The following conversation took place at lunch today between Taylor, our son who is in the Army, and his mother … who is very girly. I found a lot of humor in it. MOM: Are you still sleeping on the top of your covers at night so you don’t have to re-make your bed in […]

There’s a new driver in the Morgan family. Connor passed his driving test yesterday and is itching to go somewhere … anywhere … without a parent in the car with him. Connor has taken over driving the old Firebird. Even though it’s on its second motor, it still cleans up nice and gets 30 mpg […]

Skinny Dip’n at the Neighbors

I was riding around with my two youngest boys a while back when they said … “Dad, can we get a hot tub … we never get to hot tub?” My response was, “Boys, we don’t need a hot tub … we’ve got something better … we’ve got friends with hot tubs. Wanna go right […]

What Do You Feed a Bunch of Texas Kids? How About 135 Biscuits!

The Morgan family had a great Christmas break. Two full weeks of playing, eating, visiting and having fun. As my kids get older, I’m beginning to realize that what makes Christmas special is not the gifts, but everyone getting to be home.  We were blessed to get to have Taylor home for a full 16 […]

Train Your Children … You Don’t Have Them Very Long

We’ve received three letters from Taylor to this point, and he’s doing very well in basic training and loving Army life. One of the things Taylor knew when he chose to enlist in the Army was that there probably wouldn’t be a lot of positive Christian influence there. Lea and I have prayed numerous times that […]

Taylor … Army Strong

I’ve been doing my best to avoid writing this post. It’s not that I’m scared of it or that I’m ignoring it, it’s just that I didn’t want it to come … at least this quickly. For those of you that don’t know, our oldest son Taylor, leaves next week for Basic Training at Fort […]

You’ll find two outside cats that are meow-challenged. Yes, neither cat knows how to meow.  The male cat only makes squeaking sounds like a chipmunk or squirrel when he wants something to eat.

Lea Is Still the Girl for Me

I still remember it like it was yesterday. The music went from loud to soft, the lights were dimmed and the disco ball in the middle of the room made little colored lights dance on the skating-rink floor. It was then that the DJ said, “Alright it’s couple skate time, and girls, it’s your choice.” […]

Building Memorial Houses in Honduras

We’re planning on building LOTS of houses while in Honduras next month. It may be everyone’s favorite thing to do. There’s SO much reward in building a house, and at the end of the day praying with the family that is to receive it saying, “God bless you … this is yours.” Sometimes people pay […]

Reconnecting in My Marriage

Married couples, especially those with children at home, need to regularly reconnect by … Going on a date every week. Going on an overnight trip once every 3 months. Going on a long trip (more than one night) once a year. I’ve always preached this … but have struggled with following the third one. Lea […]

News from the Morgan house…

Lea and I started a bathroom remodel project about two months ago. Nothing tests your marriage like a home remodeling project with your spouse. Lea and I had our moments, but all and all we did alright.   With a little help from our friends, we finished re-tiling the shower, patching the walls, texturing the […]

Women Drivers

After school this past Wednesday, Cooper ran to my pickup instead of going at his usual leisurely pace. He was in a hurry to get to the barbershop so he could beat everyone else and not have to wait.  He was out of breath when he jumped in my pickup and said, “Come on Dad, […]

It’s In Your Blood, Kid.

You’ve heard it said that opposites attract. Maybe that’s why Lea and I have always worked so well together.  She and I are direct opposites in many areas.  For example: I’m a morning person and love to wake up at 5 a.m.  Lea’s not a morning person. In fact in the mornings she needs an […]

I Never Thought My Sweet Wife would do THIS to me!

Lea and I did our Meals on Wheels route in a blizzard this week. The ground was covered in snow, the wind was blowing 40 mph and I told her to drive while I braved the elements taking the food to the door. As I zipped up to the door of the second house, I […]

What Life has Taught Me

When I was young, my mom regularly told me to pray for wisdom. When I left home for the first time, every letter she sent me closed with this line, “And, don’t forget to pray for wisdom – Love Mom.” She’s a wise woman and she knew that true wisdom never stops learning. As I […]

It’s Just the Way God Made Families

I think God’s got a huge sense of humor; why else would he put polar opposites in families. Our four boys are so different from one another. We have a couple who are strong-willed. One that is laid-back. Some who are VERY outgoing and another that will do anything to avoid the spotlight. Every person […]

“Stand Back and Watch the Magic Happen”

My favorite body wash and shampoos are those that are the cheapest. Yes, I’ll admit, I’m cheap when it comes to shampoos and such. I don’t need expensive name brands when the cheap stuff works just as well. This week when I ran out of body wash, I asked Lea to pick some up for […]
