Sunday Review, January 27, 2013

This past Sunday (I know that this is a couple of days late!), I preached a message on how Jesus Christ came to restore man to his former glory and honor. He came and lived the glorious and honorable life that only He could live and became like man in order that He might save us. (You can listen to the sermon audio here!)

Moses & Aaron in Pharaoh’s Court

God also informed Moses that Pharaoh’s heart would be hardened as He said that it would be. (You can listen to the sermon audio here!)


So my 2 year old likes to wear my caps…and my boots. I took this picture and said: Me: “I want you to be a Dallas Star hockey player!” Gio: “Grrrrrrr!” Me: “No! Seriously! I want you to make lots of money because rent is due on the first of every month!” Gio: “Huh?!?” I […]

Words of Wisdom…From a Six-Year-Old!


Me and Elijah

This past Saturday was hard. It all started when I woke up. That’s right, you know what I’m talking about! We’ve all been there before. We wake up on the proverbial “wrong side of the bed.”

Well, since becoming a father of a six- and two-year-old boys I’ve been learning a lot. You would think that I would be teaching…and I am at times…but these two boys tend to teach me! I had to admit to my six-year-old that I was in a bad mood on Saturday although he was fully aware of me! Here’s how the exchange went:

Me: I’m sorry for waking up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

Son: Yeah, you did, but it’s ok.

Me: We’ll I woke up on the right side of the bed because thats the side I always sleep on.

Son: Yeah, but you woke up on the wrong side of the attitude!

Me: *Sigh!* Will you forgive me, Son?

Son: Of course I will! I love you, Dad!

Me: *Sob! Sob!*

I’ve been keeping myself on the right side of the attitude since then. Thank you, Elijah, for these words of wisdom.
