El Jefe Magnifico

May 7, 2014

Some people seem to have an internal compass. They never get turned around and can tell you which way is east while inside a big hospital. (Does anyone else get weirded out in a hospital like you are a rat in a maze trying to either find the cheese or find the exit door?) Well, […]

The Window

February 23, 2014

The three brothers sat around the fire. Each pop of the wood sent an ember on a twirling dance across the night, lending their beauty to the darkness for a brief moment in time. The last question hung in the air like a fog that shrouds all but the immediate surroundings. None of them knew […]

December 28, 2013

23 “If you’re gonna grab a knee and worship God and you realize that your brother or amigo is mad at ya, 24 get up and track ‘em down and get things right between ya’ll. Get things straightened out and then come back and offer your prayers. -Matthew 5:23-24 SCV Apologies are probably the most […]

Without Fear, There Can Be No Courage

December 12, 2013

On Wednesday, I received a phone call that makes your heart skip a beat and your knees go weak. A man I dearly love, that has been there for me at my lowest, that I look up to and admire…he has cancer. When you’re a pastor, you’re supposed to know what to say in these […]

The Deathly Duel at the Jurrasic (Road Side) Park

November 20, 2013

I had just come up out of a draw that was probably forty feet wide and took longer than forty minutes to get through. Three different times I had to back my horse up and look for another way. I had to get off one time and me and my horse army crawled through the […]

October 16, 2013

They Said I’m Going to Hell

September 27, 2013

…and supposedly I’m taking you with me. Every kid, at some point in their life, gets bitten by an ant. Now I will have to say that I’ve never been bitten by a fire ant, but that’s just because I’ve never lived anywhere they lived. But I’ll tell you what, those black and red ones […]

Bull Protection

August 15, 2013

I pulled the rope until my little brother (who is bigger than me) said stop. He laid the tail of the rope over his hand and then wrapped it around one time before holding on to it again. I patted him on the back and told him, “Bear down!!” I don’t know who was more […]

No-It-Alls vs M.O.R.O.N.s

June 7, 2013

I did something yesterday that was way out of my comfort zone. I said, “No”. I was raised like most of you were. If someone needed something then you had better have a pretty darn good excuse for not being able to help. If someone, especially an older person, asked you a question, then you […]
