Audience of One

Today I was in our kitchen preparing dinner for the family. Elizabeth and I try to share a lot of the household things in life, and it’s a joy to build a life with her every step of the way. Given that we both are involved in ton of work activities that go beyond 8 […]

Stretch Armstrong

My work life is always a bit of a stretch for me but my personal life, now that Elizabeth and I are married, is calming down to a beautiful, wonderful routine that is our cross stitch of life.  It might be a bit hectic on the back side of logistics, but the front is a […]

Connections

I saw a star this morning, I know, there are billions of them but I am telling the truth when I say, I haven’t seen any for months. It’s a hard discovery when you realize  that you are moving so fast that you miss the big things of life that are so small, yet so […]

Christmas Memories on a Note

It’s dark and early in the morning, which gives me time to reflect as I am sitting in my living room with the only light coming from the Christmas tree.

The Tax Collector and Jeff

It’s the early hours of Sunday morning the weekend after Thanksgiving. It’s been busy  the last month and as this time of year promises, it will only get more busy. I normally don’t sleep well but try on the weekends, to get a little more sleep than I do during the work week. Last night, […]

Thank you Jesus for Mercy

Today was a tough day at the ranch where Elizabeth works. The organization, Hope Reins, is dedicated to using rescued horses to rescue people. It was a tough call and a difficult day, but the decision had to be made let their huge Belgian draft mare take her final run. ‘Mercy’, as she was called, […]
