That's My Girl!

Tonight me and my girls had to run to Midland to do a little shopping. On the way home Pam asked if I was okay and I told her I was just really tired from being sick all week and I have lots of school work due and I feel like because I have been sick I have fallen behind on both school and home stuff. After a few more minutes of driving we hear this teary voice from the back seat, "Mommy you need to love Daddy more!" (It was my Tamara) She continued, "Daddy does lots for us and he's sick and you need to help." Pam asked "Don't I help out with the laundry, dishes, homework? And I work ya know." Tamara then replied even more teary, "you need to do more, I go to school now and you need to help Daddy! When I do my homework if he's sick I get up and take it to him, I don't ask him to get up. Daddy needs more lovin." Pam said, "I do love Daddy bunches and I take good care of him." Tamara again replied, "He needs more, you need to give more lovin." This whole time I can see this look of astonishment on Pam's face, this look of "I can't believe my daughter is defending her Daddy like this!" It was well... AWESOME!!! When we got home, I was smiling really big and Pam said, "that's just great, you got your daughters and what do I got?" I replied "you got to give Daddy more lovin!" To which she replied, "I'm getting me a freakin son!" I ran from the room, Daddy's lovin can wait. I'll just go let my precious babies take care of me, mean ole wife!! :)


For the last 3 days I have been sick. I have caught some kind of spring cold and it sucks! I am coughing my head off (that would be pretty funny if it were true) and I have no energy. All in all I just feel really BLAH!!! On the plus side my lack of energy has led me to watch a few movies this week and because I have nothing to write about I will rate these movies. "I Am Legend" gets an A, "August Rush" gets a B+ , "Bee Movie" gets a B and "Disturbia" gets an A-. Normally I don't watch this many movies but every night this week I get home and just fall on the couch and put a movie on. Can't wait to get over this bug I got. Maybe then my brain will work and I will have something better to write about!

Holy Ground

I was praying for God's help and direction this morning and a song I haven't heard in years came in my head. I just began singing it and could feel the presence of God around me. It amazes me no matter how down I get or how big my problem seems God is bigger and always has the answer.

Exodus 3:5 (The Message)
5 God said, "Don't come any closer. Remove your sandals from your feet. You're standing on holy ground."

When I walked through the doors I sensed his presence
And I knew this was a place where love abounds
For this is a temple the God we love abides here
And we are standing in his presence
On holy ground

We are standing on holy ground
And I know there are angels all around
Let us praise, Jesus now
For we are standing in his sweet presence
On holy ground

In his presence I know there is joy beyond all measure
And at his feet sweet peace of mind can still be found
For when we have a need he is still the answer
Reach out and claim it for we are standing
On holy ground

We are standing on holy ground
And I know there are angels all around
Let us praise, my Jesus now
For we are standing in his presence
On holy ground

That Ain't Right!

I really don't have time to be blogging but I have to tell this story real quick. Today I was picking up some lunch to go eat with MaKayla at school. I pull out of the Long John Silvers parking lot and see this homeless guy walking my way. That's nothing out of the ordinary you say! That's what I thought, but something didn't look right, something caught my eye. So I glanced back over and sure enough, the hobo was wearing an IPOD!!!! What in the sam hill is a homeless guy doing with an ipod? I mean where's he gonna download songs? How's he gonna charge it? What kind of music does a hobo listen to? (on the road again?) This baffled me. It was just wrong on so many levels, why does this hobo of all people need an ipod? Maybe I should find whatever street corner he's standing on and get me a cardboard sign and forget about college and midterms and all that bologna. I can see it now, me standing at the entry to the Wal-mart holding a card board sign that reads, "Will work for Ipod." (it just might work!) And that my friends is my story of the hobo with an ipod, the end!

I'm Still Alive!

I know it's been awhile but I am completely swamped right now. I have 3 exams and a midterm all this week. I have plenty to write about, just no time to do it. I will write again as soon as this chaos leaves. (assuming I still have a brain left!)

Time For A Change

My entire life I have been good at many things. I have accomplished much yet have nothing to show for it. All of my knowledge and all of my talents have taken me as far as I can go. I've realized that I don't really fear failure because everyone fails, I fear success and the responsibilities that come with it, so I sabotage all of my accomplishments leaving me in a place of uncertain comfort. Yet I know I was created for more than this. It's time to surrender it all and see not how far I can go but how far HE will take me.
My Desire
You want to be real, you want to be empty inside
You want to be someone laying down your pride
You want to be someone someday
Then lay it all down before the king

You want to be whole, you want to have purpose inside
You want to have virtue and purify your mind
You want to be set free today
Then lay it all down before the king

This is my desire, this is my return
This is my desire to be used by you

You want to be real, you want to be empty inside
And I know my heart is to feel you near
And I know my life
It's to do your will
It's to do your will

All my life I have seen
Where you've taken me
Beyond all I have hoped
And there's more left unseen

There's not much I can do to repay all you've done
So I give my hands to use

This is my desire, this is my return
This is my desire to be used by you
