    A Special Happy Mother’s Day to my wife, Crystal, and to my mother, Ellen.

    We had a great day of worship at the Shiloh Church today.

    Grateful for all of our guests today. I even got to meet BrothaRollins’ parents. Way cool.

    Praise God for the five persons who were baptized today.

    Our Genesis Choir (children) sang today.

    I preached “God’s Graffiti” from Daniel 5, continuing my series through Daniel.

    I outlined the chapter in four movements:

    1.  The Foolish Celebration (Belshazzar)
    2. The Party Crasher (God)
    3. The Uninvited Guests (Daniel)
    4. The Tragic Conclusion (Dairus)

    I stole this sermon title from my pastor. And I used his lines in the sermon: “Out of the sleeve of the night, came a disembodied hand that started writing graffiti on the wall!” Classic Melvin Wade!

    Praise God for those who were saved and added to the church in both of our morning services today!

    After both services, I signed copies of my new book, It Happens After Prayer, for members. What a joy! Thanks for the support and encouragement.

    I really missed being with my Bible Study Fellowship group the past several weeks.

    So the Bulls’ game-1 victory was a fluke. I got the Heat in 5.

    Who will the Heat meet from the Western Conference in the NBA finals?

    Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova today to retain her #1 WTA ranking and win her 50th tournament.

    Tiger Woods won The Players Championship at Sawgrass today. Is Tiger back?

    Random Thought: I really wish Christians “personalities” would STOP doing reality TV shows! Please… stop!
