Happy New Years!

I am not one who usually likes new year's resolutions because I fell like whatever happens, happens... however I am now 25 as you may have read in one of my previous post and I should be making some goals and sticking with them and why not do it this coming up year in 2010?!?

Soo here goes nothing... maybe something

Drink more water

Get a sewing machine and then learn how to sew

I could always always work out more :)

Be a better





* I think my main goal for this year is going to replace words like "wish'', should and ''try'' with

I will! *

Good News! I'm a Sinner

We started a new series at church this morning called ''Are You Open''.
It made me think about where my heart is
Could it be
Angry at what someone else has done.
Guilty because of my own flawed contributions.
Discourage over the whole situation
You choose....

1 Timothy 1:12-16 says
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.

So in hindsight ''I am a sinner not a victim!''

Hank update

Hank was born last night (7 lbs 10 oz) by c-section after Samantha was in labor for 15 hours.
They took Hank up to the NICU for evaluation and to clear his lungs of muconium.
After a while of watching him, his breathing wasn’t getting any better so they did some further tests to see if they could find anything causing the breathing difficulties and they found that he has a heart condition called Transposition Of The Great Arteries.
Without any hesitation they transported Hank to Children’s Memorial Herman Hospital downtown.
They will perform a small surgery to keep him stabilized until he is a five days old and then perform the big surgery to correct the heart condition.
Please Pray for strength, courage and overwhelming peace for Samantha, Derric and their families and Pray for Hank and the doctors that will be making him all better.

Happy Sunday

Last year we watched this video and I was glad to see it again this morning at church. We also started a new series at church called The Christmas Connection -The story of Christ's birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love.
I urge you to check out Advent Conspiracy and just maybe you will want to
[Worship Fully]
[Spend Less]
[Give More]
[Love All]
And maybe Christmas became a world-changing event again
