Boy or Girl?...And the WEINER is?...

November 04 2005
It has now became a "HE!" And he will be called Paul Aslan Nadeau. Aslan is taken from C.S. Lewis's, "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe."

Funny story: So when the nurse was searching to see what part Rachel and I's baby had to determine the sex she blurts out loud when she see's she's his "litttle man," "It's got outdoor plumbing! It's a boy!

Please pray for Aslan as God continues to form him. The doctor said that he is forming well and there are no problems. Praise God! Rachel and I ask that you pray that God would call Him to new life in Jesus and that Aslan would be a willing vessel for God to use to bring glory to His Kingdom.

Playoff Bound: AO Captures Third and Fourth Wins.

October 28 2005

Last Thursday Alpha Omega College Ministry picked up a 34-0 victory over the Mad Muggles in the Men's "A" League. It was the first shutout of the season for AO.The win moved AO to 3-1 on the season.

Last night AO took on 3-1 "Dirrty D" in the chilly autumn air at the MTSU intramural field. AO struck first and went up 6-0. Recording his second interception of 4 on the night, Andy Nick set up the AO offense with it's second score of the game. AO scored and went up 12-0. With 4 minutes remaining in the game AO sealed the victory with another touchdown. Daniel Patterson was the recepient of the point after catch and that made it AO, 19 and Dirrty D, 0. And that's the way it ended. AO 19, and Dirrty D, 0. AO (4-1) has a week off before the playoffs. For more information on playoff times and dates check back soon.

AO asks that you continue to pray for them as they seek to make relationships and shine out for Jesu Christ and His glory.

AO Notches 2nd Victory.

October 14 2005
AO's offense came out and showed the A League why it went to the Championship game last year. AO's defense showed why it can get back there. AO (2-1) won 27-6 against "As Good as it Gets" last night at the MTSU intramural field.

As Good as it Gets came into the game beating "The Shockers" last Thursday night 12-7. The same Shockers team that handed AO it first game loss two weeks ago. On the first offensive series for A.G.A.I.G the AO defense came up big with a big 4th down stop. AO's first series on offense resulted in a touchdown. AO would have the ball a total of 6 times the whole night. AO scored on 4 of the 6. As Good as it Gets scored late in the 4th quarter on a run play. However, the AO defense smothered and harrassed the A.G.A.I.G. QB all night. James Alfonso and Ben Brown each had an interception.

AO thanks everyone who prayed for them last night and for As Good as it Gets. AO 's next game is Thursday, October 20th, at 9pm. Praise God for a great night of competition and opportunity to meet the A.G.A.I.G. players and pray with them and tell them about Christ.

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

This Morning I was Choked by a Camel.

October 13 2005
I found myself in the position of having to arrive on campus early this morning to study for a mid-term. The time is 8:30 am, foggy, 52 degrees. And there before me were a group of my fellow Blue Raiders.. Their names I did not know. Still trying to get the crusty stuff out of my eyes, half asleep, and not wanting to be in the library this early something happened. These students who were in front of the library unleashed a vicious killer toward my direction. This vicious killer was a Camel.

This Camel choked the spit and snot out of me. Not a camel in the physical sense. This Camel was disguised as a smokey ninja. Mist. Elusive. More fleet of foot than Micheal Vick. This Camel was the Camel none other than the Camel cigerette. Their addiction could very well be my demise.
I loathe cigerettes. I bite my thumb at cigerettes

Passed by My Old-self on the Interstate Yesterday on the way back home to Clarksville: Thanking Jesus for my Liberation from who I used to be.

October 10 2005
Yesterday went back up to Clarksville for a family reunion. Rarely do I go to C-Vegas. The first family reunion we've had in 12 years. As I traveled back home I couldn't help but think about my life and all I had went through in Clarksville.

I drove past the hospital I was born in, stayed in when I was sick, and the hospital my Mom died in. The memories played in my head like a movie. I was going to a reunion that my Momma wouldn't be at. It still hurts dealing with her loss but it's better now. I have a family of my own. Praise God for my wife, Rachel. And now we have a baby on the way. I ask God to give me the grace and strength and wisdom to be the dad I never had. I love being a husband to her. I remember looking over at Rachel in the truck yesterday thinking about all this. My life and my past. She was asleep. I felt so blessed to have her. I then looked down at her stomach and smiled thinking about our baby. The memorey montage overwhelmed my mind. I drove into Clarksville in a daze thinking about...The life I grew up in, the person I used to be, the drama and screaming, the hurting, the confusion and the crying, the lonlieness. I passed by the person I used to be on the interstate coming into Clarksville. I kept on driving. Because Christ has set me free. I am a new creation in Him. I can not go back to that person anymore. Once you surrender to Jesus, thats it. I don't have to be burdened anymore.

Sigur Ros, Track 1, ( ), whispers reminisently through my speakers.

This is my brother, Lee. He's went through so much. My favorite athlete of all time. Can play any sport. Former all state soccor star from Clarksville High. Has played minor league soccor and now coaches 4 traveling soccor teams. One of the most tender-hearted and loving persons i have ever met. How he even has a smile on his face after all we've endured is glory to God. I love my little brother.

My beautiful little sister, Danielle. She is so talented. One of the smartest people I have ever been around. I'm so proud of her. She has her college degree and a professional job. She'll be married next year. An example of a woman who has been through so much pain and death yet came out on top of it all without a sour spirit. Praise God! I love my little sister.

Alpha Omega's Defense Comes Alive, Ground Attack Earns First Win.

October 07 2005
When it's 60 degrees, windy, and raining sideways you stay indoors. Unless, your the Alpha Omega Flag Football Team.

With Lambeau Field-like conditions AO's second game of the season was against "Dem Boyz." Coming of a first game loss to The Shockers (18-7), AO looked to get back to last years form and start it's winning streak. AO's first drive on offense started out dominant. On 4th and short AO elected to go for it and appeared to have the first down. However, the refs disagreed and AO turned the ball over to Dem Boyz.The weather dictated the offense and AO found itself having to rely primarily on the running game. AO's defense which struggled last week found itself in this game and came up huge with deflected passes and made some great flag pulls. This was clearly a different team on defense.

The winning touchdown came in the second half. AO started at their own 20 and played AO style football. Methodically picking apart the defense with roll-out short passes and QB keepers. AO controlled the clock and the ball and marched all the way down to Dem Boyz's 5 yard line. On a roll-out left the AO QB just outran the pursuing defense for the only score of the night. AO went for one point and Chase Larson was the recepient of the point after from an AO QB pass up the middle.

The game ended with the rain increasing and the wind picking up making for nasty field conditions. At just under 2 minutes to go, an AO punt saw Dem Boyz take the ball to AO's 30. Dem Boyz marched down field to AO's 5 yard line. With 10 seconds left in the game Dem Boyz QB through incomplete in the endzone to his receiver with no time on the clock. Ball game! Final score, AO=7, Dem Boyz=0.

After the game AO and Dem Boyz prayed together. Jesus Christ was given the glory and AO prayed that those that didn't know Him would come to know Him. Dem Boyz were thankful for the prayer and AO invited them to Alpha Omega on Wednesday nights.

AO plays next week at 9pm on Field 3 against "As Good as it Gets." A special thank you goes out to John Barron, Ben Yergan, Alex Lewis ("who got their first"), Garret Haynes, Michael Gibelyou, Ami Driver, Olivia Elliot, Stephan Hamby, Robert Lewis, Wes Walters, Trevor Atwood, and Forrest, who stayed out in the rain to support AO!

A Wedding, Friends, Pottery, and Chocolate.

Saturday started out slow because I was tired from the Echosflow show the night before. But now it's time to boogie down for Chris's wedding. All you need for a wedding are a bride, groom, mountain dew, a pewter Florida Gator key chain, and some checkered Vans.

After the Chris and Emily's wedding Rachel, me and Trevor and Keva Atwood went on a double date to Fire it Up to paint the jokes guys. I had a blast. This is Rachel putting the final touches on the plate she painted for "Baby Julio."

After we painted pottery we went to The Melting Pot for dessert. That chocolate is so good I could bath in it!!!!

Echosflow at RCKTWN Last Friday.

October 03 2005
Seriously. You need to catch on to what's going on with Echsoflow. To not be at one of their shows is like missing out on bungee jumping off the moon down to earth. What an experience it is to be at a live show. In an age of copycat, cookie cutter music, Echosflow, has made it's own genre. And that genre is honest, passionate, freedom based riffs and lyrics that leaves one pleading for an encore when they leave the stage. It's about time that a group of musicians became serious about honing their energies and spiritual gifts to God's Holy Cause. Be refreshed you who are overun everyday by junk food music.

Listen to 3 songs from their new EP here...

Here are some pictures from last Friday's show.

Flag Football Rules.

September 30 2005

photo from clint

This Sunday at 4pm The Diversion Youth Group will scrimmage the Alpha Omega Flag Football Team. The next three Sundays that follow will be real games between the two teams.

Rules of the Flag Football game.

1)Rushers CAN NOT use there hands in pursuing the QB. Likewise, Blockers CAN NOT use thier hands to block for the QB...or their hips and feet. Blockers must have thier arms behind their back. The key is to keep your feet moving.

2) Once the football is caught the receiver must extend the football out in front of himself. Tucking the football is illegal as it is considered flag guarding. Flag guarding is where you place the football and/or your arms beside your flag to prohibit a defender from pulling your flag. Again, this is bad. Don't do it. Illegal it is, says, Yoda.

3)You can rush the QB as many times as you want. There are no "5 Mississippi's."

4) There is NO TACKLING, PUSHING, OR SHOVING. Any such offense will be dealt with swiftly by a very disenchanted and peeved, Clint Nadeau.

5) Bad attittudes and cry babying will not be allowed. Leave them at home with any alcoholic beverages and tobacco products you might indulge better not be using that poo-poo tasting stuff!

6) In the event of a punt situation. The team that is punting can not move while the punter is punting. Any movement will result in a penalty. The punter must stand behind the line of guys on his team.

6)The Diversion Youth group team will play all members of their team. Any one who comes to play will play.

7) Read Rule 5 again...because I know somebody will not follow it.

8) You can use motion plays, reverses, hand-offs, laterals, and pitches to move your offense. No forward laterals. The QB can rush as many times as he wants.

9)Once the ball touches the ground in any situation it is DEAD. There are no fumbles.

10) We will play until the sunlight runs out or Jesus comes back.

11)Above all else, representing Jesus is why we are playing. For 3 months now Guys Rec. has been designed to help you guys have a Christ-like attitiude as you play sports. Sunday will show who "got it" and "who didn't." Any demonstration of a poor attitiude will not only be very embarrassing for you and humilating but also a good way to willing wipe Jesus Christ's Name in the sewer. Pray now that everyone will display a Christ-like attitude. Don't be "that guy" thatbreaks this rule.

If there are any questions ask me Sunday mornning. May I suggest that you who read this from the youth group to pick a captin. The captin will call the plays and keep the order of the team. Remember ENCOURAGEMENT is the name of the game and the best play to call every time. Feel free to invite your parents. No pets please because doggie ka-ka on the bottom of cleats does compliment the carpet in my apartment...Plus, it smells like...well, dog stuff. And we all hate the smell of that!

I'm excited to play Sunday. Our team needs the practice because we are a little rusty. Have an awesome weekend and see y'all at Chris's wedding.

Fighting the Good Fight of Faith,

This Post as Nothing to do with the Picture Below but with AO Flag Football.

September 26 2005

AO Flag Football returns to action this Thursday at 9pm at the MTSU Intramural Field. Last year, AO saw there season come to a dramatic end in a 19-18 loss in the Intramural Championship game. It was also AO's only loss of the year.

This years team is ready to play but more hungry to go out and be lights for Christ. This year's team returns James Alfonso, Daniel Patterson, Chase Larson, Ben Brown, Colonel Robbins, Scott Maxwell, and Clint Nadeau. Coming over to Join AO from last years AO Team 2 team are Micheal Nick, Andy Nick, Brent ???, and Rob McCloskey.

Please pray for the team and for us by name. Pray that God would use us to show Christ to our opposing team, the refs, the fans that come out for both teams, and that we would be encouraging of each other.

Come out this Thursday night at 9pm at the MTSU Intramural Field to show your support for the AO Men's Flag Football Team. A great opportunity to hangout with friends (also known as "fellowship") and make new relationships with people not in your Christian bubble.

"Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31

For those of you who were at Diversion Wednesday night I want your feedback on how you think the student speakers did.

The Promise
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him that overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paridise of God...He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. (Revelation 2:7,21:7)

The How
And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets-- who through FAITH conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life. (Hebrews 11:32:35, capitalization of faith done by me)

We are promised by God victory if we become overcomers of the, circumstances, trials, doubt, fear, sin, etc. Why isn't victory something we're experience? Obedience and faith. We acheive victory by lovingly being obedient to what God is calling us to do. As we act in faith what He is calling us to do are spiritual confidence increases. May we become a people with an unmoveable faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Those that are bound know not what it is to be free. The tragedy are those people that have been set free but continue to put the chains back on.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23

Late but Worth Noting.

September 14 2005
Friday night Rachel and I went on a date to Red Lobster (cue music: For the seafood lover in you).

It was a fun night filled with me being constantly reminded by my wife to, "act my age." It was really quite enjoyable. Just to get a rise out of Rachel I would make random noises that would sometimes attract the attention of our nearby neighbors at other tables. What a rush! Eventually my beautiful wife gave in and preformed some rather comical noises herself. Oh! And I ate well over 100 shrimp.

You can take the Nadeau's to Red Lobster but you can...
still take the Nadeau's to Red Lobster... anytime. We love that place!
