Advent is upon us

Sunday is the beginning of Advent.  Holy moly!!!!  That came up fast!!!  I’m not ready!!!  Which actually is kind of the point of Advent….waiting…slowing down and waiting on God.  Peace…be still…and know that He is God. ++Ok, Lord….show me how to slow down again and be at peace.++ I do love Advent though…wondrous!

Third place train

A coworker of mine shared that she took and earlier train than usual…and the people on the car seemed to be really bonded.  They talked to one another, laughed, and called one another by their first names.  And here’s the striking part, they invited my coworker to be part of this community!  Amazing!  As a […]

Here comes Santa Claus…not what you think

It’s time for the Christmas movies to start playing again.  And one of my favorites is Santa Claus is Coming to Town. It’s one of my faves due to one scene in particular.  I LOVE the showdown that Chris Cringle has with the evil Winter Warlock.  Chris gives the Warlock a gift that he’s always […]

Give thanks to the Lord!

Today we spent Thanksgiving at my step brother Matt’s house.  What a great time we had.  Great company and great food!

Urgent prayer request

I have an urgent prayer request to ask of you all.   I just got an e-mail from our good friend Duggan who lives in Austin.  His wife Nancy has had cancer for awhile now.  She has taken a turn for the worse. Would you please pray for her?  I thank you!!

Jesus is the answer

A good summary post to the one below is the following story: Yesterday, my son Jesse was reading the Bible and he said “Jesus is the answer”.  I swelled with fatherly pride at my son’s great insight.  I clapped him joyfully on the back and told him that he was indeed right!  Good insight I […]

Transparency

A friend once described my blog as “transparent”.  Translation:  I would often write candidly about things that were happening in my life.  In the last year or so, I have been more cautious.  Frankly this is due to some pretty serious crap that has happened that I don’t exactly want everybody and their dog to know […]

Control

There’s a thought that I’ve been pondering.  It has been said that others only have as much control over you (figurative “you”) as “you” allow them to have. I guess in a sheer sense I would say that this is true.  For example, if my boss at work gives me a command….I could choose not […]

At home

Today was my first day to work at home.  I’m going to be working just one day a week at home to save money and well…b/c I can.  It’s kind of an experiment…and so far it’s worked out really well.  It’s actually been very productive…and yet very relaxing.
