Relaxing week compared to last week being on call
and a GREAT birthday week! What can I say? I have great friends
and family. And on top of that I had a GREAT surprise that
I was not expecting at all. Now I feel bad, lol! I wasn't
expecting the visit and I had already made plans for my birthday
but we DID manage to wiggle some time together and get reacquainted!
That was so much fun.
buddy was in town also so we got to hang out and have a birthday
dinner which was really nice. We don't get to hang out as
much as we used to but we made good use of the time we had.
There also was a lot of work going on as I still have TONS
of paperwork to fill out. The loan for the house that I am
getting for my family was approved but there is so much more
paperwork to do. Can you tell doing paperwork is NOT the most
enjoyable thing to do?
that is weird because I *do* like writing Architectural and
Design documents for Storage Area Networking. It helps me
think out the problems and solutions and put them into a document
that everyone can use. I often tell my boss "It's my
job to write every piece of documentation so that if I ever
get hit by a bus, anyone off the street can sit in my chair
and do my job. I think that is the best way to look at your
career. Not so much about making $$$ or prestige or glory.
NO! It's about helping others and keeping the business running
the way it should.
only things I want to mention, besides my LOVE for God and
how far more blessed than I should be, is MotoGP starts at
the end of next month and Hayden is well, looking slow as
always. Stupid non-factory bikes! Also, the Bucs have the
#1 pick in the draft and I do NOT want them to pick up ANY
quarterbacks!! We need more beef of the offensive line, another
linebacker, definitely more power on the Dline and then we
can worry about QB.
I think that is about it for the week. Again, I feel far more
blessed than I deserve to be -- but I am not the final decision.
That is on God's shoulders! With these blessings He has bestowed
on me, it helps me help other people which I think in the
end, that is one of God's goals for mankind. Not to kill each
other, but to help your brothers and sisters in Christ.
a great week and CHEERS!

YAY! I am off call today I think at midnight. It's
definitely taken up a lot of my time. This week at work went
a little better. Even my bosses know I am getting beat up
a bit and piled on with a ton of questions about certain issues
that I haven't been involved in too deeply yet. To say my
plate is full is an understatement but I do like the job,
where I work and who I work for so right now I am happy.
Godly blessings I have received have enabled me to help my
family which I am really excited about. When God blesses you
so much it is your duty to pass those blessings on to others.
At least that is what I hear when I pray and what God whispers
over my shoulder. No matter how long I am on this earth I
am going to help others as much as I can.
with that said, the new house for my sister should close at
the end of this month which would be great! I am really happy
for them as they deserve it and a place to call their own
and I am sure they are tired of renting. Now they can have
a home of their own and improve it however they see fit! How
cool is that?
for me, I am just working hard. I still have not found a Church
here yet but I am reading my Bible every night and my daily
devotionals. I really do need to find a good Church to call
home but am really waiting to see where I might buy a home.
I suppose I have to sell my home in VA first so that all depends
on the person who is renting it now. He's been there since
I left VA so I suppose he likes it. It's a nice neighborhood
that is for sure.
guess that is about it for the week. Keep your mind on God
and He will bless you. When you have troubles, pray. When
you are blessed, PRAY! You should always be praying (ABP!!!).
I'll check in with you next week!

I am on call!
On call through next Friday so.... this is going
to be a short update. Still working on the house deal with
my sister so we'll see how that goes. Work was hectic this
week and I am hoping I adjust sooner. Working hard but you
know me, I don't have a head filter so I say what I am thinking
which more often than not makes people upset or just shake
their heads at me. I am not a mean person, just -- again --
no head filter.
you've been watching the news and what is going on. I cannot
wait until we get rid of Obama. All he has done is serve Islam
and foreigner and done nothing for Americans. He say he has
but he isn't. The bad part is people who are running against
him aren't much better either. It's the lesser of two evils
but that's how it goes. Be careful who you vote for!
Honestly, that is it. I've been praying a lot for my family,
for my friends and for people I don't even know. I know I
am blessed far more than I feel I deserve and I need to work
harder to keep Him pleased. That's what I want to focus my
life on. No what I want or need but what HE wants and needs
Have a great week!!

of things in the works...
Got a home deal going on right now -- though it's
not for me, it's for my family. I'm hoping this works out
so we can get them out of the place they are in now and a
place they can call home. It's just a mountain of paper work
to do and dealing with credit inquiries which hammer your
credit report (which is stupid, if you ask me!).
is fine right now. Lots of things going on there as well.
In fact I am supposed to be "on call" next week
so let's see how that goes. I just hope nothing BREAKS! There
are a lot of things I need to catch up with and well, it's
a high pressure environment so I just need to make sure that
I do the best job that I can do and leave the rest to God.
That is all you really can do. Lay your burdens at the feet
of Jesus and he will take care of you.
was in Sebring on Saturday working on that project I listed
above, did paperwork this weekend and now the SuperBowl is
on so I think I will watch that. So that's it for the rest
of the week. I know it's short but sweet. May the Lord bless
you, keeping your faith in Him.
