Good Morning! What a morning!  This was the last group run in Salem and what a run it was.  Thank you Dru Howard for orchestrating something I will cherish forever.  The run began in our drive and we were surprised by folks along the way with signs and love.  We ended up back at the…

Good Morning! A busy Monday is over and we ended packing until we were too loopy to continue.  We are about there, we certainly are in the war zone stage at the house.  The poor animals know something is up, they just don’t have a clue.  This will be their first move and we are…

Good Morning! I have returned from Annual Conference and I must say it was wonderful.  What a great job by our new Bishop and all that worked hard to make the days be of value.  This year of course was bitter sweet.  This is that last week before the moving van comes for our stuff.  We…

Good Morning! What a difference a day makes!  It was chilly as we ran this morning, but it was great to have the sun up when we finished.  Please keep the Missouri Annual Conference in your prayers as we meet this weekend.  A great event to gather and be centered as the church in Christ….

Good Morning! A sunny and dry day in the Ozarks.  We had a great run this morning, fun to have a crew to run with.  Carol and I are soon to be running alone in the hills of NW Missouri, what a change.  I guess we will have to be looking for a new running…

Good Morning! Monday has arrived and June is in full swing.  John and I got the trees all cut and stacked as firewood on Saturday.  I can’t thank John Maledy enough for all his hard work.  This is the week of Annual Conference.  We will be in Springfield for the weekend as we all gather…

Good Morning! Welcome to June!  I always think of my high school buddy Doug Thompson on this day.  Doug had a June 1 birthday and I remembered it because mine is July 1.  We had a nice run this morning, then I took the pups for a walk.  It looks to be a great day!…

A Morning Message Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Good Morning! We say goodbye to the month of May.  I received a notice from my running app that I had ran 100 miles this month.  I find this interesting because for awhile I was running 100 miles every month, I have slowed down.  It was a lovely morning to be out, it is so…

Good Morning! What a weekend!  Salem experienced one of the worst storms in years.  We were without power for 20 hours and we were fortunate, there are still folks without power.  We were able to have worship Sunday, but we did it in the dark.  Thanks to all that helped pull it together.  First Baptist…
