to 9 years of marriage...

so today i celebrate 9 years of marriage with adriana. loving it.

i can honestly say that i have no regrets in my marriage with her. if  the next 9 are any where as adventurous as the first 9, then the rest of my life is going to be incredible. 

i remember the day i said 'i do.' 

i still 'do.'

adriana, i will love you as long as God allows me to.

little dave's surgery...

in case you didn't know, my little son dave had a minor surgery procedure done on his ears today. he should be able to hear much better

just wanted to say thanks to all of you who thought of him and prayed for him.

he came out just fine; we are having difficulties calming him down now.

ironically enough, we can already hear that his speech is improving. he's pronouncing his words a bit clearer

thanks friends

to reflections...

so during my quiet times with adriana, we are going over a study called 'down pour' by j. mcdonald. good stuff.

here's where i'm at. there's a few things that i've noted and been convicted of.

-i truly don't realize how holy God really scares me

-i don't spend enough time in worship of Him

-i need to start praying for revival

so with that in mind, i'd like for the blogopolis out there to consider these things with me and to take them to heart

what would it take to bring personal revival?

what would it take to bring revival to our cities?

i know it starts with prayer, what's next?

"I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground" Isaiah 44:3
