Hooray Tulsa!

So Joyful and I had a wonderful time in Tulsa this past weekend. We went to the Tulsa Workshop and heard some great speakers. Our favorite was probably Patrick Mead...he had wonderful messages and was really funny, too. It was also great to see Alice and (briefly) Shane. Shane and Terry did a wonderful job putting on the workshop. Were there things I've liked better previous years? Sure, but this year was great, too and I heard the things that I needed to hear. Like someone said at Saturday night worship time...there weren't many people there due to the massive snow storm, but the people that needed to be there were there. I know Shane checks this thing from time to time, so thanks for a great workshop and for letting Joyful and I stay at your house...not that you had much choice...we are family, after all :) And if by some chance Terry Rush should find his way to this, a big thanks to him, too. I was a little sad that we didn't go to first service at Memorial because we made it a whole Workshop Weekend without hearing Terry give a lesson...but he did stop by and say hi when I was sitting with Alice on Friday and was as friendly as ever.

As a side note, when we were in Tulsa we went to the mall and I got a sweet new hat for when Joyful and I go to the Cubs game on May 17th...I think it's pretty cool.

So you know how sometimes you're really looking forward to the weekend so you can spend time with your wife and relax, and then the weekend comes and after what seems like no time at all, it's already Monday? This past weekend I had the total opposite of that, and it was wonderful. Joyful and I spent all weekend together...we didn't have any meetings to go to or anything specific to do, other than go to church on Sunday...we just enjoyed spending 2 days together. Somehow it seemed as though time was standing still. We sat out in the back yard for like 2 hours on Saturday because it was so gorgeous outside. On Sunday it wasn't quite as nice outside, but we still managed to get the Christmas lights taken off the bushes up front and got started packing for Tulsa this weekend.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that I had the nicest weekend in recent memory this past weekend. I imagine this coming weekend will be right up there, too, with us going to Tulsa and all.
