On a recent trip to look for some farm land for the family we scared the local wild life.  The deer and turkey where on the move across the field like the wildebeest in Lion King.  It was an amazing site as we drove down one dirt road and then doubled back on the next…

Preserving Grandfather’s Story

On our recent trip to visit family, my mother and I stayed up very late one evening going through old pictures and papers.  I learned many interesting bits of information about my own heritage, but one piece of information especially inspired me.  My mother handed me a stack of papers and said that it was…

MT. Soledad Cross – Already Lost

Reading a recent article about the ACLJ and the Mt. Soledad Cross reminds me a lot of my last post about the National Right To Life.    Why is it that a good organization becomes “big” and turns lukewarm?  I remember back in the day when Jay Sekulow would represent various pro-life leaders when they were…

Sticking to Principles – Well Done Brian Harris!

August 7, 2006
By

I was proud to read Brian Harris’s comments on Bob Corker at the Conservatives for Corker Blog today.  This is more than I have come to expect in our culture where friendship and support are too easily purchased.  The betrayal of the unborn by the National Right to Life, as mentioned in this same article, is more…

If Corker wasn’t good enough yesterday, why today?

August 4, 2006
By

Here is a problem with situational party politics.  Its all about party and very little about principle.  You have groups like the conservative Team GOP and others who go all out for a primary and blast someone like Bob Corker.  They tell you all the things he has done wrong and why he is not…

Labor and Work:  Good for the body and soul

Even with all our house work (remodel), we have enjoyed working outside on gardens, vines, clearing land, tearing down falling-down outbuildings…. The children have thrived on full days of exercise, mud, working with tools, playing house and building all sorts of interesting things out of wood and nails or cardboard and sawdust. The toddlers “work”…

Fruit of the Vine – a look at our vineyard

Our vineyard is small and actually only consists of 4 vines.  So I guess it isn’t a real vineyard, but we like to think of it that way. A while back, we visited a real vineyard and had the opportunity to let the children pick grapes. Although these grapes were not “eating” type grapes, they…
