MANLY GARDENING

It’s been a good week. Busy as always. Trips out of town to check on the sick, hospital board meetings, T-ball games and services at the prison were just a few of the activities this week.

  • GARDENING: Lea and I spent the week setting out flowers in the flower beds. It’s something I’ve learned to like because that’s what she likes to do. Please, don’t revoke my man card. I still love “men” stuff, but if the most important person in my world likes to plant a flower garden, then I’m going to learn to like flower gardens too. I just like doing anything that requires spending time with her. I hope my marriage is as long and full of love as Ted & Mildred’s that I’m going to tell you about tomorrow. Great story. You won’t want to miss it.
  • SEXY: Speaking of spending time together. Not too long ago, I was helping Lea clean house. Neither of us like the job of dusting and I always come up with an excuse to get out of it. I’ll do anything but don’t make me dust. I finished all the vaccuuming and decided I’d dust one small room just to be nice. As Lea came through the room I wanted her to notice that I was actually dusting, so I asked if my dusting was looking good. She stopped and looked over at me and said, “You know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you looking sexier to me than you do right now with a dust rag in your hand.” My chest swelled with pride, and I finished dusting the “entire house” in all my sexiness.
  • TEENAGERS: We have a party at our house tonight for a couple of the graduating senior boys at church. That means I’ll be helping clean house today. We’re expecting about 30 people. It’ll be burgers and hot dogs on the grill. And probably no bed time till midnight. Sheesh … teenagers make me tired.
  • GIANTS AREN’T BIG: I love what God shared with me this week through His word. He kind of kicked me in the gut and reminded me to trust Him. In 1 Samuel 17, the armies of the Living God were all cowering in their tents went Goliath challenged them. Then David shows up and does something amazing. Instead of comparing his size to Goliath’s, he compares God to Goliath. Goliath looked like a tiny ant. That’s the mistake the Israelite army made. They were comparing Goliath’s size to theirs instead of God’s. I want to be like David, so when Goliath comes in the form of cancer, sickness, depression, death or some other big monster, I’ll say, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head…” David rocks!
  • PREACHING JESUS: I’m excited about Sunday. I’m preaching about Jesus. There’s really no better topic. Preaching about Jesus is like preaching an action movie. There was nothing boring about Jesus’ life and the sermon shouldn’t be boring either. My hope always is that if you attend church on Sunday, it is one of the BEST hours of the week! I believe people should look more forward to church than they do Lost, 24, or American Idol. When the lesson is about Jesus, it’s hard not to be excited. We just can’t get too much of Jesus, and he must be the church’s main focus. Last week I didn’t get a sermon on the sermon page, but I’ll try harder this week to get it done.
  • BLOGGING: One last thing. One of the best things I like about blogging is getting to meet so many new people. I love the emails I get in my inbox and the comments to the posts. We’ve really had some good discussion lately. Thanks for making blogging fun.

    Trey,

    You should put that picture on the blog for all to see. I am laughing so hard right now!

  4. Gallagher says:

    Sounds like a busy week, but a profitable one – especially since your wife got you to dust and foudn the motivation to get you to do the whole house! Ha Ha

    Giants — you got to love them because they make us stronger….No giant is too big for God!

    AMEN brother.

    The picture of the giant smelling a daisy is funny!

    But i do like the gas sign better.

    BTW- don’t be telling my wife that you are doing housework or she will expect me to start doing it too!

    Sounds like a fun week! I enjoy working in my garden too, but I have yet to get my hubby in there. That’s all right as he distracts the kids while I work.

    Now, as far as the dusting … I have definitely told my husband before that nothing’s sexier than seeing him wash the dishes. There’s just something about your man helping with housework, knowing he wants to do it for you and the family, so there’s not so much for one person to do.

    And I wasn’t trying to manipulate him, honest!! (o;

    Glad to help you out Monica. It is a good pic.

  12. Don says:

    trey-
    Tilling, planting, fertilizing, weeding= all manly.
    Arranging, re-arranging= not manly.
    Adam was a gardener.

    As for the “sexy dust bunny”? I’ll leave that alone.

  13. Keith Davis says:

    The photo is hilarious!! Thanks for checking out my blog. Glad to see yours. I love the way you put it that preaching Jesus is like preaching an action movie (my favorite kind by the way). He is awesome!!! Look forward to getting to know yoiu through the blog world.

  • 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.
