Nice Saturday
Saturday, April 30, 2011      3 comments

I was able to enjoy a nice run this morning with some near-perfect weather. That along with a good night's sleep enabled me to make the run in near record time. Obviously, world class runners will not have to worry about me, but it feels good to... Read more
Looking Less Like a Home :(
Friday, April 29, 2011      3 comments

Our house is starting to look somewhat bare. We've already begun taking stuff off of the walls and getting ready for an upcoming garage sale in a couple of weeks. It's hard to believe how much stuff one can accumulate by living in the same house... Read more
A Little Better Day

We were able to get some encouraging news yesterday. It looks like we have another house to rent in another part of town. This is one of many homes that are for sale in our community, so the owner was happy to allow us to go month-to-month, and ... Read more
Stinky news

Somedays it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. Please pray for us, as the condo we thought we were going to be able to rent on a month-to-month basis after we move out of our house at the end of next month fell through. Actually, it is a snotty... Read more
Trying to look past the gloom

It was nice to get out for a run this morning with temps in the mid 50's. Hopefully, our rain will end soon, since it is causing some flooding issues in the low-lying areas around the river. A gloomy morning can make it challenging to focu... Read more
Nice Easter

Yesterday was an enjoyable time at Open Door. We were blessed with several visitors who joined us for a carry-in breakfast which featured all sorts of things that I probably shouldn't eat. My wife was gracious enough to bring a couple of trays o... Read more

As I got out of bed this morning, I was reminded of the One Who got out of the grave nearly 2,000 years ago. Today is the day that believers around the world remember that the borrowed tomb where Jesus' body was lain was only used for the weeke... Read more
Disappointing News

Yesterday was another frustrating day in our search for our next place of service. Yesterday evening, I received a call from a search committee chairman of a church where i was one of the final candidates (4 out of 160). Evidently I am once agai... Read more

I have always found it strange that we name this day, "Good Friday", especially in light of what took place on this day nearly 2,000 years ago. However, the longer I am His child the more keenly I am aware of just how amazing this sacrifice for ... Read more
Fake Friday

It was another cool morning for a run today. The temp was at about 40 degrees F, which is a little cooler than we were experiencing at the beginning of the week. Since I have tomorrow off as a part of the Easter weekend, I am looking forward to ... Read more

It was rather chilly outside for my run this morning. After getting used to temps in the 50's and 60's the past few days, 40 degrees was a little colder than what I have been used to. However, I was able to get in a good run this morning and doi... Read more

Last night was going well until someone started hitting golf balls at our house at about 3:45 a.m. Of course, I am talking about the hailstorm that we had in Jeff City, MO last night. Fortunately, it didn't break any windows at our place, but it... Read more
Back in the Office

After a busy but enjoyable weekend, it's good to be back in the office. With all the changes that are looming for our family over the next few weeks, it's good to know that God is in control. Since our house has already sold, and we close the en... Read more
It's Sunday!

It's hard to believe that these meetings are coming to an end this morning. It has been a great four days. Hopefully, God can use some of what we have done to further His Kingdom and accomplish His desires. Praying for energy and transparen... Read more

The pastor of the church where we are serving this weekend took us to a small town just to the north in Iowa. We visited the Milton Creamery and a Mennonite store in another town. Following that we visited a local coffee shop and headed back to ... Read more
