Embracing accusation

I feel like every believer if they are honest feels less than perfect all the time. I think we feel like we are such failures. we hear that from other people and we tell ourselves that. I love this new song from Shane and Shane.
I will post the song as well so you can hear it.
thank God for other people that struggle like I do. And thank God that the enemy is right I can't do it but what the law could not do God did in Jesus.

Embracing accusation

Father of lies, coming to steal kill and destroy
All my hopes of being good enough
I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide”

He’s right, hallelujah, he’s right
The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed
That I am cursed and gone astray
I cannot gain salvation
Embracing accusation

Could the father of lies be telling the truth of
God to me tonight?
That if the penalty of sin is death, then death is mine
I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide”

The devil’s singing over me an age old song
That I am cursed and gone astray
Singing the first verse so conveniently over me
He’s forgotten the refrain.

thoughts for tonight

So tonight I have to make a change. I have to start going to bed early. Not really because I am being told to, I mean I don’t have a bedtime. I just think my body is not keeping up with my desire to stay up late.
So my thoughts for the night are as follows:
1) we have had 2 good weeks at church.
2) The sun is WAY to freaking hot these days.
3) My boy is literally a joy.
4) The new apple is less than impressive to me.
5) I am excited about the NFL draft stuff.
6) I hope Vick goes away for 5 years.
7) Madden 08 was pretty darn good
8) Nu-way wieiers dogs with out and sweet tea rock my world
9) Shane and Shane are going to be a great date this weekend
10) The fear of growing old has not hit me yet.
11) I am digging Elliot Smith right now. Thanks Ashley.
12) Some friends are going to be on a retreat next weekend. Pray for them.
13) Justin and Lisa are looking for a new church, I hope you guys find a church, Robert and Anna I hope the same for you.
14) I am ready for college football.
15) Chicken Biscuit Fridays.

I don’t think anyone knows this but every Friday we have Chicken Biscuits. We call it Chicken Biscuit Fridays. We have a chicken biscuit and our boy has a plan biscuit. Camille goes to get them and Levi and I play. When she comes home we eat biscuits together. Something about these Fridays I just love. I love having that routine and really love our Fridays as a family. The past few Fridays have been busy but the ones where it’s really a day for the 3 of us its great. I love these folks I live with. I am so lucky.

late one

So the obvious:
1) its been way to long since I have posted.
2) I need to be in bed but I feel a bit sick right now, so I blog.

Life has been very full lately. I have had such a hard time dealing with some friends moving away. Robert got a new job in Marietta, he was my electric guitar player and a darn good one at that. Justin and Lisa are moving to Birmingham, for justins new job. Justin plays everything: acoustic guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo and the penny whistle. His wife, Lisa, has one of the greatest voices I have ever sung with. She is really great. And now I know that I am going to loose my drummer in December, which is better than I thought because I was thinking it would be the 1st week of September.

Tonight I proved to my self that I am 29. Last week I kinda tweaked my quads. Tonight I played basketball and really hurt my left quad. It really hurts to even walk.
We got to see a hand full of people in Marietta the other night for the Rouxs welcome back party.
Camille really was to kind to me on the birthday. We went to a movie that rocked and went to dinner. Thanks to the Adairs for watching our little ball of energy.
Students start tomorrow.
I had a lot more to say buy I feel good enough to go to bed so I am out.
I love these two.

So Friday is my bride’s birthday. It is funny for one reason, for 10 days she is 3 years older than I am. I love my bride. Ya know when you are dating people and breaking up with people you never think you will find the person that will love you for you and even more, we are afraid that we wont be able to love someone else for themselves. She really is more than I had ever hoped for and more than I deserve.

So if you read this: happy birthday babe. You really are baskets full more than I could have ever dreamed of.

Song of the week

This week the song of the week is by my friend Mark Miller. He is by far the best acoustic guitar player i know. you can hear some of his SICK picking skills on the song "he hideth my soul". i love this guy, he is kind of like a big brother to me.
