Running the Race

It happened today. I told God that I fully trusted him and that I surrendered my life to him. Whatever direction you want me to go, I’ll go. Whatever you want me to do, I’ll do. Ummm… well wait God. That is unless you want me to go to a developing country and live there. Or if you want me to [...]

Hello Autumn

Is it time for pumpkin spice lattes yet? Oh yes it is! I love autumn because it brings the tradition of college football, fall home décor, holiday preparations, and great food.

We’ve been together just two weeks now and her first six days were spent in the ICU. So this Friday I [...]

Today I Got A Puppy

Two black cars pulled up side by side at the Buc-ee’s. A deal was going down and cash was being paid but this wasn’t the kind of deal you might be thinking of. It was the kind of deal true love is made of. I got a puppy! I had been scoping out shelters and emailing breeders both. Then [...]
