The kind of news I don't like delivering

Just wanted to let everyone know something that I just found out this morning: Bruce's dad, my step grandpa, just died last night. He has been in Hospice for a while and not doing too well. Bruce and my mom went out to see him a couple weeks ago and he talked with them a little more than he had been talking to anyone, but they were told that since they left he hasn't said much to anyone, I don't really know if he has spoken since then. He just wasn't doing well. 

I just wanted to let everyone know a little of what is going on. Just another reminder of the frailty of life. He definitely had an interesting life and enjoyed sharing it with anyone who would listen. He had some wonderful stories and they generally got a little more far-fetched as the evening went on. I enjoyed listening to all of his stories and I am going to miss him very much. 

If you could, say a prayer for his wife, Fern, and Bruce and his sister, Dale, and for the rest of his family and friends. Thank you all.

Illness in the Air

Over the weekend I went to Pennsylvania with Jenn to visit my step brother Mike and his family. I was really excited to see the girls, but when I got there I was saddened to find that all three of them were sick:( This wasn't good, but what was worse was Jenn was sick too. Needless to say it wasn't a very eventful weekend. One thing I did learn is that little girls are very mellow and kinda cute when they are sick, but that is the only good thing about them being ill.

I took some pictures, but it will take me a day or two to post them, so I will just apologize now for that. I hope all ye faithful followers had a good weekend and are having a good Monday!

Just a reminder

I just thought I would remind you all that I am devoted once again to my blogging! Not much has happened since my last post, but I just wanted to remind everyone that I am thinking about you and I miss and love you all!

I just wanted to let you know that just because you may have felt neglected for a while, I am still thinking about my devoted readers. Thanks again for reading and I will have something important to talk about in my next entry, I promise.

So.. It's been a while!

Ok, so a little catch up.. since new years I have gone to Colfax, IN to lead worship at a jr. high retreat. I started school back up (I'm taking 18 hours this semester). I am enjoying my classes this semester a little more than last semester. I am still dating Jenn, which from what I understand is what some of you want to hear more about, but that will be in a minute. More recently, as in this past weekend, I was in Macomb, IL playing in a worship band for a high school retreat. This was a nice little getaway. This weekend coming up Jenn and I are going out to see my nieces in PA, I am really excited for this, it has been a long time since I have seen them.

I suppose most of you want to hear about Jenn now... Well she is about 2.5 inches shorter than me, she has brown hair, most of the time it's curly, but sometimes she straightens it, she love photography and as I believe I have said is a photography major in a photography and tech school in Dayton. Anyway, we have been dating for almost 2 months now. She has one brother and she lives with her mom. This is weird, I don't really know what else to talk about, so if anyone wants to know anything else, just ask and I will answer!

In other news, if anyone is interested in my classes, I am taking the following classes this semester: Hermeneutics (how to interpret the Bible, just a fancy word for it..), Psychotherapy (counseling), Intro to Ministry, Old Testament Poetry, Old Testament Prophesy, and Acts of the Apostles. My favorite is OT Poetry, it is with one of my favorite professors and I am really getting a lot out of the class. 

Well let me know what you all would like to know more about. I feel like I have been out of the blogging world so long I forget what to talk about. I would just like to apologize once again for the lack of communication, please find it in your heart to forgive me.
