Feed Up

How do you know when enough is enough . It is getting pretty close to being enough . I am so tired of our government taking from the working people . I do not mind helping people that want to be helped and try to help themselves . What in the world is going on in this country ? There is people buying in to all this garbage . Here is just a few things i have heard in the past week .I make more drawing unemployment, i draw more on mental disability than i would if i was making 8.50 a hour " so why work " , i have four kids i can not afford to work , i do not want to get married i will keep living with him because if we get married they will take our welfare check , i hear people that actually agrees with " What is our presidents name " and his new insurance garbage . We are ready pay for those people who do not have insurance and it is called the ER . You can not be refused service at the ER .

My heart goes out to those that have lost their job . I know unemployment helps a lot of people . I am just saying that our government is already taking enough from the working people . They make it to easy for people to get on disability . So now they want to take more from us now . I hope this is not taking in the wrong way . I do not mind helping people at all that is what God's word tells us to do . There is to many people sitting out there that could be working but will not because our government makes it easy to stay at home . Before this president is done he will have convinced everybody to send their checks to him and he will give us what he wants and i believe there is people out there that would do that .

I would like to say that i do not disagree with everything our president has done and is doing . He is our president " i did not choose him " . He is doing some good things . There were some things Bush done that i did not agree with .

I could go on and on about this but there are people waiting on this computer .

All four of his kids are well mannered and good listeners . I enjoy playing around and picking on the kids . Conner is going to be a awesome turkey hunter some day . Next year he is going to show me how it is done .I do not know if John ever has a bad day . I am sure he does but he does not allow it to affect how he treats others . John thank you for your leadership and your friendship . I am sure everybody in our class would agree when i say we are blessed to have you as a teacher and friend .I have always heard that behind every good man there is a good women . I would have to agree with that statement . Angel thank you for all that you do .

Jessie Winters

Jessie is a member of First Baptist Greenwood. He is married to Michelle and they have two girls. He is also the planner of all of our life group fellowships. That has to be a tough job. Dena and I can barely decided what we are going to have for supper. I can't imagine having to plan something for a whole group. He always does a great job and we thank him for all that he does. I'm sure Michelle helps him with the planning, so thank you Michelle.

We were both new to the church and meet in our life group. I got to know him and we started talking about our house and how we had built it ourselves. He told me that him and Michelle were thinking about doing the same so we talked about it and he decided to do the same. I feel like both of us were put in this life group for a reason. Since then when have become really good friends. Thanks Jessie for your friendship.

God Bless,

Jeb Baldwin

Jeb is a true friend . I have known this guy for a long time . I would do anything for him and i believe he would do the same for me . I even lived with him for awhile .This is a guy that would help anybody . I believe he puts himself last on things to take care of . Jeb is a member of the Air Force , attends First Baptist Greenwood (serves anywhere he is needed ) , father of two ( 1 boy and one girl ) , and married to his high school sweet heart . Jeb will be leaving to serve our country on June 13 . He will be missed by his friends and family . I hope that Shelli knows she can call on Dena or myself for anything . I know this is going to be tough on both Jeb and his family . I heart and prayers go out for them . Like Jeb always tells me , GOD will never give me more than I can Handel . What a great attitude!!!!!!Thanks for the Friendship!!!

God Bless , Remember all our soldiers and their families .

Phillip Darr

When I grow up I want to be just like Phillip Darr . This guy is the same every time you see him. I know his family went through some tough times but you could not tell it by talking to him . Let me tell you if you do not know Phillip you are missing out . This guy is a christian , great family man , and on top of that he is funny . Just a little side note Phillip went to a Cards game for his birthday and almost did not make it back . The Cards Management seen his picture on Facbook and thought he looked like a natural and was trying to sign him while he was there . He decided to return Greenwood . Thanks Phillip !

God Bless , Have a Great Day

Where Is Everybody

I know things come up and on Holiday weekends people go out of town . It has been awhile since I have seen or heard from some of you . I wanted to drop a few lines and let everybody know we have missed you and hope to to see you on Sunday .

I am glad to hear that Tim Is doing well . I hope to see a fast recovery for Tim .

God Bless ,

3 Day Weekend

I sure enjoy the three day weekends but it makes it tough to go back to work on Tuesday . It would be really cool if i had one of those jobs that work four on and three off . I could work four tens so that I could have a three day weekend every week . It would be nice to do like some people and have the whole summer off . I would not know what to do with all the free time . Let me think about that !!!!!!!!!?????????? I would swim with the girls , go to the park with the girls , play In the sand with the girls , and do a lot of fishing . Yeah , I could deal with that .

God Bless , Have a GreAAAAAAAAAAAAAAt Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I say all these good things about our Military because i believe they are doing a great job . I am worried about the Commander and Chief . I am not real sure about all His idea's . I do agree with some of his idea's . I hope and pray he does not take from our military to save money . You know there are Countries just waiting for us to do something like that .Ihope his heart is with all Americans not just a select few .

I can not say enough good things about John and Angel . We have a really great group of people .

John and Angel Thank you for teaching our class . The both of you have been a blessing . I thank the both of you for your friendship . I might be Angels only friend !! Just kidding !!! If anybody is looking for a" LIFE GROUP " stop by and check out our class at 10: 30 . God is doing wonderful things !!!!!! Who better could you choose to follow ? The answer is nobody !

Jeb 's Mayor

Did anybody read the Greenwood Democrat this week ? I read about what a great job Jeb 's mayor was doing . I have tried to see the good In this guy but I keep thinking about all the trouble he has got himself Into and out of without much of a blemish . I know if I lived In the city limits i would be asking why Is car Is not tagged In the state he lives in , I would ask about the old lady that he took money from , why would you steal a sign , and why did he lose his car. It seems to me this guy has a problem with managing money and he does not mind breaking the law to get what he wants . He has made the town of Greenwood look bad more than one time . I can not understand why people keep wanting to defend this guy . I know there will be a day we all have to answer for the the things we have done here on earth . I guess I am a little old school . I like the good old days when a guys word was worth a lot , a hand shake was as good as a contract , and the guy we had running our town was honest and did his best to better Greenwood .

God Bless,


Is anybody else tired of the rain ? I know me and my family has had enough . I guess i should go ahead and say my yard has had enough also . We caught a few breaks during the week but does not look like we are going to catch any during the weekend . Do you ever wonder why we have the worst weather during the weekend ? It seems to me that the prettiest days always happen between Monday and Friday .

God Bless ,

Hey , I just wanted to log on and tip my hat to Jeb , Scott , Nelson , Ted , and Gary Don for sticking with P90x . I am still a little down because I had to drop out . I deserve to be called a big wimp . I could not complete the workout .

What A Wimp ,or Sissy ,or something like that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Friday, April 24, 2009


P90x 1 and Jackie 0 . I have injured myself doing this workout . I guess i should say re injured my hip and maybe my back . I am taking a steroid pack for six days to see if that will fix the problem . This stinks !!!!!!!! I hate that I had to drop out . I feel like I have let myself and the guys down . I have a family to feed and bills to pay so I have to do what Is best for my body . I can make this statement with confidence " as soon as the doctors release me I will be back and giving 100% " . Someday I will realize I can not do the things i used to do . I look at it this way , If you are going to do something be sure and give it your all .

God Bless, Have a GREAT WEEKEND

Well , I got up this morning wrote on my blog and went to the church and did P90X . I came home and did a little turkey hunting and then decided I would go over to my uncle's and do a little more hunting . I jumped in my truck turned the key and nothing happened . You guessed It ,the battery Is dead . I am setting here writing this blog and waiting for the battery to charge so I can continue my hunting . What a beautiful day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can not beat a 45 degree day and drizzle for turkey hunting . HA ! HA ! I hope this week does not continue the way It has started . I think I am going to go and have a biscuit and gravy . Later !

What A Day

We started the day off by sleeping to long . Allie woke and started wondering why the Easter Bunny did not leave her anything . After that was over we realized all of our new cloths fit except Keelie's . It was on a hanger marked 2T and it is a 12 month . After getting Dena past that we were running a little late and then Dena said she was not going to sign in the choir . I told her i would finish getting Keelie ready and we would meet her at church . Then the nice cold rainy day and the kids not getting to hunt Easter eggs . Then we were getting ready to leave and i heard a gun shot from my neighbors house . When we finished getting ready i decided to stop by and see what he had shot . It was Dena's turkey i have been taking pictures of and feeding for the past two months . The turkey had a ten inch beard . I was a little disappointed by this and was not paying attention to what i was doing and backed into one of his trees and damaged the rear of Dena's car . It also knocked the tree over . So, now i have to go over and cut the tree up and get it out of his way . This has been a tough day and i am glad it is all over with . I am trying to stay positive but that is easier said than done . The good news is that we are serving a risen God and everybody in the family is healthy . I know there are people that have it worst than me everyday . I hope everybody had a better day than I !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was not all bad . Dena's wonderful grandmother fixed turkey and dressing for lunch . We went home took a nap . Then we all just hung out and played .

GOD BLESS , Have A Great Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easter Sunday

There is a lot more to Easter Sunday than getting new cloths ,hiding eggs, and eating lunch with your family after church . Easter Sunday is not about the Easter Bunny it is All about the RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST . I pray for all who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus . This is the only way to get to Heaven ! Being the best person in the world and giving everything you can will not get you to Heaven . This world is dieing fast ! Jesus gave is life so that we all would have the opportunity to get to Heaven . You can not do that without accepting him into your life . When you accept Jesus into your life , life does not end a better life just began . Yes , there are things you will not want to do anymore but there are better things waiting for you if you serve Jesus . It just floors me when i think that Jesus died on that cross for me . Can you imagine if someone walked up to you and told you they would die for you so that you would have a better life ( and they did ) ? I bet you would feel like you owed that person for the rest of your life . That is exactly what Jesus did . I pray there is just one person out there that might read this and at least come visit church or just ask someone about Jesus . Lives are still being saved !!!!!!!!!!!!

The Winters

I would like to thank the Winters for tackling the job of planning fellowships for our Sunday School Class . They do a wonderful job and i know for sure i do not Thank them enough . I can not imagine trying to schedule these events around everybody's schedules . That would be tough ! We had a wonderful time at the picnic . I wish everyone could have made it . Again , i want to give a Big Thank You to the Winters for planning all our little get togethers . You guys are a blesssing !

God Bless , I hope to see everybody in the morning . Happy Easter !!


Dena and I went turkey hunting this morning . This was a lot of fun for me . We did not have any luck . We did see one long beard but a little out of Dena's rang .We had several hens come within ten yards and hung out for about ten minutes . We heard about ten gobbles . Dena went back by herself and heard another gobble . This was a lot of fun for me because as most of you know i love to go hunting so you can only imagine how much fun it was to go with the one that i love . I believe Dena had a good time after she thawed out . We just sat there and enjoyed all of God's creations . We are really blessed to have Dena parent's be so willing to help us . Nita got up and watched the girls while we went hunting . I want to thank them for all they do . I will post the pictures when she gets one .

? - / @ ^ & *

Not a whole lot has been going on so that leaves me with nothing to write about . The kids are acting like kids and Dena is being her sweet little self . Other than a little pink eye everybody has been doing well . I know the allergy season is not here yet but normally with the weather we have been having it messes with somebody's allergy's . We have been really blessed this year . God has really pleased our family , knock on wood Dena or my job does not seem to be in any kinda trouble . I am so thankful each and every day that i have a job to wake up to each and every morning . I hope everybody has a great week and enjoy the spring break . Tell somebody how God has blessed you, that might be what they need to hear . God is still in the business of saving lives .

Spring Break

Do you remember growing up and how there were certain times you always looked forward to ? I remember spring break because it was the time of year we always would go camping . I remember my grandpa getting the tent and the fishing poles ready each year . Can you imagine if life was still that simple ? If we did not think we had to go some place far off each break or had to stay at the nicest hotel or if you actually got to rest on your break . Would it not be nice just to take one break where you got to hang out and enjoy life with your family ? I think we all bring a little of the fast pace life we live in on our selves . Do we really need to run all over the country to say we lived a good life . My answer is No !

I am not saying that a family vacation is not nice . I enjoy a good family vacation . I am saying just because the kids are out of school does not mean we have to go on a vacation . My personal experience with a vacation is that you run crazy on vacation and you come home more tired than you were when you left . I can not tell you how many times I have heard someone say i can not wait to get back to work so i can rest . Take time and enjoy life .

God Bless ,

I am not real sure what to write about . After we are done with P90X i am empty . I have nothing on my mind besides rest . P90X is a lot of fun and i enjoy doing the work out each morning . I already get up at 4:00 AM and head to church and i can not make my self get up any earlier than that . We have added a few people this week so feel free to come join us for P90x IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL A LOT BETTER . I want to thank all the guys who get up each morning and come down and go through this me .

God Bless , Have a great day and a wonderful weekend

I want to thanks to all our men and women in the Armed Forces for all you do .

Can you believe the weather we had this weekend ? Can you believe the weather we are going to have this week ? Sure is nice to live in Arkansas where if you do not like the weather just wait a day . Dena and I took the girls to the park Saturday before the basketball game . It is amazing how nice weather seems to put a smile on everybody face . We had a good time just taking a break from the fast pace world we live in and spending time with the girls . I wish we could do this every weekend i really enjoy just hanging out and not having to worry where you have to go next .

God Bless , Have a great day

I am Worried

Did anybody read Jeb's blog ? He said that husbands better watch out because our wives are going to love him more now that he is on P 90 X . Then i found out that my wife payed for one of his haircuts . Then i heard them talking on the phone the other day . I guess p 90 x is not working on me like it is on Jeb . I guess that is why we had to go on this marriage retreat this weekend . Jessi better watch out because Shell may have been talking to Jeb also . Hey , after i seen his picture on his blog after p 90 x it makes me want to be like Jeb . Great Picture Jeb ! I hope nobody takes any of this serious , because i am just messing with Jeb . What a great guy !

God Bless, Have a great day

P 90 X

I just finished the ab ripper X . I am about to die now but i think it will pay off in 90 days . I really enjoy this work out . I think that we all agree that just after one week we all have more energy . I have been following the diet and lost about a 1/2" off my waist in one week . This is not a easy work out ,this is one that really makes you work ( and cry sometimes ) . We are still doing it every morning at the ROC AT 5:00 .IF YOU WANT TO GET IN SHAPE AND FEEL BETTER WE WILL SEE YOU IN THE MORNING . I want to thank Jeb , Scott, Brother Ronnie , and Nelson for doing this with me . It is always better when you have friends to do it with .

God Bless, Have a great day

What A Weekend

Dena and i went to DRY GULCH USA this weekend . The Winters also went to this . Jessi is the one who told us about this retreat . This was a marriage retreat where we renewed our vows . We got to play all the video games we wanted , ride go carts , horse back riding (if you wanted to) , and a wagon ride . There was more than enough food to eat . We had steak Friday and Saturday . We had Mexican for lunch on Saturday . Great breakfast buffet . We had movies both nights . Then came the big show on Saturday Night we men dressed up the best that we could and the ladies put on their finest dresses and we took a carriage ride to the church where we renewed our wedding vows . This was a great time and we will do this again next year . This is something i think everybody would enjoy . I know the four of us had a great time . We did not get to do much outside activities because of all the snow but we had a great time .

God Bless, Have a great day

P 90 X

Let me tell you if you wanted to get in the best shape of your life or die trying this is the best way to do it . We have only done it for a couple of days and i already feel like i have more energy . Once i get past all the little and big aches it seems wirth it . I guess we will all see in 90 days ! I am trying to follow the work out and the diet . I hope i can make it the full 90 days . I might add that Jeb and Scott seems to be really enjoying also . The Rock every morning at 5:00 is the place to get in the best shape of your life . When we are finished a old country song comes to mind " MAN I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN " .

God Bless, have a great day

Who is the greatest QB of all time ? Joe Montana is my pick ! I believe him and John Elway were real close . Then we have to mention Dan Marino and Jim Kelly . How about Johnny U and Troy ?

Please , do not suggest Brett Farve in the top 5 or even close . This guy leads the NFL in INT'S . I think he took way to many chances when all he had to do was toss the ball out of bounds . Then last year with all that junk about how he was going to retire . If he would have done what the greats done and just simply say thank you and walk away . That is how you know you have something special when you can look at yourself and say " i have lost a little and it is time for me to move on " .

I get tired of hearing all these guys say " i done " and then a couple of weeks later they are with another team . I wish they would just tell the truth and say i am not sure and move on . I also wish a contract was still a contract . If you sign a deal for 5 mil a year that should be what you receive each year for 5 years . None of this going and asking for more money because you had a few good years . Signed contract should be exactly that . I feel so bad for the players who says we ONLY made a couple of million last year . When i hear this i automatically stop and say a little pray for them and hope they can make ends meet . No, I am just kidding !!!!!!!!

How about A -ROD ? How about Joe ? What about Manny ? Baseball is getting close . I think i heard your phone ring .

God Bless, have a great day

How many looked at your phone or listened for it ? I know there had to be atleast one person .

It just amazes how different two kids can be . They even came from the same parents . Allie and keelie are as different as March and October . Allie being like October calm , peaceful , and easy going . Keelie being like the March winds , not sure what you are going to get from day to day . I enjoy both of my girls they are a lot of fun . Keelie must have taken after her dad because i can not see Dena being that way . Yeah , i know it is hard to believe that i could have been a mean little kid . Like i said , i enjoy both of them and thank God for them everyday before i leave the house . Kids are a gift from God !! I have less hair now that i have kids . Take the time to enjoy your kids why they are little . There will be a day when they think hanging out with you is not so cool . I know it can be tough if this mach ten world we are leaving in .

Camping Trip

I plan on having a camping trip sometime in March . If anyone is interested let me know by leaving me a comment or calling me @ 252-0166 . My thoughts are we could take our kids out and have a little fun . I think there would be enough so we could do some skeet shooting , hiking , shooting (22's) . I think it would be a lot of fun . It might even give mom a little break . Hey , even if you do not have kids you are still welcome to come along and have a good time . We all know the JCBUNCH loves to eat . So it is a gimme that we will eat well . Hope to here from you .

God Bless ,

Tuff Times

We all know someone who has lost their job or someone who is sick . I do not understand why things like this must happen . We as Christians must keep the faith and not question Gods plan . This is easier said than done . It kills me when i hear of a kid with cancer or some other type of illness . I hate to hear of people losing their job .

Here is my thoughts ! I am very thankful for my families health ( i know that could change any day ). I very thankful that i still have a job ( i also know this could change any day ) . I pray that neither one of these change . I also know that Jesus died on the cross for my sins so that i could have eternal life . That is what we must stay focused on . Again , easier said than done . I have not been put in any of these positions and i start each and every day by thanking God for my families health and my job . I believe health of our youngsters and jobs are heavy on all our hearts . So please continue to pray for everybody's health and their jobs . My kids and wife's health is the most important thing to me .

I sure hope our new president can change this steady down fall we are in . I really do not see anything changing soon . We bailed out people who already showed they do not know how to run their business . They continue to hand out big bonuses . We the working people are paying for the big bail outs . Our leaders refuse to let the rich feel what it is like to lose their job and wonder what they are going to do to make ends meet . So , the GOVERNMENT decides lets take from the working people to make sure that the rich stays rich . Yeah , that sounds like a great plan . I bet some factory worker probably came up with that plan . What , you do not believe that ? Whether we want to admit it or not we are living in a socialist country . I believe the bail out is all the proof we need . Take from the working class to make sure the rich does not lose anything . I do not see are Government taking from the rich to help the working class people who lost their jobs . Are they bailing out all the little business's who are closing their doors . As Bill Jordan ( The Realtree Guy) says the proof is in the pudding . To me the bail out is the truth . I have lost all faith in our government no matter what party is in their . Our government needs a complete overhaul . Maybe our new president can make a change .

God Bless, Pray for our country and our leaders

Long Time

I have been busy with OSB and have not made the time to write anything . I am going to try and get started on a regular schedule next week . I just want to let everybody know what a great blessing the OSB was . There was 50 people saved that night and another 13 ask for more information . This is awesome news !! We were unsure of how many people we would reach . God really blessed this event and we can not take credit for the people who's lives were touched this was all his work . What a great God we are serving !!! If you reading this and do not have a personal relationship with Christ you are missing out . If you are interested in coming to church we have three services @ FBC of Greenwood we are across from farmers bank . The services are @ 8:00 , 9: 15 , and 10:45 . We would love to have you .

God Bless , Have a Wonderful day and hope to see you on Sunday .

I know a couple of people who got new cameras and probably out taking pictures of all the snow and ice . This weather makes hard to drive but does make for some really cool pictures . I have not got out and taken any pictures but i do plan on taking some today .

I would love to be somewhere that had a huge waterfall . That would make for a wonderful picture . I would also like to get a picture of some wildlife out moving around in this . I thought about getting a picture of the girls but i decided that it was way to cold . Bill Walters has a awesome log cabin up at White Rock that has water falls all around it . That would make a really cool picture . Teachers enjoy your days off !!!!

God Bless , Have a awesome day


Can you believe this weather ? I really do not like the ice . I like the snow ! The ice has broke a few of my tree limbs and we were without power Monday night and part of Tuesday .

I was thinking of Phillip ,Mike and their families . Mike has a big hill to go down and stop before he goes into traffic on 71 hwy . Mike can go a different way that is not as bad . Now , poor Phillip sitting at the top of Greenwood with the beautiful view ,warm house , plenty to eat and his family are just stuck . I would not want to try to make it down that hill today . I would just have to stay at home . I know no one likes missing work . The kids are out of school and the wife does not have to work . This sounds like Phillip may have a chance to just sit back and relax with his family .

My wife is not lucky enough to miss work today . They still have to work on the bad weather days like the rest of the working world . She does not mind . Troy has a steep driveway , i would not want to go down in weather like this . Dena said he may have parked at the bottom so he could get out this morning . Hey , i wounder if Phillip parked at the bottom of his hill so he could get out . I mean it is only a 1/2 mile all up hill to his house . I am going to go check and see if Phillips car is at the bottom of the hill .

Let me tip my hat to Doug and his family . They do not get to miss work in weather like this . They have to get out in this and feed their animals and make sure the water is not frozen . Make sure one of the cows has not had a calf . It always seems to happen in bad weather . Farming can be a tough job and my hat is off to all of the fine people who are farmers . I also want to thank Doug and his family for the beef they donated to the church . I know they did not do this to recognized . I know they done that because they wanted to help . We are blessed to have them in our Sunday School class .

I know i write about this all the time but i really feel blessed for everybody in our class . You hear of people leaving a class for one reason or another but that is not the case with our class . We have a great group of people and who are eager to learn about God and a teacher who wants to teach . When all the serious things are taken care of we enjoy having fun with one another . If somebody is reading this and does not attend church we would love to have you at First Baptist Church of Greenwood we have three services 8:00 , 9:15 , and 10:45 . Hope to see you all Sunday !!

God Bless , Have a safe and wonderful day

One of Allie's friends had a birthday party at Jacks Skating this weekend . Allie had a hard time figuring out how to skate . So i went and got me a pair of skates so i could go out and help her . I forgot how much fun you can have skating . The next thing i know Dena is putting on her skates . Then the DJ started playing some music from the 80's . It just made me look back and think about the old Skating place we had here in Greenwood . Dena and i also made a couple of laps together, made me feel young again ( until i took the skates off ) .

We really need slow down and enjoy our kids because we do not know what next day will bring . I am just heart broken everytime i hear about a kid getting sick . I do not understand why kids have to get sick . It is not my job to understand it is just my job to obey and believe the word of God . Please remember say a prayer for all our kids .

God Bless , Have a great day

WHY ? ? ? ? ?

I wonder why there is a disease out there no one can find a cure for . Just something to think about . We have the best doctors and we donate millions to this and still no cure .

God Bless,

We had a good year in 2008 i hope nothing changes in 2009 . We started the lead slingers deer camp . We started with about 14 people or close to that . I believe everybody had a good time . I believe we will have more next year . I hope we kill a few more deer next year . We are thinking about moving the camp to Muddy Creek . If anybody knows a hot spot please let us in .

Our Sunday School Class grew . I do not remember anybody being real sick . Tim and Amy has a new family member . John and his mean side kick came over to teach our class . (You know John payed me to say that ) . Thanks for the 20 dollars John !! God has really blessed all of us . Good things happen to good people .

God Bless , Have a great day

Phillip and Kelly

I want to thank The Darr Family for opening their house on Sunday nights . I really feel like everybody is growing a little closer . There has not been anybody upset at on another . It always seems we are there for one another . Normally when you get a big group together there is somebody who gets their feelings hurt and gets mad . I have not heard any of this in our class . That just speaks volume for the people in our class and tells me we are all focused on what God wants us to do . I would like to thank everybody in our class for their friendship . We really are blessed with a great group of people . Hey , Phillip i will try to get out of there before 7:30 this week . I think i seen you yawning a couple of times the other night . I took the hint !!

If there is anybody reading this that does not attend a Sunday School Class we are @ the Rock @ 10:45 first door on the left @ the top of the stairs . We would love to have you . We have a lot of fun and really enjoying studying the word of God .

God Bless , Have Great Day ( I will get to see Jeb this morning, i know you are jealous .)

John and Jeb's Mayor

Does anybody think he will get in any trouble for taking the signs ? I do not believe so ! I will say this about the guy , he knows how to talk his way out of trouble . I want to tip my hat to the officer who caught him . I can only imagine how that conversation went . Here is how i think it went down .

OFFICER: Good morning mayor

MAYOR : I just wanted to get a early start

OFFICER : Why are you out taking these signs in this people's yards ?

Mayor: Well , can i get back with you ?

OFFICER: No , i am going to have to call another officer

Mayor : now , now There will be no need for that i am the mayor and i have broken the law before and got away with it so you know you are wasting your time .Plus , i have the right as mayor to be out here moving these signs .

Officer : Why would you be out here @ 2: 00 AM taking signs ? Why not wait until regular working hours ?

Mayor : You are going to regret this !!

I am not sure how the whole thing went down but that is kinda how i have it pictured in my mind . I would like to tip my hat one more time to the officer who did not back down because he was mayor . Look in John's yard the next election( Husband of Dena Dolan For Mayor) . I think that would be better than saying Jackie Dolan . I might not get any votes if i used my name . I probably would not vote for myself .

God Bless,Have a great day

What A Week

Man can you believe it is already Friday ? It seems like this week just flew by . Monday was kinda slow and after that it was like a F-16 in war . Well, maybe not that fast but still pretty fast . The sad part about that is the weekend will go by even faster . I hope everybody had a good week .

I do want to mention that there was a young man ask Jesus to be the boss of his life Wednesday night at Kid mo . That is exciting as it gets !!!!! You can not top that . That makes everything we do on Wednesday night worth it . The leaders are smiling the parents are smiling and crying with joy . This tells me two things , we are serving a AWESOME GOD and he is still in the business of saving lives .

I can say there is not a better moment when your child comes to you and says " I want to make Jesus the boss of my life " . I am telling you that is Awesome !!! The parents of this young man was proud . What a great week ! Maybe something great like that will happen on Sunday . I hope to see you all there .

God Bless , Have a great weekend !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope nobody has to work .

Thank You

I would like take the time time to say thank you to John and Angel . I set back and think where would our class be without the two of them . I am not sure why Tony decided to step down but i am sure he felt like that is what God was leading him to do . We were uncertain where our class was headed . None of us are teachers besides Phillip . So we did what all good Christians do we just prayed about the future of our class . We were told they might want to teach our class . Then we got the word they had decided to teach our class . I had never meet John before so i was unsure . After meeting John i knew God had truly blessed our class .

A few weeks past i got to know John a little better and our friendship began to grow . I realize John and Angel are a perfect fit for our class . John is a great guy . He is a guy you can go and talk to and you feel like he understands you . This is a guy who will be there through thick and thin .You gotta watch Angel ! No , I am just kidding she is a great woman . I also want to say they have great kids . The whole family has been a blessing to my family .

I would also like to say thanks to Doug and Ann , Scott and Allison . I have really enjoyed getting to know you guys . It is nice to see new couples in class and building new friendships . Hey , Doug and Scott you guys could be apart of the Lead Slingers Deer Camp . Thank you guys for for choosing our class .

I would like say thanks to everybody in our class . You all have been a blessing to me and my family . We were unsure what to expect when we came for the first time . You guys made us feel welcome . We felt like we kinda had a connection and this is where God wanted us to be . Thank You All For Everything !!!!! See You On Sunday !!!!!

God Bless,

God Bless ,

It Is Time

I know a few of you are going on diets . I think it is kinda funny how we wait until the new year to be worried about our weight . Hey , i am one of those that do that year after year . I am not real sure how you make that commitment all year . I know i wish i could ! I have to many good cooks in Dena's family . Let me go ahead and say Dena , Gran , and Nita are good cooks . Jana can order up good take out . ( I really enjoy giving her a hard time about her lack of cooking . ) Let me tip my hat to Kelly who has done a awesome job of sticking with her diet . Good luck with your New Year Resolution .

God Bless , Have a Great Day

If Jana reads this you know she will probably throw something at me the next time she sees me. I know i would .

check out the poll @ the bottom of the page


This is just kinda a vent for me . Yesterday was a beautiful day so there was people out riding their bikes . Now the vent starts !!!! It drives Dena and me crazy when we are driving down a road and the speed limit is 45 and you have to drive 15 because the bikes are riding own the road . This was over by Wells Lake .There is a brand new five foot sidewalk they could be riding on and they choose to ride on the road and slow down traffic . Here is what i have to say to those that ride their bike in the middle of the road where you can not get around them . Get out of the way !!!!!!!! If you want the right to ride down the middle of the road go register your bike , start paying taxes on it , and obeying the traffic laws . I understand if the road you are riding on does not have a sidewalk or shoulder . If the road you choose to ride on has a shoulder use it when you hear a car behind you . Hey, bikes get out of the way . Note to all bike riders there are plenty of trails to ride on in the woods . Find One!!!!!!!!!

God Bless , Have a Great Day ( You too bike riders)

New Year

I wanted to get this started by saying THANK YOU to John and Angel . I am very thankful that they decided to take over our Sunday School Class . I am very thankful we have a guy like Jessi to plan everything for us . I am very thankful for everybody else for the friendships we have built and are building . What a great group of people God has given me the privilege to know . I wish everybody a HAPPY New Year .

We had a great time @ the party Wednesday . We started it with John asking the blessing on the food and the fun began . One of the most important things @ a party is the food . There was plenty of that and it was good . The guys set in the den and watched a little football while we ate . The ladies set in the kitchen and talked about what great husbands they have . The kids kinda just ran around and having a good time . Our house has been child proofed .

Now after we ate Jeb , Jessi , and John brought controllers and Wii Golf . The guys took turns playing . Jeb owns the game so he was the Pro @ this game . This was a lot of fun . You hit the ball and if the ball goes the wrong direction you just shake your Wii and try to get the ball headed in the right direction . What a deal !!!!!! Can you imagine having something like that in real golf ? That would be fun to watch . I can picture this , Jeb hitting the ball and the ball starts to hook so he starts spinning his club the other direction to try and get it to land where he would like for it to land . That would be funny watching people play golf if that actually worked . If it did work i might be able to play .

While all this was taking place the ladies were sitting around the table talking about what great husbands they have . I am not sure what they were talking about but they looked like they were having a good time . Hey, guys this does not sound good for us . The ladies set around talking about what great husbands they have and we were off eating , watching football , and playing Wii . I will pray for us .

We also played the newly wed game . I am proud to say that John and Staci won . Here is some good news , Jeb and Shelli did not finish last . That tells me Jeb does listen a little . This should have earned Jeb some brownie points . I would like to say this Staci 's faced turned red on a couple of questions ( you can ask her for more info) . This was pretty funny and i hope everybody enjoyed .

Jeb , Shelli , Jana , Jason , Dena , and myself played a game called battle of the sexes . This is a board game and the men get asked questions that women should know the answer and the women get ask the questions men should know the answer . We played this until 1:30 and that is how the party ended .

I would like to take the time to thank all of you that came .Thanks for all the wonderful food that was brought and thank you for a wonderful time of fellowship . God has truly blessed our class . We have a wonderful group and we owe God for that . I believe he puts people in certain places @ certain times for certain reasons . I can see this class really growing close . God Is Wonderful !!!! I wish everybody could have been there but i understand it is tuff getting everybody together @ the same time .

God Bless, Have a wonderful New Year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
