See You at the Top!

A few days ago I was inspired when I saw my daughter’s Instagram post: “Intensely grateful for the role this man (Zig Ziglar) played in my life for so many years. Next to my father, his words, encouragement and life shaped my perspective like no other. I give thanks that he was able to call…

What Does Your List Look Like?

No doubt, my list is very different from yours. For my Frisco grandson and granddaughter, their list probably includes: ~ Pack for Guatemala missions trip (they leave Monday for 7 days with 55 other students); ~ Buy items needed for the trip; ~ Get household chores completed; ~ Get some extra zzz’s before leaving, because…

Safe in the Eye of the Storm

Yesterday, I posted about BEING the eye of the storm and today I’m taking it a notch up. Oftentimes, no matter the peace and calm we represent or the peace and calm we are in, still unexpected stuff happens which really reveals whether we’re just talking the talk, or actually walking the walk!

BE the EYE of the Storm

I remember my 7th grade science class enough to know about the “eye” of the storm — that still, calm, quiet place in the middle of a storm. As I read the post I made 7 years ago during one of the greatest storms of our lives, I realized that God kept us in the…

Birthdays Really Matter

I’m heading back home today after several days of celebrating my son’s birthday with his entire family. How precious for me to be able to be there for all the festivities and moments of sheer awesomeness. And, what a joy for me to be able to hang with the older kids because our sleeping arrangements…

What Does 50 Look Like?

Well, to our boys — with an onery streak — it looks like these remarks to their dad: “Dad, you might need to get a walker for the next trip.” and with an add-on from another brother, “with the tennis balls on the bottom”. After Ryan was crying from the sheer emotion of love given…

Celebrating the Gift of Life

Round and rround she goes, where she stops nobody knows. That’s me that I’m talking about. On the road again….in the air again. Yesterday I travelled to Mexico to be a part of sweet family celebrations for my son’s 50th birthday. This milestone birthday would seem to big enough to invite the Who’s Who folks…
