Who's Your Hero?

Tonight, I was interested in a video that one of my best friends, Pastor Justin Stewart, did a year or so ago at the Church of God Michigan Youth Camp. He is amazing when it comes to shooting and editing videos, and he and another friend from Michigan, Dave Moore did this together. (Both are now here in Florida)

The theme is of course superheroes. I think you will all love the ending. I could come up with a devotion or sermon on it, but this video says it all. Enjoy!

I Did It!

I just wanted to toss up a quick post to say I finally did it! For the first time in 4 or 5 years, I have fallen below the 200 pound mark! I now weigh 199 pounds.

Since moving down here to Lakeland, I have been working as a lawn spray technician. Working outside has really been a blessing. It has forced me to be mobile. I walk all day long, either dragging a 300 foot spray hose, or carrying a 40-pound backpack sprayer to kill off weeds. All the exercise has really paid off. In just about 4 months, I have dropped about 20 pounds.

The cool thing is that I haven't really changed my diet. I drink a lot more water because I need it in the hot Florida sun after a few minutes of that hose. I cut back significantly on soda pop, drinking it moderately. I don't really eat all that different, though I try to eat a little more in the way of fruits and vegetables. The stuff grown here is great.

Anyway, that is it. Nothing too deep today, I just wanted to shout out to everyone that I am losing weight and feeling good!

God bless!
