One of my early memories as a child was visiting with my grandparents in Hillsboro, Texas.  Snow in the Hill Country of Texas is very rare.  So, it was one of those rare mornings when we woke up to discover that it had snowed.  It was my first snow, and I remember running outside so excited.

My grand...

I have a family trip planned.  All the family is going.  It involves airplane flights with several changes.  It involves coordinating the schedules of seven different people.  

I am writing this the morning after my dreams were filled with nightmares:  the fear of missing my flights, and one of...

Monday morning was busy but I had time to go home for lunch.  As I got home, the news was reporting smoke coming from the Notre Dame Cathedral. I got busy for the next 45 minutes but before heading back to work, I looked over at the television with my wife watching it.  The spire at the cathedral had just col...

My oldest son, Josh, works in my office.  Once a year, he and I retire to the woods to review the office for the year.  It helps us make a plan for the upcoming year. 

As I write this, Josh and I are conducting our annual meeting.  This year, however, a very cold front and snowstorm has left us with...

I am like most people.  I tend to do the same things the same way, over and over. Even in church, I gravitate to the east side, sitting in about the same pew each Sunday.


Sunday (December 9) I was running a little late. So as to disturb as few people as possible, I slipped in on the west side of the United Me...

Recently I have been relating some lessons from a vacation my wife and I took this summer.  We spent a couple weeks in the mountains of Colorado.

While there, we had a rotation of visitors.  They included friends and family members.

I enjoy hiking.  I have an old backpack that I keep packed for hikes.  It inclu...
