Morning comes too early

Good day to you all. Last night, as I was falling asleep a 11:30, I remembered a commitment I had at work this morning...for 5:00 AM. Ugh. When the alarm went off I was hurting - and I still am. I had to go into work to make some changes on the network to help prioritize data flow across a small portion of the customer's network. It's the way of the future. With voice, data, video, internal, external and all kinds of other information being put across data networks (both private and public) and resources being pushed to limits to contain costs the day of just plug and play networks for corporate America is most likely dying a slow death. With the my mind being as cloudy as it is this Blog will be mostly a jumble of thoughts, but it will be good to clear my head. Carolina Panthers 29 - Chicago Bears 21 Man that was an exciting game to watch. It was especially fun to watch with my Army buddy Jim. We are not 'tight', but there are times when it really feals like God has brought us together for me to witness to him. He knows my faith and we've had some light hearted (and too short) talks. But I hope my witness to him has been how I've lived my life. If any who read this think of it, and the Holy Spirit moves in your heart for this man, please pray for him. He's a 'good' guy, but he is lost in light of eternity right now. --- oh, and before I forget. Before the game I did indeed go on-line and bought him the flag we had wagered. If nothing else I hope it is a memory trigger of something more than just me. "Hive's Deep" Well for lack of a better title so far this is what my latest sci-fi yarn is called. Right now all it is a list of "players" and a partial outline. Up until now only a few people know just how ambitious this project really is. My end goal is about 250 pages of a softback. I have no idea how many words this is, etc. (nor do I want to know - otherwise I will get discouraged) and since I have never had anything of this sort published before I have no delusions of grandiuer here. This project is more for me - sort of like this blog - than for the world at large. Thanks to all who have encouraged me thus far. My 'samurai handle' I had wanted to post something about my whole samurai theme (both here and elsewhere) but my mind is really cloudy and I will not do it the justice I truly want - so that will have to wait for another day. Ok, before this turns into a novel in its own right I am going to just publish what I have for today. May the Lord watch over and keep you all in His precious and perfect hands this day. My verse for today: Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. - Romans 8:26-27 esv

Well lets just say I look forward to seeing your book published and if it never makes it that far - I still look forward to reading it in some form.

You are doing great with the blog and I really do enjoy reading it!

Then I forgot to comment on the football game! Congrats on the win this past weekend! I do hope that the flag will be a reminder for your friend of many things and I will pray for him...
