June 2011

This month has flown by! Can’t believe it! I have had fun though. Been pretty busy with the wedding details and my new job, but am not complaining at all.
I must apologize for not posting on here more. However, like I have previously stated – I enjoy Twitter a whole bunch and you can follow me there for my daily thoughts and views that sometimes come wildly to me. Sammm1777 is where u can Follow me.

I just got this iPad as a gift from my beautiful Heather. Thanks baby! I have to say, I opened it up 3 hours ago & haven’t put it down yet…I’m so addicted. I’m actually posting this using my wordpress app on my iPad, using a digital keyboard no less. Awesome!!!

So, I will leave this post for now and with it I say that I’m a very happy man right now in my life and can never thank God enough for everything!!!

Many Blessings upon you and yours.

Job Hunting

It’s going well.  I have lots of opportunities opening up, but haven’t got the right offer yet.  Praying hard and waiting in great expectation, knowing that God will bless me with that ‘right’ job.

Spirits are high and I’m really enjoying this time of the season that I haven’t enjoyed in a few years due to my recent ‘issues’ in the past couple years. I just laugh about it now, but glad to see that my heart is mending and there is someone so very special that is making this happen for me.  Bitterness is so in my past and love is here and now and healthy again. PTL!!

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!

life after death

I was reading a news feed just now about an owner of a big clothing line that was killed in a car crash early this am driving his Ferrari.  It saddened me because I was thinking about him and how he had all the money in the world and had hopes and dreams and other aspirations and many long years to still live. 

I then thought about what really counts in life.  Is it money, riches, fame, power that we all seek?  In a recession time that we’re in, people losing their jobs and even their minds during this tough time.  What really matters/counts?  Is it having a good job?  Is it avoiding unemployment?  Is it paying your bills and having a nice 3 months of savings put away for a rainy day?  What is it that matters/counts?  Is it having a happy love life, a healthy and happy marriage?  Being filled up with what this world has to offer?  Why is it that I find myself wanting the best of every world??  Is it my humanity that makes me feel this way?  That I urge to be comfortable in every facet of my life?  Life perplexes me because I think about life, how we’re here on earth for such a short time compared to the breadth of history.  I look in the mirror and see an older me.  I realize that life is short.  I begin to think about what do I want to accomplish in life before I die. 

I lye awake at night thinking more and more these days.  I find myself having sleep apnea because of my many thoughts.  I guess I am very introspective today and need to write my feelings and thoughts down as the story I read really hit my heart. 

I wonder when my time is up and where I will be when that happens.  Life is so finite.  To be so bold and arrogant as to not think of there being any higher power outside of man is ridiculous in my humble opinion.  To think that something exploded into such beauty is preposterous. 

To know that there is a living God and a son that paid the ultimate price for ME & YOU gives me hope that there is life after death.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

daily bread

I read this verse this morning in my devotional in Proverbs 30 and I just really desire this for my life.

7″Two things I ask of you, O LORD;
       do not refuse me before I die:

 8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
       give me neither poverty nor riches,
       but give me only my daily bread.

I really desire for verse 8 in my life.  Keep lies and falsities FAR from me.  No one wants people that are going to lie to them, do they?  I surely don’t!  I expect good from people as they should expect the same in return from me.  False and fake people is something else I don’t like nor want in my life.  I have lived too long to see many people come and go in my life that are like this—be banished!

Just as important is the next line.  For me this is so true.  Lord, I don’t want to be too rich and I don’t want to have to look and be worried about my next meal either.  But please Father, give me my daily bread.  For me, I am rich compared to most of the world, but in my view, I’m middle-class, blessed with a great job at a great company.   I don’t desire to be grossly wealthy, because I might feel like I can do it all on my own or get prideful.  Too many things bad could happen, I feel, if I was very wealthy.  So, Lord, I am very content and happy with what you give me and what I have today, Thank YOU LORD!!

Have a Blessed Day!
