Who Has Despised the Day of Small Things?

A Glorious Day

Sarah and I took a day trip to Garden of the Gods today and it was glorious. We were celebrating her birthday a couple days late due to work and ministry responsibilities.

Losing the Little Routines

I miss my dad in the afternoons. Between 3 and 4, if it was a nice day, he’d take the dog outside and sit in his lawn chair beside my shed for an hour or so until the mail came. After the mail came, he’d slowly make his way with his walker down our driveway
