Joy...and happy sadness...

This week has been a wild one. But let me start with this. CONGRATS to the amazing job my Pastor did at Catalyst yesterday. He spoke to over 12,000 church staff/leaders encouraging them and giving them hope with no holes barred. I was unable to be there (that's the sad part)...but I was so proud that he was there with over 150 our staff/church members. What a defining moment in his life and the life of our church. I can say from experience, Pastor Furtick is so humble and longs that God be honored and followed through His word in everything that Elevation does as a church...and yesterday was no exception. Thank you Pastor for freely giving the way you did! Daniel and I are honored to be a part of Elevation Church!

The joy...well...the joy comes from this angel below...I would like to introduce the newest member of our family. His name is Oliver Queen....but we'll call him 'Oli'. He's a maltese...5 months old...and is as gentle as a feather. We picked him out yesterday....he'll come home with us when we arrive back from California. Watch out..this kid has TONS of pictures coming our way :)



(Oli was named after 'The Green Arrow's' True Identity, Oliver Queen, from the series Smallville and the Justice League Comics. He's so sweet! Here's his first picture of many!)
