where’s the coffee . . . except I only drink decaf

It’s obviously been very busy in my world as this blog has been shoved to the back of the pile. And even when I’ve thought that I should blog or I want to, I haven’t been able to get my thoughts out. Just too much going on right now. However, we’re way overdue. So let’s get at it and see what happens. In the midst of teaching my class...

how’s your perspective?

So the month of September was a complete blur. I can’t even believe that time is going as quickly as it is. Nor do I want to think about my to do list. I should be cleaning the bathroom, tackling the pile of stuff that we tried to pack in a suitcase and send with Mark’s parents but couldn’t due to weight, folding laundry, and planning dinner. Yet...

I’ve been wanting and needing to blog and have had absolutely no time to do it. Not to mention that both Edie and I have been sick and our schedule has hit the ultimate level of busyness. I have all of 20 minutes to write now, so let’s see what we can do with it. Mark’s parents come this week, and we are so, so looking forward to seeing them....

I drove 17 hours west with my sister last weekend as I went with her to South Lake Tahoe where she will be a student of missions for 6 weeks. I’ve made the drive between Colorado and...

on depression and suicide

Ever since reading the news that Robin Williams had died, I’ve been thinking on death and depression. And honestly, I had to just get off of social media, because so many people’s words bothered me. As if any of us knew the actor, as if any of us absolutely know where he is now, and as if it’s our place to even give our opinion on his life and death. It just...

to wait on the Lord

I woke up at 5 this morning, and since the house was perfectly quiet, I decided to stay up and put in a good amount of prayer time. I’ve desperately needed some quiet time with the Lord. I’ve needed to hear from Him, get some wisdom, and learn how to walk out this path that we’re on. And I heard one thing this morning, which was “wait on...
