Drained
I have now experienced something I never thought in my lifetime I ever would and something I never want to ever do again. Today I had Cinnamon, my Dad's Yorkshire terrier, put to sleep. It was a surreal experience. I face death all the time. I have dealt with nights where ten people have died and I was called in. That said I was not prepared for the death of one little dog. Still seems somehow wrong when I think about it.

All about the day
The days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months and well, you see the trend. T-minus 12 hours and counting until I am talking to Jamie and She is on her way to me!! Followed shortly thereafter by me going to her... or something like that. Augsberg Fortress has a booksale at seven in the morning and that takes us to Columbus where both vehicles are... The Chevette is raring to go Vroom ditty VROOM! and the van is just wanting to be back in Indiana for a few weeks so it works out nicely. Somewhere in the midst of the next seventy two hours we will be back and forth across half the state of Ohio at least a couple of times. I say "we" of course like it's me doing the driving and in a way it is... at least the better half of me! Well either way my spirit rides those miles. I know Jamie is tired of making that drive. I love that she is that devoted to me... to us. One step at a time I pray that I will be able to make our life together a wonderful experience and make all that driving worth every mile.

Wedding
The day still seems like a dream and yet here I am -- wearing a wedding band and it seems surreal.
I began the day with a drive out to Amy's to pick up my bride and to get a massage. Amy got the energies fixed that had been messed to confusion the day before by a "therapist". I got Jamie to the hotel in plenty of time to get ready. The groomsmen met us at the entrance and we were off to run errands. The tuxedos had been altered and needed to be picked up, there was copying to do and
I stank so a shower was in order so that the bride would not shy away at the very smell of me. Then it was off to Subway and then to the church to get dressed. We were in a downstairs classroom that had it's own bathroom. Nice spot to be in but everyone kept coming in to use the facilities. The grooms men were all gone attending to one errand or another. I was pacing like a horse from one place to another. Amy came in and fixed my makeup - black eye covered quite nicely thank you very much. It was also her chance to let me know that she knew that I had once prayed for such a day with her but it just wasn't right. She was right... God blessed me with the right woman. The irony of us being put together by our exes is well - just that Ironic. It does well for a look or two of chagrine from other as we explain how we met. Upstairs the place was full of family and friends. The pastor came and said a blessing over me and this was my first time being touched in that manner. I was quite amazed at the calm that came over me at that moment. The wait at the front of the church seemed like eternity... The brides maids made me catch my breath... Susie was incredibly beautiful (Yes litte sis you read that right)... but they paled in comparison to the bride who proceded to take my breath completely away. I remember the ceremony seemed to take forever (45 minutes but what do you expect from two seminarians who have a huge library of hymnals to work with) Then the magical time when the kiss happened. Pastor John introduced us for the first time as Mr and Mrs David and Jamie-Sue Ferrell. Wow!! She actually married me!! I never really doubted that fact but it still seems like a dream. Jamie has blessed me in so many ways it would take more space and words than the library of congress to describe it. I love her more and more each day. The reception was short but sweet. We did the lady and the tramp cake bite and the toast was amazing. THe groomsmen said their toasts and Brian made me cry with the poem he wrote... so much talent. We danced to Josh Groban's you raise me up. (Her dad was expecting Daddy's hands... Oh well so sad he didn't earn that one) We then mixed and mingled with guests and I danced a "daddy/daughter" or I should say Godfather/daughter dance with Roxie. Finally we left to a barrage of birdseed and bubbles. The buckshot I mean birdseed hurt like crazy but it was all in good clean fun. The van was decorated with a couple of signs, packing straps and crayon GRRR! The wedding night is between the two of us... We decided that we were too tired to go east so we doubled back and checked into the Lee's Inn with the intention of spending another night with friends that we don't see often enough. The friends all decided for us that it was innappropriate for them to spend time with us... Oh well we were so tired we went to bed and slept the night away. The rest of the honey moon was Sooo much fun ( behave guys thats not what I meant) We ended up tooling around Indy and just being together. It ended all too soon. (We plan a longer honeymoon trip this summer.) All in all I can say one thing about it all... I am blessed beyond words by God to be married to this beautiful woman of faith.

Back to work I go...
Life is interesting. I started back a Lifetouch today and it seems as though I'd never really left. Although it was three and a half months ago when I got the sudden axe I just hit the floor running tonight and took a few thousand in orders. I am growing more and more in my love for my lovely wife. She makes my life an adventure and I am so amazed at the brightness of the day when she is there to help me see the light. I grow deeper and deeper in love with her daily. May it always be as such. I'm working real hard, making the grade... future's so bright... I gotta wear shades... or something like that.

Happy Birthday Jamie! My Little One turns 24 today!
God graced the world with your presence 24 years ago today and I am thankful for the gift that is you today. The cloud of witnesses sees the special heart that He gave to you. Your gentle spirit has blessed me in ways that can only be from Heaven above. God Bless you this and every day of your life. I Love you and Praise your creator for giving you life.

Interesting Valentines day...
I told Jamie that this is truly one Valentine's day that I don't think we'll ever forget. I guess couples rarely forget their first Valentine's day, however, I don't think it is for this particular reason. Snow, snow everywhere... The winter storm that blew through on Tuesday left us both stranded and apart for the day. We really weren't planning any big celebration anyway until this weekend, but I was planning on sending some roses to her. The florists in Columbus were't answering their phones, and I couldn't have gotten anything through if they had since the seminary was closed, so flowers were out. Try as I might I couldn't get either the hover mechanism on the Windstar to function or even find the molecular transport...so a foot of snow times 150 feet equals DAVE NO MOVE. So we'll celebrate this weekend... not the end of the world. I was hoping to be a little romantic yesterday but I can save that surprize for another day. In the meantime I'll just have to cool my heels as I am waiting for a snow removal outfit to call to see how much it's going to cost to have me dug out of the alley to the street.

Anglicans and Mentors....
Today I visited with Jamie at the seminary. It is Anglican formation day and it was enlightening. I find myself more and more in love with this precious soul that God has blessed me with and we are actually growing closer daily. So what? You might well ask... Well it still amazes me that she loves me... It was so long in finding her and I am SO blessed. Last night one of my oldest mentors passed from this world. I was on call and so I was there almost until the end I watched as his very large family loved him across the threshold of this earth's surly bonds. I was supposed to have the night off but I considered it an honor to go in although it was sad that I needed to because of what is seeming to me to be more and more as religious bigotry. Now I respect this man and family but really it shouldn't matter who arrives at the door when you call for a chaplain at the hospital but there is something exclusionary about the religion to which they ascribe. Today I went to class and the last thing I expected to confront was religious bigotry. Well, the question of the day was exclusion or embrace and in small groups what I found out is that we have a LONG way to go in the world of religion and churches. We must learn to embrace as choosing to exclude each other based upon our differences in theologies. I will miss Duane... hard liners like him helped the world grow out of innocence... But we must become more tolerant to grow back TO innocence. It was interesting to find that the problem however is universal.

Questions...
Finally there seems like a viable job opportunity in the works. Sallie Mae, has been recommended by a friend of mine as a possible place. She's even going to give me a reference so who knows?? One step at a time. I sit here tonight and type as I wait for the pager to go off. It's already been a long night as I was called in for a prayer tonight and then PCU called and told me to stand by: Now that helped me wind down NOT!! Will I find work? Will my uncle Jack move in the meanwhile and leave us up a creek?? Will the Cubs EVER win another pennant? (Ok... So the other things aren't sure fire either way... ) Anyway these and a few dozen othert things fill my mind as I wait for the pager to ring. It's sad... If it did I could rest for now... but the sad part if it does it probably means that someone is dead... Strange how the mind works.

Helping friends... Missing my best friend
Helping Amy move today was fun, then tiring, then frustrating in that her brother reared his ugly attitude and got on her nerves big time. I wish I could say the right words to make her feel better but, I don't think they exist. So I'll just say that I am here my friend and I care Keep your head up and we'll all wade through the muck together. Tonight I am home and on call at the hospital. All is quiet for now. I miss my lovely little one tonight and my arms ache to hold her. Six more nights and counting... These trips will pop up from time to time and if she ever does join the military I believe that the wait between holds will be unbearable but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it right now just one weekend apart is enough. I will hold her again in less than a week but nothing can make the minutes fly fast enough for me. ~ Dave

Of lost jobs and such....
So I AM NOT a CSR any longer. Or at least I am employeed, without an assignment. Money is not as tight as it could be as I have a small monthly check coming in. Bills are there but they'll get paid. Ok... ok... so I'm not sure exactly how just that God will provide. One step at a time I'll get there. Faith is after all being certain of what we do not see. There is some land that Grandma Eller left to Dad in her will (Mom before she died) It has had an offer made and hopefully it sells before Christmas which will allow us to pay off some outstanding debts and maybe place some in the bank too. God is still faithful and I still have feet of clay... (Go figure)

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last month I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). In September I pulled murieljaneclark's hair (-5 points). Last Monday I donated bone marrow to marauder_puck in a life-saving procedure (300 points). In May I helped karlana see the light (8 points). In October I bought a ring for jsclutheran (10 points).

Overall, I've been nice (305 points). For Christmas I deserve a Sony Playstation 3!

Sincerely,
daved1969

The trials of life.
My Dad is in the hospital. He was working as a redcoat at the patient discharge counter at Ball and fell over as he was loading a patient into a car He flatlined and is still undergoing testing. Tomorrow he gets a pacemaker-defibulator gadget installed in his chest to shock his heart if it ever stops beating again without permission. He did not have a heart attack so He still holds that much in his favor. Tomorrow is the first surgery and then Thursday of Friday they will go in and stint open three arteries that had closed off since his open heart in 1994. The Doctor seems to think that the increased blood flow will fix the fourth artery and the valve that is leaky. Meanwhile my Aunt Juanita is hospitalized in Indianapolis with a heart problem and my Aunt Brenda has been diagnosed with luekemia. Threes... why always threes?? Oh well... we got em all out of the way quickly this time. In other news work continues to be a life drain... I'm resorting to calling myself worker drone 9135 in private settings. One WODERFUL thing I can say is Jamie contiunes to make life a wonderful place to be in spite of the trials.

Sleepy but restless..
And yet again the sleepless nights continue... Journey speaking my mind this time...
Highway run into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You're on my mind
Restless hearts sleep alone tonight
Sending all my love along the wire
They say that the road
ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line it's been you and me
And loving a preacher man
ain't always what it's supposed to be

Girl
you stand by me
I'm forever yours
faithfully
Circus life under the big top world
We all need the clowns to make us laugh
Through space and time
Always another show
Wodering where I am lost without you
And being a part ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you

Oh girl
you stand by me
I'm forever yours
faithfully

I'm still yours
I'm forever yours
Ever yours
faithfully

With every single beat of my heart
Yes, I was born to take care of you
Every single day...

With every single beat of my heart
Yes, I was born to take care of you

You were made for me
You're my ecstasy
If I was given every opportunity
I'd kill for your love

So take a chance with me
Let me romance with you
I'm caught in a dream
And my dream's come true
It's so hard to believe
This is happening to me
An amazing feeling
Comin' through

I love every little thing about you
I wanna love you, love you, love you
Born - to love you

Yeah, give it to me
