I'm going to be a daddy...
That is all!
See Laura's blog
for more info! =D
Well, since I haven't really updated on what's been going on with us
, I figured I'd do a quick update.
The work at Ardmore is going extrememly well! We just finished a gospel meeting, and it could not have gone any better! We had different speakers each night, and all of the men did a terrific job! I want to thank Jim and Jordan Lovell, Eric Belcher, Mark Nave, Lance Taylor, Brett Westbrook, and Caleb George for the hard work they put in preparing for the meeting. You could really tell each of these fine men put a lot of thought into their sermons.
Laura and I feel like we're getting closer to the members every day. Starting a new work, sometimes it's a little difficult to really get in and know people outside of church. This Saturday we're going white water rafting with several members. Both Laura and I are wanting to have more interaction with the congregation other than services. Does anyone else have problems with this? What do you do to fix it?
Anyways, I've started my career. As some of you know, I took a summer internship at Boeing in Huntsville, AL. I have been informed that they are extending my internship until after I graduate, then they are converting me to a full hire.
Speaking of graduation, I plan on graduating next Spring. After that, I plan on taking my GMAT and enrolling in grad school at UNA or UAH, haven't decided where yet.
Laura and I have been married for over 6 months now. I know that's not a lot, but every day has been a blessing! Our little puppy is such a little squirt. Apparently he doesn't understand the concept of sleeping in and wants to be up at 7:30 to play.
Oh well! Hope everyone is doing well!
Well, here I am at work... barely able to keep my eyes open!
Why do you ask? Because I had the wonderful idea to go see the new Batman movie at midnight. Still asking why? I'm not sure! Maybe it was just all the hype around the movie that got me so excited I felt as if I "had to" go see this.
Now don't get me wrong, it was an excellent movie! Ledger's Joker was amazing! Simply amazing! This is one of the few movies that I am actually planning on going to see AGAIN in the theatres (mind you, not at midnight again)! It's that good!
But as the title to my post suggests, I'm sitting here at work thinking, "What in the world were you doing. Why would you do this? You knew you had to work, so why?"
Here's hoping I don't fall asleep on the way home this afternoon!
Since I've been told many times to update, I guess I'll finally bite the bullet and do it!
It's been crazy since I last updated. I think I'll have a quick list of the things that have happened.
1) Got married! Obviously this has been awesome and I love my wife so much!
2) Got a preaching job! I'm preaching at Ardmore church of Christ and working with brother Hobo (Douglas) Eubanks. This has been such a blessing to get to work with a good group of Christians who are so encouraging to both Laura and I!
3) Almost graduated! I've got 3 more semesters to go. I could have graduated in the fall, but a class I needed was only being offered on Wednesday night this past semester. Needless to say, I chose to go to church instead. This pushed me back graduating, but I think I made the right choice.
Those are the major announcements in my life. And since it's been a while since I've posted, let's go over some humorous stuff as well as a soap box issue of mine.
Ah, the joys of apartment living. Our new neighbors apparently hate the alarm clocks as much as Laura and I do. However, Laura and I have the courtesy of cutting ours off instead of letting it go off for hours on end. Our neighbors do not have this level of common decency. Now, those of you who know me know that I can sleep through almost anything! This morning however, I was woken up by our neighbors alarm clock. Laura was already woken up and was wondering if it would be rude to hit the wall. I said it would and that they would eventually shut it off. After about 10 minutes, they still had not. Laura banged on the wall lightly to try and wake them up. After a few minutes had passed and that annoying bleeping was still going on, I proceeded to BANG on the wall! What followed was very funny. We heard a loud thump and then the alarm cut off. I'm assuming from the rather large thud we heard, I had scared the person have to death and they fell out of bed. Maybe next time they'll think twice before messing with me in the morning at 5:30 AM!
The world is definately going down hill. While this should come to no surprise to us as Christians, it is still very sad to see. Laura and I were discussing the other day various issues that we or our children will have to deal with eventually.
The issue I want to talk about is homosexuality. I am afraid that we (or our children) will be faced with this sin and forced to take a stand against. The thing that scares me the most is the unwillingness to do so. Are we afraid of being labeled a biggot? Would we rather just stand by and not cause any problems?
I'm not advocating hate or hate crimes, but rather a stand against homosexuality. Romans 2 is not hard to understand. God intended husband and wife. He created Adam and Eve in the beginning. Under the Old Law, homosexuals were to be killed. That's how God feels about homosexuality.
As a follower of God, are we willing to take a stand for His word?
Anyways, enough pet peeves. Hope everyone is doing well! Come visit us at Ardmore or at Camelot any time you get a chance! Peace!
So yeah, I'm getting married today! Laura and I are both so excited!
I'll see all of you on the flip side!
