#1 - My birth mark is on my left foot, on the inside of my second toe.
(the one next to my BIG toe)
#2 - I almost crashed my mom's '67 Mustang when I was 16 years old. I took a turn too fast, crossed the lane of on coming traffic, over-corrected, jumped back accross both lanes and spun out on the right hand shoulder of the road against a telephone access box. Only putting a scratch right above the right-rear fender. Scared the pee out of my buddy riding along.
#3 - I'm right handed.
#4 - I have a gray spot of hair on the right side of my head about the size of a dime.
#5 - I graduated from Boulder City High School. Yes Blue & Gold are school colors.
#6 - I have a scar under my chin from my 1 and only drunk night....any one else?
#7 - I broke my right arm falling from a trampoline.
#8 - I saw President Bush, live & in person......from about 300 yards away.

Yesterday, My wife took my kids and met some friends at a public pool. In all the excitement she forgot the camera on the picnic table. Later in the day I called the pool and was told that it was turned in and that I could pick it at the office the next day.
On my lunch our I ran over to the pool and picked the camera up, safe and sound!! Looking through the memory card I found this picture of, who I could only believe, to be the honest guys who found the camera. OR, where they the hot guys that my wife and her friends were talking about when they left the pool?
Either way, I'm glad that I was able to retrieve my camera.....and all the other important pictures!!

Flight PlanTheme of the Week: Defining ChoicesMonday, July 23
Key Bible Verse: "Be just and fair to all," says the Lord. "Do what is right and good, for I am coming soon to rescue you. Blessed are those who are careful to do this" (Isaiah 56:1-2).
Bonus Reading: Psalm 25:1-5, 21
My tires screeched rounding a corner at the airport parking garage. Debbie and I were running late. I spotted an open parking space. Backing up to squeeze in, I forgot about the trailer hitch we'd just installed. It hit the car behind me. I jumped out to inspect a slightly damaged bumper.
What to do? The right thing was to leave a note—but taking the time to do so would make us miss our flight. Besides, the car was old, with dents and scratches. The damaged plastic probably would have no effect on the car's owner, I told myself; but missing our flight would have a big effect on us. "We've got to get to that plane!" I announced, and headed for the terminal.
But I hadn't gotten very far when a voice called inside me. "Is catching a plane so important," it asked, "that it's worth forfeiting God's favor?" I stopped in my tracks, turned to Debbie, and said, "I'm sorry, Honey. I just have to leave a note."
"I know," she replied without a hint of misgiving. So I wrote a note with my phone number, and left it on the damaged car.
We did miss our flight, but lined up a later one and enjoyed a leisurely lunch.
—Robert Morris in From Dream to Destiny
My Response: Am I attempting to ignore, or listening for, that inner voice?
That Bonus Reading is awesome... ENJOY!
The late Dr. S. M. Lockeridge, a pastor from San Diego, California said these words in a sermon in Detroit in 1976:
My King was born King. The Bible says He's a Seven Way King. He's the King of the Jews - that's an Ethnic King. He's the King of Israel - that's a National King. He's the King of righteousness. He's the King of the ages. He's the King of Heaven. He's the King of glory. He's the King of kings and He is the Lord of lords. Now that's my King.
Well, I wonder if you know Him. Do you know Him? Don't try to mislead me. Do you know my King? David said the Heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. My King is the only one of whom there are no means of measure that can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of the shore of His supplies. No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
He's enduringly strong. He's entirely sincere. He's eternally steadfast. He's immortally graceful. He's imperially powerful. He's impartially merciful. That's my King. He's God's Son. He's the sinner's saviour. He's the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He's honest. He's unique. He's unparalleled. He's unprecedented. He's supreme. He's pre-eminent. He's the grandest idea in literature. He's the highest personality in philosophy. He's the supreme problem in higher criticism. He's the fundamental doctrine of historic theology. He's the carnal necessity of spiritual religion. That's my King.
He's the miracle of the age. He's the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him. He's the only one able to supply all our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. He's available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He's the Almighty God who guides and keeps all his people. He heals the sick. He cleanses the lepers. He forgives sinners. He discharged debtors. He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent and He beautifies the meek. That's my King.
Do you know Him? Well, my King is a King of knowledge. He's the wellspring of wisdom. He's the doorway of deliverance. He's the pathway of peace. He's the roadway of righteousness. He's the highway of holiness. He's the gateway of glory. He's the master of the mighty. He's the captain of the conquerors. He's the head of the heroes. He's the leader of the legislatures. He's the overseer of the overcomers. He's the governor of governors. He's the prince of princes. He's the King of kings and He's the Lord of lords. That's my King.
His office is manifold. His promise is sure. His light is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you . . . but He's indescribable. That's my King. He's incomprehensible, He's invincible, and He is irresistible.
I'm coming to tell you this, that the heavens of heavens can't contain Him, let alone some man explain Him. You can't get Him out of your mind. You can't get Him off of your hands. You can't outlive Him and you can't live without Him. The Pharisees couldn't stand Him, but they found out they couldn't stop Him. Pilate couldn't find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldn't get their testimonies to agree about Him. Herod couldn't kill Him. Death couldn't handle Him and the grave couldn't hold Him. That's my King.
He always has been and He always will be. I'm talking about the fact that He had no predecessor and He'll have no successor. There's nobody before Him and there'll be nobody after Him. You can't impeach Him and He's not going to resign. That's my King! That's my King! Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Well, all the power belongs to my King. We're around here talking about black power and white power and green power, but in the end all that matters is God's power.
Thine is the power. Yeah. And the glory. We try to get prestige and honor and glory for ourselves, but the glory is all His. Yes. Thine is the Kingdom and the power and glory, forever and ever and ever and ever. How long is that? Forever and ever and ever and ever. . . And when you get through with all of the ever's, then . . .Amen!
That's MY King
Do You Know Him?

May I please have a...Grande Carmel Green Tea Latte', Thank you!
I have to admit that it does take alot of energy to think of something to write. I know, I know....just write about what's going on in my life, blah blah blah...My life isn't too exciting.
-5:00 AM: Wake up - find something to eat for b-fast & lunch w/o waking family.
-5:15 Drive to work.
-5:50 Arrive at work and log into phone & computer.
-6:00 take first of 50 phone calls for they day from a person who works w/ computers, but doesn't know how to operate one.....(OK I'll stop grumbling).
-11:00 Lunch. (PB&J at my desk)
-12:00 PM Return to the phones.
-5:00 Leave work.
-5:45 Return home.
-5:45 - 10:00 play w/ kids, love on the wife, talk to neighbors.
-10:00 Go to bed.
I know, that that doesn't sound very exciting, but it was a good day.
In retrospect, that means 'looking back on the day', God has blessed me immensely. I have a wonderful family, beautiful wife, good friends, a job & live in America. I would still be as blessed if I lived in another country, but I like America. :o)
In the future I will try to be alittle more wordy for blogging purposes & less into videos, but don't get mad at me if 1 slips in every once in awhile.
By the way, this is a test to see if anyone reads this at all, I may just go back to videos. No pressure, but it's all up to the readers, that's you, if I keep typing or not.
