Living Letters

I was attending a Camp Farthest Out (a week away) in July 2002. I decided to go to a writing class that they provided.  We each took a tablet and pen and made our way to a place alone to see what God had for us.  This is the result of my time with the […]

The Value of a Team

  Over the summer we had a softball tournament to benefit Loving and Caring.  It was a great day – very hot- but good fellowship for a great cause and great food.   As I watched the teams it was obvious that some of them knew each other well, and some were just getting together from […]

There are flowers that need to be planted, schools are out, vacations are starting, and we are having longer days.   It is a wonderful time of year when families gather together, […]

Helpers

I am excited to be back posting my blogs.  I have been on a medical sabbatical and am now returning to work part time.  As I am writing this I am sitting in a Physical Therapy Office getting some heat on my back and leg.  I do want to thank all of you who have […]
