This is an update as of 01/24/2010. I am officially a grandpa! My son and his fiance have had their first baby boy. His name is Isaac and he was born on Dec 22 2009. He brings much joy to me and I thank God almighty that Isaac is healthy. So just want to let all know. I married twice and have been divorced now for 10 years. I'm dad to 3 children who's ages are 15yrs daughter Vanessa who lives with her mom, 24yr old daughter Margaret and my son Eddie Jr 27yrs old. Who both still live with me because of some troubles in thier lives that had come back home. Which I don't mind at all. I have been living in California all my life have chosen not to find new companion, partner etc. God's word has dictated this decision for me and i will not break Word. I really don't get out much. I am more of a homebody now if anything else. Like to go to the parks and love the California coastline. I'm a simple minded person and realy not a social bug. I have been working now for over 20 years with couple local county agencies and am still working away at the rock pile. I enjoy the people I work around but you know there will always be few sour apples. I have been walking off and on with our Lord Jesus for quite a few years now but am working each day to stay walking with Jesus. Every new day is blessing for me and a challenge as well. To live in this world is having to swim with all that is in it whether good or bad. For most of my life I lived a very sinful life of just doing what ever made me happy. But now Im fighting to get away from that kind of thinking. Ever since I accepted Christ as my Savior and have been learing of new Gospel of forgivness and salvation through Christ. My attitude and this life has changed so much. Though I still fall from time to time. I just get back up and ask God for forgivness and mercy. I can only ask this and I pray that God does not turn His face from me. There is more to tell of me but I feel that the inportant thing that matters here is keeping our eyes on the Kingdom of Heaven. Nothing else matters on this earth. You can have the best friends, coworkers, coolest pets and all the finer things in this world but to God it matters not to Him. It's all about having a personal relationship in christ that is the most important focus for any one of us. I stil struggle with sin even though I desire to do God's will. I have come to realize that this struggle is part of what we are supposed to be experiencing. We cannot change it no matter what we try to do. The sinfulness of our hearts is inbedded within it. It is only by praying and receiving the stregth from God through Christ our Lord that we can overcome these sinful and rebellious thinking. So each day for me is a challenge. If I take my mind and eyes of Jesus even for one second. It's like taking off a vital part of the armor of Christ. Then satan attacks that part and we are struck down and end up falling into a sinful act. I can tell you it has not been easy for me. None of my family have a desire to be in Christ nor at work with exeption of a couple. Before I gave up my old life. I could talk and just have a good old time with others at that time but now. I just don't care to do those things anymore. Now its more lonely but i know in my heart that is not important. As long as I have Christ our Lord and Savior. Through Him is a better world and a new Heaven to be created. I say each day. May God have mercy on me, us, you. Please don't turn away form me. So think how you will live in this world. We are either for Him or against Him. We cannot have one foot in this world and one foot in the Kingdom of God. It won't work. You, we must choose what side we are going to strive to be on. Soon the end of this world will arrive. And everthing that we se and know will all be destroyed forever. Those who are saved will never have to remember this sinful and terrible place ever again. We who are saved will be changed in a blink of an eye. I pray for that great day to get here. Because there is so much suffering and wickedness in this world.
