No News Today

I heard from the doctor's office around 2p today that they were not going to have the results from Eva's UA until tomorrow or Wednesday! So, we don't know anything. Please continue to pray for her.

Ok, that said, here's a story for ya. This will serve as my official "confession" for the week because I don't believe that I can top it. Well, then again, it is me!

On Friday, my boss asked me to prepare an invocation for a meeting that I attended today. This is a meeting of basically the planning council for the conference we are hosting in Dallas next April. In attendance were others in my position to CEO's from Y's across the country.

Anyway, I thought this was a good way to keep my mind off Eva this weekend and I thought and thought about what to say this morning bright and early.

I found this poem that was basically a rip off of If You Give a Pig a Party called If You Give a Mom a Muffin. The story talks about how a mom just wants to have a coffee and muffin and of course gets distracted from the bigger picture by all the wonderful things her children do to her like dump out her purse, get a smelly diaper, etc etc. As I stood in front of everyone, I tied it into the conference and how we need to keep our eye on the big picture and what we learn at the conference helps to guide us when we lose our way blah blah blah.

Well, it was very well recieved. People laughed when they should and overall I had been feeling very confident in my little presentation.

That is, of course, until I sat down and realized that my fly was open the whole time.

That is sooooooooooooo something that would happen to me.
Or else, I would have something big and green in my teeth.
I'm sure it was great.

That sounds like something that would happen to me.

Keeping your family in our prayers.

Don't sweat it. I am sure that everyone was hanging on your words...they were not distracted by your open fly. Such a great story...isn't that always the way. How many things like that have happened to me...countless!

Oh my! That is funny. I have these slacks I do that with...there are two buttons and a zipper, and I think I am so used to 1-2 steps that I miss 1-2-3!

(I doubt they noticed.)

I'm thinking great thoughts for you all and that sweet girl.
