All of life's secrets are in your branches

Last night i came to the realization that in a few short months i will be considered on my own. The thought hit me while listening to a good friend, that finds himself in a similar position, speak on the subject of peace. I really enjoyed what he shared, partially because he did a very good job communicating the subject and more importantly because his words connected to my current situation. I wouldn't consider this time in my life a storm but i would say that the waves are growing and becoming a concern. The past few days these thoughts have been growing heavy on my heart and peace has been something that i have often neglected. I know where my peace comes from and i know that i have accepted the peace given to me through my Savior Jesus Christ. The problem comes when i forget to use His peace. Today i have been able to grasp a portion of this peace and accept it for what it is. The peace that i found did not wipe away my current problem, my current homework situation, or my constant thoughts concerning the future. The peace that i found granted me knowledge. Nothing in the past, present, or future can take away the peace presented to me on the cross. The story of the cross allows me to ultimately know that none of these aforementioned things will separate me from an eternity with the Savior. I've also come to the conclusion that i do not like the idea of being considered on my own. I think I'm the furthest I've ever been from being on my own. I have a group of friends that constantly lifts my spirits. I have a family that truly cares for me. I have a girlfriend that is unbelievable. I have a God that is forever with me and forever loving. The only thing left for me to do now is fall on my knees.

Peace and Love

Magical Mystery Tour

Well. We are back (enter frown face here). It was a crazy trip. One with many memories too crazy to list all on here. All I will say is it was a great last spring break. I could have never guessed all the goodness that it was. It was a great reminder that everyday has something new that we know nothing about. Our life is a Magical Mystery Tour. What does tomorrow have in store for us?

Love you guys.

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away... Oh yes i believe in yesterday. Today we leave for home. Tomorrow we seek a new beginning. Dallas has left us with a sweet taste in our mouths. It's our last spring break and it ended well. One could ask for no more than good time being spent with friends and family dancing the night away under the lights of a unknown lounge. Today was a good day. Today completed the journey. Tomorrow begins a new journey back to the homeland, but i still believe in yesterday. The last few days will not be forgotten. I will miss the people that have traveled this journey with us. I will miss the homes that resemble the OC. I will miss the kid that talks so much yet says so little. I will miss it. Yes, i will miss yesterday. From Pim and Bear this has been our week. We love you all and hope you all had a good sring break.

Tomorrow Never Knows

The temp has dropped but hopes still run high. Two days have past and spring break continues to be a break that will go down in history.


Gym routine
Shopping in Dallas
Pot Roast Supper
Movie (the Wrestler)
American Idol


Walmart run
Chile dinner
American Idol

Tomorrow never knows what awaits. Tomorrow will be the first hockey game that bear has ever attended. Maybe a fight will break out and add to the excitement. The future also holds a dance with the spirits a top a grand stage of pure enjoyment. What tomorrow holds can only be held in my imagination. What tomorrow holds can only be catagorized as amazing.

Love each other

Bear and I have a morning ritual...

8:00 AM- Lifetime Fitness


The 4 "s's" of wonderful living. It is fantastic

Today, we went to a "baseball game". It is in quotations because we (Mom, Mike, Bear and I) got to the stadium to realize that there was actually no game, and the Rangers were in Arizona playing. I guess you can't always count on sisters for correct information. Anyways, it was a nice daytrip. So we came back and went to the movies with the whole fam and my sister's boyfriend. Cool Dude. We saw "Gran Torino". Cool Movie. We came back and shared a meal together at the table with everyone and it was glorious. This followed by more good conversation by the ole fire pit. Texas is Good. Life is Good. God is definitely Good. More to come as the week progresses.

Be Cool and Love Eachother.

Good Day, Sunshine

The first day of Texas is coming to an end and what a day it has been.

1. Woke up played cars with the kid.
2. Went to Kohls purchased some clothing.
3. Lifetime fitness filled with steam rooms, hot tubs, and swimming pools.
4. Shops of the Legacy. (In a Jaguar)
5. Cookout with family and friends.
6. Me and PIM defeat old men at pool.
7. Poolside relaxation
8. ?????

I almost feel guilty living this life. I can't even imagine the days to come. This will be Pim and I's last real spring break. It's kinda scary. I'm blessed to have this time with people i love. I'm blessed period.

The Long And Winding Road...


Miles it took
Money it cost
People that came (Moses decided to hop in)
Roadtrip with Bear

754.6 Miles later and 89 dollars poorer we have arrived in Dallas, TX. Oklahoma is now my least favorite state. Regardless, we are here and it is an amazing feeling to have a week completely free in around 80 degree weather. We walked into the house to an excited Dominic as he went crazy for the next 3 hours. We ate, played pool with mom and mike, and had wonderful conversation poolside for about an hour. In a completely underexaggerated sense, we are in heaven. It was a long and winding road to get here, but the treachery was worth it. Hmmm, kind of like life. Hope to see you there one day. Keep on trucking down the road.

Until Next Week.

For Bear,

This is PIM. Love Eachother. Be Cool. Happy Spring Break My Friends.

Sometimes, all you need in life is a pink dolphin.

Another Travelin' Song

This winter has gone on for what seems like decades. Springs fresh face is waiting just around the corner. With spring comes relaxation in the form of a break from school (a much needed break). I've been looking forward to this years break like UCONNS womens basketball team looks forward to another NCAA championship (30-0). This year me and PIM will find ourselves bobbing and weaving in the infamous Ali towards our destination of new life found in the land of the bigger and better........Texas. Warm weather, health facilities, and subdivisions that so closely resemble homes seen on MTV's CRIBS await us. This trip has been on my mind for months and it's finally arrived. I look forward to hibernating poolside in the seventy degree weather, i look forward to sleeping for more than six hours a night, and i also look forward to the quality time spent with one of my best good friends. As i reflect on this upcoming break i can see the importance of creating space in our infinitely cluttered lives to sit down and shut up for the sake of rejuvenation. Hopefully this break will re-energize my mind, body, and soul. I see myself exiting this break like Lebron James enters an NBA game. I just hope i can dominate like he does when i return. Pim also owes me a date. I guess this week of pure luxury will count as his date, after all i paid a mighty fine price to spend a night with a dude. It looks like in return i got a week with that very same dude. I look forward to it.



P.S. Pray for our Journey
