A year ago today…

A year ago today, about this time, I was sitting in a police car filling out a report for my stolen laptop bag from National City.  The thieves got my laptop (actually it belonged to the bank), Alfredo’s GPS (still sorry about that Alfredo), my daily calendar and most important to me – my daily MacArthur Bible.  To commemorate the one year anniversary, I … Read More A year ago today…

I’m the black sheep…

  I had an interesting discussion with a young man last week. For awhile now, I’ve been working part-time at UPS.

Sadly, this young lady who is … Read More …you have found favor with God. – Luke 1:30

The mystery of God’s providence

I love children.  The Lord has been exceedingly gracious to my wife and I in opening her womb seven times, and in each of those instances, having the great joy of seeing the child delivered with relatively few complications.  By God’s grace, the question has not been, “Will we be able to get pregnant?”, but “What would be a good month to have the … Read More The mystery of God’s providence

What is a mega-family?

A mega family, loosely defined, is family that has one more child in it than you have.  If you have three children, oftentimes the thought is “I can’t imagine having four!”  April and I starting using this phrase when hotels would no longer put our single family in one room.  This started happening when we had our fourth child, Graceann.  Since our precious daughter … Read More What is a mega-family?
