and do some shopping.  That night about 10:00, we made her a chocolate cake from scratch. Other than a pretty big mess, it all turned out okay. It is amazing what Lea does for the Morgan family (laundry, cooking, cleaning, taxi driver, on and on). The boys and I will never be able to do enough nice things for her to repay the goodness she shows to a houseful of Morgan boys.
  • In the sports world right now, we’re loving that the Texas Rangers are actually doing well. After years of suffering through losing seasons, it’s nice to see the Rangers winning some ball games.  The Morgan family loves watching the Rangers play live, and so we’re hoping to make it to the Ballpark in Arlington a few more times this summer.
  • Some have asked about the Dump Fund pledges … Terri sent me an email yesterday and $11,600.00 has come in to the fund.  YEA! We give God all the glory.

    Is your upcoming announcement that dirty joke that you haven't told us yet?

  2. fumblingtowardseternity says:

    I think you're adopting a baby from the dump people.

    That's my guess — you should start a pool to guess what Trey's big announcement is!

  3. Scott says:

    Trey, On Monday you will be near Destin, FL. I will be about 30 miles out in the Gulf on a boat with a my 11 year old looking for snapper, grouper, amberjack . . . I'd say stop by but we might be hard to catch.

    Wish your road trip with Taylor was sending you our way … I'd love to meet you. My summers (as a minister) were the high point of every year. I'd save up my Monday "off" days that I seldom took during the school year and spend them with the family. I was very blessed with elders that encouraged me to do that. Summers were fun. Now? It's 24/7/365.

  5. L.C.T. says:

    How exciting. Have your boys broken up from school already?! Schools don't finish here until July 17th!

    Looking forward to the announcement and hurrah for the dump fund!

  6. Donna G says:

    love a good teaser to take me into the weekend…..

    Did I get to say happy Birthday Lea? IF not….happy birthday Lea!

    and a great summer :)

    Me and Dobbs live in Monroe!

    Peter – You're still waiting on that? :)

    Fumb … no dump babies, but you did get a chuckle out of Lea with that one :)

    Scott – Where is the love, my brother. Can you not pick us up and take us with you? :)

    Greg – One of these days we'll be coming the CA way and I'll take you up on that offer :)

    LCT – Your $25 for the dump fund wound up being about $100 :)

    Donna … Thanks, and I'll pass that on to Lea.

    Jel – Thanks … and thanks for the package. It came yesterday :)

    Royce … Hope I get to see you.

    Dude: I know what the big announcement is. You are going to become the chaplain for the Texas Rangers and get to travel with the team. That's great Trey. LOL! :-)

  11. Shayla says:

    WOW you do have a full schedule!!!
    I hope you find lots of random people along the way to share the gospel with :)

    I scrolled down and read your blog about "Failing to be like Jesus" and I really enjoyed it! Thank you for posting it :)

    I hope you have a great Summer brother. You are always in my prayers!

  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
  • Chin up Childress Bobcats. We couldn't be prouder. Great fight tonight.
