I think that it is great that everyone is voicing their opinion on the upcoming election. Freedom of Speech yea? What i think is kinda dumb is that everyone is arguing over everything. Sure some things are said to try to hurt someone else.... thats politics. But no need get on everyones case. I'm guessing we are all on the same side so why are we arguing about the small details? I mean its not like over half of us can vote any way. (not saying that its a bad thing to still care about our countries future)
Idk i might just sound like some uneducated Hawaii kid... but i thought i should just share that with everyone
October 17 2008
so basically having my family here is the bomb. i love it more than most can understand...
well idk if any of you knew but my hair was pretty dang long and i just cut it.... it was kind of depressing but now its all good
i think i kinda like it
well tomorrow we are going horseback riding then surfing like right
after so thats gonna be fun
September 09 2008
well today i found out that my baby cousin died. He was only 17ish weeks old. Through all of that his mother almost died as well. They had a c or sea or see idk anyway that section thing where they take out the baby. I got to see him. He was the most beautiful person i have ever seen. He could fit into the palm of my hand, and at the same time the day before he had a heartbeat, his fingers and toes were formed and you could also see what would be his nose, eyes, and mouth.
My parents asked me before i went to see him if i actually wanted to because his figure may be a little disturbing...
but what i have realized is that he is the exact same as i am. He has a heart and thats all that matters. He has everything that he has now so he must have a creator.
How can anyone say that the baby i saw today... even though he might have been 5 inches long.... not be a human being?
makes me want to kick anyone in the face if they oppose me
September 06 2008
well i had my first bowling match...
i guess it might be news to some of you that im on the bowling team
.... The team i am on is number one in Hawaii for like 4 years running
so needless to say we won..... by like 200 pins each game. I bowled a 146... not my best but whatevs it was my first match and i was nervous
September 01 2008
people that live in Hawaii do not live on the beach and do not go to the beach everyday.
its like on the mainland
just because we have movie theaters doesnt mean you go to the movie theaters everyday
so if anyone sees me and i am not SUPER DARK
you should know i go to HBA and they give us crapload of homework
therefor i cant go beach everyday
uhm ya but i did go today and it was fricken sweet waves
well yeah just thought i would let you guys know
August 16 2008

Nothing really is up.... just a lot of homework... thats gay but ill deal. And now i am a bowler... but i suck so bad lol.
guess i see you guys later
July 17 2008

but if i could go back in time and change one thing
is just smack myself in the face and say dry up them tears
because its gonna be a heck of a ride
I LOVE HAWAII
July 14 2008
So i have a question for all of you.
This week, when you are with your friends, who do they see? Do they see you, or do they see the Christ that is in you?
I was asked this at church today and i thought it was pretty thought provoking.
k love you bye
July 14 2008
answer in a thought so yeahh i figure i might as well tell everyone what i think love really is.
1. What do you think love is?
2. Is it an emotion? or a choice?
3. Does it end?
4. If you are really in love does that mean that you should get married?
5. Does God have one "right" person for everyone? and if so is that the person you are to marry?
Love is a very powerful emotion. I also believe that it is a choice, here is why: you have the decision to say okay i hate this person. Therefore you must have the decision to go the opposite way. It is a choice because God gave us the ability to make choices and that is also why not everyone loves God. If love was only an emotion we would not be able to control it and our "love" would be running wild.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
This verse just tells you what the greatest love is. Now if i were to believe this verse i think i would have to believe that true love never ends. Sure you might get tired of a person or thing. But if you truly love them then you will never stop caring for them. It is a pretty difficult topic but i would have to believe that Christ is the only one with this true love. He died for everyone of us. Even the ones who hated him, he still cared enough to lay down his life.
I dont think that just because you suddenly feel like you are in love with a person means hat you should get married. You need to seek deep council with wise people that may help you realize why you are in love with this person.
And no i do not believe that God has one right person for everyone. I think that the people who go without being married are happier unmarried. If it wasnt so then they would be married. And if they are not married when they are supposed to be then they are not following God's will.
so yeah thats basically my answers to those questions. Feel free to disagree, but if you do please voice it because i am open to learning.
And if you are truly searching on what love really is
what better place to look than the Bible.
1 Corinthians 13
June 28 2008
so I have come to realize that God answers prayers. I mean yeah i have known that for a long time but it is so real to me now. I have been praying that he could just place the desire in my heart to know Him more. So lately i have just been deciding to read my Bible instead of doing other things. I am going to start bringing my Bible everywhere I go. He has made me interested in the Bible. It's kind of crazy because i have been a Christian for around nine years but i have never really dove into the Bible. It was pretty awesome because when i first decided to read i opened to John1:1 which is In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the word was God. So if i want to get to know God Better then i need to read the word.
Well thats kinda whats been on my mind lately so yeahhh shoots
June 18 2008
k the thought below this one... please read it
i am pretty much pouring out my heart
June 18 2008
Pretty amazing things have been happening to me lately. as some of you know i have been at camp kokokahi for the past 2 weeks teaching mime. well my brother in christ has been there too. he haas been kind of like a mentor to me. he has helped me to seek better relationships and such things. So a few things i have learned are...
I need to be more selfless and less vain
I have realized that i needed to ask God to humble me.... and most definatly He did. its not always about me. Looks do not need to be the main focus in my life. christ needs to have charge of everything... in the bible it says love the lord with all your heart soul and mind.... honestly if i am loving him *that* much then what else should i have room to love. also i know you might ask well then how are we supposed to love other people like the significant other? well we need to love the GOD in the person. So that also proposes another question. How could i possibly, being a follower of christ, love any person that does not have christ in them? Well thats just it you cannot because then you would not be giving enough love to jesus.
Also i have realized that some people have considered me a leader. (with the help of brinton howerton and andrew adams) I am going to use a quote from spiderman. "with great power comes great responsibility." this is soo true if soemone wants me to lead them then i dang sure better be leading them in the correct path. One that is a path that God would approve of. I will also give a quote from Andrew. Much is given to you, Tyler, so much will be required.
Also this week i have learned how to have a quiet time with God. Before this week sure every once in a while i would just sit with my Bible and talk to God. This is not the right way to go AT ALL. It is amazing what he can show you if you just give him the time. If you are hesitant to have a devotion because you are too tired or what ever the case may be then please think of it like this. quiet time with God is the best time of the day. the rest just goes downhill from there. i dont care if you are going out on a date or whatever the case may be what better thing is there than to spend time with the creator of everything?
I know that some people may not like things like this and no I am not trying to preach to anyone I am just sharing new things that have been an incredible excitement in my life.
June 09 2008
yes i think my family has found a new house to buy . those of you who went to hawaii for the mission trip, the house is right up the rode from the camp. It is up on a hill and there is a balcony where you can see all of Kaneohe Bay. It is beautiful but, i need you guys to pray that we can get the house. There is competition for it and the price is kind of high. so yeah thats whats going on
June 05 2008
i have had the question posed to me many times... tyler when are you going to start a mime team over in hawaii? well to answer your question... im not going to. BUT this summer i am working with a group called CEF which stands for child evangelism fellowship and i am going to be teaching and being on a summer mime team
so yeah i need prayers cause no one else is here to teach with me
....... anyone want to come out????
June 02 2008
so yeah i dont think a whole lot of you will get this but here it goes.
Barrack Obama meets God in heaven. He walks up to Him and God says wow funny i dont remember you... he replied well I am Barrack Obama the first African-American President. Oh well Im sorry i still dont remember. He gets worried and said but God I just became president like 2 hours ago....
June 02 2008
so i thought i should tell everyone.
I like it here. I mean for the most part i have just been tolorating it, but now it is like wow i actually like living in Hawaii. Its not just a place where i cant wait to get back to Tennessee. I am having fun. Its summer and already like 3 of my friends have called me up "tyler lets go somewhere" I think it is pretty awesome. Soon it will be a year since i have lived here... July 17. And my friends were like we are going to throw you a party. Kinda cool :)
Well i thought i would tell you guys that because well... i havent told you guys much about my feelings ha idk
but yeah take care
