Fall Finals and Graduations


Many college students are taking their fall finals at this time and I hope the very best for them as they prepare to take those exams. I remember those days very well.

I graduated in the Spring from Hiwassee College in 1992 with an associates degree. In the Fall of 1994 I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with my bachelors. So I have done both major seasonal graduations. I kind of like fall better.

So to all those preparing for a next semester or the next chapter of your lives may you have peace and grace for the days to come.. God bless.


My Sports Saturday


I have watched Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in Premier League Football/Soccer play and now I am watching my alma mater Middle Tennessee State University play Marshall University in hoops. The last couple of weeks I have watched the Olympics. Yeah, sometimes I wanna check out some sports not as gender cliche’ but there is something about the drama of it all.

NCAA March Madness 2013 – Go MTSU! Go UTC!


March Madness also known as the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments begin this week. I have three teams in the hunt.

Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders play tomorrow against St. Marys
Middle Tennessee State Lady Raiders play against Louisville
Chattanooga Lady Mocs take on Nebraska

It’s going to be a great tournament and I have three teams who I hope go far. Go Blue Raiders, Go Lady Blue Raiders, Go Lady Mocs!

The More Things Change…


We are in Murfreesboro, Tennessee where I went to college at Middle Tennessee State University. From 2000-2004 we lived and worked here and have fond memories and great friends. Much has changed all over.

There are lots of new things and some old favorites are not here any longer. Even our church here has had some changes.

We are stunned at what cool thing are here now. But its hard to get around. Traffic is as bad as we remember. You can’t stop progress but it can go slow.

Things change, life goes on. Explosive growth in Murfreesboro has surprised us every time we have visited. We need to come back more often.
