Dressing Like a Monk…and it’s fashionable!

Perhaps you have seen the commercial for the Snuggie and where thinking the same thing that I was…how ridiculous you look wearing this stupid thing and if you were to give yourself a bowl-cut then you could wear your Snuggie to your local monastery and become a monk!

Additional info on the “Snuggie” – Check out this video from uTube.

Also according to the Urban Slang Dictionary a “Snuggie” is a weggie for a women in the crotch area. Think the company wants to rename and re-market this product?

Faith

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation.”

I have to admit that at times my faith is not as strong as it should be. Whenever I read the “faith chapter” of Hebrews 11 I marvel at how the men and women of God accomplished amazing things for him. During my quiet time this morning I prayed, “God, grant me a Hebrews 11 faith!” Planting a church requires a tremendous amount of faith and I can only pray that God would hear and honor my request because the days and weeks ahead will be difficult. But I am confident in this promise,

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it…That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”

Lots a happening!

Well the big news is out yesterday that Melissa is pregnant. Some other developments are in the works but cannot share all of them right yet. I can share about my involvement with the HOA where I live. Melissa and I live in the Bridgewater subdivision here in Douglasville and I have reached out to become involved. This past Saturday I was on the ballet for election to the board and this Saturday I will be walking the neighborhood with some of the other residents to collect enough votes to officially elect the board. The people in our neighborhood are interested in making this a great place to live and raise a family and in building a sense of community. God is a work and that excites me! Stay tuned for more updates!

Election Day 2008, Part 2

I managed to stay up late enough to hear one of most inspiring speeches I have ever heard. Our new president Barack Obama has renewed my faith in America and given me hope for the future. I am extremely proud to say that I cast my ballot for him. I believe that he is the right leader and the right time and his legacy will be one of greatness. I deeply respect John McCain and the graciousness that he displayed in the campaign and in his speech last night. I pray that God would bless our new president and his family. Last night I saw in the faces of the people who stood around to listen to Barack’s speech the spark of hope. Perhaps the church can learn something from this election; we have the hope of eternity. Can we inspire people to act and believe as Obama has done?

Election Day 2008

Today our nation elects a new leader and my hope and prayer is that people would vote for their candidate based on their own decision. This is the fifth election that I voted in and I can honestly say that this was one of the hardest when it came to choosing a candidate to vote for. In the past I have voted one way based on tradition and single-issue thinking. This time, I really began to ask the question of the candidates, “who is the best man to lead our country? I did not ask that question in the past and I sorry that I did not when I case my ballet previously. I believe that Barak Obama is the person who can best lead our country and I will be casting my ballet for him today. I am a registered Republican, but I believe in the change that he can bring to our country. I John McCain happens to win, then I will be satisfied in that people exercised their right to vote and America decided on him in the end. I pray for both of these men and the administration that they will be bringing into Washington in a few months. Our country has many challenges and I am committed to praying for whomever becomes our next president. Go vote today! If you don’t vote then you have not right to criticize the outcome.
