Just an update.I am tired. Its been a long couple of weeks. I have this viral infection. The doc said it wasn't strep, I think they are full of it. I don't have much faith in these doctors now days. I guess I never had a miracle with one.

I have finally gotten rid of the pronto in my place. Got rid of it on the phone, + the few FHM mags. I have yet to get rid of the couple R rated movies I got. Those are going to be easy(er) as I don't watch that much TV as music + guitars are my thing. I made the choice to 'deny myself of all ungodlyness'. Well that's been seriously silly. And watching the changes.

I am filling the void with more kid time + making it about them which seems to be the new pride problem I have, as compulsive behavior makes you so selfish. This is a work in progress. I am getting better, cause I am trying.

My depression has been up because of the flu or what ever I have with my throat. Not fun. I have a measly, shaky, support structure, and makes it difficult to totally find the support sometimes.

So you know, I'm not married, I don't have a girlfriend, I don't have parents, and my siblings don't really talk to me. So I have spent a lot of time alone. I have thought about volunteering somewhere but haven't found something I cope well with.

So, the pressure is on + I pray a lot more then I used to. I'm trying to find this jesus everyone talks about. I have spent a lot of time running away from him and to now try to listen, is well the hardest thing. Exercising faith is defiantly a weak muscle for me.

If I have offended someone or anyone, totally sorry. Not my intent. Sometimes I am hard + cynical, like a crusty old drill sergeant. Not always the right approach, I admit, and I have been less 'chatty' here + just read posts.


Hang in there

"They always seem so full of wisdom to me. Been there. Done that. Overcame the impossible. Being a Crusty Old Drill Sergeant is not a bad thing. :)"

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
