Family Cat Lost for 103 Days – Found!

Our cat Daisy got out on September 3rd.  The kids were crushed and after a 20 day search, hundreds of flyers and even a blog (lostcat.info) we gave up.  Yesterday, 103 days later, a guy calls us and says he found our cat.

He was driving not far from our house and picked this frail white cat up while she was trying to get down a hole.  She was skin and bones and very weak.

A week later he saw a tattered piece of paper taped to a street sign, flipped it over and it was one of our flyers.  He called us up and we picked her up last night.  Wow…

SERMON: Created for His Glory

I had the opportunity to speak at Lafayette Church in West St. Louis County last month.  I discuss how awesome God is and how cool he thinks his creation is, especially you…

Love to hear what you think.  I rarely get a chance to preach…

Christmas Records


When Pinkerbelle first saw the record player she thought it would slide in a big slot in front.  She said, “wow, those are big DVDs”.

My first born thought it was supposed to have a big horn on top so we could hear them.

During one of my wife’s many trips to the thrift store, she picked up a record player.  We have a collection of Christmas music on records and now we can listen to them.  It’s pretty cool.
