Wedding Day

It was Jan. 18, 1995 when I first met her. My wife and I were sitting in the hospital waiting room when my son, Jason, brought her out to meet us. Jessica had just given birth to her first child.

Due to inexperience and a lack of good planning, I was on a motorcycle a few years ago heading north on an interstate highway during a terrible storm that spawned tornadoes. Not the best place in the world to be and not the road trip experience that I had envisioned.

Last Sunday the undefeated Carolina Panthers, 14-0, traveled to Atlanta to play the Falcons who, after a 5-0 start, were at 7-7 on the season. Just two weeks earlier, Atlanta had been humiliated by a 38-0 score at the hands of Carolina.

I was a young pastor when a prominent parishioner said that I needed to be more animated in my preaching. He then referenced several television ministers who used drama to their advantage.

“They are not boring,” he said. “They are alive!”

A Thanksgiving snapshot

On Thanksgiving Day, my wife and I had 14 people at our house, including us. Two of my three sons, a granddaughter and her fiance, my middle son’s fiance, four younger granddaughters, and three older grandsons were on hand to eat and celebrate the holiday.
