It's SHOUTIN' Time!

This weekend, God has been so good to me...the encouragement He brought me is just astounding...like He HEAPED it on! Here is how it all started:

At the end of the day on Friday, I came home from work frustrated and down in spirit. As I believe all Christians are called to be missionaries in all aspects of life, I view my work as one of my mission fields. Lately it seems that people are making decisions to reject Christ and all He has to offer them; therefore, I have been sensing some rejection and criticism (not work related, but people related).  I know that it is not an outright rejection of me, but of Christ in me, 
but it still hurts none-the-less and to tell the truth, I have been depressed and really struggling with it lately.

Here Am I...Send Me!

Wow..I can't believe it has been 6 months since I blogged last. Where has the time gone??? As I sit here writing, I feel a bit melancholy. As we are rocketing down the corridor into our next season of ministry, I find myself sometimes wanting to slow down for a while and breathe.

A Tale of Two Friends ~ True Story

This past week has been one of the roughest in the last 3 years. Back in 2007, I worked with two people, Joey and Sean. Joey was retired Navy EOD and Sean was a Mechanical Engineer. I began trying to witness to both of them and tried to share Christ with them. They both died this week.

Battling the Bulge ~~ Week 1 ~~ 26 April - 1 May 2010

Arrgggg...whoever says weight loss is EASY...is either skinny or lying! Pick a plan, follow it, and exercise. Sounds simple enough, right? Should be easy enough, right? Don't know about you, but for me, it is HARD to pick a plan! I have read more diet books than you can imagine...Weight Watchers, Atkins, South Beach, 3-Hr Diet, Sonoma Diet, Reality Diet, Sugar Busters, Weigh Down, First Place, Heathly Heart Diet, Zone Diet...its enough to make my head spin! Picking a plan is just as hard as sticking to it!  Every one of them has pros and cons. I want the smorgasboard of plans!
