It’s been way too long since I updated this page.  A good amount of my free time has gone into Gran Turismo 4.


Web site of the day: www.invisiblechildren.com – Thanks, Cara, for introducing this site about the children of Sudan to me!
It’s amazing what so many children endure throughout the rest of the world.  What’s stopping you from putting your own love and the love God’s shown you into action?


Here’s one of the many ways you can do so!


I would like to commend all the youth at church who made a decision that “True Love Waits”.  Whether you did it explicitly or not, that’s not the most important thing.  The most important thing is that you made a commitment, a vow, with our God to obey His will to remain sexually pure until you are married.  I’ll be praying for ya’ll!


“Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate, and my future children to a lifetime of purity including sexual abstinence from this day until the day I enter a biblical marriage relationship.”


The Five Commitments of True Love Waits


To God: Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
To Yourself: Matthew 22:39 “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”
To Family: Philippians 4:5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
To Friends: John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
To Future Mate and Children: 2 Timothy 2:22 Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.


Here are some pics from the True Love Waits Rally at Six Flags Magic Mountain back on February 13, 1999.  Yes, that guy on stage is Geoff Moore (and his old guitarist from The Distance, Roscoe Meek)!

Here is a picture of our youth group (in 1999) with GM!  I’m not in the picture because I was taking it!  I haven’t seen some of the people in it for so many years now.    That was a wonderful day!  Jerry Tom and I picked Geoff, Roscoe, and Geoff’s manager at the time, James, up from LAX in the morning, drove them to Magic Mountain, and after the True Love Waits rally was over, back to the Holiday Inn by LAX!  They’re just normal folks like you and me! 


I read the book of Malachi last night to complete reading the Old Testament of the Bible.  The thing that stuck out to me the most is how people were giving our God crummy offerings.  I believe this was a check for myself regarding the fact that I am to live my life as a holy and acceptable offering to God.  Because of that, I decided now would be a good time to get a little Third Day playing on my page.  Mac Powell’s left-handedness and awesome voice make the group a worthy candidate to be on my Xanga.  Their keyboardist on tour sometimes is Geof Barkley who used to be Geoff’s keyboardist as a member of The Distance! 


Romans 12:1-2 says:
1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.     
2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.


High school seniors, I’m sorry about what happened in Sunday School on Sunday.  When we pick up on things in two weeks, things should be good!  Thanks to those of you who encouraged me afterward! 



The New 2006 3 Series micro site (Macromedia Flash Player required) – HERE

I signed up to drive BMW’s new 2006 3 Series (chassis code: E90) on Friday, May 13, 2005 (whoa!  I just realized that’s Friday the 13th!  I used to be superstitious as a kid, but God took care of that in me!  Btw, the fear of the number “13” is called “triskaidekaphobia”.  That’s a Scrabble™ keeper, ya’ll!) at the Wild Rivers parking lot in Irvine, CA.  That should be a BLAST!  BMW’s facelifted flagship 2006 7 Series (E65/E66) will also be there for a quick look during lunch as well.


That day’s agenda in Adobe Acrobat format – HERE


My first track day is coming up this Saturday on the infield road course at California Speedway in Fontana, CA!  Someone from NASIOC.com (North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club) offerred to take pictures of me on the track in my Scooby!


Last but definitely not least, please continue to pray for:
1) Wilson Mark – concussion and bleeding suffered after a dirtbike accident last Saturday (wife – Patty, children – Kimmie, Kristen, and Willie)
2) The Wong (no relation – Henry, Lillian, Adrian, and Matthew) and Markewicz (Alan and Rebecca (I think)) families whose homes were greatly affected (mud slides mainly) by the inclement weather Southern California has had lately.


Take My Life
by Third Day


How many times have I turned away
The number is the same as the sand on the shore
Every time You’ve taken me back
And now I pray You do it once more


Chorus
Please take from me my life
When I don’t have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don’t have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus


How many times have I gone astray
The number is the same as the stars in the skies
Every time You’ve taken me back
And now I pray You do it tonight


(Chorus)


YEAH!  Ya’ll sound great!  It’s AWESOME!
