Killer Abs

Just remember, however, that no amount of any exercise will give you that coveted six pack if you have a layer of fat around your middle. You need to get your body fat down to about 10% or less before your abdominal muscles become visible. So be sure to consistently eat right and do a lot of cardio. I often tell people that the best exercise for abs is 30 minutes on the treadmill!

Christmas is coming!

Before I get into this post I want to explain this picture. I was looking for something on the Internet and came across this picture. Being that I knew its location I copied it onto my hard drive, and I was planning to post it along with its location onto Google Earth. Little did I know, but my sister actually took the picture and had I just read the name I might have known it. Here is where I found it. I could hardly believe it, but as I was showing my sister some pictures on my laptop I came across her picture. She was like, "That is my picture!" I really did not believe her until she showed me where she had posted it, and then I knew it was hers because that is where I found it in the first place. I LOVE YOU LIZ! Anyway, that is why I posted that picture. Now back to what I was going to write.

It is time to start planning for Christmas! Don't spend to much now, it is not worth paying the rest of your life just so you can swipe the plastic and buy the gifts. It is better not to go into debt unless you are able to pay it of at the end of each month. I learned that lesson years ago, and I am still in the process of reaping from the mistake of mismanaged credit cards. The funny thing is, is that I have not had a real one of my own in over 6 years and I still feel the negative effects of them.

On another note... Sarah and I did indeed go visit family for Thanksgiving in Illinois. What a trip that was; over 800 miles of driving just one way. It was cool though as I got to see family members I have not seen in so long. Some of the kids I had only seen in pictures. I took a trip down Memory Lane, all by myself, Friday evening. I walked around the Hawthorn mall first. After that I stopped into Portillo's for two beef hot-dogs, which tasted as good as I remembered. Then I went for a stroll, around the Target which I worked at for over a year. I was surprised as that place has become like a mega Target, even selling produce. It also had a Starbucks. On Memory Lane I then went back to Woodbine Cr. where our family grew up.

Finally I drove past my old High School, Stevenson. I found the whole experience to be quite interesting. I was also surprised that I did not see anyone that I knew. I was sure that I would find someone in the mall that I recognized, but not even a soul that I knew crossed my path. So here I am again, back in New Jersey in the best city ever, Newark. Newark, Newark, you know what makes this city so great? When you find someone that you can trust. It seems like everyone is a stranger here, and then it is like hey cool, I know that person, and I know they would not do harm to me if they had the chance...

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

I smell Kenya in the air

Wow, Thanksgiving is next week already. It looks like Sarah and I will be traveling to Chicago for the holiday. I have not been back there since our sister Rachelle was married around 4 or 5 years ago. It has been such along time, but perhaps it is now the right time for a visit. So in the title of this blog I wrote, "I smell Kenya in the air." What does that mean you ask? Well, I am having a strong desire to go there for about two years. I have been thinking about it all day. It has been a dream of mine to go for some time now, but it kind of just hit me this morning that I should start making plans to go. Another thing is is that I never really thought of staying there for that long, but as I was thinking about it more and more, two years seemed like a good enough amount of time. I guess the problem for me has always been the money. A big part of that also is that I have always felt that my debts held me back a great deal. However, now that I am nearly debt free, this dream of mine seems to have come to life and it does not look like it will let go of me until it has its way. I am not for sure yet, but it seems to me that perhaps next year I would be ready to go, all though the thought of waiting another year kind of bothers me. I may not have a choice though, and in that case it would be sencless to be bothered by this. Anyway, that is all I wanted to write. I am sure I will keep you updated. God bless you richly!

Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

A funny video

I am sorry, but I just had to post this video as I think it is hilarious and would be a shame not to share. I found it off of a guys website who has an extensive knowledge about blackberries. So without further delay, here you go;

Saturday Afternoon

I just finished here at the House of Mercy Mission. It is a little past 4PM. Today was a pretty good day. Started early picking up up the Donuts around 9AM. First the one in Maplewood then drove down Springfield Ave. to the Irvington Dunkin Donuts. After that I went into the Iron Bound section of Newark to the Teixeira Bakery to pick up bread from off the trucks coming in from their routes. I did not get much as it is the 1st Saturday of the month. Usually those who need assistance do not come into till the end of the month when they have used all of their public assistance money. I would guess about 50 pounds of bread, four bags, I picked up. As I had guessed about a low number of people coming in for assistance, I was correct. Probobly about 25 - 30 folks looking for help came in. With the Pastor's son picking up bread also from Panara on his way in and another fellow who faithfully brings in pastries on Saturdays, we had more than enough to give out to those coming to the service looking for help. Today, the Pastor gave a teaching about deliverance. Usually he saves that teaching till after service, on the first Saturday of each month. I recorded the message in MP3 format and am looking for a place to post sermons on the Internet. I could post one every time someone speaks if I find a good place and have the time to do it. I did a few more things, but that is all I really want to share. I am actually curious about how to do Podcasts for itunes and ipods.

I will lift my hands

Beloved, I love you so much, I would never do anything to hurt you. The future that I have for you is so great. Do you love me? Do you trust me? I am here waiting for you. My arms are stretched out to you, calling you. Do you hear my cry? I love you...
