12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. 13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. 14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. 15 Make us […]

No Complaining

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose....

Everyone Has a Story

Look around you right now. Go ahead...It’s o.k. Most likely, there is another person within view. Are they happy, sad, stressed, struggling, busy? No matter who they are or what they are feeling, wearing or doing, they have a story, a soul and something worth sharing....

Miller, the Sheep

Campouts are tons of fun and also tons of work, but we were all greeted at the Milliron’s farm this past weekend with a friendly fellow, named Miller. Miller is the Milliron’s only sheep. Leif whispered to me that Miller isn’t too bright so I immediately became...

Life Is Hard

Life is hard, and we have all been slapped around from time to time by life’s hard hits. The question is, What do we do about it?  Do we respond or react?   Lately I have been reading a handwritten book that my mom gave me before I went to college.  I’ve shared...

Great Stories

Can You Imagine?

Last Friday night, Whitney and I went to watch Connor Kelley play football for the Oak Mountain High School Eagles. He is an animal on special teams. He is also an outside line backer, but he told me that I probably would not see him on the field on defense unless...

Neighbors

My neighbors on both sides of us are elderly and extraordinary. When Whitney and I moved back to Birmingham sixteen years ago, we hadn’t been here long when Hurricane Ivan hit. Our neighbors called us on the phone and said, “Get over here. Bring your family and your...

It Is Well With My Soul

When peace like a river, attendeth my way. When sorrows like sea billows roll; Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, It is well, It is well with my soul. My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part but the whole, Is nailed to the cross,...

Flipping Pancakes

Vision

Do you ever see pictures or experience breathtaking scenery that make you wish you could live there? Then, for weeks and possibly months or longer you find yourself daydreaming about your life there? As time continues, you start making plans to revisit that place with...

Astronomy

Have you ever been outside on a clear night in the middle of nowhere, looked up at the night sky, and saw billions of stars? When we were in Colorado, we were treated to that production at the Estes Park Memorial Observatory. Our guide was an Aerospace Engineer and...

Shedding Antlers

Have you ever seen elk in the Rocky Mountains? My family and I just got back from our family vacation in Colorado.  The kids had never seen elk in the wild, but now they can say that they have seen hundreds and witnessed dad pulling over a gazillion times to take even...
