it's on

It has been a long time since I have blogged. Times have been a little tough on me as of late. I have been getting "beat up" in places where I thought it would never happen. It still suprises me on how people react when intimacy builds. We all have lived in a broken world our whole lives so we know really of nothing else.

Yet it has been good times as well. I went on retreat with my jr highers and two youngins gave their lives over to Christ. I also heard of the beginnings of reconciliation of a marriage that has been in litigations of divorce for three years.

So I am working on school and on my official ministry. My youth are growing into a group that only the holy Spirit could foster. Its too bad that some cannot see that. My time on this step in the journey is coming to a close and it is scaring the hell out of me.

But it is what it is.

a lapse

I have been having trouble with this blog as of late. Therefore I have not written anything in a long time. It seems not to work so well on my computers so I may just switch over to wordpress or something. I will let keep you posted.

A Wierd Moment

So I am sitting in my study, I was trying to pray and my mind wandered to how God has blessed me. To others, God's blessings means one thing or another; for me God has blessed me with a mind and a library. I have noticed that I am kind of a nerd. I really like to read. I like outside stuff, I mean that. But, I have taken vacation to do work that most would not consider as vacation activity. So nonetheless, it is true, I am a nerd. I counted books on hand in my library as 230+-, and that is not counting my western novels or about two or three boxes of books that I have here nor the all the books (which is a lot) that I left at my in-laws when I left to do my graduate work. What I think makes this more significant is that . . . I did not graduate from high school, I got my G.E.D.

And now I am in graduate school with a personal reference library of 230+- books (in my own study). Who would have thought!

I came to one other conclusion as well. I met a pastor, who is still dear to my heart, who always had about five books that he was reading and he told me that his biggest problem was not finishing books. I could not figure this out . . . until today, when I have about five books that I am reading at the same time! I am on the same path. Which means that I have to become more disciplined with my reading or I am going to have a lot of books that are unfinished.

Anyways, today was a wierd moment
