Here are a few things that have caught my attention “this” week. There are some good, some bad and some really weird. Just click on the “this” to check them out.

  • I absolutely positively love this church. If they keep growing like they are they’ll need to purchase this for the balcony.

  • I think this article is one of the best I’ve seen on preachers, how to treat them and how to pay them. It’s an extremely touchy subject among churches, but I’m glad someone has spoken up. You can tell by the amount of comments it received that it touched a nerve. Maybe if we will heed the message, ministers will stop leaving the ministry by the truckloads. I pray every elder, deacon and church leader will read it.
  • I cannot get enough of this video from the 80’s era (caution, you’ll be singing it all day), but this video really creeps me out.
  • This is a recent picture of Lea’s closet. Seriously, okay maybe not.
  • I’ve recently discovered this website for men and fathers. It is a website oozing with testosterone (grunt here).
  • Two things make me the richest man in the whole world this and this. Put them together and you have this.
  • This product claims that it will make your relationship with your spouse closer. ARE YOU KIDDING ME, SHEESH?
  • A beauty pageant for Nuns? This is one of the craziest things I’ve ever heard of.
  • This is a fantastic article on church and its direction. Well done, Mr. Dodd.
  • An autistic boy swept out to sea and a dad who jumped in to save him. This is the incredible story of over 12 hours lost at sea. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to slowly drift away from your son and listen to his voice getting fainter and fainter .
  • Beer commercial or not, this is by far my most favorite commercial.
  • This is why I’m a Tony Romo fan.
  • This still makes my hands sweat, my knees weak and my heart race.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m always blessed by your visit.

    Interesting "check out" list. #3 & #7 are classic laughs lol! #13 is too great, way to go Lea!!!!=)

  2. Tyler @ Building Camelot says:

    Thanks for the mention Trey! I’m glad you enjoy the site.

    This is a great link list…I love the couples toilet. I’m thinking that some couples would have to be into a certain fetish to really enjoy that one.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Scott says:

    Great list! Adding you to my reader.

  4. Timbra says:

    comments on your list. . . He taught me how to praise my Lord and still play rock n roll. . ha!!!! Also, about preachers and money, it’s a hard line. we live where the mormon church is rampant and you aren’t even allowed in the temple and are even kind of “kicked out” if you don’t give your 10%. that’s a really odd and almost disgusting thing for us, it’s about the heart not the wallet, of course being in ministry, we also want to be paid “what we’re worth” and be able to afford to live in our community without making the sacrifices other people in the congregation wouldn’t make (like the mom who has to work to subsidise her husband’s preacher salary when the members of the conregation “preach” about how women should stay home with their kiddos) or going into insane debt, having no retirement or benefits. and at the same time wanting the congregation to be good stewards of the money that they receive by not going into debt to keep a preacher, etc. but it really does get down to the individual heart and every individual realizing the investment they are making. i dont know, i’m just rambling, i come from the “preacher” side but understand why we have a “poor man’s” mentality as the “church of Christ” too. maybe too much to delve into in a comment? sorry to confuse everyone. and i’ve only checked out three on the list so far :)

    The writers at SNL had the idea for that toilet eons ago! Doesn’t anyone remember their great commercial for the “Love Toilet” with Victoria Jackson and Kevin Nealon? Classic!

  6. Stoogelover says:

    The church videos (#3) are equally strange! As for the toilets, if only I’d seen this before I bought the flat screen television! As for the shoes, I swear my mother had more pairs of shoes than that! She kept hers in boxes, stacked floor to ceiling, about three boxes deep. Guitars I can understand, but shoes?

  7. nick gill says:

    You’ve got a beautiful family, Trey, and you set a GREAT example for other Christian men.

    God bless you guys! Be careful this weekend, and show all the love you can!

    I want to thank you for sharing the article on how to treat ministers. It is the best I have best I have read and hope and pray that every elder and deacon will read.

    I want to send congrats on your church growth. I think the bleachers will look great in your church balcony. :-)

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend.

  11. The Vannoy Family says:

    WHERE do you find this stuff!! Kyle NOW wants a “double seater” – thanks a lot! hahaha!

  12. Mike says:

    What a bunch of great links. Thanks

  13. Jeanne M. says:

    I knew you had to be kidding about Lea’s closet, but who in this world needs so many pairs of one color of shoe. Isn’t one of each enough for anyone???

    Very impressive description of the church in Childress. It takes lots of people to make that happen, not just the preacher. You folks are outstanding.

  14. TREY MORGAN says:

    Jeanne … AMEN and AMEN on th last two sentences. It takes a LOT of people.

  15. Danny says:

    Hey thanks for the mention Trey!

  • 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.
