Be Mine

You know those little heart-shaped candies they give out as Valentine’s gifts?  The ones with the little words or phrases printed on them? I’ve never been a fan of them, personally – they taste like antacid to me – but I find them amusing, nonetheless.  They always have these trite little sayings on them (“Soul Mate,” “Crazy 4…

Perspective!

It has always been amazing to me how our perspective of a given situation determines, to a large extent, our response to that circumstance. One of the more humorous examples I could give to prove my point is simply to watch any crowd at any high school basketball game.

Worst Call Ever…

After a scandalous season, why would the Patriots win the Super Bowl Championship without there being a little drama? This Super Bowl ended in one of the most controversial coaching calls in history. As the Seahawks stood at the 1-yard line with arguably the best NFL running back in the backfield, they decided to throw the ball. Best running back and no big time…

He’s Got My Back!

So let me just start off by admitting, I have problems. I know, I am too young and everything, but I have been having back problems since October. These back problems only bother me when I lay down to sleep. So naturally, I don’t sleep well. I can’t remember the last time I got a full night’s sleep and woke up feeling rested. It doesn’t happen. Most of the time, I wake up…

The Waiting Game

Why does waiting have to be so difficult? Proverbs 13:12 is one of the most interesting Scriptures I have come across. It says: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” I find that Scripture interesting because it is so gut-level honest with us. We want what we want when we want it! When we find ourselves having to…

Reboot

Have you ever had some piece of electronic equipment quit working? I have an electronic piano in my office at the church that I use to play through the songs we use in our worship service each week and make sure I have everything planned out smoothly.  I’ve had this particular piece of equipment for over ten years, which means that it’s pretty obsolete as…

When Life Gives You Lemons…

My first blog was named R-E-L-A-X, and I felt convicted when I wrote it. Since then, life has been a roller coaster and I have had to take my own advice in heaping spoonfuls! That’s right, I have been stressed a bit too much for my liking, but I know it’s all to show me WHERE and WHOM my foundation is. 

Next Man Up

We witnessed history.  Now, maybe it wasn’t the changing the world kind of history that you tell you grandkids about someday, but it was history none the less.  Not many people gave the Ohio State Buckeyes a chance at winning the first football National Championship in the new playoff era.  I certainly did not give them much of a look, especially after both their starting…
