1). Song of the Day: Write this Down - ♫ Alarm the Alarm ♫
2). Blog Entry: Life Lessons
- Better safe than sorry! This past weekend, we held our annual Fun Arts Festivals for Kids. We had two locations planned; McCook Assembly of God for those in the West, and Lincoln Christ's Place for those in the East. Friday night, more snow came into the eastern part of the state, and I received calls asking if we were going to continue as scheduled for our Fun Arts in Lincoln. We thought that an inch or two wouldn't be too bad, so we forged ahead.
- Saturday morning, a few parents called their Fun Arts Children's Pastor concerned about the weather. They had seen a rough forcast of road conditions on I-80 between Grand Island and Lincoln. A few of our groups called to tell me that wouldn't make it. We talked with our host pastor and we decided to postpone the event in Lincoln until a later date. I still went to McCook and had a great time with our Western groups.
- After reassessing the situation, I'm convinced we made the right call. Sure - some groups could have made it without any problem, but what if they didn't? Is it really better to have it anyway, at the risk of people's lives? By delaying it, I will be able to be involved in that event on the makeup date, and more groups and students may decide to come out at a later time. In situations like these, we might want to just forge ahead as tough Nebraska people, unafraid of snow, but most of the time our motto should be 'Better safe than sorry' (especially with children).

6). Miscellaneous: Today is National Tooth Fairy Day, so guard your teeth. It is also Rex Adam's Birthday (pastor in Lexington) a distinction he shares with Harvard President Benjamin Wadsworth from 1670. Finally, it is the anniversary of the day that the first Gulf War ended in 1991.
