Mindful meditation, such as on the things of God, actually calms your brain.

After meditating, excite your brain with walking prayers - no minimum speed.

Micah6.8 - do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.

Millions of us use the Revised Common Lectionary readings each week:


There are daily readings that complement the weekly readings:


please note that M-W readings look back at last Sunday's texts, Th-Sa look ahead to the next Sunday's texts.

My Goals:
Meeting new people, encouraging others, walk @least 5 miles a week, lose 59 pounds by Mar2015, find a healthy church of disciples of Jesus and function like the family we are. Simple, eh?

My Program:
Team challenges, daily sparking, co-op w/ VA doctors, simplify my life, practical help to neighbors I meet in this life. Listen to bible audio at bedtime helps too!

Personal Information:
I love to cook and bake, but I live for BBQ. Hahaha it ain't BBQ if it ain't smoked ;-)

I fingerpick guitar, since 1973 (hero:Chet Atkins, bb king). Play piano (fav: ragtime, Edvard Grieg). Blow coronet & trombone (fav: wynton marsalis, chuck mangione) and still enjoy Earth,Wind and Fire; Pink Floyd; Stevie Ray Vaughn -- incl' Mary had a little lamb.
I also really dig Stephen Curtis Chapman, Chuck Girard and Love Song, Larry Norman, and of course Keith Green

Other Information:
"When life gives you a bunch of lemons, make orange juice and leave them wondering" -- Instagram fm my niece.

I am a broken caregiver of my disabled wife; since my stroke/drain bamage [you can smile at that, ironic THe Wink] in Dec'08.

Who says God has no sense of humor? He made me, didn't he?

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. It has been an adventure with Buddy being diagnosed. I too only live in the present. There is NO looking back with regrets, only thank you's for the lessons learned. It was special to have someone out of the blue just send me a Goodie. Thank you again!

    You were asking about a specific part of town? MJ and I are on the North East side of town. I really like it; we are near bus stops, libraries, and lots of stuff within walking distance. You might try off of Starcrest and 410; there are a lot of apartments over there and it is very centrally located.
