I guess if Honolulu was 81% I'd move there, but since it's a tie with Portland, I might as well stay. Sorry babe...I know you love Hawaii.

Wow! I spent yesterday evening in the lobby of my college dorm room. One of my buddies is an Resident Director at Corban College (the college formerly know as Western Baptist). He invited me to lead worship for a guys dorm meeting. First of all...did we always have them at 10pm? I'm really tired today. Sheesh, I'm getting old. I even said to one of the guys..."Nic and I played together back in the day." Then I realized how lame that was. Anyway....

It was great to be back on Campus. It brought back many good memories. My favorite recollection was Brad and I zooming down the halls on our in-line skates, hurdling couches and slamming into concrete pillars in the middle of the night.

I'd forgotten how much fun it was to worship with college students. Something about them allows for free, unashamed worship. I think the Church could learn a lot from them. Why are we so worried about human perception...shouldn't we take every opportunity to praise God without reservation? David got so crazy into it that he took off all his clothes and danced around neked because he was so passionate about praise. No crazy naked guys last night, but it was refreshing to see guys singing at the top of there lungs, jumping up and down and waving their hands in the air. I had a blast...I felt like I could worship freely and not worry about offending anyone. The best thing was...I'm sure that the joyful noise that filled the PVG halls last night was a pleasing sound to His ear.

Aren't we a bunch of slackers. Not too many new blog entries out there! Well I have an excuse - I've been focused (pun intended) on my new photography hobby. It's a little easier to upload pics to Flickr, so I've put a few there instead of here...forgive me!

Feel free to check them out. WARNING - 99% of them are of may be overwhelmed by cuteness.
