We have been in Lubbock in the great south plains of Texas. It's fall here which means the weather is beautiful and the sky is blue.
Jenny and I had the enormous pleasure of attending a Texas Tech football game. What a joy! We threw 4 interceptions, one of them ran back for a touchdown, and so lost to those pesky Buffaloes of Colorado, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. What a great sport, college football. I must admit it is one thing I enjoy more and more as I get older.
Jenny's dad had a pain pump put in and the Lord brought him through the surgery Friday. Hopefully this will lower his constant pain to a more managable level. Some days it seems he is being tortured by his own body, pressed down by the full weight being a human in a fallen world. But not all days are bad and I have been able to hang out with him a good bit. He is proof that the name-it-claim-it crowd is just plain wrong.
We begin our orientation with CAM on Sunday. Looking forward to that. It will be a busy 2 weeks. Then Thanksgiving. We are just really, really, really (is 4 too many?) enjoying time with our family. God has blessed us with wonderful everyone. And if you're in the DFW area, we'd love to see you too. Just give us a holler. If you don't know what that means, well, you have some learnin' to do.
