Blessed Beyond Measure?

What if it was every day?

Just like January 1st, what if every new day felt like a Sunday?

Asking this in the context of Sunday being a typical (of course this varies for everyone) day of worship.

What if every day we felt a special sense of worship?

And what if not only every day, but all day?

Would our lives change?

31 Days Of Thanksgiving

Thankful for a solarium

Wheelchair parking


The solarium is one room over from the 90-year old’s double-occupancy Nursing Home room. The solarium permanently doubles as overflow parking for resident’s wheelchairs that if left in their rooms, would crowd their already tight living quarters.

i’m thankful for overflow parking, even though it isn’t aesthetically enhancing the solarium.

There’s a long list for why i’m thankful versus the easy list for “why doesn’t the Nursing Home find a more visually pleasing solution?”

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


Blessed Beyond Measure?

In a perfect world the answer is always yes

Central Florida sidewalk walkers
Such an unassuming sidewalk. It held (and still holds) my Olympic dream.


In everything give thanks?


Even tragedy?

In a perfect world, yes.


Because we can take solace in knowing that God wastes nothing.

Do you have end of the year holiday traditions?


For how long?

How’d they start?

Why do you keep them alive?

Ever do something for so long you start to take it for granted?

Maybe, right?

Two days ago Thanksgiving morning began with what started 15 years ago as expectant parents with a dog.

Dear readers, Happy Thanksgiving

Dear readers, Happy Thanksgiving.

The hopeful feeling of gratitude that our American forefathers felt when they gathered on the original Thanksgiving Day…

May we carry that over into every remaining day we get to spend on Earth.
