Another Long, but Very Good, Day
Wow, it's just been one of those seasons of life! Ever since I returned from vacation in the middle of August I have worked 60-70 hours every week! Today was another long one, up at 6:00 started work at 7:00, had working lunch, dinner and snacks... Read more
Couldn't Sleep but Trusting the Lord
It's my fault, I'll be the first to admit it. I don't normally have caffeine but given the busyness of the week I gave in. To add to the problem, our family decided to try a new Mexican restaurant last night and though I ate within my limits (it... Read more
Holiness, Grace & Punishment--A Note to a Friend
This morning I sent the following note to a friend of mine who is serving Jesus Christ in the far east. I wanted her to know we were thinking about and praying for her, and I wanted to encourage her in the Lord. I hope it blesses you as well (I ... Read more
Humbling Ourselves before God
This morning in my daily Bible reading I read a few chapters from the Old Testament book of Isaiah and the thing that struck me most was the words that the day is coming when the Lord will crush all arrogance so that he alone will be exalted (Is... Read more
Busyness & Diet
Life has been unusually busy ever since I got back from vacation in mid-August. I have been working 60-70 hour weeks and trying to attend to many things at home as well. I don't like being this busy, I'm not a workaholic, but at times one must d... Read more

Low Cal Day Today
I've been at some meetings the last two days where they've fed us incredibly well and I've gone WAY over my daily limits. So I'm going to take it easy the next couple of days and balance things out, not neglecting the stuff my body needs but jus... Read more
Still Thankful to the Lord
As I wrote yesterday--a mere 10 hours ago--I have the privilege of meeting with a group of pastors today who, like me, love to start new churches. I won't repeat what I said there but for a number of reasons I'm just so grateful to the Lord for ... Read more
So Thankful to the Lord!
I'm what they call a "church planter" which means I love starting new churches. Four times per year I meet with a group of other planters for accountability, mutual learning, and strategic planning. Today and tomorrow is one of those four times.... Read more
Strength Training Recovery Meals--Any Ideas?
Over the last several weeks I have become much more serious about adding strength training into the mix of my pursuit of health. I am an avid cyclist and understand all I need to about post-ride recovery meals but I've been wondering if there's ... Read more
Getting Close to 212
I've been on a plateau for months now. Going from 242 to 218 was relatively easy, the pounds just flew off. I was feeling great, cycling like a maniac, eating well, and enjoying life. So I was pretty surprised when I realized that, though I was ... Read more

I Fell Asleep While Writing This Blog!
So it's Sunday afternoon. I had a great day of worship and learning and fellowship at church followed by a good lunch at a local Chinese joint (Chinese is my favorite), and then I laid down to rest, watch a little football (football's my favorit... Read more
Lower Body Today but the Core is Still Sore!
Today's my day to workout the lower body but I'm not sure how hard I'm going to go because my core is still pretty sore from my workout two days ago. I've never intensely worked out those muscles before (abs, obliques, lower back) and at 42 I th... Read more
Oh the Core is Sore!
I've been working my core at a fairly mellow level for a few months now and so I decided to fire up the intensity yesterday. I worked my abs, obliques, and lower back pretty hard in two separate sessions which was a good thing but I must say tha... Read more
