Who am I

WARNING: Contains small parts may be a choking hazard!  

The good news, this blog will not be a choking hazard, however the more appropriate warning might be WARNING: I am not a blogger/writer may cause confusion and sleepiness. 

As this implies writing my thoughts down and having them make sense is really not my cup of tea.  However when your father, who you greatly respect and don’t want to disappoint, asks you to write a blog for a day you don’t really say no.  So on to the blog…

He explained this to me as a diary/record for his family and friends to get to know him better.  So for those that don’t know me and those that want to get to know me better I’m Jeremy Peterson.  I’m 6’4”, 32 years old, been married to the most amazing and beautiful wife for almost 7 years (need all the extra points I can get), have 2 kids (Elijah (yes mom it’s spelt with a J not sh) & Ezekiel), and I’ve worked in sales for the best insurance and financial services company, Country Financial (shameless plug), for just over 10 years.  So is that Jeremy Peterson?  Gosh I hope not.  However isn’t that how we tend to describe people, or even to the extent that we know most people, that tall guy, that guy with the crazy 2 kids, the guy with the wife way better looking than him, etc….  Not saying I don’t do that too but it was recently brought to my attention through a book that this isn’t how god describes us, or knows us, so maybe we should describe people how god does.  So how is that?  Not obviously being god here’s my best shot, Jeremy Peterson is funny, patient, an amazing father, an incredible husband, a caring friend, extremely driven, a deeply spiritual man, and someone I have GREAT plans for.  It would be nice to stop there but for those that do know me unfortunately that’s not quit who Jeremy Peterson is either.  I’m not all that patient (yet), I’m not the spiritual man god has planned (yet), I’m not sure I’ve accomplished all that great of things in gods name (yet), you get the point. 

I’ve been reading a lot of good books lately Christian Atheist, Cast of Characters, The Cat in the Hat (about 17 times now) and there was a point made in one of those books, probably not The Cat in the Hat, which involved a story from Luke chapter 7.  In that story a certain immoral woman (probably not all that patient, not that spiritual, hopefully your getting the connection) crashed Simon’s dinner party for Jesus.  Oh the thoughts going through Simons mind at that point, but before Simon even said anything Jesus addressed his thoughts with a parable.  I’m not going to repeat the whole parable but if you feel moved you know where to find it, I mentioned it above.  It’s not the parable that stuck with me as much at first, although important, it’s the point that goes unnoticed of how god hears our every thought.  He addressed Simon’s concern before he even spoke it.  I don’t know about you but that’s a scary proposition to me, know way I’m going to heaven if he can hear some of the thoughts I’ve had.  However the bright spot was followed up with the point from the parable, “I tell you, her sins – and they are many – have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love.  But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.”  So what does all this mean and why is that relevant here?  Well it goes back to my original opening who is Jeremy Peterson?  I’m someone who has been forgiven MUCH, someone who realizes that God has an amazing amount of love for despite my thoughts at times, and someone who knows God has a plan for.  However the mort important part, someone who knows God hasn’t given up on, as I struggle to get where he wants me to be.  I just need to continue to show much love for him as he will show me that much more. 

For those that made it to the very end, THANKS.  I hope this was worth the time you spent reading it, and most of all I hope you have a little better understanding at this point in time who Jeremy Peterson is.
