This looks very promising.

You can stream Netflix, Hulu, Youtube from any Wifi capable device (Android, iOS, Chrome on PC) as well as Chrome tabs.

This means that in theory, it can stream the more obscure websites that aren’t supported by Roku or other smart devices.

It’s only $35 too, and comes with 3 free months of Netflix whether or not you’re already signed up with them.

I’m gonna try to get my hands on one and will write up a review when I do.

Eight Years and Counting

family
Praise be to God for these past eight years!

When I was younger, I cried out to the Lord for a companion to fill in the empty spaces in my heart. As is typical with the young, I was completely oblivious that the whole time He was gently telling me to wait while He prepared us for each other. However when we were ready, He introduced me to a fiery young woman and my heart began singing and has yet to cease its song.

I am proud to say that eight years ago today my wife and I declared in front of our friends and family our love for and commitment for each other.

I am so grateful for her loving support during life’s ups and downs. We’ve had some rough times and some easy times, but over all it has been wonderful. I can truly look back and say that I would marry her over and over and over again Groundhog Day style if I had to do so.

I thank God for the amazing gift of our marriage and I pray that we may always serve Him with it.

Take My Hand

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear
Precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears
And the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I’m tired, I’m weak, I’m lone
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Fix It

arteriogram
Three weeks ago today, I received a phone call from my mom. Dad’s stress test indicated he had at least one blockage and he would be going in for an arteriogram to determine the extent of the blockage.

The next day he was being wheeled back to surgery for a triple bypass.

Thankfully, the surgery went well, his heart is in great shape, and now he’s recovering nicely at home.

This all happened so suddenly that it was overwhelming to me. Between recovering from my own illness and dealing with the flood of emotions from my dad’s surgery, I let this blog fall by the wayside, and I apologize.

But that’s not why I’m writing today.

First, I’d like to welcome my dad to the zipper club. I joined it when I was 5, and two of my uncles joined it within the past few years. The zipper club consists of anyone who has a scar from open heart surgery.

I also want to emphasize just how important it is that you have a good relationship with the people in your lives. I’m so grateful that our relationship is what it is; because of it, I was able to hold on to a certain amount of peace during his surgery. I knew that no matter what happened, the only regret would be that I didn’t have more time with him.

If you have issues with someone, please do everything you can to start fixing it. I know sometimes it seems messy, but no matter what complexities are involved, you can break it down to the fact that it NEEDS to be repaired. Or at least you need to attempt to repair it.

Matthew 5:23-24
23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Mark 11:25
25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

It is our responsibility as Christians to make it right, no matter who is at fault.

Fix it.

3 Months

My baby girl turned 3 months old yesterday!

Lets see, she’s already said her first word, and it was Daddy. :) I think she’s going to be a daddy’s girl. She can roll from her back to her tummy, can stand up in our laps by holding on to our fingers, and likes to play “games” with daddy like reaching out to touch my beard and then jerking her arm back over and over.

Also, on Sunday she gave me the best Fathers’ Day gift she could, her first giggle. I caught her in a good mood and found her tickle spot. The ensuing giggle was loud enough for my wife to verify it from the back of the house.

She may wear me and Christina out from lack of sleep, but moments like that make it totally worth it.
