[ A lot has happened recently but nothing really detrimental to your health. I spoke at HEAT on Friday. It went well but my gift is not in talking to crowds. I heard a sermon on the radio Friday morning that mentioned Moses giving excuses why he couldn't talk for God; why he couldn't be used by God. It was then compared to the apostle Paul using every opportunity he could to preach the gospel - even when he was in chains and praying for boldness instead of deliverance! So rad. It was a real encouragement. So, even though I am not a crowd pleaser, at least I was obedient and I know God used me.

I hung out with Michelle, Jeff and Esther all Sunday. It was really good to just chill all Sunday for once... really good. Bless you Michelle. I am glad you were encouraged.

I still haven't heard anything on the "Operation Aihpos" front. I think it may be my turn for action.

This weekend is going to be hectic. I am DJing in Maple Ridge for the better part of the day. If it all goes the way I think it will, I will be there for 8 hours. Crazy. After that I want to hang with Keela for her birthday at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Then Jonathan Inc. is having their CD release party at the Media Club at 9:00pm. Somewhere in there I wanted to get into the church to practice for our special on the 8th. So busy!

I guess that's it for now... but we'll have to wait and see. ]

[ I have to get some sleep.

It seems I have so much to do and I am still not actually spending time with people - building relationships – and that is the most important part of life. Where are my priorities? I spent a good amount of time this evening emailing people: something I needed to do. I had put it off for too long.

I watched Dancer in the Dark with Bethany, Dan and Joel tonight. Just as good as the first time I saw it. Pretty powerful and it leaves you speechless.

Here are some people that are on my heart: Joshua, Andrew, Bethany, Sophia, Kris, and Lori. Lord, be with these individuals. Give them Your peace and Your Joy. Meet their needs and draw them closer into You. Amen.

I have to get some sleep. ]

[ So much is going on and God is at the centre of all of it. Whenever I am right where God wants me everything falls into place. I have seen miracles this last week. Not healing blindness, not raising the dead, but miracles nonetheless. My God is big.

Work has been hectic. I have been filling in continuously since Friday for people that have had to miss work due to the weather. My job gets heavier and heavier as my personal workload gets larger. Once everything is back to normal I will have to catch up.

Bethany is home. Lord, bring her peace and rest. IMR is playing this Saturday and I am stoked. I have some DJ gigs coming up soon. I need to follow through with "Operation Aihpos" soon... so nervous. D&D is coming along nicely. Everyone seems interested in playing. I have a lot on my plate and I don’t see it crawling away anytime soon – a rather crude analogy. Apologies.

Take care, I shall rest with a quote from a film I saw this evening called "Equilibrium":

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams." -William Butler Yeats ]
