My blog is reborn. Still not designed, but a fresh start was needed. Why? Because the past can have too much power over us, it can provide lessons but it can be something if we hold on to can bind us up and chain us to the past – and I’m not talking just bad things, I’m talking lost in the good things that have since past, I smile at much of my past that has been contained previously in this blog, but its time for those thousands of moments to be put to rest, and let be the past so as to move towards the future.
Philippians 3 (NIV)
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
I have a pretty awesome future ahead, and some of that is thanks to learning the lessons of my past, but things have been changing and while some days are a challenge, its not anything that doesn’t refine me, and build me into even a more refined “CHUCK” 🙂 and that’s one thing I’m making an effort to reflect here – the site used to be entitled “Random Ramblings of a Crazed Nerd” and there was a time that fit, but I’m changing and a “Nerd” is only part of who I am, but this blog I want to be come something thats a blessing and a encouragement and a more clear example of who I am overall – It’s going to be about my life, and my journey through it.
So what’s going on? Change. Lots and lots of it! Things in my life have been amazing! I’m not going to lie there have been rough days, we all have them! But through those things furthering a more refined version of the Chuck who God is making me to be, so I can’t complain about the results I just look forward to what the finished product will be!
Things are moving forward, my relationship is happy, building & growing, my business has some momentum, my faith is getting stronger and stronger, and I’m looking forward to a future and a journey with happiness and people that are going to bless my socks off and I theirs! So this blog is going to be something to really just Praise God for what’s going on in my life and hope that it will be an encouragement to others.
I hope you’ll stick around, I hope you will still check in for updates, and trust me those are going to be changing to a format that was used off and on in catch-up posts in the past and I may adopt a more refined version of that too likely using various post formats to post assorted things like images and such which I find uplifting, as well as begin using my own storage for sharing photos vs. some online services, not to mention video blog or two 🙂
For now I’m going to wrap this up, I have a video to get up and online for FlockHosting and some laundry and cleaning too! (Probably should eat something soon too) But stay tuned, going to have some options too for subscribing to updates as well as cross-posting to Facebook/Twitter so folks who desire can keep up with my life and this journey I am on – I leave you with a photo of me and my nephew from a recent beach trip as we climbed a big rock we celebrated our victory 🙂
