Red bird

Went to Joel’s house last night for dinner. And as we stood outside talking I heard a familiar bird call in the distance. I froze in mid sentence and said “that’s a cardinal!”. Joel affirmed cheerfully that it was. I was elated. Ever since the time when God sent a cardinal to me in Austin […]

red hands…green hands

Walking around downtown Dallas where I work now has been a test in patience. Moving from block to block will meet the would be traveler with constant stops and starts. More stops than starts in the form of signals that are pictures or red hands and green hands. This coupled with the weighty humid-heat and […]

Hanging

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Justin and Kelly Nygren and the good folks at Mars Hill last Sunday. Nope, no connection to the now text-book model church in Seattle. We spent a good amount of time just fellowshipping…and yes drinking a few Fat Tires. There was no singing or music or […]

Harder access

Well, it is decidely harder to blog now that I am without my own computer. I can borrow time on my Step Brother’s pc here and there. But I am concerned about the wearing out of my welcome factor. Justin and Kelly at Marshill have kindly offered access. But Plano is considerably farther away from […]

Big D

Reminder

I’m on my way soon. And I’m dreading the actual separation. Looking forward to the adventure….but dreading being apart from my sweetheart and family. Years ago there was a bumper sticker that a popular church in Socal put out that said “God is a good God”. I was perplexed by this saying back then. I […]

Next chapter

As you may have gleaned, I am moving tomorrow. As such I will very, very likely not be blogging for atleast Friday the 24th. From there on out I am not sure how much access I’ll have to a computer. But a big city like Dallas is bound to have some sort of access. In […]

Huh?!

I was talking to a Pastor aquaitance in town yesterday who didn’t know that I am leaving. And when I told him that I am leaving my family temporarily behind he said something like “You guys are planning to get back together right?”. Now, he doesn’t know me all that well. But this comment shocked […]

Storm on the horizon

Yesterday was my last day at work. It was surreal. Mind you, I had fantasized about that day for month after grueling month. It was anti-climactic. Perhaps it has something to do with the house not selling yet. I don’t know. We’ve had lots of showings…but no bites yet. With the date of departure looming […]
