the big V its closer than you think

yes, you guessed it… Im talking about my new years resolution… to look good in a v neck shirt. I just needed to get some opinions… should i leave my scraggly chest hair or should it go away for the sake of looking good in a V neck… this is what I spend the morning thinking about.  BTW since the beginning of the year I am down at least 15 lbs to bellow 220… so only another 120 lbs before I look good in a v neck…

yeah I do that too… a little…

Hey so i was pondering something today as I was reading a blog… How often do I dig up things I did once… when I was a little kid or a friend of mine does just to have something in common with someone else… like if someone is talking about playing WoW, is my gut reation… “HEY I PLAYED THE ORIGINAL Warcraft… and starcraft for that mater.  I am a vintage gamer…” Or if someone says “I just bought a mac book pro” (you know who you are… beau) do I jump in… “I used a mac… before the iMac… In school… to play Oregon trail… I rocked it. Watch out for measles, snakebite, dysentery, typhoid and choler. Yeah Im a vintage Mac gamer”

I guess this is me just thinking about how sometime I should just shut my mouth and enjoy listing to someone else share about their win, new gadget or experience…

So beau… Tell me about your mac book

Cubby… tell me about taking pictures for Toby Mac

And everyone else tell me about you….

Life verse…

So Ive never really had a life verse(wow that is very christianese) that was my own, I have had ones I have stolen from other people and claimed their reasons as my own.  But I have had a recurring verse in my studies as of late… It is really sticking out to me because Im working toward beginning a life of ministry

1 Peter 5:2,3

Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.

I was reading a commentary on another verse and it started talking about shepherds and their jobs… they were dirty… they stayed with their flock… they protected them… Being a shepherd was not a glamorous job by any means… Is this my calling… to steal part “Hence, herding sheep was an independent and responsible job; indeed, in view of the threat of wild beasts and robbers, it could even be dangerous.”

the next part has stuck out even more… not because you must, but because you are willing…

Yes, I know I have been called into ministry… but I still am willing… and I have a choice in the mater… Am I still willing even when it gets hard to continue… yes…

as God wants us to be…

Wow… He wants us to be a willing participant in what he wants to do in peoples lives…

not pursing dishonest gain…

Sometimes I feel the need to be recognized for “who I am” and “what I do”… Hey John… just an FYI its not about you or what YOU get out of it…

but eager to serve…

For some reason I love to serve… My love language is acts of service… its what I do…

Not lording it over those entrusted to you…

How easy would it be to become dictatorial… Jesus washed his disciples feet, how much more can you lift someone else up

but being examples to the flock…

sometimes I miss this… I know I fail… but it doesn’t mean I don’t repent when I do…

who knows maybe I’ll just use John 3:16… then I dont even have to say it if anyone asks…

The Run…

So feel like I have been neglecting tumblr just because I can see it on my phone… and for that I am sorry… So went for a run/walk tonight… it felt good to get back out and do something I havent done in a while… a long while… I think Im going to start running at night again, I like it because one no one can see me, two its cooler out (not that I really have to worry about that in washington in the fall), three I dont want to get up any earlier than I have too, and I guess I want to get back into shape…

Well Ill let you know if this running thing sticks or if it becomes another hobby I pick up and then drop a week later… I need to get some tennish/running shoes… all my shoes have no tread… I guess I could run on the grass in my turf shoes… or cleats…

Humph… Im off to shower…

and thats how the day went…

Dear Diary…(I guess Journal to sound more man-ish… or dear Blogary…)

So my alarm didnt go off at 5… so I got up at 6 thanks to hannah waking me up… seriously thanks… my phone has issues and turned off… which isnt conducive to ringing… or alarming? me out of sleep… Anywhosul(I guess I cant use as many made up words while I type)… had a great drive into work… some traffic lights seemed timed for me… or at least there weren’t any other cars on the road… I do feel like I’m rambling… Im super stoked to get off work and go visit youth conference, and get to hangout with my kid… I know weird… I actually enjoy spending time with him… He is a hoot to play with, I dont know why but he likes being thrown in the air and then caught… Even when I bump his head on the ceiling, I swear i didnt know it was that close to me.  

ok well thats all for now… oh wait its not…

So i have made the realization that my hobby is learning hobbies… weird eh? Somy current one is firearms… I have 3 guns I want to buy… or are on my radar… 

Oh and they are all pistols since I just bought my 300 wby mag for hunting and I got my shotgun to cycle… makes me super happy…

So here is the first one i am going to buy as soon as the guy gets one in…

Sig P229 elite…

and then a 1911… not sure what brand or model… but Kimber maybe?

686 Pro I shot great with with… with both .38 spl and .357 mag

http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/654_774/products_id/411542551

I enjoy the mechanical and trying to understand the balistic side of firearms…

So those can all be belated birthday gifts… I guess maybe a Christmas gift… better yet… Halloween… its closer…

Thats all I got for now…

Oh Justin Timberlake

With a last name like Timberlake, I figured he would be a good country singer… but no ever time I happen to catch a tune from him it screams teenage girls, and old navy (I guess all that adds up to is Junior High, oh puberty how I dont miss you)… Dont know why I thought of Justin Timberlake this morning, but I just did… I guess its gonna be a long day…
