Knock Knock, is anyone still watching my blog?

Yes it has been awhile. An I am sorry. It isn't that I don't have stuff to blog about, it is that I am just lazy. So here are some updates:

Sheila and I have joined the gym again and the trainer is killing us. It is kinda like paying someone to beat you up. I think I can get that free in certain parts of town! We are a week into it and I have muscles hurting that I didn't know I had. Don't like it, Don't like it one bit!!!

The horse is eating EVERYTHING! We are down 2 chair cushions, an Aim N Flame, a box of sharpies and a screen door (oh yeah: and a ton of dog food!) But he is getting along with all the other animals now. Our little rat terrier will put him in his place!

Been thinking allot about areas in my life that I hold back from God. I asked some friends if they ever ordered something at a drive though just to get home and find out something was missing? Well that is what I(we) sometimes do with God. I shorted Him something he ordered from me. He wanted the whole combo deal and I kept the fries! So I have been trying harder to release these areas of my life to God. After all He did pay for me with the ultimate price by Jesus Christ dying on the cross for me.

Crosslink (our youth) is doing great. The boys and the girls are doing separate studies that will go for a few more weeks. They are each praying for ONE person that could use a little more God in their lives. They are all itching for summer time!!!!

The ROCK (our Children's church) has been a total blast. I finally have a few grown ups helping and the kids have been having fun learning how to share God's gift with their friends. We are showing them a few different things that will help them share Jesus with others.

I am looking forward to the huge easter egg hunt we are putting on in a few. Now before you start with me about all that "Easter" stuff...DONT, not here, not now, not ever. I know all about it. BOTH sides. We are doing this to try and bless the community. We are going to feed them lunch and hopefully show them all a great time without asking ANYTHING in return. IF God opens some doors for His message we will (of course) share it. I know our harts and I know our intents. If you don't like this "Easter" stuff, please don't come. Thats all.

And lastly, my wonderful wife never ceases to amaze me. She really does rock my world and I can honestly say that she is my best friend. I am enjoying being in ministry with her. I really don't think I could do it without her. Hey Sheila: I love you.

Yeah I still read. If you need somebody to beat you up for free, you don't even have to go to those parts of town:) HAHAHa

Glad the horse hasn't eaten anybody yet, was worried about Jack Jack for a little while

Glad you are back! I wonder about you and your wife when I don't see anything new in a while!

You're not the only one who has been absent. I check every day or so to see what's up. Glad to hear you now have adult help for the kids.
