Your TV drama show comments were awesome. Thanks for commenting. Lots of you are watching Lost, 24, and House, to name a few. Hats off to those of you who actually admitted that Christy was one of your favorite dramas of all time. That took some guts. I've never even laid my eyes on one episode of that show. I wasn't even sure if it was ever on actual TV.
It's an AMAZING day here in Franklin, TN. It's currently 52 degrees. I'm about to have my quiet time on the back porch with a hoodie on. More happiness than I can stand.
I have a busy weekend ahead. I am at the International Mission Board on Thursday night and Friday morning in Richmond, VA. Then I'm heading to Clearwater for a Saturday worship conference and Sunday night concert at Calvary Baptist. I'm looking forward to both of those places.
I would be grateful for your prayers for my vocal and physical strength. I've been having some vocal issues lately, so yesterday I went to the Vanderbilt Voice Center to get checked out. Hallelujah, my vocals cords look healthy and are working well. My troubles are not fatigue (which is a huge THANK YOU, LORD)...just allergies. So this week I am starting to knock those bad boys down off their allergy high horse with all manner of vitamins and healthy blah blah blah and more water than I ever care to drink.
I must admit that I went to the doctor because I was really alarmed. I have been having this very painful pain (can you say that?) in one spot of my neck / throat. It is sore to the touch and certainly painful when I sing. I didn't know what it could be, or if it was tied to my vocal fatigue in any way. I had a few vain imaginings of worst-case scenarios, so that's why I finally went to the doctor. It turns out that I have a pulled or stressed muscle in my neck. Not tied to my voice at all. Woo hoo! A big relief and a huge answer to prayer. It will get better with time.
So in summary, my voice still does need prayer. But it's not damaged or unhealthy in any way. Just trying to work in the midst of a sea of allergies. Barley Green, here I come.
I was going to ask you to pray for the trouble I've been having with my knees. But I can't bring myself to talk about it on the heels of a post where I said the last drama I watched on TV was Dallas in 1983. What am I, 85? Don't answer that.
I gotta go. The Price Is Right will be on in an hour. And then I have to work on my post about Luby's and Matlock. Oh, and then there's lunch at 10:30.
