10-4 Amigo

Since this is October 4, I fully expected today to be C-B Radio Day.  Turns out it’s just National Taco Day, which evidently is actually Aztecian food, not Mexican food.

In 1520, the conquistador Hernando Cortez wrote to King Charles V of Spain to describe his experiences in the New World. In his letter he mentioned a delicious meal the Aztec inhabitants prepared with “tlaxcalli” or “tortilla.” It is the first historical reference to tacos. – From

So, that’s that.  And we know that everyone loves tacos!

Speaking of love, I discovered this great motto yesterday.

“Love God, love people, do stuff!”- Bob Goff

I love it more than tacos!  I mean , what else is there?

And since we are talking about tacos, which makes me think about fish tacos, Baja Style! Anyway, tacos and loving and doing stuff, I can’t help but to harken back to the Feeding of the 5000 and how Jesus instructed his posse when they ask him to disperse the crowd so they would have time to get to the restaurants before the game started, before nightfall.

16 But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.” Matthew 14:16

If that isn’t an indictment towards us to act, I am not sure what is!

Tacos and Golf

Hola!  It’s National Taco Day!  I can’t believe I ate chimichangas last night!

I am not sure what that has to do with anything, but maybe you can get out and have some tacos.  I think I may make Fish Tacos tonight.

It appears it is one of those days when I don’t have much to say, but actually I do have a little bit of something for you today.

A few years ago I swore off golf, because I stink.  I don’t mean I am just a poor player, I mean I stink.  I usually play the wrong fairway – meaning that is we are traveling down the fairway on the left, my ball is over on the right fairway that should be played the other direction!

Anyway, today I am heading out to play in a golf tournament.  Everytime I think about it I start laughing out loud – literally.  Yes, literally, I laugh, not a figurative deep inside chuckle.  So, why am I doing this?  Well, this is part of my approach at two things – taking risks and being more intentional around relationships with people.

I am not playing golf today to play golf – I really don’t care how I do – good bad or ugly.  But I am concerned about developing better relationships with the guys I am playing with.  It seems to me that is really what matters in the end anyway!  And let me tell you this is a huge challenge and risk for me, because I would much rather sit in my office and type on my computer.

So today as I head into the basement and brush the spider webs off my borrowed clubs, let me remind you to pay attention to those around you and intentionally get involved in their lives.

 19So, then, the things of peace may we pursue, and the things of building up one another; Romans 14:19Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)
