Airports

Airports They are the same and they are not the same. Oh, sure planes take off and land. Bad coffee and overpriced snacks. They pat you down when you fail the metal detector (which today was the first time I have not been patted down since my hip surgery almost 20 years ago!)  Today I…

My Bags are Packed

I’m leaving. Not permanently but for three days. Yeah, I know people travel a lot more than me, so this isn’t complaining or competing. But it is contemplating. I will be in the Dallas area for leas than 72 hours for a conference and to see family . Especially Sammy – the grandkid. Oh, I…

8 Seconds

What’s your attention span? Can you give a hour long TV episode your full attention? 30 minute show? How about a 60 second commercial? Have I lost you just reading this? Microsoft, yes that Microsoft, did an infamous study and determined humanity has a shorter span than a goldfish. I’m not sure I’ve ever thought…

But yesterday, I read an article that connected my beliefs with that of an invading army that rapes women and children. What? An MSNBC anchor … said that the…

A Snowy Skyline Drive (in my FJ)

It started as a very windy night, very windy. It was not expected, at least in my weather research. And it was uncertain how long it would last. Sunday evening, we headed to Skyland, a wonderful stop on the mid-northern section of Skyline Drive, the wonderful, picturesque 100+ miles through the Shenandoah National Park. Perfect…

35 Years

It was a Saturday. It doesn’t seem 35 years ago. I stood at the end of the aisle – waited for the entrance of a woman who still takes my breath away. She entered – she didn’t run away. She said “I Do” and life has been a joy beyond what I could imagine. I…

Good Friday

Good … good for me. Good for you. We who need a savior, now have one. That’s good. Friday … Passover. Arrested. Trials. Scourged. Crucified. Nothing in this blog can start to cover it. His love. Demonstrated. On the cross. For you. For me. I hope you know His love.
