Another Week … And A Repeated Exhortation

Posted by on Feb 23, 2017 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Writer's Diary

Catalogued inventory for eBay, to further fund the well and other endeavors.

It’s hard to believe another seven days have passed, and I am doing another weekly post. I feel as if I just completed the last one. Life is like that these days. I already discussed as much last week and mentioned the busy-ness of this current season in other posts as well.

Yes, life is passing quickly and full of things to do. This week, I’m going to keep things very short and simple (well, to the degree I’m able anyway). In a sense, I’ll be repeating myself from last week, but some things bear repeating.

A Feeling in the Air

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Water Project, Writer's Diary

It’s like running a toy store, only without the glitz and glamour..

Right now, I’m exhausted. Chances are that you are too. Most people to whom I speak are these days.
We’re tired.
We’re spent.
And we see no sign of resting—well, I do, but that’s only because I force myself to take a day away from my various jobs. Six days out of  Seven, I feel the heat of burning the candle at both ends.

And as I said, I know I am not alone. When most folks ask how I am, I usually tell them as much; they admit the same. We’re both relieved. It’s wonderfully cathartic.

On Writing, Again.

Posted by on Jan 26, 2017 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Water Project, Writer's Diary


I’m writing on the regular again.

And I love it. I feel like it’s something I do well and ought to do. I wish I could do it more. For this month, I am just trying to make sure I spend at least 15-20 minutes, 5-6 days a week. I think that’s enough time to keep the muscles functioning, though they’re not likely to improve. Sometimes we can only aim do what we believe we can.

The Planner Debacle of 2017 : January 19, 2017

Posted by on Jan 19, 2017 in Faith, Hope, and Love, RandoMusings, Water Project, Writer's Diary

Right now life is good. I try to savor every day. I have a beautiful wife, a wonderful son, a job I enjoy, and I feel like I am where I’m supposed to be.

It’s a very good feeling, and I am soaking in it.

With things going so well, I can only assume that they would get better if I would become even more efficient, so for 2017 I decided to get a planner—not a new app or a Google calendar, but a real tangible planner.

LIFE & SUCH : January 12, 2017

Posted by on Jan 12, 2017 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Fun-funs, Water Project, Writer's Diary

Hi Everyone,

2017 is shaping up to be a pretty tremendous year. At this time in 2016, Landon was still living in the womb, we were renters, and I was struggling at work in hopes of taking next steps in our family’s future.

We begin this year with Landon in our arms or on his play mat, growing more wonderfully each day as he tries to stand, eats solid food, and discovers his sweet little voice. We’re making those good ol’ fashioned Mortgage payments on our first owned home. Jamie continues to adapt to the ever-changing rhythms of being a stay-at-home mom while I am loving my 8-5 job on a new career path in a different, healthy environment.

Yes, things are looking great, and there’s more!!!!
