It's Almost Here
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      4 comments

It's hard to believe that this time next week, I will be in sunny and warm El Salvador. I'm trying to get all of my teaching materials printed and ready to go, so that I can figure out how much room I will have in my luggage for personal stuff. ... Read more
Stormy Night
Monday, February 28, 2011      2 comments

After all the noise we heard last night, I wasn't sure what it would be like this morning when I woke up. While I acutally enjoy the sound of a thunderstorm as I am trying to sleep at night, I do not always appreciate the mess that they leave in... Read more

I'm taking a day off from running to give my legs a chance to recover. This time next week I'll be in sunny El Salvador on a mission trip for the fourth year in a row. While I truly enjoy this time of ministry, I really miss my family when I'm a... Read more
One Month Away
Saturday, February 26, 2011      1 comments

It was a little misty this morning during my long run. Still, it was good to get it done, especially since I won't be able to get another one in for the next couple of weeks. The half-marathon is one month away. If I could run it now I'd be read... Read more
Surpise Weekend

I was planning on going to a retreat in Northwest Mo this afternoon, but our snowy weather put that event on hold, since they have about 8 inches of snow on the ground around Chillicothe. Due to that, I will be able to enjoy some more time with ... Read more
Before the Rain
Thursday, February 24, 2011      2 comments

I was able to dodge another bullet with respect to the rain this morning. We had a clearing in the rain early this morning before the deluge starts here in mid-Mo. The temps were in the upper 30's with very little wind as I left the house this m... Read more
Challenging Morning
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      1 comments

After watching the weather forecast this morning, I decided to go ahead and run outside. It was chilly, but the roads were still wet. While I was out, I began to get pelted with some sleet, which was only a minor irritation. Fortunately, the roa... Read more

President's Day

Today I am blessed with a day off from work. So after a nice run this morning, I am looking forward to spending some time this afternoon with my girls. Of course, that means I will have to go shopping, which is not an activity I enjoy. However,... Read more
Changing Focus

I was able to get out for a nice run this morning before heading to worship. We had a great crowd and a nice service after an interesting Bible Study Class. Our adult group has begun the study "What's So Amazing About Grace?" by Phillip Yancey. ... Read more
Crazy day
Saturday, February 19, 2011      1 comments

During this time of transition in our lives, things can get a little crazy. After a Men's breakfast at church, I came back home to help my wife as we get ready for a visit from our realtor this afternoon. Our hope is to be ready to move sometime... Read more
Beautiful Day

Another amazing morning in mid-Mo. I realize that Winter is not over here in the Midwest, but I am sure enjoying this Spring-like respite. I was able to get out this morning and get my long run in for the week. It's hard to imagine that in a lit... Read more
Out for a Run
Thursday, February 17, 2011      0 comments

It felt really nice to get out and run without all of the cold weather gear this morning. I realize that things are about to change. We are going to enjoy some 70 degree weather here in mid-Mo in February. Of course, we'll probably pay for it la... Read more
Death By Meeting?

A crazy day of meetings that started at 8:30 a.m. and just finished a little after 4 p.m. are finally over. Now it's time to catch up on a few things before I head home from work. I'm wore out! ... Read more
Smells like...
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      2 comments

These unbelievable mid-February temps are making it enjoyable to get outside again. As I left the house this morning, it didn't take long to figure out that had overdressed for the weather. No need for gloves or my hood this morning. Getting out... Read more
