Welcome to my journal. It will primarily be used to record my impressions of various things that I read throughout the year. Feel free to read any of the entries that you'd like. If you'd like to add me as a friend make a comment and I will likely add you as well.
I am a Christian and seek to live a life pleasing to God. I've been married to my wonderful wife for 32 years and we have 2 daughters. The younger is a senior at U of M-Dearborn. The older is married, teaches second grade in the area, and has given us a beautiful granddaughter!! :)
My life verses, found in Philippians 3:13-14, are, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to read the entire Bible in the coming year, come and join us at lightuntomyfeet.
If you would like to listen to the latest sermon series at the church I attend they can be heard here.
One of my favorite pastimes is reading. Along with reading the Bible and other books on Biblical topics, I read a wide assortment of books of various genres including, but not limited to, selected non-fiction, classics, historical fiction, cloak and dagger novels, mysteries, etc.
