We All Get an Award

I'll be posting another article-length blog soon, but I just need to say how cool it is to get a couple of comments on my first post (below)! I love the interactivity (interconnectivity, interpossibility?) of blogging. Give yourself a pat on the back, and feel free to leave comments on any area of this blog.

Carmen is in Nashville today representing us at the Radio and Records Industry award summit. We were nominated for "Personality of the Year." Click here if you want to see the page. There are some really fine folks on this page, and it's an honor to be in their company, especially for a guy whose talents in radio are meager. What put me on this page is working with Dave and Carmen, two of the best, God-called professionals in the Christian radio industry, period.

At this moment I have no idea if we won or not. And that brings me to a message I'm going to deliver at a local church this Sunday. One of the application points is that we all try to find signficance in things that cannot deliver what they promise. We all want our lives to have made a dent in this world, but as Ecclesiastes says, our life is a vapor. The only things that crease the fabric of legacy are eternal things. Only what God does through me and you will last. This is a lifelong lesson for me, not as much in radio as in other areas.

When we come to the day heaven passes out awards, the standards will be quite different from the criteria of this world. I only hope I will have given enough of my heart to things that last so as to have a crown to throw at the feet of Jesus.

What an awesome reminder...that our lives are but a vapor and only what's done for and with Christ will last!

Thanks for the reminder.

Hello Bill,
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy listening to you guys. Although, I have to admit after listening for several years I still can't tell you and Dave apart. I start everyday with The Morning Cruise and it's awesome. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.
Sincerely, Dawn
