desert place 3

Oh Lord, when will You come?

When will you answer me?

And when You come,

what will You find in my heart?

For this heart has been to me – an enemy…

Oh Lord, unite my heart to fear Your name!

Create in me a clean heart O God

And renew a steadfast spirit within;

for Your glory and Your honor

for Your glory O Lord 

O Lord, how did I come

To this desert place?

How did my eyes not see

The path that brought me here?

How I long now for your word; Your Spirit’s voice to me

Only speak and these dry bones will live again!

Create in me a clean heart O God

And renew a steadfast spirit within

For Your glory and Your honor

For Your glory O Lord

My Little Angels

Here are my little angels. They have brought so much joy and happiness into our family. Yes, there are days I wish it was just me and my wife, but I wouldn’t trade these two in for anything. They will always have a special place in my heart, and I thank God for them everyday. Image



I have never been one for many words. It has been my general philosophy to be thought a fool than to open my mouth and remove all doubt. However, I do have my moments. One of the few shows my wife and I like to watch is The Big Bang Theory, and we just love Sheldon. Conversing with my wife one night, the stars aligned and I had perfect comedic timing, I was able  to slip into the conversation “Bazinga” and she just about peed her pants from laughing so much. Its a moment that I will never forget. The ability to share these little moments with your spouse can go a long way for a solid marriage.

This story reminds me of a Bible verse from Proverbs.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Proverbs 17:22

A cheerful heart will go a long way in relationships, so make sure you are sharing laughs with each other.
