Blowing the Dust Off

Well, I thought I would blow the dust off this. A lot has happened since the last time I have blogged. I need to check the last date I actually did blog. I started blogging before Bryson was born and was kinda good at it. I am scared to look back at my old blogs as I might get depressed as those were some dark days.

I would say I am in a much better place than then. We have had another child named Brentyn and he is full of life and as fiery as his hair. The other big thing in our life is that we moved to a house farther  south of Nashville. We wanted something more affordable and had room for our boys to play.

Well, again I am just blowing the dust off here. Make sure to save this blog where ever you can so you can come back from time to time.

Plant Stronger

Several years ago I was sitting in a Sunday school class when my teacher at the time for some reason made the Comment " I hate going to peoples homes and seeing wedding pics and they are half the size they are now. Give me a break and wake up people and take that reminder down that you are not that skinny or young". at the time I resembled that remark but today I can say thanks to our plant based life Nickie and I weigh less than when we first met each other and I actually weigh what I weighed at the beginning of my Freshman Year at Liberty University. So to that man who made that comment. "How do you like me now".

Just Listen

This topic has been rolling around in my head for sometime now. I didn't know why at first but then it hit me. This is something that goes for all ages. I have been quite frustrated lately because it just doesn't feel like my boys are always listening. Doesn't matter how or what I say they just seem to do their own thing. Then it finally hit that this is their sin nature. It'ts born into us. We have to fight it day by day. I guess thats why He gives us the grace that He does. He knows we will always fall short.

Used Can't Be Good

All my life I have had this mentality that used was no good. So I would go without things forever till I could get the funds to buy it new but did I stop there? No, I didn't. Not only did I want new but it had to be the best. Hence I have shortened my life in a sense and here's how.

I would use this excuse of go big or go home. Well I never got anywhere. This mentality runs through all my decision making in more ways than one. If I didn't feel I could commit all the way I just didn't do it and that is one of reasons I am probably behind everyone all the time. One good example is that I have always wanted my own sounds system. Well doubt you have looked up the price one quality speaker box but they rage from 1,000 to 6,000 a piece and you need several of them to do a show. Then on top of that you need all the cabling, mics, mic stands, power cords, amps if the speakers are not self powered , distro , consoles and the list goes on.

I never really came to the conclusion till about a year ago when I started to hang out with a certain group of wheelers and dealers. Then on top of that I got hooked on American Pickers. Now I find myself constantly looking at free to cheap stuff on Craigslist, ebay, and dumpsters.

So now hopefully I can start to move on to bigger and better things thanks to some good friends and American Pickers.

Happy Pickin
