Blessed to be Stressed, I Guess?

Can shoulders, muscles or temples get any tighter? Can you think yourself this way? Give yourself an ulcer? The elephant on the chest?

You Can.

I'm working on it unless, I give it to Jesus right now. I mean the minute I finish this post. I won't go into a lot of detail now. Suffice it to say I have let events and people overwhelm me like a tsunami. I know the steps, I know the drill, it is helping a bit but there is only one who can really save me, can rescue me from this fear driven tension arena I have driven myself.

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.

Lamentations 3:40

Welcome Home

I would like to welcome home Christy, Herschel and their family from mission in Jos' Nigeria. You can read more about what they have been doing here. They just returned. I find it incredibly ironic that Christy and I went to high school together. Her Aunt is my wife, Lisa.
How about that?

Christy and her mom came to visit today with her daughter. She is also a worship leader who plays guitar. It was beautiful, songs of praise were coming through my kitchen throughout the after-noon.

At times I think I am really doing God's work. Then the Rothchilds come along and show what sacrifice truly is. The have been doing the real deal.

They are a light for to me to do more. I know God give us no more than we can handle through him but maybe it's time for me to expand my horizons.

Out of the Loop

Sorry, I have been out of the loop. I have been isolating a bit. Tied up in job, family and new house. The more I have stared at this computer the less I have wanted to write. I don't have any particular reason. The muse seemed to have totally left me.

Since I have gone back to work full time I have been overwhelmed with business. Life has been fantastic moneywise for the first time ever in my adult life. During the time I was down from my surgury I was in a cocoon or something. The butterfly has burst forth, being productive and liking it. I had struggled so long with pain that my potential was completely lost.

I want to thank those of you who have expressed concern for my well-being. I would like to apologize for disapearing without reason. I am going to slowly get back into this. I may not write every day but, I will be around. I can't wait to get back to all of my friends and start seeing what they are up to.
