Dreaming

Don’t Wait Too Long

Dreams Back in 2,000 I wrote a song titled “Don’t wait too long to make your dreams come true.” One verse said, “Tell your Mama and your Papa that you love them every day. Cause it won’t be too long ’til your Mama and your Papa’s gone away.” Greg Brayton and I recorded that song,…

Fellow Veterans

Saturday I had a marvelous adventure. I love adventures. I went to the North Carolina State football game. NC played Syracuse and won. That’s four games in a row. Amazing!  Even more amazing was that I was one of 17 Purple Heart recipients who were honored guests getting the VIP treatment that day. First, we…

Interstate Highways

Interstate Highways

We live about where Interstate 40 joins Interstate 85 and they move along together for a bit.  It just messes with my head to think that Jean and I could get into our car and go just about anywhere in our 48 States without getting off the Interstates.  There are a lot of times that…

Seeking Synergism

Did you ever dip into the meaning of the word “Synergism” synergism (noun) the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.  Ever so often when I encounter that word I have a flood of good memories gushing…

Hymn Sing

Hymn Sing

Hymn sing. Yes, at our little church on a recent Sunday Morning we celebrated a good old fashioned Hymn Sing. No sermon. No preachin’. It was truly a blessed event because music is a powerful way to convey the Lord’s word. I was truly moved by this blessing. Barbara Younger, the organizer and leader of…

Plumber

Say Something Good: Plumbers

You can say a lot about occupations and their worth but some days I’d trade you five lawyers, three doctors, forty seven psychiatrists and at least one nuclear scientist for just one strong, seasoned plumber. We’ve got one and he is not taking any new customers because his existing ones plus his work with contractors…
