That Works

I have the hardest time writing for a blog. I think, “Who in the world is going to read this?” Then, every now and then, I get a comment from someone who has actually read it and was encouraged, or challenged. That works.

I am still working through writing Chemistry 101. Man is that a challenge, but I nearly can’t wait to watch it myself! I think it has great potential to introduce a whole new discipline to those who otherwise may never even touch it for fear that it is beyond them.

I facilitate a small group on Wednesday nights. We have gone through Tactics in Defending Your Faith which you can find at We’ve gone through The Truth Project by Focus on the Family. Both of these were terrific. Just recently we finished a wonderful series by Andy Stanley called The Best Question Ever. Highly recommended.

We just completed the Eagle Court of Honor for Micah. That means both sons are now Eagle Scouts. My, oh, my was that a lot of work, especially as the family did it through the Boy Scout of America’s Lone Scout program. It is wonderful to have set a goal many years ago and now to see it completed. In fact, all four of us are sitting down tonight and discussing what we would like to see accomplished in the next 10 years and setting goals toward that end. God superintends the affairs of all history, but with no clear vision, the people perish. If you aim for nothing, you hit it every time.

Proverbs 18:22: “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” I have found a good thing. I have obtained favor from the Lord.
