It want be long before my son Brandon and I will be heading back to the drag track. This was our first car we set up. We took this 1980 Z28 Camaro out of a field two years ago with weeds growing up all around it and in it. We pulled it out and put our personal touches on it. Brandon came up with the paint design and I applied the necessary colors. This was our project we did together and enjoyed every day we spent together on the project. It was a hard thing for us to do but we traded the Camaro this year for the S10 Truck. I have it in my shop now getting it ready for it's new paint scheme. We will have it ready in a few weeks and headed back to the track.
Well I have been working on the new drag truck for my oldest son Brandon. I am getting ready to put a new paint scheme on it. We will be taking it to the track in a few weeks to see what kind of times we can run. We have so much fun there and my grand daughters love it too.

My wife and I just went to a weekend full of healing. The weekend was about all the hurts you may receive while you were young, we work with a ministry called Living Waters, allot of these hurts are hidden in your heart and you forget about them until later years. God showed us that many of us missed true LOVE from our families, our parents or grand parents. When this type of love is not showed unconditionally it causes us to feel rejected, not wanted, angry, confused and lonely, these are just a few things . We work with couples that come to the retreat looking for answers and God always shows up and there needs are met. Our ministry is not about blaming anyone for the way we feel or pointing fingers at our parents. They may not have received the type of unconditional love God had for them too. It is about understanding the hurts and the way they make us feel,then taking them to the cross and giving them to JESUS. These hurts can and will hinder your walk with God. When we don't receive proper Love as a child how can we believe that a God above can Love us unconditionally. Thats why he tells us in John 3:16 that God so loved the world (that includes us) that he gave his only begotten Son, That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The key Word here is Love. There were no conditions in what JESUS done for us. He wants us healed so we can show unconditional love also. So basically this is a bit of what happened this weekend, there was so much more and it's hard to tell it all. These weekends take place in the mountains on North Carolina at a place called Apple Hill and it is such a beautiful and Godly place and you can just feel the presents of God there. I will be blogging about some of our teachings soon. God is the Living Waters that turns the wheels in our life.

You know when you wake up in the morning and God paints such a beautiful picture for you, it makes you glad that your his son or his daughter. Then you go to work or school and see and hear all the things you have to face during the day and sometimes it seams so hard to keep smiling. But when you get home our father God paints such a beautiful picture to look at before you go to bed. He still lets you know that he is still there for you and loves you so much. So rest well all my friends and see what kind of picture he will paint for you in the morning.

Well as you can tell I am new at this blogging thing. Maybe I will get the hang of this stuff. As most of know exercising is great for our bodies. The other day my oldest stepson wanted me to go and work out with him. So being the man I am I did it. Wow was I out of shape! Charlie had allot of compassion for me and took it easy on me. Our relationship has really grown these past couple of years and doing things like this really helps. He wants to make sure that I am around for awhile so he is going to whip me into shape. I try to spend as much time with all my boys as i can. Me and my oldest son love to drag race, so we spent allot of time working on our S-!0 drag truck. We are getting to put a new paint job on it. This is allot of fun for us. My youngest son lives a couple of hours away from us so I don't get to see him as much. He has his own Ministry working with drug addicts and homeless people. God really blesses him. Oh yeah my little Jack Russell Terrier was a bad boy today so I made him put his nose in the corner and yes he is my son too.
