I was one of those people at the 9-12 march in DC. I am not a fanatic, in fact this was the first time that I have ever been to a political event. I will not bore you with the debate as to how many people were there. I have just resorted to saying that hundreds of thousands of people were there and I was one of them.
I was there for many reasons. First let me just say that I do not like the way this country is going. Our national debt is being doubled just in this year alone and no one in Washington seems to care. They will of coerce claim that they care but actions speak louder than words. The spending is not stopping.
The money I spent just to stand packed in among thousands of other people goes to prove that freedom is not free. To protect freedom we must act, so I will end with this famous quote "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

Have you ever felt like you should do something that you don't want to do? I have explored many different options for a career but every thing that I like or am good at just seem blocked by one obstacle or an other. For a while I seriously considered the military, but I was not very fiscally fit nor was I a very early riser. The biggest reason that I had for rejecting the military was that I had very flat feet that caused me lots of pain.
After abandoning the armed services as a possible option, I explored several others with mixed results nothing very conclusive. So here I was plugging along at my local community college when every thing changed. For reasons that are really boring I started going to a special chiropractor. One that deals with the upper part of the neck. They are called upper cervical chiropractors. Any wases I was very skeptical about going to this one but I went. Just two or three weeks after I started I noticed that my feet weren't in so much pain. In a couple of months I was able to tell that I was sleeping better and feeling more relaxed in the morning. I am nearing the end of my treatment and I feel much better. So much better in fact that it has got me thinking about whether or not I should try the military.
This is where the tug of war comes in to play. I am not keen on the idea. I like freedom and a carefree life style. Joining up would certainly take that away from me. Yet I felt something inside of me saying this is it. I am pretty sure that this was God speaking. There was no way to explain it. Even so I fought the idea until I gave in and went to a recruiter. The recruiters were skeptical about me they gave me a practice test that I did well in which surprised them. I liked doing well but having someone be surprised at my ability is not pleasant. So I said this must be a sign that this is not the road to take in life and abandoned any interest in a military job.
In the months that followed the Navy was brought to my attention again and again and again. How can I ignore this. I feal that I am struggling against Gods will and it does not make me happy.

Life is always full of surprises. Just when we think that we have everything under control wham something will happen that we never saw coming. This is why I liken life to DWI. Our view of the future is sow narrow and blurry. It is skewed or even just plain wrong. In this blog I will share how I blunder though life and hopefully I will be able to share how God takes the wheel and steers me places that I could never reach or even imagine with out his guidance.
