can't believe I let this thing go for so long. Wow. There's a lot to talk
about. I just enjoyed nearly a week away from work. I spen time in Santa
Barbara for my sisters wedding to Julian and then went on to L.A. to see
my dad and go to Universal Studios. Of course Meghan came with me and
she got to meet some of my family which was really cool. We watched fireworks
from my uncle's house in the hills of L.A. It was quite surreal to actually
be looking down at the fireworks as opposed to up. We got to see about
15 different fireworks displays all at once. Pretty cool.
The biggest news for me is that Meghan and I got engaged! God has been
so good to me and I really feel His presence in our lives. It came without
any doubt that we should wed. We're moving plans along at a good pace
and keeping ourselves free of stress right now. The date is Jan. 4th,
though we're not sure of a location yet...we'll work on it and I'll let
Oh and the band, yeah...lol...we've changed in mid-stride. Im now on bass
permanently and we're a three piece punk band. I never thought the day
would come when we'd have to make a decision like that, but its fun and
it will allow us to take a step forward. First the step backwards though....writing
new material. In the meantime we're playing acoustic gigs just to get
the name out there. I feel like blabbing some more, but i've got some
things to do...so til next time.....blah!
nothing that can bring me down right now! Thats the best way I can describe
life. Im not quite sure why God has chosen to bless me so much recently.
The only thing I am sure of is that I dont want it to end and that I want
to keep doing things for Him. It really is encouraging. Risejudah's EP
is becoming more and more of a reality on a daily basis as we work on
it and throw things together. This weekend we're recording all the drums
and I'll probably do some temporary vocals too so that we can release
some demos to the site (www.risejudah.com).
Meghan continues to take up more space in my heart on a daily basis. I
really enjoy having her around and I love seeing her every single day.
Its really cool cause generally I cant do that with people....but with
her...I WANT to see her everyday. She's a best friend. She's a girlfriend.
She's a future. Hmmm....yeah that could get deep, but lets take this slow,
right? lol :). Recently we've been doing a bible study together and I
think it really helps that we do it together and with a group also. Allows
us to express ideals and to let each other know where we're at in life.
This weekend Megs, Dave, Jenny and myself are going to the Pop Disaster
Tour!!! Im really pumped about it. This is Dave's gift to me for my b-day.
Yeah, yeah...its coming up. Megs is taking me on a trip to www.sanysidroranch.com
, I can't wait til we go, look at it!!!! Its beautiful! Well...yeah...Im
gonna go now.......and dream.
Just had probably my best weekend since I moved to CA. Friday night I
went to another Golden State Warriors game and hungout with as very special
girl that I hold dear to my heart. Saturday night...RISEJUDAH played its
first live performance at a party! It went smashingly. I think we gained
the support of a lot more people. Nothing but praise came off of peoples
lips. Thank you God....risejudah is heading up! Sunday was another great
day for we broke the foundations on the RiseJudah EP. We began recording
and it sounds like this is going to be an awesome EP. Just for warmups
and fun...we all went to the driving range beforehand to enjoy the sunny
day. And perhaps something greater than continuing to pursue the dream...is
finding someone to share it with. You see...the very special girl....the
one mentioned earlier....the one that God has placed in my life, became
my girlfriend Sunday night! What a great way to end the weekend. I havent
had a girlfriend in a while and God has been working on me and the band
in my time alone...now apparently is the time to share it with someone.
Yeah. Great Rock n Roll, Great Girl, and a Great God.
