Just touching base with everyone. Sorry about the lack of content lately. Life has been interesting. New job, new challenges, new opportunities. I am just heading through life right now, and the only thing I can clearly see is what is right in front of me. The things in a distance are blurry, but at least I have something close to grab onto.
A lot of things are changing around me – I have friends who are talking about health problems, financial problems, family problems. I have two daughters who are growing up faster than I want (I still want to hold them close to me and wish they were 10 again). I have a wife who continues to move through life and criticizes anything that has to do with religion, but is loving and compassionate in all other areas. I have friend (half/calf – now no/caf) who might be starting out on a new exciting journey. I am getting ready for a bike ride to raise money for cancer – in part because I am a cancer survivor, but more importantly, because I have lost to many family and friends to this awful disease.
I am looking for some clarity, so please pray for me in that area. Also, please look at the list below and pray for them as well.
