I’m back for posting… I hope…

I am writing this on a Word Document from my house, but won’t be able to post this until I get to work because we don’t have internet at the house. We are actually not likely to have internet at the house for a little while because we don’t want to spend the extra money right now.

It’s been pretty insane at work. We had several projects all due pretty much at once. But we have delivered most of them now and only have a couple more left. The pace yesterday was much more tolerable and I was able to start getting the office back in order, which is a good thing because it was becoming a nightmare. None of us had the time to organize it.

Rachel and I have been married a little over three weeks now and we are getting along marvelously… of course you know, I am sure anybody would expect as much at this point. We are really starting to get things in order around the house now. She has a much better eye for decorating than I ever thought about having of course so the house is looking much nicer now. She is quite pleased with the house, except that we have discovered a leak in the roof that we didn’t know about. It leaks in one of the bedrooms that is used for a storage room right now. And since I always kept the door closed I never noticed the leak before. But Rachel found our about it yesterday while it was raining. Hopefully it will be taken care of by the owner of the house since I am still renting it and have not bought it yet.

My Wedding

Well, it’s finally (and I mean finally) upon us. My wedding is in 6 days. I am so happy I can hardly contain it. For those of you not familar, we go to a small chuch (6 families), and during prayer time they had me come up to the front and they prayed for me. They prayed that I would be a good husband to Rachel, and a lot of other stuff that I can’t remember. Yes, I was a little bit emotional, but it was great having all the men in the church praying for me. It really is wonderful to be involved with a church family that cares for one another.

Today’s Scripture

With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Ephesians 4:2-3 (KJV)

Today’s Scripture

I have a widget on my dashboard (dashboard is a Mac OS 10.4 thing :-D) that displays a daily verse. I am going to try to post it here on the days when I get a chance. Today’s is:

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 5:1-2 (KJV)

Really Busy

Well, I’ve been running like I’m headed to a fire all the time. I’m told it only gets busier from here on out. Such is life I guess. I finally had time to update my website with new pictures, and I hope to have time to update the links section soon. I also need to work on my CovenantBeliever.com website sometime soon.

I have today off of work for Memorial Day (I’m actually writing this on Memorial Day, but won’t be able to post this until Tuesday). Rachel was here in Tennessee and brought a lot of stuff with here, so I spent the afternoon organizing a little bit. I’m sure she will want to implement her own organizational scheme after we are married, but for now I try to keep a small semblance of order.

Too Busy?

I’ve been very busy of late. Between trying to keep up with my work, planning a wedding and the various grasses and weeds of the spring/summer, not to mention my being allergic to almost any kind of pollen. It even seems that I’ve been too busy for God lately. I mean I haven’t done my morning Bible reading very consistently lately. It seems to me that if you are too busy for God, you are just simply too busy. But I don’t know how to slow down either. I was reminded yesterday at Church that the only way to have time for daily devotions is to make time for them. It’s amazing, Rachel and I used to both do our devotions in the morning and then we would email our thoughts about the passage to each other. I loved doing it, and yet I can’t seem to make time for it anymore.

I find it amazing that we can just get so busy we don’t’ have time for God, our creator. I mean, Jesus took time out of his busy schedule to come and die for us, surely we can sacrifice a little bit of time for daily devotions. So, when I get a little bit more consistent in my daily devotions, maybe I can then justify posting here more often… o but that requires time too, which is why I haven’t bee posting here very often in the first place.

Perception

I write this post on this fine Sunday morning from the living room of my fiancée’s house, or rather, her parents house. It will be only 34 more days now until we are to be married. Sometimes, I feel like just a kid who has no business getting married. It’s funny how our perspective changes about things.

Before my parents started homeschooling us children, I went to a private Christian school. I can remember thinking that those high-school kids were huge and so big, and I wanted to be as big as them. Life had to be just cool if you were that tall and big right? Well, here I am at 23 years old, and it doesn’t seem that old to me anymore. In fact, high-school kids seem horribly young and immature. O, and they are much shorter and smaller in general than I seem to recall. I don’t know what happened to them all. I certainly don’t remember growing up. I am not quite sure what happened.

Perception is a funny thing. Peter’s perception of Jesus sure changed by the time he got to the end of Luke Chapter 5. Jesus asked Peter to do something and Peter thought he knew more than Jesus. But to satisfy him, he took a couple of his partners, launched out and lowered the nets. His perception of Jesus changed as soon as he lowered the nets. Amazing isn’t it? Suddenly, Jesus took on a whole new look to Peter.

Our perception of things changes throughout our life. It is a part of life I don’t understand yet, but somehow, I just accept it.
