BASKETBALL: According to the schedule … the Morgan family is officially playing basketball. Ten out of the last 14 nights we’ve had a ball game somewhere within a 200 mile radius. We’re enjoying watching both Connor (7th grade) and Parker’s (Varsity) teams play. Parker is in a tournament in Iowa Park, Texas this weekend. They kicked it off last night with back to back wins. We’re headed back tonight for another game. Go Bobcats.
MISSION FIELD: Taylor, who is a few months into the AIM program, is hoping to announce this weekend on his blog where he’ll be spending the next two years doing mission work. I’m sure that he and the other AIMers are ready to officially know where they’ll be serving. If you have time today, I’m sure he would appreciate a little prayer on his behalf.
RUNNING: I’m running the Wee-Chi-Tah trail half marathon next month in Wichita Falls, Texas. With basketball and a busy December, things have really cut into my running schedule. I’ve had some ask, so next week I hope to share with you on my running blog, a little about my past story of going from 260 pounds to the 200 pound guy I am today and a little of the diet I follow (yes, cereal is included in that diet… ha).
DATE: The reservations are made and the evening is planned. Tomorrow is the “big date” with Lea that I’ve been looking forward to. Occasionally, I like to talk Lea into really dressing up and going out to some place special for a “nice” date. I’d like to give you a few more details on where we’re going and what we’re doing, but we’ve talked another couple into going with us this year, and we’re keeping the details a secret from them. I’ll give you more details about our evening next week, but I can tell you that my wife will look incredible in her little black dress .
BABY NOAH: I’m amazed how God uses His people to minister to others who hurt. We’ve recently had Jacob and Amanda Henderson move to Childress from Mexico City. The Henderson’s have served as long time missionaries there in Mexico City. It was discovered a few months ago that their son, Noah, has Tay-Sachs disease. Tay-Sachs is a fatal genetic disorder in infants that causes the destruction of the central nervous system. Currently there is no cure for this disease, and at best most doctors have said Noah may only have a few years to live. The Henderson’s decided to move to Childress to be closer to family, friends and doctors during this difficult time. While I HATE the circumstances surrounding the Henderson’s move, I am honored that God has placed this beautiful family in my life. I know the Childress church and community will love, support and minister to this family during this very difficult time.
I’ve enjoyed holding this precious baby boy at church and listen to him laugh when he’s tickled. Lea and I were honored to be able to help paint Noah’s new room, but more than that we’re blessed and honored to pray for Noah and this beautiful family. I humbly ask that you say a prayer for them too.
