Great Day!

As you are reading this, I pray that your day has been a great one. I am 31 days out to being 40 and can honestly say that I have had some great days in my life. I am blessed to be teaching at Greater Atlanta Christian school. I have the opportunity to do a lot of good. I am thankful for those opportunities. I am trying here lately to have great days. Everyday I am alive and can be good to those around me is a great day. Every time I hear of someone dying, I am touched. It really doesn't matter if I know them or not. I feel for those who are grieving their lost. I want to comfort them, and try to just be there for them. I can't do that with everyone. I can lift up prayers and try to encourage.

What is keeping you from having a great day? Don't let anyone steal your Joy. We do have a savior who died for you and want you to bring as much glory to him as possible. He don't mind if you have a little fun while doing it. I'm praying for you today to have a great day!

What is next?

I have been wondering a lot lately, what will be the next step for Terry Davis. I have a had a very good life. I have been to places and met some wonderful people over my lifespan. The big question for me is "What is next?". Many of you know that I lost my mom last Easter. Thanksgiving dinner is one of my family's highlight of the year. My mom is generally in a great mood. I found myself that day a little empty. I missed her, and her wonderful cooking. No one can cook like momma. I began to think about all the wonderful food that she would prepare every year. I love my family. We are a different family. We do have a great time when we get together. So, now back to my original question "what is next?". Answer: I don't know. There are things that I love right now and things that I don't. Some I can control, and others I can not control. I will begin to work on the things I can control. Be in prayer, 2011 is gonna be a great year. I just don't know what it will look like for me. Be in prayer!

Another topic, I will be turning 40 in January. I am beginning to work on my bucket list. This coming Monday, It will be 40 days until my birthday. I plan on adding 1 thing to my list each day until I turn 40. Not sure if I can actually come up with 40 things. I will. I will be posting daily beginning Monday. So, stay in touch.

9-11 and other stuff

As I reflect on 9-11, I can't help but to praise God for all the things he has done that another event such as this has not happen on this large of a scale. God to me is like a parent who watches their kid continue to make bad choices. We continue to sometimes take for granted our safety, good health, and blessings that we have.

I remember many thing about 9-11, when I was in full time ministry. I remember a special prayer service put on my church after being asked by the city. I remember leading worship for Dallas Christian chapel that morning. That morning while still being in bed, turning on the TV witnessed the second plane crashing into the World trade center. I remember how many people came together after this event including congress. We have come a long way since then. We as a country may be more divided today than we have ever been. I remember going to the grocery store and people being nicer to each other.

I wished that I could come up with some magic formula to get us to act right and do the right thing as a church, country, and community. It starts with us. I write this and I don't really have a great relationship lately with my own physically family right now. If we can't do it with blood relatives, how can we do it with strangers or other friends. I am tired of the fighting and bickering going on in politics, churches and other other organizations. Let's get together, and let's stop the fighting!

Changing subjects a little, I am at a lost thinking about baby hailey today. I just read her mother's blog highlighting this week and what is going on today. This is a young family. You can read more about them by clicking here. Please pray for them and especially baby hailey. I don't know why this 2 year old has to go thru all of what she has so far, but I am moved by the goals the family has and is doing to prolong baby hailey's life. I am at a lost of how to respond. I can not imagine going thru what they have and what they are dealing with each day. Just join me in prayer, and thank God for blessing you today for the very life you get to enjoy.

Changing subjects again, Relationships are hard. I know I am not that good at them. I love people and meeting new ones. I like keeping some of the old ones I have met over the years. As I have gotten older and set in my ways, I am not sure these days if there is any one out there that I would enjoy spending the rest of my life with as a spouse. I have said for years I would love to be married. I am not sure I want more drama in my life at least not today. Keep me in prayer as I continue to evaluate the good and the bad that is happening with me. I love the freedoms that I have and the blessings that I can shower on many people. Just pray for me!

Let me thank you for reading. I know you might not come often, but you are here today. Be a blessing to someone!
