Switchfoot @ Six Flags St. Louis

September 11, 2011

The Switchfoot concert I attended yesterday was fantastic. – Maybe it was fantastic because of the weather: I was blown away when it was raining and sunny and a rainbow spread across the park. We are so blessed by this beautiful world. May we treat this precious gift with the dignity that His generosity demands. […]

My Phone, The Chew Toy

It’s marred and unseemly… but it still functions. These words will haunt me for awhile. When I got up at 4:30, I really  didn’t want to get moving. But my life has mission and purpose. So I  got up and got prepared for the morning commute. Everything was progressing to plan until I went to […]

Some of you have been asking me where the prenuptial posts have been.  I have been loathe to post about the subject because there is still a great deal of emotional turmoil surrounding the situation.  So without further fanfare, I am announcing that the upcoming marriage of Bailey and Daniel has been postponed. While the […]

It is a bright and beautiful Saturday morning.  In one week, my third daughter will be getting married.  The whole family is abuzz with anticipation – and a little bit of dread. As you know (if you’ve read my posts recently), my first daughter got married in late May.  And despite all predictions to the […]

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31  Therefore, since we are […]

What Isn’t In The Cloud?

June 4, 2011

Cloud computing has been around for as long as there have been computers.  When I was in high school, I was involved in “cloud gaming.”  Yeah, it wasn’t the same kind of thing back in 1976-1979.  But I could connect the school’s remote terminal to the district’s mainframe.  From this connection, I programmed (and played) […]

I am so very excited.  Our program manager (who works for the United States Marine Corps) has asked us to attend the Get Motivated seminar that will be in Kansas City on May 31.  The list of attendees is truly remarkable.  I am amazed that so many important and inspirational people will be in the […]

T+1: You Can Only Imagine

I don’t know where to start.  So I’ll start with the only phrase that makes sense: praise God!  I have a new son-in-law, I hope. [More about the hope below.] Yesterday is a complete and total blur.  I think I’ll be blogging about it for a while.  But here are the highlights: Meredith was more […]

T-1: Focus, Grasshopper

May 20, 2011

It’s early Friday morning. The house is quiet – except for when Grizzly (Adam’s dog) jostles Jayden’s cheerleader doll. Then there is a moment of apprehension as I fear that everyone will awaken. Fortunately, things settle back down. So in this moment of calm, I find myself surfing the web and looking at Twitter trending […]

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. Amidst all of the commotion […]
