I'm Moving!!!!

I have decided to follow after the style of some of my friends and move to a new blogging site. I like to keep things fresh and new, and so that is part of my purpose in moving now.

The blog is going to be BRAND NEW. It is going to hopefully be refreshing from what "Just A Ride" has been.

The new name is going to be "Gray In Oz - The Adventures of a Guy in a Big Strange Place" It's going to hopefully be alot more open and honest than "Just A Ride" has been. I am going to keep "Take A Bow" and revamp my "Of the Week" series. I am not sure what I am going to do about "Caleb's Topics" since it only aired one episode because I didn't have time to do it. I started it at a bad time too. But the second season of "Take A Bow" will air on the new blog in a new format. It will begin and run the entire month of July. I am really excited about it!! It is going to be fun.

But in any case, this will be my last post on the "Just A Ride" blog. I have had two and half great years over here and am so excited about what is coming in the new place.

Be checking the new site as I am building it starting today. The address is


I am going to leave you with a clip from Madea Goes to Jail The Movie b/c it comes out on DVD today and I am soooooo excited!!

Have a great week!!

Caleb's Topics

So this is not replacing TAKE A BOW, but I decided every now and then I would post a video talking about some of the stuff that has caught my attention here and there in the news. It won't be on a tight schedule and as intense as TAKE A BOW was and I will have way more freedom with it. TAKE A BOW is NOT over tho. It will come back in July. But for this new thing, I'm not gonna worry about trying to get one up every week. I will do them as I have time and stuff that I really wanna share my opinion on. So I hope you like it.

Leave me some feedback and enjoy!!

I Need Some Feedback...

Hey guys!!

Or if you just wanna say hi. Haha

Anything suggestions are welcome so shoot me an email!!


See ya!!

My 100th Post - FLOOD!!!!

So there has been lots of rain in the state of Alabama the past week and it still isn't done!!
When I was home this weekend there were roads closed in Wetumpka because of a sink-hole due to flooding. The rivers were also VERY high!!

Today I drove back to Mobile. It has rained HEAVY all day. I got soaked. When I left school I saw where the areas on either side of the entrance to the school were completely under water. It was CRAZY!!

I have heard that there are several roads closed throughout the city due to flooding. It is crazy. Anyways I have been documenting the day as it has unfolded. I am done for now b/c I've got to eat dinner and watch American Idol so anyways.

Take a look at this...

WOW Still can't believe this

Right down the street from my house

Check out Qik...

So I discovered this new thing yesterday called Qik. It's tied in with Twitter. It's kinda like the video version of TwitPic.

The thing that's cool about it is you can record videos from your phone and it feeds it live to the web!! Isn't that awesome?!?!

Go check out my Qik profile and then create your own.


Here is my Qik video from when I was on the way back to Mobile this morning.

NEW LAYOUT & SONG of the Week

Ok so I know that it is one of the templates that is already available from Blogger, but I am not creative enough to make my own. Also just because I don't know how. So if anyone has a suggestion for how to make a cool layout, or if you want to make one for me that would be great!!
Leave me some love!!

Ok now I am presenting this week's SONG of the Week. I posted a little piece of the lyrics to this song a while back and since then the song has been released. It is an amazing song that is an incredible reminder that whatever is going on in our lives, so matter the good or bad, or whatever our circumstance, God is STILL God and He will always be.

Please enjoy Avalon's latest single "Still My God"

Getting Ready for a Surprise

Today was my parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary. I am in Mobile at school as you know and I travel with IMPACT so I am not able to come home very often. Because of this I often miss birthdays and such. Well for my parent's 40th my cousin Joely decided she was gonna plan a surprise party for them. My Dad knew about it b/c we had to use a room at the restaurant, but Mama had no idea and only a few people knew that I was going to be making an appearance. It was a HUGE success and she was really surprised. Here's a little vid I made while I was waiting to come out and surprise her.
It was also Josh's 33rd Birthday Party!!

Mama waiting for her surprise

YAY!! She was so surprised...

...she cried

RANDOM Video of the Week

So I am trying to get back into blogging. So I am trying to start back up my Of the Week Series.
Here is this weeks random video of the week!!

So I will admit that I love watching The View. Those women crack me up and I love them. Here is a video from this past week when Elisabeth purposefully knocked over her water to make a point. I LOVE ELISABETH!!

It happens at 5:00 but the convo leading up to it is pretty interesting talking about Obama's comment about the Special Olympics on Jay Leno.

This second video is what happens after the commercial break. I wanted to post it b/c it has the reaction to the spill and they go on to talk about how Barbara liked baths with her daughter. She talks about it alot on the show. This being the third time that I know of that it has been mentioned. Thought it was funny.

You Satisfy

So I had a pretty rough day today and got some information that I wasn't ready for, but kinda saw coming. Afterwards I listened to this song from Melissa's new album and it blessed me so much. It is TOTALLY true!!!!

This is from Melissa's new album "Next Step" in stores today!! Go get it!!

You Satisfy - Melissa Greene

I have reached for a moment of splendor wished on every star up in the sky
Searching for that something more that’s better
But I keep getting let down but I know it’s gonna work out
Cause You keep showing me how

You satisfy when my soul is thirsty you’re the fountain of sweet mercy
My spirit cries with all I have inside
You fill my heart with joy and only You can satisfy

There are times when I feel sad and I feel lonely
nights I let the tears fall from my eyes
But I know that you will come to me and hold me
I feel my heart beating inside I see the sun starting to rise
I know that I’m gonna be fine

You liberate me from who I used to be
You come and you take me to the mountain where I see
I see the glory see the beauty see the light
You fill my heart with joy and only You can satisfy

Still My God

IMPACT had the opportunity to travel to French Camp Academy in French Camp, Mississippi this past weekend and can I just say I don't think I have received such a blessing in a good long time.

God's love is visible everywhere you look at that place. It was so awesome to see a place where God's hand was moving and doing miracles and giving blessings everywhere I looked. We got to minister and connect with kids who pretty much have nothing and it was such a great experience.
I didn't want to leave.

This statement is from their website...

"French Camp Academy, a Christ centered home and school, exists to serve young people and families for the glory of God". We provide a safe, stable, healing place for young people from families in crisis.

To learn more about the ministry of French Camp Academy please visit their website at www.frenchcamp.org

While we were there we were able to meet, hang out, and minister to kids from 5 all the way up to 18. These children come from broken homes, bad family situations, and other circumstances. Some are also in orphan situations. They come into French Camp and are taken in and loved and taught how to live a strong Christian life. They get to experience what living in a loving family is supposed to be like. Also they receive and excellent education through the school. God is definitely doing wonders there.

After seeing all of the kids and hearing some of their stories, I was reminded after the weekend that no matter what we are going through, no matter what our circumstances are, trouble we get in, hardships we face, etc... there is no place we can get to where God's love can't reach us. We can't stray far enough away from Him. He is always willing to reach out and bring us back into His loving embrace. We just have to willing to let Him do it.

Avalon has a new song on the radio called "Still My God." I make it one of my daily goals in life to continue to worship, praise, and thank God for everything he has given me. Even if it's a tough day, I thank Him b/c He has something for me to learn from it. So whatever trials come He is still my God. I pray that those kids at French Camp will realize that no matter what they face in life, that God is still their God and will always be there for them.

I hope this is an encouragement to you as well.

Here is the lyrics from the chorus of "Still My God" by Avalon. My hope is that this will be a prayer for you.

If I’m standing on a mountain
Or drowning in the sea
If I am filled with hope
Or crying out for mercy
If I’m singing hallelujah
Or scared to make a sound
If I am learning how to walk
Or when I’m falling down
I’m saying You are still my God
Still my God
