Cast Away!

Cast Away!

To tell you I know nothing about fly fishing is to greatly exaggerate my knowledge of the sport. In fact the only time it has touched my life happened two years ago when my brother David and his wife visited us in Redding. Known for its superb fly fishing, the Sacramento River lured he and […]

Finding Home

Finding Home

Ahh, now THIS I know. The maple on main street that always shows off its fiery red brilliance in October. The stone house-turned-country store where one can always find a gift that is just right. A hug around a neck I’ve hugged one hundred times in the past and will never grow tired of hugging. […]

Breathe!

‘Catch a wave and you’re sittin’ on top of the world!’ This one line from a Beach Boys song rolled over and over in my mind for weeks on end. It is not a bad tune, all things considered, but weeks on end is a bit much. It had to do with our now living […]

A Matter Of The Heart

A Matter Of The Heart

How Do I Love Me?

How Do I Love Me?

Shall we count the ways you and I Love Ourselves To Life? This love thing matters. It matters because we are made in the image of a God who IS love. He isn’t just named love or considered love or has this nice reputation of being the most loving guy in the universe. His very […]

Drop The Crayon, Pardner!

Drop The Crayon, Pardner!

What it all comes down to is this: No matter what it is we offer the Lord, it is already His. We just have the privilege of offering back a portion of what He gave us. Even crayons. Well. If confession is good for the soul mine is about to have a wonderful week because […]

It’s All Downhill From Here

It's All Downhill From Here

  A funny looking little scotch pine tree is growing in front of me. Literally. As I sit in my new office in my new home in Colorado, I see a scotch pine directly outside the window in front of me. From the look of it, the wind blows hard and the winters take a […]

A Chip Off The Old Rock

A Chip Off The Old Rock

How much easier life is, how much less stress we live under, when we know we have a certain shape and form for a reason! There is something in the air right now causing many to wonder where they belong, how God can use them, or even if He can or will. May you Love […]
