Weekly Mind Dump 041517… Not So Much

Isn’t it funny that, when you say you’re going to do a weekly post about everything that happened during the week, you get so backed up with actual things going on that you aren’t able to keep track of everything well enough to make a concise blog post about it?

(I have no idea if that first sentence made sense, or if it is, in fact, a sentence.)

Hopefully, regularly scheduled content will reappear next weekend. There is a lot going on, and I will do my best to keep track of it all so I can share it next time.

Weekly Mind Dump 031617

It has been an eventful week. Here is this week’s #nocamowmd…

  • My daughter, Lydia, got to sing Francesca Battistelli’s Giants Fall at Blue Grass Baptist School’s talent show. She did AWESOME! So proud.
  • My church, LBT, is finishing up as sermon series called I Am a Church Member. To wit, I read an interesting supporting article recently.
  • I filled out my bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament and, as of this writing, it has been a mixed bag so far. I think there are going to be a lot of busted brackets out there before the weekend is over. #BBN
  • I got to rent and watch Doctor Strange for the second time. I saw it the first time in 3D, and I have to say I prefer it without the 3D effect. The only 3D presentation I ever saw that I felt enhanced the experience was the movie Avatar. 

Got a busy weekend ahead, so I’m posting this a little earlier than I likely will in the future. Feel free to comment or ask questions on Twitter @jonwellman #nocamowmd.

 Weekly Mind Dump 031117

I’ve been debating on how to be more consistent with content on this blog. I desperately want to keep it going, but I need a way to kickstart content creation. I’ve decided to start taking notes through the week and doing a kind of weekly mind dump every weekend (It just occurred to me that the acronym for this exercise, should I choose to use one, will be WMD.).

Since I just decided to do this, well, five minutes ago, I don’t have much to report today. Here are a few things…

A Serious Christmas Message 2016

A few years back, I shared with my readers a serious Christmas message…

Had to be done. 

This year, I have yet another serious Christmas message to share…

Until next year…

Trump Won – My Sleepless Thoughts

I woke early on Wednesday morning to find that Donald Trump has won the presidency of the United States.

America clearly voted against the Clinton legacy, and I am grateful for that. Trump was not my first choice by far, but he has promised to be a proponent for issues which I support, and I trust he will honor those commitments.

Supreme Court appointments, Obamacare repeal, and other matters of importance face our new president in short order. Praying he is up to the task and that he surrounds himself with a good team to navigate the choppy political waters in the days ahead.

As Scott Adams of Dilbert fame recently wrote, now that the election has happened, let’s all try to be useful.

Come Hear Us Sing!

The Worship Choir at Lexington Baptist Temple is presenting their Christmas Cantata on December 14th at 10:30am. If you can be there, I’d be thrilled. The choir has worked very hard, and it should be a good time of worship.

Here’s a list of the songs…
-Christmastime
-A Strange Way to Save the World
-God Is With Us
-Jesus, Joy of the Highest Heaven
-Sing the Glory
-Hark, the Herald Angels Sing

See you there!

My Coffee Cup

My cup.

I liked it when it was brand new, and the logo was pristine.

I think I like it better now that the logo is worn. Weathered. Showing its age.

Not sure how I’ll feel when the logo is gone for good. We’ll see.

Feeding the Fish

We got to visit Purina corporate offices in STL with friends Mr. Dan and Mrs. Debbie and feed fish in their coy pond. Fun!

Recording Saturday

It’s a “music stuff has taken over the kitchen table” kind of Saturday.
