BG vs Elk Grove - The ending of Game 1

I played basketball last night for the 1st time in about a year. I broke my ankle last July so that was part of the reason for the lay-off. The other reasons...plantar in the other foot, i'm old, not enough time to play...i'm old. Anyway, it went pretty good I guess, I got out of bed this morning without pain and I feel pretty good. Believe it or not my ankle is still swelled after 7 months...Lewis Davis (broke his ankle back in the day) said his stayed swelled for a year...and he was in his twenties. So, I just decided to tape it and go. Since bball was on my mind and a buddy sent me this video yesterday I thought you might enjoy. Have a good Wednesday!

Husband or Boyfriend of the Year!

Yesterday, on the way home from church we stopped to get some gas in the Escape. Now, being the man of the house I was the one pumping the gas. I always do this and it just seems right. This is not some act of kindness to my wife...I always pump the gas...and it was cold outside. As many of you Crossroadians know, we've been doing the 21 challenge for our spouse. 1 act of kindness to our spouse for the next 21 days in hopes of creating a habit of love in our relationship. Well, when Marinda and I saw this we had to take a picture. Is it a married couple or a dating couple? Could it be brother and sister?...I doubt it. Whatever type of relationship it is...this dude is a major loser. He's sittin' in the heat while the girl is in the cold weather working on the tire. She checked the tire with a gauge and then put air in the tire...and the man's man was staying! People amaze me!

Movie Night at Crossroads

We will be having a movie night this Friday (13th) at the church. It all starts at 7:00. We will have snacks, intermission & prizes. We are not having our annual 'Valentine's Day Dinner' this year. We will be watching Fireproof together on Friday so you can have Valentine's Day to celebrate with your spouse. Shoot me an email if you're coming so we can have an idea of how many will be in attendance. Thanks!

Excuse #1: "I'm broke!"
Solution--It's all free!

Excuse #2: "I don't have anyone to watch my children."
Solution--Childcare is available.

Excuse #3: "I've already seen the movie."
Solution--It's worth a second look and it's more fun to watch it with other people.

No more excuses...just show up.
