the day of no Worship.

  I contribute to @lifewithworship and on there a couple weeks ago I tweeted something that still has me thinking – figured I’d post it here too… I’d love to hear and talk with any of you on the subject… @lifewithworship (after Jesus was crucified) Emotions of the disciples: Anger? Guilt? Sadness? Anticipation? Disillusion? Mourning? Probably wasn’t worship… Read more »

Quitr vol 7

  When there is a commitment – you need to focus on that, not everything else that is “good”. God surrounds time… Think about it. He doesn’t move WITH time. On the phone with Lesley: ” Levi, you can’t drive down the stairs” It feels amazing to hold a 15 hour old baby. I will be… Read more »

Racquetball, and all the work

My 2-year-old (Levi) and I had an “adventure” last night. We went to the Rec Center at WSC to play Racquetball. It was awesome. He swung that racket like his little life depended on it. Obviously I didn’t take him to teach him the rules, nor would anyone have said he would win any tournaments… Read more »

the significance of a “like”

How does it make you feel when someone “likes” something you say? How does it feel when NO BODY “likes” what you say? Should it matter if Jesus isn’t in the list of “likes” ? Recently I’ve realized how much of what I do, say or think is driven by what others “like”  – the implications… Read more »

some simple words

Thank you. I love you. I’m proud of you. You are doing a great job. You’ve blessed me. I surrender. I’m sorry. You’re pretty. I respect you. You’re a great friend. I repent. You were right. How can I help? ———- Is there someone you can say one of these to?

To the parents of the world: rock stars aren’t all that bad

  Do you think Rock Stars’ passion could be a good example to moms and dads everywhere? Or how about you and I, the run-of-the-mill human, observing facets of the Rock Star that could focused us to be an exemplary follower of Jesus in every area of our lives….  I follow and read quite a few blogs (to a fault at times) – My… Read more »

searching for daddy

  …the usual morning ritual of pattering feet to Mom and Dad’s bedroom – followed by darting under the covers – followed by more pattering of feet – followed by ‘you lift me up’ [into our bed] – followed by Mom and Dad dodging kicks, elbows, and morning breath……. after a little of all this…. Lesley and Roman headed… Read more »

EAGER expectation

  This morning after coffee with a close friend I was walking to my car and saw the first robin of the year… well… probably not THE first, but it was the first one I saw…. It reminded me of my childhood when my siblings and I would fervently be on the lookout for the ‘first… Read more »
