Well It Has Been Awhile! (Why I have not posted lately)

I have had the blessing of family poured out on my life of late. First my mother came to visit (as I explained in a previous post). Then this last week, in a massive surprise for my birthday, my brother came to visit. He brought warmer weather with him apparently and it left with him too.

I will detail the surprise later.

First to address the question of this blog's name. I suspect that we all know what ramblings are so, "What is a Reformed Malcontent?"

v. re·formed
v. tr.
To improve by alteration, correction of error, or removal of defects; put into a better form or condition.
To abolish abuse or malpractice in: reform the government.
To put an end to (a wrong). See Synonyms at correct.
To cause (a person) to give up harmful or immoral practices; persuade to adopt a better way of life.

v. intr.
To change for the better.

adj.-Dissatisfied with existing conditions.

n.-A chronically dissatisfied person.
One who rebels against the established system

Putting these to words together has helped express the change in my life. Although it has been over ten years I still remind myself in little and big ways of how chronically dissatisfied I was as a hopeless high school grad with no future and little if any desire to live. My life was totally altered, corrected, put into a better form and condition the day that God took hold of my life. So I am a reformed malcontent who rambles on this blog page and constantly in public also. If you have more questions reguarding God's work in my life please take the link marked "iwork". You will find me under the leadership and staff links.
