Katrina Relief Day One

Today was our first full day in Biloxi to help provide relief and recovery.  Honestly, when we came down here we thought that a lot more progress would have been made.  But as you can see from the pictures on There are still homes in devastation. 

We are hearing that it CLEAN compared to how it looked a few months ago,  but folks are still living in cars and tents.  A lot of families are lucky to be living in a FEMA trailers but most are not.

The major dilemma that most families are facing is they no longer have a home but still have a mortgage and their insurance covers wind damage but not water.  Their disaster relief money has already run out.  Not sure what to do to help them.

BUT, today I did hear of some needs in this area.

1) More work teams.  We are working with a ministry called Hands and Feet and they need more work teams.
2) At least 1 Double Wide Trailer for the free clinic here in the outskirts of Biloxi.
3) Prayer for the emotional and mental distress associated with losing everything but the clothes on their back.  Help getting through the grief process.  This is a job that only God can tackle. 

 We are sure as the days go by we will hear of more needs but for now this is

God Bless,

Real Estate Finally

Wow! I have been very busy. But now I am up and running. I have been doing real estate for two weeks now. And so far I really enjoy the freedoms of being an agent. I enjoy the people. Naomi has started her first day today at work. She had to go to calhoun for an orientation training. So I hope that goes well for her today. I am really excited about the next couple of months. Emma is starting her first full week at the new Daycare today. The biggest struggle so far about the new daycare is that feed here a lot of junk. Which emma eats better than we do. We both had to fight off a little stomach flu this weekend. Well my desire is to keep this more updated will see...

Long time lots of news

Man it has been such a long time since i have put any real thoughts down here. But there has been lots of new happenings. The biggest thing that still surrounds life is our wonderful amazing daughter. We ahve just watched her blossom in to a beautiful almost one year old girl. Camp started off pretty rocking. Had an amazing staff. Couldn't not ask for anything more. The job ended up ending on July 10th. And now we are in transition. We are getting ready to move to Blue Ridge to Dad's Cabin and start a new life. It seems like such a big gamble. Naomi is leaving her Job for us to go out to the Blue Ridge and I am going to Sell Real EState. It is a booming place Blue Ridge and right now it is a Seller's Market. There is lots of growth and lots of oppurtunity. The goal eventually is to get naomi not working and spending time with the eventually family. Right now i am loving being a three unit family. Emma is such a sweet an amazing young lady. We are getting back to simplicty. We are going back to the Cabin. No Tv. we will have internet. But we are just going to try to live simply for a while. ONE. you know the whole reason that i started the journal. there is somthing so appealing about just free writing. Not worrying about punctuation. That is how I want this to be. I don't care if anyone reads it. I don't care if I ever read. But I want to be a place where my thoughts are done. So we won't forget them. This move, This Job change it is going to get us out of our comfort zone. It is going to challenge us. We really do feel that we are following God's will. And we are excited about that. I hope and pray that we can change lives in blue ridge. That we can become productive citzens. God has blessed us both with great skills. There is so much we are going to miss about life in SC. We are going to miss beautiful Greenville. It feels so much like home. We are going to miss all the camp staff that still talk to us. The lives that we have had an oppurtunity to touch. We are going to miss Caesar's Head. We are going to miss camping. But tonight I realized that I will be back. The next step and you heard it here first. The next time I am in camping it will be on my terms and my camp and changing lives. CHANGING LIVES. It won't stop don't worry it isn't goig to stop. I love Kids and I love camping. I belive. I know Bob is looking down. This is just a step. JUST a step to greater things. More soon. Don't worry. You won't know where this is kept. My thoughts. No secrets. Just happy thougts. ONE. ONE FAMILY (Love the family) ONE wife (Amazing Wife) One Room (one room house) one daughter (amazing Daughter). Thank you Jesus....AMEN!!!!

How is a pope's papal name determined?

How is a pope's papal name determined?

Pope John Paul II began his life as Karol Wojtyla but gave up his original Polish name when he became pontiff. Many speculate that he chose "John Paul" to honor his predecessor, Pope John Paul I, who passed away after barely a month in office. This previous pope had selected the unusual double name as a combination of two earlier popes.

When a man is elected pope, the cardinal dean asks him two questions. First, the candidate is asked if he accepts the office. If that's a "yes," he's then asked what name he wants to be known by as pope. Presumably, he's thought about this beforehand, because immediately, the two masters of ceremonies draw up documents to announce the new pope and his name.

Choosing a papal name isn't required by Catholic ritual, but it's been tradition since the year 1009. The first pope to change his name was John II in 533. His birth name was Mercurius or Mercury -- which was also the name of a pagan god and not so good for the head of the Christian church. New papal names started to become popular, but they weren't absolute. The last pope to keep his given name as pope was Marcellus II in 1555.

These days, a new pope often picks the name of his favorite saint or pope to be his papal name.
