I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a blog post… although, I guess I could just go check the date on my last article. Hold on.

April 4, 2010. That’s actually not as far back as I thought.

Well, a lot has happened since then! A few months after my last post, I met the most amazing woman. I bought a ring after only two weeks, we got married two weeks after that, and we have never looked back since. Let me tell you – short of deciding to follow Christ, marrying Ashley was the best decision I’ve ever made!

Here we are together:

When I married Ashley, I also inherited a son. Legally he’s my stepson, but I’ve always had a problem with fathers who constantly emphasize the “step” in stepchild. He’s only three now, and someday he’ll know the truth (We won’t hide it from him), but I hope he always knows that I will always love him as if he was my own. Otherwise, how could I ever be an effective father?

Archer is the coolest kid in the whole world! He learns so quickly, and he’s got a great sense of humor. He’s the bravest little boy I’ve ever met. He acts just like I did when I was a kid, and it’s so funny, because I find myself telling him the exact same things my parents used to say to me :) Right now he’s really into superheroes, and he says the coolest things. We’ve started writing them down so that someday when he’s grown we can look back and remember.

I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs over the years, but I have to say, life is pretty good. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that you have to stay close to God. Don’t get mad at Him just because you don’t understand. For the longest time, I was so angry at God because I didn’t have a family. But then I let the anger go, and BAM! God blessed me with a family! Am I saying that God will give you whatever you want if you follow a formula? Hardly. But when I met Ashley, I finally understood why God had waited for so long to bring us together. My angers and frustrations were so petty, and my previous relationships were just smoke and mirrors compared to the reality of God’s love.

Ashley has told me before that she thinks I should start blogging again… and I’ve never been satisfied with having my last post be a horrible review of Clash of the Titans, so here I am. Will I write more blogs in the future? Maybe :) But if this is the last you hear from me, be blessed, and know that God is good.
