Jamey, Nathan and I went to visit Jason Simpson today at the TV Station (abc3340 in Hoover, Alabama). I really enjoyed myself. Up until the last 3 or 4 months, I haven't been in touch with Jason since High School. It is so nice to know that he's doing so well, and he is still as nice, down-to-earth, and funny as I remember.
Life (in general) tends to change people's personalities for the worse. So many people, especially Christians it seems, are bitter or resentful nowadays, no matter how good or bad their situation. You can tell that Jason knows where his strength comes from (The Lord), and that he is taking life in stride. Jamey and I strive to do the same daily. It doesn't always happen, but we try to let the Lord 'grow us' in spite of ourselves. My prayer is that Nathan sees this quality in us and our friends, and that he seeks the Lord daily in his life as he gets older.
Jamey and Nathan really enjoyed themselves today. We got to sit in on the Noon Day news broadcast to see how things worked during the show. Jamey's favorite part of the day was getting to be at the Weather Station, and getting to play with all the Tower Cameras and satellite images between the morning and noon shows. Nathan's favorite part was getting to climb up and down off the stage step! LOL Oh, the joy and simplicity of a two-year-old!
My favorite part was getting to catch up with an old classmate/newfound friend.
I'll post pictures of our trip as soon as I get them.
A Long Way Off
