We are here to be who we are,
to find and live the life that is ours to live,
and to make the best of all that comes our way,
while being a good, safe, place
for other people to be.

That's all our life asks of us.

How can we screw up something
as simple as that?

It's A-B-C,
from birth to the grave.

What would make it easier
than it is?

What are we doing
that makes it harder
than it is?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
