My best friend

I have a special relationship with my best friend, she is more like a sister than a friend. We met in preschool one day by chance. I came in from recess and I found her crying, and it has always been a part of who I am to make sure someone is okay. She told me she missed her mom, and I told her I did too, and I asked her to be my friend and to go play. Over the last two decades, we have shared thousands of laughs, smiles, tears, and hugs. She is my person to go to when things get tough, there is not a single thing I keep from her. Things have not always been easy, or simple, but the love we ha...

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ~~  God, for us...

The week before finals is always a tough one. After a late night of studying, I had an early morning of class. Of course, I snoozed my alarm a couple times too many and ended up frantic and rushing. On my way across campus, I stepped over this water spot. I completely lost all my negative feelings. All I could think about was how meaningful something so simple could be. No, it is not a perfect heart, but nothing is perfect. I am certainly not perfect. and life is not perfect. Though this heart is just a smudgy water spot, it made me remember that life is about joy. It is about enhancing the be...

Life can be a chaotic roller coaster sometimes, and at the end of the day one thing will always be there to comfort us, LOVE. It’s a simple word with so much meaning behind it. Love comes in many forms. There’s love between people, animals, and objects. These are of the most obvious, common forms of love. But, wait…what about the love of Nature? Who else loves to feel the wind in their hair, the sand between their toes at the beach, or the scenery of green trees? Let’s look beyond all that, and focus in on the nature around us. Let’s see if you can find LOVE around you, outside in the beautif...

It was May 1987 when Janet and I met just beyond the steps at St. James and my bride made her face to shine upon me, and I made my face to shine upon hers and we made our vows of years to come to one another in the presence of our friends and were married and became man and wife, and one.   We fully made love for the first time that night in a desert far away and have made love many times and in many ways since and have three beautiful children to show for it each a surprise, each loved, each loving.   And we have taught them and fought with them, watched them and ignored them been perplexed b...
