Frustrated!!!

I am just frustrated as all-git-out tonight! My van passenger power window has been inoperative for some time now. I ordered a new motor a couple months ago. It’s been sitting in my garage … TAUNTING ME … “Install me, why don’tcha?”, it screams whenever I pass it by. Well, Saturday, I finally did! My […]

Search Keywords For My Blog

I was perusing my blog statistics tonight, specifically checking out the keywords people are using on search engines that got them to my blog. Those are usually pretty benign, but I got a laugh out of some of the phrases I found tonight. The best ones were: “it’s gonna be a good day to get […]

Too Busy To Enjoy?

Second Sunday every month is “Family Sunday”, when we have our kids in with us during worship. Great way for kids to see worship modeled. Today being Veteran’s Day, […]

It’s Gonna Be A Good Day …

As I was tidying up my morning list of things to do, I was anticipating heading over to Starbucks for a good tall, extra hot soy white mocha, decaf and no whip. Looking outside at the grey sky and knowing the temperature to be a bit cool, the thought struck me, “wouldn’t it be great […]

Weekend Reflections

Our Harvest Festival last Wednesday was incredible! Probably our best ever. John Cox made a video we showed Sunday thanking our volunteers. Here it is in case you missed it: Colleen and I were BLOWN AWAY by the gifts we received for Pastors Appreciation Month! The Starbucks cards alone should hold me over until, say, […]

Sad State of Affairs

If I could count the number of couples I’ve sat with who felt like they were done with each other and incapable of finding any more passion and compassion for the other person, I know the sheer number would be unbelievable. Whenever I think about it (which happens whenever I see a couple like this, […]
