I’m a small-town guy.  I grew up in one and, except for three years out of my life, I have lived in small towns (and much prefer them!).  It should not be surprising, then, that skyscrapers are fascinating and impressive to me. I have, on a few occasions, stood at...

I am not much of a traveler.  Whenever I’m asked, “If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?”, my answer is always, “Home” (much to my wife’s dismay).  Honestly, I can’t understand the pull to discover new places that people often express in their attempts to...

Who could have guessed that I would have two cars with identical, catastrophic failures within six months of each other?  In all my years of maintaining my own vehicles (that would be every one of my years since age 16), this is a first!  My initial reaction (sad, but true)...

There is always somewhere else to be, and a time we’re supposed to be there.  That may be one of the biggest understatements of the day, right?  Work calls, as does home projects, ballet lessons, workouts, meals, meetings, car repairs, church, and a nearly endless list of other things.  We...

I really can’t help it!  The music of the season is inextricably bonded to my celebration of the Christ Child!  There is warmth, truth, and great joy for me in the sounds of Christmas.  As I have grown more mature (not old!) though, the list of favorites has become more...

One of my favorite Christmas movies is the original “Miracle on 34th Street (black and white, of course).  Part of the reason is a nostalgia for the “the good old days” of my childhood, and part of it centers around the concept of belief and faith.  Though in the movie,...

You know The Season is in full swing when they start advertising “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.  In case you don’t know (and don’t own it already), it will air on ABC in only two days (Thursday at 8 pm)!  It is gratifying to know that this simple telling of the...

The evidence of the goodness of God so often shows up in my life as the replacement of my ideas with His.  Take this morning for instance.  I was prepared to come into work, sit down at my desk and pen (okay, type) a specifically themed Tuesday Thoughts.  But as...
