I haven’t writer a lot in the last few weeks. We are on our way back to the Burgh, and I’m looking forward to being home. We had a great time with both our families and tomorrow I get to preach at City Reformed.
Everyone was really great to us, and we got a ton of stuff we need.
I’m hoping to start blogging more in the next few weeks. Uneven messing with new design for the site.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas, our aniversary is on Monday so we will have a cool week.
We have decided we can’t keep Cesar, he was aggressive to David today when he came home. We just don’t know what to do with him now.
Pray for us.
Cesar bit our mom’s dog today and we are worried that we will have to put him down.
Here is the statement made by the MBC:
Effective Jan 1, The Acts29 Network is an organization which the MBC Exec Bd. Staff will not be working with, supporting, or endorsing in any manner at anytime.
This is a sad turn of events.
I haven’t seen a Simpsons that made me laugh this much in a long time.

The Pittsburgh Public School District is developing a massive scholarship program for all their High School graduates. The plan would give each student $5,000 each year toward college, until 2010 when that sum could be raised to $10,000 a year if students passed the state graduation test.
The catch is that you have to be in school 90% of the days (days missed are counted from unexcused absences, and suspensions) and you need to be in the district for all 4 years of High School. The schools that are acceptable are all state schools and most colleges and trade school in Allegheny county. For frame of reference Pitt costs about $13,000 a year for students in Pennsylvania.
The really cool part is that even if your are on a full scholarship you can still be eligible for up to $1,000 a year.
It seems like a pretty sweet deal. Lets see if its around in 2020 when my kids are in school.
“I never knew that Mario was Italian, but I did think he looked like a pizza guy.”
A few days before my birthday I got my new tat.
Its only half done, and it hurt a lot. Its taken a while for it to heal so I’ve been holding off on putting any pictures up.
Here it is:
Its from Revelation Chapter 21, where God is finally reconciled to his people in the new Jerusalem.
God says to John in this passage:
“It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.”
I’m betting that some of you have some questions for me about my tattoo or why I have any tattoos.
Feel free to drop me a comment or a question.
