Rest in Peace, Grandma Go Blue

On Friday, our family friend, Barbara “Barb” Jennings went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was 74. She was a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, and loved her Michigan Wolverines. She was affectionately called Grandma Go Blue by her grandkids Zeke, Ethne, and Eydie Waters. She was an amazing woman.

Phase 1 Ends, Phase 2 Begins

12 weeks ago, I began a journey that has been a long-time coming. For all of my life, I have been overweight. I have been told time and again by doctors that I needed to lose weight. Yet, I ignored them because I didn’t want to give up the food that I enjoyed eating.

After a number of life circumstances, not the least of which was a diabetes diagnosis a year ago, I decided it was time to get serious about losing weight. It began at work.

Christmas Eve 2014

Picture these Christmas images:

  • Multitudes of people frantically scrambling around in search of last minutes gifts; often times spending more money than they can really afford to spend.

  • A house decked out in lights with a yard loaded to the hilt with decorations which illuminate the entire block, a la the Clark Griswold home in Christmas Vacation.

  • Wild office parties or family get-togethers with varieties of food and beverages to go along with loads of fun and laughter.

God Singing to Me

I was attending a conference at my church today on the Father’s love (among other things) with speaker Leif Hetland. As we worshipped this morning before Leif spoke, we sang the song Furious by Jeremy Riddle. I sensed God saying, “I am singing this to you (and everyone else here).”

So, here are song lyrics with the pronouns changed as God was singing this to me.

Asking “Why”

For the last couple of months, I’ve been mad at God.

There. I said it and didn’t get struck dead. (Is that thunder I just heard? 😉 )

WARNING!!! I’m Getting On My Soapbox to Rant

WARNING!!! I am getting on my soapbox!!! Prepare yourself!!! There’s a rant coming!!! You have been warned. If you are easily offended, you might not want to read further.

I was browsing my Facebook feed today and I came across an article posted by a friend of mine. The article talked about an Oklahoma Tea Party candidate calling for homosexuals to be stoned to death. (I won’t dignify it with a link to the actual article. You can Google it if you’re really interested.)

Derek Jeter Retires

Let me start by saying that I despise the New York Yankees. On principle, I loathe teams that try to buy (or succeed at buying) championships.

That said, Derek Jeter is one of the few recent Yankees whom I respect, primarily for the way he approached the game of baseball and the fact that he has played his ENTIRE career with one team. I’m kinda “old school” like that.

Happy 50th Anniversary Doctor Who!!!

50 years ago today (November 23, 1963), a cultural phenomenon debuted. While Americans were grieving the loss of one of America’s most beloved Presidents, our neighbors across The Pond in Britain were seeing for the first time, what would become one of the greatest science fiction television series of all-time: Doctor Who.

gods at war – Chapter 6 – the god of sex

For the last week, I’ve been going through Kyle Idleman’s book gods at war and doing a chapter-by-chapter synopsis / review. Today, I’m looking at chapter 6 – the god of sex.

I really like how Idleman starts out the chapter:

Sex is good.
