Weekly Re-Cap / Thoughts

- Beautiful weather up here all of last week! (Except for the “tornado” like weather a couple of nights…and all the hail, and lightning strikes that caused fires all over)

- I had a pretty interesting trip to Plattsburgh.

- I think I upset some of my relatives about my remarks about PT Cruisers. It turns out 3/6 of my relatives in Texas all drive PT Cruisers! They should join one of the many PT Cruiser clubs¬†across North America. Maybe I will too…nahhhh!

- I guess that the Celtics will have to win it all at home. Oh well. They didn’t score enough touchdowns. Go Boston!

- Ed Young (I love his blog) did an incredible job speaking for the One Prayer series. His “WAKE UP!” message really spoke to me! I needed to hear that.

- Ed spoke about Eutychus, who fell out of a third-story window during church. Eutycussed too if you fell out of a window! haha…I got a good laugh out of that one.

- I got to be down in Colonie again for the Sunday morning service! I love talking to the VIP’s (volunteers) down there. They have such a passion for that location!

- Leah and I went for a nice Sunday night drive. Besides guzzling all that gas, Leah refused to take her door off of my Jeep. We got a lot of awkward stares while driving around with one door on and one door off!

- Yesterday was Father’s Day!

- Sonora Dodd, of Washington, first had the idea of a “father’s day.” She thought of the idea for Father’s Day while listening to a Mother’s Day¬†sermon in 1909.

- President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day. President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent in 1972.

- Why didn’t Calvin Coolidge just do it?

- “If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.” — Bill Cosby
