Testing #ToyTimeTogether again

Posted by on Nov 5, 2019 in Faith, Hope, and Love

Lots of #toytimetogether between appointments today!

Putting toys on daddy’s back so he can’t get up, followed by a #Pixar #fisherprice #imaginext #pizaaplanet party full of #toystory and #dccomics Heroes, and finally #spaceranger training camp interrupted by #pikachu .

Not a bad afternoon.

Testing #ToyTimeTogether

So I have been posting the gram again, mainly collages of my enjoying toys with my son. Lots of fun stuff, and it appeared that Instagram was going to allow me to share the content posted there on the blog…

I am Ready to Post Now.

I don’t know who you are. Or when you are reading this.

But here you are, so here it goes:

If things are going well for you right now, breathe deeply and savor the good. The bad is coming. It always does this side of eternity, and it will again. That’s the ebb and flow of the mortal coil—good and bad, in fits and starts, in either direction and back again. And that’s okay. Just because the reprieve is not “happily ever after” does not mean the hard times will break you. On the contrary, if you have your head and soul focused on whom they should be, you’ll come through the storm a little stronger. You may savor the next period of good a little more deeply as a result. If it’s good right now, embrace it. Cherish it–but not too tightly–seasons change.


But my guess is that you are more likely struggling, hurting, or wrestling. I feel that most persons with whom I speak these days are. It’s a rough time for a great many of us, individually and collectively. If things are not going so well, breathe deeply and savor the good, but engage the hurt, the pain, and the heartache. Don’t bury it; it’ll fester. It’ll kill you on the deep, and that infection will make its way to the surface. Trust me. I know. I’m proof.

2018 is finished. 2019 has begun.

Posted by on Feb 2, 2019 in Faith, Hope, and Love


Well, here’s the deal. The last two weeks in January held more mental and emotional challenges than I had expected. And spiritual ones. Social ones, also. Plus the professional and financial ones.

2018 was a rough year. 2019 is continuing the trend. 

And it’s only February.

That being said, I did not do the stoic, deep dive into 2018 that I desired, but this does not mean I did not think on it.
