Our son was born today at 1:36 pm. His name is Drake Thomas Bastron. He weighs 6.5 pounds and is 21 inches long.
Brittany is doing great and was amazing once again. She is sleeping soundly as I write this. I am so blessed to have such an amazing wife.
We want to thank everyone who has been praying for us and this delivery. We are very excited, and incredibly humbled by the fact that God has once again entrusted us with another child. We ask for your prayers as we get ready for another great adventure with Drake. Our hearts desire is that Drake would come to know Jesus Christ in a real and intimate way, and would serve Christ all the days of his life.
We look forward to celebrating the new life with all of you.

Butter. That is all I can say. Butter! I have written about Colbie before. If you have not purchased the album yet, you need to run to the store or computer and purchase it right now. Enjoy this clip. It is just a little glimpse of her silkiness.

Why can I watch this clip 100 times and still laugh everytime? When Bill Murray says he has about 350 yards left, and he is going to use a 5 iron I just lose it. It is too funny.
What are you thoughts on Caddyshack? What are some of your favorite movie clips of all times?

OJ was arrested? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! It could not be. The glove did not fit. The glove did not fit.
OJ has a temper? What? Little did we know when he was filming those old commercials of him running through the airport, jumping over luggage that it was a flash in to the future of how he would be trying to run away from the law.
Have fun in jail OJ.

-F. Scott Fitzgerald
What are your thoughts on that quote?
Anyone looking for some info on who F. Scott Fitzgerald was, you can find a little of it here.
I also would like to recommend that you read his book "The Great Gatsby". It is one of my favorites.

My initial calls to family and friends found answering machines which increased my heart rate and caused me to feel a little sick to my stomach. After an hour or so of calling I finally reached them and I calmed a bit. However, my stomach was still sick for the people I knew had been involved and for the people who I knew would now be missing a friend or loved one. I could only imagine the people that were trapped under the piles of concrete or the people that would have plunged in to the water. Being trapped in a car as it sinks in to water is one of my greatest fears.
Twenty people or so are still missing from this tragedy. If you have any family members or friends that are still missing or know of anybody that was a part of this awful tragedy feel free to use the comment section here as a board for communication.
If you were there and witnessed it or were a part of it, please write a description of what all went down.
My prayers go out to anyone who has lost someone in this accident or is still missing someone.

This singer-songwriter is 22 years old and in my opinion has a great career ahead of her. He California good looks and attitude shine through in her music, and make it a very pleasant listen. Her song Bubbly is an upbeat song with a simple yet very catchy lyric and melody.

His sister was not in the audience this week, and I think that may have had an impact as well. People were tuning in to see Shyamali, and without her being there, I personally think some may have lost interest. Shyamali has been one of the biggest internet searches as of late.
I may be wrong on my prediction for tonight, but let's keep our fingers crossed. What will become of Sanjaya Malakar?
Has Sanjaya ruined American Idol?
Another factor that has American Idol in the hot seat is the fact that the camera caught Simon rolling his eyes last night when Chris Richardson sent a shout out to his friends at Virginia Tech giving them his support after the horrible tragedy that took place on the campus this week.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those killed at Virginia Tech this week as well. It makes this whole American Idol/Sanjaya story seem very small and unimportant.
Wednesday, April 11, 2007
I love American Idol. I think it gives people a great opportunity to be discovered and to showcase their talent. However, when people with extreme talent like Melinda or Jordin may lose to some kid who is basically a joke, it ruins it for me. We may be watching one of the last seasons of American Idol.
So since we all know Sanjaya Malakar will stick around another weak to annoy us all, I am predicting that Haley Scarnato is going home tonight. I do agree with Simon that the only thing that has kept her around this long is her looks. Every week she keeps wearing shorter skirts or shorts to show off her legs. Her song last night was very weak, and very boring. So Haley, so long my friend. It has been real. We will see you on the American Idol tour. I guess this is Sanjaya's world, and we are just living in it.

Thanks to so many of you for your prayers, concerns, emails, phone calls, drop-ins, notes, etc. I feel a little sheepish about the attention we’ve been getting – and about sending out another email. But several of you have been asking, plus I said I’d follow up - and this is the easiest way to do it!
Upon returning from Iowa City late this afternoon, we don’t know much more – with any degree of certainty – than we did when we left home. I guess “uncertainty” is the word we live with today and the reality we’ll live with into the short term future.
The ultrasound didn’t reveal any physical markers for either Trisomy 18 (which is lethal within the first year, at least) or Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLOS – a mental and physical handicap), which is encouraging but not conclusive. Either disorder could still exist in our daughter – but the lack of physical markers diminishes the chances, especially with Trisomy 18.
Jen did have the opportunity to have an amniocentesis, which would’ve given us conclusive evidence one way or the other, but we chose not to do that because of the risk it exposed the baby to.
We’re learning a lot … not just about these disorders and pregnancy related stuff. We’re learning sensitivity toward others who have walked this road before – or who face health concerns of any kind. The comments and prayers and notes we’ve received make us want to be more supportive to others who’ve been in our shoes before and will be in the future.
We’re also learning that the Lord works on a person’s heart in times of uncertainty in ways that he does not work under different circumstances. We want to know what’s going on for sure, and we don’t like uncertainty too much – but the blessing of it is that we’re able to learn to trust God in a whole new way.
Your continued prayers for peace of mind and a sense of “alrightness” and trust in the midst of uncertainty are very, very much appreciated.
Looking forward to returning to Iowa City as football fans rather than outpatients!
Please send Sanjaya Malakar home from American Idol.
Thank you for listening.

Then we have this little girl. Are you kidding me? Are we as parents teaching our kids to look up to the wrong people or what? This girl is freaking out for Sanjaya. Why don't I see little girls crying at church over their worship leader or their pastor? Why don't I see them crying over community leaders? Or what about our soldiers? Why don't they cry when they see the footage of Iraq? Instead we have kids losing it over boys who can't sing, but who can hula.
I am very confused. We as a world need to get a grip.
Don't get me wrong, I like American Idol. This year more than any the show seems to be pointing out some serious flaws in our society.
Oh well. Just my thoughts. What are your thoughts?
Wednesday, March 21, 2007
Haley Scarnato: "Tell Him"-She did not sound bad, and actually may have been one of her best performances to date. Her long legs can not hurt her in the voting process.
Chris Richardson: Great peformance. His voice resembles Justin Timberlake, and the girls appear to like him.
Stephanie Edwards: "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me"-Pitchy in spots, and she doesn't seem to connect with the audience. I have been saying for weeks that she might go home. I don't think this is the week, but if she doesn't step it up in the personality department it will be soon.
Blake Lewis: "Time Of The Season"- Sounded strained on the higher notes, but has a cool, current sound. He added some cool dance moves, but I could have done without the beatbox this time. Good performance overall.
Lakisha Jones: "Diamonds Are Forever"-Not one of her best vocals, but she is one of the best in the competition so she will be safe.
Phil Stacey: "Tobacco Road"-Nice energy. Nice upper register, but I have heard hundreds of guys that can sing this good. Phil is my prediction for who is going home this week. Phil, you had a good run, but so long man.
Jordin Sparks: "I Who Have Nothing"-Jordin has mad skills for a 17 year old. It was a cool song. She has huge pipes, and is easily one of the best on the show. We may be looking at a winner here.
Sanjaya Malakar: Even before he sang I wanted him off of the show. Right before they went to break there was Sanjaya flailing in front of the camera with his tongue out. Why is this guy here? Then he sang. All of a sudden he is a rocker? Why was the girl crying? Please help me understand. I want him to go home, but he will stick around another round.
Gina Glocksen: "Painted Black"-Nothing special, but the drummer was getting loose behind her.
Chris Sligh: "She's Not There"-It was kind of a boring performance. I like Chris, but it was kind of a forgettable performance. It was a good vocal though.
Melinda Doolittle: "As Long As He Needs Me"-Amazing vocalist. Reminds me of Natalie Cole a bit. She is relishing every moment and making it count. Melinda should be the winner. She has a bright future.

As I sat back and watched everything take place this weekend I could not keep from thinking how blessed I am. The Lord has given me an incredible wife who is not only a great wife, but a wonderful mother. My daughter could not bring me more joy, and my parents and sister love and encourage me. My sister is due in May with her first baby, so I will be an uncle. I live in a beautiful place and have enough food to eat daily. All weekend I just kept saying, "Thank You Lord".
As I drove to work this morning one of my favorite worship songs came on the radio. It is the song "Be Lifted High" which is on Michael W. Smith's new album. As tears filled my eyes, I once again could not help but think I am a blessed man. I am not worthy, but Lord thank you for everything you have given me. He has brought me from darkness to his splendid light. He has been patient with me and merciful to me. Lord I lift your name high. You are my life.
I just want to share the lyrics of the song with you today. I pray that it can encourage you today and you can think about all the ways God has blessed you.
Here they are...
Sin and its ways grow old
All of my heart turns to stone
And I'm left with no strength to arise
How You need to be lifted high
Sin and its ways lead to pain
Left here with hurt and with shame
So no longer will I leave your side
Jesus, you be lifted high
And even now that I'm inside your hand
Help me not to grow prideful again
Don't let me forsake sacrifice
Jesus you be lifted high
And if I'm blessed with the riches of kings
How could I ever feel that it was me
For you brought me from darkness to light
Jesus, You be lifted high
You be lifted high
You be lifted high
You be lifted high in my life, Oh God
And I fall to my knees
So it's you that they see
Jesus, You be lifted high
Oh Jesus, You be lifted high
Oh, You be lifted high
Oh, You be lifted high in my life, Oh God
And I fall to my knees
So it's you that they see
Jesus, You be lifted high

As I read the email my heart was saddened to hear that they had received some disturbing news. Here is the email that Matt sent me.
Hello friends and family!
Most of you probably know by now that Jen is pregnant with our second child – a daughter, who is due to be born on August 3.
On Monday Jen received results from a run-of-the-mill blood test which indicated that our daughter is at an increased risk for Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (that’s a mouthful …SLOS is easier!) and Trisomy 18. Both are serious genetic disorders. The first leads to significant mental retardation and other serious physical defects, and the second leads to death – either before the end of pregnancy (miscarriage or stillbirth) or within the first year of life.
Based on what the doctors are saying, the chances that these disorders will inevitably occur, with blood test results like Jen’s, are 1 in 31 for SLOS and 1 in 10 for Trisomy 18. So far, based on our first ultrasound, there are no symptoms evident for either disorder, which is initially good news. We’ll be heading to Iowa City for a more specialized ultrasound next Tuesday, which may reveal more clearly where we’re at.
Regardless of the results of these tests, Jen will carry this baby to term or until the pregnancy is naturally terminated … we are decidedly pro-life with our words and with our actions, and I’m proud of Jen for that.
While we trust that the Lord has a plan, and while we believe that his plan – regardless of the outcome – is best, we’ll be spending much time in prayer presenting our requests to him until we know what that outcome is, and we invite you to do the same on our behalf. Here are a few of our specific requests:
1) That our daughter would develop normally and healthily; that neither of these disorders would affect her.
2) That the doctors would have wisdom and knowledge to come up with correct diagnosis and proper administration of tests
3) That God would give us the physical and emotional strength – especially Jen – to face whatever comes
4) That we would have wisdom to communicate as clearly and as appropriately to Mason about all this as possible – he’s pretty excited about having a baby sister, so this could be hard on him
5) That we and others close to us would learn from this experience and grow spiritually in the ways that God intends
Other than being a little anxious about what may come, we’re doing well – so don’t feel like you’ve got to walk on pins and needles around us!
Thanks for your prayers – I know I've forgotten several people who I should be sending this to ... sorry. Please pass this along to anyone else who may be interested.
I am not writing this post in order for you to feel bad for Matt and his family. In fact in talking with Matt, that is the last thing he wants. He knows that many people have dealt with far greater problems. However, I am writing this to ask for your prayers and encouraging words for the Reisetter family.
God is a God that can heal and is a God of miracles. As you can see from Matt's letter, all the Reisetter's want is for God's will to be done, whatever that may be. Let's pray for that. Let's pray for the five things that Matt listed above, and if you can please leave some encouraging notes for the Reisetter's in the comments section.
Be a difference maker today. Pray. Leave an encouraging word. God has blessed us. Let us bless others.

Do you think that somewhere in the back of Brandon's mind, he is thinking "Did I really get voted off of the show before Sanjaya? Should I just hang up singing?"
I personally think Brandon did not peform well for a guy who has been a backup singer for some big talent. At the beginning of the contest I thought he may have gone pretty far, but it looks as though I know nothing about musical talent.
I was once again wrong with my prediction, Stephanie Edwards did not go home. Maybe I should stop predicting the results.
Okay, well we will have to wait another week. What stunning peformance will Sanjay bring us next? Will someone run on to the stage and just tackle him? Will he cry because Randy and Simon can't stop laughing at him?
Tune in next week. Out.
Wednesday, March 14, 2007
My vote for who needs to go home is an easy one. I really can't take another week of him. Last night he sang a horrible version of a Diana Ross song. You guessed it. Sanjaya. America, please send him home. Why is he on the show. It is a singing competition. Randy is right. If it as Hair Idol, Sanjaya would win hands down.
However, I have a very bad feeling. I believe Sanjay will stay, and someone with talent is going to be voted off. I think this girl can sing. However, I just don't think her personality clicks with the viewers. My prediction for who is going home is Stephanie Edwards.
Mark my words. Even if I am wrong and Stephanie does not go home, someone who should stay will be sent home. Sanjaya will be hanging around and singing some weak version of a song, and killing my ears for another week. Who will it be?

Today is Selection Sunday for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Today team's will have their dreams shattered or answered as they sit, gathered around in gyms, conference rooms, living rooms,and other places watching on televisions just waitng to see their team name pop up with a seed and where they are playing. Then there are those of us who are just waiting to hear the brackets so we can begin trying to figure out who will be the next NCAA champion. Sheet after sheet will be filled out. Pencil in. Erase. Pencil in again. No, wait eraase that. Okay, that is the correct pick.
Men and women will sit around the office, water coolers, and other places just trying to figure out their brackets. Why should I not pick the 10 seed to beat the 7? Watch out for that 13 seed. We will rack our brains, trying to create that perfect bracket sheet, that seems to always evade us.
Then on Thursday starts what I think is the most exciting couple days of sports. Kids leaving it all on the floor. Little schools pulling great upsets. Tears. Sweat. Teamwork. Passion. Guts. Heart. Memories. Guys knowing this may be their last game in their school's jersey. Will this be their one shining moment?
Over the next couple weeks we will all see some great games. We will have our brackets broken. We will see guys make lasting memories for themselves that they will talk about when they are old men. Hold on to your hat, we are in for some great times. March Madness is upon us.

The fact that Sanjaya is in the finals is crazy. Phil got very lucky, and was given another chance because his LeAnn Rimes song was horrible. Antonella's looks could not get her into the final 12, but I am guessing she will have someone hook her up with some kind of deal.
That is it for now. I guess I better go learn something about music and get my ears checked.
Thursday, March 08, 2007
Haley Scarnato seems to be a fairly nice girl, but her voice just can't compete with the other girls. She is going home. Stephanie Edwards is my go out on a limb pick of the week. She has the vocal talent, but I just don't think she comes across as a real friendly person. I think her time is coming to an end on the show.
So that is it. My picks for the week. We will see how it all comes down.

I was a little surprised by who was booted off of the show on the men's side. There are only a couple stand-outs on the men's side, but I thought Nicholas may stick around for one more week. Why is Sanjaya still on the show? Can someone help me please. He may be a nice young kid, but America come on. The dude does not have pop star written on him anywhere. Yes, he has a nice, pleasant voice, but he does not have what it takes. Maybe the tribute to his grandpa is what got him through. I don't know.
What I do know is that there are about 3, maybe 4 guys that are even that great. I would say Blake, Brandon, Chris R., and Phil (I may even add Chris S.) can give a few of the girls a run for their money, but I would say this year belongs to the women.
Thursday, March 01, 2007
Here are my predictions for whose going home tonight on the women's side.
Haley Scarnato & Alaina Alexander
I hope that you enjoy it. Maybe, just maybe it is something you need to hear today.

Writing for the Out of Ur blog, David Fitch writes about why we should abandon the "Senior Pastor" model in our churches. His reasons are:
1. Because it doesn't make sense to build a church around a personality.
2. Because there are no supermen(or women).
3. Because isolated pastors can get tunnel vision.
I tend to agree with what he has written here. In most churches, it's an impossible job description and really makes no sense Biblically. (Read this book if you don't agree with that statement)Read his whole post here.

The girls dominated the boys. As far as I can see, I am guessing that the final 3 will be girls. At least they should be. We shall see. However, tonight is the time to chop 2 girls and 2 guys. Here are my predictions for who is going home.
Rudy & Sanjaya
Leslie & Antonella

I remember when Rocky V came out and Tommy Morrison was in the movie. I used to think that he was going to be the guy to beat Mike Tyson. He was fast, he was quick, he was tough! He was going to be the Heavyweight Champion.
I would envision myself with traps and a neck like Morrison as I was lifting weights. This dude was a bad man. When one day we were hit by the news that Tommy Morrison was HIV positive. His boxing career was over.
Now he is coming back. He claims the test was wrong. We will see what happens. He has been out of the ring for a long time. The whole thing seems a little too risky.
By the way, has anyone seen Rocky VI?

It was Martin Luther whose anit-Semitism was deeply appreciated by Adolf Hitler. "The worst, evil genius of Germany," wrote Dean Inge, "is not Hitler, or Bismarck, or Frederick the Great, but Martin Luther."
When Martin Luther introduced the Reformation. he was convinced that the Jewish people would be delighted in his new version of Christianity and would join him in an assault on the Roman Catholic Church. He was wrong! In the beginning, Luther made complimentary remarks about the Jewish contribution to Christianity. When the Jews did not follow him, he turned on them with a vulgarity and a vengeance that greatly appealed to the German people.
His doctrine provided many suitable texts for Hitler's program of extermination. The most vicious, Jew-hating statements Luther ever made were to be found in his tract entitled "Concerning the Jews and Their Lives." In it he stated:
Let me give you my honest advice.
First, their synagogues or churches should be set on fire. And whatever does not burn up should be covered or spread over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or stone of it. And this ought to be done for the honor of God and of Christianity in order that God may see that we are Christians...
Secondly, their homes should be broken down and destroyed. Thirdly, they should be deprived of their prayer books and the Talmud in which such idolatry, lies, cursing, and blaspheme are taught. Fourthly, their rabbis must be forbidden under the threat of death to teach anymore...
Fifthly, passport and traveling privileges should be absolutely forbidden to Jews. Let them stay at home. Sixthly, they ought to be stopped for usury. For this reason, as said before, everything they possess they stole and robbed us through their usury, for they have no other means of support. Seventhly, let the young and strong Jews and Jewesses be given the flail, the axe, the hoe, the spade, the distaff, and spindle, and let them earn their bread by the sweat of their noses as is enjoined upon Adam's children. We ought to drive the lazy bones out of our system.
If however, we are afraid that they might harm us personally, or our wives, children, servants, cattle, et cetera...then let us apply the same cleverness (expulsion) as the other nations, such as France, Spain, Bohemia, et cetera...and settle with them for that which they have extorted from us, and after having it divided up fairly, let us drive them out of the country for all time.
To sum up, dear princes and notables who have Jews in your domains, if this advice of mine does not suit you, then find a better one so that you and we may all be free from this inseparable Jewish burden...the Jews.
Two days after writing this tract, Martin Luther died!
Now this is the first that I have ever heard of anything like this about Martin Luther. If this information is correct, and Luther did in fact write these things I am ashamed to have worked for a couple Lutheran churches.
Please tell me when Luther said these things. What response was there from others? What does the Lutheran church have to say about these writings and comments? Please let me know. I was amazed to read this. For those of you that attend a Lutheran church or a Lutheran seminary, how does this make you feel? Please respond.

"But again, more than anything, Lovie Smith and I are not only African-American but also Christian coaches, showing you can do it the Lord's way. We're more proud of that."
