1"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. 2In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am"

Trust God in everything. His plan for every one of us is perfect. Like Jesus said, " If it were not so, I would have told you". God will never fail any one of us. God loves us all the same!

Remember to thank God, our Father in Heaven, for Jesus Christ. Christmas is really about the greatest gift of all and that is Salvation through the Son of God, Jesus. Without Jesus, there is no hope at all for our way to Heaven. "No one comes to the Father but through Me (Jesus)". That's means that if we don't accept Jesus as our Savior, then We can't go to the Father. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Let's remember what Jesus did for us.

Merry Christmas to you all and Happy New Year.

Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

Be kind and be reasonable to others. Satan will do anything to get you to be angry or resentful to others as trap. To avoid the Devil's trap, be kind, be loving, and be wise in God's Word. Ask God in prayer to help all of us to avoid the devil's trap and to help us love one another just as Jesus loves us.
"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother."

The real test of our Love for God is how we treat the people right in front of us as our family memebers and fellow believers and non believers. We cannot truly loves God while neglecting to love those who are created in His image.

The Shepherds and the Angels] And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Praise God! He gave us the Son! God gave us the way, the life and the truth and that's Jesus Christ our Lord. Whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life! That's to me, is the greatest gift of all and Jesus paid the highest price for us and that's His life. Let's thank God for the wonderful gift and praise Him for it.

Wow, Christmas is getting here sooner than we thought! Time sure goes by fast. One thing I know for sure is that my family and I are blessed to have Jesus Christ in our home. He's the only Truth, the Way, and the Life that will make our home a happy Home. Without God, our home, our lives, and our feelings will be miserable. It's important to me as a father to teach my children the love of Chirst and as a Husband to share my love of God with my wonderful wife, April. Christmas isn't about worldly gifts, it's about giving thanks to God our Father for sending the Messiah to the world so that we may be saved through His grace.
John 3:16-21
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
The best Christmas gift that God gave us is the Son of God or the "Light". Believing in Jesus and accepting him as our personal Savior is the Best gift God could have for Christmas :) And His gift for us is eternal Life through Jesus Christ and the cost of that gift is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, whom God have sent to us in this world, to die for our sins so that we may have a way to Heaven. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!.

Have a very Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Good morning and sorry for not posting as much as I should! I have just been ordained as a minister and also just recently became a Community Outreach Chaplain. So many blessings have been given to us by God and I am thankful. I have alot of studying, praying, and learning to do as a Man of God. My wife is also a blessing to me because she gives me 100 percent support and she's proud of me.

Matthew 6:15 SAYS "But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. "

No matter how much or how bad this person have hurt you or trying to destroy your life, we should all forgive them becasue God won't forgive us until we forgive them first.

We had a great day today! A great friend of ours, Ms. Lane came over to our home and had a great time with us. We talked about God, the Bible, the life, and many other things. It's very hard to find a good friend like Ms. Lane and we are blessed to have her as our family friend for 3 plus years!
Mother and Daughters

Sweet miracles were given to my wife,
When least expected from God.
Out into the world they came,
Mother gave birth to two beautiful girls.
Their sweet scents increased in the atmosphere,
They were twice the blessings.
Their eyes were brown like father's eyes,
But their smiles were like mother's.
The oldest daughter's hair was curly,
And the youngest daughter's hair was wavy,
Like they were two different flowers
But their beauties were equal in God's eyes.

My Life as A Man
I am a father to my daughters.
My daughters wants me to hear but
I can only smile and say "I am sorry",
I can only talk with my hands.
My wife knew how I felt
Because she lived in the World of Silence.
I knew how sad they were,
But at least they know they're loved by us and God,
And sometime that's enough to help them smile and say "I LOVE YOU TOO".
They asked me "Daddy, does your leg hurts?"
I said "No, it doesn't".
I am sure you all were probably wondering"What happened to his leg?"
I am an amputee, deaf, and speech impaired,
but God had made me a warrior that He can count on.
Just because I am disabled,
Doesn't mean God can't make me a Warrior,
He will use me if I have TRUE FAITH IN HIM.

Why Me?

Why me God?
Did you make me deaf or an amputee?
Why me baby?
Did you loved me despite my disabilities?
Why did my two daughters loved me as I am today?
Why me Lord?
The answer are:
Because God wants me to be strong despite my disabilities,
And to love a wife
And to appreciate the children that God gave me.

Two men were occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service where they had been on vacation.Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his life would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the scene.One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn't hear the band he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it for himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."Epilogue...There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy. GOD IS AWESOME! NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE CHILD OF GOD! MONEY CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS BUT THE LOVE OF GOD CAN BRING ALL THE JOY IN THE WORLD!

Hello and happy November! This is the month where we should be thankful to God for everything! Well, actually, we should thank God everyday. I have just been ordained to be a minister to the deaf and hard of hearing. I will be working on my doctor of divinity and maybe on pastoral counseling as well. So you can see that I will be quite busy! The girls dressed up as Hillbilly Dixies for halloween and they were so cute! They had some cookies, toys and candies so they couldn't be any happier LOL.

My wife have been a great support in everything I do. It's a blessing to have her as my wife and my partner in my life. God has blessed me with a God fearing woman in my life and I am grateful for that.

My great needed prayer will be wisdom and strength. I will be facing new challenges and I know I can overcome anything! Phil 4:13 says " I can do all thing through Christ who STENGTHEN me" and as long I keep that scripture in my heart and mind, i will win and earn victory through Jesus Christ! Amen!

Good Afternoon everyone! Hope all is well. Today has been raining all day and will continue to rain! Thank God for rain!

My wife, April, is doing very well. THe kids are being onery today LOL. Other than that, we are all doing well and happy family.

Elizabeth is now taking a nap while Amanda is watching Dora the Explorer. Amanda didn't want to take a nap and I know she'll sleep good tonight.

Well that's all the news for now! Until then, take it easy and God Bless.

Sunday, October 21, 2007

Good Morning to you all. May God bless you and keep your life safe and in peace! I am doing well. My kids are goofy. My wife is in bed sick! Sure hope she'll be better as soon as possible. I have been writing a blog called My life as a deaf man. You can read it at . This is about me and my point of view. You can comment or read it, or both LOL .

It a beautiful day in Oklahoma and I am ready for winter to come! Christmas is my favorite Holiday where we can get the family together and love each other more LOL

Saturday, October 20, 2007

Good morning everyone! Hope everyone had a good night sleep! We woke up this morning around 8 AM. We gave the girls a bath and dressed them up in warmer clothes. Today was much cooler than usual and I am sure it's because Autumn is here. I love it when the leaves colors are changing and also lesser bugs LOL.

My wife and I washed dishes together and talked while washing. After the dishes were done, April (my wife and she's not born in April! LOL) decided to make some breakfest for all of us. She have gotten much better from her bad cold. I am glad and sure missed her smile and laughter.

The kids are doing well, they fought over a toy! We had to separate them LOL. So April set them down by the tv and have them watch some kid shows and they calmed down. (thank god!) Amanda will be 3 in December 9th, APril will be 23 on January 16th, I will be 30 on March 20th and Elizabeth will be 2 on March 23rd! We are growing beautfully as a family.

Friday, October 19, 2007

It was a nice night for all of us. We decided to go eat at McDonalds for dinner so that way we don't have to wash much dishes LOL. I thought it would be nice for the family to go out and have a good fun. Tonight was a bit chilly so the girls wore some warmer clothes.

Ummm not much going on! Just got my first paycheck in over a year! It made my day LOL. I am just fortunate that the schools would allow me to substitute despite my hearing loss. I am counting all the blessings that God have given me.
It's a beautiful day but my wife and I are still a little sick from the cold. The children seems to be content and playful with each other. We had a wonderful breakfest and now we (my wife and I) are just enjoying our cup of coffee while watching the kids play and watching Dora the Explorer.

In the scripture of Phil 4:13 it says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me" and it's a wonderful scripture! It helps me know that no matter what the circumstances or situations we are in , good or bad, we can survive anything as long we put God first. We don't let our sickness or pain get in the way of taking care of our children and making sure they are happy and in peace with our Lord.

What a day! We had a very busy day. My parents came here after the shopping and got my kids some cute little toys. We had a great dinner, Turkey potpie!!!, and it was good stuff! I am just a proud husband and father of our 2 little girls. They girls watched Dora the Explorer, Diego the Rescuerer, Spongebob, and many other kids shows. We just watched the shows with them and enjoy the day.
My wife made wonderful biscuits and gravy for breakfest and it was gooooood! The kids played around like usual and my parents stopped by to see the kids today for a while. Today is my parents' 35th Anniversary! Congrats Mom and Dad!

My wife and I are doing better, we are not as ill as yesterday. We are still coughing a little but not as bad. THe kids are behaving well and i am soo proud of them.

I just read a newspaper about some parent using an infant as a sheild. How could someone use an infant?????? How evil can a parent be to destory an innocence baby as a sheild? I just don't understand his or her motive to do this. I am glad to hear that the baby is well and taken care of.

On a brighter note, it's a beautiful Afternoon! THe sun is shining and i wish I was well enough to mow the backyard!
Good Morning everyone! I just woke up before 8 AM feeling much much better :) The girls are still asleep LOL. Beautiful day outside, a little windy, but that's okay. I am just thankful to God that I am not as sick as yesterday.

I watched some Ghosthunter TAPS shows last night and they were pretty good. Makes me wonder if there's a ghost in every house? LOL
Finally my oldest daughter went to sleep LOL. I am going to hit the sack and hopefully I'll feel much better when I get a good night sleep! Good Night everyone!

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

What a day! Kids were being playful and wanted us to play with them, read a book, and show us so many different things in our home. My wife and I were not feeling well but managed to get through the day caring for our kids. It's a blessing to recieve strength from our Lord and get through the day. I pray that God will continue to give us wisdom and strength tomorrow!
The youngest one just woke up and saw me when i came into her room. She was soooo happy to see me and waited for me to give her a good morning hug. Got her out of the crib and say "good morning!" It's a blessing to see your own child smile in the morning. It proves that God is Love and His love is true.
I have been reading alot from the Bible lately. It has given me so much wisdeom and brought me closer to God. I know that I should've kept on reading it a long time ago and I regret it. Now I am seeing that it's so important to me as a father and a husband to make sure that my children know God as much as they can.

I told a good friend of mine that no matter how good I am or how much we can preach the Word of God, we will always sin. We all fall short in the glory of God. No matter how much or how little I know God, prayers, or the Word of God, I will always sin before God. That's why we all need Him and it's important to pray for forgiveness after we repent.

It feels goood to be able to write some of my thoughts and journey in my life. It's almost like writing a book about my life LOL. I just thank God for everything He has given to us. Whatever I ask him, He gives me what I need to take care of me and my family.
My daughter has just woken up and went up to me "daddy! I want to watch Dora the Explorer" LOL. She is such a goofball but I am sooooo proud of her. She is able to go potty on her own and count up to 10 in english and spanish! Man, even I can't catch up with her. She's also learning sign language to communicate with my wife and teaching our youngest daughter what she have learned. God has blessed them and I pray that He will use them in His will.
Not a great morning to start out! I woke up with a sore throat and a little headache. My wife was pretty sick for the last 2 or 3 days and I was hoping that I was still be well to make sure the kids and my wife are well. So I need a prayer that God will help us get better as soon as possible and that He will bless our home.

Today in Sequoyah County, we are supposed to have a severe thunderstorms with possilbe hails and torandoes! So pray for Sequoyah County's safety!

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

It's a wonderful day and we are blessed by God. I watched my children play together and showed each other love and compassion and I thought to myself, these are the children of God. I tend to forget how much God have given me and that I am blessed by Our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank God for a home, a family and most of all, our Salvation by the grace of Jesus Christ. Without our Lord, we will never be where are at today.

I love my wife so much! She has always told me to keep my faith in God! It's funny, my father told me that I need to pray for a Christian woman who would love me and make me happy. It was on the 4th of July when my dad told me and I had doubt that it will come true. I went to firework show at the football field in Sallisaw, and behold a beautiful woman (LOL) saw me and from that day on, she stole my heart :) God got a great sense of humor! Who in the world would someone find his or her true love at the football field on the 4th of July ? I gotta tell ya, God knows best! We have been married for 3 years and been together for 4 years in July of 2007! LOVE YOU HONEY!

I look at them and said to myself "God, thank you for them!" God has blessed me and my wife with 2 miracles! Now that I am a father and a husband, i realized how much my father has done for me. My dad was with me throughout all my surgeries, my troubles, my life and for that, I am so grateful to God for my father.

God have done so much for me as well. He has blessed me with a home, a car to drive, a wife to love, daughters to cherish, and Jesus Christ to allow me to have salvation. Jesus is the answer to all my problems and I am grateful to our Lord for what He has done for all of us.

Friday, June 22, 2007

I thank God for the rain. We needed some rain to prevent the wildfire like we did last year in Oklahoma. This year, it looks like we'll be okay. I am praying that this year won't be a flooding season. May God keep us all safe and blessed.

We are going through many storms but I know that Jesus is the answer to our storms. No matter what, Jesus is the answer to any circumstances in our lives. We got to trust our Lord and that's what keeps our marriage strong. Thank God my wife believes in Him, otherwise, our relationship will be rough and bumpy everyday. Becasue of our faith, our marriage is strong and full of joy, *I am sure she would want to slap my head once in awhile LOL*. We got to count our blessings and trust God.
Wow! It has been awhile since I have posted! As you all know, my wife and I have been married for 3 years whooohooo... Praise God for this marriage. Of course we have ups and downs, but we know deep in our hearts, we love each other very much. Because we love God, and we believe in Jesus Christ, we are able to love each other more everyday, communicate well, and forgive each others. Without God, our marriage will probably be down the drain. I thank God for my wife and children. I thank God for everything He has done for me since the day I was born.

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

What a blessed day! We should give all the thanks to the Lord for all His blessings.

My daughter, Lizzy, will become one on the 23rd!! Wow,I am getting old! I will turn 29 on the 20th this month!

God is an Awesome God! We should praise him and sing God's praise! May God Bless you all and keep the Faith!

God's Blessings

Don't take wealth as your number one source of happiness. Our true richness is in our heart when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. That free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
