Wow! How long has it been?

I thought I would check in and post again. Life has been busy that is for sure. Now that there are two princesses living in the castle..:) Sophia Grace turned a year old last month and is thriving with her big sister Hannah. I will try and post back here more often. After this long I am doubtful anyone even follows this blog anymore. But I am back and hope to share my thoughts, dreams and aspirations for me, Kim and my two Princesses. Love to you all.

We won a trip from famous author Jason Wright

I hope everyone had a wonderful Blessed Christmas and are ready for a Happy New Year. We had a great time with Family this holiday and enjoyed watching Hannah experience all of the magical fun of Christmas while also teaching her the true meaning. We are so blessed and I am enjoying these times with my daughter. Nothing beats watching her face light up when she opens something she asked Santa for or putting together toys and playing on the floor amongst all of the wrapping paper. It brings me back to my childhood. Precious times are these....
Jason Wright The Bestselling author of " Christmas Jars ", " The Wednesday Letters ", and " Recovering Charles " recently held a contest to win a trip for a weekend up in Woodstock Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley.....Kim loves his books and I am reading one now as well....Well, long story short, Kim entered the contest and won!! We are so excited. It looks like we will be traveling up there in March to visit with Jason and his family and tour beautiful Woodstock Virginia. Check out the video and link to his site. We could not believe that she won. What a nice Christmas gift. If you have not read any of his books, you need to pick them up. Great stuff!! We will let you know how the trip goes. Kim and I are really looking foreword to it.

A letter from Jesus

Merry Christmas one and all! Pay attention to the first paragraph.........

Dear Children,

It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born during this time of the year and that it was some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of pagan festival. Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.

How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own.. I don't care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

Now, having said that let Me go on. If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn't allow a scene depicting My birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If all My followers did that there wouldn't be any need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around town.

Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree. It was I who made all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching, explaining who I am in relation to you and what each of our tasks were. If you have forgotten that one, look up John 15:1 - 8.

If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of My birth here is my wish list. Choose something from it:

1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My birthday is being celebrated, write letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home. They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of year. I know, they tell Me all the time.

2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to know them personally. They just need to know that someone cares about them.

3. Instead of writing George complaining about the wording on the cards his staff sent out this year, why don't you write and tell him that you'll be praying for him and his family this year. Then follow up. It will be nice hearing from you again.

4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford and they don't need, spend time with them. Tell them the story of My birth, and why I came to live with you down here. Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.

5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her .

6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take their own life this season because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't know who that person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm smile; it could make the difference.

7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town calls the holiday, be patient with the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind word. Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a "Merry Christmas" that doesn't keep you from wishing them one. Then stop shopping there on Sunday. If the store didn't make so much money on that day they'd close and let their employees spend the day at home with their families

8. If you really want to make a difference, support a missionary-- especially one who takes My love and Good News to those who have never heard My name.

9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town who not only will have no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any presents to give or receive. If you don't know them, buy some food and a few gifts and give them to the Salvation Army or some other charity which believes in Me and they will make the delivery for you.

10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and loyalty to Me, then behave like a Christian. Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't do in My presence. Let people know by your actions (rather than your words) that you are one of mine.

Don't forget; I am Jesus and can take care of Myself. Just love Me and do what I have told you to do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check out the list above and get to work; time is short. I'll help you, but the ball is now in your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas with all those whom you love and remember:

Happy Thanksgiving to all

I hope everyone is doing great? We are doing fantastic and getting ready for the Holidays which are fast approaching. I wanted to take this time to say that I am so thankful for all that the Good Lord has provided me. First he gave me himself. He sent his son Jesus for me. He cared that much to die on the cross for me. He promised me everlasting life and salvation for following and believing in him. He gave me a wonderful family who raised me to know what is right and showed me this through God's examples. Thanks Mom and Dad and little Brother Dave. He gave me my precious wife Kim and my wonderful daughter Hannah. He has given me my Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and dear friends who all love me despite of me. he has provided us health, jobs, a home, clothes, food and many other things that we don't need but that make life easier and more convenient. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and have much to be thankful for. As you make your plans for Christmas I hope you will watch this video and take the time to really love one another and remember what Christmas is truly all about. God Bless! blog to you soon.

I'm still here!

I everybody. I hope you are all well. I just wanted to let you know that I am still here and have not forgotten to blog. Life has just been real busy lately. Work is getting busy and crazy for Kim and I. I have been a cleared Medic for almost a month now and I have been learning a ton and experiencing some extremely challenging calls. I take each shift one at a time and I have never worked harder in my job until now. It is tough but rewarding. Kim has been bombarded with all kinds of new requirements for teaching this year. She feels so overwhelmed lately. I pray that she has peace at work.

My Mom had her Appendix out recently and is home recovering very well. My Brother was back home for a short visit with us. It was nice to see him again and spend some time with him before he is off to his next assignment with the Air Force.

Hannah has started dance recently and of course loves it. She is ever the Princess. Kim and I had a nice date night and went and saw the movie Fireproof and it was really pretty good. So... to all of the Husbands out there, take it from me, if your wife has been wanting to see this movie, just go take her. It was a very good film. Your marriage will thank you.

So... that is probably the last month in a nutshell. I Hope to have some more in depth things to share with you all in the very near future. Oh.. Please say a prayer for my Grandma as she has shoulder surgery tomorrow. Thanks and bye for now! Love you all.
