blogging, family, Kaia, Mateo, update
family, letting go and letting god, parenting, photo-blogging, photography
I’m up late tonight and got a chance to cruise through some blogs. It has been months and months, but I haven’t been totally absent from the “cyber-world”. My hope is to turn this blog into more of a photoblog, but lately my pics have stayed in Flickr, along with the info related to them. I say all that, because if your like me, whether I know you well or just your kid from EN, I love seeing God do his thing in family’s lives. And what I mean by that is that adoption affects so many people. Mine did…my kid’s did…and I have been reading how yours does. I realized, I’m not a Facebook guy, so I let my camera be my “voice” about this last year of my life, and the Flickr site has some of that, so check it out. I surprisingly haven’t shot as much video as I thought I would…I think because it just takes to long to process.
Anyway…all that to say, I learn from others (you) and have a lot to share about what God is teaching me. My children and family seem to be the medium of God’s teaching lately, but more to be revealed. Peace. Here’s a couple pics of Mateo and Kaia last month at my buddy’s wedding.

blogging, family, gods will..not mine, living life fully
Easter, family, life, Mother's Day, Pastor Pope, recovery, recovery513, Wedding
So I wanted to post something quickly because today is 5/13 as in recovery513. I can’t let this 5 year anniversary go by without stating openly my gratitude to anyone that reads this blog. Being clean and sober for 5 years is a big deal and each day grows more and more gratitude, as life gets better and better. Unfortunately not easier, just better. So there I said it, THANKS! OK, 7 minutes til 5/14…whew!
Here are some upcoming posts that have some fun pictures involved. I’m running a little behind lately, and have a hard time keeping up. My life is sooo full.
1. Easter with the kids
2. Pearlie’s 1st Mother’s Day
3. more on 5/13/2009
4. My nephew’s wedding (Friday, 5/15/09)…and guess who’s performing the ceremony. Yep, yours truly. How crazy is that? You have got to see these pictures. Shoot, I, have got to see these pictures. Wish me luck. Maybe I’ll change the name of this blog to “The Rev Jeff speaks”…OK, maybe not.
See I told you my life was full…Stay tuned! Peace!

Mr. Pujols, if your nasty!!!
This weekend was a great weekend if you are a Cardinals fan. It was Cards v. Cubs. The 1st 4-game series between these to two divisional/league rivals was cut short Sunday due to rain in Chicago, but it did nothing to take away from the intensity between these 2 teams. Thursday the Cards started off strong with a 7-4 win followed by 2 late inning comeback wins by the Cubs, Friday and Saturday. Who knows what would have happened today…my guess, more of the same drama.
Mateo warms up and is ready if the Cardinals call.
