My Friend Darrell

I was 12 and Darrell was 10. We grew up 2 houses apart and were the best of friends. Our summers were spent outside playing make-believe games, dreaming of girls and just doing boy stuff. Every childhood memory I have includes Darrell, but no memory is more vivid than the summer that everyone carried a […]

A $2.99 Hug

I love doing ministry. Just so you’ll understand, ministry isn’t writing a bulletin article or working on a PowerPoint for Sunday’s sermon. Ministry is being among people, loving people, serving people and building relationships with people. I am very blessed to get to minister to some of the poorest in Childress.  Like a young family […]

LEA HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN THE ONLY GIRL FOR ME

Lea hasn’t always been the only girl for me. There have been others. Nine or ten to be exact, and all of them over the age of 70. They were the sweetest group of Christian ladies that I fell in love with years ago. When Lea and I moved to Tulia in 1992, we got […]

10 OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO EAT IN CHILDRESS

Right now in my life, I’ve found that the advantages of living in a small community far out weigh the disadvantages.  One of the things a small community might not have is an abundance of choices when it comes to places to eat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find plenty of good things at […]

SUMMING UP THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Here are some of my favorite quotes from other bloggers who have tried to sum up last night’s presidential election… My son kind of stunned me with this thought: “Just think, Daddy, it was only 50 years ago that black people weren’t even allowed to vote in some places.” Whatever you think of Barack Obama’s […]

WHAT I REMEMBER ABOUT HALLOWEEN

Halloween was a big event around my house when I was a kid. It meant two things: dressing up to get candy and Christmas was right around the corner. We didn’t get a lot of candy growing up, so we couldn’t wait to start knocking on doors in the neighborhood. When it came to costumes […]

BUY HIM A MANLY VALENTINE GIFT

Your man doesn’t want a teddy bear or a girly gift this Valentine’s Day. Get him something manly! Two good ones that I think they missed were “new tires smell” and “diesel.” Those would be excellent manly smells.
