Growing Up

Last night was the Shelby County Band Showcase at Helena High School. It’s amazing how quickly life changes. Years ago, it was my mom and dad slaving away in the concession stand and hauling equipment all over the stadium. Now, I’m the dad. The running joke all night long was, “you’re doing such a good…

Blank Canvas

Each Tuesday, I stare at a blank column. I could choose to fill this space with meaningless words or meaningful words to begin painting a beautiful masterpiece. I am so thankful that God chose meaningful over meaningless with each one of us. We just have to do one of two things. Embrace joy, love and…

Words of Wisdom

20My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the…

Blessed With A Gift

As the craziness of summer winds down for me, teachers across the nation and especially our beloved teachers in Birmingham are walking into their classrooms this week to do what they do best…bless our children with the gift of teaching.

This is the week of the Golden Age Banquet.

Mary Poppins was a big box office hit years ago, and there is no doubt…

Today

Over Spring Break, my family and I got to spend one day at the beach. Well, a few hours is more realistic. We prepared well since we only had a very short time. Sandcastle tools, swimsuits, towels, sunscreen, hats, and beach chairs. It was a very overcast day so I quickly put sunscreen on my…

No Complaining

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. 14 Do everything without…

Team

Last week brought a memory that I will not forget. Richard Fitts vs. Luke Whitaker. Helena Huskies vs. Vestavia Rebels. Friend vs. Friend. Leader vs. Leader in a baseball game where both have mega talents and will go on to play college baseball and much, much more. When I arrived at the stadium, it was…

They are looking forward to meeting as many as are able to come.…
