Finish the Job!

If you are around me much at all, you know I like to tinker (tear up is probably more accurate) with my vehicles. Last week I had another opportunity. The temperature gauge on “The Beast” began to go haywire indicating the engine was running hot. “The Beast” is what my girls call my 200,000 mile,1999…

Put Some Air In It

My toolbox – In my toolbox I have this nice little tire plugging kit. It is one of the most important tools I have. In the kit is a tool that pulls the nail out of the tire. It has a tool to clean the edges. And it has a tool to insert the new…

The First Step

Let me introduce you to a future Figure Skating Gold Medalist, Brooklyn Smith. This precious, adorable, and sweet three year old little girl braved the ice for the first time on Saturday.

Flowers for Today

Jana never has been much of a flower girl. I have never been much of a flower guy. I get her the obligatory rose for Valentine’s day, and sometimes I surprise her for her birthday. Our relationship is definitely not hinged to flowers. I know you fellows have got to be jealous by now. We…

That’s Not Fair!

[quote name=”Ephesians 2:4-5″]But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions– it is by grace you have been saved.[/quote] If you have an older brother or sister then these words probably came out of your mouth at one point oranother.

Twenty Seven Dollars

[quote name=”Luke 12:34″]For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also[/quote] I almost teared up last Sunday night in Adventure Club. We have such a loving, caring, group of three year olds to second graders. They love the Lord and it shows in everything they do. But last Sunday night was over the top. A…
