Act Your Age?

September 17, 2007 — 25 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot lately and finding that I have more to say on life for this blog then just showing the millions of readers cool resources. So here goes.

A funny thing has been coming into my brain lately..It has been spurred on by the many times I am around other adults and people my age. Usually it is when I am standing waiting for my son to come out of school, when we are at Navy, when I am waiting for my boy to finish his karate class, and most of all at guitar center(MECCA). This phenomenon is trying to find where I fit in. I am 30 years old prematurely bald and greying. I am married to a beautiful wickedly smart woman who does occupational therapy, a field where I could not survive on account of my lack of smartieness. I have 2 boys and one on the way. Why did I tell you that…well it’s because I don’t feel my age.

So there I am at my kids school with the other parents. They are in their BMW’s and wicked pricey cars, wearing pretty nice clothes and living the life and look of a normal adult. Me…well I’m in carpenter jeans from old navy, sneakers, a hat that says Sugar Daddy and a Tshirt with Spiderman on the front.  For Christmas this past year every present I got on the box said for 5 and under. I have my Optimus Prime sitting on my desk right next to my batman and gandolf. I have guitars and one is decked out in tribal stickers. I still love skulls and all things rock n roll. and my kids sit with me and watch steve vai and guitar festival videos.

There is more I can go into, but the reality is this. I am a gen x’r and love every minute of it, but I am also moving quite fine into the ipod generation…the funny thing is this doesnt help me act my “Age”

How old are you…acting?

It’s seems in this day …that is 2007 we don’t see too many miracles if any. When I did mission work over seas I saw them all the time. I think we have become complacent and the church does not rely on Christ as much as we should. We have so much that entangles us in our lives that we are missing “HIM”.

You saw in my last post that a friend was in need of prayer. His name is Stefan. He is a great Christian man, father, and husband. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I don’t know about you but I believe that the God of abraham and Issac..The God of David and the God of me is the same yesterday and today. He is a God of healing. He is a God of hope.
Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Please intercede with me for my friend and brother.

My birthday…A big one

June 11, 2007 — 7 Comments

Sat. June 9th was my 30th Birthday. Supposedly it is a pinnacle number. I don’t feel much different. ha ha ha.

It was a great day with a surprise party, walk in a park with my family, and of course presents. Some great gift cards from people in the church And some killer marvel and montey Python tshirst (merely a flesh wound) from my wife and kids. Too cool. My birthday party looked like a party for a 6 year old…decked out with spiderman tablecloth and plates. Web shooter party favors and masks. lol. Too cool.

It has been a good thirty years. I feel like while God has used me greatly He is just getting started.
