Bonus Blog for Tuesday!

I've been thinking about my next tattoo. Something serious? Something fun? Something meaningful? Maybe...

or this...


Sometimes you just have to giggle...

I love the minds of little kids...

Dad: So C (12 year old brother), it's important to let your character build as you grow up. There are always men out there who don't grow up.

J (9 year old brother): Dad, are you talking about midgets?

Stressed in not just desserts spelled backwards

I mean it is, but that's not all it is. The last couple of weeks it has been a significant pain in my back.

You know the knot that lodges itself right between your shoulder blades? Yes, that knot. Well, it is currently residing in my upper back. My trainer commented that I seem to carry my stress there. Really? Thank you Captain Obvious.

But this knot is a reminder to me. It is a reminder to be grateful for good health, I am blessed. It is a reminder to be in prayer for those in constant, debilitating pain, I am blessed. It is a reminder to relax and rest in God, I am blessed.

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."  (Matthew 6:34 ESV)

I think God has this knot under control. A massage might not hurt either.

Joe's Addiction

Joe's Addiction

I've been spending a little time around this place, dropping by stuff, food, etc. Sometimes when I tell people where it is, their eyes get a little bigger and they ask me lots of questions about safety.

Granted, it's not your Starbucks around the corner, but you can get a great cup of coffee and if you're really lucky, the life story of someone who will totally bless you for the listening. 

Like this one. Ned the Dog.

So if you are around SE 59th just east of I-35, stop for a cup of Joe and say Hi to Jamie for me.
