Hanging out with an old friend

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Later today I'm heading out on about 150 mile drive to hang out with an old friend who is pastoring a church. He's been there just a few years and is already beginning to see this established church began to take a more active role in their community. It should be a great time with his leaders tonight. Of course, I am not looking forward to the 2 and a half hour drive home tonight.

Hope you have an amazing Thursday!

It's not the years, it's the mileage..

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

After a relaxing day at our company picnic, I made the decision to join some guys at one of our local churches for some pickup basketball. It was a fun night, but I am coming to the realization that I really shouldn't be trying to keep up with guys who are at least 20 years my junior. I believe that I am in good shape for a 45 year old. However, there's a reason why guys my age do not play in the nba. After playing for about almost two hours last night, I am feeling it in my joints today. The bad thing was that it forced me to shorten up my run this morning.

My wife is great to lovingly remind me that I am not 25 years old anymore. Now it looks like my body has decided to chime in with her wisdom.

Does anyone know a group of guys in central Missouri that like to get together and play some hoops and are a little more experienced (i.e. more my own age), yet still enjoy playing Naismith's timeless game?

    You're a good man, Coop!
I pray God give you plenty of years and plenty of stamina :)
Glad you weren't offended

    Moses was obviously a healthier man than me...just trying to age gracefully.

    Hope you find a group to play with that's more age-appropriate (lol).
This is how I think....if Moses can climb a mountain and be "commanded" to die at 120 - why can't I have that kind of stamina as I age? You're still a young pup.

A Day at the Park

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Our company is giving us a day at a local park. We will have a cookout, and play some of the usual group games and simply spend some time together. Our families are invited. It's just a nice relaxing way to spend the day. Of course, the weather is even cooperating with us as well, since it's going to be in the low 80's this afternoon with lots of sunshine.

Hope your Tuesday goes better than you'd hoped.

    I look for every day to be better, even in the growing amount of bad news.

All day meeting

Monday, May 03, 2010

Seems like my life is full of these. Off to another all day meeting. I hope this one is productive and doesn't feel like it lasts for a week.

Have a great Monday! (Is that an oxymoron?)

    I have one of those on Jail/Prison ministry later in the week, but I'm not running it. I am really looking forward to it.

Hope it goes well today and you get some time to enjoy your week!

    How do you run in an all day meeting?! I can just picture you sitting in your chair running in place under the desk =)
