Signs of Home: Shiawassee Ice

Thanksgiving is upon us and I am saturated in gratitude. My path to this place is paved with the fine rapport and altruism of people whose love for their fellows is absolute. I was led to this diminutive Michigan city 13 years ago, where I discovered a community of people who love one-another. My Blessings abound. I enjoy the warmth and cheer of a loving wife, affable friends, and the unsurpassed love of the Living Savior. 

My Thanksgiving message is from Ephesians 4:32): “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” I traveled far to arrive at this place, and I believe there are many fine cities just like it. May your terrestrial destination be likewise. Home is where you find your dog, and the love of Christ Jesus. If you are a winsome traveler, you might enjoy this haiku, “Shiawassee Ice,” which I posted 4 years ago at Thanksgiving.

Holy Waters

My Wyoming and Colorado buddies would argue the point, but Michigan actually is the center of the universe. If you don’t believe me, read Timeless Fly Fishing on the Au Sable River, an article posted by Up North. But this is only one place in Michigan where you will find legendary, monumental beauty in nature, and blue ribbon trout water. Michigan is a great place for people who enjoy the outdoors–winter, spring, summer and fall.

I hope you enjoy “Holy Waters,” a haiku honoring one heckuva beautiful spot on God’s green earth.  Continue reading

Twain Hearts

This is a recent picture (taken in March of 2017) of me and my lovely wife on the dance floor, and in honor of God making the most perfect match for me, I have written a new sonnet titled “Twain Hearts.”
So here’s to God, “the best maker of all marriages . . .” Guys, God has never created “a perfect woman,” but never doubt that He can create the perfect woman for you. I hope you enjoy “Twain Hearts.”
