Here are 9 things that I loved and I want to see them come back:
1. FUNDIP – Well, you can find this stuff in gas stations on back roads, but I want this stuff everywhere. When I do find it, I am happy folks.
2. Parachute pants – They are just more comfortable. Duh.
3. Rattails, moustaches and mullets – The y make me smile instantly. This would just make things better.
4. Manners – You remember those days. Where everyone said things like “Yes ma’am” and “Yes sir”. Ok, maybe you don’t.
5. Hymnals – I like scarf wearing worship leaders as much as the next guy, but sometimes I want to hear an organ while singing some hymns. I know I’m not the only one.
6. Light up shoes (for adults) – All the kids used to wear the shoes that light up, but what about the adults? Now these kids got the roller skate shoes. Just garbage.
7. Waterbeds – Everyone wants to feel like they’re sleeping on water.
8. Choir robes – They just sexy.
9. Dinnertime – Turn off the tv and make dinnertime, well family time as well.
I need your help finishing this list…
I have been thinking quite a bit about this certain idea lately. Someone gave me the challenge to have a goal that I personally could not complete in my lifetime. This of course would have to be something huge and something that would impact following generations. Yes, I want to leave a legacy. No, I’m not talking about the lyrics to Nichole Nordeman’s song, Legacy. That huge goal might be to start an orphanage, a foundation, a boy’s ranch, or whatever else there is…
What’s one huge goal that you have? It might even make you feel funny to say it out loud. That’s when you know it’s good.
So, my awesome friends over at LETGOdwork have their store back up and I have to say they have some pretty rad stuff over there. They make the best Christian shirts including the one I’m wearing in the above photo.
Go buy a few things from LETGO and make sure to tell ‘em jackalopekid sent you.
I’m sure somewhere along the way you’ve had writer’s block. I know I have. Here’s an easy cure that has worked for me, so it might help you.
Sometimes I forget that other people might like what I like to read.
Sounds simple enough.
People subscribe to blogs because of similar interests. So, I’m guessing you like Christian stuff, climbing, music, or random thoughts. I guess you could just be a friend stopping by as well.
If you’re looking for recipes this is probably not your place.

Today is the official start of fall, but this post really isn’t about the “winter, spring, summer or fall, all you have to do is call” seasons.
Today I’m talking about the seasons of life.
There’s a period of time where everything is going great. These are the amazing times. I love to dwell on these times, but who am I kidding?
There ARE times where everything is “ok” and life is bearable and then there are those times where quite frankly,
life just sucks.
Nothing goes right and things couldn’t get much worse. You don’t know where to turn. You lose your job, you lose your spouse, you lose your child, you lose your house, or something else out there that is just awful.
Some of those things listed haven’t even happened to us and we think being late to work or bad traffic makes our day the worst day ever. I dare you to tell someone who lost their job, that you running late to work constitutes as the worst day ever. Try it and let me know how that goes.
Of course, if a terrible thing happens to you early in the day your day can only get better.
So, today I just want to encourage you, if you’re stuck in what is the most difficult circumstances in life you’ve ever seen, keep pushing on. Share what’s going on so we can pray, stand together, talk or whatever else you need.
What season are you in?
I am a huge fan of many different life coaches out there. The main reason that I like their material is because I will be the first to admit I don’t know everything about managing the details of my life and these people seem to know their stuff. There I said it. I don’t know everything.
One of the assignments Tommy Newberry gives is to put your relationships into three different categories. They either get a “red”, “yellow” or “green” label. These relationships are pretty self explanatory.
The “red” relationships are those that aren’t beneficial to your life and that you most likely need to quit. The “yellow” relationships are those that you need to be cautious with and most likely need to spend less time with. And the green relationships are those that help you grow, help you achieve your goals and make you a better person.
Maybe it sounds a little harsh to you to weed out relationships with people that you have had long term relationships with, but it definitely has helped me get more from life by just surrounding myself with those that inspire me and push me to become better. Maybe there are some relationships you need to think about and reevaluate to see if they are beneficial to you, even if they have been long time friends.
Who is someone in your life that makes you a better person? What do they do to be such a great impact in your life?
So, we found out this big news last Monday and this video is exactly what scares me…;)
So, what has been your favorite thing about being a parent?
