    Down Time is Good

    I returned from our weekend lake trip. Had a great time. The weather was perfect – could not have been any better for boating; skiing; and fishing. I bought a fishing license for the first time in my life and went for a late night fishing excursion. Didn’t catch a thing; not even a nibble. Two others in the boat were able to catch tree stumps but those don’t fry up well – no matter how much batter you coat on. We had a great time just hanging out and experiencing community. I was able to see some friends that I had not seen in a long while – almost…

    T.G.I.F

    We had a good night at club last night. A few new children to the group which was great. Despite the rain, we had 10 youth come out to help. Way to go, y’all. I love you and appreciate you.

    Snares and Traps

    A New Journey

    Today’s a great day so far. I broke one of my toes as I was getting out of the shower. At least you know that I shower! It’s all black and blue now. Pretty, huh? So, to help with the pain I decided to have a Coke and M&Ms. It always seems to help. We have another night of Backyard Bible Clubs tonight. Hope you can come and join us. Pretty soon I hope to add some thoughts from my time with the Lord and just some reflections on Scripture that I am reading. Hopefully, what I am learning from the Lord will be something that may encourage you. Shadow…
