    Tears in Rain

    Psalm 45:1

    "My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer."

    Galatians 2:20

    I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Five Things I'm Thankful For

    My, my! Look at the time past and tell me you’re not amazed!

    Forgive the lack of diligence to keep you up-to-date but quite frankly not much has happened for the last 4 weeks… Sheesh! I shutter to think it’s been that long already.

    Well, to get to some more interesting aspects of life, its Thanksgiving time! And I’d like to take a moment to list five things I’m thankful for:

    5: Well, without life it would be quite impossible to be thankful at all so I am thankful for life but (to be more direct) I’m thankful for the creator who gave me lungs to sing and hands to work for the His Glory! God my Father.

    4: His Son Jesus Christ who died and rose again, who conquered death and vanquished sin for our eternity in heaven.

    3: My family: My mother and father who’s wisdom and council ever strengthens me; my brothers who’s diverse talents and abilities never cease to amaze, impress, and teach me; my little sister who has brought great joy and imagination to my life who’s famine perspective sheds new light of what it takes to be good gentlemen and one day a good husband and father.

    2: My friends: without friendship and companions to share life and joy; to fellowship and serve one another; to laugh and cry, win and loose, brake down and build up—life would be rather difficult and dull.

    1: My God given talents and the many, many teachers, councilors, and elders who have (by God’s grace) raised me up and brought be to a high place of understanding and preparedness for the future world to come.

    Hope you all have many things to be thankful and if you have never made a list I would encourage you to as you will find that blessings come in all shapes and sizes.

    Count your many blessings

    Name them one by one

    Count your many blessings

    See what God has done!

    God bless everyone and happy Thanksgiving!

    Oakley Audio Update!

    -----Hey ya’ll!!! We’re back and still kicking! We hope you enjoyed our audio update! We know we have a lot of fun putting it together for you and look forward to doing it again soon!!!

    -----Many of you may know that Ryan and I spent the week in San Antonio for the Independent Christian Film Festival and Academy. I got a whole lot of good theology, technique, and technological benefits out of the entire thing and best of all got to spend some time, in person, with our very good friend Darby. It was indeed the best of times from watching film entrees to creeping people out with magic tricks to listening to sermon after next (thanks for doing that btw ;) I hope you got as much out of it as I did) but most of all we got to hang out and enjoy the time well spent. Funny story, while Ryan, Darby, and I were waiting by the escalator for no apparent reason Ryan decided to come up to some stranger and do a magic trick for him and he stuck around us since which made the week even better so Josiah if you get a chance to read this, it was a pleasure bumping into you ;). So for the rest of festival it was Ryan, Darby, Josiah, and myself and an abundant sack of wonderful memories to bring home. I think the best time we had was getting to listen to Ray Comfort and play a couple of rounds of Master/slave which I happen to be no good at… But I’m determined to beat you next time Darby! So watch out ;) At any rate, I wouldn’t have traded that week for any other week in the world! Thanks for making it extra special.

    Well, we’re home now! Hope to hear from those of you who still blog soon!

    Your Fun-loving, wild, and crazy friend
