I remember my dad watching M*A*S*H when I was too young to appreciate it. I was annoyed that I couldn’t do what I wanted on this ‘neat’ thing called a TV. Dad almost made me watch that show with him. I say ‘made’ because I was hooked on TV and M*A*SH wasn’t all that bad….

So today Sara (9 years old) actually asked if I wanted to watch M*A*S*H with her. It was the end of the day and I was tired. But I know that Sara’s primary love language is quality time, so all I have to do is say ok in this situation. But then there was a moment in the show that Sara repeated one of Hawkeye’s lines, figured it out, and laughed with a genuine smile of haha on her face.

Here is a link to a cool M*A*S*H fact. Check it out.

Dear God, though M*A*S*H isn’t in complete accord with Biblical teaching, thank you for keeping it clean enough that I can enjoy this show with both my father, AND my children.

We had another successful Vacation Bible School week at First Baptist Church of Coldwater. Over 100 kids from infants to middle school age were in attendance each day. Over 60 volunteers put in time, too. It was an excellent week! Check out this video.

With an opening in our Youth Department at the church, Tasha, Susie, and myself were asked to take a show-must-go-on attitude towards a week long youth trip planned for the Alive Music Festival. I was told I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and that was correct! But the kids and leaders all had a good time listening to music, growing in our faith, getting to know each other better, and playing in the mud – yes, M-U-D. Check out this video.

It was time again for the school year-end pilgrimage to Cedar Point. I didn’t go to Cedar Point for about 10 years, and now I’ve gone every year for the last 5. It is good to take a day, hang out with the church youth, and get thrown around like a rag-doll at heights over 400 feet and speeds around 120m.p.h. I just realized how insane that sounded. And I can’t wait for next year!

Recently I went for a walk with my beautiful daughter and her friend at River Bend Park in Girard. It was so peaceful, tranquil, and innocent. I’m going to do a little Facebook fun to see if we can go back to what it was for a brief time in 1992 when the juniors become seniors! The statute of limitations has surely run out….
