God's Man | Not Me Monday 4th Edition...

Time to take a look at what I didn't do over the last week. Here is my not me entry for today. I did not post in 25 Random Things About Me that "I was married to the most wonderfulwomen in the world."I did not break my blogging fast one night early so I could post the above link.I did not breathe a sigh of relief when my Mother In Law showed up yesterday because she could entertain the kids while I tried to make some desserts.I did not burn the above dessert anyway resulting in my having to throw away about 60 Hershey KissesI did not get frustrated with God during my fast when He gave me some insight on a decision I had made.  I never argue with Him.  I am an obedient son.I did not allow my children to use me as an obstacle course so I could lie down for a few minutes.I certainly do not still have my Christmas decorations up on my house.I did not take pictures of my kids playing with toilet paper and paper towels and then …

God's Man | 25 Things About Me

UPDATE: Thanks to my Big Brother Rick for reminding me that I am only married to one woman and now multiple women.

My friend Momo tagged me so here are 25 thing about me.At one point I was one of 5 people in my family with the same first and last name
I had a list growing up of the things I wanted to do before I got married and I did them all.I live in a neighborhood that was founded by my Great Great Grandfather and most of the people that have lived here are family.I have a ridiculous love of Mangos.I love comic books/video games/computer and most other nerdy pursuits.My wife and I plan to own a Villa here someday.I have worked for 3 companies that were in the top three in their industry.I was called into the ministry when I was a pre-teen but I ignored it until I was in my 20's.I am somewhat of an oddity in my family because of my political views.I am a voracious student of the founding fathers.I love to read and typically read 2-4 books every month.My wife and I went an entire …

The stuff they want to play with is much cheaper. In case you can't tell those are jumbo packs of toilet paper and towels. ;)

Not Me Monday God's Man Edition
I did not start writing this list while in a meeting.I did not speak for more than my alloted time on Sunday.I did not reorder my sermon shortly before the service began.I did not laugh when my wife had to change a stinky diaper. We don't have a rule that whoever smells it has to deal with it. ;)I did not go in search of mangoes 2 nights in a row. Mangoes are my favorite!I did not fail in said search on both nights. :(I did not go off budget to buy a chipotle burrito over the weekend. I am teaching financial peace university at my church so I would never do that.I did not spend time doing electrical work in my house only to learn that all I needed was a new light bulb. I am a nerd so things like this never happen.I did not get excited when I could leave early this morning. I love watch my family get ready so we can all leave together.I did not stare at my wife through my basement window while she was exercising. I was busy cleaning the ice off of…

Not Me Monday | God's Man Edition...

I did not get frustrated with my wonderful wife because, after a weekend filled with chores (painting, moving furniture, and some light electrical), we spent our morning drive talking about all the chores coming up for me in the next weekend. I did not get scared reading the book "The Love Dare" because God is testing me with each new dare. I did not completely blow off working on a project that has lingered on from 2008. I did not give my daughters huge amounts of cheese curls with their lunch on Sunday after church. I did not use eat all the leftover cheese curls because I didn't want them to go to waste. I did not issue a challenge to my church members and offer a prize from the pulpit. I did not give my oldest daughter Ritz bitz crackers to entice her to stay in her room so I could watch the 24 premiere on Sunday. I did not ignore my conscience telling me to workout all last week. I did not get jealous when a friend told me he and his wife went out on a dat…
