Turkey go all changed about because I had to take Dad to the VA Emergency room. He wound up having a infection in the bladder and the urinary track. They admitted him and found Ecoli in his prostate glands, so as of (Saturday) he is still there and we are waiting on what is going to happen next.

Oh and THANKS Miss Bee, I will take that advice.

Happy Thanksgiving

This morning I started off the day by completing my VA application for health benefits, finally. then, I watched a great cheesy Hallmark movie. I have completed that, made a checklist for Friday and Saturday and now I will not think about work or ministry anymore today, just family. Heading down in a bit to spend the day in Waco for Thanksgiving. All of our kids were gone last night except one. His Dad is just minutes away but he does not have anything to do with him so he will be here by himself , although we did invite him to come with us. He plays a lot of online video games so I guess that is his thanksgiving.

We got the news Wednesday that we will be replaced at Faith house sometime between next week and the first of the year. TC will become the floater so that will give her much more time off. Once we figure out how to do this I think it is going to be better for us. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

This Week

The week ended very well with positive things for Chad. Some of you may remember he lost his drivers license while in the Army and he is just a few days from getting them back. Saturday, we took the kids here at Faith house to Asheville mall to finish the clothes shopping for the year. Today, I preached at Jonas Ridge Baptist Church and then we had some friends over that use to work here at Crossnore. Sadly, my driver Denny Hamlin did not win the championship today, but he had a good year.
Tomorrow, Chad Rogers and myself are meeting the Dean of Students at Lees-Mcrae College for a tour and lunch. chad is excited as the town of Banner Elk is where he wants to start a new church. It looks like another exciting week gearing up.

TC and I are doing some final cleaning this morning in our room at the pregnancy center and then hanging out a bit with each other. We are praying for clarity. Tonight is the organizational meeting for the pregnancy center. We have a legal eagle coming to guide us through this process and the steering committee will be approving the first board, budget and bylaws.

Over the next few days Chad has two more court dates that will hopefully end this drama and he can get his driving privileges back. Lord, I hope he has learned form all of this.

I feel the need for speed, or just vent. We are for sure coming to our end here at Faith House. We have tried and tried to make the kids understand but they seem to be gone too far. They just do and behave as they please with no regard to the rules. some of them wold leave if they could but they have no where to go and they just want do what is right. I think TC and I are just burned out. anyway, it looks like there is a chance that TC could just work relief and that will be good. We will see in a few weeks. Well as the Outlaw Josey Wells would say, " I reckon so"

Finishing Well

Well the week is finishing out well. I have two rooms almost complete and those are by E-3 Student Ministry and Newland Christian Church. This place is just gonna be awesome. We spent most of the day with David and Christie on Friday, or at least TC did. I worked most of the day but did get to have lunch with them. Boy, I must really be getting older as Friday night I am taking a early evening nap just to to stay up and watch a movie with TC.
Today is busy as well as we have our Pastor's Conference and breakfast this morning and then some more work at the office. Tonight is our Faithriders meeting and we are having it at Carolina Barbecue. This should be fun. I will be ending the weekend preaching Sunday at White's Memorial Baptist Church and then starting the week off right with two meetings Monday morning. I really have to start planning better!

We had a great time at the conference and some needed relaxation. Getting back to the mountains was nice, plus we missed the first snow. Monday and Tuesday TC and i really got a lot done. We moved some furniture to the Pregnancy Center and with the help of a local landscapers crew moved in the desk set to the office/Conference room. The Center is really shaping up. We also repainted the bedroom of the association's apartment, moved in a new couch and completely changed my office around to include a love seat and sitting area. This will be a great place for meetings. Tonight we are very tired and dealing with the water being out at our house (where the kids live) and some drama here at Faith house. Tomorrow I have to take chad down to Gaston for a court date. Tomorrow is hump day and I feel it.

Off We Go

We had intended to take Thursday off to prepare leaving this morning but that did not work out so instead we both got up and took Krista to school and went to Fabio's in Newland for breakfast. Great place to eat and see everyone at the same time. Good PR for me. We had to get our cottage car inspected so that took a while and then had a Stepping Stone Meeting at 10:30 which lasted until 12:30. One great thing that happened yesterday was finding some much needed items for the pregnancy center at the sales store and getting a 70% discount. So, it's off this morning to Myrtle Beach for the conference and a weekend of relaxation and education.

Getting There

A new week and it has started good. Working around Faith house repairing gutters and getting up some leaves. Who knows what the new year brings for us here at Crossnore. We will see! Worked on the new computer system at the office yesterday and when it is complete we will be adding Quick books, so the secretary can do a better job and it makes it easier for her.
Ran up to the center yesterday and checked in with a crew starting on the waiting, entry room. They have so many great ideas and it is gonna look great.

Today and Wednesday are full of meetings and interviews of potential Board members for AveryPRC and a meeting with our Director of Development. We are getting ready to head to Myrtle Beach Friday for the conference of the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship. We are looking forward to the conference but also to see the Ocean.
