Mission Opportunties

Greetings from our friendly neighbors up north, and no,  I am not talking about south Georgia. I am talking about Canada. I recently returned from Toronto Canada, the fourth largest city in North America.  It is a beautiful city with a great need for the life-changing gospel.

How can I best serve my family

Recently, I talked about some disciplines that would help us serve ourselves as we get closer in our relationship with God. I want to continue on that thought in this post. As we develop the disciplines of prayer and study, and as we learn how to completely lean on and trust God. We can leverage these learned disciplines to serve our family.

A tale of two anthems

Recently while visiting Toronto, I had the wonderful privilege to attend a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game. Toronto is a wonderful city with a beautiful ballpark that I had seen on television many times before.  Since I was in the city, I wanted to take the opportunity to visit and experience this beautiful park. My love for Major League Baseball draws me to these sports sanctuaries and I can assure you this was an occurrence that I will not soon forget.

Can you see it

By nature, I am an outcome guy. The outcome is the desired effect, it is where you want to end up. It is easy for me to dream about the outcome. I always seem to look ahead and romanticize the future. The nuts and bolts of the systems and process sometimes overwhelm me. You see, I want to see and experience the systems and processes that I am working on…operational and fully functional.

Just live

Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life. 19 And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God. 20 God keeps such people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past. Ecclesiastes 5:18-20

Clowns to the left of me…jokers to the right…here I am in the middle (all by myself)

Clowns to the left of me…jokers to the right…here I am stuck in the middle with you.

I am sitting here this morning watching multiple news channels and paying careful attention to all of the Presidential Candidates for the 2016 election. This is the morning of the New York State Primary and I must tell you that I am blown away by all that I am hearing and seeing.
