Rant of the day

I obviously took a break from talking about people that have impacted my life and I will continue that either this week while I am on vacation or next week when I return.
But today I wanted to post about where I live. Oconee county is where I stay.(that’s my inner gangster coming out) I like it here a lot. There is no traffic for the most part. There is a stupid new light that actually can add 5 min to a trip. I will spare you the details of what I like and move right to why I am posting.
Alcohol is one of the biggest issues in our town. People do not want restaurants to be able to sell anything other than wine and beer. That’s fine and all but the reasons are insane. The # 1 thing that I keep hearing is that if Liquor comes into Oconee the next thing will be strip clubs and bars(maybe become the breeding ground for young alcoholics like Athens. Yeah I said it, and parents that are cool with their 16 year old drinking and then sending them to UGA, I have seen your boy vomiting downtown in an alley, after a great night of fun. Responsible drinking is not taught.) Back to the strip clubs. Do you or anyone really think that Oconee is really going to get a strip club? The wont even let you build a house that is not on a one acre lot now. Which leads me to he other thing people think at that is: if liquor comes then so do “those people”. If you are not sure who “those people” are they are poor people. There are only 15 houses for sale under 160k. 5 of those are in Watkinsville. There are zero apartment complexes. Zero trailer parks. There are a couple of duplex. There are new cool town houses that start at 219k. the average new home cost 300+. Poor people can’t live here.

So what I am saying Oconee is trying to make itself a country club of people consumed with debt and a false sense righteousness.

I saw the following sign at a church last night and the sign in the back of a car. Please notice the 4 fish on the back of the car. The car sign says “vote no for alcohol”.



That’s my rant for the day.

My Boy

My boy is growing up. He is walking, signing and starting to say a few words. I don’t want to say to much because I would bore you, so I will just say this: I really love my boy and I will do whatever I can to protect him, equip him to be a man(boy is that an intimidating task) and provide for him. I really just wanted to sare this picture with everyone. Thanks BTM for the help with it.

Here are a couple of things on my mind

Questions:
Why do people feel the right to ask people questions that really could and probably are issues in someone’s life? Today in Chic-Fil-A I heard a lady at the desk ask a customer “so when are you going to get married?” the lady being asked look early 30’s and it was obvious that she was kind of saddened by the question. She responded “nope, still waiting”. Is marriage the best question to ask there? Don’t most women want to be married?(I know that is a generalization but most women I have known all wanted to be married, eventually at least) Is marriage the goal? I mean if the person says yes do we then want to talk to them? If the person just says no what then? “just stop wanting to talk to them?" Do you tell them if the stop wanting to be married and God will send you your man. You need to want God more than a Husband or a Baby. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Yes I think God needs to be the ultimate in every part of our lives BUT by saying you need to want God more, is saying that God’s blessings/gifts/grace is based on your obedience. Show me that in the Gospel.

The other question that kills me is “when are you going to have kids”. If you get that one you have already passed the 1st test of life(marriage) and are now on to phase 2, kids. I have 3 close friends who have struggled very hard with infertility. The women have had to suffer through good women saying things that hurt their tender hearts. Things like “if you wanted God more than a baby”, “just stop all the meds and you will get pregnant”, and really the list could go on. I love my son. And I in no way deserve to have him in my life. I didn’t pray harder than our friends, nor did I do greater deeds for Christ to earn my bride or my son. I just say all that to say that I think people should think about what they say and really try and see where the person is in life and unless you are close enough where they would tell you that they can’t get pregnant, don’t ask. If someone isn’t married, don’t make it worse by reminding him or her.

Mackie:
I acquired a firewire recording device made by Mackie. I say that to let you know that by the end of t he summer I plan to have some recording up on Myspace and maybe on here.

Rain:
I am very thankful for the rain. My yard desperately needed it!

Money:
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all just had a lot of it?

Lyrics:
We are singing and can it be and every time I sing it I get clod chills/goose bumps, whatever you call it. Read these lyrics:
He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race.
’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For O my God, it found out me!

WOW, what a song!

That’s all I got. Sorry for the soap box early in this post. This is my boy staning by his car. I doctored the picture up a bit, obviously.
