A FEW MORE PICTURES

Interesting, we have no phone here in the mountains and our cellular phones won’t get service, but I can drive a couple of miles to a little town and sit in the parking lot of a bar that offers free internet and check my email. I hope no one has taken pictures of my car sitting in the parking lot of the bar. I am glad I took my laptop. I’ve been able to work on a few lessons and check in with my secretary to find out what’s going on at home.

Looks like we’re headed home tomorrow. I’ve got a pile of things waiting on me. Hope you are doing well.

Blessings today…

Taylor, my friend Dane (who came with us) and Connor.

A visit to Elizabeth Town and cemetery (now a ghost town)

Charles Kennedy, an old west outlaw, was hung by a lynch mob.

Here’s were 1200 of us met this past Sunday morning for worship services.

A FEW PICTURES FROM THE MOUNTAINS

For a “flat-lander” like me these mountains are beautiful. We’ve had a great chance relax and listen to some great speakers. Here are a few pictures…

Hope everyone is well…

WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A REAL DAD

Having a great time at the RRFE. Heard a great lesson on “Growing Spiritually in Marriage.” I’ll share some of the notes with you later.

You’ve probably heard enough preaching today, bit if you didn’t, here’s a link to last weeks sermon for those who follow the weekly sermons.

RED RIVER FAMILY ENCAMPMENT

We are planning on making the encampment and listening to some great speakers, but I needed to show you this 17 inch Rainbow Trout that I caught on an Adam’s Parachute.

Pretty sweet, hua?

TIME OFF

Yee Haw (That means “Woo Hoo” for those not from Texas). Did you notice? It’s official. Your link at the top of the page should say http://www.treymorgan.net/. I finally got it changed over with the help of a very kind man. Your “rediscovering-church” links should still all work find, so really no need to update on your bookmarks and favorites.

——————————————————–

I really need some time off. And Red River, New Mexico, may be just what the doctor ordered. We’re headed for the Red River Family Encampment today and a week of rest, relaxation and spiritual growth. Here’s the encampment’s theme and scheduled speakers this year. Although I’m sure it will be good, the program doesn’t look very “family” oriented. I didn’t see any classes for families, marriage or parenting.

I really appreciate my Childress family giving me time off and away. I am excited that the forcasted temperatures for the week are supposed to be in the mid 70’s. I won’t miss the 90’s and humidity that we’ve had in Childress.

I’ll have very limited internet capabilities there. I do plan to try and post a couple of times, but I probably won’t be able to comment much. Hope your week is good.

Blessings till later …

Did I mention I got to do a little fly-fishing last year? I hope to do the same again.

THE FIRST BIKE RIDE

Okay, so I did a good job teaching Cooper (age 5) how to ride his bike, BUT I forgot to teach him a very important part …. how to use the brakes and stop. Oops! Lea and I laughed so hard at this video. Does that make us bad parents?

SEX AND THE BIBLE (Part 1)

Our worlds of Christianity and sexuality are commonly viewed as being miles apart. Someone once said, “Christian sex” is an oxymoron. We don’t talk about sex or preach about sex unless it’s a sermon that deals with “the sinfulness of sex” outside of marriage. When was the last time you heard a sermon preached on […]

HOW TO HANDLE CRITICISM

It doesn’t matter what your profession, criticism will be a part of it. It doesn’t matter where you are in life, there will always be criticism. Those with “high-profile” jobs can always expect double the criticism. Just like the football coach who if he runs the ball, everyone thinks he should have passed. If he […]
