My schedule has gotten a bit busier this week and I expect it will so for the next 2 weeks. The reason for this increase in activity is in anticipation of taking some time off in September. Camille and I are currently planning to be away for about 10 days. We anticipate connecting with some… Read More »
Living in “the Land of Supposed to”
Last week, Camille and I were making our weekly trip to the grocery story. Masks were on and as we proceeded to the grocery carts I noticed a rather unnerving site. I noticed that the grocery carts that were supposed to be available to customers, you know the one’s which were supposed to be sanitized… Read More »
A Parable from the World of Track & Field
When I was 14 years old and in 8th grade I wanted to be on the Track and Field team. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that I wanted people to think I was a good athlete. The truth is that I really wasn’t that crazy about it! I decided that I wanted… Read More »
If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that much of what I have written about has to do with vision or eyes. I guess I think that what I am supposed to be doing with this blog is getting us to thinking about the way things seem to us and… Read More »
Life on a Cruise Ship
Camille and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruises we have been able to experience. There are several aspects of cruising that we particularly appreciate. First, we like the idea of being out of reach from so much social media and the distractions that often come from technology. We both love the idea of getting dressed up… Read More »

Like you, I am feeling the pressure and confusion related to Covid 19. When will the virus subside? When will people feel safe to resume activities? When will I stop… Read More »
It’s OK….You can call me 4-eyes!
I can still remember how excited I was to get my first pair of glasses. I guess no one told me or perhaps I wasn’t listening to anybody who told me wearing glasses would be anything other than “neat”! Once I got them, I noticed 2 things: first, I noticed how really poorly I had… Read More »
Free…to Keep Silent!
Let’s play a game! What do the following have in common? Drinking, smoking, watching TV, dancing, mixed swimming, movie theaters, tattoos, rock & roll Did you figure it out? For me, these are all subject or activities that I have heard sermons condemning as things Christians shouldn’t do! Yes, I know! I had to reach… Read More »
When Right is Still Wrong!
I was thinking the other day about conflict and my mom. My mom was a common-sense kind of lady who wasn’t afraid to tell you what she believed the truth to be. Occasionally my generally sweet mom would be pushed to her limit by 2 ornery sons. When conflict broke out between my brother and… Read More »
Ready or not!
The phone rang about noon. The voice on the other end of the line was frantic. The best I could tell from what little sense this person was making is that there had been an accident…on a farm…involving an 11 year old boy…and please hurry. I immediately jumped in my car and traveled the distance… Read More »
