Blue Angels

Good day of driving. Kirsten and I are hoping to eat. Our healthy lifestyle is creating quite a challenge for us. Tonight we are going to eat out at Ed’s Fish Shack or something like that. I’m hoping they can grill us some chicken with steamed veggies. Keep your fingers crossed, otherwise I’m going to be a hungry boy. We saw the Blue Angles today as we drove. One of the fighters flew right over our care at below ceiling altitudes. The car shock, It was awesome!. I was so startled because I started to cross an overpass and I look to my left and I saw the canopy of the jet glaring at me. It was so close. Way cool!

The River

I was going through my music today. I was making playlists for our mission trip. For my workouts and stuff. I came across a song I hadn’t listened to in quite some time. It’s amazing how time and experience changes what songs mean to us. This song talked about life and its difficulties. Read the lyrics and listen to the song in this video.
garth brooks -- the river @ Yahoo! Video You know a dream is like a river Ever changin' as it flows And a dreamer's just a vessel That must follow where it goes Trying to learn from what's behind you And never knowing what's in store Makes each day a constant battle Just to stay between the shores...and I will sail my vessel 'Til the river runs dry Like a bird upon the wind These waters are my sky I'll never reach my destination If I never try So I will sail my vessel 'Til the river runs dry Too many times we stand aside And let the waters slip away 'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow Has now become today So don'…

Healthy Choices

Kirsten and I were talking last night about how others around us perceive our decision to eat health. I would argue, that is, to eat properly or the correct way. God wants us to fuel our bodies and make them the best they can be. When others see me choosing food I can eat while avoiding the other options available they almost turn there nose up at me. It really bugs me. For all you folks out there who give friends and family a hard time for being healthy, listen up. Would you serve alcohol to an alcoholic or would you find that socially unacceptable?Would you serve meat to a vegetarian?If you knew a guest was on a Dr. prescribed restrictive diet, would you try to accommodate there needs? (Crohn’s Disease, Allergies, ect….)My gut reaction is of course you would take action to make sure your guests could eat what you prepare. Then there are those of us who are making a choice to do the right thing and eat healthy. Many look at us as though we are asking too much. To all you people who …

Listen, God’s Way

A reoccurring theme in my life is listening. I’m sure I’ve written about this topic before but it’s worth repeating, because sometimes we aren’t listening. I have many personal experiences about not listening. I’m sure you do as well. One such instance of me not listening was when I left my dad’s tools out in the back yard (not the first or the last time). My dad had a bunch of tools for just about any job and I liked to take stuff apart and fix stuff. I asked if I could have the key to his tools and he gladly gave me the key and said be sure to put everything back when you’re done. So I remember helping fix my friend’s bike and after we got it working, we rode off. I forget to put my dad’s tools back where they belonged. Well the next day before my dad went to work he noticed the tools covered in morning dew beginning to rust. Let’s just say I was awakened quite abruptly that morning. He was furious. He was so mad that I hadn’t listened to his request, to put the tools away when I w…
