Sorry guys. I think I promised not to use my blog for newsletters and self-promotion! Ugh. But again, I’m up against a timeline and so wanted to let everyone know how God has answered prayers and opened doors. Please forgive the format. Abraham heard from God at Ur. God spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai. […]

Some things I’ll just never understand this side of heaven. A friend said to me recently, “I don’t want to go to hell over a mystery.” I know exactly what he was saying even though I believe once saved always saved. If I edited that statement and made it mine it’d go like this: “I […]

Prayer works. Plain and simple. I like it when the answer to prayer is “yes.” Don’t like it so much when the answer is “no.” And it’s hard sometimes for me to really accept that “no” is an answer—just not the answer I want. There’s also a third answer to prayer God gives us: wait. […]

Retarded. That’s what we called folks back in the day when I was an MR education major at Southwest Texas State. MR = Mental retardation. I was actually a member of a group called TARs: Teens Aid the Retarded. But people started frowning on calling kids retarded. So, it went from retarded to mentally handicapped. […]

The Power of Gratitude

Is it possible to be grateful for gratitude? I think maybe I am. I was talking about this with Big D the other day and I just kept thinking, “Gratitude is a gift from God!” Thankfulness is one thing, but gratitude is a whole ‘nother country. Being grateful means recognizing the importance of the source […]

Thursdays are trash days around here. I love trash days. I love the idea that we can go through the house and load up all our accumulative trash, put it out at the end of the driveway and know that it’ll be picked up and taken care of. I’ve lived in countries where there is […]

I’ve always wanted to be from a big ol’ ethnic family that was noisy, argued a lot and ate good food. I wasn’t even particular about the kind of ethnic family it was; just that it was big, loud, noisy and that they ate amazing food around big noisy tables. Okay, so the table doesn’t […]

Tony Blair once said that he measures a country by how many people are trying to get out and how many people are trying to get in. In some cases in the US he could have accurately said, how many people are dying to get in. The US is still drawing tens of thousands of […]
