As I was making the 45 minute drive into the money maker this morning, there was quite a bit of ground fog out in our part of Texas. Driving along, getting closer to the busy streets, the big buildings, the traffic, the fog quickly disappeared. The sun was coming up and all I had on my mind was that the Son died so that I could make that drive this morning. So that I could live, breathe, fart, burp, work, play, love, laugh, hurt, cry, dance, stand, worship, pray, listen, talk, and the list goes on and on and on like a long Monday at the work place.

Then the phone call came in this morning. The phone call that I would miss. The caller left a message asking me to call him back as quickly as possible. This man, a man I have never met, held the news that I had hoped to one day hear: working a championship game at Kyle Field. The man, a football official over in Cowtown, called and asked if I would be interested in working some football games that could potentially lead to one of the biggest dreams I have ever dared to dream, calling a football game in Kyle Field. I was shaking, had goose bumps, sure I sounded silly, all because of a big dream. Now you may wonder what dreams of calling football at Kyle Field and fog have to do with each other: keep reading.

The Favor Of God has fallen upon my life so many times over the last couple of years, and strangely, it has been centered around officiating football. The Lord uses all things for good, the scripture tells us.

I was and still am completely flabbergasted by this opportunity and must make the most of it. You see, the way my eyes see things, life is all about opportunities. Opportunities presented to us from the Most Gracious God above. We are called to be His witnesses everywhere we go, whether it be home, work, a football field, we are given opportunities to fulfill our purpose on this earth.

I hope to make the absolute best of the potential opportunity and what it will take to make that happen.

Let the FOG roll in folks!

Peace peeps,

WE made it

I am alive for 5 years of marriage with The Pook! Our anniversary was great even after a crappy day at work! God makes all things to work together for His purpose kept running through my mind at work, just trying to make it by.

Last night after dinner, The Pook and myself took a little stroll through this very FANCY mall in Dallas. Everyone and I do mean EVERYONE, had an iPhone! Boy was I jealous! Even this little 3-4 year old girl had one with a pink cover on the back of it. What has this world come to when a 4 yr old knows how to manage her own iPhone. Ofcourse, The Pook made the comment which really made me lust after one even more about how everyone in that place had one, except for me! I was trying my best to hide my disappointment, and hopefully I did a fair enough job (did I The Pook?)

Anyways, my anniversary present to her has been little things like a trip to Warrenton (junkers, I know you must be proud of me right?), Six Flags season pass (what a great gift, huh?), and to top it all off, a really nice bouquet of flowers. I am not very creative or anything so I am sure The Pook knew some were coming her way. She did make mention that all the flowers in the arrangement were flowers in her bouquet on our wedding day! Surprised myself even with that one!

Ya'll, she was created just for me and the rest of her family and friends. We are all created for someone and for something. That's partly why God has us here, to fulfill His plan with us and to help fill the lives of those we meet with joy and happiness. The Pook has gone beyond that for me, and I am most grateful to Queen B and Dad for allowing me the great pleasure of marrying their precious gift!

Peace peeps,

Making Major, Major Love History this week

So, the last 5 years of my life have been spent married to the woman that God created for me, Misti Doniece Floyd Maddron (pookie, pookarella, roo, roo roo, babe, pook). The last 5 years we have experienced a lot for such a short period of time.

I don't want to be long so until I post more this week, SHMILY!

Peace Peeps!

Well, well, well

So here I am again, well over a year later after forgetting I even had this thing.

I recently joined a men's bible study and we have been meeting on Tuesday nights every other week. We were talking about Heaven and Hell and just how incredibly real they both are and what believer's and non-believer's have to look forward to. One verse really stuck out to me like it never had before. The verse is Revelation 20: 13 and says, "The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds."

You see, everyone will see what Heaven is like. On Judgment Day, believers and non-believers alike will "bow their heads in worship of Him alone". For a brief moment in time, those who have been cast to Hell for an eternity will get a brief reprieve only to face their judgment for deeds done and not done and be cast into the pits of Hell forever. For that brief period of time, and who really knows how long it will be, the Lost will get to see what "could have been" while the Christians await their turn at judgment as well.

It's not going to be easy for the lost person to recognize the reality of this verse, but truth be known, this should create a great urgency for Christians to reach those who might be cast into the pits for an eternity.

I would appreciate any feedback or comments that you may have on this verse or topic.

Peace out peeps!

Why I do what i don't want to do!

I was reading in Romans 7 this morning and although I knew the answer to the question I posed, it never hurts to have it slapped in my face from time to time. I do what I dont want to do because I was once controlled by sin. And without Christ as my release agent from sin, I would still be controlled by it. Does that mean that I do not sin, heck no it doesn't. Does it give me reason to sin, heck no it doesn't. Does it make sense that I sin, heck no it doesn't. But yet, I do it anyways. This is just another illustration as to why scripture seems so easy to understand and yet it is one of the most difficult things to comprehend.

Yes we are

I was lying awake lastnight in bed for what seemed to be hours albeit, 30-45mins max, just thinking about how I was created for worship. It was crazy nuts...I have had so many ideas running through my mind lately just on worship and it has carried over to the children. This is probably my mission in Kidz Zone. To develop an attitude of worship within 5-12 year olds. The dynamics can be very tough, but with the help of many great people, this task can be done. Just yesterday there was a student who is typically very shy and doesn't seem to be very outgoing and he was just praising away as he helped lead us in worship. I hope it catches on with other kids. There is so much to give back to God through worship, and hopefully one day, they will realize just as I did, we play for an audience of One!

Although my scripture reading doesn't just jump out and say worship all over it, my mind is drawn to it as I read and study what is happening in the text. I am reading through Romans right now and it is by far, not centered on the worship of God, but at the same time, it is. Our actions, our words, our thoughts, are all apart of our worship!
