New Year’s Resolutions (A Look Back..)

Good evening everyone! Happy New Year! Welcome to 2011! I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve and Day.

Tonight I wanted to take the time to look back on my resolutions from 2010, and see which ones I kept, and which ones I didn’t. I also wanted to make some for 2011. The 2010 resolutions we posted around the last week of Dec. 2009. Check the original posts out if you want.

Resolution 1: Loose Weight– (FAIL)

Well that didn’t work. I gained probably another 20 pounds last year. I guess that is what married life does to you. I don’t know. So.. I am putting this one back on the list for 2011. I actually went to the gym tonight. We will see what happens.

Resolution 2: Get Connected on a Deeper Level– (Semi-Fail)

Well I have met some more people, and I have actually connected with some on a deeper level. I started playing softball, and naturally as a team you create that bond. I want to grow closer to these guys, and well other people from church, or even work. I will put this back on the list for 2011 as well.

Resolution 3: Serve God More (Semi-Fail)

I actually was a member of the camera team at North Church for a little bit. I also helped out at a soup kitchen, and helped give out winter items to the homeless. I am not trying to pat myself on the back at all. I give God all the glory on that. I do though am going to put this on the list again. Me and my wife are looking to serve together at the church this year.

Resolution 4: Give to Charity ( Semi- Fail)

When the earthquake hit Haiti, I donated money to two different charities. I haven’t donated since then. I have however given money to people in need that I know locally. Again, I am not trying to pat myself on the back. I am putting this on the list again for this year. I want to contribute more

Resolution 5: Become a Better Husband ( Semi-Fail)

Over the last year, I have worked at doing this. I have attended a class, read books, etc. I am putting this one on the list again. I guess there is always need for improvement, due to us not being perfect.

——————–

Those are my resolutions for 2010/2011, but I wanted to add one as well.

Resolution 6: Blog More

I started this blog as a ministry to myself and to other people. I started off writing practically everyday. Life gets in the way sometimes, and I stopped doing that, or even blogging once a week at the most. Well, I want to bring up my game. I have several people who read this blog, and makes me feel good. I like doing this. So yeah.. Look for more to come.

So what are your resolutions this year?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Tech. Tuesday — Guitar Praise

Good morning readers! It is Tech. Tuesday! The other day, I got a xbox 360 elite from my wife as a college graduation present. It came with two games and I purchased NCAA College Football 2010. This last weekend I was thinking about video games and the old original Nintendo and the games I played as a kid. I remember Super Mario Bros. , Duck Hunt, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Donkey Kong, etc.. Those were really fun. I also remember one game that my friend had. It was a Christian game called BibleMan. We played it on a PC, but I used to think that was so odd.

Well I was in a Christian bookstore recently and saw another Christian video game. This time it was for both PC and Mac. With the popularity of the Guitar Hero games and Rock  Band, I think this was a good move. It is called Guitar Praise.

It features 50 songs from Christian rock artists like tobyMac, dcTalk, Hawk Nelson, and more! I only wish it could run on my new xbox. For more information about Guitar Praise, click here .

What do you think readers? Are Christian video games worth buying/playing?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

*In no way am I or this blog paid to share this with you.

Happy New Year!– Resolution (#5)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve.

With the remaining five days of 2009, I wanted to share with you five resolutions for 2010 that I am going to try really hard to follow.

Resolution (#5)

Well readers, we have made it to the end of my countdown. I hope you have enjoyed all of my resolutions and made some of your own for 2010.

As I am writing this, I have been married a total of 188 days to my beautiful wife Nicole. We have been together a lot longer than that though. We celebrated our five years of dating on Nov. 12, 2009.

Married life is amazing as it is right now. Nicole and I have learned a lot more about each other after getting married. Even though we have only been married a little over six months, in the coming year I want to be a better husband. I want to do this by being the leader God has designed me to be for her. I want to show her more love than I already do. I want to share more of my time with her. I want to serve her more than I already do as well.

I can’t express in words the love that I feel for this woman. She is the best. She compliments me so well it’s crazy. Thank you God for this amazing woman.

Well readers, that is it. My resolutions for 2010.

May God bless you and yours in the new year.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

New Year’s Resolution Countdown

Afternoon readers! I hope everyone had a safe and good Christmas last week. My wife and I made it into where we were going around 4pm on Christmas day. Granted we left Christmas Eve. A normal 3 hour trip took about 12 hours. What a great way to spend our first Christmas as a married couple. We will always remember it!

With the remaining five days of 2009, I wanted to share with you five resolutions for 2010 that I am going to try really hard to follow.

Resolutions (#1)

When I was younger, I was, well, the tall, skinny, nerd kind of kid. Around 8th grade, things started to change. Due to my health, I had to start taking steroids. If you know anything about steroids, they make you gain weight if you don’t exercise. So, as you can probably guess, I didn’t exercise and I gained a lot of weight. By the time a graduated from high school, I was 6’1″ and weighed about 230.

Well in the last ten years, I have put on about another 45-50 lbs. I really have no excuse, other than I haven’t really taken care of myself. In the coming year, I want to lose weight and get healthier. This isn’t just for my sake. I want to do this for my wife, and for my future kids.  I want to be around for them, and be active in their lives.

So.. Anyone willing to follow this path with me?

Until next time readers, God Bless!
