Should I add the federal government to the cc: list on all my e-mails?
Can I hear God's voice here in Lansing, Michigan on a Thursday morning?

Getting reacquainted with Mac Powell and Third Day on a Wednesday morning in mid-Michigan

My son Justin and I were sitting in our rented car parked at the Thomas Mack Center at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas eating lunch.  On the way to the car, he bought a Third Day CD which we then listened to as we ate a sandwich with a view of the Luxor Hotel in front of us.

That's where I heard Mac Powell sing two songs that stuck with the recesses of my memory, "Cry out to Jesus" and "The Creed."  

In an email that our church--Ada Bible Church-- sent out this morning as part of their Beyond the Weekend effort, pointed to the Cry Out to Jesus song.  I clicked on the link.  

 I know that parts of daily life can quickly turn to mush and there seems to be no place to go.  This morning's email said: 

Our "cross" may involve the burden of rejection, temptation, loss, and possibly even death. Nevertheless, we can find inspiration and strength as we "fix our eyes on Jesus" (v. 2)--remembering his suffering, his faithfulness, and his promise to be with us.
