“Top 10” for 2009

Ever find it interesting that news organizations will compile a “top 10” list of headlines at the end of the year, but at the end of the decade, they don’t consolidate their top 10’s into a top 100 list???

I’m not a news organization, nor have I blogged nearly enough on here to have a top 10 for the year, but I have done much reporting of things going on over the past year via Twitter and Facebook. So, as the year comes to a close, I figured I’d give you my own top 10 list for 2009: Read More…

Feed Jake

Relaxing with the Bar J

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? (Luke 12:6)

Even in hard times of life, I can be amazed at the Creation of God. He created the world and universe around us, yet He focuses His attention on this little planet we call Earth. He made you and me in His image, meaning we have a soul. In Genesis, we read that He gave man dominion over the earth, to take care of it, and even to have dominion over the animals.  Not that God is incapable of taking care of these things (He is the Almighty, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient). However, there is an interesting order.

I think that God put into us a concern for the things he is concerned about. He cares for the Luke and Matthew express His care for the sparrows. I would imagine He has a care for the other animals too.

Yesterday I received a call from Mom that Jake wasn’t doing well. He struggled to walk, he could decide on being inside or out, he didn’t even want to eat. Jake’s passing seemed to be near, and if I wanted to see him again, I should do so.

I got ready for my afternoon/evening job and headed out to Mom and Dad’s. As long as he walked slowly, he did fine, but if he tried to move quickly, his rear legs would give out on him. His countenance expressed that he was not well.

I got to pet him for quite a while. He rested his head on my right hand as I petted with my left. After a while, Mom noted that the droopy look he had for the better part of the last couple days had gone away and he had what seemed to be kind of a cheerfulness.

As the night progressed, his condidtion failed to improve.  This morning, Jake was humanely put to rest. He will be missed and his character was one that could always bring a smile to your face.

The Best of Times and Worst of Times Collide; Havoc Wreaked

Please note: This post is not intended to come across as bitter or in search of a pity party. I am merely expressing thoughts that I have muling about in my head, partly out of frustration; partly out of confusion; partly out of desperation; partly out of a desire to let others know what not to do. I am not trying to excuse anything. Read More…

A Natural topic for Post 501

So, International Niece’s Day is on the horizon, and I’ve just about nearly thrown myself into a fit of confusion over my niece’s age. She is in fact two years old, not three like I was about to type here. The thought of tomorrow being the third annual International Niece’s Day and this week being the second annual International Niece’s Week, which I started last year after missing the second annual IND, threw my brain for a loop. Hopefully, some of this confusion will wear off when I get older and/or get a wife.

But, this post is about none of the afore mentioned topics, although it is closely related to Macy. Read More…

Post 500: International Niece’s Week!

Wow! I’ve Finally reached that proverbial 500th post. I thought about doing a post about blogging, but then I remembered, I’ve got a holiday to commemorate. Then I remembered I had a big announcement that might be kinda neat to post here, but I figured having it in the next post would be more fitting. So, I’m back to the holiday. Read More…
