Blast from the past...

I recently found several 3.5 inch "floppy" disks with various journal entries of my own; i plan on entering them into this blog with their original date of writing, that will be fun.

Meanwhile, to-day, the Red Wings lost to the Blackhawks, I have almost all my exams graded and ready to enter into the 'book', and me and my bride have talked quite a bit on the phone a bunch.
Got a good recipe to-day for marinara from Everyday Italian.
There is tons of snow on the ground.
Michigan State @ Purdue at 9 tonight!

Wednesday 16 February is the start of season 22 of Survivor (Redemption Island)!!!!! Just heard Jeff tell me that during Kansas/Texas.

Snow, snow, snow...

Got about a half-foot overnight and its' been snowing all day to-day, tiny flakes gently falling but lots ofem!!! Can't even see across the street. The Ram's covered and i think i need to dig out to get some stuff done at work...

and the word of the day is ...

But almighty God isss teaching uss this, yessss, preciousss, He issss...
The copy machine, for instance, that won't behave like it is designed to behave so that I have to stand over it, collect the pages vomited forth, arrange them in order, AND STAPLE THEM, (for crying out loud.)
The children learning algebra, as another example, ... enough said.
But over and over, I know He wants me to do better, to be kinder, to love more the folks He sends my way. BUT WHY IS IT SO HARD SOMETIMES?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Thank you, Lord, for loving me so much that you don't want me to stay stuck, that you want others to be truly blest by me and through me...oh Lord let me learn, ... change my heart oh God, make it ever true...
Glory, glory, glory.

...and my beloved loves me

There are a zillion reasons why I am in love with my wife, my soul-mate, my best friend.

One reason is how adorable she sounds at six in the morning curled up on our futon, the fire long gone cool,  tucked in her own warmth under several comforters with Sierra curled at her feet.

Nothing you can do that cant be done
Nothing you can sing that cant be sung

Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy

B-A Bay, B-E Bee, B-I Bicky By B-O Bo
Bicky By Bo B-U Bu Bicky By Bo Bu.
Curly's a dope.

Super Sunday

Another beautiful morning on wildcard weekend, thank you, almighty God!
Took a drive this morning to Benzonia and visited the Shop n Save and then the McDonalds. Took the scenic route home, made a few stops to pray and talk to my sweety. The roads were slick, the scenery gorgeous.
Dear Father in heaven, may your love shine through me all this week, wherever I am

NFL Playoff Time

Playoffs start today and could you ask for a better opening half of an opening game?!? Seahawks hanging tough with the Saints for 27 minutes...
And now up by 11 in the 3rd!?!

And 34-30 with 9 minutes left! (but the Saints are 13-3 on the road in the last two years.)
What a run by Lynch?!?! 41-30 with just over three minutes left...upset in the making.

I love you, Monica.
Another gorgeous morning from the creative mind of our loving God; the foot of lake-effect snow is shining with sunlight and crying "come play in me!!!!"
Thank you, LORD, for this day, thank you for my eyes that see your wonders...give me your wisdom: true Eyes-that-see.

I'd not make a living betting

I'm already 29 points off on my prediction for tonight's Sugar Bowl ... better see what the Wings are doing ...1-1 after 1 ... k. ... USA prime credit, tell peggy your problem ... if i drink 5 Hour Energy in the morning, will I be all geeked up like the geek on the commercial: Let's do this!?
The tab says (1 unread) in my Yahoo! Mail but for the life of me I can't find one unread message.
Blest day at work to-day; God the Father loves His children so very much I can see... biggest loser challenge should be starting up soon and dammitall, i'm going to win it this time, no monkey business, see?!


Thank you, Father, for giving me so much.
Thank you for family and friends, for food and shelter, for income and vehicles.
Thank you for loving me.
Thank you for forgiving my sin.
Thank you for teaching me how not to sin.
Thank you for your Church.
Thank you especially for my bride Monica, and for all we were able to do this past CHRISTmas.
You know my plans for the new year, you know the areas of my life where I need to do better: I entrust it all to You.
You are my strength when I am weak, you are the treasure that I seek, you all my All in All.
