    Christmas Time is Here!

    Every year we get together with friends to celebrate Christmas Eve. Usually it's the same bunch but sometimes it's not and those are the times it really gets interesting! ;D Tonight was one of those nights! I love being able to celebrate with family and friends! I'm such a privileged man Gahh! So anyway, we got together like always and ate dinner (Ravioli, as is tradition) then all gathered for the White Elephant gift exchange (Which I totally love and was a new feature for this year) then just chilled for the rest of the night.

    The real reason I'm writing this is to encourage you all to get together with the ones you love and share your lives together.... That is the best gift one person can give to another so seriously DO IT. And in our sharing of love let's not let the true meaning of Christmas escape our tables or livingrooms or wherever we're gathering but let's celebrate His love for us that He gave His son. Thank you Jesus for coming to rescue us!

    So invest love in someone today, you won't regret it, and smile because it's CHRISTMAS!!!! Yay!!! :D

    Worst Day EVER!!!!

    So like a little more than a month ago I got a ticket in my work truck for improper lane usage. What happened is the gas station that my company has an account at is at the first light on Rt 83 just north of I55 and this particular day there were a lot of cars sitting at the light... Now it's a three lane road with a right and left turn lane so that's like 5 lanes.... Yeah anyway it's a lot of space and still the traffic was backed up pretty bad. So I noticed the Right turn lane was a few car lengths in front of me but no one was turning right, so I thought that it would be OK if I go on the shoulder for just a little ways.... I was WRONG! I guess there was a cop sitting right there and he gave me a ticket to the tune of $75, which isn't bad but I could have used that for something else. Now this is where the fun begins. I get the ticket and whatever have to pay it within 14 days of getting it or I'll have to show up in court... Knowing me (if any of you really know me) I sent it in on the 14th day which just happened to be a Saturday(which means the payment would really get in the mail until the next Monday). Within a couple days I receive a notice I have two tickets on my record (the other one was from 12-13-08 which was a 5 over the limit ticket right by my house! So stupid!) and if I get another one within 12 months of the first ticket they'll suspend my license for 3 months so I don't want to do that..). I'm thinking "Oh that's great and just what I need right now!" So then right after I got the notice of my two tickets I get another notice that I need to show up in court on today's date at 1pm. Now I'm thinkin "Oh man I must have to go to court because of the two tickets" whatever, I did break the law and need to pay the price so I tell my boss I need today off (which kinda worked out because they didn't work anyway... Because of this stupid rainy weather). I had to take my sister to school and on my way back from dropping her off I ran by the DeWalt repair store where they were fixing my two hammer drills. On my way to court from there I was getting on I290 from Rt83 and not paying attention I ran over this GINORMOUS pothole! Seriously out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a little Chinese man duck down the hole right before I hit it! Anyway so it totally ripped a 3 inch hole in the sidewall of my tire! so not only is it rainy and crappy out but now I have to change my tire because if I wait for roadside assistance I'll be late for court(which at that point I still thought I had to go to)..... I change my tire and get on my way but not before getting all wet!!!! (in my nice "court" clothes I might add) Ugh!!! I get to the court house and find out that I don't even have to be there(which was and still is a relief). I leave there (as soon as I possibly could :) and start on my way back home..... On my way.... My CD player in my car just stops working!!! It was switching from one CD to another all by itself (like it does all the time) and then it just gives me this message.... CDC HARDWARE ERROR...... I'm like "PERFECT!!! What is gonna break on me next!!!!!!!"..... Oh well, ya win some and ya lose some.... What can you do? God is still on the throne and I'm not too upset now that I repented for getting upset and made the choice to trust God. He has a plan for me even in all this stupid stuff happening. The moral of the story is don't be upset by the things that happen in your life.... But when you are.... Just ask Him to take it and give you His peace. :D

    PS I'm getting my new tire Monday or Tuesday and my CD Player is being looked at tomorrow so all will be worked out in due time. :D Trust HIM! :D

    it's been a while.....

    This is what I look like when our picknic gets rained out on Twitpic

    basically I just needed to post something on here so that I don't get excommunicated from the blogosphere. Life has been crazy lately.... I really don't have the time or words to explain it better than that but just know that the only reason (besides I'm lazy sometimes) I haven't posted is because I just don't have the time... plus I have so many things I want to post I just don't know where to start.... UGH I didn't know life would be this hard but I'm learning alot from it so I guess that's good.... :D Until next time I get inspired (or have a free second more like) Blessings and peace on you all. *the pic is from this weekend's Memorial Day Picknic that got rained out.... what a bummer! oh well...

    Does Satan Exist?

    I saw this broadcast on TV and thought that it's rare that the subject of faith or anything pertaining to it is covered by the news! It was actually refreshing to see that they didn't "slam" those of faith but actually did a great piece of journalism by not taking sides but bringing forth the facts. It's a cool debate and I suggest you watch it and think about how this may apply to your life.

    Here's the link....

    More Fiction Family...

    So I kinda made a boo boo.... I posted some of the pics from this concert on my other blog.... I don't know what I was thinking(clearly I wasn't). Anyway the link there is... if you want to save it/go check out the other pics....

    This is my last installment (unless I'm missing something) of these pics and I must say I'm a little sad to say I'm done editing them... I know I don't say that much because editing is actually a big job but I really had fun doing these so I'm a little sad but happy you now get to see them so I hope you enjoy!
