some Reflections in February

So much has been happening that blogging has taken a back seat to the pressing events of every day life. and while there are times when I can feel somewhat overwhelmed by everything that is taking place, I thank the dear sweet Lord that He reminds me to keep everything in perspective.

You children have a way of helping you to "keep it real." And there is nothing more wonderful that the genuine welcome of little arms when you walk through the door, - unless it is the welcome home kiss from your wife.

Then the craziness of the day and all that has happened melt away. I can take a moment and remember what is truly important.

Balance and perspective. All in a day's work.
