What's in a Name?

Long before Generous entered into our lives, Precious and I had discussed (as many couples do) myriad hypothetical things about our future offspring, including how many kids we hoped to have, their sex/gender, the lofty futures to which they would ascribe, and, most specifically, their names. 468 more words

Dinner and a Drive…

We have a family tradition that started sometime during the past year.  It wasn’t intentional but just sort of happened over time.  Every Sunday evening we take a drive through the countryside.  For about 2 and a half hours, as the sun sets, we take in the glory of God’s beautiful creation.  Our Sunday drives have become another event we look forward to every week.  It’s a perfect end to the weekend and a great start to a new week.  As we drive along the winding country roads, I tend to reflect on the events of the week past.  A stretch of pasture and crops have a way of putting things, good or bad, into perspective.  Seeing the earth, fresh and green, reminds me of the new opportunities that will fill the coming week.  The breeze and leaves wisping away as they fall from the trees gives me a renewed energy and sense of adventure for facing the coming challenges.  I highly recommend ending your week and starting the next with a drive.  … 557 more words
