What is the length of a day? Some days pound on me, relentless, some days never let me go. http://bible.oremus.org/?passage=Deuteronomy+30 The length of days–heaven and earth are called to witness–will count. When we choose life our time counts even moreso. Before I had children I would strive to be on time for everything. My parents … Continue reading
In my life, I am too busy…
I have always been a Martha, I don’t even want to be Mary.

For example last Friday we were late to school because every single thing I asked him to do he said he would and then didn’t. Making me repeat myself over and over again. Last week I was … Continue reading
Maybe this is really obvious to other people, but apparently its not really helpful to go to a big stewardship conference when you are about $100,000 in debt. (at least it not if your me….) There I’ve gone and said it. My family and I are over $100,000 in debt, and the end seems nowhere … Continue reading

Was a cultural shift today? If you look at communities sharing businesses, etc. this generation is into open source Examples include … Continue reading
Alright, after reading a disturbing post about the Board of Pensions (disturbing because not 6months ago the board of pensions came to Albany, NY and personally guaranteed us our pensions were fine) I am beginning to understand the rising healthcare cost for pastors with children (from %35 to %65).
