Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, doing, listening to, watching or pondering.
Join Me – October 26 & 27 as I will be offering my Creating Connection Marriage Intensive Retreat at the Homewood Suites by Hilton Airport, Lafayette, LA. Early registration is $325/couple. Register by October 12. We also have rooms set aside for those of you coming in from out of town.
What I’m reading – Walking with God is a good reflection about the connection between mind, body and spirit. I enjoyed this article by Dr. Colleen Arnold
What I’m listening to – Jane and I enjoyed a wonderful evening with dear friends on Saturday night. They introduced me to the music of Andrew Bird. Andrew is from Lake Forest, IL and as a fellow Chicagoland suburb native, I really enjoy his song Pulaski at Night. The album “I Want to See Pulaski at Night” is very good. I have been listening to his music most of Sunday and into the early part of the week. He is an American violinist who performs what I call ‘modern folk’. Great stuff!
What I grilled last weekend – The Big Green Egg is one of my backyard self-therapeutic weekend endeavors. I am learning to be very good on the BGE by watching “How to BBQ Right.com”, hosted by Malcom Reed. This weekend I used his Grilled Pork Steak recipe. It was …. Delicious!
Quote I’m pondering – “For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord. Plans for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future full of hope. When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your hear, you will find me with you, says the Lord, and I will change your lot;” (Jeremiah 29:11-12a)
Listen in – On Thursday nights from 8-9 PM (cst) I host the program, ‘Brokenhearted’ on Radio Maria.us. You can stream it live if you can’t get it over the airwaves. You can also go to Radio Maria and listen to previously recorded broadcasts of the program.
