Well Tiffany is doing good after the infertility surgery!!!

Thi sis Tiffany right after they gave her the drugs!! ha ha ha..... she is going to kill me for putting it up here, but if you woke up @ 4:00 am, haven't had anything to drink or eat...not even gum, and you just got a lots of drugs, I don't think you or me could look as beautiful!
(man I love my wife!)

Here is what the Dr. found out while fishing around in Tiffany:

1) little bit of Endometriosis on the Ovaries
2) Decent mount of gelatinous scar tissue behind the uterus (caused by reverse menstrual is the place that the eggs drop after the bleeding times)
3) possibly a little blockage in the fallopian tubes

The Dr. said that everything looked good now, and that he is hopeful and looking forward to the results that the next round of shots will provide. he was glad to know everything with what he is dealing with, and the results after this surgery are even better for most people than before it.. he seemed hopeful.

Thank you for your prayers and please keep them up!

(I will try to see if I can post the photos of the surgery just like last time, but until then please just pray for us and Tifany is heal up and take it easy for a few days!

Do yourself a favor and go buy the movie, "Once"

That is right I did not say rent, or even check out.. I said, BUY! This movie!

I just watched this movie that I rented via Netflix (and yes, as soon as I get some money I will buy it!)

But seriously, it is a date movie, musical, and tons of other words that would describe it as a chick flick, but I am telling you it is AMAZING! You would do wonders for your heart, mind, and soul to watch this movie. is shot like a documentary, and is rated R for the language (it is just like real life...crazy huh? heh heh)...but seriously if you have not seen it... you should not die without watching it!

yeah it is that good.... wow!

Ok and here is a quote from my friend Alan, who is quoting someone else that I just had to put up here!!!

Take it away Alan:

OK, please do yourself a favor and go read this. It's a fairly lengthy blog post by Fr. Al Kimel about our views of God's love, forgiveness, how we look at sin, etc. He's mostly interacting with thoughts expressed in a book by Dominican theologian Fr. Herbert McCabe. I've added a new book to my wish list now. Good stuff. It will be challenging for some to read, but it's good.

I snagged this particular quote from Fr. Alvin's post, just to wet the appetite...
"It is very odd that people should think that when we do good God will reward us and when we do evil he will punish us. I mean it is very odd that Christians should think this, that God deals out to us what we deserve. … I don't believe in God if that's what he is, and it is very odd that any Christian should, since there is so much in the gospels to tell us differently. You could say that the main theme of the preaching of Jesus is that God isn’t like that at all" (God, Christ and Us, p. 11)


AMEN! I used this quote today, and it was for me... thank you God for not giving me something that I think I deserve! You are THE God I serve...not matter the circumstance! Amen!

Oh and BTW: Alan has just started his own graphic Design if you need anything like that (web design, or business cards, or print material, or logos...he is your man)! Go give this guy some money so he can feed his family! Thanks! and God bless yall!

problems for my daddy! He needs your prayers!!

please pray for my father!!!

Last night we all went out to eat and on the way back we stopped at a Kroger. My dad went to use the bathroom, came back to the car, and told me he had a lot if blood in his stool. He then told me he probably needed to go to the emergency room. He told me to drive to the house and then maybe go to the emergency room. Well, on our way to the house he blacked out for 5-6 seconds, came to, and then started to sweat like crazy! We immediatly went to the emergency room, and he was admitted to the hospital last night @ 1:30 am.

So, now they are saying he will have a second colonoscopy (the first one was 12 days ago and they took two small polyps, (they did not think anything of them) today if the medican will fast enough you clean him out, and if not, then they will do it tomorrow very late.....

So, we as not sure exactly what is going on, but they want to go in there and find out where the bleeding is coming from.....

So yeah..... Please pray!!!! Love yall!

oh, and I baptized my little cousin this morning! It went well, except that my dad could not be there.

Merry Christmas! and Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

I miss birthday parties @ my Nanaw's house! Because every time anyone had a Birthday at my Nanaw's house, the birthday person always got money under their dinner plate, under their water glass, or even rolled up in the napkin! But the cool thing was that EVERYONE @ the table got money, not only the birthday person!!! So, I loved it when ANYONE had a birthday! ha ha ha...

but you know, it is like that with Christ. Here we all come to celebrate his birthday, and yet, when we show up, it is he that has these amazing gifts of love, acceptance, peace, joy, and grace! Everyone @ the party who knows him well enough to come (or even if you were just invited by a friend, he still gives you a gift! Everyone is blessed at this party!

So, welcome to the party! Happy birthday Jesus! And hey what did you get @ Jesus' Birthday party? I think this year I got a huge lump of love and grace!

Hey! Let me see what you got! Oh, and as you would guess, Jesus desires for you to not just keep the gift he gives, but to give it away to all those who decided not to come to his party!

Love yall! Merry Christmas!

THE HOBBIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

official press release:




Los Angeles, CA (Tuesday, December 18, 2007) Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson; Harry Sloan, Chairman and CEO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM); Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs of New Line Cinema have jointly announced today that they have entered into the following series of agreements:

* MGM and New Line will co-finance and co-distribute two films, “The Hobbit” and a sequel to “The Hobbit.” New Line will distribute in North America and MGM will distribute internationally.

* Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh will serve as Executive Producers of two films based on “The Hobbit.” New Line will manage the production of the films, which will be shot simultaneously.

* Peter Jackson and New Line have settled all litigation relating to the “Lord of the Rings” (LOTR) Trilogy.

Said Peter Jackson, “I’m very pleased that we’ve been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line. ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is a legacy we proudly share with Bob and Michael, and together, we share that legacy with millions of loyal fans all over the world. We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth. I also want to thank Harry Sloan and our new friends at MGM for helping us find the common ground necessary to continue that journey.”

“Peter Jackson has proven himself as the filmmaker who can bring the extraordinary imagination of Tolkien to life and we full heartedly agree with the fans worldwide who know he should be making ‘The Hobbit,’” said Sloan, MGM’s Chairman and CEO. "Now that we are all in agreement on 'The Hobbit,' we can focus on assembling the production team that will capture this phenomenal tale on film."

Bob Shaye, New Line Co-Chairman and Co-CEO comments, “We are very pleased we have been able to resolve our differences, and that Peter and Fran will be actively and creatively involved with ‘The Hobbit’ movies. We know they will bring the same passion, care and talent to these films that they so ably accomplished with ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy.”

“Peter is a visionary filmmaker, and he broke new ground with ‘The Lord of the Rings,’” notes Michael Lynne, New Line Co-Chairman and Co-CEO. “We’re delighted he’s back for ‘The Hobbit’ films and that the Tolkien saga will continue with his imprint. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Harry Sloan, who has been instrumental in helping us reach our new accord.”

The two “Hobbit” films – “The Hobbit” and its sequel – are scheduled to be shot simultaneously, with pre-production beginning as soon as possible. Principal photography is tentatively set for a 2009 start, with the intention of “The Hobbit” release slated for 2010 and its sequel the following year, in 2011.

The Oscar®-winning, critically-acclaimed LOTR Trilogy grossed nearly $3 billion worldwide at the box-office. In 2003, “Return of the King” swept the Academy Awards®, winning all of the eleven categories in which it was nominated, including Best Picture – the first ever Best Picture win for a fantasy film. The Trilogy’s production was also unprecedented at the time.

This is VERY GREAT NEWS!!!! I hope you share in my excitement! Funny that I just mentioned the Hobbit in my last post and then this today!!!
