“Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman!”

So, “Anonymous” person, I am sorry but a good reporter like me and “Clark Kent” can’t really answer any question you might have about a certain post.
So "Anonymous" I am truly sorry. But please continue to post remarks and if you can, please add your name. If I know you, I will be more then happy to answere any question you may have.
So to be honest, there is a lot of reason why I choose Superman. I think the first thing is that he is honest and true to his word, that is something no one can take away from you. But I think the biggest thing he does is that he helps people. The kind of help that requires countless sincere amounts of “thanks you” and yet he doesn’t request it or requires it for his help. Just goes about doing what is right. Like another man I know. Ezra (from the Old Testament) he just did what was right. Didn’t expect a bunch of people saying “thank you.”
Plus I like the “similarities” of Superman and Jesus..(By NO means am I saying that Superman is Jesus) all I am saying is that I think it is pretty cool how they are similar.
Superman was sent from the “heavens” by his father Jor-El to save a dying planet
Jesus was sent from Heaven by God (his father) to save mankind.
Superman has three forms (or identities) Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman
Jesus has three forms Father / Son / Holy Ghost
El which is Jor – El and Kal – El’s Kroptonian surname is Hebrew for God
Well anyway.. Thought I would clear the air..

I previewed the new “BibleMan” DVD today. This one was pretty good. They had more “bonus” materials this time, like bloopers and music videos. I am still reading the book
“Lights In The Sky & Little Green Men- A Rational Christian Look at UFO’s and Extraterrestrials” it seems really interesting..
But I want to leave you with a cool quote from my good friend (Lois Lane).. I tell you what; this is some good advice if you have any daughters. And even BETTER advice if you have sons (like I do).. Thanks Lois for the words of inspiration..
Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

So I have been keeping busy by eating a delicious stuffed pepper, then I did some Bible study, now I am working on my blogg and listening to some tunes on You Tube.. I just got done hearing and seeing Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer”.. (Man, I loved the 80’s)! I guess when I get done here I will send my homie Lois Lane an email.
(Ohhhhh we’re have way there.. Oh Oh living on a prayer!!) Got a love Bon Jovi!!
He flies in this video…
Whelp I guess I will think of something else to blog about!!
Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars

Today I went to take a shower.. But first I had to remove
1) a rubber ducky
2) a “Lighting McQueen” car/bubble bath
3) a toy hammer/screw driver
4) a toy Navy sub
5) a infant blue bathtub
6) an inflatable mattress for the infant bathtub
7) a Spiderman action figure
8) a “Carebears” Sunshine bear shampoo bottle
I went looking for my bar of soap (dove, cause I have sensitive skin) but because we have a “pre-teen” boy in our house I had to move his “Axe” brand body wash, But you know what, I kind of like the idea of “family”

Oh the sweet sounds of memories and Garth Brooks, as we danced the night away under the plastic hanging stars of the Spindle Top Plantation in Lexington Ky. Then the romantic moonlit carriage ride through-out the grounds of the aging settlement, the time of togetherness as two shaking, nervous hands become one.
I am reminded of a quote from a song…
“You’re a princess, chains around you, I’m a hero who just found you”
Then the best part of the night….
Driving to Arby’s for some Cheddar - Roast beef sandwiches!!!
Boy I love Arby’s Roast beef sandwiches.
(You thought I was going to say the “kiss-goodnight”)

Anyway, while I wait, I thought I would share with you some thoughts for the day.
I like M*A*S*H, it is one of my favorite TV shows. I think I am going to save up some money and buy the series on DVD (hint to anyone who would like to buy them for me)
I think my favorite on the show is Maj. Frank Burns. He is so funny. I remember how Trapper and Hawkeye would tease him and he would say something smart like. “None of your bees whacks!” ha ha loved it.
Well that is all

In the movie “National Treasure” it suggests that there is a “great and lavish treasure” within the walls of this nation. And that our fore fathers “The Masons” left clues for us to follow. Is this Hollywood recreating history? Or History “creating” Hollywood?

It is around 12:20am on a Sunday night. I was up with Cathy as she was feeding Alexander. She is back asleep now and I am thinking about some things. As I sit here just thinking. I am brought back to when I took over the Student Ministry at Antioch Mills. That was way back in January of 2001 and now it is April of 2007 and I am the new Minister of Family and Children. It is hard to believe I am working towards my 7th year here at Antioch. I seen a lot of Youth Ministers come and go through out Harrison County and other surrounding counties. I have seen a lot of changes take place and lives changed some for the better and some for the worse. And as I was thinking about all that something popped into my head.
I had a friend of mine stop by today to hang out and see Alexander (I won’t give the name, don’t want to embarrass them) Anyway, this friend of mine and myself were checking out You-Tube and watching some funny things like “Goofy Cheerleaders” and “The Star Wars Kid.” But then something after that caught my attention. My friend showed my their “My-Space” page and as I was reading my friend’s “likes and dislikes,” it came to the part that asked you to “list your heroes” As I was reading how my friend’s heroes were Jesus and their family I noticed that my friend put “Lonnie Love” as their hero.
I was blown away!! I knew me and my pal were friends but I had know idea I was a “hero” in their eyes. That made me feel so special. It is funny, you go through your daily chores of life, trying to make this rock, this spinning sphere of fun and adventure bearable and live a Christ like example and when you least expect it. You become someone’s hero…
Thanks Lois Lane……
So, why the title “The Rock Says?” Well I like the Rock he is one of my favorite movie stars/ex-wrestler. And I have his book, The Rock Says here in front of me on my desk.
Well, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
“IF YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE ROCK … IS .. COOKING!!!!

We get to the hospital get her comfortable and around 11am she had Roger Alexander Love. He weighs 7.1 pounds and is 19 inches long.
Both mom and baby and doing fine.
After time with Brady and Landon over dinner with just daddy, we headed to see their new little brother. They are excited!
Can’t wait to bring him and her home.

It’s pretty awesome how she made it. I will post more about the wild party next time.
You can eat everthing except the plastic animals, rail-road crossing and the number 2 candle

You know, chops can be quiet dapper. You can, if you want, connect them to a mustache or even a “chin-less” beard.
So to my friend and all the people all around the world, take from me parents just don’t understand.

The best part was in-between innings, they would play music, and I got to get up and dance!
I hope I made ESPN.. ‘Cause I had some AWESOME moves.. I should be on Soul Train.

I received a couple of encouraging emails from some friends of mine tonight (thanks Cindy and Margaret). It was really nice to see that people do care what I do. I know I am a goofy person a lot of the times. But I also know that God has given me a gift. The ability to reach lost souls with humor and honesty, I know I am not a gifted writer or speaker. And I know am definitely not a singer. But to hear people tell me they appreciate what I do for their children makes me feel just as special. With that in mind, I found this video from a movie called Casper the Friendly Ghost. I like the song and I thought it would be cool to post it and say, “Thank you to everyone who reads this blog and I am glad I can make you smile. PS. I think this is going to be the week. Cathy went to the movies with her friend and everyone says you have a burst of energy before it happens.
We will see!
After that we became the best of friends. I left Germany in April of 91; I didn’t think I would ever hear from her again. And 12 years later she called me up out of the blue. And we continue to email to this day. So, to my good buddy Margaret. “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!” Oh, and thanks for reading my blogs and making them your “favorites”, who knows, maybe one day I will turn all this into a book called…”Love – Letters”
Anyway, White Cloud has been real good to us. They are pretty cheap, but not cheaply made. They can hold a lot of doo-do and a lot of chewed up crayons and others things that the boy may eat. But Pampers have such cute and adorable commercials. So you see my dilemma. Oh what to do, what to do!

I ate two of them back to back.
So later on before Cathy went to bed, I was telling her about it. I was saying. “Wow, Cathy, it is funny how we think that we are so much smarter today then we were back years ago. We think cause we been to the moon and have the internet we are in a higher class.” She said “Ok?” She didn’t get what I was meaning. So I tried it again. I said, “No, Cathy, I mean, isn’t it cool how they made those Great Pyramids and The Great Wall of China and other things with out modern tools. Can you imagine building something with out any technology?”
Just then she looked at Alexander growing in her and said with a grin, “Yea, I can sort of imagine that!”
