Lonely At Christmas

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

It began as a desperate act of self-preservation. In December of 2007 I’d been living in Lubbock for several months after 14 years in the Phoenix valley. I was a not by choice divorced single Dad living in a place I never wanted to live. Somewhere in the middle of the month I realized that […]

When Your Burden Becomes An Idol – A Confession

Monday, July 26th, 2010

The following is a confession. I’ve apologized and asked forgiveness of the offended Party. Now it’s time for that “confess your sin to one another” part of the process. In a sentence…I have allowed my burden to become an idol. For my readers who don’t know me, four years ago my spouse chose to walk […]

Ozona, maybe about 3,000 people, is the only town in Crockett County, a county that’s the same size as Delaware.   Partly because of his line of work, […]

“I’m Sorry”

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Last Wednesday evening I took the girls to Golfland to play mini-golf. When you play putt-putt with twin 6-year olds, you don’t bother playing yourself. You just help them try to stay focused on the hole in front of them and keep them from trying to climb the Windmill or wade in the water hazard. […]
