Wow, It's been way to long since I have posted. Having a baby pretty much takes all your spare time, but there is no way I would trade it. Actually I think I have forgotten how to post on here. Life has changed a lot in the past 3 months, but it's been great. Macie is growing like a weed and she gets more beautiful everyday. Alexas is a wonderful Mother and God has blessed us by allowing Alexas to take Macie to work with her. My new job is going well and my hours are the same as Alexas'. Now I just pray God helps me become a good father and a better husband, which I sure Alexas would tell you I struggle with sometimes. I can be to critical at times. Thanks for reading this if you did and God Bless you.

I'm sorry I haven't been commited lately to my blog. I'm still trying to get use to this new schedule and balance God, Family, Church, and work. We have a lot left to do before the baby gets here. We put the Crib together last week. It looks pretty good. We also started our birthing classes last Saturday and that was fun even if it did take all day. Things are going good for us right now, God has really blessed us. I realize just now in saying that, that I pray I could still thank God for his blessings if things weren't going well. Thats all for now. Thanks for stopping by I will update again soon.

Today was the firt day of my new job. Everything went very well. I couldn't believe how fast the day went by. God helped me through everything. Alexas and I were able to get up and eat breakfast together and have prayer and some bible time before I left. God has been very good to us and seems to be just pouring out blessing after blessing. My new boss is a great guy and I think we are going to get along really good. Tomorrow Creative Services is going out for lunch to welcome me to the department. It feels good to be involved in something were I are valued, and not just at my job, but at chuch and in everyday things. I feel God telling me that he loves me and I am valued and I have a purpose. That being said I feel my purpose is to serve God in the video ministry. Thats why God has blessed me with the skills and opportunities that I have. God just layed all this experience in my lap and then said now use it to serve me.

I now have afternoons off with Alexas and today was great, but please pray for me that I don't loose contact with people at chuch that I'm use to seeing in the mornings. I want to be able to continue my duties there but with out that communication with everyone face to face each day it could be hard.

Well, it's sure been a long time since I blogged. Sorry if you have been checking here without seeing anything new. To be honest I have been wanting to post an update on my job search for awhile but I had to keep stuff to myself until it was official. Speaking of which, IT'S OFFICIAL. Starting Oct. 2st I am the new Creative Services Producer. I would like to say thanks to everyone who has been praying for me the past few months. God is good.

Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

My prayer now is that God will give me the skills to do well at my new job. I'm completely confident that he will.

On another note. Our Baby is doing great. Alexas is six months now. She just got back form Mississippi visiting with her family, and becuase of the new job we will soon have the same schedule.

Alexas and I got to slip away a few weeks ago and take a break from the business of life. We went camping up in the mountains of NC where I grew up. My Mom, Dad, and Sister came with us. It was great, we didn't really do anything, but relax. I have a lot of great memories from that place, and we made a lot more on this short little trip. We took the dogs with us and let them run around. They were glad to be outside the gates that they confined to on a daily basis here at home. My Grandparents own about 50 or so acres, so there was plenty of room for them to run. We roasted marshmallows and made smores. We ate really good the entire time. Mom and Dad grilled steak on our first night. We took a lot of pictures to remember the trip and if the Lord allows us to do it again next year we will have an additional camper.

Also this guy needs a home. I found him about 2 weeks ago. We cant keep him we are already dog poor. But he needs a home. If you know anyone looking for a puppy let them know about him. I call him Wilbur but he answeres to pretty much anything.

Well It's been a while and you would think I would have more to say but my mind just feels drained by the end of the day and I can't really think. Today is September 11th 2006. Everyone who was old enough to realize what was going on 5 years ago knows exactly where they were. I was living in Sugar Grove, NC just out side of Boone. I was in my third year at ASU but had gotten sick a couple of weeks earlier and doctors were having a hard to finding out what my problem was. My Mom had been staying with me and trying to help me get better. That morning at around 8:30 or so my Dad called and said "a plane just flew into the World Trade Center". For the rest of the day we stayed on the couch watching the different news channels, flipping back and forth to see if one had any info the others didn't. And then we watched in disbelief as a second plane hit tower one. Then we knew for sure it was no accident. After 3 planes had hit 3 buildings that day I think everyone in the country was just waiting to see what came next. Was the entire country under attack? Like a lot of Universities ASU canceled most classes that day. I was too sick to go reguardless. We view life now as pre 9-11 and post 9-11. That day changed everything. Though we did come closer together as a country and at least for a time seemed more united, we did loose something. We went from being a worry free and careless nation to a paranoid, tense, and and open eyed nation, aware of the evil of the world outside and inside our borders.

Just a quick praise. Alexas and I went to the Doctor yesterday and found out that everything is normal with the baby and just as it should be at this point. Also I don't have Crohns. It's ulcerative colitis, which still isn't good but it's more manageable than crohns. God has blessed me with a lot this week, and I have been praying hard about this job position at work. I feel like God is really going to move on this for me. It's all in his hands. Please be in prayer for this for me. Basicly it's a promotion to a different department with much better hours.
