Just a Thought


Forgiving others doesn’t fix THEM, it fixes US

Just an Update

Well, since I didn’t have any thing officially theological or spiritually edifying ready for this morning, I shall pretend I am on Facebook and spew all the sordid details of my personal life. Well, not really; that’s just stupid. I thought I might just sort of update my friends on things though.

First, I am off work this week. I am off work for SEVEN DAYS!. Seven days, and we have basically no plans at all. She is off, I am off and we are just going to hang around. The only official thing we will do is one day go up North about 2 hours and see an old friend who moved and spend the night. It’s is now seven in the morning and I am in my recliner in my sleep pants. Usually by this time I am up for three hours and out of the door by almost two.

I have been forbidden to take phone calls or look at work stuff on the laptop. She actually gets it, the “it” being my need to just step away from work for a bit. I have been in my current position just over a year and am pretty toasty, having been going full force for basically every day for that year. I’m tired, and need a break. I remember telling the guy I replaced that he was burning out, losing his focus and becoming ineffective. It’s funny how we seem to be unable to listen to our own advice! So, anyway, no work for me this week!

My writing assignment for the Baptist Sunday School Committee went well, I suppose. I mean, I submitted my four weeks of devotionals to the editor. I have been sort of nervous about that, as I don’t really like to be told things I need to do better or fix. Just a few days after I submitted my pay magically showed up in my bank account. That was a funny story in itself. I had been working on the side for a few years to get them to let me write something for them; in fact, that is one of the reasons I started blogging; I just wanted some folks to read. I had almost forgotten the whole thing when the Editor in Chief at the literature and printing ministry asked me if I wanted to come on board as a devotional writer. Of course, I immediately agreed. A few days after that he sent me some direct deposit and tax stuff to fill out, so they could pay me. Go figure, right? I actually had no idea; I just assumed folks did it because they love it. I mean, it’s not a mint or anything, but it was nice to get a little something extra just a few weeks before Christmas.

So, that’s it really. I am going to relax, visit a a few friends, write some stuff and just generally chill. Later in the week, I may fire up the meat smoker. I suspect much coffee is in my future, as one of my goals this week is to play more in depth with the Ninja Coffee Bar I got for Christmas last year. My son gave me a book to read that he had just finished. That’s about it, though. I be chillaxin.


Gumbo- It’s What’s for Dinner

Just a fine Cajun Gumbo for Sunday dinner


Whoever fishes out the most bay leaves washes dishes!


And finally, skillet apple pie and peach cobbler for dessert

Yum!!!! Yum!!!!

Family Night At the Flying Fish 

Some may remember or not that my wife and I love the Flying Fish in Little Rock. It’s pretty special, being the place of our first date. Tonight, though, we made it a family affair.

Taking a picture of people taking selfies of themselves. Weird

Mixing cocktail sauce is an art  form and is actually the one and only thing my Father ever taught me.

Because only a Neanderthal would eat these with store bought cocktail sauce.

And the feast begins!

All gone
