See you in 10..

10 days that is.. I am writing this post from Phil and Larissa's house in beautiful MAUI.

Never in our life together have we ever decided to just go on a vacation on a Monday and leave on a Friday. Well, we've done that for camping and such, but not to a tropical and faraway place.

On the agenda for the next week:
Pa'ia Fish market
The North Shore
The road to Hana
Loco Moco
Sea Turtles
Emry Thrash
the occasional elixir
Lots and lots of family snuggle and laughing time.

See you when we return...tan and relaxed :)

what a season

Am I sad its over? Yes.

Would it have been great if we could have kept going? Absolutely (especially in the financial department)

Do I think this is the end of the world? No way.

This is this profession. You lose. You win. You move on. Dave is certainly not defined by the wins and losses. I love to win, and I get wrapped up in it because it effects our lives. But wins and losses in no way determine our future and where God wants to take us.

We had church this morning at our house before the game. Top Pot doughnuts, coffee, and church. The verse for today was Romans 12:2 "And do not be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is; His good, pleasing and perfect will."

The world would tell us that we didn't do good enough and to be sad. But we know that is not true. We know that God is doing something amazing in our lives and that He is taking care of us. And he knows the plans that he has for our future.

Would have loved today's bonus, but more than that I am so thankful that God has literally seen us through every month here and made it certain that we could pay every bill we have on time. Even though our paycheck doesn't even cover it.

And we make sure (it is still SO HARD!!) that we tithe every time we get paid. God is so incredibly faithful and we are working hard to be faithful in response.

Dave in the News

Well, we are still rolling.

But this is really cool. I woke up to phone calls about a news article about Dave in the Daily Breeze down in LA. I'll put the link up here.

God is so awesome and such a cool perspective of the last year.

Another week!!

Just 2 years ago, we were just finishing up a season with El Camino College. Loving every minute. Waiting for Our next adventure.

2 years later....NFC West Champions. And an NFL playoff birth.

What will God do with you when you step out in Faith?

Because there is no way to explain it other than this is what God wants.
