Thoughts from the waiting room

I don’t like the thought of having to go through surgery. Never have. I am grateful that I have been blessed with good health so multiple surgeries haven’t been an issue yet a recurring irrational fear that I might get sick plus the anxiety of anticipating two colonoscopies and a tonsillectomy as a five year old has been…

What is leadership?

What is a leader? Is it someone who is assigned a task and oversees the execution of it? Or is a leader more than that? I suggest that a leader is not just the person at the top. Leadership often comes from those in the group who have vision. The best definition of leadership that I’ve ever heard comes from leadership guru John Maxwell.…

Age is just a number

Sometimes I feel young. Sometimes I feel old. Today, August 7th, the calendar says that I’m 64. I put this picture up to remind myself that I still do some young things like play in a rock band but I also do my share of older guy things like go to bed at 9pm. One of my heroes in the OT is a man named Caleb. At age 85, he was still hunting giants!…

Surviving the Dog Days

I learned something today. The term “Dog Days of Summer” has it’s origins in ancient Greek mythology. Check it out. For me, and most Americans I would assume, we have made the term synonymous with the hottest days of summer. I tend to get lazy during this season. Somehow getting out of my car and into the outdoor…

God is on the move

God is on the move. Even on summer vacation. Just ask Alan. Alan:  Just a word of thanks to everyone at Life 101.9 for their good work. Many people, including myself, have a problem from time to time with a song getting stuck in their head. Usually not a good thing. However, with Life 101.9 that is never a bad thing. Frequently as I leave…

Faith beyond the math

Did you know that the number of songs we play on Life 101.9 is kind of a mathematical calculation? The size of our playlist provides both variety AND familiarity in just the right proportions. Concerts are different because we focus our attention on just one artist who has an hour or more to reach us with their music. One of the things…

Shout out to Grace

A special shout out to the “Snap, Crackle, Pop Club” from Grace Church in Shellsburg. They invited me to come speak to them yesterday morning. It was my first appointment after my long weekend of grand kids, hot dogs and bottle rockets. We had a great time together. The Snap, Crackle, Pop Club are mostly attenders of Grace…

Pray for Deb

My Fellow Colleagues and Prayer Partners- Our fellow staff member and friend Deb Pugh found out several weeks ago that the breast cancer that she fought several years ago has returned. Deb is the friendly voice that answers our phone when you call. She’s on heavy dosage of chemo and in need of your prayers. As you may know, Deb has…

Caution: lives under construction

Looks can be deceiving. You probably saw that picture with my son and grandson at the lake, read my opening comments and assumed that fishing was what we did when the kids were young. You had no reason not to. It’s like that when we first meet people and it stays that way if we don’t pursue a relationship with them. We must…

Summertime escape

I go to the movies nearly every week. I know people who watch several movies a week if you count rentals and theatre attendance. That’s not me but I do see my share of ‘em and I usually go to the movies. I rarely rent one. I’m especially movie prolific in the summer. For me,  the movie theatre is an easy way to get out…
