After reading a passage in Psalms and reflecting on some things in and around my life – I have begun some evaluation.  These are some random questions I began to ask myself: Who do I trust?  Why?

Unfinished Business

During the lunch break on Thursday I was standing there and Tim said something to me like this, “Are you OK?  You look like you are in deep thought or something is bothering you…”  I was OK.  I think I was stunned after that first message.  Andy Stanley talked about 3 specific things and how … More Unfinished Business

Better than Gore-Tex

I don’t know what the latest and greatest material is these days… I can recall Gore-Tex being the material to wear when in the great outdoors.
