Tiger Woods 09 - Walk on Water

At least Jesus gets the credit for inspiring even pros to animately (unrealistically) imitate Jesus' walk on water. ;)

Monday, August 25, 2008


Man! Yesterday was one HEAVY DUTY day! It took toll on our hearts, my wife and mine! The pressure was great, I even have a cold sore to prove it! :) The Lord placed it on our hearts through His dear, dear faithful children at Fairfax!


50+ came to say their goodbyes to us. 15+ came later during the day and gave us their love, blessings and a long good lovin' hug.. We appreciate the love they gave us.

The weight became so much HEAVIER!

Yes! I broke down in tears after opening the album given by the deaf/hearing congregation at Fairfax. Just after looking at the first page filled with scribblings and pictures of all the great and awesome years growing together at Fairfax, just after one small glimpse of the first page, I broke down into tears. And so did Michelle. We love the deaf church at Fairfax. We adore their endurance, their perseverance, and their patience (especially with me as their faithful and "bible-thumping" minister). :)

And.... Many thanks to the hearing congregation at Fairfax Church of Christ (Elders, Ministers, Ministry Leaders and congregation) for the unconditional love and support for me, my family and the deaf work! Now, we close the chapter at Fairfax and opening a new one in Overland Park, KS.

Ultra Heavy!

It's a good feeling, though! The heavy feeling was needed! It shows how much we love the deaf church that it hurts to leave. We aren't leaving with bitter feelings. We're not just merely and simply walking away. The departure path was heavy yesterday. Their hearts swelled. Their arms were wide open. Water from their eyes were like rushing waves against our very souls.

Heavy.... We wouldn't miss this for anything in the world! Because it was the love of Jesus that was..... HEAVY.

Off The Mark


It seems like it's been ages since I've actually type-written a blog.. :) My family and I are in Kansas visiting our families. It's been a good couple of days. We got a chance to get our eyes checked with my brother, Dr. Matt Lowenstein! :) He has a new practice in Olathe, KS. If you're in the area, check him out!

Last night, we visited with Michelle's brother and his family in Olathe. He cooked up some pineapple brats! Man! They were delicious! :) We all watched the Olympics together and had a great fellowship!

This morning, I got a much needed workout done at Golds not far from my in-laws home. My body was craving for sweat, pain and misery! Yes, misery! And I love it! :) LOL!

We had a great time in Sandusky, OH staying at the Kalahari Resort and went to Cedar Point! I have a video that I want to show you but will do that when I get to Manhattan visiting my family. The rides at Cedar Point was beyond imagination!! It's so much better than Hershey Park, King's Dominion and even Busch Gardens!!! Two rides were "vomit-producing" rides!! Sorry for the language! I just had to describe it! My mother-in-law saw the video and said that she would have left her stomach up there! Hillarious! :)

God is good, all the time and everywhere!

God bless you wherever you are! I'll be back to blogging again later this week with a video!
