Today I received my favorite annual Christmas Card.
It’s from my friend and teacher Mary Pat. Each year I await this card, but this year it got lost in the mail and arrived perfectly today.
I am thankful for the wisdom that Mary Pat built in my heart and in my mind.
She taught me to be wise. To love our patients, value them and be their student. “We all are teacher and all students,” she used to say to me years and years ago, so many I refuse to count!
Dear friend, today I am thankful to you for giving me the gift of your wisdom.
Peace and see you soon.

Unto us a Child is Born

I am second.
I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer.
My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family.
Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself.
My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul.
What is your temenos circle?
