Highs and Lows

Highs and Lows

It’s been well over a month since I wrote something on my blog.  It’s been a month of extreme highs and lows. I left on December 8th for Orlando, Florida. With Traci, my wife and best friend in the world, where we spent 5 days at Disney World (sans kids) celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We had the time of our life. We had been planning on this for awhile. We…

Closing A Chapter

Closing A Chapter

Whew… I’m not sure if I can write this or not. Twenty-one years ago I became a dad. Eighteen years ago I became a father of two incredible daughters. Just about thirteen years ago, I became a father of three, and now had a son. One of the things we have “tried” to do with our kids is teach them to be lovers of Jesus and to pursue Him. We…

Taking New Risks

Taking New Risks

Last night I did something I don’t normally do… well at least not anymore. At 18 I wouldn’t have given it a second thought. At 28 I probably would have done it. At 38 I couldn’t afford to do it. At 48, I have settled in a bit too much and become a bit too comfortable with myself and my surroundings.  I hate that. It is the exact opposite what…

Stuck In The Middle

Stuck In The Middle

Life for a 48 year old American just isn’t easy sometimes. It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but I’ve been busy. Traveling to visit family. Getting my oldest daughter home from an Alaska internship. Getting her back to college. Getting my youngest daughter off to college for the first time. Getting my son into Jr. High. He’s running cross country, so we’ve had those practices and meets. And going…

Three Do-Overs I Would Like

Three Do-Overs I Would Like

I’m approaching the ripe old age of 48 in a couple months… and I don’t really like it.  I wouldn’t mind hitting the pause button on my life so I could catch up with things. I’m certainly not complaining. I have a great life. Far better than I deserve, that’s for sure. I’m just saying that I reflect on the past from time to time to help pave a better…

I Changed Churches This Last November

After about 12-13 years of going to Grace Community Church in Arlington, TX, we felt like God was leading us to move on. Now, I realize that this is not really a HUGE deal and that people do this all the time, but, after a dozen years, it makes it harder to pull the trigger on that kind of a decision. I actually felt like 3 years ago that God…

Check Out Josh In A Disney Commerical!

This past summer we were contacted by a representative from Disney’s marketing arm, called Disney Destinations.  They were putting together the new marketing campaign to promote the Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California.  They were scouring the web when they came across one of our Disney videos on our Vimeo Video page. They liked some of the segments and asked permission to use some of them.  We…

Flash Flood – Tropical Storm Hermine

I mostly want to share a few pictures of what Tropical Storm Hermine dumped on us in North Texas.  Even after several hundred miles after making land fall, Hermine dumped about 5 inches of rain on Tuesday, and then unloaded another 10 inches on Wednesday. My daughters left for school at 7:30 am, driving our Jeep Liberty. Somewhere after 9:30 my oldest daughter calls to say that the water is…
