Oh please no!

Monday morning I was at the gym doing my Monday Workout Routine. I like to start the week off at the gym and then go straight into work. But I had a little accident that could have proved embarrassing...I almost knock myself out. I know what everyone is thinking when I say this, "What, did you drop weights on you head or something?"

I'm looking forward to some new insight and views.

Then Sunday night came, we had a lot of set up because we were doing the worship track of Jesus, going through a few experiential stations to remind us why Jesus came to earth.
