JOURNAL: There I was, taking a walk with my wife in our neighborhood like I had done many times before. But on the way back home, something was different. I noticed a fence that had been broken apart in several places. The first two places were small with only a few pickets knocked off but the last place was much, much larger. It appeared to me that a car had probably hit some ice on the road and spun off striking t

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So, today we are having an area team building event. In the past couple times, we have had a big BBQ. This year, they are mixing it up by doing a Cajan theme. They have flown in "live" craw-fish from Louisiana as well as alligator...(though not live). A few friends and I were talking about this as none of us have ever had alligator.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Well, I am up and around and my body is reminding me of the two games I played last night. But these small pains remind me I am alive and still kicking and I am thankful for that. I am also very grateful for the ONE from whom my help and strength comes from. I am thankful for life and what this body God gave me can still do. And even though my body may not work exactly the same as it used to, I am enjoying the ride.
Thank you God for all You have done for me and still do for me, whether I even know it or not. You rock and are my Rock!

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I heard some people talking on "walkie talkies" this morning. If you ever listen to such talk, you will hear them constantly saying, "Copy that" and sometimes "Over." It made me think back over the years of hearing "WT" talk throughout my life. It occurred to me that in all that time I have never hear anyone say, "Paste that" or "Under." That seems very one sided and a little strange if you ask me.

SHORT THOUGHTS: In 52 years of life, of all the things I still do not know, have not ever been able to figured out or failed to understand...one thing I do know clearly. That is this...God loves me. I was worth a Son to Him.
It does not make any sense to me why because I know me and I really don't think I will truly ever figure it out while I am on this side of eternity. But I do know that it is true...God loves me and God loves you and I am so grateful. These two verses pretty much put it in a nutshell for us.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Humor break: So my friend Larry and I went up to McCall Lake for some sweet fishing. Larry is an avid fisherman and me, well, not so much, although I have watched a few fishing shows on TV. When we got the the beautiful lake, we rented a boat from the boat rental place. Very soon, we were out on the water and on to a spot chosen by Larry, where we dropped anchor.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Who loves hard times? Who considers them, "PURE JOY?" Not me! Not me! But look at all the cool stuff James tells us can come from them.
Right off the bat, we can gain perseverance. And this "perseverance" thingy seems to have the ability to bring us maturity, completeness and to leave us lacking for nothing. I like the sound of that. Who would not want that?

JOURNAL: Recently, my wife, my dog and I were all sitting on a blanket in a park near our house called, "DeMeyer Park." We have our house up for sale and we needed to vacate the premises for a while so a realtor could show some people our property.

SHORT THOUGHTS: When you judge someone, you don't really define them... you define yourself. It is my observation in this thing we call, "life"... that most of the time, it is the people who are making those judgment calls and casting accusations our way that are truly in need of a good look in the mirror.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Today marks three years since my mom closed her eyes to this world and opened them to the next. It has been three years of tremendous changes, loss and challenges to say the least but I am still standing and moving forward.
