How you see the world is based on your values and the choices you make each day. If fear and hate fills your heart you will have a difficult time accepting your neighbor as your own. If fear cripples you into inaction and anxiety you will be unable to find true happiness and fulfillment. You... Continue Reading →
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.
The day was a mixture of sun and clouds and while we didn’t get rained on you could see massive clouds bringing down rain in the distance. Another great day exploring a place off the beaten…

Does forgiveness hold the key? I have read that the unforgiving mind is full of fear and... Continue Reading →
“I am as God created me”. Surely you have heard a statement similar to that one. Or perhaps uttered it yourself. But do you truly believe it? Do you believe that you are who you are and where you are for a reason? Do you believe there is a divine plan in play or is... Continue Reading →
Forgiveness. Why do I struggle so much with this basic concept? God calls us to forgive others and the Bible talks about this time after time. It is, quite simply, one of the most important concepts needing to be mastered if you plan to move forward into happiness and fulfillment. But yet, I continue to... Continue Reading →
I don't have much to say this morning other than I have had enough of rain and cold weather. We certainly needed the rain as it has been very dry but 7 days straight with nearly 10 inches? That's a bit much. So I decided to post some pictures from last Spring on our front... Continue Reading →
We usually write about hiking and the great outdoors but I ran across these photos from a few years ago when we raced the GTI in a local Sportscar Club of America event at the Texas Motor Speedway and thought I needed to post them. We put some helmets on, slapped our number on the... Continue Reading →
