Having a laptop in this class is essential for a few reasons:
1. Having the ability to type is much easier for me than to hand write things.
2. If one was to get bored, the ability to surf the "net" is an option.
3. Having e-mail handy is great.
4. Finally, trying to transport a desktop computer around is both awkward and difficult. This was most obvious as one of my fellow classmates Justin showed us today.
Oh man. So awesome! thank you for bringing enjoyment to my day.

When people ask, "If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?" My response is always Michael Jordan. While there are so many amazing people in history, he is one person that i have grown up watching and admiring for his basketball prowess. Therefore I would choose him.
Since I was a little lad I have always been a fan of basketball, I have played it since before my head had grown into my ears. And ever since I could remember my all-time basketball hero was Michael Jordan. I remember getting my first pair of "Air Jordans" in third grade. This would follow by many more years of spending a lot of money on basketball shoes so that hopefully i could "Be like Mike". Unfortunately my lack of athletic ability and lack of height hindered my Basketball Stardom from propelling me from high school to Division 1 basketball, to the NBA. However, my love for watching MJ never ceased. I remember a few of my good friends Dan and Chris and myself, would record the NBA championships when the Bulls would be playing and then replay the great moments of the games as we would prepare for our games. And thanks to some of their relatives in Chicago, when the Bulls would win the Championship, the front page of the Chicago Tribue would come to California. And this along with the sports section from the local LA Times and Orange County Register, I would save any and every article in relation to the Bulls and MJ.
As sad as this may be, hearing the bulls introduction and starting line up would give me chills and still to this day does... especially hearing the "From North Carolina, at Guard, 6'6", Michael Jordan" would get me so pumped that i would literally get chills. See video..
All that to say, last night, when i went over to my in-laws house last night, to my surprise a hat was not awaiting my arrival. It was Michael Jordan!... ok maybe not, however, I did receive a SWEET birthday present! An autographed ticket from the Daytona 200 that is signed "To Randy Happy Birthday Michael Jordan"!!!!!!
Jordan being the thrill seeker he is, is involved in bike racing and is good friends with a racer Jason Britton, who happens to be friends with my mother-in-law. All that to say Brenda pulled some strings and through some huge favors was able to get Mike to sign his ticket for me.
Anyway, This made my day and for the rest of the night I had a huge smile on my face and I am so stoked to have this!!!
So thank you to Brenda and to Michael! you both rock!
And that is a glimpse to my somewhat pathetic life :-)

so today i was listening to a country song by Rodney Atkins entitled "Cleaning This Gun (Come on In Boy)" Now before some of you judge me... 1. yes i listen to country and 2. yes it is a choice.
With that being said, i felt like this song was preparing me to get ready for kids... and God willing one day i have a little girl, this is definitely something that will go on in the Craft household...
Come on in boy sit on down
And tell me about yourself
So you like my daughter do you now?
Yeah we think she's something else
She's her daddy's girl
Her momma's world
She deserves respect
That’s what she'll get
Now ain't it son?
Y’all go out and have some fun
I'll see you when you get back
Probably be up all night
Still cleanin' this gun
After reading that...I have two goals as a father when it comes time to dating my little girl.
1. To hopefully raise her right and instill in her the morals that a parent should, so that she chooses the right boys to like.
2. To make sure that whoever she dates... they will understand what it is like to have a healthy fear for their life... A fear only second to the reverent fear of God.
To my future daughter, I'm not sorry if your first dates don't go very well.

A few weeks ago one of my volunteer's son had his razor scooter stolen from the high school while we were setting up for church. We had thought it was long gone. The razor was very specific because it had custom stickers that say his name on it, "Jace". Well, yesterday, I was driving by Juice It Up in San Clemente and what do I see on the ground outside? A razor scooter with the name Jace on the bottom.
I stopped my truck right in the street, grabbed the razor and walked inside. There was one guy sitting down, around 35-40 years old and I asked him if the razor belonged to him. His response was yes, to my confusion I said, "Um, no its not. It actually belongs to my son Jace." (I referred to him as my son to eliminate any erroneous details that would have not matter in the situation.) Then I asked him, Is your name Jace? His response came back with a, "No". Finally, I said "Ok, I am taking this" and I walked out the door.

A lot of people find God in nature and I agree. I look out my window and I see this vast ocean that goes for as far as the eye can see and then I see the waves crashing on the sand... a point where land meets water, where two massive bodies collide and it can be so peaceful. Sometimes I see that there are no waves and the two seem to be in unison and yet at other times I see the violent waves crashing and pounding on the gentle beach. How can you not see God in all of this? How can yo see the beauty that God created and think it as chance or coincidence that things have formed and grown as they have. Chance? God is so great and just and awesome. I love the beautiful playground that He has created for us!
God IS Love

Little did i know that my friend Ryan had a better plan for me and Ben... Friday night as we were preparing to make a trip to the desert, Ryan made a comment on how we needed to be back so that we can be up in Anaheim by 4:30. To my confusion i said, "Why, we arent going to the fight." While I was saying those words, Ryan points to the table where 3 golden tickets were lying... 3 tickets to the sweetest event of the year UFC 76!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That awesome punk dropped $300 a ticket so we could all experience the event.
I think my favorite part of the whole surprise was when I was in shock and saying no way, he responded with , "You think I would come all the way out here JUST to visit you?"
I think if i had a 3 wishes from a genie in a bottle (not the Christina Aguilera song) one of my wishes would be that i had foresight... yeah should have seen that coming.
Anyway it was an amazing event, if you like that sort of thing.
This is why everyone should have awesome friends!!!

"According to a press release from the police department, the former football star is being held in isolation and spends about 20 hours a day inside a standard 98-square-foot cell.
A judicial official said yesterday that Simpson will appear before a judge tomorrow morning.
Since he arrived at the facility, the jail says he has met with three private attorneys and two public defenders."
A minister stopped by to deliver reading glasses and copies of the Bible and A Purpose Driven Life, according to the release.
"Buildings such as hospitals and theatres will be powered by rubbish from McDonald's restaurants in a new pilot scheme.
Eleven fast-food restaurants in Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley, South Yorkshire, will take part in the initiative, which will turn waste into electricity and heating for 130 buildings in the area.
The scheme will save each restaurant from sending 100 tonnes of refuse to landfill each year and could be rolled out across the country if successful.
The restaurants will become the first in the UK to send no waste to landfill. Instead, any rubbish will be collected, treated at a state-of-the-art energy recovery facility and converted into electricity and heat."

Here are a few action shots of them running around in circles while a third guy is waiting for someone to be out so he can jump in.
Take a chapter out of these guys' book and take joy in all you do! Complaining will do nothing but stoke the fire of bitterness.
