Plans, plans, plans

Today, I got a glimpse of where some of the walls for our studios may go. The building we are buying has a wide open space that we are shaping into 3 audio offices, a computer room, and a great big main studio. This is getting very exciting. With the mere flip of a pen, we are shaping the future home of Family Friendly WBGL. How cool is that?

I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that God made us to be a creative people. His plan takes shape often through our creativity. How exciting the He includes us and that we are shaping His kingdom. His tools, His talents, His everything. Go God!

Father, thanks for including us in this process. We are amazed by what You are doing, and we are humbled that You have chosen to include us.

E-mail takes on a whole new meaning

You know what it's like when your waiting for good news? You're just slightly more attune to your surroundings. You sense things are happening, moving, increasing when, more than likely, they are not. I forget sometimes the rest of the world sleeps like I do.
I can now check my e-mail from my phone, so right after my morning shower, I check for any updates. Several blogs I'm following have been updated. I'll read them later. A couple of very clever junk mail pieces have made it through my filters. Delete. No building news. No news is good news? Not when you need news to move forward. I guess my prayer for today needs to be, "Lord, let me enjoy the journey. Do in me what You do best, Lord. My attention is on you. Not the building, not the Fall fund raiser, but on You. Thank you Lord, for this amazing journey!

Phone call with the attorney

I'm so glad I never went to law school, but I'm also so glad that Rick did. I would rather color outside of the lines, but I need someone willing to dot every "i" and cross every "t".

Added 2 thing to the contract, asked for definition on 3, and sometime this afternoon or tomorrow, it goes to the owners. Pray for smoooth delivery. Gee, I do sound like an expectant father, don't I?

Monday feels different

You know how Monday's usually feel? Sort of like a ramp up? Practice, if you will, for the rest of the week. The meat of the week. The Tuesday through Thursday crunch of the week. Since we launched full on into building mode, Monday's are taking on a whole new meaning. First off, they are more tiring, because I'm finding they follow Sunday night. Sunday nights have become a time when I spend much too much time moving walls in my head and trying to make sure every one on our team has the right amount of space for their mission within our organization, and how do I make sure my office is the biggest! Kidding.
This afternoon a possible phone call with our attorney to go over the contract before we present it to the building owners. Pray for clarity of schedules, as well as sound mind, because the coffee ain't cutting it. Do something adventurous today. You better believe I am!

Sunday Afternoon but I've got building on the brain

So, tomorrow is Monday, week two of our building news season. There are 2 things I'm going to request be in the contract, and then we will submit it to the owners. Pray that by Friday, we will all be on the same page concerning all aspects of the contract. I hope to be able to share some images and possibly a video of the building sometime this week. Thanks for joining us on this very exciting journey.

Inspection is done. Contract 1.0

The inspection came back on the building. A couple of minor things, (21 year old building) 2 semi major things, but all in all, very promising. Our attorney has drafted a contract, and the owners should be looking at that today or the beginning of next week. Pray that it is received well, and that God is honored by it. This is a big step in the process. Thanks to all who called in to give to this project yesterday. It was not our intention to make the announcement a fund raising opportunity, but we were very thankful. Here's a link, if you want to give towards our building project:

I will posting a video later today of the announcement, if you missed it, and I will post a link here later today.

I pray you have an awesome weekend. I am so looking forward to taking my lovely daughter Hannah to the Purity Ball.

Day One

The announcement has been made. WBGL has made an offer on a new building, and that offer has been accepted. Lots of work to do, but we are on the road. This building has much more room to grow, dream, and "do things that matte"r in. Yesterday, the inspection was done. As I'm writing this, I still haven't seen the report. Pray it's good. Thanks for praying with us, and supporting this project. If you want to give towards it now, here's a link:

The day before the big reveal

My first blog post. I should have started this long ago! We at WBGL have made an official offer on a building, that offer has been accepted, and we are now in the "dot the I and cross the T" season. Lots of inspections, lawyers doing what lawyers do, and the rest of the stuff involved in a major purchase. It will be a season or so before we snap the picture of the keys being handed off, but this is a major step in our 3 year adventure of finding or building a building. I will do my best to post at the very least weekly, and at the very most, daily to let you enjoy the journey along with all of us here at Family Friendly WBGL. If there's no joy in the journey, you might as well stay put, right?
