2008 Review in Photos

with one comment

Wow.
I really have no clue where to begin.
2008 brought so many ups and downs that just the thought of going through and rehashing all of it freaks me out.
Regardless, 2008 was amazing for many reasons, and one in particular.

Thankful fors in 2008 in no particular order:
(clicking each photo will enable you to leave a comment and to enlarge a specific photo)

There are many more photo’s I could place up there; blog party, etc. However I have limited space and time.
Perhaps if I feel it, I’ll do a 2008 in Review part II.
I will say this, Twitpic made this a whole lot easier.

Anyhow….
I truly never will forget 2008.
Each memory will be tattooed on mind and heart forever.
From the moment of 01/01/08, to the moment of all the tears I cried, to the moment I first laid my lips on Allison’s, to the moments soon awaiting me in the next few days.
2008 will be a defining moment of my life to come.

I could truly never be more blessed.

Here’s to 2009!

Weekend Retreat…

with 2 comments

This weekend I will be traveling…enjoying…relaxing…celebrating.
Where?
Cincinnati, OH.

  • Saturday I will be enjoying an early afternoon of watching Notre Dame kick-off their season against San Diego State.
  • Saturday evening I will be attending the Three Doors Down, Hinder, Finger Eleven, and Staind concert with Lori, and Allison and Matt. Concert was cancelled due to the lead singer of 3Doors Down having laryngitis
  • Sunday afternoon we’re heading to the Cincinnati Reds/Chicago Cubs game.
  • I will not be taking my laptop.
    Instead this weekend will be used to just relax and have fun.
    If you care to know what is going on, feel free to follow me on my TWITTER account.

    Anyhow, until Sunday night…Adios!

    P.s I promise pictures by Monday.

    3am Tweets, 4am Sleep

    with 2 comments

    I ran this fancy little program to analyze my twitter usage this morning; just out of curiousity.
    Here’s what I found:(click to enlarge)

    I have never sent a tweet at 4 a.m. in the morning. I’ve at least sent one every other hour of the day.
    I feel like if I should ever decide to send a tweet at 4 a.m., it has to be something ground breaking.

    When do you tweet most?

    “What the crap is Twitter”

    with 3 comments

    “I don’t like you to be twittering”
    “Stop twittering you homo”
    “What the crap is twittering anyway”
    “Do you realize everyone hates it when you twitter”

    Now needless to say, all of those comments came from people who have no clue what Twitter is.

    For those of you that do have a clue, be sure to follow me:

    For everyone who somehow still doesn’t know what twitter is, please take the time to GO HERE and be told everything you need to know.

    Now go, sign up for Twitter, and be sure to follow ME.

    Church Plant Update (6), Small Group, Twitter Kills

    with one comment

    [If you don’t care to read about the Church Plant Update, scroll down to the Red font and Blue font.]

    Last night was our initial meeting for the start-up team. We had thirteen in attendance, which was basically everyone besides a few that were expected to show up. It went really well. Again, like I’ve said in the past, I love my team. Not only do we make each other stronger, but they[Kim and Ashlee, thank you ladies] also feed me when I’m hungry. Who does that resemble? That’s right Jesus. My team is better than yours! No, seriously, they’re amazing.

    Anyhow, because I love all of you so much I am going to put all of my notes on my blog every Monday. Feel free to read through, comment, make suggestions, tell us we’re stupid, or whatever you want to do. Remember, these are just MY notes, MY opinions of what was said. Also, when you see titles like “Values” or “Vision” or “Finances”, or any for that matter, know that those are not our visions or values underneath, just my notes to some of the values and the vision we discussed. On a handout that was made for everyone we did put specific Values and talked about our Vision, and discussed a lot of the finances. Once everything is decided on, I will start to post our vision statement, our values, and such as well.

    Anyhow, here are my notes from the first meeting:
