Not sure when I should start the countdown to the big day, but I think Lizzie started the day I proposed to her and we set the date of October 24th. If my math is correct, and it usually isn't it is about 1 month 20 days away... Wow, that is scary; no more bachelorhood for me.
That Lizzie and I to keep our sanity through all this planing; and that we keeping our eyes on the prize that is to honor God in all we do and in this show the love of God to all those whom we bless and bless us.
Thank you all who have been praying for us and assisting us with the planning, you have no idea how much this helps with our burden. When we set the date we knew we had our work cut out for us. Especially knowing that I would have to stop working and go back to school full time only weeks after our engagement making money tight. The Lord provides, we just have to get out of the way sometimes.

These last few weeks I have had a lot of time to get reconnected with the reason I went back to school six years ago. To be better equipped to teach, and train those who want to know their Bible more. I have also found time to get reconnected with my family. Lizzie and I will be baptizing our nephew this Saturday at Saint John's Cathedral, we have been really excited at this honor to serve my brother's family in this way as godparents for he and Lorena's second son Harvey.
You tell me who is the one having the most fun. I think it is me, he just seems to be getting annoyed at me.

Success! So I finally just now got my AT&T DSL service installed and working. This ends almost two months worth of pain and anger towards people half way across the country and even the world who explained to me constantly that my service would get fixed "as soon as possible." Well I guess ASAP to AT&T is about 25 days.
The whole thing started out the first week in March when I was looking to get high speed internet for my house. Comcast was not an option for me, not because they are bad but because of other problems that I'd not like to mention here. The only other real option I had was AT&T.
All was great, my connect date was set for friday the 13th. It didn't work.. so I called the 24 hour hotline that said they were closed and to call back during "regular business hours," or Monday! One problem led to another that led to another promise that led to another disappointment. Over a MONTH LATTER my internet is now working...
I have a rep from AT&T that is going to call me on Monday to see how I've liked the service so far. We'll see...

Two draw backs that I have found is that the keyboard is small, but I knew that going into it, the other is that the 8 gig set up is too small for serious use with xp home. I don't even have MS Office on it yet and I'm already down to under 500 megabytes. But the fact that it has a 4 in 1 card reader makes up for it cuz a 16 gig card is not too pricey.
As I continue to see issues I'll continue to post more info.

These days it seems like so many are afraid to say they believe in Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I can name quite a few closet Christians, former worship bands now mainstream, Pop singers who grew up Christian now lost in a drunken world... I'll stop there so that I can point out a positive. Lately, I feel the Lord showing me famous people who aren't ashamed.
Today, it was Albert Pujols, first baseman of the St. Louis Cardinals. A few weeks ago, it was the Jonas Brothers. Before that, it was Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers, Kirk Cameron again, Miley Cyrus, Brad Lidge a Phillies pitcher, Tony Dungy, David Tyree to name a few... It's exciting to say the least.
As dark as the world seems at times, I see beacons of light that the Lord is using.
Check out Albert Pujols in this weeks Sports Illustrated where he unapologetically tells the world what he is all about...
"We're in this era where people want to judge other people," Pujols says. "And that's so sad. But it's like I always say, 'Come and test me. Come and do whatever you want.' Because you know what? There is something more important to me - my relationship with Jesus Christ and caring about others. More than this baseball. This baseball is nothing to me."
Sports Illustrated asked, So how can you be a baseball hero in 2009? They answer their own question with this last quote, "You know how I want people to remember me?" Pujols asks. "I don't want to be remembered as the best baseball player ever. I want to be remembered as a great guy who loved the Lord, loved to serve the community and who gave back. That's the guy I want to be remembered as when I'm done wearing this uniform. That's from the bottom of my heart."
And that I say is the real deal.
I am happy to say I believe him, and glad to say I wouldn't mind him breaking Hank Aaron's record, the original and true 755.

I'll probably try to finish up tonight, and if I can’t get this 12" iBook to work it will just give me more of a reason to buy a 9" dell and put OSX on it.

For this lent season I'm going to be doing without a few things that I feel have been in excess in my life, and trying to commit myself to what I feel are the disciplines of my christian faith. Even while I say this I'm hoping I'm not biting off more than I can chew.
I'll try to keep updates here, on my Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace. Pick you drug.
