2011 (1903)

Meredith and I headed out from Fort Collins, Colorado towards Laramie, Wyoming before detouring straight east across Highway 80 to Sidney, Nebraska. On our return back to Fort Collins we detoured through northeast Colorado through the aptly named Pawnee National Grassland. Talk about some wide open spaces. The grassland is roughly 30 x 60 square miles or nearly 200,000 acres that are virtually uninhabited by mankind.

There is hiking and camping in the park although we didn’t have time to stop on this short day trip. The area doesn’t look too different than parts of North Texas where we live with buffalo grass and blue stem being the main grasses growing on the prairie.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always... Continue Reading →

The Question of Free Will

Sadly when I think of theology and philosophy I first think of the famous Monty Python skit “The Philosophers' Football Match” instead of anything I learned during 36 hours of theology and philosophy courses at The University of St. Thomas. The Philosophers' Football Match was a Monty Python sketch depicting a football match in the... Continue Reading →

Becoming One with God

What does it mean to be “One with God”? Is it an emotionally charged experience? Are you like a Pentecostal speaking in tongues, or deep in a meditative state like the Dalai Lama? Is it even possible, or is it just reserved for a chosen few? I am going through a study that talks about... Continue Reading →

It’s not my dream.

Our son is a competitive ultra-endurance runner who is currently living in Utah chasing his dream of becoming a professional athlete. His road to getting there has been anything but conventional and I have questioned his judgement and decisions he has made over the past three years. He was a three time Texas "All State"...
