Spring Break

Spring break for Southeastern University has arrived, and I am taking full advantage of it. A family reunion has been in the planning for nearly two years, and this is the week for it. It will take place on a cruise ship as we stop at Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas. I’m not taking my laptop with me; for much of the time I will be blissfully removed from everyday life. Everyone needs a break now and then…. Read more »

Grandpa Day

For all of you who check in to this blog regularly—thank you. Today, however, I am concentrating on being the best grandpa I can as I take four grandsons to Legoland. So I hope you will pray for my stamina and come back tomorrow for something somewhat more substantive. May this day be a blessing for you as well.

I’ll Be Back in 2013

I’ve decided to take a break for the next week. It doesn’t mean I won’t be pondering; it just means I won’t be sharing what I’m pondering. Please come back in the New Year. May God surprise you with blessings until then.

Thanksgiving Break

No, the title of my post today doesn’t mean I’m taking a break from being thankful. I will be quite thankful this week as I spend time with my extended family. But I am going to take a break from the blog for this week. I’ll be back next Monday. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and may you recognize the Source of all that for which you are thankful.

I Shall Return

I’ll be absent from my blog for the next few days as I drive my wife back to Florida after surgery in New Orleans. All went well. A special thanks to all who prayed. I promise I shall return. In the meantime, if you missed any recent postings, here’s your chance to catch up. I posted yesterday’s so late I’m not sure as many people as usual caught it. It’s about journalistic integrity, or the lack thereof, surrounding the Aurora… Read more »

Thank You

I would like to thank all of the readers of this blog who offered up prayer for my wife, Jan, for her surgery last Thursday. She is now home and recuperating. It will be a painful recovery for quite a while, and the cancer treatments of one type or another will continue until next June. Yet it feels good to have this part of the journey behind us; we now look ahead to what awaits as we continue to hope… Read more »

Difficult Journey

Tomorrow, my wife, Jan, goes in for breast cancer surgery. It’s been a long and difficult journey thus far, and will continue well into next summer. Her chemo treatments are now finished, but after surgery, radiation awaits. I’m going to be taking a short vacation from blogging over the next few days. I’ll return again sometime next week. In the meantime, those of you who pray can focus those prayers on the doctors’ skills, no complications, and a rapid recovery…. Read more »
