Don’t Worry

Over the past two weeks, our family has driven more than 4,000 miles and been in every time zone in America. Leigh-Ann and the girls were in Seattle for a soccer tournament where Sophia’s team took 3rd in the nation. Congrats! Meanwhile, the boys and I left for Dallas, TX for a tournament for Dallas....

More Power

This past week, the girls have been out of town on a trip and so it has been just the “boys.” We are doing well, but we certainly miss the “girls.” On Tuesday, they left early in the morning and so I decided to stop home mid-morning unannounced to check in on the guys. To...

Retiring

Today I saw a headline about an NFL player who is retiring to spend his life spreading the gospel. Khari Willis is a three-year veteran for the Indianapolis Colts. He started almost all of his games during his career and was slated to return as a starter again this year. He was only one year...

Amazon Pallet

Several months ago, Dallas learned about people who buy pallets of returned goods from Amazon and then resell them on Facebook Marketplace or eBay. He has been sending me links to buy a pallet and to be honest, I’ve been too busy to pursue it. I loved the idea and also the ingenuity, but most...

Addicted

A few days ago, Leigh-Ann made a family favorite for Memorial day that is borderline addictive. It has the perfect amount of salt and sugar that makes my brain SCREAM for more…. …it’s her ridiculously amazing Caramel Corn…or Carmel Corn…Crack Corn…whatever you want to call it. There is a moment when my brain tells me...

Paul Potts…for the majority of his life, he lived in anonymity. However, shortly after we planted New Life, his audition aired on Britain’s Got Talent. Leading up to the audition, when the producers interviewed him, he was working in mobile phone sales and struggling to make a living. They asked why he traveled for the...

Restored

A few weeks ago, Leigh-Ann and I were looking for a planter to put in front of our TV. We tried a handful of stores and even brought a few options home, but nothing seemed to be quite right. Pretty soon it occurred that it might be better to try to make one from scratch....

It’s gone

On Thursday, I came in early to work on the bulk of my sermon for today. Since it was nice out, I decided to set up for my study day on the front deck of the church. I had my water bottle and coffee cup…equally significant for my morning hydration and well-being. After a while,...

Transport and arrival

Leigh-Ann and I are similar in many ways, but we are also quite different. I live in organized chaos…it would appear that my spaces look like a mess, but I know the location of everything I need. Leigh-Ann on the other hand keeps everything organized to the point where it actually looks good and makes...

Peace

It seems pretty clear that nearly everyone wants peace, however, when asked to describe one’s life, it is rarely the first word given. Earlier today, a car cut in front of me and then slowed down to stop barely leaving enough room to take my right-hand turn at the light and keep moving. I was...
