It's always good to get ahead, isn't it? Put a little in the ol' reserve for a later day. Well, I got to do just that this past weekend when I was given the honor of speaking at Carolina Forest Community Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. This is one less message I'll need to prepare come February of 2009, when the weight of being a lead pastor is FULL ON!

The experience in Myrtle Beach was wonderful. Selina and I got a relaxing getaway, spending Saturday evening on the beach. Then, Sunday morning I spoke at 2 services to 700+ people. Thanks to Charles Fox and the leadership of CFCC for the opportunity. Below is a video of the message. It was done in under 30 minutes, so no excuses for not watching!

This morning, Selina and I found out that we are having a “Mayby” Boy! My poor wife was only able to enjoy the announcement amid continual nausea... first it was morning sickness, then it was a sinus infection, and now the 96-hour bug!

We were only able to record the Ultrasound after the initial exam of the Mayby, so by the time the camera was rolling we knew we had a boy on our hands. But, we did manage to catch on video our little guy putting his feet in his mouth (if he’s anything like his dad, it won’t be the last time!) and chewing, apparently (at 2:20 on the video).

When we got back to the car, I presented Selina with a Congrats! card and a pair of blue booties… yes, I had a pink pair on hand, just in case. She cried… I love when I make that happen (well, these kind of tears, anyway)!

Our son’s name will be Gannon. His middle name is yet to be determined. Feel free to reply to this posting with any suggestions (all names are being considered - except Maria... that's just weird).
