Hello, my name is Jonathan Allain. I serve Jesus. I am currently 39 years old, a divorced, single-father of two children (Abigail, 14, and Balen, 8). I have a zoo: 2 dogs Jazz & Penny, 1 cat Morpheus, 1 rabbit Thunderstorm, and a reef aquarium and some fruit flies (can’t keep their names straight). On the topic of names, I have taken on the moniker “eolith” for my online presence (e.g. Xbox Live, Twitter). This blog will be a bit of a stream of my consciousness and spirit as I endeavor to submit myself to the Will of God. You will encounter the Scripture. You will encounter the truths as I discover them. You may encounter what I call humor and even agree that’s what it’s called.  You will see me through it all, and through all of me I hope you’ll see Jesus.
A little on why I chose the name “eolithics”:
From the British Dictionary

eolith

/ˈiːəʊˌlɪθ/
noun

1. a stone, usually crudely broken, used as a primitive tool in Eolithic times
What does this really mean? In my mind, I am a crude, primitive tool in the hands of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I yield my heart, mind, and body to Him daily so that He will be glorified, exalted; and not me. When I seek my own will and exalt myself (as I often do), I diminish Him and accomplish nothing, and usually harm myself and others.
