Leckies Unplugged & Looking Ahead

One of the first stops on our mini-vacation was the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. It is definitely one of the weirdest sights that we always stop for when we're going this way. 10 cadillacs buried halfway in the ground at the angle of the great pyramids - What more can I say?

They don't look quite as lovely, today. But then again, neither do I.

Man, how did my kids get so big? The last time we were here they were all at least a foot shorter. Or maybe it just seems that way to me. Time rocks on.

Look for this image to show up in the banner on the top of this page before long.

The destination was Red River, New Mexico, and camping at the "June Bug" Campground. Here I am, as usual, defying death at every turn.

...Actually, the water was only ankle deep. I wonder if that's more of a real description of my life than I care to admit. Hmm....

This last picture pretty much says it all. The attitude, the spirit, the sense of adventure...

And it also reflects the journey my family has been on for the past two years. We have a few scratches and a loss or two, but my, how we've grown! There's a lot of trail behind us, but the path ahead is where the real action is.

And that brings me to this:

North Point Fellowship is also at a turn in the path, and we are changing our name to Compass Church for the next stage of the journey. You heard it here first. (Well, most of you, anyway)

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

A compass provides direction without details. And on an adventure you can get lost without one when the path fades into wilderness all around. I need a compass. How about you? More about this will be coming soon.

The attitude, the spirit, the sense of adventure...a wonderful family and an exciting young church with an incredible future...

God has blessed me more than I can say.
