Some people are annoying
Saturday, June 19, 2010      4 comments

Have you noticed how easy it is for some people to live vicariously through others? I have been a sports fan all my life, but some of the fanatics for certain teams are more than just a little annoying. They think that because "their team" won t... Read more
Tough News
Friday, June 18, 2010      7 comments

My wife and her family got some tough news yesterday. Her nephew, with whom we graduated from High School and is more like a brother than a nephew, had some surgery yesterday. They were trying to remove cancer from his colon and were not able to... Read more
Getting focused

It's amazing how a good run, and some time of peace and quiet can help me gain a new perspective on things. During my morning run I was blessed with a nice workout, but an even better time with the Lord. He is consistently reminding me that He i... Read more

Yesterday may be a landmark day in the lives of those who call ourselves Southern Baptists, or so we are led to believe. A top-down Great Commission Resurgence has been mandated from this year's meeting of pastors and leaders that is calling for... Read more

Trying to Beat the Rain
Monday, June 14, 2010      4 comments

It was good to get out early enough this morning before some heavy rains hit. The sky was beautiful as the clouds seemed to be moving into position for their wet onslaught upon mid-Mo. Maybe some rain will finally purge this air of this crazy hu... Read more
This is June?
Sunday, June 13, 2010      1 comments

Went out to shoot some hoops and go for a walk this afternoon and had to drink over half a gallon of water. It's in the low 90's with a heat index just below 100. If this is June in mid-Mo then what is July and August going to be like. Be ... Read more

No, my wife and I are not renewing our vows today. However, one of my co-workers is getting married this afternoon. She is an amazing lady and the gentleman she is marrying is a true stand-up guy. Those of us in the office are excited for them. ... Read more
Muggy Morning
Friday, June 11, 2010      0 comments

I made the mistake this morning of sleeping in a little later before I went for my morning run. By the time I got outside for my run, it was already in the upper 70's with our usual high humidity. Fortunately, during the tail end of the run, I w... Read more
Overwhelmed
Thursday, June 10, 2010      6 comments

It has never been my desire to force my beliefs upon others, but I simply wanted to take a moment to share about some feelings that have been bubbling up inside of me. As I was running this morning I was struck by the reality that I am being ove... Read more
Lost a step?
Wednesday, June 09, 2010      2 comments

As I've been watching the NBA playoffs, I cannot help but laugh when these guys talk about losing a step as they age. Doesn't that happen to all of us? After playing hoops the past several weeks with a group of guys that are almost half my age, ... Read more

As I have shared before, I am blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart and my best friend in the world. Debbie has taken up running and has been very consistent at it. The past couple of mornings we have been able to see each other as ... Read more
One of those days
Monday, June 07, 2010      3 comments

Had a tough meeting with my supervisors today. Seems like someone who hosted one of my conferences felt that my content wasn't practical or helpful. They even accused me of sharing a "canned" presentation that was of little value. For the first ... Read more
Keep this weather!

Where's this weather been? High of 82 with a nice cool morning. It was a beautiful day for the 1 hour plus drive up to the church where I am serving as interim pastor. We were blessed with a great morning of worship (3 different services). Altho... Read more
Brutal Run
Saturday, June 05, 2010      3 comments

I made the choice to sleep in a little later this morning before heading out on my long run. Boy, was that a mistake. The heat was brutal, but I managed to crank out 13 miles anyway. Hopefully, the weather was a little kinder where you were... Read more
