Like I said before, I work as a worship pastor for Lifechurch.tv. Our senior pastor, Craig Groeschel, has a blog called Swerve. He and Bobby Gruenewald are regular bloggers and have some really great insights into leadership and technology.
(For some reason the word "technology" is now humorous to me. Ever since hearing Kip sing, "Cause I love technology...but not as much as you, you see, but I still love technology...always and forever.")
ANYway, Craig is taking a break from blogging for a few days and has used a blog that I wrote that talks about worship and being sensitive to non-believers that are in our worship experience. Check it out here. Link
Be sure to come back and tell me what you think...or post there!

So, the little guy has seemed to change right before our eyes this week. He's begun making sequential "ooh, ooh, ooh" sounds. He reaches for his little furry thingys on the handle of his carrier, he even started kicking in the pool when we pulled him along. Lots of cool stuff. Being a dad has enamored me with my kiddo!
We embark on a 14-16 hour trek tomorrow morning that will take us through 4 states (we're avoiding Louisiana.) We shall partake of McDonald's dollar menu and stretch at many a truck stop. I hope we make it back in once piece!

Sorry, the title was misleading. You probably thought that I was going to bash Louisiana again huh? No, we're firmly planted in Alabama! Yesterday was pretty awesome. Ezra had several firsts. He put his feet in the sand....actually got in the ocean (not on his own...but with mom and dad's help.) He also went swimming for the first time. He did awesome! No crying, no fussing. He did get to take a nap under the umbrella on a towel...salt air breeze, waves crashing...I think it's a good start for a kiddo from Oklahoma! We had a good time at a cool restaurant in Gulf Shores. Lulu's is a loud environment! It was last year's watch party for the Soul Patrol Idol winner Taylor Hicks. Lulu is Jimmy Buffett's sister. (wiki) If you don't know who Buffett is, then I feel sad for you.
Today was less eventful. We got some decorations for his room from Souvenier City, which was full of souveniers...go figure. We tried to go on a beach walk but it rained. Instead we went to the indoor pool...more good times! Who knows what will be in store for the Henslee family tomorrow?
I'm posting a video and some pics of the last couple days...

Just a quick little video for you. My son Ezra was about 6wks old when we were uploading a ton of videos to YouTube. I get to feed him usually once a day. This is the cutest kid I've ever seen.....didn't know I could feel like this toward something that poops and yaks on me.

This is a bit of a follow up of my last post...well not really but it started in the middle of "the band" phase. Rachel was working her business from home *insert shameless plug *(Premier Designs Jewelry) while I was touring around the South in the band formerly known as Maple Street.

Once upon a time, I was in a band. Actually I have been in a few bands, but the one which I am centering the blog upon is MAPLE STREET. I was in this band for about 2 years while Rachel and I lived in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I met the band through our church we were attending. UBC was the place to be, specifically the "college hour." Maple Street was the worship band and I met Bruce Clinton, led worship in his absence one day...next thing I know, he asked me to help out during a summer for a camp they were leading!
