Blog First

We all use a lot of social / content sharing services where we share a lot of personal data. Sometimes we forget those platforms can shut down overnight leaving you with no way to get back the data. 

From today on I’m blogging and then sharing data with other services. My blog becomes the central source of truth.

WordPress gives me peace of mind. I know my content belongs to me and that I can move it to others service should I need to.

What I do have

Today I turn 30. I woke up and my first thoughts were those of gratitude, which immediate turned into thoughts of empty mess and sadness.

The first few minutes I thought about what I don’t have. How many things I didn’t accomplish and how many things I’d like to have, but then I realized I’m already amongst the top percentage in the world because of the the things I do have:
So today and for the rest of my life I want to reflect on the thing I do have. The will be the fuel that drives me to make a great impact:

  • A loving Heavenly Father who gave his only Son to die for me and I’m not ashamed of my faith.
  • Health
  • An amazing wife.
  • A baby boy on the way
  • A family that love me
  • Growing up in a fully functioning family
  • Having a place to work at and earn a living
  • Being able to work from anywhere 

The list can be even more elaborate and this blog post is raw( unedited) but I need to get into the habit of publishing more often.

Thanks for reading!

I believe there is a Creator

If you’re reading this as an atheist or and agnostic thinker please know that this comes from a personal place.

There is one and only one reason: The systems we see in nature and even our own bodies are so well defined that I can’t think it to be random. The way in which our organs work as a cohesive system, can it be random?  Everything I look at in nature hints some sort of intent this is why I believe there is a Creator.

Do things go wrong in nature? Definitely, but is that the majority? 

Now on the word believe. I use this  cause there is no scientific proof. Hence I believe ( not I can prove or I have scientific evedince ) I believe is a deduction based on personal observations.  The very word believe says we can’t prove it ( yet )

Technology and Science may never be able to prove a Creator exists or point Him out in nature.

I believe all things were created. Though things created can evolve that may just have been by design.

I don’t judge anyone on their journey and I hope that those In search will find truth and peace. I respect your choices but also ask that you respect mine.
