Weather Channel Quits

This is the headline that I expect to see soon based on the weather we have been having in Georgia this year. We are going through all four seasons in a week. It is nuts! I truly don’t think I have ever witnessed weather that was this unpredictable. We are hot one day...

I Used to Could….

The title of this blog sounds like something from Jeff Foxworthy’s Redneck Dictionary. However, I find that is often a fitting phrase in my current world. This week I had to help, or should l say attempt to help, my son with math. “I used to could” do math! At one...

The Sacrifice

There was a break in the sub-zero temperatures that had prevailed for multiple days. The sun finally came out and the temperature reached a balmy twenty-four degrees. Two best friends decided it was time to get out of their houses and explore. They bundled properly...

Get Closer

I like detail in most things. Detail gives us security in that we feel something is thought out and thoroughly considered. In art, for example, I am intrigued by the detail that great artists place in a painting or sculpture. It somehow makes it more authentic to me....

Wow!

((Written by Chase Grindstaff) Just a few months ago I approached Pastor Scott about the idea of a student takeover service and to see all of it come together was amazing… I mean wow! Yesterday was an amazing day! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the response...

Guess What I Just Saw?!

We have all been in that moment when someone comes rushing into a room and proclaims, “Guess what I just saw?”  Depending on the inflection, this can be a very exciting moment.  Rarely does anyone turn down such a voyeuristic invitation.  We love a juicy moment. There...

Goodbye Football

It has been a tough season in my region. Our college team lost in the National Championship. Our Pro Team lost in the Playoffs. The only game left is the Super Bowl and it involves the two teams that gave us our last two postseason losses. There just seems to be no...

Bad Words

When my brother and I were young we played outside quite a bit. Often it was with our cousins or a neighbor or two. As play ensued and we got caught up in our world of imagination, every so often a bad word would slip out of someone’s mouth. Fear took over the moment....
