Priorities

Peach says: There comes a certain time where we realize the brevity of life, the fragility of it, the prescious gift that it is. We become aware of the fact the we only have a certain number of Christmases or 4th of July Independence Day celebrations. We begin to make choices on a daily basis, to hopefully, with the Grace of God and the Holy Spirit guiding us, make choices that will help us make the most constructive impact for our loved ones, our community, the Kingdom of God, and the world. Use that extra few hours to go visit your parents, enjoy old memories, listen to their wisdom. Use that afternoon to help your sibling, or your Uncle. Take that long put off anniversary trip! Go to church, you can sleep any time! Watch TV? Or write? Read FB or read your Bible? Or your new Jentzen Franklin book? Or how about, do you once again pick up that other shift at work? Maybe that’s right. Or instead do you take that day with your spouse and go take pictures, and drop in on your son who lives out of town, and go to dinner? You only have so many days. Use them to do things that last. To know the Lord more, to love on others, to serve, to build.

A major verse in our life this year is from Psalm 90:12 — “12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom”. To number as used in the verse means to set, to assign, to appoint, to tell. In other words, we have a role to play, God given authority to purposefully set, assign, appoint, to tell (declare) what our given days shall prioritize, according to His wisdom at work in us! So, go! Live, love, serve, have faith! Believe! He is good! Taste and see His mercy endures forever!

Ham

Batman says:

Ham? No not the other white meat although a bowl of beans and ham would be good about now but I digress (hehe fancy word eh?). The Peach and I are Technician Class ham radio operators, although we don’t talk much on it, we still have fun learning stuff. We are going to Orlando in a week to the HAMCATION or in English giant ham radio swap meet, and we are taking her mum and dad and plan to generally have a good ole time. Anyways for those that’s aren’t Hams, each ‘class’ is allowed to talk on certain frequencies and when u get to the top License you can use all available frequencies. This leads me to my point kinda, in my area with my license I can talk on 2 meter mostly, and there are ‘repeaters’ to help me be able to reach farther than my dinky set up normally allows. Clubs put these repeaters up and maintain them which is pretty cool. For the most part the system works quite well until certain people get on and take over the repeater not allowing much other radio traffic due to their taking up so much radio time. Ham is a community of like minded peeps that for the most part are courteous and respectful, but listening to someone discuss gas or other personal issues is not something most people want to listen to. I know it has on more than one occasion made me turn my radio off and not want to bother. Peach and I like to say hello to each other if we are apart and make sure each other is ok, our conversations revolve around those things, we don’t talk long, and normally just listen.

I guess the point is, if your a Ham, be courteous of your time on a repeater and your speech, it portrays a much better impression on people who aren’t Hams but might want to become one, as well as Hams that are new and trying to learn and be courteous.

This would work well in regular life to…

Establish the Work of Our Hands

Good Monday Morning!! Peach here! Hope this morning finds you in hope and great expectations! I like to start the week with a focus of good expectation, from the goodness of our God, and with that; a prayer and declaration, based on His Word, for myself and my loved 301AAFD9-1B29-4954-BB64-684A4B189765ones. Thought I’d share this with you: “Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children.
And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.” – Psalm 90:16-17

Go to a reputable class that covers ALL the statutes pertaining to CCW, you will learn so much more that the cost of admission covers, take friends and or family, but get it done. The worse time to need a gun is when you don’t have it.

1 + 1 = 1

E7A607BB-6B29-4014-A425-26ED8E54BD1ASays Peach: Nope! That’s not Common Core!! It’s the beautiful mystery of the mathematic principal of marriage!! One of the reasons we are doing this blog, is we have been extremely blessed to enjoy a whole lot of love, life and years together. Wouldn’t have been possible without Jesus. Plain and simple and no apologies for saying so.  And in a world where marriage is becoming increasingly rare and increasingly put off until later, we hope to occasionally throw out some insight on the benefits of sticking together, being forgiving, being kind to each other, having each other’s backs, being creative at loving and serving one another, being each other’s advocate, cheer leader, comic support! Marriage will never not be a sacred gift from God, to help us and equip us to to do this thing called life!! “Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9

Shape

Batman says: If you can’t bend over and tie your shoes without getting out of breath, you should probably consider a bit of exercise. I am not talking about being stupid about it and running off for a gym membership and spending money that is better put to use elsewhere, I’m talking about going for a walk, riding a bike, swimming, or treadmill… oh heck you get the idea. Move your sedentary butt a bit and lose a few inches. You will feel better, look better and live longer in the end. I want to live a long healthy life to annoy Peach as long as she will put up with me, so once again I find myself exercising because I have packed on a few pounds, but, good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll get down to fighting weight and pester her a bit longer

Y’all take care now ya hear?

Winding, Foggy Roads

302E6837-F7F1-4F76-A39D-72B033B17D57

Peach says: These are pictures from our departure from Biltmore Estates this past December. Wonderful trip. Short, and packed with fun! The fog and rain was so pretty. Batman handled the roads with a relaxed ease I could not have managed, (No, really! I don’t drive on the interstate or bridges! So really!) As I was looking at these pictures, I thought how often life takes us up and down and around, in paths that are sometimes sunny, but also sometimes foggy, sometimes uncertain. That’s ok. Take the rain, the fog, the sun the same. Take it with faith that God goes before you. He’s got your back. He’s at your side. You’re in Him and He’s in you. Don’t mind all those curves and dips. It’s so much prettier a ride than the straight and level road.
