“That ‘no’ you’re getting from God may be to block you from taking the worst detour of your life. Don’t force a ‘yes’. He has a better ‘yes’ ahead.” – Beth Moore
“You will hear your Teacher’s voice behind you. You will hear it whether you turn to the right or the left. It will say, ‘Here is the path I want you to take. So walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21 (NIRV)
“In Christ, you are enormously gifted. You have an unseen enemy who is after that gift.” -Beth Moore
“Protect that good thing entrusted to you through the Holy Spirit who lives in you.” 2 Timothy 1:14
I went after a dream using one of the gifts I have…
But the overall gift from the day was the experience.
Happy…grateful…thankful. More tomorrow.
Traveling to NW Arkansas for a memorial service, and it has been thirteen years since Carmen was here.
This was a wonderful moment in our travels yesterday. Twelve hours in a car, to attend a service for essentially my little brother has been difficult to say the least.
He would be turning 50 the 24th of this month. Far to young to be gone. Tony was fun, engaging, strong minded, mean, and loving. I will miss him something fierce.
We were out of touch for about fifteen years, but have been talking every couple of weeks recently.
Life is short. I am grateful I knew him and that he was a part of my life.
See you on the other side cowboy. I love you.

On this day… 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work the next morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today, tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.
Continuing the thoughts from yesterday, and journeys.
New version coming soon…growing every day.
Nothing to add…resting in His peace.
Saw this and it spoke to me this morning. Hopefully it speaks to you as well.
