Spring is here…

by Kyle Smith

Just in time for Easter, spring has decided to show it’s happy little face. Though I did keep Jackson home sick today, he finally started feeling better this afternoon (after 24 hrs of being cooped up in the house) so I took him to the park with my mom and snapped a few photos while we were there (insert shameless plug to my photography biz blog, kylesmithphotography.wordpress.com).

Moving on…This Easter is a little different than others because I don’t have a “home” church to attend. This is the first time…well, ever that I don’t have a church to call home. I feel like a heathen, hahaha. That really did make me laugh, not sure why. I think I’m finally done throwing my pity party, or whatever it was that I’ve been doing this past year, and I’m aching to find a church. I constantly find myself wanting more, trying to find something to make things better and there’s only one thing that keeps coming back to me, Jesus. Now I’m not going to get preachy, or I might (this is my blog), and I don’t want to sound too cliche (but there’s really no way around it) but I think it really had to take me kicking a screaming (figuratively, of course, maybe, stop accusing me and keep reading) trying to do it on my own to realize that I’m nothing without Jesus. I miss church. I miss my relationship with God. I miss my relationships with other believers (to those that I’m friends with and are believers, obviously I’m not referring to you, you’re not chopped liver and I cherish our relationships). So to sum things up, I.WANT.JESUS.

Wakin’ up in vegas…

by Kyle Smith

Well tomorrow we leave for our trip to Las Vegas. It’s kinda funny, half of me already wants to be there and the other half doesn’t want it to get here so quickly b/c then it’ll all be over…oh well. I guess it’s really not too bad of a problem to have. What I’m most nervous about is getting to the airport on time. Nicole doesn’t get out of her clinicals at St. Lukes unitl 2 p.m. and our flight leaves at 4:30 p.m. so it’ll be cuttin it close. But once we get on that airplane all the worries will be forgotten…at least until we return on Wed. So enjoy your spring break!!

ps – i might update from vegas depending on how ambitious i’m feeling…maybe some photos…
