After Thanksgiving Blues

The Foltice's had a great Thanksgiving. Dana's parents came up from Ft. Lauderdale on Wednesday night and will stay until Saturday morning. It was about 70 degrees yesterday, so we took an hour long walk in the morning with Oscar. That walk set the stage for some guilt free calorie consumption.

We watched the Lions game in the afternoon. After about 30 minutes of that, I had to hide all sharp objects so I wouldn't be tempted to do anything crazy. I can't believe how bad they are. I think of the Lions the way I think about the economy these days; it can't possibly get worse and I can only hope that things get better some day.

After a great day of eating, I had to wake up at 6am and make the lonely commute to work. If there is anything positive to take out of having to work today is that I was able to get some Christmas shopping done online.

I better get back to work. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

Highlight Video Released

My college basketball highlight video is in the works. I use the term 'highlights' very loosely as it is a montage of pull-up jumpers.

Here are the links to them:

Quick Update

It's been a while since the last post. I guess its that time of the yeat when things get crazy.

I have been consumed with papers and projects for the last two weeks. These will come to a head and all be gone in another four weeks. I will not need to do any more research projects for a long while.

School will be over with on the second week of December and I will have to go back to reality. I have no idea what the future has in store. I am excited and terrified at the same time.

One one side, Dana and I feel completely in line with what God wants us to do right now. There is no peace like being there. I am excited about what our next step is going to be, even though I don't know exactly what it will be.

On the other hand, I know that God's plans are not my own, and that terrifies me. His plans require us to make decisions that sometimes do not make logical sense and that is what scares me. It requires us to step out in faith even if those close to us think we are crazy.

The good news about all of this:

God's plans are better than mine.
He is smart, I am not. All I have to do is listen.
His plan is to help us, not hurt us
After death, my eternal reward will not be based on how logical my decisions were, but rather how I followed God's Will.

Knowing all of this, I am definitely leaning towards excitement.
