BUT of course (i promise you its like clockwork) something had to happen.
So let me start this post with a reference to yesterday afternoon.
4:00PM - 3 Mile Run, sweat like i was in an oven.
6:00PM - Dance Practice, we practice LIFTS with all the girls and new choreography.
9:00PM - MORE dance practice for a completely separate thing.
11:30PM - Leave studio to head home (30 minute drive)
12:20AM - ... i think I'm falling asleep, i should be ... I've been going and going for 19hrs
*SLEEPING - DREAMING*
4:45AM - SNOOZE
4:50AM - SNOOZE
5:30AM - AHH!! WHAT HAPPENED! WHY AM I LATE!!
haha yeah ... i snoozed the alarm once, then canceled it ... i was all alone ... i needed to be at the Station at 5:20AM ..... needless to say i packed up the wife, got dressed (btw never have i gotten dressed so quickly in my life, ...realizing now that i forgot my belt, I'm wearing 2 different flip flops and had my shirt inside out until i realized it at the 7:00AM hour ... yeah ... I'm a winner!) anyway ... OFF WE WERE heading to work. The drive consisted of me apologizing to my lovely wife on why i woke up so late and frantic and that she had to *GULP* possibly sleep at the Station .... well ..... she didn't mind (thanx God) anyway Elisha found herself nice spot in the studio to pull together 2 chairs and finish up her beauty rest, while i push and produce the Summer Cruise.
The show went on without a hitch (i seem to say that even if there were glitches) ... i didn't start sweating until the 7:20AM break where Carmen preference the break before going on saying "Krispy, how ya doing? Ya know, uh , Pinky (the pink flamingo everyone and their mother have been trying to find to win NOJ tix and a bunch of Summer Cruise gear) IS IN YOUR OFFICE!!" ... first reaction was "must have misheard ... haven't had my coffee yet. Sure enough ... sitting at the window of my office was none other than the plastic perky Pinky Cortez Tuscadeo, perched ever so neatly facing out the window .... this isn't good .... i have a sleeping wife in the studio, i look like I've been out all night doing God knows what (with miss matched flip flops) and now I'm going to have a herd of loyal JOY FM listeners "Storming the Gates" to nab the ever precious pink flamingo.
8 Oh Clock rolls around and sure enough, there's a commotion outside. 2 couples (4 people) and a pair of friends ... oh and a young, new mother carrying her child (7 people ... well ... 8 if you count the gorgeous baby) were surrounding the Station ... 4 on the South side, 2 on the West, and the young mother standing semi-wide eyed and scared at the front door. My wife being the baby lover she is, lets her in and mingles with the beautiful pair. All of a sudden, like a thunderous roar coming down the hall ..... the pair of friends, rumbled through the offices, down the hall, shouting as if they were Viking soldiers to my office, where not only my wife and the new mother were but also a newly startled and crying baby. The pair captured their prize with a shout of "We are the Champions" and as fast and loud as they came in ... they were gone. I felt as if i wanted to be the valiant night that mounted on horse back to rescue the prize from the Viking soldiers and place it into the delicate hands of the young mother but ... AHH :30 seconds until break!!! .. "HEY DAVE, DAVE!!" .. I frantically shrieked "WHA?" ... "Dude seriously the most hilarious thing just happened ... it was like Braveheart only with Vikings and not all that chivalry stuff ... ya know what it wasn't like Braveheart it was more like .... CLOVERFIELD ... OH AH :10 SECONDS ... LIVE IN 5 ...4...3...2 ..."
OK so i might be a little dramatic in the telling of the story but still ... it was like a mixture of Independance Day, an Indiana Jones movie and maybe some Transformers all played by Viking soldiers ... who were female (did i say that yet .... sorry)
ANYWAY!! Needless to say i think we are on our way to compensating the young mother!!

On another Note, flipping thought Galatians this morning ... 5 to be exact. Came across one of the most quote scriptures in Modern Christian society - Galatians 5:1 .. it is for freedom that Christ set us free" ... awesome reassurance ... then read down past to 5:16-18 "So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law" ... simply said (and not to complicate things, we seem to do that alot with scripture that's not meant to be complicating) Paul says "Live by the Spirit*Rom.8:9" ... the Spirit is the "Spirit of Christ" the demeanor, countenance and love of Christ. "and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature" ... simply put - live as a servant of Christ, love all that He loved, give yourself to the least of these .... and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. That;s not hard at all, is it ... no need to confuse yourself with how to "live by the Spirit" .. "Is that according to 1 Corinthians 14?" ...no its not ... its according to Christ ... and his example to LIVE and really LIVE .... try it ... its fun.
until next time
