Small Things? Not Really

While a Sr. in High School (30+ yrs ago!!), I took the US military’s ASVAB test, which lists your top career opportunities based on your aptitude. My #1? FUNERAL DIRECTOR!! I scoffed. I already knew I was headed for Bible College & would someday be a Pastor. Little did I know how influential the role […]

I’m Coming Out & Standing Up

I’ve been public about my struggle with depression over the last 12 years, as well as our journey with our son’s diagnosis with bipolar disorder. We don’t know that the diagnosis will stick long term, and as anyone would, we hope it won’t. Nonetheless, I’ve learned there is much more to mental illness than the […]

Adult Truths

Got these from a friend and found them hilarious! Thought I’d share the humor: I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. I totally take back all those times I […]

Textpectations

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it […]

Trepidation Terminated

We arrived in Utah Thursday a little after 4:00 pm Mountain time. We had originally planned to drive right to Heritage for a therapy appointment, thinking we were landing at 3:00 and could be there at 4:00. However, I misinterpreted the itinerary and didn’t include the 1 hour time change. Thus, it was too late […]

Forward With Trepidation

It’s the middle of the night as I’m writing this. I’m a sleeper, meaning I like my sleep. But tonight it evades me. Maybe it doesn’t evade me as much as my stomach’s rumblings keep me from slumber. Most reading this know of my challenges with gastroparesis. Even though I have gained most of the […]

Foursquare Connection, Day 1

Yesterday ended quite badly, starting with arriving to my hotel room at about 2:00 am Columbus time. That in and of itself was not entirely a bad thing. It was buffered by a great conversation with a guy I sat with on the plane from Chicago to Columbus and a shared cab ride with one […]

Waiting For A Jet Plane, Among Other Things

Sitting at Chicago O’Hare Airport, waiting for my 9:05 (7:05 PST) to board and take off at 11:00 (9:00 PST), which is midnight in Columbus, Ohio, my destination. Attending our annual Foursquare Convention with about 2,000 other Foursquare Pastors and Leaders. Circumstances have kept me from attending the last two years, so I’m looking forward […]

What’s The Big Deal About Israel?

I mentioned in my message last Sunday just a little bit about the importance of Christians standing with Israel. I believe it’s particularly important to talk about this in light of President Obama’s recent statement. It took me a long time as a Christian to get this issue. By “getting it”, I don’t claim to […]

Two Weeks Later, Fantastic Voyage Continues

That was the movie … Fantastic Voyage. The one where the people are sent in a capsule through a person’s body. Kept forgetting the name of that movie that described my capusle edoscopy procedure I last posted about. Still waiting for the results to come back from that. In the mean time, on the way […]
