well I got mad.

I know when debating with someone, composure is key, especially when it is religious. Well I lost my cool once while talking to this guy after being insulted various times. I didn't cuss him out, or insult him, it was more of a threat. But still, I shouldn't have done that. I messed up big. So I'm hoping you guys, my good friends on blogger would pray for me so that I would have the strength to resist such action if and when a situation like this comes up. I'd deeply appreciate it b/c I don't want to end up telling people they are stupid b/c they don't agree with me right? Well it was tough on me, and I admit that I am still riled up from what I would describe as the most horrid discussion I have ever been a part of. I could also use some good comforting hugs, but I guess I'll have to get those from my cat for now. In any case friends, I need prayer. I would rather not loose my cool even in the most minute way like that ever again.

Futbol, Calcio, Soccer
That video really sums up my admiration for Francesco Totti (I couldn't figure out how to put a video on blogger, but for the curious, I am going to link some good soccer videos I find on my blogger with a whole section devoted to it). Good stuff. I'm sure he is one of the best soccer players out there. (One of, not THE) In any case, he is pretty good. I kept up with his club team before I gave up T.V. and I have to say that he is doing better then he did during the World Cup. He really didn't bring his A game to the world cup, plus allegedly one of their team mates had died/committed suicide? ( I could not clarify) In any case, He has gotten his game back and his team , AS Roma, Is one of the best teams in the world, up there with Manchester. Hopefully you Beckham fans can understand how I believe Beckham is not THE greatest soccer player on the planet. I do recognize that he is pretty good, even though people fail to hear me say that.

I'm a dumb road worker

It's become like a career for me. Walking down the street I call my life; falling in potholes and filling them in after painstakingly pulling myself out of them. But I am not a smart road worker (like the title says). I run back and dance around my fixed potholes, eventually kicking the dirt off of them and throwing myself in like a lemming off a cliff. After realizing my stupid decision, I mope in my hole for a few days before I realize my good buddy, friend, and Savior Jesus had tied me off before I made my head long suicide dive. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I've made my share of stupid decisions in the past, and I continue to make them now. Every time I do however, there is always that hand waiting there to pull me up, the life ring around my waste ready and willing to pluck me out of the chilling depths. Yes, I know I've got a lot to work on, but Christ's love makes up for my stupid decisions so there is no pothole too deep that God can't yank me out of. And life has turned out to be a series of pits and trap doors you either fall in or avoid, and it is just crazy either way, But you can either sit there and mope and go no where in your little hole, or you can pick yourself up, accept the hand up given, take the pain and hassle it takes to pull yourself out, dust yourself off, and keep on walking. I'll take the latter any day, and to quote some awesome gospel lyrics from the great Bryan Duncan, "I'll keep walking, Thank you." So I'll close with a verse from what is shaping up to be one of my most favorite books of the Bible.
"I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he us at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." Psalm 16: 7-11 Good stuff

Jack is back

Ever since I gave up 24 and television for Lent, there has been this gap that has been pretty hard to fill. I keep wanting to go back and sit down and watch the tube for hours on end but I know I just can't do that. So, I have been distracting myself a couple ways. One of the main things I have been doing is studying my bible. Now I try to do it every night but I just forget sometimes, or am just too lazy, which I realize is bad. But that has taken up a good amount of my time. The rest is spent walking around and pursuing more distractions. Reading books has been a good thing. I have gotten two done so far. I have also picked up my pad and pencil again to doodle every so often. But the thing that I am proud to restart is the one and only Jack painting that I started such a long time ago. I don't know why I stopped, but now that my steady supply of Jack Bauer has been cut off (willingly, and with no regrets mind you) I decided to get back on it and finish it up so I can move on. So Jack is back!

2 posts in a night is something new for me guys, but, I thought I'd tease all those people who read my blog with something I will be working on in the near future. This is the title of my next little book that I will be working on. Hey, it's the rough draft of the title art so give me a break

So far, so good.

Well I survived another monday without 24 and heroes. so far so good. Nobody has spoiled it for so far, which is good. I appreciate you guys who have gone out of your way to hold back from discussing those shows around me. Kevin has been a really devoted friend by going out of his way and not doing a weekly blog post on it. that is a friend and true 24/heroes fan right there. I had to silence my drawing teacher today because she and my friend almost freaked out and went into a super audible discussion over heroes less then 5 feet from me. She was cool with me not wanting it to be spoiled though, so they want on to discussing it with whispers. In other news, I finished Cell, by Stephen King. I have to say I really don't like King's style and if it came down to it, I'll stick with Clancy over King any day. I started Lee Strobel's The case for Christ today. A little change in pace book wise is good. after that, I am on to either some CS Lewis, or some other book I am referred to. I realized I have neglected my Jack Bauer painting, so I am going to try to get that in, and then aim to finish LOH ch 1 this week. I realized that I really need to reacquaint myself with some of those books of the bible that I haven't read in awhile. If I weren't working on Job right now, I'd be doing that, but I guess I should really put some other things off and work on my bible first and foremost. Prayer for strength would be appreciated folks. Thanks a million
