Leaving a Legacy

L

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines LEGACY as “something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor from the past.” To put it in more basic terms, a legacy is the content of one’s life left for others to carry after one is gone. Our legacy is our proverbial footprints on the sands of life, allowing others to follow our example and continue to propagate what was of value during...

Investment and Return

I

I regularly find myself reflecting on the many men and women that God has brought into my life through the years. As I think back over the proverbial path that God has led me down, I can see the faces of several faithful men and women of God who played meaningful roles in making me who I am and leading me to where I am today. I don’t know if they knew it at the time, but these people made...

The Cure for the Common…

T

We are a grand total of seven days into the new school year, and my lovely wife has already managed to contract the plague from the precious cherubs with whom she works. We are still experiencing temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s, yet somehow the common cold has already begun making the rounds in our area schools. It often seems to me that schools serve to pass germs along with knowledge. It...

Mentorship

M

Every year, on or around my birthday, I would receive a card in the mail from my Grandma Ruth. I would begin looking forward to that card weeks before it was supposed to arrive. I would check the mail every chance I got, hoping to see my grandmother’s handwriting on an awkwardly sized envelope. It was, without question, the highlight of my birthday every year! Before you get too sentimental, my...

Familiarity

F

My wife, Robyn, and I have been married for 17 years. We are living the quintessential “American Dream” with two kids and a dog. It was a dream that seemed very unlikely when we first met on the first day of our freshman year of college. It was NOT love at first sight. As a matter of fact, our first impressions of one another were less than favorable. It was NOT love at first sight. As a matter...

Presence

One of my favorite bands as a teenager was Caedmon’s Call. If I were to play one of their albums right now, I could probably sing every word to every song, but few of them stick with me in the in-between times. There is, however, a line in the song Center Aisle that comes to mind early and often. The song is about a young woman who took her own life. The vocalist hauntingly sings these words…...

Help Wanted

H

The first time I applied for a job was soon after my fifteenth birthday. I had gone through the process of getting the required waiver and was certain of my ability to find gainful employment at one of the very respectable purveyors of fine foods in our area. My first choice was the gallery of culinary artistry known as Subway. I chose this particular establishment for three reasons. First, at...

Home Renovation

H

Home renovation shows are all the rage these days. If I were to be completely honest, I do enjoy some HGTV when I get the chance. We don’t have cable at our house, so when we are on vacation we spend a good amount of time observing the latest trends in home decoration and design. Recently, while I was binge watching copious amounts of this mind-numbing goodness, I began noticing some...

Inspiration in the Obvious

I

There are many things professors attempted to teach me throughout my years in academia that have long been forgotten. Honestly, I’ve probably forgotten about as much as I’ve remembered. There were, however, several nuggets of wisdom offered that were immediately imbedded deep in my mind. One such piece of advice was offered during my junior year at Appalachian Bible College. The professor said...

Over/Under 30

O

Sunday programing on the television was almost unbearable when I was a kid. I remember having very few options of what to watch as the world around me napped. Bowling and golf seemingly dominated the airwaves; but certain channels offered the opportunity to watch old movies. There were seldom few movies that held my attention on those lazy Sunday afternoons, and even fewer that I can remember...
