TBT: Guitar Lessons

I’ve played the guitar for over 30 years now and as music is a big part of our family we hope that our daughter might pick it up some day.  I haven’t forced it, as I want her to come to it naturally.  Today she demanded her ‘tar.’  I don’t know what that is.  My […]

It’s Too Hot to Move

Since the weather changed officially over to summer I have ceased to run anymore.  It is just too oppressively hot to do so.  Or at least that is my excuse.  I wish we had a pool to do laps in, but alas we do not.  And so I am feeling the urge to do something. […]

I have a Bible app on my phone.  In fact, it is one of the first apps I got when I got my first smart phone.  I like that I can take the Bible anywhere and that I can bookmark and highlight scripture.  Then I can go back and read the scripture I have bookmarked […]
