It’s all about perspective…

Every story has at least 2 sides and it’s always fascinating to look at the 2 (or more) sides to a story or situation and try to understand the “other” view.

Here’s Jonny!

If you’re old like me…(over 40) :), you will remember that famous intro as Johnny Carson was being introduced on “The Tonight Show.” It seems so familiar but the only way I was able to hear this opening was if I was staying up late on a school night.

It was inevitable…

You know…you live your whole life not having to worry about certain things, and then one day you realize that the time has come. You’re faced with a situation you have never come across and you are forced to deal with it, like it or not. It’s part of life and it’s inevitable. For me, this time came earlier this…

Song of the Week #9 – Flawless by Mercy Me

Well…This week was busy. Almost too busy to post my song of the week, but I don’t want to miss so here it is. This song doesn’t require too much explanation. It’s just a song I’ve heard on Christian radio for a few years, but it wasn’t until I saw the video that it really stuck with me. Have a…
