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…

Nurse, bodyguard, cheerleader and taxi driver

Today is February 18th, which just happens to be my sisters birthday. Although I haven’t likely acknowledged it, she was and has been a very important person in my life. She has never asked for any credit or acknowledgement for what she has done for me and maybe she doesn’t even realize how much of a contribution she’s made to…

Song of the Week #7 – He Saw it All

I’m going to stick with my statement that country music won’t likely be found on this blog, so let me make this clear – This is Southern Gospel, NOT Country music.  🙂 I went to a Gaither Homecoming Concert in Toronto with Joy at the Air Canada Centre in 2005 or 2006. It was the second Gaither Concert I had…

Song of the Week #6 – It is Well

No, this isn’t “It is Well with My Soul” although it has a similar title. It does use part of the chorus of the “original” It is Well with My Soul, but otherwise, it’s different. I love this song! We started singing it in church about a year ago or something like that. I became acquainted with the song when…

The Farm Chronicles – Part 1

Growing up on a farm was pretty interesting. When I look back on it now, the things that excited me back then seem pretty strange to this “city boy” now. Back in the pre-Internet days, I loved when the Western Ontario Farm newspaper would show up in the mail as well as the other tractor and farm equipment papers. As…

Song of the Week #5 – Power of Love

Generally speaking, I don’t enjoy watching or reading anything fantasy or sci-fi related. Maybe I just don’t have a great imagination for storylines like that? I sit through one of those movies and think “That can’t happen” or “That’s not real” and it bugs me. Confession time: I have never watched Star Wars (any of them,) Lord of the Rings,…

22?

It’s been about 3 weeks since I started my new exercise (DDPY) and healthy eating routine. Yesterday morning I jumped on the scale and saw 2 numbers side by side, that I haven’t seen in a while. 22.. As you may recall, I started at 242 lbs and as of yesterday morning, I’m now at 229 lbs. I’ve been so accustomed…
