God has holes in the knees of his jeans

I’m of the belief that God has holes in the knees of his jeans. Yes, God has jeans and they are both Holy and holey.   Yesterday I was down on my knees play/picking-up toys if you’re a parent you get it.. you pick up while you play… it’s kind of an “80/20 rule” of sorts. I… Read more »

Lazy Parenting

We’ve all heard it.   “Do as I say, not as I do.”   What does “Do as I say not as I do” imply? It implies.. quite bluntly… you are a lazy parent. Telling your child to “do as you say and not as you do” is a cop-out of all cop outs. You… Read more »

  • temptation

    i was listening to a podcast the other day when something startled me…. the teacher said (and I am paraphrasing) : if we neglect to acknowledge that we are tempted everyday, then we have been deceived. For a moment I thought “I wasn’t tempted today….” then I caught my self. I was caught up in… Read more »

  • intention

    This weekend was a great weekend, it was filled with building memories with Lesley and Roman, we raked leaves, went on a walk, played with Roman’s mega blocks on the living room floor, spent time with family… but this all took intention. I learned something this weekend, and was reminded this morning while I was… Read more »

  • freed by failure

    This hit me like a ton of bricks this week… I pray… but I pray little, I read… but seldom, and seldom do I look to heaven for a “renewed freshness” He who lives without prayer, he who lives with little prayer, he who seldom reads the Word, and he who seldom looks up to… Read more »

  • too busy?

    I am really trying to not complain so much… when people ask: “how are ya doin’?” my response has been: ooohhh pretty good [Eeyore style], busy, going crazy, “swimming” [in stuff to do] – I can always find stuff to complain about, but if I constantly come across as “too busy” then people are going… Read more »

  • “d”….”addy”

    I have re-learned something about God while interacting with Roman. The other day I did a little “experiement” I just let Roman kind of meander around the room, he was playing with his books, toys, and even getting into things that he shouldn’t have been, but I let him do it… then I would run… Read more »

  • One God

    my awesome wife had a great insight the other day, her confession (and I’ve made this mine too) is that God is different sizes and different strengths for each area of her (and my own) walk and life. For me: At home God is big! At church God is pretty big, at work (it is… Read more »
