Back To Normal...
This past week we have been working feverishly in preparation for school to start. In Florida school starts quite early, August 8th! I have to admit I'm pretty excited about it, our oldest daughter has spent much of her summer at home, we both work and our youngest daughter goes to the summer program at the church, so I'm sure they're ready to get back in the swing of things. I return to preaching revivals this month, fly out next Saturday to Paducah, KY to preach revival in Brookport, IL, in September I'm in Toledo, OH, October is Myrtle Beach, SC, and in November I'm in Sylacauga, AL. Time will fly, the Lord will bless, Madsion will turn seven, Julie will have a birthday as well, and hopefully the hurricanes will pass us on by! As I age I realize that while I embrace and enjoy change, and a true propenant of it, I also enjoy structure, like to know where we're going and to have a general idea of howand when we're going to get there. My patience level doesn't allow me to sit around waiting and wondering, we need to do something. Change anything or change everything, but let's not sit around talking about it, and by all means let's have some type of a plan...even it isn't much! Maybe I'm Monk!

When you're in Paducah, look west and salute. I grew up just west of Paducah. All of my family still lives there. In fact, Darrell and I were married in the church you are going to preach at so tell anyone who is still there from nearly 21 years ago we said hello!

Hey, Neil, sounds like you're gearing up for some fun. When your in Toledo, where will you be preaching at? I'd like to come hear you.

I love Monk!!

Sounds like you have a busy schedule ahead of you. May God use you in every service, and people's lives are changed.

The words, "back to normal" caught me, since I'm reading Karen Hughes book called, "Ten Minutes from Normal". Good book!
