The kids have been off for 7 days in the past three weeks for snow, President’s Day, and a sick day. Needless to say, we have spent some time huddled around the fire and in front of the playstation. They have also been to work with Susan and I more than they care to remember! Melisa has just asked me to smell her various flavors of lip gloss while Marshall is shooting animals on playstation and Madelyn has been in my room reading all day. This may seem mundane, but to me, it is a precious time. They will be gone before I know it and Susan and I will miss having to juggle work schedules, ball games and ballet. May we all enjoy the journey before its over.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past twelve years. My wife Susan and I have three children: Madelyn, Marshall and Melisa. When we aren't attending a ballet or ballgame somewhere, you can find us...oh who am I kidding... this season of life always finds us at a ballgame (Marshall and Melisa) or a ballet (somewhat less now that Madelyn is living in Anapolis, MD.). The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
