Now, I'd like to address some things I see have been going on in my "virtual cockpit". First of all, good things take time. I know it might take ten or twenty years, but I just might end up with some real nice whiskers. And besides, you can't blame a guy for trying his best, can you? I'm mean, my Dad's Dad was the only one in his unit in the army that could go almost a whole week in boot camp without shaving, and not get in trouble! So the fact that it can be seen on a picture after only ??????? days, ok, maybe it was months, anyway, its still beating the odds, even if it is just barely. A couple weeks ago my family was even saying it was to the point of needing trimmed! So I looked it over carefully and trimmed three of the whiskers. They were right, it looks a lot better after that. And just so you know where I stand, I stand behind my whiskers!

Due to there being no recent posts on this cockpit called Josiah's, I thought I'd give you an update: He's home. He's busy.
Love you, brother! (I bet you'll never guess which sister this is, either!)

My Scripture for the day- The fear of the Lord leads to life, And he who has it will abide in satisfaction; He will not be visited with evil. Proverbs 19:23

A quote I saw at an airport recently:
"The only time success come before work is in the dictionary".

In Cody Wyoming we spent some time with the Atnip Family,
They had a dirt bike just my size! (haha)
Its little 50cc motor didn't have quite the power as there Sportsmen 700.
But it would get me around, barely.

Charissa has adapted well to life on the road!
Back on the road!
What is desired in a man is kindness, and a poor man is better than a liar. Pro 19:22

The verse that came to mind is Pro. 16:9 “A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.

We (that would be us oldest eight children) are helping with taking care of the children for the Nebraska state home school convention as in years past. We will have about 200+ children the last Friday and Saturday in March. And as in years past there is a drama with a theme and biblical life lessons, and last year I made the drama team....as a bad guy. So this year you'll never guess what part they gave me....yep, another bad guy part. They say its cause a I make such a "good" bad guy. But I can't help but wonder, if there is such a thing as a "good" bad guy. Although I must say it is a fun part, and I'll give my best at being a "good" bad guy.
One thing on the trip that really touched me, and I'll share it with you is while ministering in prison, one of the prisoners made the statement that the first time he used a fork and spoon was in prison. Most, if not all these guys came from a rough family background, or no family at all. It made me think, what did I do to grow up in a family that loved me. Absolutely nothing, God placed me here, and for that I am very thankful. But if I had a childhood like most these men behind bars, most of whom either do not know there father, or hate there father, and wish they had never known him because, he was so abusive, I would be right in there with them. Its great to see how God takes and changes anybody when they surrender to His Lordship. For its not that I am better than they, I need God's grace, and forgivness just as much as they do. It is by God's grace and for knowledge (nothing to do with me) that I have grown up in a loving family, but to whom more is given, more is required. Its not how many talents I have, but what am I doing with the talents I do have, or should I say, that God has given me?

This may look like a cool wakeboarding trick, or something like that. The truth be told, it ended with a big splash!
Something like this.

Then, just before it was time to go I got a bite on my line. I knew it was something bigger than normal. After five minutes of fighting it finally came to shore. It was a sting-ray!
