Both have given lessons to other people and both of them have played and led the worship services at my hometown church for years, heck, decades now. You get the point. Loads of talent. Continue reading “Get Back Up”
It’s always interesting to look back at the path that we have gone on to get where we currently are. Often times, it is not the same road that we thought that we would take. It changes course on us frequently, sometimes by our own design and sometimes because of changes going on around us. Continue reading “The Pool Hall”
Do you ever feel like life is moving way too fast? It’s like everything is coming at you so fast that you cannot possibly stay on top of it. At first, it’s manageable.

I just have to continue to put one foot down in front of the other to reach our goal.” Continue reading “Calm Down”
I woke up at 5:45 this morning with two tasks to complete today. One of them will put the finishing touches on my current career while the other one potentially opens the door for my next one. Continue reading “Life is Strange…”
When we moved to Virginia two years ago, we said that we would be house parenting for no more than two more years. Sydney was getting too old to live in a house full of hormonal teenage boys. My plan was to continue on at PHFS in a management position after I finished school. Continue reading “Coming Home … For Good”
A few months ago, I wrote about the frustration of having puppies in the house. The poop on things. They pee on things. They chew up everything that you own.
