My prayer today

I was doing some searching today for some scripture that matches my thoughts at the moment and ran across Psalms 145 specifically verses 14-20. Must pray more.

14 The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. ;
15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. ;
16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. ;
17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made. ;
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. ;
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. ;
20 The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. ;
Psalms 145:14-20 (NIV)

Prayer request

Just wanted to drop a note in real quick for some prayer. There are some decisions I need to make in the next couple of weeks to months. Don't want to go into a lot of detail right now. God knows what I am contemplating so just ask for God's wisdom in my decisions. Thanks.

A whole lot of shaking going on

What woke you up on Friday morning? This is what woke me up.

Story in the Herald Leader


Is this a bad thing?

I was reading through my RSS feeds today and ran across this AP story which is from the Courier Journal in Louisville, Ky. Here is another story on the matter from the Herald Leader out of Lexington.

I have student loans myself and I wish I didn't. I wish I had bucked up while in college and just worked for the money. I have those things hanging over my head for who knows how long. My wife is the same way. So we have one huge loan know that will probably take longer to pay off than our house. How sad is that. Personal finance is not being thought in our schools and that needs to change.

I wish I had learn more about it growing up and maybe I wouldn't be in the money mess I am in now. I hope I can pass better information to our boys so when they get to college either they already have it paid for or they work to help pay for it.

Rough week

Well after a good week off for spring break, this week wasn't as good. Our van needs a tune up and we knew that while we were on break. We were headed back to Misty's hometown to see her best friend from high school who just had a baby and the van started missing. We pulled over to a auto parts store where someone came out and ran the diags on it which showed a cylinder misfiring. So back home since we didn't want to get out far from home with it.

Well the first couple of days I spend trying to figure out if I could change the spark plugs myself. After some research, I still don't know if I can or not but now that is not the main automobile problem I am having. I was taking Colby to tball practice on Wednesday and while stopping for some traffic and a stop light, we were rear ended. Long story short, the insurance company is coming to get my truck on Monday to see if it it totaled or not. So I may be car shopping in the future. Right now I have a rental which is a whole other story. I may go into it tomorrow. It will depend on what happens in the morning when I talk to the insurance company again.
