Thursday Night Mini Thoughts

– If it’s Thursday night then it must be time for some mini thoughts o’ mine.
– It’s the 14TH edition of these ‘Thursday Night Mini Thoughts’.
– It’s the sleeper smash hit series of the season for this blog !
– Last night I spent nearly 3 hours with some good friends at the White Lion Cafe.
– They officially close ‘when the fat lady sings’.
– She sang last night, and we shut the joint down just before 10 PM.
– As promised I ate ENORMOUS quantities of food.
– I stopped eating at around 9:30 PM.
– That was over 19 hours ago, and I haven’t eaten a morsel ever since then.
– I may grab a snack after I post these Mini Thoughts.
– I’m not really hungry though.
– I also ate an ENORMOUS Lunch at Sonny’s BBQ 8 hours prior to Dinner.
– I may have consumed nearly 10,000 calories yesterday.
– Some of my friends didn’t like their food at the White Lion Cafe.
– Greg eats just like me – EVERYTHING on his plate !
– It just takes him a little longer to do so.
– My food was absolutely scrumptious from start to finish.
– Of course this is coming from a dude who cooks absolutely nothing at home.
– I only eat real food in restaurants and in other peoples’ homes.
– I was in meetings pretty much all day today at work.
– They were very productive.
– Over the past 21 months I’ve enjoyed a purpose-driven career.
– It just took over 22 years to get to that point in my career.
– Next year I celebrate my 25TH anniversary working with the USAF.
– The first 22 years were pretty much forgettable.
– At least I wish to forget most of that time.
– My little brother turns 34-years-old this Sunday.
– I remember when he was born.
– I also remember all of the fun times that we shared together as kids.
– My brother is my favourite person in the entire world.
– I’ll see him LIVE and in person next Thursday night.
– That’s because I’ll be visiting North Texas next weekend.
– We’ll be celebrating his birthday on the first night.
– And his 2ND anniversary with his wife on the second night.
– And my birthday on the third night.
– And Mother’s Day on the fourth night.
– That means that there will be more MASSIVE meals in my future !
– I am so looking forward to that !

“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.”

Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts

It’s the longest-running episodic weekly series in the entire history of this blog:

1.  Friends – I don’t want the deadly swine flu. I don’t even want the ‘at-home-in-bed-sick’ swine flu. I’m just putting that out there for everyone. Please wash your hands thoroughly after you touch things. This personal health and hygiene message was provided to you as a public service by the ‘Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts’. The More You Know.

2.  An extended coworker recently stated that I remind him of Ernie Douglas from “My Three Sons“. Well that’s certainly a nice obscure reference from some 45 years ago !  The funniest thing about it is the fact that it was one of my favourite TV shows to watch as a kid of the 1970s.

3.  This season’s cycle of “The Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC-TV has been one of the most interesting, exciting, intriguing, suspenseful, and downright shocking seasons of any prime time reality show in television history. This has been one season where I refuse to record it for later viewing. I must watch it LIVE, and I must not be interrupted for anything whatsoever while it is on !

4.  I do not use Twitter, I do not know how to use Twitter, and I do not wish to learn how to use Twitter. This WordPress blog right here is as technologically-enhanced as I plan to get for the unforseeable future. If you wish to know what I’m doin’ or what’s goin’ on in my Life then feel free to read all about it right here. Although I post a lot of fun things on here during the week (filler material) this blog is also a ministry for me. It is how I disciple to the rest of the world. If you’re interested then stay tuned to what I have to share with you. If you’re not interested then check out other blogs that are out there on the interwebs.

5.  I’m hangin’ out with some good friends o’ mine at Homestead‘s White Lion Cafe tomorrow night. This just in. I love to eat ENORMOUS quantities of food !

Monday Night Countdown

This week on the hit series ‘Monday Night Countdown’ I present to you my own personal answers to 5 random questions that are frequently addressed on various Myspaces, Facebooks, and blogs all over the interwebs. Enjoy.

1.  Do you like to use post-it notes ?
YES – I love them. They are mandatory accessories on my desk at home and on my desk at work. I even use them in my car. They are one of the greatest human inventions during the course of my lifetime.

2.  Do you always smile for pictures ?
YES – And I’m one of the few people that I know that actually likes to get his picture taken. You guys and gals can document my Life via pictures. I’ll put it all in writing via this blog.

3.  What is your biggest pet peeve ?
Bad drivers. They surround me. They annoy me more than anything else.

4.  Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing ?
All the time !

5.  Were you ever a Boy Scout ?
YES – 1975 to 1980. Good Times !

Sunday Night Funnies

A friend sent this to me via E-Mail:


Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

– Sometimes there are up to 9 Johnsons at Life Pointe Church.
– This morning I could only find one – Anne J.
– Anne J. was armed with several cans of Lysol – one for each hand at a time.
– She was killing movie theatre viruses, germs, mold, and mildew.
– She was eliminating odors on contact.
– My favourite couple – Jonathan & Lillian – arrived a good 2½ hours early.
– They were filling in for Manny and his crew.
– Jonathan & Lillian are typically the best-dressed couple at LPC.
Mark S. hosted during the first service this morning.
Jesse S. led this week’s teaching.
– It was one of the most powerful and inspirational messages in awhile.
– Jesse led a straight-talk conversation, as he shared his Life with us.
– Jesse is one of the most ‘real’ dudes I know on this journey.
– I’m glad that Jesse is an important part of my Life.
– I’m walking with Jesse as we follow God.
– 1 Peter is one of my favourite books of the New Testament.
– 1 Peter 1:23 sums it all up for me:

For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new Life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.

– And then there’s this gem from 1 Peter 2:9:

As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.

– My cornerstone date of rebirthing – August 2006.
– That’s when God rescued me from the darkness and led me into His daylight.
– This journey is so not about us.
– It’s all about Jesus Christ.
– We should inspire the world around us with the Life that we live.
– The world should be able to easily see God’s glory shining through us.
– Shine with me.
