It Has Begun
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      1 comments

Our youngest daughter, Olivia, got on the bus and headed to school this morning. It's still hard for me to believe that she is already an eight year old third grader. Over the past three years my wife has taken her to school in the mornings, and... Read more
What a morning
Monday, August 16, 2010      2 comments

It was an amazing morning to be outside for some exercise. After several days of brutal early morning temps and suffocating humidity, it was nice to finally run in conditions more conducive for exercise. If you're a resident of Mid-Mo, then... Read more
Scenic drive
Sunday, August 15, 2010      5 comments

One of the challenges and pleasures of my job is all the driving I get to do. This weekend for example I drove a little over 500 miles on Friday and Saturday to go to Sikeston, Missouri. Then I drove a little over 200 miles to and from Marcelin... Read more
Long day on the road
Friday, August 13, 2010      2 comments

I will be heading to Sikeston, Mo here in a few moments. It's about a five hour drive from Jeff City. I will be a part of a team that is leading a conference for about 200 Bible Study and Discipleship leaders in that part of the state. Abou... Read more
Kind Words
Thursday, August 12, 2010      3 comments

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement I received following my blog yesterday. I am going to stay focused on my training, and hopefully, something will open up later in the Fall that I am not aware of. Otherwise, I'll shoot for a race ... Read more
Frustrating Setback
Wednesday, August 11, 2010      9 comments

It was my hope and plan to be able to run in a race for the first time in many years sometime this Fall. One of the guys that I work with is a runner as well and we were looking into the possibility of running in a half-marathon this Fall and th... Read more
Just a few more days

For once, I hope that our local weatherman is right. He claims that our heat wave is going to break here in Mid-Mo next week. It would be great to run in the morning when it's not 80+ degrees with our typical 80% humidity. This morning's ru... Read more
Ready for the week
Monday, August 09, 2010      2 comments

The craziness has begun. We will be involved in two training conferences this week. One is in the south central part of the state, and the other is in the southeastern part of the state on Saturday. This will go on until early October. Whe... Read more
Sunday drive
Sunday, August 08, 2010      2 comments

This morning involved a long drive to the Northeastern part of our state. It was over a two hour drive to the church where I spoke this morning. It was a gorgeous morning to be on the road, and the drive through this part of the state did have s... Read more
Successful Evening
Saturday, August 07, 2010      2 comments

Last night's sleepover was a success. While Olivia's friend waffled a little bit about being away from home, a few minutes on the phone with her Mom last night gave her the courage to presevere. The two of them played late into the night an... Read more
Olivia's first sleepover
Friday, August 06, 2010      1 comments

Tonight is a monumental occasion for our youngest daughter, Olivia. This will be the first time that she has had a friend over to spend the night. Of course, she has been to a few sleepover birthday parties, but this is the first time that she i... Read more
One in a Million?
Thursday, August 05, 2010      5 comments

Why do we always have to focus upon the negatives in our lives? More often than not I find myself and others focusing more upon what's wrong in my life, rather than being thankful for what is right. Of course, the media and culture help us ... Read more
Better than yesterday
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      1 comments

While it was far from perfect running conditions this morning when I left the house, the heat did not seem to be as oppressive as it has been the past few days. There were a couple of times that I actually felt a cooler breeze. Getting back home... Read more
Running in a furnace
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      2 comments

It was quite a shock to be confronted with 80 degree weather and that soupy humidity. As I began to run, I was very thankful that the sun was not shining yet. It's hard to imagine how difficult it must be for the folks who have to work outside i... Read more
Here It Comes
Monday, August 02, 2010      3 comments

Look's like this week will be the calm before the storm. Our team's travel schedule gets rather hectic over the next three months beginning next Tuesday evening. While I enjoy spending time with church leaders, the travel and life "on the road" ... Read more
