I’m a husband, father, musician, avid reader, and baseball fan. At this point, I am sixty-something (this way I don’t have to update every year).
I’ve been a musician for as long as I can remember, first getting piano lessons in, I believe, the third grade. As those continued, my father began teaching me guitar. When I came of age, I began playing trombone, which I played through junior high, high school, college, and seminary. I have also been a singer, probably longer than any of the above. I currently play keyboard (I have a Nord Elecro 6D 73) in the church worship band, where I also get to lead at least one song a week. I also play and sing in our monthly Night of Worship event. Sadly, my guitar fingers have grown soft, as have my trombone playing chops.
Above all, I am a Jesus-follower, and do my best (well, not always) to walk in his kingdom daily. This blog is my daily devotional. Each morning, I read selections from several resources and choose one to highlight in the blog, typically the one that speaks the most to my heart.
As for baseball, for years my primary team has been the Boston Red Sox, as my all-time favorite player is Carl Yastrzemski. However, as of this year, my primary allegiance has shifted to the home team, the Texas Rangers. I live less than fifteen miles from Globe Life Park, their home stadium. The reason for the shift was because youngest daughter, who is autistic, has loved baseball and the Rangers for many years, now. I have decided that my family is more important than which baseball team I root for. I still love the Sox. But I will now root for the Rangers when they play each other.
Last, but certainly not least, I have been married to the most wonderful woman in the world for over thirty years. This is most definitely one of those “God things,” because there have been a couple of times when I deserved to lose her.
Thank you for reading, and I hope that God blesses you somehow, through this blog. If I can pray for you about anything, please feel free to leave a comment.
Grace and peace, friends.
