2nd Cup – QTMs for 3/7/2020: WELL, ARE YOU?
Charlie “Tremendous” Jones once told me, “You grow when you can’t go on, but you refuse to quit!” I took what he said to heart, because I know he lived that philosophy. I’d read after him for years, and finally got the chance to meet him. I patiently stood in line for 8 months. When … Continue reading

Designing This Day, 3/7/18: IT’S YOURS. DO SOMETHING WITH IT.
I know every day when I awake still here, God’s given me a precious gift of 24 more hours of living. That’s not something I take for granted. Humanly speaking, I’d have been dead since May of 1997. My son and daughters would have been minus a dad all this time. My wife would have been widowed … Continue reading

100-Word Stroll, 7/4/17: FACING THE THREAT
The devil caught me with my head down and got excited until I looked up and said, “Amen.” I’ve been down before. It’s during those times I take comfort in 2 Corinthians 4:7-12. There’s a reason God leaves me on my own. I rarely know at the time what it is. Thankfully, I don’t have … Continue reading

100-Word Stroll, 10/27/16: IF IT WAS EASY, ANYBODY COULD DO IT
Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” I hate physical limitations. I like less being told I can’t do something. Young twerps getting air time just by sitting on their afts whining really grind my gears. Older ones, even more. You’ve heard it: “NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY. THEY SAID IT … Continue reading
100-Word Stroll for 8/31/16: 20 PUSH-UPS LATER . . .
63-year-old bodies scarred by repeated surgeries and pummeled by repeated traumas don’t respond well to exercise. I do it anyway. On the floor, stretching out muscle remnants that prefer sleep. 50 crunches. Working arms and shoulders with 10-lb. barbells. On doc’s orders, getting sun – natural ‘D’ – as often as possible since I’m unable … Continue reading
