Yes, down time has been good
Sorry it's been a while, but I just haven't been that motivated to update. I blame it on the inherent evils of Halo2. Yes that's right...Halo2. You see for a good chunk of time here, I have been video game free. Yes, that means not playing that many video games. For me, that's a good thing. Ask Chris. He's known me my entire life. The problem is that when I really get into a game, I sometimes have trouble setting it down. Then there's things like REAL LIFE, that get pushed to the side. Well, a little while ago, a friend from AZ called and asked me to get online with his son (a good friend of mine) sometime and play Halo2. I thought, well, this is almost ministry related. Then sean getting xbox live got me playing a little more. Well, now over the past couple of days I've had off (which mind you have been most excellent), I have played way too much Halo2. I've gotten REALLY good, but still it has very little value in the end. The other problem is that video games leave me in a fog. Like when I'm done, my brain doesn't quite function properly (like it ever has). So, after talking to Jason today (who has a NFL Madden issue), we will be fasting video games for 3 days if not longer. And fasting meaning not just not playing, but substituting that time with Bible reading and prayer. I think it will be good. For me 3 days isn't that long, cause I can go three days just trying to catch up with life and responsibility, but I think if I go 3 days, then a week won't be that hard either, than from there back to the occasional playing.
So, there you have it. An update and a reason for lack of updates. Halo2.
Seriously though. As far as REAL LIFE goes.
Things are well. I'm enjoying my break, getting a lot of things I need to accomplished, and resting a bit. It's been great. I'm looking forward to my first day with the fire dept. on Thurs. (even though it will be filling out paperwork all day), and finding out what my schedule will be so I can keep putting things on the calendar. God is good as he always is (yeah, being unchanging and all), but His faithfulness and patience are very evident to me.
I hope all is well for everyone else...I haven't really been on the blogging world at all since my last update, so I have some catching up to do.
Love you all.
