Well, it has been a while


I was reminded last night that i have not blogged in a while. It was STRONGLY recommended that i update ASAP. In fact, this person has always been influental in my life and i knew i had better get it updated. Do not wake the sleeping bear.

Anyway, i had the opportunity to attend a birthday party yesterday for my nephew, Seth or big boy Seth. He is a character. When the Cary family move to their current residence, Seth was the one who knew all the neighbors before anyone else in the family. He is a bundle of energy and creativity. All of my nephews are a riot!! I enjoy to see them. And most of the family were there. It is always enjoyable to see and reconnect.

One of the best parts was a gift given by Mark and Marni. M & M are one of Seth's aunt and uncle. They live in Holland. A great couple and awesome kids. Anyway, the gift is an electric guitar that once touched plays guitar riffs and chord progressions. It is loud and obnoxious. He was running around -- making noise the rest of the evening.

it was fun!

Becca is winding down the summer and getting ready for school. Becca and her mom will be headed out soon to tackle the new school clothes hunt. The binder has been purchased and the backpack washed. I had the opportunity to see Becca's recently decorated locker. She is such a girl and her locker looked great.

Things are ASU are continually busy. I will be on a job local jobsite most of the week making the system work. That will be fun. Pulse Intermedia continues to ramp up slow but surely.

Gotta go for now!!!!

quarks (or qwerks)

I was listening to the radio this morning and they were discussing different quarks people have.

here are a few of mine:

1. when i see sign on the road or where ever, i count number of letters and see how fast i can find the middle of the sentence.
2. i have a need to use - 0.7 mm Bic Z4 pen. In addition, i need to have multiple colors.
3. When hanging clothing, i prefer to hang shirts/pants by color with matching hangers. In addition, i hang my t-shirts.

there are sooooo many more.

What quarks do you have?

I have another question

a friend of mine approached me and asked me this question:

He said,"what is wrong with this? If my wife and i are ok with it, what is wrong with going to the video store and renting a porn movie? we use it to spice up our sex life. What is wrong with that?"

He assured me that the wife is ok with it. I grilled him on that fact.

So how would you answer that question?

I have a question...

What comes to mind when you think of the word "community"?

I am curious....

leave a comment.

ok ok -- stop the presses!

There's a joke about a man who dies and goes to heaven. During the tour, his angel guide suddenly shushes him and tip-toes past a cloud with very tall walls. When they reach a distance, the man asks, "What was that cloud back there? How come we had to be so quiet?" And the angel guide replies, "Oh, that's the Lutheran wing. We have to be quiet because they think they're the only ones up here."

You know what the basic problem is? We all act like six year olds. Your wrong. No your wrong. NO YOUR WRONG.

We have a forgiving and understanding God. He is not going to condemn us all for not being the "RIGHT" religion. He would condemn us for our sinful nature, and theres not a religion or person out there that does not fit that bill. Thank the Lord for your grace and forgiveness or we would all be condemned. I try to lead my life as he would intend. Not always successful at it but I have always been a firm believer.

God is in pursuit of us. He loves us inspite of ourselves. I wonder how the world would change if 1. we love the Lord and 2. love our neighbors as ourselves. It is amazing the spins "we" put on things and label it God's will. Why can't we agree to disagree and move forward? You could take the Free Methodists, Wesleyans and Nazarene churchs, throw them in a bag, shake them up and not know who is how -- yet a merger of those demoninations will never happen because they cannot agree how the church should be structured. And alot of it boils down to verbage. Its a lobby -- no a narthex -- yikes?

well, i will not get lost in a debate about religions. Everyone has a little different way of worshiping. I just want to echo what has already been written -- thank you Lord that you are gracious and forgiving. Or heaven would be a lonely place to be.

that's my thought for the day,
