Week 27: Stop the Presses, Start the Work

Week 27: Stop the Presses, Start the Work

The editor hammers away at his typewriter, a worn fedora pulled low over one eye. He rolls his battered cigar from one side of his mouth to the other, completely absorbed in his work. The only people in the room besides him are the other four editors; slowly checking stories and making sure that they’re ready to be carried to the presses. Okay, so maybe my idea of a newspaper editor was a bit skewed. But … Read entire article »

Week 26: A Day on the River

Week 26: A Day on the River

Remember those Tom Sawyer stories? You know, the ones where Tom and Huck are just drifting down the river, as relaxed as can be? Well, today I got to experience a little of that; just drifting down a river as calm as can be. Well, okay, so there were some rapids, but for the most part, the Hiawassee was like a mirror, reflecting the gorgeous scenery around me. And to make things even better, I … Read entire article »

Week 25: Go Take a Hike

Week 25: Go Take a Hike

Today, I took a hike. Not a little kid hike, where you walk for five minutes and call it a day (apologies to little kids). And not a military hike either, when you trudge for thirty miles in -15˚ weather through two feet of snow. No, this was a nice friendly, lovely hike (even though we didn’t take enough water); just long enough to get tired out, but just short enough to allow you to … Read entire article »

Week 24: A Day with Chuck

I thought that my family went to Florida to have a good time (if you’re a kid) and to unload some stress (if you’re a parent). That’s partly true, but the main reason we came to he Sunshine State was to see the man I met with today, Chuck Germany. That shows you how much my dad thinks of Chuck as a person; and after my time with him today, I’m starting to share his … Read entire article »

Week 23: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned

Week 23: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned

They say that a fool and his money are easily parted. Through experience, I have found this to be quite true. Even though most people wouldn’t consider themselves “fools”, they do fail to do certain things that would save them money, and soon find themselves separated from their wages. So you may ask; how does one avoid playing the part of the fool? Well, that just happens to be what I learned today, when I … Read entire article »

Week 22: Hello Tonight

Week 22: Hello Tonight

There is only one word to describe what happened yesterday; INCREDIBLE! You may ask, what did I do that was so amazing? I’ll tell you. I spent the day with Alan Knowles, President of Dove Ministries International, otherwise known as DMI. That may not seem “incredible” in and of itself, but there’s more. Thanks to some really good timing, yesterday just happened to be the day that DMI brought Chris Tomlin and TobyMac to town … Read entire article »
