Early New Year's morning, after we stopped by to make sure the heat was on in Rocky's cabin, Junker drove my brother Chuck and I to the Trailhead near his home in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania. For just a few glorious moments I was back on the Appalachian Trail.
As I snapped the photo below, I couldn't help but think that this was the perfect to begin the New Year.
Now that another holiday season is quickly fading into memory, we find our thoughts rapidly focusing...Read Full Post »

For the 54th consecutive year I am home for Christmas, fulfilling a promise I made to my Mom when I was a teenager. I told her then that, no matter where in the world I might be any other time of the year, Christmas would forever be reserved for her. That pledge has not always been easy to keep, but keep it I have, and I am so much the richer for it.
With all the changes life has brought these many years, the Christmas Season has remained a wonderful constant.&...Read Full Post »

It has taken three days to get to this point, but the tree at George and Naomi White's home is finally decorated. One reason the project took so long was the several "other things" occurring each day that demanded our attention.
But that's not the only reason. It's not even the most important one.

I look forward to Christmas all year. It is, without a doubt, my favorite season....Read Full Post »

I just want to take a moment and thank everyone who has called the past couple of days, wondering how my Mom is getting along in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
East Brunswick suffered a direct hit. Mom's house however, suffered no visible damage or flooding. She spent the ni...Read Full Post »

I'm headed east. My time in the beautiful southwest is over for another year. As I sit here at a Walmart this morning waiting on the mechanic to finish an oil change on the van, I can't help but reflect on the multitude of memories that flood my mind from these past three weeks in the desert.
Tackling correspondence, camping in the Jemez mountains of New Mexico, meeting new friends at Elephant ...Read Full Post »

Elephant Butte Lake State Park, New Mexico
Joe and Rae Edenhofer are originally from Grand Rapids, but they live here now. They have fond memories of their time in Michigan, for it was there many years ago they came to Christ under the ministry of Pastor John White at the Calvary Baptist Church.
Of course, I didn't know any of this as I pulled into the State Park entrance Saturday morning. I read about this ...Read Full Post »
