I just had a discussion with a good friend who said I was “weird”. He’s probably right to a certain extent, but on this particular subject I really hope I’m not that far from the norm. Continue reading
Well… after really thinking it through and praying very hard about it (on my knees type praying) we have come to a decision about the type of construction for our new home and I have never been more excited! Continue reading
When we decided to live this lifestyle, Ranae and I did our research… a lot of it! We had certain goals in mind. One of those goals was to produce as much of our own food as possible. That includes raising rabbits, chickens, goats and one heck of a garden. So far, we have chickens and the garden. We have had rabbits before and are in the process of getting them again once the heat comes down as we enter the fall season. We intend to get goats after the Thanksgiving Holiday due to travel commitments, etc. So for now, we only raise chickens and the garden. Continue reading
This is going to be one of the most personal and detailed posts about me that I will probably every write. I value so many of you as my personal friends and not just someone who reads my random writings. I personally know most of the users registered on this site. I’ve shared a meal with most of you at one time or another and am proud to call you all my friends. Continue reading
I don’t usually link to another person’s blog here on my own, but this time I am going to make an exception.
The blog story I link to, at the bottom of this post, really amazed me. It made me think of some things that I truly had not considered when it came to food and the less fortunate members of our society. Continue reading
With all that has been happening in the news with regards to the ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION from Central America into the United States, I just had to rant a bit. So here goes…
As most of you know, Ranae and I lived in Guatemala and served as full time missionaries. You can view our website for more details at http://www.2forChrist.com.
We still financially support various missionaries there and I am in contact with most of them on a regular basis.
First, I keep hearing countless news stories and everyone, calling the various radio talk shows, is saying “it impossible for any person to walk from Guatemala to the USA.”
Heck, I have had outright arguments and shouting matches with ignorant people who claim it is impossible to even drive from the USA to Guatemala or vice-versa.
Today has been a day full of thought and reflection on my life.
I started the day sore and stiff from my recent minor back injury. But I had to put that aside and got to work on making some sort of a dent in all that has to be done around this place today. Continue reading
Yesterday was Holy Thursday…. the night of the Last Supper as Jesus turned the bread and wine into his very own flesh and thereby instituted the Blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion. Continue reading
CAT NAMES! OH WHAT A DILEMMA! For those who don’t know us very well, let me tell you about our darn cats.
I resisted getting any cats for over a decade, but then Ranae finally beat me down enough and I gave in. Then a friend told us about two little kittens that needed a home, when we lived in Missouri. We adopted them as soon as they were weened. Continue reading
Today is a very special day… it’s my wife Ranae’s birthday. I am blessed beyond words to have shared the last 25% of her life with her. Continue reading
