My hope is change

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. That’s my fault. I’ve been doing my best to try and keep up with everything that goes into being a full time singer/songwriter while still keeping up with my family, day job and volunteering at church.

Needless to say, I kind of lapsed on being current here as well.

But that’s about to change.

I’ve been trying to re-evalutate recently what everyone does on a daily basis whether we know it or not. We choose to do what matters to us most. Granted that choice maybe what we think matters and not what actually matters. I’ve fallen into that trap quite a bit.

So I’ve been working to work on things that matter and let the things that don’t fade off into the sunset.

My hope is that as I continue to live and breath I become better at what I think really matters. I want to be a better Follower of Christ.

I’ll admit, I fall short more often than I’d like to admit. But I’m working to change that.

I want to be a better husband. My wife knows I struggle at times and I fall short there too.

I want to be a better father. My kids can’t say it in words yet, but I know when I fail them too. That’s actually probably the easiest to pick out as they can express things far deeper without using words at all.

As we get to be older adults I feel like we have this uncanny ability to ignore some things that are blatantly obvious to kids. I think that’s why Jesus told us to come with child like faith.

My hope is that things don’t have to stay the same and they won’t, as long as we don't let it.. :)
