TGI (fill in the blank)
Friday, February 13, 2009      0 comments

Today's huddles were full of TGIF posts. Wayne Dyer says this is a terrible sentiment. Imaging spending 86% of your life looking forward to the remaining 14%. That is the TGIF attitude. No matter what day it is you should thank God for the d... Read more
A Visit to the Medicine Man
Thursday, February 12, 2009      0 comments

Went to see the doc this morning. All my blood work was good. Cholesterol is good, tri-glycerides are good. Blood pressure is toward the high end and he would like it reduced a bit. He gave me a choice of stronger meds or lose 15 pounds. I ... Read more

Tuesday, February 10, 2009      0 comments

This is akin to don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to meet it. Into every life a little rain must fall. People of faith tell us the Lord will never give us more than we can handle. Sometimes I wish He didn't have so much confidence... Read more

Thoughts on Huddling
Sunday, February 08, 2009      0 comments

It would be so easy to just log on to my Spark Teams and mindlessly press one of the buttons for a canned huddle thought. I admit that I do this some days when time is more precious than the essence but usually, I try to think of a truly inspir... Read more

The weatherman was right so far. It's supposed toi be in the mid to high 60's for the next week. Today is bright and clear and looks to be headed that way! It's nice to be able to walk outside in just shirt sleeves or a light sweater. The co... Read more

We tried a new restaurant last night. We had been driving by it daily on the way to and from work and decided to give it a try. It was a seafood restaurant and I decided to try the shrimp lovers' feast. I like shrimp because it is almost a fr... Read more

Groundhog Day

That Yankee groundhog saw his shadow so they will have six more weeks of winter. Our more genteel Southern Groundhog did not see his shadow so our spring is just around the corner. Yea!... Read more
Super Bowl and Groundhogs
Sunday, February 01, 2009      0 comments

Today is the annual eat fest known as Super Bowl Sunday. I have read all of the hints to keep it from being fatal so I'll hopefully survive without tipping the scales any more tomorrow than I do today. Today dawned bright and beautiful. T... Read more
Wonderful Weekend
Saturday, January 31, 2009      0 comments

The day dawned bright and clear, our reward for some pretty dreary weather through the week. Today my agenda is absolutely chock full of nothing! Every now and then we need a day of nothing, just kick back and let the batteries recharge. That... Read more
