Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me.

Well, after thinking of the title of my “come back post” I am kinda in an awestruck moment. Looking up the lyrics to “Comfortably Numb” just thinking, “How many times to we get Comfortably Numb?” It’s kinda funny, we get into the mundane, day after day, stuff that we have to go through, and at the end of the day…are we living for the right reasons? I’m really not even sure what to say at the moment. So…

I can tell you that I was gonna say, “Well I am still here, I just kinda forgot about the whole blog. It actually turned 4 this month. I think I wanna get back into this blogging world again. I miss it. But does anyone really blog anymore? Or is it just all Facebook and Twitter? I’m more of a Twitterer then a Facebooker myself but thats besides the point, lol. If anyone still reads my blog (Seeming how I’ve been gone since 12/10/08) give me a comment. Let me know what you think or what you prefer. Are you a blogger? Facebooker? or Twitterer?” That’s what I was gonna say (which I guess I still said it, but you know what I mean).

Kinda just thinking…which I don’t know if that’s a good thing, lol. You guys just seen (well while reading this) God open up my eyes. I think I have become “Comfortably Numb” and its not enjoying or fulfilling at all. Have you become “Comfortably Numb?” Whether it be at your job, your relationship with your friend(s), your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, your volunteering at your church, your relationship with God…I think we need to go through our day to day routine and see what we have become “Comfortably Numb” to. What have you gotten so used to doing everyday that you just do it without thinking? Now taking out the trash when it is full is one thing, doing the dishes is one thing, those you most likely do without thinking. BUT, saying I love you to your loved one, praying to God, asking your friend(s) how they’re day went…now those are things that we need to go back and become UNcomfortably Numb with, we shouldn’t feel like we have to do those things, we need to feel like we WANT TO do those things because we care and love. So, shall we work to become UN-numb? Well all I got left to say is Wow. I just gotta say Thank You God for letting me see you and opening my eyes and you defiantly do work in mysterious ways, I mean Pink Floyd? lol

I’m sorry

Hello blog world. I have missed you. I kinda ditched ya for a few months, so sorry about that. It’s kinda been a rough/awesome/learning/difficult/great couple of months. Some of the rough/awesome/learning/difficult/great moments are: I became our XLR8 (youth) Technical Director, my car threw a rod a week ago and can’t find an engine to put in it, Courtney’s phone has been being really temperamental and it finally stopped working the other day, Courtney and I started our Marriage Mentorship course, Courtney and I pushed the wedding date from March to possibly September (still discussing that, may be later), Courtney got promoted at work, Courtney and I started going to an awesome small group, the graphics card in our Xbox 360 got toasted, there is probably a bunch more stuff that I’m not thinking about. Ahhhh, it felt good to blog again. Hopefully I see you all soon (instead of 2 months later).
Bye

Man’s Day at Crossroads

Today is Man’s Day Crossroads and it has been amazing. The band put some old school twists on “Come Now Is The Time To Worship” and “Blessed Be Your Name” which was of course amazing and awesome! Then the Bucketboys came out and rocked out. Then the Bucketboys came down Kid Crossing and picked some volunteers and just really interacted with the kids really well. It’s just been an amazing day.

Baptisms

We are having baptisms today! Very exciting indeed! We have 6 total this morning (2 per service). The baptismal is all nice and warm and ready to go! We have about 6 video testimonies for this morning that are always amazing and life changing that are part of our “True Crossroads Stories“. About every 3 months or so we do True Crossroads Stories with 4-7 video/live testimonies and baptisms. TCS is always amazing.

My dad has a blog…

now that’s CRAZY! He sure does, never thought that I would see the day when my dad started a blog.

No pop for you, five years!

I haven’t had pop in five days. No reason really, just haven’t. I went two days so I thought, ‘Hey, lets just see long I can go without pop.” So that means none of my precious Coke Cola…I LOVE THAT STUFF! Five (sometimes even more) pops a day isn’t good for ya…really one isn’t good for you but five is worse. Now to some of you this sounds really familiar, like a little over a year ago familiar but I really think I can do it this time, I haven’t really wanted any pop (except Sunday when they had all the drinks out for Class 101 and all those shiny, wet, cold, and red Coke cans were staring at me, I really wanted one…or four…then but the important thing is, I DIDN’T DO IT!). So it’s been all water, lemonade, and Gatorade for me and it’s actually working out quite well. I have slept a lot better to the past few days, I’ve been up at like 8/8:30 every morning and been awake all day (except Sunday but thats only because I was there for twelve and a half hours). So, lets see how long I can go without my little red cans.

Nimrod

I found an interesting verse last night…
8 Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD.” Genesis 10:8-9 (NIV)

So, my question is…Where did we get our modern day “Nimrod?”
