Feeling excited
Tommorrow morning I'll be in classes for my last semester before finishing my Associates degree! I can't wait to get started :)

I am a father to 2 amazing children, imperfect and a sinner saved by grace. I love God and the Lord Jesus Christ. I also love to read, draw and spend time with friends.

I Am Sick of Being Single

Changing My Thinking In regard to relationships in today's society, we are so hung up on finding the “right” person to compliment us. On the surface you might think this is a good approach, but looking at the rate of... [more]

  • I Am Christian

    Eternal Security Part 1 I'm writing this in part due to some threads I've come across. It is easier to tackle the topic this way then to try to write it all out in comments. I’m going to start this off by stating that I be… [more]
  • I Am a Victim of Emotional Abuse

    Just Because Its Not Visible Does Not Mean Its Not There I know there are many examples of emotional/mental abuse on here, and each one is important. I also know that this form of abuse can come from both men and women. I happened to be on the receiving end… [more]
  • I Am Christian

    The Christian Life Is Not Exempt From Pain I am proud to say that I'm a Christian, and that Jesus Christ is my savior and that his atoning work on the cross, not anything I have done, is the reason I am saved and secured in heaven. But my stor… [more]
  • I Cant Change the Past But I Can Change My Future

    Taking Back What Is Mine I know this may sound cold, but I will explain. When I married my ex-wife back in 2002, I was in love with her but she was not in love with me. I was simply a rebound that she happened to… [more]
  • Other Confessions

    I want everyone to know
    I put up a strong image, one who has "been there, done that" and has a strong testimony. That's not to say that its not real, but in reality, I myself am weak. I embrace my weakness and I don't want to hide it because it is through my weakness that Jesus Christ proves himself to be strong. He carries my burdens so that I can stand tall and face the day. Life is not easy, it was never promised to be easy, but my strength does not come from myself, but rather through Christ who gives me strength. I have seen his strength first hand and I am glad that he is my savior.… [more]
  • Venting Confessions

    Gah!!
    Ok, I try to avoid her because I want nothing to do with her, but no matter what I do she always finds some way of making her presence known. And when mutual friends are involved her new husband always gets mentioned and she talks about how "great" he is and how "great" of a step-dad he is.... I know she only married him for superficial reasons, so I won't feel sorry for her when she ends up going through another divorce when she gets tired of him.It's bad enough having to see her when I pick up and drop off my kids, and now this :/… [more]
  • Love Confessions

    Conflicted
    There are times that I regret the fact that I married my ex. I realize now that I was simply a rebound that she happened to have a kid with. But if I had not married her I wouldn't have my two wonderful children. I wish that I could save them from the pain they are going through right now.....… [more]
  • Pretty pissed off....

    Posted on: July 17th, 2011 at 7:54PM

    Ok, I know its been a while since I last posted in here, but I couldn't really find a group to post this in.I just recently found out from my 8 yr old son that his mom let him learn how to play Beer Pong. Not with alcohol of course, but the fact that she opened the door to him for that activity will no doubt make it easier for his peers to convince him that its ok to get drunk, especially at an earlier age.I can't stress how pissed of I am right now.... I am definitely planning on ripping her a new one when I drop my kids back off with her (they live with her). I can't stand that woman. I'm glad she left.My mood: extremely pissed… [more]

  • Finally did it...

    Posted on: September 7th, 2011 at 2:16AM

    Well, I guess you could say that I reached my limit in regard to how long I could wait.After my 8 year old son told me that my ex-wife had left him alone in their home for an extended period of time (while she went to the store with my our daughter), I was furious. I waited until after I took them back (as I had them this past weekend) to call a relevant agency to ask for advice. They said that if I had the fact to back me up and if it was that big of a concern to me that I should confront her about it, so I did.This last revelation from my son makes a grand total of 8 definite facts that I have from over the past year which shows how my ex-wife is not behaving like a responsible mother. Ult… [more]

  • Found this interesting :)

    Posted on: November 23rd, 2011 at 6:56PM

    Well, I pick up my kids yesterday from their mom's house for their visit with me over Thanksgiving week, and not 2 minutes after I pick them up my daughter starts talking to me about her mom. As I don't like to talk about her, I normally just listen and talk when I need to, but we don't normally bring her up anyways so its normally not a big deal. So the first thing she says to me is this:"Dad, mom says that your not always right about things, but I think you are."And to that I ask, "Why do you think that?"And she says, "Because I love and care about you!"Mind you my daughter is 6 years old, so I don't always expect her answers to sound very logical from an adult level, but I still try to pr… [more]

  • On to new adventures

    Posted on: November 8th, 2011 at 11:40PM

    Well, things have been interesting since my last entry. For starters, I'm starting to register for college classes and if everything pans out the way it should I'll be leaving my current job to be a full time student. I don't have a declared major yet but I'm sure I'll decide on one as I go. I'm just thankful that my CCAF credits and my military experience will transfer so I won't need to take as many classes. I'm pretty nervous but I'm sure its unfounded and that I'll do just fine.In other news, I may have an admirer at church. Well that's what people I talk to think. It very well may be the case, so I'm going to try to make another attempt to talk to her. It's not easy as we don't have alo… [more]
