My trusty steed is this 2007 Ford Expedition featuring Ford’s Eddie Bauer package. I acquired it in December 2013 after losing our minivan in an accident in San Antonio. It was a one-owner vehicle when I bought it, and the previous owner kept it in immaculate condition. Now approaching 148,000 miles it runs like a top, rides real smooth, and has tons of cargo space. What does my choosing to drive an Expedition say about me? I have no idea. But I like it.

I took this photo in the cell phone waiting lot at Dallas Love Field so the colleague I was picking up would have no question as to what vehicle to seek upon exiting the airport.
Brahms’ Requiem. A magnificent piece of music celebrating the Christian passage from this life into life eternal with our Lord, Jesus Christ, as it honors the pain and grief that each of us bear at the loss of a loved one. I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to learn this piece with the Chorale of First Baptist Church of Keller and perform this piece with the Chorale, the Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary Chorus, and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. We honor God with our music – Soli Deo Gloria!
Then David spoke to the chiefs of the Levites to appoint their relatives the singers, withinstruments of music, harps, lyres, loud-sounding cymbals, to raise sounds of joy. ~ 1 Chronicles 15:16
Looking forward to presenting this with the FBC Chorale, SWBTS chorus, and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in just a few months!
Texas BBQ is quite possibly the world’s perfect food, especially when well prepared. The folks at Red Barn BBQ in Colleyville offer consistently great BBQ in this fine atmosphere. After spending just over an hour and a half at our local vacuum store, we rewarded ourselves with a late, but delectable, BBQ lunch. Don’t let the empty dining room fool you – this was about 3PM.

When you eat lunch at 3PM you have the place to yourself. This is one of my favorite BBQ spots in DFW.
Work is more fun when you work with talented people who enjoy what they do. Such is the case with the people of IMA. I spent today with a group of coworkers strategizing on some of the prospective accounts we’re working on. Of course, no good strategy session is complete without a nice lunch. A great day indeed!
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. ~ Colossians 3:23-24

Throwback Thursday. This is my now 19 year old daughter held by her cousins Kendall & Bailey on November 10, 1996. Our son, Keith, wasn’t even born yet! The speed at which time passes never ceases to amaze me, as I still remember these girls looking just like they do in the picture. God has blessed me and my family with an abundance of beautiful memories. This is just one of many.
