Singing again...

Last week I woke up singing the song "Overcome" that the crew from the 5th Service did on there album..."we will overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony"! First off Susan no comments on me singing...I know it makes people ill but God likes it!

Today I woke up singing the "Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty"...I have to say I love times like this!

Here It Begins...

Here is the 650 Special...it will get bobbed with some crazy forward looking apes...however it will be the last one to get fixed up and running!

And the SR500...this bad boy will be Ratted out and LOUD!

The SR is what I will start on first. Still gathering ideas about what I will do. However the first thing I get to do is rebuild the engine...and yes I am truly excited for this process! Have most of the parts found online all i need to do is order and get to work on them!

Yes they look torn apart right now...and thats the way I want them!

Here comes the Ratting and the Bobbing

I am bad at surprises...

I really stink when it comes to christmas and birthdays ask my wife...I always buy the gift and then give it a day later cause I hate lying and holding things back...so here is the answer to the question I poised yesterday!

I got blessed with two...not one but two motorcycles yesterday!

One will be bobbed and the other will be chopped! I am so stinking excited! As I get time I will post pics...but for now just be blessed with me!

Kelly is making BLTs tonight for dinner and apparently needed to run to the store (didn't even know she left the house) till this little fella and all his friends in the house started chirping. Yep the bacon started burning and set off the fire alarms.

I can honestly say we are safe if we ever have a fire there is no way I could sleep threw that barrage of noise!

and you ask how was the bacon...perfect not even burnt...

Interesting day so far...

Took the boys to the park before lunch to hang out and have some fun...
Connor climbing up to the slide...

Colton climbing the rock wall...yeah I know this park has a little rock wall for the kids...Amazing!

Then I got to thinking about how much fun we where having and how much I missed my hunting buddy Sandie...she was a ton of fun to have around. The boys loved her and Chayse always played with her. She was one of the best dogs I have know when it came to "being around kids".

Then I get a call from a young person that has had a tragedy and I mean a big one happen a few months ago...watching the person you care about die. As my two boys played in the park we talked on the phone about how much this person is missed and how a birthday of the person who is still alive is not much to celebrate...and we cried together!

In the next few days we will sit down and talk some more...and I am happy for that...and I thank God that I do not have to pull from my wisdom but from His.

I know that this could be a downer of a post but I don't want it to be that way. I realized on the bike ride home with the boys how unable I was to describe how thankful I am of what God has blessed me with. First and foremost the empty cross...i am redeemed because of Jesus! Next my wife, children, and family (yes even the in-laws). Then my friends and leaders who have spoken into my life over the years. After that my job and my church they are one in the same i guess...because I love what I do!

Funny how you can go from playing to crying to overwhelmingly thankful in the matter of an hour!

To cool

Chayse is my daughter (one and only daughter) she really loves people and always wants to help...sometimes to a fault. However this morning was different, Grandma (my mom) who lives with us comes up stairs and is really not looking good because of the pain she has in her leg. Chayse knows that Grandma had surgery a few weeks ago to get rid of the pain. However there has been some residual effects of the surgery (she goes to the Dr. tomorrow....thank God) which they say are normal and should pass.

Chayse being moved with compassion leans over and says "lets go pray for Grandma"! Of which I try to compose myself and not break into tears and reply "okay, get up and go pray for her". She does...Grandma cries...Grandpa cries...and yes I cry!

I love my little girls heart...she is so loving and she gets it from one place her Father (and no not me). We see all thru the word of God where Jesus was moved with compassion for someone in pain or trouble.

I believe that little girl has great faith...and I am so happy at how God has shown her his love for her...that she would reach out to those around her.

First day of school

The skooch is off to her first day of school for the year...my guess is we will ride the bike.

I doubt we will do any camping on the way there but who knows. I have one big thought for the day...man it is fun to watch people grow up!
