Marriage and Mt. Doom

I get my best thoughts when I am half asleep. Last night I was thinking about my marriage and the struggles my wife and I are going through.

My mind wandered back to The Lord of the Rings where the part in the Return of The King movie where Sam Gamgee picks Frodo up and carries him the last part of the way up Mt. Doom.

I think that's how married life is sometimes. It's not fun but it is learning to bear one another's burden's.

I fail often, pray for me.

Toll the Hounds

I am currently halfway through the 8th book in The Malazan Book of the Fallen.

So far there are many interesting twists and turns but as usual for Steven Erickson "The Payoff" is in the last half of the book.

Life has been strange the past few months. I really feel led to return to the Roman Catholic Church but at the same time I am entwined in the leadership of our current church. So I am walking that one out step by step.

Please continue praying for my Marriage, as things are not all Kosher, we are in counseling right now so hopefully things will get better.
