Good day to all my faithful… and my deepest and most sincere apologies for neglecting my blogging responsibilities.
My dear friend, Andi, over at kungfuchicken has chided me a little to remind me of my promised “Testimony” post. This is proving to be a much harder undertaking than I initially anticipated. A stretch of my literary muscles, so to speak. I am up to the challenge… just looking for the time! (yes, i did NEED to sit on the couch and watch football yesterday!)
My mom is coming to visit this weekend… I have resigned myself to the fact she is coming to see “Fish” and not me… oh, well… Pictures of the blessed events to follow early next week… see if we can’t spice this blog up a little…
Still playing around with layout and themes… I would appreciate any and all comments (+, -, N)… most recently, I have switched the “About” page to be something you click to, not the main page when you first view the blog…

I hate Mondays… I don’t know what it is… I got plenty of sleep over the weekend. I had a really great weekend of relaxing and puttering around the apartment, cleaning… I even cooked!
So, I have a confession to make… When my marriage to Her ended, I started smoking again… Camel Lights… maybe 2 packs a week… not a lot, but… I’m sitting here looking at 6 cigarettes left in the pack and I have made a decision… I’m not going to buy any more… so, about Wednesday, I anticipate being PRETTY CRANKY… Pray for me… actually, pray for the people who have to be around me…
Sunday was a great day… Pastor Shane is doing a series called “The Real Secret”, which is a response to “The Secret”, the latest self-help craze. If you haven’t heard of “The Secret”, you obviously don’t watch Oprah… Basically, “The Secret” is a repackaging of the “new-age” philosophy of the power of positive thinking… It’s crap, of course. But, Shane is teaching “The Real Secret”, how to find/determine/discern God’s will for your life. Take a listen, if you care to… I believe you will be blessed…
