This BLOG site is specifically about monarchy and my hope to be part of the greatest kingdom this world has ever known. I am a member of a group of revolutionists who seek to undermine and expose the depravity of the powers and principalities who seek to usurp my Lord's title and position. In preparation for the return of our True King I ask only that you assist me in sharpening my rusty sword for battle and reinforcing my armor for our defense. For his glory alone, your brother, the fireman.

Boss's and Birthdays

Well its been forever since I wrote my last BLOG but thanks to my wife's diligence (I love reading hers) I am back at it and I hope to pick up the pace a bit. In case you haven't read hers she's at Littleicelander@blogspot.com. Anyway I think I'm sort of jumping back to it so I can start venting a little more about life and what is happening to me. Today started out really nice. I slept in on my wife's birthday while she went to a great women's bible study. I enjoyed a really nice morning alone in the house. I watched two "episodes" of my 2nd favorite pastor(Skip) talking about the end of the world Mathew 24, Daniel ch 7, 2 Thes, and other passages https://calvaryabq.org/. During the first "sermon" I had two eggs sunny side up, two pieces of toast with really nice strawberry jelly and a cup of hot coffee. By the time that was over my food had settled and I was ready for some stretching so I broke out my yoga mat and ran through some exercises while Skip reminded me not to worry because God's in control of all that crazy stuff in the middle east....are guys allowed to do yoga? Well I'm a climber and a pilot so in my defense I haven't found anything else to keep my lower back from hurting so I guess I'm stuck with it until something better shows up. Anyway after that I pickup by good friend Dave's wife...no not literally, but she is kinda sweet with her little southern/ midwest drawl...anyway I gave her a lift to pick up her car which my buddy had left in the parking lot of our work. On the way there we had a really nice discussion about what a great boss Dave and I have (not so much) . I dropped her off went into work and from there the pain began. My job consists of putting out fires. Big ones, and little ones, smelly ones and booby-trapped ones. Fires and more fires, planning fires, controlling fires, building imaginary fires and then pretending that I can or sometimes can't put them out, that's what I do. Well lets just say that after six hours of meetings and scheduling these fires I finally took a look at my cell phone and guess who's call I had missed? Sara's. Its her birthday today and I haven't even said hi or hello to her and lets just say she wasn't very pleased with that. Well she had every right to be upset... so baby if you read this I love you I'm sorry for being so thoughtless. Anyway I started thinking about things on the way home from work and I think its time for me to start simplifying my life. Things are way out of control. I'm going to try to use this blog to keep my on track in my quest for a more peaceful and simplified life. I think I've bit off more than I can chew and I'm not going to just keep choking in hopes that my throat will get bigger. There just aren't enough years left in my life to keep throwing water on this nuclear meltdown that is my job....Please pray with me for wisdom and the courage to take a stand and reject the cares and worries of this world. Your brother the fireman,
P.S.
Boss if you read this I'm sorry that Amy and I were talking about you behind your back, but considering what a total prick you've been lately maybe this will help me out with the simplification process now.

Step 1 Admit that I'm over my head
Step 2 Figure out the quickest direction to shallow water
Step 3 Double check for currents and/or corral reefs
Step 4 Start swimming
