Timeless Gift of Time

I have several friends who have mentioned over the years that they never know what to buy their dad for birthdays, Father’s Day, or Christmas.

Child of God

I recently had the pleasure of going on a trip to Grand Cayman. What made it even more special was that I got to fly on a private jet. It was my first experience, and it was pretty wonderful. I’m not one who likes to do things in order to feel better than everyone else, […]

What Happens When We Ignore the Pain

I received such a sad message this week that one of my son’s friends died at his workplace. I couldn’t believe it – he was only 34 years young. As of today, the cause isn’t known. Tonight was the viewing, and as soon as I saw his mom we embraced. I sensed that she was […]
