Hiking in Heaven

I believe God speaks to us and in my case He does so with a picture snapshot.  As I start to talk about the the picture, the story it has to tell starts to unfold.  The image is persistent and the story is always encouraging. Today we laid to rest Margaret Weagley, mother of four […]

Dude! Are you wearing bracelets?

Kinda.  They are Bajan bangles and they remind me of a country and a people that I will love forever and that have inspired and shaped me from a very young age. In 1966 the nation of Barbados was born as it peacfully established it’s independence from England.  My parents, still child-free, thought it an […]

Moved and rebuilt!

Sorry about the extended absence. In June 2010 I changed jobs and while headed for and ramping up on this new adventure I lost some traction and then my blog was irrecoverably corrupted. The clock had been ticking on my “friend hosted” model, so things were really conspiring to move my blog. To add insult […]

Not Unemployed

Recently I irreverently joked that my recent job change has left me temporarily “unemployed”.  Conviction came knocking on my conscious. I have not felt the rejection of the losing lot in a lay-off. I have not experienced the humility of learning I was not all that I thought I was cracked up to be. I […]

Politicians Think You Are an Idiot!

Ok.  Me too.  They think you and I are idiots. As local and state leaders respond to the budgetary impact of the economy induced tax base erosion, their opinion of their constituents intellect is becoming abundantly clear. Here is the politicians favorite budget plan being exercised across the country right now: Propose draconian cuts to […]

The Cadillac, Minivan and Chevette

Yesterday President Obama compelled Democratic leaders to drop their opposition to imposing the so-called “Cadillac Tax” on higher end insurance plans to help pay for the near $1 Trillion healthcare reform bill.  By his own admission he finds these plans pay too rich a benefit and cost too much, so why not tax them too. […]

More Than Enough to be Dangerous

This month I spent my spare time moving this blog from WordPress.com to a hosted site.  The flexibility I was looking for in the hosted site quickly brought me face-to-face with the oft cited need for bloggers to have at least some HTML and CSS skills.  But have you ever looked at CSS? While there […]

Boyle-ing like Simon Cowell

If you have an internet connection, you have undoubtedly heard about and even seen the Susan Boyle episode of Britain’s Got Talent on YouTube.   But did you catch the real lesson behind Simon and the frumpy spinster from a small UK village, who walked on stage to snickers and doubt, and walked off a super […]

Precious Time

Precious time. Time to go to bed.  What, already? Time to get up.  What, already? Snooze just a little longer. “Quiet time” with God. I need to exercise more. Time to blog. A bite on the fly. Drop the kids. Get to work. The meeting ran long. Late!  Running behind. Time. The report needs a […]

Too Busy for Our Mission

Busyness has turned into an epidemic.   At home, at work, at church even in down time.  The most common response I get when inquiring with friends and business associates is “I’ve been so busy!”   The constant change, doing more with less, a deluge of projects, running kids around to activities and even our leisure time […]
