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.

Merry CHRISTmas Not Xmas

This will probably be the last opportunity I get to write until Christmas. I'm go to Arkansas next week, and then, straight to Gunter, Texas. So to all of my family and hometown friends, MERRY CHRISTMAS and I'll see you soon. To everyone else, you are all creepers for reading my blog; really, who actually takes time to read someones blog if you aren't family?

Keep the Christ in Christmas. You don't say Happy Xday, do you? That's a little too generic. X could mean birth, valentines, president, fathers, mothers, St. Patricks, memorial, Columbus, MLK, Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, election, ect...

True Love; Old Love

You are my best friend. I've known you for so long now that I can't even imagine what it would be like to spend a day without you. It actually seems like an eternity since we've been apart. Please don't ever leave my side; I really don't know what I would do without you. You are the reason that I get out of bed in the mornings, and the reason that I make it through out the day.

I remember once when we were "on a break," I would start my day in a depression knowing that I wasn't going to wake up to you. Then I'd go to work and I wouldn't see you there either. I was semi-suicidal back then because I missed you so much. We were so silly; I'm so thankful that we put our petty differences aside and that we now spend almost every waking moment together.

Just the other day, I thought I would have to go through the whole day without spending time with you; it was a bad day. I had headaches the whole day just thinking of being away from you. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore, so I rushed over to you. Remember? I know you do.

Some people would say that I'm obsessed with you; they're just jealous. Some people even call you a drug. You are a drug. You're my own personal drug, and I'm addicted to you. I need my fix every day; a fix that only you can give me.

I love you, coffee. And that will never change.

The Reason

I haven't really written anything thought provoking in a very long time so I'm going to attempt to get those wheels turning with this one..

With Christmas being tomorrow (just wait; it'll sneak up on you), I feel like I should comment on the reason for the season. What is the reason for the season? (I recently spent some time with my girlfriend's niece watching Dora the Explora so lets do this Dora style)... Can you tell me the "reason for the season"?... (three second pause to let 3 year olds across the nation yell at the television)... Si! It's Cristo Jesus! Muy Bien!!!

Well if Jesus is the short answer, what's the long answer? Well, why do you think Christmas is important? Should we use the season to be thankful for Christ laying down his own life so that we can live eternally? Should we use the season as an opportunity to reach out to others to let them know that Jesus loves them too? If Jesus were to preach a sermon on Christmas, what do you think he would say about it?

I am the last person on earth who should be putting words in Jesus' mouth, but I think I have a pretty good idea of what he would want to say. I think he would ask why everyone is getting so worked up once a year. Why do we wait until Christmas to make the effort to send off presents, reach out to the needy, or show everyone that we think Christ is the reason for the season? Is Christ not the reason for every season? Instead of TWOC, why not FTWOC (fifty-two weeks of Christmas)?

I think the Lord wants us to celebrate every day like it's Christmas. How do we do that? Well, how do you act around Christmas? Greet everyone with a smile. Be nice to people you usually don't have anything to do with. Sing all the time! Give gifts to people who don't deserve them; do even more for the people that do deserve them. Tell people why you are so happy; actually be happy.

Let people know the reason for the season. But even more, don't let the season end after December 25th. Keep giving, keep smiling, keep reaching out EVERYDAY!

Countdown to Greens at Nutters Chapel

I'm sitting here, staring at the wall opposite of my desk where I have two giant calendars, and I just realized that time has turned into an illusive little devil. I want to reach out, grab time by the neck, and hold it down so that it can't go anywhere for a while. Or maybe break one of his legs so that he can't move so fast. Wasn't it summer just last month? Did we not celebrate Halloween last week? What happened to the years that we would stare at the calendar for what seemed like years and only a month would pass by? Now, it seems like months go by like hours and days move along like minutes.

I'm supposed to move to Arkansas in about 5 weeks (REALLY?!?), and the more I travel to Conway, the more I realize that it's very similar to Lubbock. It's approximately 5 hours away from everything, and there really isn't much to do. To many, this would seem like a problem, but I really don't think it's going to bother me too much. I'm super bummed about having to leave my friends, but I'm equally excited to start my new job.

Driving doesn't bother me, so distance from friends and family is no problem. My apartment complex has enough amenities to keep me busy during the evenings. The complex sits on a brand new golf course (which cost me nothing to play!), the gym looks like a fitness club, the pool is huge (sauna and jacuzzi included), and the view from my balcony is breathtaking. Anyways, I've never really been one to just sit around and mope about not knowing anyone, and I am pretty easy to please so entertainment is the least of my worries.

HOWEVER, once again, I am being shipped away to yet another town that does not have a JACK IN THE BOX! First Lubbock, then Oklahoma City, and now Conway; why must this world be so cruel???
