It has been a challenging week. Much going on at work. Work load increasing. Problems arising. people issues.

I am often reminded of how much God really loves us. I know that is a big leap. But i was walking today after a particularly difficult morning. (i needed to take a walk). As i was out, a bird flew by and i am reminded that God takes care of the sparrow. This gave me the strength to once again engage and move thru the rest of the day.

In other news, I may be making a trip to MI soon. I will be this weekend making some arrangements and figuring out if i have enough money. It has been too long.

well i am looking for a relaxing weekend. enjoy yours!

My Daughter is a 10th Grader

I was thinking the other day - where does the time go? Becca is a sophomore. Ug. Getting ready to take drivers ed. I was speaking to Becca's mom the other day - planning out some upcoming things that need to be purchased. Wow, seems like things move too fast. Pictures, year books, clothes, braces - or now no braces - band camp, color guard, football games, i just cannot keep up.

But things are good in Grand Haven. Becca has a challenging year ahead. She has a few classes that are going to require some time reading. But she has her "game face" on and i think it will be ok.

One regret i have is i wished a was a bigger reader. I think i go thru spurts. I get interested then lose interest. then it comes over me again. I really am a fair weather reader.

I really think this is going to be a good year for Becca. I pray she stays focused and keeps moving.

Here in OKC, things are heating up. I recently accepted a promotion at work. I am still trying to figure out if it was a good thing or not. It is challenging. Some of the dynamics of my boss are very interesting to say the least. I have a good team here. We get lots of stuff done and time to play too. My boss is learning sometimes the hard way how to be a better businessman. Sometimes kicking and screaming but he is learning.

Still looking for a church. I have been hanging at one for several months now. Still not connecting very well. I think the teaching is good and the worship style is close to mine but i have not locked in just yet. Going to give it a few more tries though.

I am hopeful i will be traveling back to michigan soon. Catch up with friends and family. I miss them so. Next round i need to catch up with my nephews while i am there. Man, talk about growing up. I want them on Facebook. Reminds me just how much older i am now.

Weight loss update. slowed way down. Could be because i am not taking enough time to do it. Ug. need to get back on that pony and ride!

Well, keep reading.

C of the C squared.

wow has it been this long?

it is june and things are going aok. I recently have been on a facebook craze. too addicting i must say. It is getting hot here now and summer is right around the corner.

The becca arrives next week! booyah. i cannot wait. it was been a moth since i have seen her. it will be good. She made Color Guard again for next year, so the summer for her will be full.

I have worked out a way to work here for 6 weeks and go to Michigan for 2. i am geeked about that so i can see family and friends in michigan more often.

Well it is storming pretty bad out and i need to hit the sack.

Good night

Friday before Valentines Day

Well, things are looking good. Cash is starting to move again with the company. This is a major relieve because it is always better to see things moving in my bank account instead of out...

Tried a new church last weekend. A major change in worship for me. I like the teaching/preaching. The song service is all acapella. I liked it. NOt sure i like it enough to hang with it. Anyway, it is a church that is currently attended by one of my co-workers. It is small and easy to get connected. More on that later.

Family is good. Weather here is better. Becca is in a good place right now.

Well i tried a different church on Sunday. it was good. i have been hanging at Life Church South here in OKC. Not really getting connected very well. The church i hit on Sunday is one attended by one of my co-workers. Interesting. It is a Church of Christ. Extremely traditional; no instruments; music from hymnal; speaker was good.

This quite a major transition for me. i like music. i like a worship band; not for the emotional rush, but i just like to hear music. I may hang here for a bit. Not sure, but i will pray it thru.

The paradox of my life is i deal with some of the most technically based churches in the states. large ones with high expections for their worship experience. yet, when it is all said and done, i like an acoustic set - one singer, guitar, piano, percussion. Weird i know.

Still rough times with cash flow at work. Times is hard - a friend of mine i used to work with would say. Would be nice to see cash flow improve and flow again.

once cash does start moving, the first place i am headed is to see my daughter. it has been too long.

it is late. Personal trainer kicking my butt in the morning. Good night

PS Facebook rocks!

wow has it been this long?

Much has happened.

I am in a tough period right now. I am feeling like a total failure in several areas. I really do not want to go into details right now but just to say it is hard.

Decisions i have to make. Hard stuff. I don't like it. I have been taking the time to re-evaluate my life as i do during this time of the year. I hate this stuff.

I can say - God is good and he is always there. thru good and bad, he is there.

I can also say i am finally on a weight loss program that is good for me. I have a personal trainer who kicks my butt 3 times a week. Why is that so hard? lol.

Missing my daughter. that has to be the biggest thing on my mind these days. i need some time away to connect with her and just be.

More later, i promise i will be alittle more faithful to the blog. much is clouding my mind right now. Gotta get a hold of it.
