Christmas is a comin'...

Hello all. I was surfin' YouTube for clips, and found this one from the Christmas episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. For those of you who do not know about the show, it was an NBC show last season that was absolutely great and smart.

This clip just cracked me up at the time, and still does. I hope you enjoy

God is Good

God is Good.

This past Friday night, I was driving home with my three boys from a Royal Rangers event, when something went "POP" under my car hood. At first, I thought it was a tire. But when nothing went flat, I started to worry. Luckily, we did make it home before the car started giving way. When I checked under the hood, all I could tell was there was an aweful lot of fluid coating my engine, but I wasn't sure what type of fluid it was.

That was it. My last straw.....

Over the past 6 months, the place I worked for over 6 years decided to just close down the office I was working in, and let everyone go (roughly 100 people). Since this time, it seems like everything in my home has chosen now to break down and fall apart as well. The air conditioning quit working, my kitchen stove decided it didn't want to heat anymore, my fridge quit working (a day after the stove went kaput!). Many other things had chosen to quit working at this time as well.

Through it all, I have prayed and trusted that God would not give me more that I could take. God has been so good to me and my family. We have been going to a church for the past year that has basically turned my life more towards God and his calling more than any church has for a long time. I've been closer to God more this year than probably at any other time in my life. I was actually TITHING for the first time (this shocked my wife too).

....Everything around me is falling apart. Now the car up and dies on me. I can't take anymore. This is the last straw. As I was standing across from my wife uttering these feeling of frustration, the peace of God came over me, and reminded me again that I belonged to him, and He would not let me go.

Saturday morning, I went out to get a look at the engine, and found a heater hose had exploded. Although I had to move some things out of the way to get to it, it was a pretty easy fix, even for a novice like me. And it only cost me about $25 to fix.

God is Good.

The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. Psalm 145:13c

Christian MySpace Alternative - - Social Networking

I just wanted to pass on this new site that is going like gangbusters. Many of my friends at church told me about It's actually pretty cool (coming from someone who was "anti-MySpace"). The link above is to my page. You can check it out. If you join, and then decide it's not for you, you can delete your account. Pretty cool.

OK. Quick question for you. Are you looking for the website? Well, you have sorta found it, but not really.

I have redesigned our family homepage, which is still located at It would appear that you have bookmarked the site, which is where you were redirected to before.

Please reset your bookmark to point to, and you won't miss anything. I plan to keep this site as my personal blog, which is also being linked from our homepage, so you won't miss a thing here either.

Greetings from Edisto Beach SC!

After two grueling days in the van with cranky kids and just plain getting sick of being 6 inches from everyone else, we finally made it to South Carolina and Edisto Beach. YEAH!!!! We arrived Sunday evening, got checked in, and almost immediately headed for the beach. As late as it was, I figured it was to just go look at it, but I was mistaken apparently. As it turned out, it was the perfect solution for being cooped up in a van for two days. Now the fun part of vacation can begin.

A Day at the Jones Academy

I finally cleaned off the camera of all the pictures and videos, and found this one that I just had to share. It will be added to the video library soon, but you can see the video now here. Enjoy.
