I'm tired of making up titles!

Yes, I know everyone is mad at me for not updating you on everything, but in my defense, it has all been moving at a million miles per hour. I graduated, got married, got a job, and got a dog in like 4 days! Not really, but it felt like that.

I hope you enjoyed the video of the
apartment, feel free to watch the tour if you missed it.

Married life is great. And I'm sure (I hope so) Jenni would say so too. It's great having your own place. You get to decorate how you want, eat what yo
u want, light candles (at ORU we couldn't have candles), and more!

I'm actually more fit now than I was before I got married. I knew it would be like that too because I was too busy with homework and stuff to workout before. Now, I just work all day (which I love) and come home, eat dinner and either go for a bike ride with Jenni or a jog with Jenni, or a walk with Jenni and

Oh, you haven't met? Templeton is our dog. He is a terrier mix from the SPCA. He is probably the most personable dog I have ever met. He's smart, he loves to be pet and rubbed, he's energetic, he doesn't shed, he barely barks, he doesn't smell... he's just great!

Changing lanes... for those of you that don't know, I'm an editor for the OklaTravelNet. Actually, I believe the real title is "Craft Editor." I do a lot
of clean up, not full edits, and I'll upload the videos to the website, prepare them for uploading... a good mixture of stuff.

I really, really enjoy my job. There are great people at work and it's also very interesting stuff. The OklaTravelNet(.com) is a broadband online show about travel and tourism in Oklahoma. We have a live show everyday, but enough
archived video to keep you busy all day.

I just want to say that I am, and Jenni... I guess I'll just say that we are both, just so blessed. I mean, we had a great wedding, great honeymoon, a great apartment, a great dog, I have a great job, we got new bikes, and just so much other stuff.

We want to thank everyone for everything they did for us and our marriage. With the wedding money, we bought new bikes, a great full set of living room furniture (love seat, sofa, 2 glass end tables, glass coffee table, and 2 lamps), graduation money got me a brand new HDTV... just so much stuff!

More on being blessed... I also found a coupon in the back of the "Apar
tment Guide" book that said $300 off our first months rent! That brought rent down to $270 for our first month! What a blessing! Also, I got a new cell phone, for work mostly, that they pay for most of it! It's really cool, it's the Helio Ocean. I just got it yesterday. But see what I'm talking about! God is so good!

I have to say that this really comes from tithing with a good heart. Jenni has taught me to be a good tither and there is something in that that just makes all the difference in the world! There have been some really great sermons at Church On The Move that reminded me a lot of what my Dad has talked about in the past that helped me to understand tithing.

I am also blessed to have such a great family. Both immediate and extended. My parents have taught me many things and the number one thin
g has always been, trust in God. My Dad gave me some Bible verses that I have been meditating on over and over. Here they are:
- Proverbs 14:12: There is a way that seems right to a man but i
n the end it leads to death.
- Proverbs 16:3: Commit the LORD whatever you do and your plans will succeed.
- Proverbs 16:9: In his heart a man plans his course but the LORD dete
rmines his steps.


I promise that if you go over those verses, new things will open up to you. The Bible also says that you are to be in the world and not part of it and I notice that that is my main witness. I don't just jump in peoples faces and say I'm a Christian, but already, people at work know there is something different about me. I don't drink, I don't curse, and I let that be my witnes
s. I don't condemn people for doing those things either.

But I have noticed that when I put the Lord first, and my wife second, great things happen. Really amazing things.

Well! I hope that was long enough for you! As a treat for reading the whole
thing, enjoy these pictures! Take care!
