Alrighty, there hasn’t been much postage recently because I’m in the process of setting up a new blog at a new url. I’ll let you know when everything is ready and set up…

Note to those who read the blog via RSS: I don’t think this post will be viewable in a feedreader as I messed up the feed that I had going in an attempt to transfer my feed over to the new domain.

Desiring God Posts On Prayer

The Desiring God blog has put up four helpful posts on prayer and the new year over the past few days, here they are:

Update: Another post on prayer from the DG blog – A List of Everything they Prayed for in the New Testament.

“When a man (or woman) professes atheism, he immediately disqualifies himself to speak as a representative of science because his premise is a violation of the fundamental rule of science–“nothing created everything.””

A Photostory of My Childhood Jobs

When I was a child, times were hard, money was sparse, and I had lots of bills to pay. Those factors combined to create the “perfect storm.” Because I needed money I worked many different jobs, just tryin’ to make ends meet. Below are a few of my favorite times of employment.

The first was fencing, and while I enjoyed it, it was awful dangerous. That combined with low pay caused me to leave.

Just when I decided I couldn’t make a life time career out of fencing I heard that Barry had retired and the Lions were looking for a replacement. So I played running back for Detroit for a season.

Though I led the NFC in rushing yards and touchdowns, I just didn’t find the personal satisfaction in football that I had when fencing. Noting that Deon Sanders and Bo Jackson played two sports, I figured I would try that out as well. After working out a good contract, I finally signed with the Mets.

Realizing I only had a few years left of being in my prime, I left sports to pursue a life long dream of mine…  putting the muscles I had built up over the years to good use, I became a strong man in a traveling circus.

After lifting many cars in the circus, I began to have a growing interest in how they were put together. This led to a temporary position at an auto repair shop where I worked on cars, bikes, and trikes.

Again feeling discontented, I sought out a position with more personal interaction (I was tired of staring at the bottom of automobiles – they weren’t as complex as I had originally thought they were). Since I had acquired my pilots license while playing for the Lions, I thought commanding a small aircraft would be a pleasurable pursuit. I took a job as a chauffeur for a family residing in Ohio. Much to my surprise, I ended up driving my little sisters around in their private jet.

This was a good choice though, since to this day it is still my main occupation.

Last Day of the Last Semester

Today is the last day of my last semester of junior college. I just finished up my last final (it was in science)!

Woo hoo, free at last… well, at least until January, then it is back to the old grind stone – except instead of being at a junior college, I’ll be at an un-junior college… a senior college? :)

The Synopsis:

A young woman is locked in the bathroom of an abortion clinic after her aborted baby was born alive.

A film about decisions, their effects and the echos they leave behind. Based on the shocking World Net Daily article by Ron Strom, on victim’s testimonies, and real 911 calls about one of the most controversial subjects of our time, “22weeks” achieves to confront both sides of the spectrum and their perspective to the on going question: “what would you do?”


As a child I enjoyed interacting with animals in many different ways, this is an attempt to chronicle some of those interactions through photographs.

I would frequently tame bears.

I liked riding horses…

a lot.

I loved dogs…

so much so that I wanted to be one.

I enjoyed riding camels.

And to top it all off, I had a strange affection for large rats.

A Defining Pursuit

By pursuing worthless things one becomes worthless (Jeremiah 2:5). By pursuing false things one becomes false (2 Kings 17:15).

What one pursues defines what one will become.

“There are no detailed Darwinian accounts for the evolution of any fundamental biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations. It is remarkable that Darwinism is accepted as a satisfactory explanation for such a vast subject—evolution—with so little rigorous examination of how well its basic theses work in illuminating specific instances of biological adaptation or diversity.”

– Molecular biologist James Shapiro, “In the Details…What?” National Review, 19 September 1996, pp. 62–65.

C.S. Lewis On Giving

“I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusement, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our giving does not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say it is too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot because our commitment to giving excludes them.”

– C.S. Lewis

Jesus Makes Heaven Heaven

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).

Acts 7:55 tells us that Jesus is the unending pleasure at God’s right hand. The greatest source of joy in heaven is Jesus.
