I found out that I can blog on my new Microsoft Word 2007 and it translates it to my blog. I am trying it out here.

Also, Noah is 3.5 weeks old now and things are becoming real. He will always be around. Looking back, I would say that it is near impossible to prepare for your first child. You just have to experience it. The joys of holding your own son, your own flesh and blood. The struggles of watching him cry and not knowing why. Your sinful nature inside you causes you to become frustrated, but you don't want to be (see Romans 7).

But all in all, it is such a privilege and a pleasure!

Noah...and sports!

So as you all now know, I am a dad now. Crazy.
Today i had a classic Jamie moment. I was sitting in front of the computer, with Noah on my lap, listening to the Manchester United-Arsenal game on the online radio, and there was about 5 mins left in the game when Noah started crying. What do I do now?!?! "noah, settle down now, daddy wants to hear the end of the game. There is only a few minutes left, buddy." Luckily for me, his soother was an arms reach away so i plunked it in his mouth and it worked like a charm. Phew!

On another sports/Noah related note, the leafs are now 2-0 on Hockey Night in Canada with Noah watching with his daddy!

Finally a post not about sports!

A couple weeks ago Vanessa wrote a post on her blog about being torn. Torn that is between being on campus full-time, and being at home full-time as a mom.
I am currently going through maybe a similar feeling, although i think the work "in limbo" would better describe it.
For me, besides a week off that I will take immediately after the baby is born, I will remain on campus full-time. Where the "in limbo" part comes in is that I don't know when I will take that week. It could be today, tomorrow, or 3 weeks from now. But at some point in the next little while, i will leave my full-time job to be at home to help with our child and be gone for a week. What makes it even harder is that a week and a half from now, we have our major outreach of the year, probably besides Frosh week, our craziest week. I don't know if i will be there for some, none, or all of it. It is hard to volunteer to do stuff when you cant be sure that you are going to be there. Also, my first year guys Bible study is just getting started, an engineering Bible study just started, amongst other things.
Now don't get me wrong. I will be thrilled once our son is born to take the week off. It is just now knowing when that is which is the hard part. To borrow a term from poker, it is hard to be "all in" on campus, knowing i will be pulling off at anytime.

A United Legend retires

Today as I checked my usual sites, one of which is Skysports, my heart became sad as I read the news that Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is retiring. He will always be known as the super-sub as he always found a way to score late in a game after being subbed on.

Below is footage of the goal he will forever be remembered by. It was the game winning goal in stoppage time to win the UEFA Champions League final, the same year Man U won the treble (Premier League, FA Cup, and Champs League). United were down 1-0 going into stoppage time. As you will see, Teddy Sheringham scored the equalizer and then Solskjaer got the winner. And Kirsten, you will be delighted to know that he is Norwegian.

You Are My Solskjaer (to the tune of 'You Are My Sunshine' )
You are my Solskjaer,
My Ole Solskjaer,
You make me happy,
When skies are grey.
Oh Alan Shearer,
Was f*cking dearer,
So please don't take my Solskjaer away.

This made my day

This season has started out poorly for Manchester United. As a fan, this stinks. We drew our first two games which we should have one, and then we lost against hated Manchester City, in a game that we dominated and also should have won.
So this morning when we faced Tottenham, and didn't score in the first half, I got impatient and irritable. But then this happened...

This goal made my day. It was a nervous 20 minutes that followed until the final whistle, but even though it is three games late, we finally got our first win! Now let's string a few of them together with a win next week against the Black Cats (Sunderland)

I Love my Wife

This is my wife. What a cutie. Just look at that smile. She makes makes me happy and here is a short list of reasons why:
- She is easy-going
- She likes sports
- She is hot
- She is loving
- She helps me cut my hair.
- She is caring
- She loves God and has got a strong theological head on her shoulders!
- She will often let me listen to sports talk radio when we are in the Toronto area and actually catch The FAN 590.
- She looks cute pregnant
- She likes to watch fun movies
- She is fun to a hang out with and ALWAYS up for something.
- etc

I am sure for the few out there who still check this blog once and a while, Vanessa has made a great impact on your life!

I love my wife!

Online Books

Hey everyone,

Just another quick note to let you know that Desiring God now has over 30 books online for free here.

This includes a couple of Piper's great titles availible in Chinese! It is so cool how Piper gives all his stuff away for free, and gets it translated to bless the world!

A question, would Don't Waste Your Life be applicable to people in that part of the world?

I love Sports

I love sports. If I wasn't married, I would probably spend all my free time surfing sports websites, trade rumour sites, watching games, and then watching highlights from games.

July 1st is a big day. Many of you will be thinking, "Yah, its Canada Day". Well, it is Canada Day, but I am more excited because it is the first day of free agency in the NHL. Time for me to see the Leafs sign a good player and get me excited for the upcoming season ( a season that will end with Mats Sundin lifting the Stanley Cup).

Well there you go. I am back in the Blogosphere.
