All we really have, is that moment that's happening now. Right here, right now. The promise of growing old and having a lifetime of memories to look back on, for some, is an empty, unrelentingly cruel lie. A systematic elimination of memory after memory slowly erodes into a great void for that person who desperately … Continue reading Here and Now
Life is a gift, A gift is our life But to live a life, that is ours to do. Our gift is to be shared, Our life shared with others To encourage, to laugh, to cry, to celebrate, to mourn Life is complex, glorious, fragile and all to fleeting. As we move through time and … Continue reading A Word about Life
I wonder how many people woke up this morning and decided that today would be a day to hate other people. To purposefully seek out opportunities where they might have the opportunity to hurt others; either by word or action. My hope would be that no one would intentionally start their day in this manner … Continue reading Life Lesson Series – Choose to Love
This may be the most personal post I have in this series of Life Lessons and I probably won't do justice to how important these two things have been to our family over the years. I'm sure most of my kids will weigh in on this post and I really hope they do. The little … Continue reading Life Lesson Series – Music and Dancing
I wrote the following a week ago. I had read a passage of scripture from Ephesians 2:19-22 and was overwhelmed by the promise found in verse 22.

Ok, that was a little sobering to actually type out but being … Continue reading Life Lesson 2 – Serving continued

The longer I live the more I find myself asking the question...Why? Why do Cub fans get excited every spring and think that yes, finally, this is their year? Why is it that the things that taste the best are the worst for you and vice versa? Why is Taylor Swift nominated for best female … Continue reading Why bother?
I left off the last post with the question, What is God's Will for My Life? You here this question or statement a lot while hanging out with Christians, usually something like - "if you could pray for me, I am praying that I would do God's will". Or maybe you hear - "I feel … Continue reading What is God’s Will for My Life?
I thought I would take the time and try to put a wrap on my recent South Africa trip. I have not been the same person since that trip and my hope is that I never again, take for granted, this incredible life that I have been given. Before South Africa I was doing just … Continue reading South Africa Revisited
