A Milestone in my life.

Not the fact that I started my own company.
Nor the fact that I will be starting a new ministry.

No the Milestone is 1000 posts on the .org baby!

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: A Milestone in my life.

Well, as some of you may know from my for sale ad I lost my job (that I held for almost eight years) about three months ago. After the initial shock I decided to take the Real Estate Course/Exam and the Contractor's Exam. I passed all the tests, incorporated and had to decide which direction I wanted to go. I chose to start a construction company and things have been going great. I enjoy the flexibility it affords me.

As for the ministry I am taking a Mentor-ship course for those with addictions to pornography. Having fought this battle and won thanks to God and to the coursework at Settingcaptivesfree.com I have the privilege of training as a mentor. I can't tell you what a burden is off my shoulders without that stuff on my mind 24/7. I shared my testimony (the short version) at prison ministry Saturday night and I found out I'm not the only one with this problem.

When I went for missions training ten years ago I found out that when they had the youth pastor's convention there was more porn ordered in the hotels that week than at any time before that. So it goes to show you that it's not a small issue. Any guys out there that disagree with porn being good or bad I didn't write this to point any fingers. I needed to get rid of a habitual sin that most definitely created a chasm between me and my Lord.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.
