I'm just a messenger boy.  And I'm delivering the same wonderful message that was given to me!  The message that Jesus died for my sins, He was buried, then He was raised from the dead on the 3rd day just as the Scriptures foretold (1 Corinthians 15:1-9).  Now Jesus sits with God in heaven pleading on my behalf (Romans 8:33-34)!  I was once blind, but now I see (John 9:35-39).  Not because I am anything special or because I have been good enough.  I'm not a good speaker, I can't act, I'm not particularly good looking, I am not wealthy and sometimes I really mess things up.  I have been saved by the grace of God and what Jesus did for me on the cross.  In fact, nothing I have done or could have done can save me.  My salvation is a free gift from God through Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23).

The world's view of religion is mankind searching for God.  Man attempting to be good enough, or work hard enough, to win God's approval - hoping to "find God".  Rather, it's the other way around - God finds us!  God desires to have a relationship with His creation!  God calls out to us, but we’re hard of hearing.  So He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to do all the work for us.  All we have to do is realize that our situation is hopeless without this gift, and place our faith in Him to save us.  If you would like to know more about this wonderful message, please don't delay.  Send us an email or click on the Do You Know God link below.

I have a lot of interests.  Truthfully, too many interests.   This blog contains some of my own personal and various topics as I grow & learn.  My favorite topic is what God is doing in my life.  Favorite because He has done so much for me.  Another favorite topic is my wife, children and now grandchildren.  This blog contains some of that too.


Taking pictures is something I enjoy very much.  Some of these photos will end up here, on Pinterest, Twitter or Google+.  No one would dare call me a professional photographer.  Although I have done photography at a few weddings and other events.  I just like taking pictures and sharing them with others.  Hopefully you'll like them too.


I think I'm a pretty funny guy.  My wife says that they're the same jokes she's been hearing since we were married.  I think my wife is funny too.


Yep, I said baking.  I like to bake for two reasons.  First, baking is like chemistry.  If you mix the right components, under the right conditions, you can make new compounds.  Mix these compounds together, again under the right conditions, and you arrive at the desired result - cookies, bread, cake, pancakes or soufflé.  Mix them together wrong and you end up with a brick.

The other reason why I like to bake is to see the reaction of those who benefit from my baking.  Studies show that smell and taste are the strongest memory triggers.  The best reactions are the ones I get from folks who eat what I bake is when they say, "I remember when my grandmother used to bake something like this..."  It's a making people happy thing.

Everything Else

I'll throw in a few of my other interests as we go along.  Check out my Recent Posts for a handle on what to read.

Finally, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of the page.  No... there are no prizes involved.
