You Sicko!

For three weeks I've had a cornucopia of nasty viruses. First, the Flu..then...well...diarrhea...sorry. Then, LinkUvulitis for several days. Lost my voice...then I picked up a cold. Sinus issues. Okay, normally I don't get sick...but it's all happening at once.

So, Rachel got a Neti Pot to treat her sinus issues. I decided to try it. Here's the video...sorry for the faint of heart.

The Story of Levi

November 10, 2008

7:30pm - Rachel runs to Subway while I'm giving Ezra a bath and getting him ready for bed.

8:00pm - Rachel's contractions are about 15 mins apart, we start watching Heroes.

8:30pm - Rachel's contractions go to 5 mins apart for about an hour...PAIN ONSET!!!

9:30pm - Car is loaded and house is ready but Rach is in too much pain to move...

9:40pm - Helping Rachel to car...car is running in the street, Rachel screaming, I'm waiting on friend to arrive to stay with sleeping toddler in the house....TENSE!!!!

9:45pm - Friend arrives, and we flee towards the hospital...running red lights, passing cars while honking and flying down the road!

9:50pm - Arrive at hospital, frantically try to convince ER staff that baby is IMMINENT!!

9:53pm - Rachel is lifted out of car, Levi's head is almost out!

9:55pm - Arrive in hospital room, nurses everywhere, no Dr. in sight! PUSH RACH PUSH!!!

10:01pm - Levi Olen Henslee arrives!

16 minutes after we left our house Levi was born! Rach's water broke in the car and she was in INTENSE PAIN! I was freaking out! Had we not lived so close to the hospital, yours truly would have delivered his second child in the car on the side of the road! God is Good!

Thank you friends and family who have given encouragment and love. We're excited about this little guy....he was ready to come OUT!!!

Henslee Halloween '08

Here are a few shots of Ezra on Halloween this year. In case you can't tell, he's a monkey.

I Love What I Do...Do You?

Today the band met for our LifeGroup time in the Green Room. One of the things that we discussed was the fact that we get to be an active part of what God does each and every week at the Tulsa campus of LifeChurch.tv. This week, 54 people indicated that they were accepting Jesus into their hearts, forever to be changed!

I love being a part of life change. I love it when it's the first eternal step, and when it's just one more step in the salvation process (sanctification.)

So, to have my full-time job be at a place where I love what I do and people get radically changed forever is pretty freakin awesome!

What about you? How is God using you in your job/ministry?
