Been a while.

February 28, 2009

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Here’s a quick catch up on what’s been going on here.

So far, the start of 2009 has been quite a time of reflection. A time to try and figure out what God has in store for me and my family. Ever felt like God has put you on a shelf for a while? I’ve had lot’s of time for these thoughts to run through my head this year. In some ways it’s been a good thing though. I think I’ve been given an opportunity to strengthen my walk and love on my family. Cadie is growing up WAY too fast and is such a beautiful little girl, and Zoe is about the happiest baby I’ve ever seen! I love coming home every evening to her smiling face. And I absolutely love coming home to my wife every night. July of this year will mark 14 years of marriage and I love her even more now than ever, if that’s possible.

I’ve really enjoyed serving in my church, behind the kit in worship, and in the children’s department. Some amazing people doing some amazing things with the kids.

Speaking of playing drums, I’ve slowly been getting booked for more and more studio gigs. I’m really excited about the whole studio situation and working with different people. It really stretches me musically and my love for the drums and music in general has a renewed fire. I’m starting to feel creative again!

And last, but certainly not least, I’ve got my sights set on taking my love of cycling to the next level this year. As money is incredibly tight right now, and my cheap Dekra road bike is starting to wear out with just over 1500 miles on it, I’ve been checking out possible replacements. I’m wanting to do the “jack and back” this fall for MS, it’s 150 miles over two days, and I don’t think ol’ Silver will make it. I’m hoping to figure out a way to get my hands on something decent this year and hopefully, by the end of the season maybe do some amateur level races. Definitely some group rides this year though.

So that’s some of what’s been going on here. What’s new this year with you folks?
