Your commitments shape you life more than anything else. Your commitments can develop you or they can destroy you, but either way, they will define you.

Tell me what you're committed to and I'll tell you what you'll be in twenty years. We become whatever we're committed to.

What are you committed to????

I got this in a daily devotional I received today from someone in our small group. It really got me to thinking. What am I really committed to? Think about this today. What is it that you are truly and honestly committed to? Its easy to say God, but take a deeper look and see if there is any "other" commitments in the way of the one with God. Hope this gets you to thinking like it did me.

Quote For The Day

Hope this enlightens you and brightens your day! :)

"Life is like a booger. You keep picking at it until you get it, then wonder what to do with it."

Pray For Me

It seems I've bitten off more than I can chew this semester with the selection of classes I took. I will have to write a total of 15 papers (minimum 5 pages) as well as develop and conduct a research project. I read all day long, I write all day long, I get up in the middle of the night and work, yet there still doesn't seem to be enough of me to get it all done. Pray that I would have the strength to work through this and make it to May 5. (Last day of the semester) I'm really tired and frustrated right now. I need some peace.

What Am I Gonna Do With Those Girls??!!!

Tonight after school the girls and I were playing baseball in the front yard. Everything was going along great, we were laughing and having a good time and then it happened... Like a bad slow motion replay on America's funniest home videos, I pitched the ball...MaKayla swung the bat...then it was almost as if time stopped. I tried to move but my feet were glued to the ground, my hands were frozen as if I was pressed up against a glass and then it hit me. That's right, the baseball smacked me right in the goodies. I instantly let out a rather loud "UGH!!" then hit the ground like a sack of potatoes. I lay there rolling around on the ground trying not to cough up my umm....well you get the picture. As I lay there in agony, I hear this strange sound. It is almost like the sound of children laughing. Wait!!! It is children laughing. I look over and see both of my girls heehawing like they just saw one of the funniest things they had ever seen. Then to make matters worse Tamara yells out to MaKayla, "you really smacked him in the nuts that time!" What?!! What just came out of my baby's mouth? I tried not to laugh but I did. Well, I laughed and moaned at the same time. When I finally caught my breath and got everything back in its original place, I asked Tamara where she heard that. She replied, "I don't know, I was gonna say nuggets but nuts sounded better." MaKayla was still laughing. At this point humiliated and dejected I turned around and went inside to tell Pam and see if I could get any sympathy there (wink wink). Wouldn't you know it...she laughed too! I get absolutely no respect around this house. That's okay, they all have to go to sleep sometime.

That Was Fun!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go to Arizona on a quail hunt. And when I say weekend to Arizona, I mean WEEKEND. We left last Thursday around 2:00p.m. and arrived in Tucson around midnight. We got up at 6:00 on Friday morning, hunted all day Friday, and went to bed that night around 9:00. We then got up Saturday morning around 5:00 drove an hour and a half to the Arizona/Mexico border and again hunted all day. At this point we were about 30 miles from Tombstone so we of course had to go check that place out. We were all exhausted and decided we would stay the night in Tombstone. Once we got there and drove around and looked at the sights, we mutually decided to just "drive home until we couldn't drive anymore." This was 5:00 at this point. So away we went back to Texas. I arrived in my driveway at 4:30 on Sunday morning. That's right we drove over 21 hours (about 1400 miles according to Tom Tom) in two days hunting VERY HARD during that period. I woke up Sunday around noon and felt like someone had just whooped the snot out of me. I wasn't much fun at our Super Bowl party and I'm just now today starting to feel normal again. You know what though, I'd do it again in a heartbeat! You know me when it comes to hunting and if you didn't you do now :)
Cool picture of where we were hunting.
