No Record

By now, most people have seen the viral video of the courtroom drama that played out at the end of last week in Dallas, Texas. But it’s such a powerful expression of the love of Christ that it is worth revisiting. The video captured the moving response of the brother of Botham Jean, a man […]

Upward Climb

This weekend I spent time away in the mountains with friends on our annual Girlfriend Getaway. Our retreat isn’t one of those vacations where you pack so many activities into the time that you end up more tired when get home than you were when you left.This mini-vacation is about resting, relaxing and reconnecting, so a […]

Out of the Ordinary

It’s seems strange to do ordinary daily tasks after you’ve gotten the news that a friend has died unexpectedly. The sudden shocking event leaves a hollow ache like a punch to the gut. The more days that pass, the more you recognize just how many things are now forever altered. But even so, it’s easy […]

In its simplest form, the scientific Law of Entropy states that “any system is left to itself will go on to randomness or disorder.” That means that everything in the world will naturally move from order to chaos. You don’t have to take a science class to figure that out. All you need is a […]

I was looking through our family photo albums this past weekend and happened to run across some fun pictures of my two oldest kids when they were only 8 and 6 years old. These snapshots were taken at High Rock Lake in North Carolina during the drought of 2002. Normally, the company that controls the dam keeps […]

True Love

My Mom & Dad got married 61 years ago this week. Normally, it’d be a grand celebration of a marriage that has lasted so long, but … Dad didn’t make it to the party this year. His journey on this earth ended in January. But even so, I wanted to take the space of this […]

Giving Proper Credit

It’s back to school time in the county where I live. And though reconvening classes while it’s still the summer makes no sense to me, the buses are indeed rolling through the neighborhood this week. Being homeschooled, Leia (who is my fourth and final student) won’t start her senior year of classes for another couple of weeks, but […]

Selfless in a Selfish World

I was scrolling through social media yesterday and happened across a post.  A nice warm sentiment about taking care of yourself…   The idea, I suppose, is that if you pay attention to your needs first, you’re better able to take care of others. Later I saw another one. Just another thought whose aim is clearly […]
