2010-2011

Happy New Year!  As I write this I’ve alreayd run a 5k (with a horrible time, but I did it), had a leisure brunch with 2 good friends, and am now watching the Gators, who seem to have forgotten how to play football, at least for the first quarter. As I look back on 2010, […]

Book Review: Radical / David Platt

There have been two similar books published in the recent past that were pretty much about the same thing: this one is better.  In my opinion, which really doesn’t matter, I know.  I loved Platt’s book: all except the familiarity of the stories he told through out the book.  I’ve heard him preach on several […]

Much & Link Love (Nov 1) and November!

Well, thought I might tie these two posts together since November 1 falls on a Monday. 1. Great weekend: the ocean, 31 miles, mahi mahi tacos, and a Gator win! 2. Getting organized and down-sizing. 3. Love seeing old friends: they are rare! 4. Love talking about what God is doing in my life. 5. […]
