“If you like ’em…I like ’em.”

Just by seeing this image, many of you will know immediately the music video my son has repeatedly used to torment me asked me to watch with him. “Why,” you may ask, “would a reasonable man such as yourself willingly allow his senses to be so mistreated by a loved one?!?  Don’t you know how […]

I survived my first budget meeting! (And you can, too)

Talk is cheap.  I won’t make a big to-do at this point about my new journey with my wife and family into Financial Peace via Dave Ramsey’s course at our church until I have stuck with it for long enough to have something to really talk about.  For now, I will stick to the following […]

Beauty

Why haven’t I been posting lately on the ole blog here?  Of course, there are several reasons.  But first and foremost is this: God has captivated my eyes, my heart, and my spirit with the beauty of His creation, and I have been caught up in developing the art of capturing the moments of wonder […]

Positioning

One of the things I have learned over the last three months of working hard to get in better physical shape and fitness condition is the power of “suiting up and showing up.” (Thanks to my recovery community for that gem!)  Some days, I just ain’t feelin the workout.  Maybe you’ve been there.  Whether I’m […]

Uncle!

There is an old saying, which I think may be Buddhist in origin: When the student is ready…the teacher appears. I have found this to be true in life.  In similar fashion, I have found that when I am willing to admit I can’t handle X, Y, Z, or the whole pile, and I am […]

Lead Your Family…to the Voting Booth!

My New Lifestyle

I have previously posted about my struggles with weight, food, exercise, and fitness.  I am pleased to report that by God’s extravagant grace, I have begun a new life.  I won’t be turning my blog into a physical fitness site, but this is certainly relevant for the spiritual journey for all of us, and I […]
