So thanks to my sister and verizon wireless I am now in the year 2008. I can now blog from my phone. Although it is easier to type on my laptop, this will be fun and maybe even a bit more real time. So thanks for continuing to read my blog. I will try not to dissapoint. Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
Something made me a bit perplexed while driving home from Small Group tonight. Here I am enjoying life, enjoying the music on the radio, and minding my own business. I merged on to 75, where I had a clear path to the lane because a semi-truck switched lanes for me. About 3 minutes after I was on the highway, I looked into my rearview mirror to see an SUV flying up on me flashing it's lights... that's weird... Just as I'm confused they switch lanes and pass me. As they pass me the driver decides to show me his I.Q., with his middle finger. If I was confused before, I'm totally confused now. What did I do?? So to ask him this question I decide to flash my lights a couple times. He did not like that, he got back in front of me and continued to tap his breaks. Now several things are going through my mind like; seriously what did I do?, who is this guy in front of me? and I hope he finds God soon. I gave him his space, because remember, I was enjoying my life and my drive. Mr. I.Q. of one finally exits the highway at 380. As I pass him of course I look over at him and she confirms his I.Q. once again. Dude must have had a bad day... So here's the deal, was I confused or do you think he was confused. I mean how many silver Honda Accords are there, maybe another one gave this guy a hard time and he decided to take it out on me. Anyways, I hope he feels good about himself. I couldn't get a photo of him so I am leaving you with a photo of a guy just like him... we like to call him Mr. I've had a bad day.
Tonight I stopped and picked up dinner at Pei Wei for Lisa and I. The food was very good. Of course I had to open my fortune cookie as soon as I was done. The cookie was tasty but the fortune left me a bit confused. "Failure is the mother of success". WHAT?? I've heard that failing to prepare is preparing to fail. That makes sense, but failure being the monther of success...now I'm stumped. What does this mean to you?
Is it just me or is 2008 flying by? I remember Christmas like it was yesterday. Today is already June 13th. 5 Months gone and the 6th one is almost half over. Where does all of the time go? If we are not careful entire days and even weeks go by before we even notice. When was the last time I blogged? Yesterday right? Nope, even though it feels like it. Is it good for time to fly? I don't think so. Anyways, I just can't get over the fact that the year is almost half over... are you a bit depressed now? Sorry.
Driving to work today I passed by the Y.M.C.A. and noticed something I had completely forgotten about. I saw some little kids bouncing a ball back and forth. It took me two seconds to realize what they were doing. These kids were playing one of my all time favorite playground games...Four Square! http://www.gameskidsplay.net/games/ball_games/foursquare.htm. I loved this game growing up. So what I'm thinking is a 4-square tournament needs to happen soon. Any takers?
My name is James Burgess. I have a beautiful wife of a little over 8 years named Lisa and a baby on the way. We are both busy with work and school but find as much time as we can to be involved in church and hang out with our great friends. I hope the things you read here will inspire, educate, or just entertain!!
