    It’s been a challenge, but I am at the place right now where I need to speak up, and to put down. After some 3 and a half years at church, setting up every Sunday morning and tearing down every Sunday afternoon, and trying to lead a small group one night a week, I...

    It’s been a while, and because of that fact, I appreciate the efforts of my birthday twin and childhood friend Kristy Cole Holliday (“Prone to Wander”), and my boss Tim Price (Tim Price’s “Photo of the Day, Etc.”), who each make it their goal to post one entry a day. They both stay at...

    Today was a good day, although it started with the sky so melancholy that it quietly cried for a spell before the sun fully awoke and worked on cheering everyone up. I got up during its sadness and felt fall chill throughout the house and pet the kitties before I headed to church and...

    The theme in the new series that started at church today is “Defining Moments”. It’s a series about Peter the disciple, but today Todd talked about the moments you and I encounter infrequently where we make single decisions that impact the course of our lives. Similarly, I finished Steinbeck’s “The Winter of our Discontent”,...

    On my list of things I hoped to get done this spring/summer/fall/maybe-winter were a few bigger item dealies. I wanted to build and seed a garden box in my backyard (check). I wanted to get screens for all of my-non-screened windows (uh, no). I wanted to put down wood floors in my living room...

    A Sunset in May

    Last night, I started reading one of a number of short writing books I picked up over the last few months. At the turn of the year, I thought if I read more writing books, I’d write more, so I scoured a few writing book lists from decent sources on the internet for recommends....

    While overall today was a well executed day, it was also a challenging one. I started the day working off of my newest to-do list, which I am trying to incorporate into my life because I so often need help getting things done, and I had two items on it that were going to...

    Today was a good day, and by all accounts, it felt that way from the get go this morning- despite another cat gift found in the front room. After dressing, I discovered that French Roast in the coffee maker is actually a blend that I like (with French Vanilla). At work, I felt like...

    Today was a normal Tuesday in most aspects. I got up. I made coffee. I went to work. I had small group. It was different in two ways though. Before work, I had a medical appointment with a specialist whose office was on the west side, in a direction opposite from where I work...
