A Glimpse of the Past
Last night, my mom and dad brought over a Bible. Not just any Bible, but a Bible that has been in the family for a long time. My Great-Grandfather was a Methodist Circuit Preacher in the early 1900’s. The Rev. Jessee Morris traveled all around southwest Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee in the Holston Methodist Conference. He was born in
Saturday Night Update
The blog has been quiet for a couple of days because our family has been traveling. On Thursday we spent most of the day traveling down to Charleston, South Carolina to visit Jennifer’s sister and her family. Of course we had to make a detour through Charlotte so I could check out the new Ikea store and eat
A Snowy Sunday
The view from my front porch. I love watching snow pouring down. Peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. We’re enjoying a lazy Sunday snowy day at home with the kids. I’m also thankful that it held off long enough so that we had church this morning. God is good.

Our Adventure to See Christmas Lights
Our family drove to watch some Christmas lights over in North Carolina tonight. High Country Lights is in Glade Springs, which is about 20 minutes from our house.

I’m a country boy at heart
I traded in my ’98 Subaru Outback today on a ’04 Ford F-150. My Subaru has been good to me, but after 150,000 miles, it was time to say goodbye. Here are a few pics of the new truck. I think Jenni likes it better than I do. Now I just have to figure out how to hook up my
I’m going to borrow a tradition from my wife’s great blog. Jenni regularly posts her “thankful Thursday” list. On this great Thanksgiving Day, we all have so much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for … My wonderful wife – I continue to fall deeper and deeper in love with her. She is an amazing woman. We started dating 18
