When Rabid Spider Monkeys Attack...

Wow, another month in DC has come and gone. November 7 will mark 5 months working at W*USA 9 - almost half a year! - and Oct. 30th marked my child being 3 months old. 3 months! Whoah.

This has been an odd arrangement...being a dad but not being able to "be a dad"...after all, you'll see from my latest pics that I added to the Photos section of the website (don't forget to go there and check em out) that this little baby is HAPPY! Wow, can she smile.

Meanwhile, I've been experiencing all the joys of managership with the paperwork, appraisals, budgets, interviewing new candidates, and other assundries. All the while trying to code a current website...design a new one...and get ready for Election Tuesday. It's upon me, which means a VERY long day...I might as well be ready to sleep up here...and that may happen. Vote and pray. Pray that God's Will be done and that the election process will be smooth and decisive.

As for the subject of this post...I just liked the sound of it! ;)

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

What A Year

With a new year, looking forward and backward is important. Looking ahead is important to set goals and milestones of what to accomplish in the coming year. Reflecting on the past year is important to consider areas of growth and areas needing improvement.

Looking back on 2017, it's hard to ignore that I've been in the swamp of a layoff for half of it. December marked 6 months since the last day of work at AOL and 4 months since separation from the company.

So, what are some lessons I've learned from this journey?
