That You Would Expand My Territory

Several times this week, my phone has offered me an “Alert” that someone I’m following on Twitter, is now following someone else. Is this really “breaking news?” I participate in a few social networks. At heart, I’m a content producer (going back to my days in broadcasting) and I have a very active mind, so…

When I was Young

Three times this week, it was said to me something like, “You’re getting old.” Was I alarmed? Yes. Especially, since one of those comments came from a hairstylist that I was using for the first time. “And, here’s your tip!” (I didn’t cut her short.) Was I offended? No. There is an aging process that…

As Unto

Recently, my oldest son has been very nice… This isn’t alarming at all. He’s normally a very sweet kid, but this kind of nice was something extra. He was offering to do extra jobs for me, like getting all the beverages for our meal and cutting me off to help his younger siblings. It didn’t…

There Ought To Be a Law

I track with local news in multiple cities and am often looking at the headlines.What I’ve noticed about the comments that follow tragic events is a call for more or tighter laws or stiffer penalties. There is a certain wisdom that goes along with this, and the comments emerge from people of different political opinions…

Up Off the Mat

One of the things that I appreciate about Restoration is the diversity. Round Rock is, generally speaking, pretty diverse anyway, but what I mean is that we seem to connect with a pretty wide demographic. We have many different cultural and ethnic expressions in our church as well as a wide age range. And the…

Need Each Other

I’ve been off on a family vacation for the last two weeks & am so thankful to be refreshed for the new year at Restoration. I say refreshed but rested isn’t usually a part of our family vacations. Just about every break we get in the year, we make the trek up to Michigan to…

That Kid

I can’t help it. Every year at this time, I remember that I was once That Kid. That Kid whose mom worked a lot but it was never enough. That Kid who saw all the fun of Christmas being advertised on TV but knowing that mine wouldn’t look like that. That Kid who thought he…
