God and Suffering 3

When we go through suffering in life we tend to like to find someone to blame it on – a friend, a spouse, an enemy, or often times we like to default to God. He’s sort of easy to pin it on when all other options are exhausted. We wonder where He is. Why isn’t ...

5 Years Ago

5 years ago tomorrow, July 24, I ended up in the ER during a severe manic episode I experienced while on our family vacation to Ocean City, MD. For more details on the episode, you can read the full entry over at our other blog – The Marriage Fight . Here’s an excerpt from that post: ...

LeBron’s Last Game? 2

LeBron's Last Game?
Earlier this summer my mom and I got to cross of a bucket list item (well for me anyway). We attended game 4 of the 2018 NBA finals in Cleveland! Here’s a shot of us while we waited for tipoff. We were decked out in our “free” shirts in order to Black out the Q. ...

Infinity War Thoughts

Infinity War Thoughts
Warning: Avengers – Infinity War spoilers below.   I’ll start out saying I was a big Infinity War fan. Unlike Danielle’s complaint that they packed so many heroes into one film, I thought they did a good job of weaving everything together. Perhaps the story with Vision and Wanda (AKA Scarlet Witch) was a little ...

Rather than tell the whole story, I’ll just provide an image of the exchange. The topic of abortion really gets my blood boiling, ...

Stem Cell Transplant 1

As most (I assume) of you readers know, my dad was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in September of 2017. It’s been quite the process since then and an emotional rollercoaster for sure. We have been overwhelmed by the love and support of so many people, which has been such a comfort and support during this ...

The Macbook Lives!

Late last year my (better yet let’s say Danielle’s) Macbook Pro bit the dust with some weird display issues. We figured it was a goner, and Danielle needs a machine for her photography business, so she ended up with a shiny new Macbook Pro (it’s fancy). I didn’t put much thought into it until my ...

Road Trippin’ to Cleveland 1

Road Trippin' to Cleveland
Back in January of this year my cousin (in law) Matt and I made a road trip out to Cleveland to catch the Cavs-Spurs ABC primetime game. The trip out was easy enough, and we absolutely love to chat with topics ranging from the GOP and Democratic election cycle to sports to how to solve ...

Be Who You Were Created to Be 1

Psalm 139:13-14 says: For you created my inmost being;     you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made… At our recent trip to the Outcry Tour, Brian Houston, the lead pastor of Hillsong Church, was the main speaker. You can read my Outcry post for details on his ...
