Better breathing

December 29, 2022

A very young cowboy is reading a terrific book entitled Breath by James Nestor. I’ve known for a long time that I snore, have sleep apnea, and that both are not conducive to optimum living. This book posits that the world is chock full of mouth breathers and that deep, slow, nasal breathing is far […]

Dreams

December 27, 2022

We’ve known since childhood that a ballon is an inanimate object. To bring it to life, one must take it in their hands and fill it with life giving air. So it is with dreams. We are called to take an inanimate object and animate it with clear intention, focused effort, and unstoppable belief. Without […]

A lesson learned

December 25, 2022

A pastor from New York City was on a mission trip in Argentina. He was, through an interpreter, sharing the gospel with people…many who were the poorest of the poor. From a nearby tent, a woman emerged and knelt at his feet. She took a rag and began buffing his shoes that had become covered […]

Wonderland

December 22, 2022

My wife sometimes just shakes her head in wonder when I return from another day on the river…another day when those wily trout with the pea sized brains disregarded every fly offered. ”I don’t know what it is that draws you like a magnet to the river so often, honey.” I guess time has taught […]

Coach Bus Bergman

December 20, 2022

He was a kind and good hearted man. Bus Bergman was a coach, mentor and decorated war hero from World War 2. I was reading Buzz Bizzinger’s excellent book entitled The Mosquito Bowl, when he mentioned our renowned and totally unassuming baseball coach at Mesa Junior College. I’ll encourage you to read this incredible book […]

Why didn’t I think of this?

December 2, 2022

Sally and her very young cowboy husband love to kick back and watch Shark Tank. Tonight’s episode was a classic. A couple from Loveland strode onstage to introduce their product/contraption. They, like most of us, are fascinated by hummingbirds. So, to get an up close and personal look at these fantastic, feathered friends, one just […]

Hope

There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow. Orison Swett Marden
