Intentionally God's 6


I didn’t want hominy again.  In fact I felt like if I had to eat one more bite I would vomit. At nine, I did not realize the reasons behind the third day of having to eat the yellow, round kernels of grit I was trying to focus on chewing and swallowing. I was just tired of it.  I wanted […]

Peace and Love kinda day

Kobe and I took Mo coffee at work and got an impromptu tour of the area he was training in. Kobe loved getting to see his dad in action. On the way back to the hotel we picked up donuts from Peace, Love and Lots of Donuts. The owner Isabelle was a delight to talk to, we spent 20 minutes […]

We stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott because they are pet friendly. We spent most of our trip being lazy in the hotel. It was my favorite.  Days of rest and togetherness, it’s all I needed.

Wisdoms Removed

My Jordan is the most logical, serious guy in the tribe so whenever we can catch him in moments of silliness, it gives the rest of us great pleasure. It doesn’t happen often but when he had to get his wisdom teeth removed we knew we had prime opportunity to catch him in some funny moments. I was very impressed […]

We Won’t Forget

Natalie’s choir took part in a memorial ceremony on 9/11. We will not forget. Prayers for our countries continued healing. For the families who lost loved ones. For the safety and protection of our country. For the men and women serving to protect. For love and peace to reign. In Jesus name. God bless America.
