Tis the season…to be crazy!

It is a bit colder here in South Carolina. We have enjoyed spending time with my wife, Dad, Mom, Justin, and Jeff.

With Thanksgiving day almost here it is the time of year to be truly grateful. At the same time, Thanksgiving day is over-run with ads for “Black Friday.” I have memories as a kid of trying to keep up with my mom and her sisters shopping for deals.

I’ve found a great website that shows deals at each store. I plan on getting some shopping done for Christmas.

Although there are great deals on Friday, these people in the video took it too far!

Heading Home

We are headed to see my family in Greenville, South Carolina for Thanksgiving. We plan to leave shortly after church. It will be a great time of fellowship and encouragement for me and Cassidy.

We plan on relaxing, eating, making videos with my brother Justin (J-rob Productions), and enjoy spending quality time with each other. I am very thankful for family!

I love my wife

I’ve enjoyed a special night with my beautiful wife, Cassidy. We ate some great “Shepherd’s Pie” that was amazing. We watched “Journey to the Center of the Earth” and I must say it was entertaining to watch.

Thanksgiving is coming next week and I must say that she is the greatest blessing in my life.

She is loving, gifted, gorgeous, sensitive, loyal, and patient. We’ve been married for 5 months and seven days! Marriage is awesome. I am tired of people being negative about marriage and saying things like,

“Well…it won’t always be this way, you’ll just get used to each other and argue like us…”
“So…are you guys tired of each other yet?”

Well…for me, I’ll never get over my wife! n87500060_30078722_6253

Attention…Blog experts!

I’m in the process of customizing my website (wordpress). You can check out the “MESS” here.

I purchased a host server (Go-daddy) to host wordpress. I have a domain and my wife, Cassidy has been working tirelessly to figure out how to make the switch.

Does anyone have some expertise on this? Thanks for your help!

This generation of students

It was a great night at Elevate, our student worship gathering at FaithBridge Church. Tonight I realized again that students desire to know God and live for Him with their whole heart. God has begun to reveal to me the importance of praising Him during difficult times. It has been my experience that through the difficult times I am able to see a clear picture of God’s grace. I’m amazed at the lessons I learn from watching 6th graders worship God. I’m blessed to see students weep over the salvation of their parents.

Students many times are viewed as “second class” or “not yet the church”, but I have the privilege to see students to minister to each other. My heart is for this generation to rise up and take their place as servants of Christ.

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12

P.S. I love this picture of some of the students!

Election Day Thoughts

Election day is finally here! It has been quite a election battle between McCain and Obama. I am glad that I voted for McCain early last week!

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I will respond to the results of the election tomorrow. God has been working on my heart on what Romans 13 talks about when it comes to Government and authority.

“Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”  Romans 13:1

Since governments have authority from God we are to obey them – unless, of course, they order us to do something in contradiction to God’s Word’s. Then, we are commanded to obey God before man (as in Acts 4:19).

I pray that believers face the upcoming days with a hope that is focused on the sovereignty of God. I will continue to pray for our nation and that Christians would actively show and share the truth of Jesus Christ.

America needs TRUE change. Hearts changed and healed through the power of Jesus Christ.

What are your thoughts?
