road fare

There are so many great things to see when you are driving.  In the last few weeks I’ve caught these guys on the road.

Click this one to enlarge it.  The message runs from the upper window, to the lower window, to the tag.  It says,”Mama and Daddy didn’t by mine – huby did.”  And they actually spelled “buy” with just a “b” and a “y.  Though it’s not really their fault, spell check for window stickers doesn’t catch homonyms.

Like you, I thought “Ghost Busters” was just a movie.  But, to the contrary, they were in Gadsden last week.

The rear of the vehicle says “Paranormal detection and elimination service.  Who you gonna call?”  Yes, it says “Who you gonna call?”  If you are having this kind of problem, now you know who to call.  You might also seek some counseling.

This is one of the reasons I bought the Dare.  3.2 megapixel camera.  Not great, but good enough to catch these guys.  If you see me driving next to you one day while holding my phone up to the window, stop for a moment and think, “Am I doing anything stupid?”  If you are, check here the next day.

What great things have you seen on the road?


my bride//the pics

This my bride, Sonya.  She is so hot.

She is an incredible wife and an awesome mother.  And she is fine.  Wow.  I am so blessed.

Join us this Sunday as we dive into Romans 8:5-15.  Who are you controlled by?  The flesh or the Spirit?  How do you surrender to the Spirit’s control?  We’ll will look at these on Sunday.  This series has been very powerful and Sunday will be no different.  Here’s what we’ll sing:

He Reigns Forever (good old choir Brooklyn Tab number)
Let There Be Blessing
You Alone Are God
I Bow Down (the choir will sing this to teach the congregation)

As you read this, Travis, I know you are thinking “You’ve never done “I Bow Down” before?”  Nope.  But I scrolled down to “Unashamed Love” one day and fell in love with this one.  It hits our church right in the surrender area where God is really moving us right now.

Man, I can’t wait for Sunday.



Our fourth.  She is 2 and the curls are hanging in there.  Go curls.

It’s amazing what you can do in a burned out building.


seeking with urgency

As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
Psalm 42:1

O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1

I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
looking for my God.
Psalm 69:3

 God, give me that kind of urgency to know you more.


swim lessons – should we charge for this?

Our kids have the uncanny ability to teach others to swim.  When Austin arrived, he wouldn’t even put his head in the water.  By the time he left, he was diving to the bottom.  Way to go Austin!


P.S.  Our kids did it again last weekend during Victoria’s slumber party.  Amazing.

to all of our Little Rock friends who read this…


You know we love you all dearly.
