90s Christian Music

90s Christian Music

My Life
So Spotify suggested a playlist for me of “90s Rock” and that made me think. I wonder if there is a 90s Christian playlist already currated for me. Well, my friends there is! https://open.spotify.com/user/maranathamusicofficial/playlist/0lkb5xt01Cg442fHAu32mK?si=Plyj_fxaSL-l8JF9ryXPAQ When I hit “Big Fish” by FFH I almost lost it. My kids looked at me like I was crazy while I sang along with the do do do parts. I plan to be out of the house before “Dive” comes on because I don’t think they can handle seeing my reactions. (I just hit “What if I Stumble” while looking for an image for this post. I am all the way back in the 90s now)

As I sit here in my office I am about 30 minutes away from Marshal County High school. This morning there was a shooting there. A student of the school showed up with a gun and shot at his classmates killing 2 and injuring several others. In the past 6 months there have been several other shootings at schools including on in Italy, TX that happened yesterday, that I hadn't even heard about until today. Right now it is 2:02 and I, like so many other parents, am counting the minutes until school gets out so I can see my kids and give them a big hug simply because I still can. As I sit here one thought keeps coming into my head. "This is why I do what I…

Snow Days!

Snow Days!

My Life
 I have been working to add some new stuff to Nailscars.com ever day again, but I am currently in the middle of a snow weekend which looks like it is going to move into a 5 day weekend for my boys. This means I have been spending more time at home and less time sitting in front of a computer. I have a few new things I am working toward, most of them are Good Friday Worship Experience related, but I have a few other things I want to put together too. Hope you are having fun and staying warm if it is winter where you are.

Days Off

Days Off

My Life, Random Thoughts
One of the cool things about my job is that I get a day off in the middle of the week. My pastor takes Fridays off so I take Thursdays as my day to rest. That works great for me because my whole week sort of revolves around our Wednesday night event and on Thursday I am normally tired and ready for a break. On those rare days that I end up working on Thursdays I don't normally get as much done. Today my wife and I went to watch a movie (one of the perks of having kids in school) which started at 10:40. We are officially old people. We watched "The Greatest Showman" and even thought it has very little in the way of actual history in it…

Music Before My Time

Music Before My Time

My Life
OK, there are three things that all came together to create this idea in my head and they are: I bought Rocksmith to help me learn to play some lead guitar (it is wicked fun btw) My son wanted to break the Lego Rock Band drums back out and started playing again Firfirey, the Ethiopian student living with us thinks that no "teenager" knows old songs that I sing on the radio. Anyway, so all of that led me to putting together a playlist of classic rock songs that I can listen to when I am with my boys. I was thinking of it as sort of a rock and roll education. Which is important as there really isn't any rock and roll anymore. It has morphed into pop and…
