Eddie's Attic

Everyone in the Atlanta area should drop all their plans for Wednesday and go to Eddie's Attic. Evan McHugh will be releasing his new CD and Garrett Moore will be opening up. These are two great friends of mine and are both excellent musicians. Doors open at 6ish and Garrett should start promptly at 8. So tape American Idol and go enjoy a real show.

O Canada

Well, I'm back from a week long skiing adventure in Whistler, Canada. For the most part it was a great trip. The first day of skiing was a little rough as it rained most of the day, sleeted and hailed some in the afternoon, and gusted 50 mph winds at the end of the day. But the conditions got better the next few days, like skiing in knee deep powder...oh so good.
Along with my gracious family, I went with my buddy Zach who is working right now with a ministry in Branson, Missouri called Doulos. We had a fun time talking to a lot of the locals there. "No worries" is a common expression when you are saying goodbye. Also, saying "right" after every sentence is also very popular.

I think for me, these trips to the tops of the peaks make me appreciate more than most other places the beauty of creation. These massive rocks covered in snow seem to point out a small fraction of how beautiful and mighty our Creator is.

"For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind, and declares to man what is his thought, who makes the morning darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth--the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!" - Amos 4:13

Anna Nicole

Here's a great reflection on the life and death of the late Anna Nicole Smith. It's a great reminder to me of how deceived we can become into thinking the great American dream will lead to any kind of happiness.

"The fact is that I am not better than Anna Nicole or the men who she stripped for, save the grace of God. What I most desperately needed was forgiveness of sin, for I am all the more a worm, wretched and blind, rotten and wicked. Yet, having become a debtor to mercy and a child of God, it is my privilege to go to the Anna Nicole’s with the love of Christ and say, “Go and sin no more.” It is my lifelong calling to call sinners to repentance who long to be like the Marilyn Monroe’s to long to be like Christ. It is my earnest prayer that, whether in life or in death, Jesus Christ would be on display, that words would be spoken of Him and His great salvation, and that all would be gain because I have treasured Him."
