good morning all my fellow saints:


     bhjoe has influenced me into developing a whole new approach as to how I view my fellow man...I'm all for it...I'm going to try very hard to make this meaningful and beneficial for everyone involved...I'll bring you updates and let you know how it's coming along


what a great day of baseball!...good ol' fashioned double header...won 'em both!...what a display, the grit, the fortitude, the presence...can't ask for much more


let me tell you something...ya' know if this all works out the way I think it's going to (at least a spot in the play offs) we can all thank Ryan Dempster for the impetus...strange how things have a way of working themselves out...mysterious ways I tell you...mysterious ways


hope all of us saints enjoy another great game tonight...




115, I like the new approach, I will be praying for you to have resolve in this new outlook.


Here's a quote I heard the other day, that may help you.  Unfortunately I can not recall the source.


"I like you because of who you are, but I love because of Christ in me."




well, considering it's been almost a year for this first update I have to tell you I have been approaching this new outlook with great concern...ya' know, it's sort of like life in general...."some good days; some bad days"...however, the Good Lord knows I keep trying


bhjoe, thank you for this quote it will help a great deal...I have printed it (in green, even) and I'll tape it to the bathroom mirror
