Leaning and Learning – 4/28/2015

JOURNAL:  This life can have chapters of super fantastic times but it can have some chapters we would rather have just skipped.  There is so much that we do not understand and when hard times come and bad things happen, it is natural for us to wonder why.  But we don't see the whole book of our life.  We are only looking at today's page and drawing upon what has already been written.  We do not see what lies in the next chapter or more importantly, the last chapter of our lives.

Not in Kansas Anymore - 5/27/2015

TotoRANDOM THOUGHTS:  And this is how my mind works. I use that term loosely.

While visiting the restroom on the way out of my doctor appt this morning, I saw this brand name on the toilet.  Without missing a beat, in my head, I heard, Dorothy, from The Wizard of Oz, say, "Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore."

Flirting With Death – 5/4/2015

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  An actual conversation with my wife, Denice, first things last Sunday morning​.

My Wife:  Tapping my "ring-less" wedding ring finger. (I don't wear my ring when I play softball, which I had done the day before.  I do not do this to be a "player" but to protect my ring from the bat.)

Me:  I like that tapping thing you are doing on my finger.

My Wife:  You are in big trouble mister!

Me:  Why would I be in trouble?  (innocent blinking going on)

A Choice - 4/15/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  We all have a choice to make.  Free will is exactly that...the right to choose.  With each choice we make, we reap the consequences of that it good or bad.  We are responsible in part for what our lives look like.  We have a say in how we mold our lives because of the gift of free will that God has given us all.

Angry Legs - 4/15/2015

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  My legs are not happy with me today.  They are saying mean and painful things to me, letting me know that they do not appreciate that I sprinted around the bases on Monday night.  (to circumvent any future comments from my fellow softball warriors: YES, I was actually sprinting AND I already have unhooked the trailer)  Anyway, if my legs were like lizard tails, I believe they would break off in revolt today and I would have to grow new ones.  Just saying.

Carry on,

Finding Faith – 4/9/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Do you feel like you lack faith?  What is faith?  How do you get faith?  You can't find it on eBay or Craigslist and I have looked for it at the Christian book store and they are not selling it.  I have even been watching all the TV ads and so far, there no "faith pill" or buy one set of faith and get a second set free for only seven easy payments of $9.99.  So how exactly do we get this faith stuff anyway?

Give and Take – 4/7/2015

Give and TakeJOURNAL:  As I was leaving work yesterday, my friend, Larry, told me that he would be in late the next day.  He said he had to go to the dentist to get some final work done on a crown and added, “There’s a thousand dollars down the drain!”  I replied, “Yes, but not for the dentist.”  Then as I was leaving I shared with him the thought that popped into my head.  “One man’s drain is another man’s

The Great Conductor – 4/3/2015

JOURNAL:  Last night, my wife, Denice, and I went and watch, "No Greater Love.”  I cannot even tell you how many years we have been meaning to go see this production of the life of Jesus.  This local church has been putting on this production for the past thirty four years.  We were invited this year by my "red headed" daughter, Kelsey, her boyfriend, Andrew, and this year it happened.

Seeking and Finding – 3/23/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  What are you seeking in this life?  What are you finding?  If you don't like what you see when you check out the view, then start looking for something else that you would rather find.

In my experience in life so far, I have found that I usually find what I look for.  If I look for the bad, I will surely easily find it.  And if I look for the good, it is all around me.  Both are there and always have been all the time.  It is a matter of what I choose to seek...what I look for. 

A Grizzly Business Deal - 3/21/2015

a grizzly business deal

Last night, in the black of night (scary music plays), I woke up with a thought on my mind.  Now you would think it would be a very important thought if my mind woke me up in the middle of the night to share it with me.  And indeed, it was.
