Well I guess my blog has been pretty intense so tonight I will post on the wonderfull'ness' (not a thing) of Psych.

      Lets start with a synopsis (as best as I can do): Psych is simply a show about a Psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his partner and long time best friend Burton Guster "Gus"(DulĂ© Hill)Solving cases for the Santa Barbara Police Department.....The thing is Shawn isn't a Psychic. He is merely super observant after his father (Corbin Bensen) trains him to be a cop throughout his  childhood. He is used by the Police to solve crimes using his "Powers". And things are always unpredictable and exciting. It Is like CSI Miami but way less dramatic looks at the camera while putting on sunglasses ( every episode starts out with Shawn's dad teaching him a lesson of some kind that comes into play in the episode. After that you are in store for an hour or so of hilarious and witty crime solving.

Well now that you know at least a little about the show I will share my opinion, and why I think it is so awesome. I think the best place to start is the beginning of the show, with the intro. It is awesome by itself, but they change it up for episodes like christmas, one about a mexican soap opera (my favorite intro), halloween, and an episode about Indian people...Which is awesome. Next off I  LOVE the way this show is written, It is so quick and witty! The way Shawn and Gus interact they are constantly arguing about random things and going on tangents it is hilarious. The way they work together is remarkable. Also the way Shawn talks with Lassie it is so much fun to watch. One of the last reasons is love this show is great is that they don't take themselves seriously example; There is at least one pineapple in almost all the episodes, like how Seinfeld has Superman in every episode. And my favorite part of all....It's on NETFLIX!!
 Well this has been my brief description of Psych!

Joel 2:12-14

Starting tonight off with a simple verse....

12"Yet even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; 13and rend your hearts and not your garments."Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.
14 Who knows whether he will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the LORD your God?

I underlined the words "rend" and "relents" because honestly I had no idea what they meant in realtion to these verses....according to Rend means "to tear apart, split, or divide" and "relents" means to soften in feeling, temper, or determination; become moremild, compassionate, or forgiving. So there you have it.

This verse truly is amazing! It is so encouraging to read that God, "is gracious and merciful,slow to anger,and abounding steadfast love". But I think as a person I read this tonight, and only view God as a forgiver, which he is don't get me wrong" (not quite sure that is a word). But he is also so much more than just the person we say a word to every night so we can sleep better.I feel like at least in my life sometimes God is only my forgiveness, and that is all. But in reality God is so much more, He convicts us, and leads us, and...even corrects us when we are wrong.....I feel like alot of the time I have a lopsided view on who God is.... and  Pardon me for bringing a Talladega Nights quote (scene) into a rather deep blog post, but what the hay! watch and enjoy!

I promise you this isn't just a random clip of Talladega is actually relevant to my point!!But this clip I think can really sum up how a lot of us view God, (not exactly), but when Ricky says, I like the "Christmas Jesus", the best so I pray to him (paraphrazing) It is like how we view God as something so we can get what we need from him...sorta...hope y'all are following...But God is sometimes put in the box and labeled as whatever you want God to be in this case being "Christmas Jesus" But what I,and maybe you as the reader as well, have to understand is that God is so much more than just forgiveness and healing, but a friend, and the stern hand that guides you. But what I am trying to tell myself mostly tonight is that God needs to be more than a last word at the end of my night, but a huge factor in my life....

But tonight If you didn't know this before God is all of these things listed in this verse! but also so much more as well!!

On that note good night and happy thanksgiving!

Staying on fire

Alright it truly has been a while and for all of you i deeply apologize, but I would like to let everyone who doesn't have a blog know that the want to blog comes and goes quite often!

Let's ease into tonight's blog with a little tidbit from my life....MY KNEE FREAKING HURTS!! I'm not even sure just does...And also we went to the Austin Zoo and had the most glorious personal train ride from Cody the Conductor...(hope this nickname sticks so bad!!) Alright well that was at least part of my day....

So tonight I would like to ask a simple question....
How Do You Keep Your Passion Alive
(In other words, staying on fire...)
This doesn't even need to be a spiritual question, just a simple question about what either keeps you happy or in some cases what keeps you busy in life...(that phrase wasn't planned but man did it sound good when I typed it!)

I understand that everyone has things in their lives that keep them sane wether it'd be sports or knitting or whatever it is.... But how do you keep your passion for that thing you love.
Technically for me right now that is a spiritual thing but this can work both ways...sooo you can keep reading either way!
But I feel like life can suck the passion out of so quickly that you don't even remember what it felt like to have such strong passions in your life...Maybe for me it is just forgetfulness, or something, but definitely not for lack of trying...(maybe a little)  But I wonder how to make sure I stay passionate through just a couple days, and not lose all those amazing feelings built up inside of me!
So the two or three of my loyal readers (hope i am not overestimating this number!...but it's the internet so technically if I said I had a million loyal readers you would never know...)So loyal millions of readers, I ask you to really find what you are passionate about this week and stick with it!
I will try my best as well!
K Bye,
Tim Coleman
