Nyquil hang over

I have a hangover from my nyquil. I'm stuffed up. So, I hit the Nyquil cups hard last night and slept like a baby with a horrible after taste in my mouth. I don't know how pastor's preach every week (some of them twice a Sunday). I have been doing every Sunday since the end of November and I'm whipped. I have more low key roles over the next two weeks so that should be helpful in recovering.

I am planning on a new website that I hope to launch in the future: www.deurty.com.
I would appreciate any input on what you'd like to see on that site if anything.

Stay gold,

Get in the prayer stream.

Beginning February 4th at midnight we are going to participate in a non-stop prayer vigil until March 4th. This is not associated with one church or denomination. It is simply a time to connect with God for an hour or more and to seek Him and His movements.

If you like to pray or want to have a great spiritual experience I want to encourage you to sign up for an hour slot.

Check out the link I have on the right or check out the "Shoreline Prayer Room" at:
  • Shoreline Prays Website


  • You can learn more at the site and sign up under the calendar link. If you are in the area... have a go.

    Also - this week we are beginning our vision (who we are becoming) series. For three weeks we will be identifying how we are "Marked" and how we want to be a blessing to the world around us.

    Anyways - snow is coming and I am dreading it. I never did get into snow sports - except for watching movies. :)

    Countdown to 24!

    Thumpin and bumpin.

    Right now I am listening to the rhythmic sounds of women working out on the other side of the wall next to my desk. I hear the machines pumping. The floor is vibrating. The sound of muffled music is present. An occasional laugh is heard. I work next to a "CURVES." Here I sit adding weight and there they go, on the other side of the thinnest wall, shedding pounds in an all women work out environment. I thought about pounding on the wall sometime just to see what they would do. Then I would act like they were crazy when they come next door to find out what is wrong. But, that would be wrong. Or better yet, I could just walk in with a sweatsuit and start working out - acting like I have every right to be there. Maybe I should dress up like a woman (Tootsie) to get access. Or maybe I have taken too much time out of my day to think about these things with you. :)

    24 is back in action Sunday night and I am very excited. I haven't been this excited since holding an Advanced Dungeons and Dragons player handbook! :)

    Two Thousand and Seven



    My word for this year is: "COURAGE."

    God told Joshua: "This is my command-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9

    Courage to do the right thing.
    Courage to speak the truth.
    Courage to forgive.
    Courage to follow wherever God leads.
    Courage to put self aside.
    Courage to seek justice for the down-trodden.
    Courage to lead.
    Courage to be.

    Andy Stanley observes, "Courage is not the absence of fear. It is the willingness to strap on your fear and move ahead."

    So 2007 is the year of COURAGE.
