Silouette of Me-pic of Ken

I’m in mid-life. I’m not at all in a mid-life crisis, but aging is sobering and thought-provoking. What am I to do with the rest of my life? At mid-life you think every day about how much time you have left to do what God has called you to do this side of the next life.
I’m a Follower of Jesus.
This I know. I am a follower of Jesus and I always will be. Whatever my future holds I will always and eternally be first and foremost a joyful, …

Sometimes life can just crush you. It can break your heart. There are seasons disappointment can be so oppressive that you wonder how you can go on. I’ve had a bit of pain and disappointment in my life over the years. Sometimes to buffer the pain of life I have visited the little village of Mayberry (the setting for the old Andy Griffith television series). Sometimes I have visited Walton’s Mountain. In the last twenty years I have returned over and over again to Jan Karon’s village of Mitford in …

The house is silent in sleep. The world outside still dark. It is the beginning of a fresh, new week. It’s a peaceful and beautiful time of the year where I live.

When I was a boy my mom always tried to force me to eat vegetables—spinach, oh my. Brussels’s Sprouts. Cauliflower. Broccoli. Squash. She was always buggin’ me to eat this stuff. I didn’t like any of it. Finally I reached an age where I could make all my own food choices. I began to eat what I wanted and walked away from veggies, except corn with butter and salt, potatoes with butter and salt, peas with butter and salt, green beans with butter, salt, and bacon fat—Oh, and fries.
