Dropping the Ball


Good Morning

Well, it is a beautiful day to wake up in a free republic. No matter what the weather or situation we find ourselves in most of us have much to be thankful for just having been blessed enough to have been born in this God blessed land. Almost any other country would have taken away much more from us than we have experienced here, however that is quickly changing and we must open the eyes of those around us.

I know we are all doing our part to educate our fellow citizens on what is at stake in America with socialism seeping into every crack in her foundation, but we must stand firm and support each other when we are weary. That is what you all have done for me and I hope in some small way we are able to return that support and friendship. I have failed in the recent past, not all do to my doing (darn computer!), but I have let life get to me to a degree. I am getting things in order though and wanted to thank you all. Have a blessed and warm day.

Blessed

Well, here I am, Christmas is gone for another year and the new year is fast approaching. Even though I had promised myself last January that I would take it easy this year I am looking back upon one of my busiest and exhausting years ever. I have to admit to having tapped every energy reserve I had and feel like a steam engine with no more steam. And, to top it all off I am about to start a new year with no reprieve in sight; it's going to be GREAT!

I had a little time off this Christmas week and I have had a chance to take inventory of all the blessings God has bestowed upon my family; not to mention all of the little miracles I saw pour out over the recent weeks. I realized that I have, once again, slipped in the proverbial pit of ungrateful, selfpitying that I find myself in from time to time.

I get so busy trying to survive in this dog eat dog world that I miserably fail at putting the whole world upon my weak, human shoulders instead of leaving it in God's almighty hands where it belongs. I lose sight of the provisions, miracles, and blessings he has granted me in my completely undeserving state of selfishness. I start to complain how hard my life is and before I know it God has to remind me of just how much I truly have.

I have a warm home, I have 2 great jobs in an economy where so many have none, I have my soul mate beside me, I have my beautiful children, and my merciful and generous God. I have everything and I am truly thankful that God sees past my struggles and loves me as a father loves his child.
