If you want me to!

The song link at the bottom of this post says it ALL!

We will NEVER understand why we go through what we do but I know without a doubt that when we see Jesus face to face we will know that it was worth it ALL!

May we(I) NEVER forget that no matter if it is night or day in this journey in my life, that there was one dark hour that Jesus spent on earth and a bright resurection that makes this thing called life worth it all.

Worship with the song! Allow yourself to get lost in the words! Allow yourself to cry if you need to. Make this song part of your New Years Resolution! For I will never leave your nor forsake you says the Lord! I am with you ALWAYS!

I can't fix it for you

A LOT has been going on in my life. SO MUCH that I didn't know it was affecting me the way it has been.

Last Monday I woke up with my right arm sore. I thought that I slept on it wrong. Tuesday and Wednesday it was no better so I thought that I had a pinched nerve. On Thursday morning I saw blisters on my arm which, by going to the doctor on Friday, ended up being Shingles.

Shingles is brought on by stress and normally develops because your nervous system is being attacked. These past few months have been busy but it's not just with the things that I have posted about. (i.e. moving, new baby, etc.) MANY other things are going on in our lives and I guess I was trying to be "Mr. Fix it all" and it has finally taken a toll on me.

I have heard of worse cases of Shingles so I can say that mine is not as bad as others. I would not wish them on anyone because they are uncomfortable.

There is a bible verse that keeps coming to my mind since the development of these Shingles. It's the one that says,(paraphrasing) "throwing off everything that hinders and running the race that I might receive the prize (Jesus)." Things in life can run you down! People can run you down!

Praying for one another and lifting each other up in prayer is needed but we(I) must realize that I can't fix it for you.

So on that note I end with, "Father, forgive me for allowing my circumstances and the circumstances of others weigh be down to the point that it was affecting me physically. Take the cares and burdens that I have and that loved ones have and touch them and bring them into alignment with your will. Lord I know that it is not by might, nor by power, but by YOUR Spirit! I thank you for the healing that you are bringing to my body and that these Shingles will never be a factor again. In Jesus name, Amen!"

Knowing that you are Blessed!

God has saved your Soul and because of that we will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. That alone should be enough to let us know how blessed we are!

A question for you: If God did nothing else for you from this point forward would you still follow Him?

God's word is clear that it is, "not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord!" God does not have to do signs, wonders, and miracles for you. He did the one thing that mattered the most and the thing that saved your soul when he sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins.

Don't be bothered by the things you don't have in life. If you are reading this you already have more than others have. We truly are Blessed! Don't set your sights on what "man" calls blessed but on what God calls blessed! It is BLESSED to be called a child of God! "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God!"

So, enjoy your Blessed day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Living in the past... NOT a good thing! Quit looking back and pondering on the things of the should've, could've, would've, etc. You are holding yourself back from the Present! The here and now that God has for you! You will NEVER enjoy your life if you live with regrets!

To be a little cheesy, each new day is a gift...that is why it is call the PRESENT! The here and now!

So, what are the things that keep you bound? What is it that causes you to greive or mourn the past. The Bible is clear when it says that, "weaping may endure for the night BUT, oh how I love the word BUT, but JOY comes in the morning! As the rain that we have had recently has washed away all the grit and grime from the roads so has the blood of Jesus washed you clean! NOTHING can seperate you from the Love of God!

Proclaim VICTORY today! Show, don't just tell, the devil that "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH; you, devil, can go back to hell where you belong! No more will you rob me of happieness, joy, peace, prosperity(of all kinds). Release any hold that you think you have on me or my family and run, flee to the flock of pigs that will take you off the cliff."

Now that you have taken the shackles off your feet...DANCE! Dance like David! Don't worry about who is watching and what they will think! It is time for us, the Church, to arise and take back what is rightfully ours! Yes, you will be hated; remember that Jesus was also hated! But no matter what people show to you, you show them love! Love is the greatest weapon we have to win others to Christ!

Let this be your song today: "It's a new season! It's a new day! Fresh anointing coming my way! It's a season of power and prosperity! It's a new season and it's coming to me!"

Sometimes... have to let people go through things and even though you may have the means to help them, you will only hurt them more by doing so.

You may think that this is contrary to what the Bible says but let me remind you of two verses. They are in different places in the bible but are both true. I am paraphrasing: 1)If you see a brother in need and have what they need but do not help them, shame on you. 2)Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will eat for a life time.

So, back to what I said at the beginning, "Sometimes you have to let people go through things and even though you may have the means to help them, you will only hurt them more by doing so."

So, where do you draw the line? Here is what I think:

You, nor I, are peoples Saviour. If we continually bail them out of situations, if we are their crutch in everything, then they will never learn to run, lean on, and trust the true Saviour Jesus Christ, who is the Lord of ALL!

We as humans need to vent, release, and talk about stuff to others. Letting it all out to another is fine but once you have listened to what they needed to vent, release, etc, leave it there and do not take it upon yourself as your problem. It is not your problem. Why add another "worry" to your life.

My personality is one that I jump into "FIX MODE!" If there is a problem I will fix it and I will work until it is fixed. Who am I though to think that my solution is better than what God Almighty can and will do for that person. If I chose to jump in there and work on their situation then I am getting in the way of what God wants to do for them and I am showing them that no matter what they can always come to me and I will fix it for them.

So, be that friend where your friend(s) can come to you and talk to you about things they are struggling with, or things they may need, just remember to listen and not feel that you have to act upon it. Encourage them to talk to God about it and lay it at His feet. If lead, pray for them right then. If it is something that you are able to assist them with go ahead, just don't feel that it is your responsibility because most of the time, things we are going through are things that will make us stronger in the end.

Remember, the title of this blog is "Sometimes". You, as a Christian, must discern what to do in each and every situation, but I do know that it is not our place to FIX anyone. In everything though, do it out of Love. Just like there is a way to say "yes" in love, there is also a way to say "no" in love.

I haven't found the right thing to blog about lately so that is why you haven't heard from me. I don't want to use my blog like I do facebook and post the same things on both. I want to start using my blog as a way to reveal my heart and share other things so keep checking back, I will post something eventually.

One thing though...Next Wednesday is my court date to go before the judge about my speeding ticket. I think I have decided to just ask for driving school, attend a class on a saturday, pay the $120.00 and keep it off my record. The thing is though, everytime I think about the day I got pulled over, which is everyday, I feel that I should plead not quilty and tell the judge why?!?! The only thing about pleading not quilty is, if the judge does not see it your way you do not have the option of asking for driving school instead. (or atleast that is what I have been told) I really need clarity on what to do. "Dear Lord, please show me!"

Making it all work

If you asked me 10 years ago if I would ever be married and have two children I probably would have laughed and said, "are you crazy or something!" "Heck no!" 11 years later though that is excatly what I am...Married, with two children, plus a dog, a mortgage, bills, a house with lots of love, and even the frustrations, and the trials of "Making it all work!"

It is not easy being a husband and a dad. There is a lot of pressure on us that we have to deal with and that we don't show to anyone, especially our wives, because hey...we are MEN and we are not suppose to show any kind of weakness or show that we are worried about this, that, or the other; especially when it involves providing for the family. We carry a lot on our shoulders and I know for me that there are things, usually financially, that I do not share with my wife because why bother her with things that I know are going to work out. God's word is clear that He will provide for us!

I know that I am blessed beyond measure and that the Lord watches my comings and goings. Even though I know this I can't help but to get weighed down with the cares of this world.

Yesterday, Pastor mentioned how we come into Gods house on Sundays, praising and worshiping Him, knowing that He is our all and all and then on Monday thru the rest of the week we are like, "lions and tigers and bears...oh my!"(my words, not his).

It is so true though! Take a look back in your past for a moment and see ALL that God has brought you through. Why do we worry for a moment that God cannot do above and beyond anything we can think or imagine!

I love Jesus with all my heart, soul, and mind and live in His grace everyday. One of my favorite songs is Alabaster Box. Enjoy the song!

Your advise is requested.

On the morning of Aug. 29th I was heading to work down 1st Ave. in Alabaster, near Fox Valley got pulled over by a police officer.

There were 2 cars in front of me and I had just got finished thinking to myself that, "this truck in front of me is smoking really bad. I can't believe I am going to have to follow this all the way to the interstate in Alabaster". I had already started slowing down before I saw the cop.

Once we all saw him he started to move and did a U-turn and got behind me. I thought, "I am sure he is about to pull over this guy in front of me because his truck is smoking or he is heading back to the police station". After the police followed me for about 30 seconds he turned on his lights and pulled me over.

Once he got to my window he asked for my license and insurance, asked me if my address was correct on my license and then started to walk off. I had to stop him and ask him why I was being pulled over. He said because I was speeding.

I told him, "sir, I am not sure what the speed limit is because I haven't lived at the address on my license for even a month yet and I haven't traveled this road enough to know." The speed limit on 1st ave. is 30mph. (let me just say here that I know ignorance of the law is not an excuse...I was just stating the truth.)

Either way, he walked back to his car and came back with ticket in hand. I asked him how fast I was going. I thought he said, "29 in a 30." I said, "29 in a 30!" And he said, "no, 39 in a 30." Then he said, "didn't you see me get behind you?" I said, "yes I did that I why I didn't think I was speeding." (come on now...would I knowingly be speeding with a cop behind me!!!...of course I thought about this after I was driving to work). I asked then asked him, "how fast the truck in front of me was going and he said 38."

Well, once I got to work I looked at the ticket and he had written down that I was doing 49 in a 30, instead of the 39 that he told me I was doing.

The Price of my ticket is $160.00.

My question to you for advise is...Should I go to contest the ticket on my court date or just stand before the Judge and ask him/her to let me go to driving school so it will stay off of my record?

I feel that I have reason to contest it because of the sequence of events that morning and from the information that the office told me about the speed of the truck in front of me. And even more so since he wrote down that I was doing 49 in a 30 and the car in front of me was doing 38. If that were true then I would have smashed into the back of the truck that I was following and then we would have had an accident report on our hands, not a speeding ticket.

I truly feel that he clocked my speed while he was traveling behind me and once I started up the hill towards Thompson Road he pulled me over. It is possible that he clocked me at 49 but again...I did not know what the speed was and I sure didn't think it was 30 being the type of road it is and I would not knowingly be speeding with a cop behind me.

So...what is your advise?...contest, ask for driving school?!?

15 Random Things about me.

I copied this from my friend Vals blog and thought I would compare myself to hers and inform you about the same 15 Random things about me. :) My "random things" are after the dash.(-)Enjoy:

1. I like to drink milk while eating chips...always have. - (I like drinking milk with pizza when delivered to the house)
2. I don't sit on the toilet of any place except for mine and other family member's homes. Not even friends! - (When I got to go I GOT TO GO, so I don't care where I am; I will roll the toilet lid if need be.)
3. I've been trying to kick the habit of biting my nails for 14 years now and I tend to only do it while watching a movie or t.v. show. - (I have a habit of biting the skin around my nails. I have gotten better at not doing it)
4. I frown while I sleep so I worry about wrinkle on my forehead. I don't want to have a perpetual frowny face (; - (I don't care if I get wrinkles or not. I get excited when I see a gray hair...yea baby!)
5. I think my feet are the most unattractive thing on my body and they turn blue easily due to even the slightest chill. - (I have sexy feet..really! lol)
6. I prefer to go without shoes all the time unless it is cold. - (I almost, always have something on my feet, even at home. Usually flip flops.)
7. My right hand is double jointed so my fingers are naturally crooked but my left hand is not. I was forever picked on in school due to this fact. - (One of my eyes is wider open than the other. You wouldn't notice unless I told you so...)
8. I want my floors to be spotless all the time, then and only then is my house "clean." - (sad...but's an OCD thing)
9. I check the cleanliness of others based upon their floors. - (I check the cleanliness by their bathroom. But of course Val, you wouldn't do that because you don't use other people's bathroom. ha!)
10. I have an eye for details others wouldn't notice and can tell you random things about someone after seeing them. This fact drives Alex crazy because he doesn't notice anything. - (I notice details others wouldn't notice as well but it drives ME crazy that I do this. I am pretty good at remember names of people too.)
11. When I'm mad my jaw make a weird pulsing movement. This is something noticed by Alex and he laughs because he can tell when I'm mad. - (When I'm mad I tighten my jaw which can't be good for the teeth!)
12. I have a keen sense of smell and always worry about the smell of my own home...which I'm desensitized to. - ( times I wish I couldn't smell)
13. I am a germiphobe and must have everything clean for my kids. No licking the paci before sticking it back in my kid's mouth here! UGH! - (I consider the source of the germs and I lick the paci ALL THE TIME!)
14. I really love flowers and buy them for myself because most others do grandmother shares this love. - (I like flowers but I don't by them for myself)
15. I know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made by the Lord and although my body may not be what it used to be I know that God makes each and every person beautiful in his sight. Our petty human thoughts on beauty are sad and I embrace the body God has given me as I teach my daughters to do likewise. (I am who I am!)

-I am SO TIRED of inviting people to do things but never getting invited.
-I am SO TIRED of being the one to initiate the phone call but never getting the call initiated by someone else.
-I am SO TIRED of people not responding to messages which tells them to reply back with a response.
-I am SO TIRED of how people who say they are my friend treat me. Heck, with friends like that why would I want enemies!
-I am SO TIRED of plans being made and then at the last moment, they are broken by the other person. Which heck, I should have known they would be; this isn't the 1st, 2nd, or even the 3rd time, but yet I keep trying.(fool me know the rest).
-I am SO TIRED of being used!
-I am SO TIRED of having to feel that even though these things are done time and time again I feel obligated to still put on a smile and pretend that everything is okay. If I no longer/if ever fit into the "box" that you have made then just go your way and I'll go mine.

But I think the truth has just been revealed to me. You have gone your way by your actions. It is obviously I who did not, until now, get the picture. This is good though. At least now I can quit filling SO TIRED!

This, That, and the Other

Life is going by so fast already. This Friday Asher will be 3 weeks old and since birth he has been sleeping great. He is really putting his brother to shame. It is 5:08 am on this Tuesday and we, Corban and I, have been up since 3am. I think it might be a long day. I am sure I should be use to the lack of sleep by now but some days are harder than others.

The house is coming together nicely. We have the boys rooms painted and I am working from room to room and getting it the way we want it. I enjoyed the pool as much as I could before the cold weather set in. I guess by this weekend I will be needing to cover it until next summer.

Here are a few pics of what's been going on for the past decorating, family and friend visits, parties, bringing Asher home, particular order:

In my life...

A friend posted on their blog about friendships coming and going into their life. I have experienced the same thing recently. It is true that some friendships are for only a season and I will admit that 99.9% of the time I hate when that season is over, but over it must be.

I have loved all my friendships and wish nothing ill on any of them that have ended. Remember, it was a season and like Summer turning to Autumn, and Autumn turning to Winter, the season has ended.

Bette Midler is one of my favorite singer/song writer/artist. I think this song sums up what I believe a lot of people are facing right now.

Hebrews 10:25 via the Amplified Version tells us, "Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching."

I think part of my gifting is being an encourager. If I know someone is going through something I am right there telling them that they can do it, you will make it, constantly trying to keep their spirits up, etc. I can encourage and persuade others better than myself.

But isn't that how God uses us. I think the areas that we lack in is where God uses us to build others up in and in return showing us that we are MORE than conquerors. You know what I'm talking about. I know there has been a time in your life where you were talking with someone and all of a sudden it was like a light bulb went off and it seemed as though the very words you were speaking were being spoken to you and bringing clarification, confirmation, encouragement, etc.

The body of Christ NEEDS each other. As Hebrews stated, we must assemble together. Coming together shows us that we are not alone in this walk with Christ. We were never meant to carry our loads alone. When the body of Christ is together it is then we are made complete.

So, assemble together with brothers and sisters in Christ. Encourage each other, admonish, warn, and urge each other to live a closer life to Christ. Take note that the word judge was not in this passage. Don't cross the line into judging, for with the same measure that you use to judge, God will judge you.

Have a blessed weekend Blogger world. Count your MANY blessings and name them one by one! Come and dine at the Masters table, come and dine! What a friend we have in Jesus...all our sins and griefs to bear, what a privilege to carry, EVERYTHING to God in prayer; Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!

Making a check list...and checking it twice.

Since we are buying a NEW(used) house there are things that need to be updated and fixed.

Updating the fixtures, fans, flooring, etc. are things that can be done as money permits. Things that will be done within a day or two of moving in are the following:

-Of course unpack and take a dip in the pool
-Get ALL door locks re-keyed (this is cheaper than replacing all locks)
-Replace broken water regulator (controls pressure coming into the house)
-Purchase a damper clip for the fireplace
-Fix second garage door that does not open(it isn't aligned correctly)
-Paint boys rooms and bathroom and get them decorated to the brides liking
-Pool fencing(big ticket item but well worth it of course)

The painting of all other rooms will be done as time permits as well as pressure washing the decks and replacing any boards on the deck or yard fencing that needs to be replaced.

I can't wait to get in and decorate. I have the position of the livingroom furniture all laid out in my head as well as most of the other rooms. I am "trying" to refrain from purchasing any furniture until we move in because I need to see what we have, what we can get rid of, and what we might need/want. I did purchase a chair from a friend the other day but I knew I wanted it for a certain area. I have tables and other stuff in the attic and storage that have been put away for a year or more. I am anxious to see all that I forgot we had.

I have an idea for a headboard for the master bedroom. It's going to be good! Bedroom furniture is so OVERLY priced and I refuse to pay what they are asking, especially when I can do just as good or better.

I will do my best to remember to take before and after pics of everything. Just remember that during all this we will also be welcoming into the world Asher Jackson Snyder. Oh how ready I am to meet him! He has been one active little man inside of his Mommy; more so than Corban.

Until again...

A L-O-N-G month...and A L-O-N-G post; grab a cup of coffee!

We have almost reached the end of the month. Our closing for our new house is set for 10:00am on Tuesday. We do our final walk-thru on Monday.

Before that happens though I will be heading up to DuckTown, TN to go White Water Rafting. This is a trip away with the guys before baby Asher arrives, which is only a few weeks away. It may seem to some that this is not the best time to take a getaway trip but I assure you that this was planned before the sell of our current home and the purchase of our new home. I will also assure you that the house is as packed up as it can get. There are the last minute things to pack but other than that, everything will be stacked in the dining room by Sunday afternoon waiting for me to load it into the moving truck on Monday.

With all that has been going on, we added to the list numerous, and still going, visits to the ICU at the hospital. Last Friday my brother was in a really bad car accident driving home from work. He was banged up pretty bad and has already gone through surgery a couple of times. For all that he has been through he is doing really great. Today they should move him into his own room. The main reason he has been kept in ICU was to watch his breathing. It has been irregular since he came in but the nurse said last night that he was doing great. They are watching his left leg and pelvis to besure it doesn't pop out of joint. He has a broken ankle on his right leg, a broken rist on his left hand and just some brusing all over the place. He did get out of bed yesterday to do some walking.

I know he is ready to get his own room and to see his 3 little kids who are missing their daddy like crazy but since you have to be over the age of 12 to enter into the ICU they have not been able to see him. God was watching over him and still is.

To continue on: My mother moves into our house next week when we move out. Yes, if you do not know already, it is my Mother who bought our house. Her and my stepdad are in the process of a divorce. She did not want to continue to live in the house they were in and she wanted to start the "Fresh Start" somewhere else. Keep both of my parents in your prayers. Divorce is a hard thing for anybody, no matter what the circumstances, and no matter which person wants the divorce there is still pain that has to be dealt with and worked through. 21 years is a long time.

I will let you know though I can see God at work in both of their lives. My dad needed a wake up call and God is giving him one. My dad has told me things this past month that show me that God is dealing with him and the provisions for both of them this past month is truly amazing.

Well, I am sure you have reached the bottom of your cup of coffee, or if you are my wife, the bottom of the can of Dr. Pepper, so I will let you go.

1st Hair cut!

Today, Corban is 18 months old. He had his first haircut on Wednesday. He did so good. We just knew that we were going to have to tie him down but nope. He is growing up so fast! In 4 more weeks his brother Asher will make an appearance. Life in the fast lane! Love every minute of it because when it's's gone!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Figuring it all out

It is 4:40am on Wednesday morning and here I am posting on my blog with the sounds of the Wiggles dvd playing in the back ground and Corban 1/2 awake 1/2 asleep on the couch. He has woken up a few times last night. I guess something he ate at dinner last night upset his stomach a little. At his age, everything is trial and error; until he can tell us what bothers him anyway. Or maybe, he justed wanted to be with his Daddy. ;)

Life is moving right along. The end of the month, which is our closing date, seems so far away but I know it's just because we are really excited about getting moved in so we can paint the boys rooms and get them both ready and then prepare for Asher to get here.

One thing I was thinking when I was up and down with Corban this morning was the fact that I will have to go up and down stairs to get his milk, etc. The more I think about it the more I think we are going to have to find a solution to that. (i.e. keeping paci's in their bathroom, maybe a small fridge to keep sippy cups with milk?) I am not complaining about the stairs. I LOVE the space that the new house is giving us and I love the fact that the bedrooms are on a different level from the kitchen, etc.

I've got LOTS of ideas about decorating and can't wait to start. Knowing me, I am sure I will be doing stuff in the weee hours of the morning while we are up with Asher. Might as well make good use of my time!

Jennifer has everything planned out in her mind of what she wants done with the boys rooms. Corban will have a fire truck theme. He already has his big boy bed which he will soom be sleeping in. We just haven't set it up yet because we were wanting to move first. Jennifer is looking for some other fire truck thWeme stuff to put in the room. Asher's room is going to be jungle theme with monkeys and frogs. Both of the rooms will be their own shade of blue.

As already mentioned in previous posts, the rest of the house can wait until we get to it. Nothing has to be done right away. One thing I do know though is that the seller better be keeping that pool clean. I will want to be going swimming as soon as we move in. :)

Living out of boxes

We have packed up just about everything we can live without for a couple more weeks and have realized that we have packed some things that we still need but are not going to go digging for them. Jennifer had to buy a spatula yesterday because I packed the many other ones we have.

The mortgage company is completely done with everything but we have to wait until the 31st because we are in a signed contract and plus it's giving the seller time to move into an apartment.

The end of the month will get here before we know it but in the mean time we will keep packing and living our every day to day.

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Like a kid... a candy store!

I can't wait to actually move into our new house. We close on the 31st and will be spending our 1st night there as well. I know there will be LOTS of stuff that need to be done but I can't wait.

Ohe well, wait I must. We have 19 more days until then. Time is going by fast enough so I really don't want to rush it.

The Glory of's ALWAYS there!

My Facebook status from yesterday went something like: "Even when we are going through a storm we are still MORE blessed than we know." While this is so true, it is also so hard to see while in the storm. God is GREAT and GREATLY to be praised!

If there is one thing He is showing me during this time is that no matter what, I should ALWAYS give Him thanks and not just when the going is going good!

I feel so OVERLY blessed right now and have become humbled at all that God is giving to me and my family. I hope that none of you think that I am boasting in anyway about the new house and all the answered prayer requests that came along with it.

I want to remind you that we had our house on the market for almost a year and ended up selling it for what we paid for it when we purchased it 4 years ago. I had to come to terms with the fact that, "as long as I could sell it for what I owed then we would be fine." Thank the Lord that we were able to walk away with a little money for the new house.

The new house answers SO MANY prayers. I love to entertain and fellowship with people and this house will allow us to do it. This is not just our house but Gods house because His word says, "Where the Spirit of the Lord is..." "Where 2 or 3 are gathered in My name, there I will be!" "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!"

Jennifer has a heart for Youth and I know that the extra bedroom and space that the house offers will come in handy one day. Even though Asher, who will be here in 6wks, is our last child, we have discussed about boarding a youth type person if there was ever a need. Sort of like a Masters Commission student or someone like that. It will be a few years before we chose to do that but we must get settled in the new house and get our two boys settled in as well.

So remember, as I have been reminded, to always give God the praise no matter what the circumstance!

Our New Home!

Below are pics of our soon to be new home. These are pics I took yesterday, real quick, while I was there with the inspector. We closed on our current home today and are still set to close on this one by the 26th. I am really hoping the closing date can be moved up a week. I can't express enough of how Blessed we really feel.
