Why I’m a BIG Fan of Chris Chase! (…and why you should be too!)

Why I’m a BIG Fan of Chris Chase! (…and why you should be too!)

I can’t hide it anymore.  I’m a BIG fan of Chris Chase.

I’ve taken the liberty of taking this quote directly from his site…because, nobody knows Chris Chase like Chris Chase.

Hi. My Name is Chris Chase. I am a husband, father and an overall work-in-progress.

~ Chris Chase

Some of you may ask, “Why now Matt?  Why after all this time are you telling the world of your critical acclaim for Chris?”  The answer is simple – I talked with him last night and remembered that we were friends once! (Of course that was before his promotion and the beginning of his journey to become the future leader of the PAOC)

Chris and I talked for minutes and minutes about a variety of things.  And then it happened!  He told me something that could very well change my life!

Chris is running a contest on his blog – he’s looking for guest bloggers!

I initially declined his invitation to join the contest.  But after he broke down and sobbed I had to change my position and told him that I would enter his contest.

Following are the top reasons I believe I should be a ‘thatchrischase‘ guest blogger.

1)  We both have beards.  (I am well aware that his beard is FAR superior to mine…but I take solace in the fact that we are both on the same side of the beard/nobeard battle)

2)  I know how to write. (While I may not be the best writer in the world…or even in the top 1 billion…I do know that some of the people he hangs around with can’t even write their names very well – take a look at some of his friends on his blog page…they can’t be older than 5!)

3)  We both cheer for teams that are not in the NBA playoffs. (Admittedly the Toronto Blue Jays play baseball, so my team wouldn’t be in the playoffs of course…but Blue Jays or Lakers…I feel his pain.)

4)  We both have wall sized posters of Bill Gaither on our walls. (this one is in Chris’ den.)

and finally,

5)  We are the best of friends and hang out together all the time! (us hanging out all the time)

In conclusion, I think I am the best candidate for guest posting on thatchrischase.com

To vote, please send a message to Chris and tell him I should win!


Happy Pi Day

My grade 11 math teacher would have been so proud of the fact that I’m honouring Pi day!  So I dedicate this Pi Day shoutout to Mr. Graham: May the crust be always flakey, May the filling be just right. May the numbers be unending, And the last taste as good as the first bite!…

Oceans – by Hillsong United: Performed by WorshipMob

My feet may fail and fear surrounds me.  You never fail, and you won’t start now.  There I find you in a mystery, in oceans deep my faith will stand. God has never failed me.  Not once.  There have been times that I haven’t ‘felt’ His presence, and I know that there are many people…

There is No Excuse

I have made more excuses in my life than I care to admit.  For every shortcoming I have ever had or now have – I try to explain away my lack of success.  After seeing this I now realize that every excuse I make from here on out will literally mean nothing.

Live What You Love

What would you do if money was no object?  If you didn’t have to get up and go to work just for the money to pay the bills, what would your passion be?  If you can find the answer to that question – you’ll find the answer to why you’re alive.  Your purpose in life…

What Brought Us Together

No year passes us without it’s critics or it’s cheerleaders.  For each of us the year holds something different.  But whatever has occurred, whatever has transpired in your life or in mine, these are some of the things that brought us a little closer.  “Live life to the fullest…because you never know what tomorrow brings.”

You Are My Beloved…

“You are my beloved child.  I chose you before the foundation of the world, to walk with Me along paths designed uniquely for you.  Concentrate on keeping in step with Me, instead of trying to anticipate My plans for you.  If you trust that My plans are to prosper you and not to harm you,…

How Bad Do You Want It?

How badly do you want what you want?  What are you willing to do to achieve your goals, your future or your destiny?  How much effort are you willing to put in to each activity?  What price are you willing to pay.  Because at the end of the day, everyone pays a price.  Only YOU…
