A Message from the Lord?

a message from the lord

I took the kids to Steve’s softball game last night. It was the playoffs, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have gone. I’m not that supportive of a wife. Not with three kids, one pounding on the bleachers, one trying to feed a woman’s newborn and the third complaining about the embarrassment caused by the one trying to […]

The 10 Best TV Shows to Watch on Netflix

10 best tv shows on netflix

After the kids are tucked in, and Steve too, I like to lay in bed, turn the iPad on its side to match my line of vision and watch an hour or four of Netflix. I used to be a reader. I read a lot. Since I started watching Netflix about two years ago, I’ve […]

So here’s how my “Sabbath” went.

cut back on hurry worry and stress

“Hurry” and I are really good friends. Sometimes I picture us walking down the street like old pals. Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated! and then we take off running down the sidewalk arm-in-arm. Running, because “Hurry” doesn’t walk, “Hurry” runs. And that’s basically how I live my life. So I decided that I was going to […]

I’m Getting Holy and Taking a Sabbath on Wednesday

getting holy taking a sabbath

I went to church yesterday. There was this guest pastor/speaker guy. He was talking about “hurry.” Most Sundays you’ll find me nodding off or catch me contemplating whether I’ll get the bacon cheeseburger or hot dog with everything at Portillo’s for lunch, but this week was different. “Hurry” is my #BFF, so I tuned in closely. According to […]
