July 29,2004

Any day I take off from work is a good day!! Went to Tj Maxx and Kohls for some stuff we needed. Great weather..great sunshine..great family..thanks be to God. I often look back to when I was in the Army and alone(gets deep here)I know that God has plans for me but one little signature could've re-enlisted me and I probably would've never met Michelle or we would've never had D and G. I'm thankful so much everyday of what I have and very seldomly pray for what I haven't . That make any sense?? It's like I am so content to be where I am and doing what I'm doing. Now if I can get more people to go listen to Lanky at the High School on Sundays.
  If everyone I invited shows up at our gatherings we are gonna need alot of coffee and doughnuts!! I feel HE made me persistent so I would never ever get discouraged or give up on trying. A very good trait to have I might add....not to friends and family perhaps, yet to people I meet at the coffee shop, the grocery store, the gym. It seems there is always a hello, how ya been? I been good..been at HMI for thirteen kids?? yeah too...Daughter is 6.. son is almost 3... got another one comin' in Sept. You too? Congrats!! That's awesome. Hey Do you guys go to church? I get the biggest smile on my face when they say no and I tell them of Watermark and how much better my life has been with Jesus in it. Nuff' said till next time. EPH 5:2
Peace Out,
and have a pleasant tommorrow.

   So I get a call from Dr. Hatts office today and it seems I have high cholesterol. I thought I just had really bad tendonitis by my ankles. Michelle (my awesome wife) convinced me to go to get a physical(first one since 1991 in the Army).  I finally caved in and went..for this I thank my wife and God. It's pretty high so now I am deciding on whether to eat oat meal or bananas for the remainder of my life. Takes the fun out of cookouts huh?? I'll be the one bringing the porto bella mushrooms to the grill. Hey, at least I caught it before it caught me. Those brats that Lanky and I ate were probably the one thing that put me over the limit!! So here I am blogging about my health problems...I sound just like a parent.
 Cool lyrics..
Peace Out.
I'm a beacon with a big ol' light
[What will people thinkWhen they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak?What will people doWhen they find that's it's true?]Separated, I cut myself cleanFrom a past that comes back in my darkest of dreamsBeen apprehended by a spiritual forceAnd a grace that replaced all the me I've divorcedI saw a man with tat on his big fat bellyIt wiggled around like marmalade jellyIt took me a while to catch what it saidCause I had to match the rhythmOf his belly with my head'Jesus Saves' is what it raved in a typical tattoo greenHe stood on a box in the middle of the cityAnd claimed he had a dream(chorus)What will people thinkWhen they hear that I'm a Jesus freakWhat will people do when they find that it's trueI don't really care if they label me a Jesus freakThere ain't no disguising the truthKamikaze, my death is gainI've been marked by my MakerA peculiar displayThe high and lofty, they see me as weakCause I won't live and die for the power they seekThere was a man from the desert with naps in his headThe sand that he walked was also his bedThe words that he spoke made the people assumeThere wasn't too much left in the upper roomWith skins on his back and hair on his faceThey thought he was strange by the locusts he ateThe Pharisees tripped when they heard him speakUntil the king took the head of this Jesus freak(repeat chorus 2x)People say I'm strange, does it make me a strangerThat my best friend was born in a mangerPeople say I'm strange, does it make me a strangerThat my best friend was born in a manger(repeat chorus 2x)What will people think[What will people think]What will people do[What will people do]I don't really care[What else can I say]There ain't no disguising the truth[Jesus is the way]
ahhhhhhh I like it!!!!

Well we are extending our camping weekend due to the fact that they have a pool and we don't. My kids are like fish..I can only be blessed with the last one being the same as the first two. We know alot of kids that freak out when they get thier face kids...forget it...if there was a 5m board in any pool I am almost positive that D&G would jump without hesitation(at least once).
   I scheduled my third drum party on the first of August..things are picking up (hopefully) Well sorry for such a short blog, but my kids wanna swim.

A Blogger?? I'm a blogger???We are heading out camping once again to a place about 8 miles down the road. They have a pool!! That camper is one of the best investments and purchases this family has made. We have had so many fun and memorable times while camping. Nuff 'said.
Had a great cookout with Lanky and his youngins tonight...good friends, good fun. Got to watch him kick some serious booty on my Spider-man 2 game.
Packin' up the Roo for another voyage. A small trip perhaps, yet the Minnow was only scheduled for a 3 hour tour. what? A Three Hour Tour. Bugaboo and Lil' G love the Roo..they love the campgrounds not to mention the smores and the food and all the attention and 1 on 1 time with Mom and Dad.
Time for bed...I will get deeper as my blog emerges...this has been a surface blog only!!
