A Wonderful beginning to a New Year

The Picture above is the sunset from this evening.  So beautiful.  It reminds me that there is always an  ending before a beginning.  The Lord showed me that he wasn't done yet.  I explained to The Lord that I was content and happy with where I was in my life.  He told me that I had a choice to make.  I can either be content or be overwhelmed because he is not done yet.  Don't be content.  God has so much more in store for us.  BE OVERWHELMED!!!

Last week of 2015

What a crazy year it has been.  So many things have changed this year.  I did add my live weather station to my blog.   You can see it just to the right of this post.  My brother gave the weather station to me for an early Christmas present.  I have wanted one of these for years.  This being the last week of the year, I am looking forward to what is in store for my family.  Not just the crazy weather we have been having but everything else that The Lord has in store for us.  I can honestly look back to this past year and see how The Lord has moved in everything.  We sometimes put ourselves in the circumstances that we are in but He always steps in.  God is Good all the time.  Have a blessed new year.

Fall Back

  It has been over a year since my last posting.  I know I should update this more often but at least now, one can tell how quickly things change.  This year has been full of changes.  We go from being so far in debt that we could almost not breath to now being completely out of debt.  All within the same year.  God does move in "suddenly's".  I go from one job at the beginning of the year and end up working at two other places within the year.  I go today for a job interview for a new job.  The Lord just keeps providing.  And this year, I loose my Mother.  For someone who doesn't care to much for change, it sure has this year.
  We have moved into our new home and things are just wonderful.  It's nothing that we have done to make it wonderful.  It's the Move of The Lord.  I have noticed that when we go through so much, that when it is all over and the dust settles,  I can look back and see what The Lord has brought us through and just look at amazement.  There has been so much talk about the world ending and bad times and stuff, but I am not worried or concerned about the timing.  I just need to make sure that as far as Me and My Household, we will serve The Lord.  His timing is not our timing.  I also need to make sure that I share The Love of The Lord with everyone and hopefully lead many to Christ so that they too can experience HIM.

This year was our first Family vacation ever to actually go somewhere together and enjoy things together.  I was totally awesome.  We did so many things together.  We went to the beach, para sailed and was also able to stop for the last couple of days on our way home and spend time with cousins that I haven't seen in many years.  These are memories that our family made together and my children will never forget.  I am so thankful to the Lord for the time he has given us together.

Our own little Selfie.  My wife and I at work.  Yes, we both have the joy of working together.  It is such a joy to be with my wife at work.  It is easy for us to work together but hard for us to be working both so many hours.   We are in the process of being debt free.  The plan is within 2 years.  As we both work on this, we have figured out that it will take both of us working.  My sweet wife, who was used to being at home with our kids for so many years is now working more hours than me most of the time.  I can't wait until we meet this goal so that we can make plans for her to be able to be back at home again.  She is such a true blessing to me.

As I have already made a Facebook post, I wanted to take this short time to elaborate on some things.  Monday, November 11th is Veteran's Day.  Veterans Day always means a lot to me each year.  It reminds me not only of Those who have served our Country in the past but those who currently serve.  It reminds me of Those who I have had the privilege to serve with as well.  I am a Vet!
  There have been times when I would go into a store or some place and they would notice that I am a veteran.  You see, in the State of Arkansas, if you are a Veteran, it is noted on your driver's license.  Folks would notice that in some way and thank me for my service.  I would feel a little awkward and tell them thanks.  I remember once while I was still in the U.S. Navy, had come home on leave and had attended a function at the local school here in town where I had graduated from.  I was in uniform that evening for some reason that I can't remember and after arriving there, I received a standing ovation.  I was embarrassed but at the same time very proud to be serving.
  I guess what I am trying to say is to all Veterans, You should be proud when someone thanks you for your service.  Receive what rightfully belongs to you.  A Great Big Thank You!!  May God Bless you and your family.

As you notice the videos that I have posted below are in regards to the Bay Public school system that are from Region 8 News.  It all seems like things are all over now but that is far from the truth.  As I have mentioned before, It's not about just this issue.  It's about our school, our kids, our teachers.  It seems that it has been determined that there are funds available but now we need to make sure these funds are available for what they belong for.  Our classrooms! The sad part is, what checks and balances do we now have in place to make sure that the needed supplies are made available?  That the money is actually being used for the things that are needed in our classrooms? It's sad when you hear a Teacher tell you that they have been told that they are not to put in any requests for supplies because it will not be approved but we don't want to be a name dropper in fear for the teacher getting retribution from the administration.
