An Update on Jonathan

Today we moved into a room where Jonathan can stay with us. Praise God! Though we’re not home yet, it’s a huge improvement. The room is a little larger than our closet, but with all three of us in there at the same time, it’s just right. Jonathan gets to come out of the NICU … Continue reading

Grandma’s Waffles – Tasty Kitchen

This morning we made waffles from a recipe we found on the internet. It sounded like a really fluffy, wonderful recipe. We’ve cleared out our schedules, hoping to be busy in the Hospital with a newborn son, which has left us with next to nothing to do. Enter Googling Waffle Recipes. The best part about … Continue reading

The Hope of Righteousness

5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. via Passage: galatians 5 5-6 ESV Bible Online. We eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. The HOPE of righteousness. That’s not a … Continue reading

It’s the little things

We love our house. I moved in during the Spring of 2005. We got married and Stephanie moved up that October. Since then, it’s been our home. It’s decorated the way we like it. We have enjoyed having friends over and throwing parties. Stephanie and I both have a passion for hospitality. We love making … Continue reading

When is God enough?

Last January I found out that a good friend of mine had a brain tumor. It was a very difficult time. To make matters worse, he found out as he stepped off the plane to take care of his father, who recently learned that he had cancer. Sometimes things are tough. And you never know … Continue reading

A Great Commission Resurgence

I usually don’t blog about church life things. However, today I’ve been attending the Southern Baptist Convention held in Louisville, KY. There are benefits and costs to being a Southern Baptist. The SBC is sometimes related to the awkward family member that shows up at family reunions. They’re family and you love them, but sometimes … Continue reading

Home screen

Sometimes, with new technology comes the ability to get more things done, more quickly. The only danger is that you become so obsessed with the speed of things that you don’t ever stop and unplug. It’s traffic to see a couple at a nice restaurant sitting silently as one or both of them use their … Continue reading

Derby means…

It’s Derby weekend. That means it’s safe to start putting plants in the ground and we can finish off our garden! I’m excited!

Morning Routine

Nothing beats a good morning routine to help you get started. Mine starts here: I purchased an ESV Study Bible for the free online version that comes with every print version. I have found that this online version comes in very handy. I did not think, however, that I would ever use the print version. It’s huge. … Continue reading

The Sombrero

Last night we went to El Tarasco, a great mexican place, for Jeremy’s birthday. It was a surprise to him, but since he doesn’t like surprises, his fiance Lauren told him about it before they got in the car. Jeremy isn’t a fan of surprises or being put on the spot. So when he saw … Continue reading


Stephanie made me some sweet wool socks. She’s taken up knitting and crochet. These socks are awesome and keep my feet nice and warm when it’s freezing outside. I’m a lucky man.

Orange juice

On a recent trip to visit Graham and Becky in Orlando, we made some fresh squeezed orange juice. I thought I would share a picture for you to be jealous of.

Creature Comforts

It’s nice when a company does something above and beyond what they need to do for their customers. I have a 3 hour layover in Birmingham today. Southwest has started providing a few leather chairs with plugs and powered USB ports for customers to wait comfortably and recharge their phones, laptops and iPods. I’m a … Continue reading

Do What You Love To Do

I’ve learned recently that I have to spend time wisely. Part of this is learning what I am good at, what I can do, and what I can’t do. There are certain things that would be fun to do but would be a waste of my time because I am not tallented or gifted in … Continue reading

Grillin & Chillin

Tonight, I grilled some tuna steaks and sea scallops for dinner. It wasn’t a feat to grill amazing seafood, though that is awesome. It was special because it was 17 degrees outside when I was grilling. Yes, it was cold. No, I did not loose anything to frostbite. Thanks for asking. I’ve included some pictures … Continue reading

Found dog

Sunday afternoon we took Lucy for a walk and found a dog running around in our yard by the time we got back. This cute little pooch had a hankercheif on but didn’t had any tags. We grabbed another leash from inside and took this dog for a walk to find it’s owners. Though the … Continue reading

Social Media

My friend, Aaron Marshall, just did a presentation at Southern Seminary about the use of social media. Of course, it was tailored to ministry because it was at Seminary, but the idea definitely spans across all walks of life.  The biggest thing I took from what he said is it is not about self-promoting, but … Continue reading

Google Reader

Google Reader is an amazing tool that keeps me up to date and informed. I use to follow a bunch of different news sources, development resources, and of course, my closest friends’ blogs. One of my favorite things about it is the ability to check it out on my computer, iphone, or anywhere else in … Continue reading
