This is love:

So some people ask the question, What is Love? I know now.
Levi has been sick these last week and a half. Which has been NO joy for us. We have been giving him some medicine that had made him better until the day before Thanksgiving. It all got worse. Thanksgiving day he was ill, we got 2 hours of sleep, the day after grumpy but better, then today another step in the right direction. We have been bathing him in some vapor shampoo for his sinuses. He hadn’t enjoyed baths these past couple of days so I decided to take one with him. So I am taking a bath with my boy, I clean him off and then pick him up to finish him off and then hand him to his mom, he pees in the water. AWESOME. So I sit the the water finish cleaning him, rinse him and then proceed to wash myself off.
That’s love, sitting in your sons pee to clean him off. Man I would have never thought this would be me.
Ok so I had no intent on making this anything about Jesus, but I am glad he took on my crap, so that I can be clean.

Come...

It is so nice to know that God says "come" even when we in no way deserve it, and he will satisfy our needs.
"Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.” (Isaiah 55:1-3)

I think I want to vomit!



So a friend of mine sent me a link to this game and I must say I am so glad someone has figured out how to have the best life now. One problem: SIN and people that sin. I can see some people buying this game thinking they will figure out how to have the best life. But what happens when life doesn’t get better?

The other big thing that ticks me off about that he is doing this in the name of the Gospel. I honestly don’t remember reading Jesus saying “believe in me and you will have the best life now” because honestly I think life is a bit harder now. I DO think we as children of God, will have a better life than we can even imagine.

Maybe I am being close-minded. I think for now I am going to go out and buy the game so it can hook me up with the best life possible, NOW. I mean it cant be a waste of money to at least try it.

Prepare yourself, you just might be jealous of me soon. I am going to to have the best life possible, I mean as soon as I buy this game I will. I expect to solve some long issues in my life, get rich, pay off my house and Camille’s car, become the best dad ever, become a person that takes better care of his lawn, play guitar better than Jimi Hendrix, and finally become a someone who likes to exercise. And you know what I don’t think any of that is to much to ask, I just want the best life possible NOW!

strange

quote of the day

“The engagement of the heart in worship is the
coming alive of the feelings and emotions and
affections of the heart. Where feelings for God
are dead, worship is dead.”
(John Piper, Desiring God, 68)

Great morning!

So we have had our most consistent weeks as a worship team since February. I say that because it brings me much joy to see our progress over the recent months. What has made the difference? Well I think that we all are practicing more and are working hard at to put out the best sound possible. God has been great to us by allowing us to lead others in worshiping him. What an honor.

On a side note I had a great visit with the Bailey’s. I miss those guys and wish I had taken more advantage of you guys living right down the road.

Congrats to the Bath’s. God does do all things well. You are in mine and Camille’s prayers, and we look forward to hanging out when you guys get back in town.

I also never sent out a Congrats to my boy Adam. Congrats, I can’t wait to hang out with you guys.

SO I really am excited about what is happening in our church, I look forward to seeing what God is going to do through us in the coming years.

One more thing: I am sick of hearing about the elections. I know some people really think Bush is Satan and other people thought Clinton was, but I don’t care because they are both flawed men trying to do what they is best for our country. Regardless if you agree or not with the leadership of the country, shut-up. I am sick of people griping about democrats in the house and senate. I am also sick of people detesting Bush.

Some other random rants, to continue from the other night:
-I still hate the Yankees
-Where did the UGA bulldogs come from against AU?
-Rosie O’Donnell is pretty much not my favorite person
-Neither is Tom Cruise
-360 is better than advertised
-The Driver’s are one of the most talented married couples I know
-Bluster can flippen sing
-You can’t get much cooler than Bono
-Borat: are you kidding? The commercials don’t even seem funny.
-Maybe Chris Thile Thursday or guitar hero, not sure.
-GT is for real, even tho they looked bad this week.
-90210 is finally on DVD…I wont buy it but I thought it was funny.

That’s enough for now. I will rant more later.

I am going to start taking pictures, good ones.
Matt’s sermons are now on Podcast.
One of my best friends got married to someone I have never met, after dating for a week, ok that is exaggerated, but mostly true.
