About Me

My photo
My name is Chad Davis. I am the creation of my Lord and Savior, I am the son of Marilyn Davis and the late Carl Davis, I am the brother of Gregory Carl Davis, I am a husband to the amazing Tara Davis, and I am a friend to many; all of which put up with me and keep me in-line. I am grateful and blessed to have such an amazing cast of characters in my life. Without them, I would have nothing to write about.

A Tribute to Pearl Jam

I have a new friend. This is Eddye:

OK, here real name isn't Eddye, but it's the name I've given her. So for all intensive purposes, she is Eddye. Her real name is Kellye Vetter. (Ferg or Greg you might have to help everyone out on how I thought of the name Eddye). Eddye loves rainbows, unicorns, singing, long walks on the beach, the Twilight series, dogs, fish, Project Runway and Rascal Flatts. I can handle all of these... except for the last one.

Really, Eddye?! Rascal Flatts?? That could be the worst band ever formed. Every time I hear a Rascal Flatts song, I immediately think of the fastest way to make it stop. I haven't yet turned to suicide as an option to end the nasally madness of this country catastrophe, but if I'm forced to endure them for too long at a time, I might be reaching for a gun. I am extremely disappointed in your poor taste of music.

Anyways, if you can look past Eddye's obsession with a terrible country band (that wants so desperately to be a "pop" band), then you'll also see that she's a pretty cool girl.

An Awesome Mess

Remember me? I use to write you and tell you all sorts of interestingly stupid things. Well, I just wanted to stop by and say, "Hi!"... Soooo.... Hi!

Lately, I have been doing a lot of work related stuff because I've taken on more responsibility. This pleases me. I once hit a point of such restlessness that I was thinking about running out the door and never sitting down again. Now, it seems like I never stop. There is always a new task, a new challenge, or a new person to meet. Even better, there's always somewhere to go or something to do. I could not have asked for a more desirable job.

I've also been sick over the past week or so. Sometime last week, I woke up and started spitting and coughing up lots of blood; I had already been feeling bad for about 2 days. I went to the doctor and he said that its normal for someone who is really congested (and has one nostril completely closed off for air flow) to experience such instances. Well, after a Z-pack, some sort of congestion meds, and 2 different types of nasal sprays I still feel like crap and have a mondo headache. If there are any physicians out there that could diagnose me with something other than a head cold, I'm up for any suggestions.

The month of October was ridiculously busy. I was out of town every weekend. On top of that, I was out of town most of the week days too. Let's see, I went to Dallas 3 weekends in a row (once at the end of September), College Station, Lubbock, Arkansas (twice), and California. One trip, I was in the car from 7 AM to 9 PM. October was a good month for my books on tape collection.

On the rare occasion that I'm in Oklahoma on a weekend, I've started attending LifeChurch, and I experience more and more spiritual growth with every visit. I've also got back into reading my bible on a daily basis; something that I've been neglecting for a while. God is so good to take me back after everything that I've done. If you ever want to realize how amazing God is, try to live your life without him for a while; instant awesomeness the moment you snap out of your selfishness. (DISCLAIMER: I am not suggesting or encouraging that you actually try to go without God for a while. Please do not try this at home.)

My life is a mess... and it's awesome! I have absolutely nothing to complain about. In comparison to most people in the world, I am extremely blessed. God is so good to extend his grace to me time after time after time after time after time... (you understand). I am blessed with an amazing job, I have an amazing family (even if we are few in number), and I have amazing friends (which are even fewer in number). What more in life do you need?
