Some Good Movies We've Seen in the Past Month

Bella (PG-13)
This is a great pro-life movie. Excellent acting throughout! There are some disturbing scenes, however.

The Ultimate Gift (PG)
This one is about a young man who grows from a spoiled brat into a selfless man through a series of 'gifts' that his deceased grandfather gives him. Good movie!

WaterHorse (PG)
Good, funny, kids' movie. Great cinematography!

Well, I just got offered a full time job! It would pay well above minimum wage too. WOWZA! FULL-time! .....I dunno if I could do it! :D
Another bonus is I would be able to carpool to work with Nathan and save on gas!

Wowza #2: I'm most likely going to be Nate's Cable Reel Assembler and Supplier guy.... for Sleaddventures. I actually just spent a ton of my savings ordering the equipment required to assemble cable reels. It should be shipped here in the next few days.

Wowza #3: I've got a neighbor who has a bunch of yard work for me to do.... and he's paying me. :D I actually worked through the afternoon for him today... stacking wood, weed-whacking, mowing, etc.

Wowza #4: God is soo good. That's the long and short of it.... God is so good.
There is soo much stuff that has been happening that I wish I could post..... there just isn't enough time. Nevertheless, I'll try to cover the basics of how God has been blessing me.

Well, it seems the topic of money has been coming up a lot lately... other guys I know are looking for ways to make money; in our church discipleship program, we've been discussing how to handle finances and be debt free; Nathan is working away like an ant earning money so he can buy a house; and so on, etc. So it got me thinking about how much money I need to make in order to do all these things such as- buy a car, pay for insurance, build up savings, stay out of debt, pay for a house, raise a family, etc. So I did a little math and found that I'm gonna have to be makin' ALOT of money if I want to be able to buy a house by the time I'm twenty. And then, all of a sudden I've been offered a full-time job and all these money-making opportunities. Wowza! :D
So, in conclusion, God has been good to me. He is good. And He is always going to be good.

Have a blessed day!

Isaiah 40

Do you ever get tired? heh heh. :) I bet you do.

Well... lately I've been kinda tired. And I was trying to figure out why I was feeling tired and unmotivated. Was it cuz speech club is over? Was it because I had a slight cold? Was it because school is tiring? Though these things probly contributed to my 'general' tiredness, they weren't the main reasons.

When I thought about it, I realized the main reason was my lack of trust in God.

I'd been worrying about the future... like how I was going to be able to earn enough money to support a family; or pay for a house; or what job or business would bring in the most income; or if I wanted to become a professional web designer how would I do it. And when you start worrying about the future like that, things start to seem overwhelming.

I was worrying about things that I can't really control and started to feel kinda hopeless. So, Isaiah 40 came to mind about how God is mighty and Sovereign and worthy of our faith and trust.

Isaiah 40-
"28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

Are you putting your faith and trust in the everlasting God? Or are you feeling tired, worried, and unmotivated like I was? If you are, remember that God is sovereign, He controls your future, and He is the One you should put your hope in.

I urge you to read the whole chapter of Isaiah 40. It is soo good! You can read the whole thing at

God bless... and take luck!

Back in the Day... (#2)

This is back in the day when I was a street musician... on a coffee table.

Pictured here is one of the gigs I did back in '82. I got a whopping $7.36 for that concert!

You shoulda seen it.... everyone was going wild!

The guys were yellin', the girls were screaming, and I cranked out those power chords like flames off of a match-stick! (hm... maybe 'sparks off a welding machine' would be better).

Well, anyway, those days are gone now.... sniff* :(

I realized I couldn't exactly make a living as a street musician. That's why, later on, I applied for the FBI.

Have a good day! :)

Back in the Day...

This is back in the day when I worked for the FBI.

Don't tell them I posted this though.... they might have to assassinate me or something awful like that.

P.S. The only reason I don't work for them anymore is because they didn't like my blue tie......too bad.
