The Swing

The Swing by Robert Lewis Stevenson
How do you like to go up in a swing
Up in the air so blue?
Oh I do think it the pleasantest thing 
Ever a child can do.
Up in the air and over the wall
Till I can see so high
Rivers and trees and cattle and all over the countryside
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown
Up in the air I go flying again
Up in the air and down!

I'm Moving!

Hey Everyone!

I figured it was about time to separate my 'writing life' from my daily life (s if they don't intertwine inseparably.)

So I'm officially launching a separate blog spot for my writing ( and keeping this one for our family updates and silly pictures (called Stories of the Sixpack).  I'd love to see you in both spots, but won't be offended if the pictures and silly ramblings are more your style.  In either case, I hope you enjoy our time together.

Many Blessings,

What Does Your Heart Reveal?

I have waited weeks before posting this next segment, mostly because I felt uneasy about it's content. I hadn't quite gotten my hands comfortably around the meat of the message. But last night, God allowed me to handle some of the truths of His Word through a work by the great theologian - Dr. Martin Luther.

I had been searching for the source text for what I 'thought' was a quote by Luther, and ended up providentially coming across a compilation of writing of like-minded fellows called the Book of Concord. In it was Luther's commentary on the very subject this next segment tackles. Thank you, God.

p.s. The picture is just a silly picture of our oldest son pretending to have antlers growing out of his head. It makes me smile.
