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 […]

Started with finding out our annual “A Promise for {insert year}” Guest Speaker for the first Sunday in January the last several years didn’t show up as planned.

Decompressing

It’s been four weeks since I finished school. It feels great to be done, but I’m finding it taking longer to decompress than I expected. I figured it’d take some time to gain a sense of “normalcy” (I know…there’s no real “normal”). I just didn’t figure it would take this long! It’s definitely getting better, […]

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 […]

“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 […]

Taste of Heaven

I think we tasted Heaven. I mean yesterday, in our Sunday celebration. The sanctuary was packed, which is usually not the case for a holiday weekend like the 4th of July. It wasn’t packed because everyone decided to show up on an off weekend, though. It was packed because NewHeart gathered with our sister church, […]

Home Sweet Home

Especially for all those who don’t follow on Facebook or Twitter, Colleen was discharged from the hospital yesterday at about 11:30 am. We were able to catch a 6:30 pm flight out on, of all airlines, ALASKA, which Colleen thought was pretty funny. I was glad she got a kick out of something! She was […]

Just When You Thought It Was Safe!

We were ALMOST home! Set to take a cab to the airport at 9:30 am. But Colleen woke around 12:30 am with the same, but less intense, chest pain. She waited to let me know until 6:45 and we went straight to the ER, so glad to be literally right next door! They’ve run all […]
