Dial in Eternity

I’m a creature of habit.  Generally, I find something I like and I stick with it.  I’ve been using Dove soap for over 20 years.  It’s never failed me… that I’m aware of.  I really had no desire to change.  However, one day, change came.  Due to a series of incidents, I found myself buying […]

Unintentional Uber

Carol was on auto-pilot, I could tell.  The kids were scampering around, getting ready for school.  While lunches were being packed, Carol was sending out reminders, “Do you have your homework?  Those clothes don’t match.  Don’t forget that you have practice after school!”  She’s multitasking like a maniac.  I’m just waiting for the day when […]

Bell in the Tower

On a Thursday morning I found myself in a line of cars at Tim Horton’s in Bowling Green.  Tim Hortons is located directly next to the church where my Pastor’s team meeting was supposed to start at 9:00am.  Then again, in my mind, the line of cars I was behind was supposed to be moving […]

Mystery Gift

I’m convinced.  Cracker Jack snacks are the original McDonalds… and we love them for it.  Even as a child, I knew that they were up to something.  They took what could have been a wholesome snack, covered it in sugar, put a prize in the box and we responded with, “May I have another?”   […]

Just One

There my little girl stood… on the very edge. I was waiting in anticipation for a moment of triumph, iPad in hand, recording and ready to show the world the newfound courage of my little girl. The suspense built as she looked down into the deep expanse of the pool, infinitely deep in her young […]

Birthday Bark

Some signs are impossible to ignore. My birthday is in January. New Year’s resolutions happen in January. I set goals for my health this year that include eating more protein. Then, from an individual online, I found four boxes of a dozen protein bars on super-sale flavored “birthday cake”. The bat symbol is more ambiguous.  Sign received.   I […]

All In

I was in a band before.  I understand that accidents happen.  Straps break and guitars go flying.  Fuses blow and people fall off stage.  The unexpected often adds to the fun!  Even though no one really assumes these things will happen, if a person plays on stage long enough its reasonable to see how something […]

What’s His Angle?

What’s His Angle? On my very first day as pastor at Lindsey Trinity, a couple treated me to a sandwich at Sandi’s Village Cafe, right here in ‘downtown’ Lindsey.  After ordering, I sat down and was having a wonderful conversation.  Then something strange happened immediately after I received my sandwich.  I was entranced.   I […]
