Almost Is Not An Option…

As I've shared previously, high school wasn't my favorite place growing up. Up until that point most of us enjoyed the same things living in Northern N.J.   When they wanted to start staying out later, I did it. I adopted everyone's music and went where they wanted to go. When they wanted to join [...]

$1 and a Dream

When you're 14 years old, you just do some things that if you thought reasonably about, you'd probably not do it.  I was remembering an event about 44 years ago today, my friend Tim Snover and I decided to rides our bikes to his grandmother's farm to go wild rainbow trout fishing. It was cold [...]

He reminded us that Jesus did finish his goal and it's because of this, we have the opportunity to finish ours as well, [...]

Being Thankful

Today is our once-a-year Thanksgiving church service where all the churches from Southern Florida join together for a family reunion to worship God. It reminds me of a time growing up when all my extended families in the NY-NJ area would do the same, except God wasn't much a part of it. I am grateful [...]

Bonded Part 4

This BONDED series has given me the opportunity to write about some experiences regarding relationships over my life. I've shared over the last several weeks about best friends I've had previously and the painful ways those friendships ended. I had another best friend about 20 years ago named Angelo Cruz. We bonded as soon as [...]

A Bonded Covenant

Even though the males are with me at the annual Men's Retreat camping trip at Lake Placid and the women are having their own service in Davie, I'll still write a story this week and share about this experience.  For the first 30 years of my life, I camped twice. Once was as a boy [...]
