And let's go back in time
Do you remember
The heat of December
and the way we walked
through pouring rain and endless talk
and the way we laughed out loud
there was something in your eyes
and now I see it was your love for me
there was something in your eyes
and what I saw still holds me in awe
in your eyes
Spend your life with me
until the end of time
We will make more memories
and we will share the stories
of the way we walked
through the pouring rain and endless talk
and the way we laughed out loud
And I saw a million angels
I saw an endless sunrise
I saw an open heaven
In your eyes
I saw an ageless moment
I saw an endless love
I still see more than that through your eyes
Do you remember the way we danced
And the way we laughed out loud

My son (Drake Thomas) turned 2 today. We had a great day celebrating with family. His favorite present by far was the little acoustic guitar that his Grandma Mellott got him. He honestly carried it everywhere all day, and wanted to take it to bed.

Sacred Parenting differs from most parenting books as it spends more time on the “why” of parenting then it does the “how-to.” And this is crucial since the “why” will inevitably affect the “how to.” Thomas’ words are helpful here:
What if one of God’s primary intentions for you as a parent isn’t about successfully raising perfect children, but about your becoming more holy? The truth is, we are living in the midst of holy teachers. Sometimes they spit up on themselves or us. Sometimes they throw tantrums. Sometimes they cuddle and kiss and love us. In the good and the bad they mold our hearts, shape our souls, and invite us to experience God in newer and deeper ways.
I encourage you to pick up this book and let God parent you and shape you through your children. Gary Thomas also wrote the following books I highly recommend as resources for couples.
- Sacred Marriage … one of our favorite books on marriage!
- Devotions for Sacred Parenting
- Devotions for Sacred Marriage
- Sacred Influence: How God Uses Wives to Shape the Souls of Their Husbands

Check out this site and you can get a few of the songs as free downloads.
Herschel Walker, the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner is going to start a career in Mixed Martial Arts. I don't know if this is such a good idea. Now don't get me wrong, Herschel Walker was a great athlete. I am sure he still is a great athlete. This is a guy who was one of the best college football running backs of all time. Walker was an NFL running back. We also should not forget the man was part of the two man bobsled team that competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics in which he finished seventh. There are other great credentials to his name as well.
Walker has always been a man of great strength. His training has always been a thing of intrigue. Herschel was an athlete that became successful without the use of free weights. Walker used bodyweight exercise and conditioning to mold his body. That is the way a lot of these MMA fighters train. He also is not a stranger to the martial arts world. Walker holds a sixth degree black belt in tae kwon do. I just have a feeling his age may play tricks with him.
Maybe the guy needs the money. Maybe the guy just can't let go of the desire to compete. I just hate to see a guy like Herschel Walker get hurt, or tarnish his athletic reputation. I don't want my last memory of Herschel Walker to be of him laying on the canvas after getting knocked out by a guy who was a bar fighter for a living.
Check out the article of Herschel's return to sports here and here.

These two kids are just torn up over the loss, but check out the kid on the right. He just can't take the pain.
I had a tear run down my cheek I was laughing so hard.

I stumbled upon this as I was looking for a picture for my last post and I had to post it.
Is that little kid trying to tackle Jesus? Do you think Jesus lets him take him down or does he pull a Bo Jackson on him and just run him over? Is Jesus handing the ball off or is he running the option?
Amazing statue! Too funny.

Here is how it read.
Matt Carter at the Acts29 Houston Boot Camp:
It does not matter what you accomplish in ministry if your children and your wife cannot look at you at the end of your life and say, “This man lived out in our lives what he preached”.

Read about it here. However, make sure you click on the video link within the article and watch the four parts of the video. You have to see and hear it with your own eyes.
