I was thinking last Sunday about how my life has changed over the past year and that has led me to several days of consideration about this topic. Some know that on my 26th birthday I was frustrated about where I was in life and set a list of goals to achieve before my next birthday. As August 2008 approached, I became more and more […]

O how the world to evil allures me! O how my heart is tempted to sin! I must tell Jesus, and He will help me Over the world the vict’ry to win. – Elisha A. Hoffman, “I Must Tell Jesus,” verse 3 A few months ago, during a worship service, I was playing “I Must Tell Jesus” and singing it with the congregation. Now, I […]

ACTOR HEATH LEDGER FOUND DEAD IN NEW YORK CITY Those were the words that flashed in the corner of my computer screen at a few minutes after 5 pm Tuesday afternoon. I was working on a project for a client and had Outlook running when a update arrived in my email Inbox. The message stopped me cold. It is amazing how quickly thoughts can […]

The Ultimate Gift

A couple weeks ago I finally went to FYE and bought The Ultimate Gift on DVD, after asking at the Bible Bookstore and being told that they had no plans of getting it. I watched it with my family the next night. I must say that if the trailer had been more honest, I probably wouldn’t have watched the movie. That might possibly have been […]

Meteor Shower

I saw the meteor shower this evening. What an awesome testimony to God’s power and His wonderful creation! I understand that last night would have been the best night to watch it, but in about ten minutes I saw at least four meteors and possibly another out of the corner of my eye. Just looking at the stars is amazing and something I seldom stop […]

A veritable dichotomy

In our neighborhood, there are several dogs that bark all evening. One gets started and the others follow. It seems that they must all be chained out all night, for it doesn’t seem to matter what time I go to bed, I generally hear them while in bed. It’s a creepy sound – all of those dogs barking at once from all over the neighborhood. […]

Googled Out

I recently commented to a friend that I sometimes feel like I spend my entire life on Google. Until I saw my Google Trends today, though, I didn’t realize how right that statement was. It appears that I have made over 2000 searches on Google since last May. That doesn’t include all of the searches I have made when I wasn’t logged in to Google. […]

The whole idea of a blog is kind of odd… I mean, who really cares what is going on with me, or what I think about the latest legislation? Does anyone care? Should anyone care? Probably not. I first started my blog back when I left my old job and related lifestyle (more on that some other time) and wanted to provide a method for […]
