I had such great plans for today. I had been fighting a cough and lung junk, which meant I’d been skipping my workout to get more rest. Also, because I swim and that is at cross purposes with coordinating breathing and swimming. This morning, I felt great. I got up early, I had my swimming headphones charged and ready. I bounded out of the house and scooted down the street toward the Cain Center.read more
I’m a big fan of quiet reflection, it’s just that I don't get to do it often enough. The noise cloud around me is fairly significant. I am very noisy. I try, but can’t seem to be very quiet. I would sound like a jackhammer even if I was walking on marshmallows. I have always been loud. When I was a kid, teachers were constantly telling me to use my inside voice—which I was, because I was inside and I was using my voice. They meant use a quiet voice, which I was, because my loud voice is really loud.read more
In 1980, I was Baylor Line President. The “Line” was a guy’s freshman Spirit organization that ran onto the field, greeted the team and ran flags around the stadium when we scored. It was a second tier cheering squad. I had designs on being a yell leader. The Line had a reserved seating section. I always sat on the front row. I had lime green painters pants, not really Baylor colors, but I was hard to miss. I had a blast. I went to every game that season driving to all of them in my non-air-conditioned Mercury Capri.read more
Most people don't understand. They look at this picture and can't possible put the label "vacation" on it. They see the gear, long pants, gloves, long sleeved shirt, a jacket made of mosquito netting (with an attached hood and draw-string waist and wrists), and hat. In addition, the wafting smell of DEET, creates a bit of haze around our little marching band. Still, if we slow down or take off the hoods for a quick drink from a water bottle, the mosquitoes are waiting and take a dive at any revealed flesh and settle in for a bit of a feast. While we are walking, the high pitched buzzards, circle our heads hoping to drain us of all of our life. It is a battle. Our arms wheel and slap the air like worthless wings. After one particularly bad day, we counted dozens of bites.read more
Most of us have been caught up this week in the drama unfolding in West Africa. The worst outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus has spread into 4 countries with over 1201 reported cases and 672 confirmed deaths. There is something really scary about this virus. Maybe it is the amazingly quick and lethal nature of the Virus. Within 48 hours of contracting the virus, the symptoms can begin to occur.read more
In late January 2014, my greatest friend died unexpectedly. I was a wreck. Some mornings I would walk confidently into my office, close the door, and weep. I grieved and continue to grieve.read more
Last month, the Ethiopia Aid Mission Network sponsored a medical mission to the small village of Arerti. We partnered with a strong Ethiopian church in the larger town of Modjo. The church in Modjo had wanted to start a new church in Arerti, where there was no evangelical witness.read more
