I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus and count them but rubbish.

Dog Days

August 5, 2008

Received a new member of the family today. Very nice and loving dog named Honey. That was her name at the kennel and at a year old seems too hard to try and change now. She is a Labrador. She is very loving and very kind. We look forward to our new life together. Advertisements

Mission Trip Notes: When They Get It

July 19, 2008

Above is the team of Southside Christian Church and El Bethel Christian Church serving at the Church of Christ. As a trip coordinator and subsequent recruiter one of the hardest things to do it tell people adequately what it is like to go on a mission trip. What it feels like and what excitement awaits […]

Just Listen

July 4, 2008

Sometimes its hard to know when to respond or just listen. I think this is even harder to control for guys who will start thinking of how to fix it. This is even harder for guys with wives who just want you to listen instead of fixing it. Advice at times is often very hard […]

10K Worth of Something

June 11, 2008

Well not only have I neglected my blog but a long awaited moment of achievement came and past during my neglect. For shame. Despite my neglect there have been 10,000 viewings or visits to my blog. Not too bad for a year. I think the sign above says it all. Thanks Warning Sign Generator. And […]

Everybody’s Somebody’s EGP

February 11, 2008

We have all probably heard the expression. “Oh, that person is a EGP…” Now some call them EGP or others EGR. It either means Extra Grace Person or Extra Grace Required. And you know that there are those who for whatever reason get to us. They are overbearing, snippy, clumsy, anal, disorganized, rude, too happy, […]

Blessed Assurance

November 1, 2007

This was on Way of the Master yesterday. It was really touching. You can hear Todd read it by clicking the date 10-31-07 and downloading hour 1 or go to to read it.  In short it tells of the pain of a man losing one of life’s most valuable possessions, his son. But he can […]

Good Point about Christian Books

April 29, 2007

My friend Brandon has got me ranting about this. In his blog post, “The Gospel According to Jesus Christ,” he goes off on the inability to find a good book at Barnes and Noble. As an addition here is, “I have Angst.”  It is annoying when you go and there is nothing but junk to read. […]

Growing Up Too Fast

April 25, 2007

A recent article I read on MSN prompted me to post this thought. I think the article is right on when they say many toys, shows and other products are targeted at this tween age. It forces them into a grown up state of mind perhaps before they should be. I especially don’t like the […]

The Right Choice

April 17, 2007

You would have to live in a cave to not know about the recent events that are taking place at Virginia Tech. Before I jump into my thoughts about a directly related topic I want to say how much we all surely feel the hurt for this event. Occurrences like this only fuel our understanding […]

Leaving Too Early

April 6, 2007

I am not a big Bob Huggins fan by any means. And this is not meant to bash him in anyway. As you will see its more of a leading into another question. It was confirmed that Bob Huggins (BH) would be leaving Kansas State as the head B-ball coach to go to coach at West Virginia this next season. […]
