New Edition in the Carr family

So this past weekend our family had a new edition. His name is Josiah Andrew Carr. He was born July 18th at 9:06am. 7lbs 7oz healthy baby. After a long Saturday night and Sunday morning for my brother and sister-in-law, and those of us that came at 1am to be with them, it was good to see that babies face for the first time. Savanna is doing great and they get to come home today, they had to stay an extra day because Josiah had a little Jaundice. But they are going home, and they are ready to get him home and get him settled in. Below are some pictures I took of him at the hospital.

According to a source Billy D. bought a horse!

Okay everyone I've held out too long from blogging about this. First off let me just say that I am a huge UK fan and in no way is this me bashing them at all. As you all know this time of the year coaching speculations will start to rise, especially in Lexington when a coach isn't winning. Well it has started for UK. From Billy Donovan coming, to Travis Ford already packing his bags, to even (now get this) even Rick Pitino coming back. I do think that in the next few weeks we will know whether or not Billy G. will be fired or he's staying. I have my own opinion on him, but I do think he should be given at least one more year.

Now in my opinion the root of the problems at UK don't start with the coach, it goes much deeper then that, to the Athletic Director. Mitch Barnhart is the root of the problems. All of our problems start when he came in. The only good thing he has done is extend Rich Brook's contract. Mitch drove Tubby out of Lexington, because they were trying to force him to fire assistant coaches and they would not let him hire on his Son Saul. Mitch is not a Kentucky boy, he has been Athletic Director out in Oregon, and Senior assistant at UT, and we all know nothing good comes from Tennessee. In my opinion Mitch needs to go and they need to bring someone in that knows the history and background of Kentucky, some with the same style as good ole C.M. Newton.

So if Lee Todd and Mitch Barnhart want to get rid of Billy G. Then Lee Todd needs to turn around and get rid of Mitch. So I hope you all like this and please comment, cause by no means am I am the most knowledgable person on this.

I am going to start this rumor about the next coach, so here we go. Jon Voight is the next coachat UK, Jon Voight was the coach in the hit movie "Varsity Blues" and the team colors were blue and white, and he also played Adolph Rupp in "Glory Road" So he wants to live that out by coaching Kentucky.

Just Thoughts

So as you can see its been a long time since my last post. A lot has has happened since my last post. I woke up this morning and after getting ready to work I sat down and opened up my Experiencing God day-by-day book and read the entry for March 10. The title of this entry is "Testing Reveals Your Heart." How true this is. As I read through this and looked over to the side panel where you can write thoughts or prayers. It just so happened that on this day I had wrote something in this margin, cause normally I don't. But on this day I wrote some thoughts I had about what I was going through. It is so amazing to see what God has done over the past year, and where he has taken me. This point last year I thought I would be in another city after graduation, which I was for 2 months, but that was only for the summer. Then in August I came back to Bowling Green not knowing where I was gonna work or even live. I knew I was in Gods hands because when I came back I was able to stay in my old apartment till the 1st of September. By the first of September I had landed a full time job and a place to live. From August to now God has definitely taken me through some ups and downs, but through these hard times God has revealed my heart to me, he has revealed some bad things to me and has made me realize a lot. The following verses are what I turned to after reading my entry today and it was the two that were referenced as well.

"For you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness."
James 1:3

"Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him."
James 1:12

After reading all these jumbled thoughts, my point is that God has revealed my heart to me through these times, my faith is stronger then it was a year ago because God transformed me. I could have easily given up during the hard times, but God would not let me give up. It is my prayer for anyone that reads this shares this with others, that you trust God, and know that he is sovereign and is in complete control.

More updates and thoughts will come, it will not be another 6 months before the next one. Hope all is having a good day!!

I Graduated!

So I graduated today, and to tell you the truth it hasn't really hit yet. It probably won't hit me till August and everyone is going back to school, and I a starting that full time job that has yet to be found. But as I look back on my 5 years of college, I start thinking about all the great people that I met and also all the mistakes that I made.

My first 2 years of school, you could say that I wasn't the smartest person. I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but who doesn't. But my junior year is when the Lord grabbed hold of me and has never let go. The people that he has placed in my life have made a huge impact. I want to personally thank you all for everything, from the guys in my small group, to my roommates, and to even my brother. You all have been there for me, and I can't forget the people outside my small group and those who don't live with me, you all have made an impact in my life. I know for now that the Lord has called me to be in Chattanooga for these 3 months, but after that I don't know. But I do know that the Lords will is being played out, and will continue that way. I am gonna miss all of you these 3 months, being praying for me and the others that are working at this camp, and that God will intervene in lives at this camp. Please stay in touch with me on here or on facebook. 

Thanks for everything,

Patience is a Gift

So its been awhile since I have posted on here, that doesn't mean nothing has been going on because it has. What I want to share today is a simple term. That term is PATIENCE. Your hear patience is a virtue, and that is absolutely right, it is also a gift from God. You see over the past month I have been placed in situations where I have to be patient. I have asked for patience and have received it. These situations have been in the form of me interviewing for a job and really trying to seek the Lord out in it, and he also put me in situations with the people around me. You see no matter what I want and how bad I try, it's always going to be on the Lords terms.

Here recently I interviewed for a job at a church, for the longest time I had been praying for this job and they called me down for an interview. Everything went well with it and they offered the position to me. I left and went home and prayed about it for a few days. But I never received peace about it, you see I could not see myself there, for some reason I just did not have peace about taking that job. If you know anything about me, I like to have things planned out and ready to go. Well this is one of those times where its not planned out, or at least for me to see. The Lord has his plan ready and I know that through this I will gain patience and trust through out all this.

Its funny that when you try to do things on your own, you are going to mess it up. I have experienced that myself in the last month. I have tried to control a lot of things and they fall apart. The Lord is always going to be in control no matter what. You are going to have times of weakness where you want to control it, but its never going to work out unless you let God take full control.

"The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps" Proverbs 16:9

We can have everything planned out our way, and think that it is going great. But remember that the Lord will guide us and as it says will establish his steps.
