Reflection From Poland Mission Trip

In the early morning hours of this past Monday, I was finally able to lay my head down on my own pillow after 20+ hours of traveling from Central Europe back to good 'ol Oklahoma. As strange as it may sound, my mind just wasn't quite ready to shut down for the day. I began to reflect back on the previous week and all that it entailed. Our group of nine that served as volun...

Hang In there

As I write this, I'm almost a month into a diet. To say the least, I'm a little behind on my New Year's Resolution. I'll let you in on a little secret: at this point, the jury is still out on whether or not I'm going to succeed. Some days are relatively easy; while others, the clock seems to slow to a halt as I think about what I'm going to eat next. I'm hungry and it's no...

A Cold Day at Grand Central

At the end of last year, my family had the opportunity to take a vacation to New York City. We had a fantastic time although I was very glad to come back to Western Oklahoma. One of the afternoons as we were sight-seeing, we stopped by Grand Central Station. If you're not familiar with Grand Central, this is one of the hubs of the underground and above ground train systems...

It was an incredible experience for me, and I am thankful to God for allo...

We have also had over 40 people volunteer to bring snacks and help with c...

Sports

If you know much about me, you know that I love sports. Just about any kind of sports, it doesn't have to be the highest level of any particular sport. I love the camaraderie, I love the competition, I love the storylines, and most of all I just love watching "my team" with my family. Win or lose I love those times. You know the old saying, "the family that enjoys the high...

Never The Same

When it comes to books and movies, I'm a pushover for a happy ending. I just don't understand the thinking that says I'm OK with stories not ending in a positive way. It just seems like a waste of time to me. One such happy ending that I recently was reminded of is the story of Don and Carol Richardson who were missionaries back in the early 60s. They felt the call of God ...

Get It Out!!

A few weeks ago, as our evening was winding down, I was in the back of the house getting ready for bed when I heard a bloodcurdling scream coming from Kathleen in the living room. It seems as though someone (probably me) had left the backdoor open just a bit to allow a little bit of cool breeze to come through the house. Well, seizing on that opportunity, a small snake dec...
