Well, my week of working nights has finally come to a close. My body is extremely worn out and is ready for some needed rest. This has been one of those weeks where I seemed to just kind of come to a stop and wonder how can I get out the financial pinch that I am in. Let me just say that stop signs at intersections are placed for only a temporary stop, but not to STOP you from reaching your destination. When life hits us we tend to stop and ponder on it far more than what God ever intended. Jesus said, Come unto to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest. Jesus also said to cast ALL your anxiety on upon Him because He cares for you! Carly my loving but very patient wife, said to me, GET YOUR CHIN UP! You know sometimes getting the chin up is tough, but for us who call ourselves Christians, then it is a must. If not we find ourselves like Peter possibly walking on water, as Peter did, but taking our eyes off of who really matters and focusing on life, and then we start to sink. I must confess I have been in the sink mode this week. But thanks be to Jesus Christ, I don't have to carry this anxiety this stress, all I have to do is give it over to Jesus, who is able to do more than I could ever ask or even began to imagine. I believe that Jesus is calling us to look beyond our current situations, and our current frustrations, and look beyond, meaning look deep into His heart! I love Jesus, & I want to say that it is time for me to look beyond where I am, and look fully into the grace of Jesus Christ! Life is not about me anyhow but Jesus... Believe in the Right NOW! Living For Jesus...

What a blessing it is to follow and live daily for Jesus Christ! I just got home from work a couple hours ago with Kailey my oldest daughter reminding me that until I have showered and removed the stinch of work, I STINK! That made me think of life. You know sometimes life stinks, no matter how you wake up, and no matter what you face sometimes the truth is life stinks! At least Life stinks until its cleaned from the stinch of what ever is making it stink. I know that does not really make a lot of since except tonight at work, I got to talking to one of several of the men I work with who is not a believer yet whose life stinks with one problem after another. Problem #1 his dad has been told 30 days ago that he only has 90 days to live. Problem #2 his daughter not only has 4 brain tumors, but her cancer has returned, and they do not have the money to medically get the treatments that are needed, and she is only 28 yrs, old. I would have to say life in that situation would really stink even though James says to thankful for the valley's. Its kind of hard to give thanks when your dad is dying, and so is your daughter. More than ever in my life I believe that People Need the Lord! Walking down the road of life is not always simple or a piece of cake, but If we place our trust and our lives in Jesus Christ, remaning on his team it will get better, its when we take our eyes off the master that like Peter we began to drowned! I want to live for Jesus, pressing on in Christ, down the path He has called me too. I saw a poster at work that said, "Believe in the right NOW!" Life is tough, but we serve a God who remains faithful. Well, its time for me to get some shut eye before I start my next 12 hours. Good night.

Well, its 10:00 p.m. my 2 girls are in bed and the house is quiet. My day started off by getting up early to the yelling of Kailey & Lauryn wanting some milk to drink. One of my favorite things to do is wake up before the sun, and watch Barney! Well, not really but I sure love spending every moment I can with those 2 special girls. They both have a way of captivating my heart everyday, truly reminding me of how good life really is and just how good I truly have it! Not only do I have the worlds best kids, but I also have a Proverbs 31 wife, whom God has truly blessed me with! After watching Barney I got the girls dressed and we went outside play. About 9:00 A.M. My loving wife haulers out the door at me to let me know I missed the 7:30 A.M. men's prayer breakfast, which means I have a friend who is wondering where I am because I invited him to go and well, I forgot to go! Well, I took off into the house, took a quick shower, and rushed out the door the meet with my friend, praying he would forgive me. Well, he did forgive me and we had a great time together for a couple hours! I then came home to spend the rest of my day with my favorite people, my family! Life really is good, you see I woke up, I was able to spend some time outside in the beautiful Kansas weather, and then I was able to spend time playing and laughing with those who I love so much. Daily I am convinced that Life is hard, and Life has difficult roads, but because of Jesus Christ, Life is Good. Well, This is my first blog post and I am finished. Remember this Life is Good!
