10 Years and 4 Years

Today marked the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01, the horrible day the US was attacked multiple times by hijacked airplanes, and thousands died, as well as the 4th anniversary of Skyler’s birth. It’s always a bit of a strange day for those two things to share; one sorrow, one joy, but today was especially different. Ten …

Good Things

Friday’s text message conversation with my friend: Me: I am suspicious… Her: Of what? Me: Things! Her: Um….good things or bad things? What happened?

But according to the Bible, there is a time for everything. I love these verses because they help me focus on living a balanced life …

Invitation

Skyler’s first birthday is fast approaching. We aren’t doing the big hooplah which a lot of people do for their kids’ first birthdays these days. I’m just not up to it, and frankly, I probably won’t ever make much of a big deal until she can remember it, in which case I might be inclined …
