My friend Theresa and her husband Dennis are working at a children’s home in Cozumel, Mexico. Hurricane Dean when right through there 3 day’s ago. I emailed her last week and asked her if the hurricane was going to hit where she was and her response was:

“Yeah, looks that way right now…it is shifting some to the south but looks like it could be a direct hit. We are getting ready none the less. We have boarded up windows, moved a lot of furniture, and are getting the shelter ready at the church. We will be going to the church building tomorrow which is a hurricane refuge for the city and hang out there with a couple hundred people till it is over. Please be praying for us! WE will get back in touch when it is over and let everyone know how we are doing. I will be getting back into it after the storm.”

It’s been three days and I have yet to hear anything from Theresa. Please keep her and all those in Mexico in your prayers. If you get a chance drop by her blog and let her know you’re praying for her.


Lea and I are headed to Bristol, Tennessee this weekend for the NASCAR rases (insert redneck preacher’s joke here) with another couple from Childress. The other couple we’re going with attend at the Methodist church. Rickey asked me last week if we were going to try and convert him and his wife Angie while we were on this trip together. I told him we didn’t really want him, but we’d sure like to have his wife, Angie. :)

I’m really pumped about getting to spend some time away with Lea … without our kids. As you know, sometimes when you still have children at home, your wife plays the role of your children’s mother more often than she is plays the role of your wife. That’s why time away from your kids is extremely important in every marriage. There has to be a relationship outside your children. So, it’ll be good to spend some time with my wife this weekend and not my children’s mother.

Oh, and make sure you watch for me on television Saturday night, I’ll be sitting on the start/finish line with the big sign that reads “Real men love NASCAR.” :)


Sometimes it seems everything on my blog is very serious. Then there are times that everything is spiritual in nature. But for the past week it seems everything has been just the opposite. Every post this last week has seemed like it’s a cartoons, family news or not so serious stuff. Sorry about that. I hope that doesn’t bother you. I’ll get back to the “serious” stuff soon enough.

Since we’re talking about not-so-serious stuff lately, let me add that the other day I over heard a group of teenagers that were talking and one of them said, “did you know that I read that we only use 10% of our brains?” To which one of the others replied, “Wow, if we’re only using 10% of our brains now, can you imagine what we could do in this world if we just used the other 60%?” That made me laugh out loud.

    You can be light hearted all you want, Trey. The world is too full of bad things and serious things as it is and we all need a good laugh now and then and some light hearted humor.

    After all, God gave us the wonderful gift of a sense of humor and in some people, it is much under used!!

    Have a great weekend! Who’s keeping the kids, or are they old enough to be on their own and watch out for the little ones?

    Cheers & Blessings to you all today! Dee

    I appreciate that you vary your content.

    I think what you overheard is a classic. When we first moved to OK, one of the kids in our youth group said, “yep, that’s why they call us dumb Oakleys.”

    have fun with your wife

  11. DJG says:

    I will be looking for you. Who you pulling for at Bristol.

    I have Harvick and Kenseth in my A group…I did pick Kurt Busch as one in my B….thank goodness there will not be “snow angels”….

    Picking us both too much stress (he just don’t know it..)

    I can’t think of two nicer people who deserve to watch cars go round and round in a circle for a few hours….

  13. TREY MORGAN says:

    Lea’s kind sister is watching the kids. She lives in Dallas where we’re flying out of anyway. So it worked out nice.

    I’ll be pulling for the 24 or 48 car.

  14. Theresa says:

    Yeah, finally learned how to switch the language to English so I can leave a post hear. Another reason to learn Spanish quickly. We are doing great, thanks for the prayers. I have pictures up at my spot of our prep for Dean and time at the shelter. Have a great time at Bristol.

    Ha! 60% … great one!

    Your blog is about you, Trey… be yourself …wherever that takes you … we’re along for the ride.

    Have a great trip. Oh…and about the Methodist… an old joke … brushing away cobwebs here…

    A young Methodist minister was at his first church in a small town. He ran into a situation he didn’t know how to handle when he was asked to perform funeral duties for a Baptist person who had died. The Baptist preacher was out of town. He called one of his superiors and asked about doing a funeral for a Baptist. His Bishop said, “Son, keep up the good work … bury all the Baptists you can.”

    I thought we were rough just by trying to beat the Baptists to the local cafe on Sunday. I never thought of trying to bury them.
