Happy 1st Birthday Gavin

October 28, 2008 — 5 Comments

Today our littlest boy, Gavin, turns 1. Should be a good day.

Don’t tell Conner at worshipcity, but my Gavin is cuter. ROFL.

With the move of my blog and having a random 2 week break because of it I was not able to let everybody know about something big that happened on OCT 11th. It was my 11th anniversary of being married to the woman above, Kelly.

Like any marraige we have had our betters or for worse, richer or for poorer, and lots of sickness and health. I would not trade even one second of it for the world. Kelly is an awesome woman. Not only is she hot she is also a beautiful person inside as well. If you read my previous post you know that she is the one who made me smile when nothing else did. We have 3 great boys together and she is a wonderful mother.

I thank God for her everyday and that somehow he blessed me with a wife that looks this good and whos heart is amazing. Here is to our 20th!

A very cool Sunday. Great music and some major answers to prayer. One of my youth has been praying her mom would come to church. She has been taking some major leaps of faith and even annointed her mom with oil this week and prayed for her. Well this week God honored her faithfulness when her mom asked her If she could go to church with her. AWESOME! She had a tough day because the enemy is pushing back so if you can give her a quick prayer and her family that would be great.

I think overall the set was perfect. Everything went smooth this week. After service we had a lunchin and discussed as a church family or pending move and our churches options. Everything went great. Just  a real good Sunday.

16 Random Things

October 25, 2008 — 10 Comments

I was tagged by Conner and Russ to put this sucker together of 16 random things about me…So here we go.

1. I was a missionary with YWAM in mid 90’s. Totally wish I could do it again.

2. I was psuedo goth in mid 90’s as well. I had the black clothes and black trench coat. Wrote tons of morbid poetry and had one facial expression. Along with that I had some wicked cool long hair.

3. I got married age 20 in 1997. My long hair got cut in a freak salon accident, which I still go to counseling for. I now have more than one facial expression because I learned how to smile when I met my wife. Sadly though I am now bald.

4. I have a dream to open up a christian coffee house with book store. attempting to put feet on that dream in the near future.

5. In my Christian high school art class I created a comic book with some fun little veggie characters that had adventures and then had a moral to the story. The year was 1993. When my art teacher wet to get it out of the drawer to grade it she found it missing. Somebody stole it.
That same year Vegietales came out with their first video. Ironic? I think not. More counseling.

6. I was first attracted to my wife because of her looks. 11 years later I am floored that she agreed to marrying me.

7. I hate chinese food, but I could eat wonton soup and steamed dumplings every day.

8. One of my top 10 favorite movies is “The Neverending Story” and yes I can reinact scenes from it.

9. If the lyrics weren’t such trash I would totally own a britney spears CD. If not all of them.

10. Boxers…..

11. I have M-GAS (Modified – Gear Acquisition Syndrome). This is a little different than normal GAS in that while I want everything having to do with guitar and music gear I can’t afford any of it so I live vicariously through those who can.

12. I believe my concert may have been 2nd chapter of acts. I have seen them like 15 times. My last concert was Phil wickham. I have seen him twice.

13. I love musicals. There I said it. I feel so much better now. I love Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, Rent, Man of La Mancha, Miss Saigon, and tons of other musicals and musical movies. My favorite though by far is Godspell. I have seen it live 7 times now.

14. People make fun of me for my addiction to blogging. I tell them…”oh yeah..well…uh…SO!”

15. I have two spiritual gifts that others might not envy. Negativity and Cynicism. I have mastered them. Now Im working on the whole love, patient, kindness etc etc.

16. While in the Ukraine I saw God move in miracles like raising guy from dead, healing cancer, healing a paralized woman, having people speak different languages and others understanding them, healing the deaf. The greatest miracle by far for my life was teaching my to play guitar in a week. Thank You God!

and now it’s time to tag some others Lori, Drew, Brewster, Mud, Alastair, Jeremy, Jeff, Ben

Cosby Wisdom

This is a quote from Bill Cosby. It can be applied to how we do church as well.

Bill Cosby said:

“He didn’t know the secret to success, but the secret to failure was trying to please everyone.”
