I am always blogging about my life and my family or my ministry, and even sometimes funny stuff. So I thought I would blog about my dog Reesie - Cup. She is an AWESOME dog. She likes to share my Twinkies and ham sandwiches. I don't worry about catching any germs from her when she eats off my spoon or drinks from my bowl. I know her mouth is clean because sometimes she eats cat litter and drinks from the toilet and we try to keep them clean.

Today, I experience that “Grace” first hand. A young man in my ministry became a member of the family of God! He was baptized today!! (Praise God!!) I am very proud of this young man. He worked hard on his packet and kept seeking answers. I think the highlight for me today was what he told me before I baptized him. “I want to go to Heaven one day.” Smart boy!!!

Well, after Bible study tonight, I came home and put Landon to bed, Cathy was sleepy and she went on to bed. Brady took his shower then he headed to bed. I was thinking of something to blog about. So I started thinking back when I did the “Finding God In The Lord Of The Rings” bible study.
This got me thinking about my pal Kayla, I told her I would mention her in my blog (ha-ha) her favorite character was Legolas. So I found this video of him.
I thought it was pretty cool.. enjoy girl!!!

Check this out. Cathy borrowed this movie called “The Illusionist”, we had it for about a week and I finally got a chance to sit down and watch it. Kayla, if you haven’t seen this movie yet you have too!!
This was a pretty cool movie. I was skeptic at first. But I sat down in my lazy-boy got me a soda pop and some snacks and went to watching. I must say, I was very pleased with the story and the special effects.
So all in all, I would give it “Two-Thumbs Up”
This is Lonnie……And…… this is Kayla……

Since today is Valentine's Day, I thought I would show this video. This movie (Aladdin) was the first one that Cathy and I seen on a date together as a “couple” back in 1993. I still remember how nervous I was to hold her hand in the movie. But I managed to "cool-ly" reach for the pop-corn as she did!!!.. I am such a Romeo!!!
So, Cathy and I went to Lexington today to visit this new little girl and the proud parents. It was a great trip, Cathy and I talked in the car and we ate lunch at “Backyard – Burger.”
When we got to the hospital and the birthing floor, we got our chance to see this precious little girl, she is so cute. And what is so very cool, is, we share the same BIRTHDAY!!! Oh and Abe Lincoln shares it with us as well.
So, welcome to the world little princess!!!

Today Cathy gave us a little scare. She was having contractions and she is only in her 7 month, so we headed to Georgetown hospital. They kept her for about 6 hours and monitored her. She was sent home with strict instructions not to do much of anything. So she is taking it easy for a couple of days till she goes back to the doctor on Wednesday and they tell us the game plan from there. She is doing fine thus far, resting comfortably and the contractions have stopped. But check this out, they did an ultra sound on our baby and they let me bring the video home. I placed it here on my blog so the world can see our baby… Alexander.

From Scorpion Death Lock to spiritual life
January 5, 2005Dove Canyon Films has released a direct-to-DVD production called "Sting: Moment of Truth" -- the story of the spiritual transformation of a world champion wrestling super star (Steve Borden, a.k.a. Sting). In this 96-minute dramatic reenactment of Borden's life, the role of Sting is played by Steve Borden himself. Special appearances are made by Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jeff Jarrett, Randy Savage, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Lex Luger.
Life was all one big act for Sting, who held the World title ten times in World Championship Wrestling including two wins over the wrestling superstar, Hulk Hogan. He created the most outrageous and bizarre personas he could imagine for his career in the ring. The first was marked by fluorescent face paint and buzz-cut blond hair.
In a later phase, he was a black-and-white "Sting" who descended on the ring from rafters hundreds of feet overhead. He once entered the ring by dropping from a helicopter. His trademark wrestling moves included the Stinger Splash and the Scorpion Death Lock. Stings ingenious re-invention of his character in the ring took him to the peak of the pro wrestling world.
On the home front, however, his marriage faltered on the brink of failure while he took the fast track in his wrestling career - and to a radical entertainer lifestyle. This eventually led to an addiction to prescription drugs. Because he often saw his wife, Sue, for only a day or two a month his world began crashing down.
Frustrated and confused, Sue confronted her husband. They had everything the world had to offer, and they were building their dream house. But their family life was in shambles. "What's happened to us?" Sue asked. "What's wrong with you? I don't know you any more. Steve, are you taking drugs or something?"
"I couldn't lie to her," Steve answered. He admitted he was taking muscle relaxants and pain killers regularly. And he was drinking every day. That confession was the beginning of a process that brought the prideful, self-sufficient wrestling champion to his knees. It was to be the greatest wrestling match of his life and God was taking him to the mat.
God had been planting seeds in Borden's life from the time he entered professional wrestling - his brother's conversion and witness, his sister's conversion, his family's prayers, the witness of wrestler Ted Dibiasi, and the peace and joy he saw in the lives of others who had been transformed by Christ.
Steve Borden today
Now, the confrontation by his wife he didn't want to lose, plus the fear of life without Garrett and Steven, his two young sons, made his fame and fortune worthless. He was humbled to the point of godly remorse, the kind of remorse reflected in 2 Corinthians 7:10 - "Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation..." (NIV).
That was in August 1998. Sting became a new man in Christ and his marriage was restored. Today, he drops Scriptures into conversation as easily and naturally as he once dropped opponents in the ring. He still loves a challenge. But where he once relied on a fluorescent face and shocking stunts, he now tackles each challenge with a firm faith in Christ alone.
Because of inclement weather this weekend Upward Basketball games were cancelled today. So I thought I would do some “hunny-do” jobs, like clean out the heater vents and maybe build something with my power tools.
Anyway I will have to wait till Landon wakes from his nap. That brings me to this video. I was surfing the You Tube and came across some “Sting” videos, (the wrestler not the former singer of Police) anyway I started thinking how me and my brothers would just sit and watch wrestling on Saturday mornings then act it out that afternoon. I remember being banned from watching it for weeks cause we would break something of my mom’s. It is pretty sad how raunchy and sexiest it has gotten over the years. I wish we could go back to the “old days” when it was fun to watch professional wrestling. So I thought I would post this video to remember the good times of Saturday morning and Monday night wrestling.

Then I wondered into the kitchen and got me a frozen sausage and biscuit patty and nuked it for about 30 seconds that is when it hit me. You know what I think is a cool toy, the Lite-Brite
Well that is all, thanks for calling.
