I’ve been telling folks at my church that the days and weeks have been running together lately. Part of this is because it’s summer, and summer days tend to be less remarkable somehow than days through the rest of the year. The main reason I feel my days are running together is because in the […]Read More Thoughts About Alaska
(Yes, that’s right. I posted to #NoCamo. I’m hoping to be much more consistent with my content for the foreseeable future, because…) My family and I are moving to Nevada!Read More An Adventure!
This morning on the way to the gym, I passed a video board. I pass it every morning. It usually has ads for attorneys, car lots, and grocery stores. But this morning, it had a different ad. It had a picture of Billy Graham. And the caption, “Gone Home.”Read More Gone Home

(I have no idea if […]Read More Weekly Mind Dump 041517… Not So Much
It has been an eventful week. Here is this week’s #nocamowmd… My daughter, Lydia, got to sing Francesca Battistelli’s Giants Fall at Blue Grass Baptist School’s talent show. She did AWESOME! So proud. My church, LBT, is finishing up as sermon series called I Am a Church Member. To wit, I read an interesting supporting […]Read More Weekly Mind Dump 031617
