Back to School

So i had a 3 day rest and now i am off to Indiana Wesleyan University to be the chaplain for my dorm... excited and ready... and yet still craving surfing like it is nobody's business! But it is something to keep in check. Could surfing be considered an idol in my life?!? Is the amount of time and thought i put into surfing more than i put into my relationship with God? Welp back to school. God I commit this year to you and help me to put you first.
Proverbs 16:3 "Commit whatever you do to the Lord and your plans will succeed."

I'm Off

Sorry for those who have tried to keep up! I have been so busy enjoying California that everything else went crazy! I barely got on the internet, lost my cell phone- so i had no way to be contacted, and was without my car for a week while it was getting fixed! Now i am off to visit my sis KelDawg today, and then i drive home to Indiana and should get there Wednesday night. So before i go... here are the highlights of the past few weeks

Me, Moulaye, Jessie, and Trace

Went down to Mexico Twice to Surf and hang out with friends

The DayCamp Staff at Disneyland

What... What... I Can't hear you B!

This is a tribute to my trashtalking brother-in-law! He only weighs 160lbs. and yet he thinks he is bigger and more ghetto than all of Compton put together! But since he is stuck in Maryland... he takes it out on poor little ole' me! Brandon, Keep trying bro, but just remember that whether it's basketball or life, all your going to see is my backside while you are trying to keep up! With a brotherly love that wouldn't have it any other way... Peace! I'm going surfing


I don't know what the number is now but i am calling up Jenny Craig! Today while i was playing four square i totally ripped my shorts! The weirdest thing ever was when one of the other workers ripped his pants too! What are the chances of two of splitting our pants on the same day... I guess they're PRETTY GOOD! But it's all good because i had the best dream EVER!

The Perfect Dream
I have had surfing dreams for awhile... but in every dream there are always good waves and i have never been able to ride them!!! Either they got further away or something would happen. You know you are pretty bad when you can't even do good in your dreams! Anyways, not last night! I did good surfing the day before, so last night for the first time... I RODE THE WAVE. Not only that but i was in the barrel like this and ... honestly... i probably felt better in my dream than i EVER will in really life! Then i woke up late for work and split my pants and my life returned to normal!

The Commitment!

Brandon Bruce and i made a commitment two days ago that we are going to consistently have time alone with God for a year without missing. Your prayers are appreciated. This is not an attempt to "conquer" something for our glory and the last thing we want it to end up like is a Tower of Babel thing, but i think it is important that we could say, that it may not be a necessity but it is possible and good to be that committed to the Lord. We often hear so much about the failures of man. How we constantly sin and mess up. What about the victory we can have in Jesus! That He can be our bread of life and living water and that man truly does not have to live on bread alone but can live on every word of God! Please pray for us on this journey!
