Packing My Bags, Again

It's hard to believe that I've been back to Mississippi for two weeks! Time really raced by.

Friday the 13th (whooooo) at 2:20pm, Georgia will be two weeks old. 48 hours after that, I'll be on the ground in Maryland.

Getting to see friends and family while here has been refreshing and a bit tough. Flying in and out for a weekend is no time to miss the people or the place. Staying home with Kim, lovin' on a new baby, and working from home for two weeks...tends to make one reflective. I still know that God's opened some remarkable doors to take us to DC. And I still know that I love the South! ;)

From here on, the waters get a little muddier. God knows when the house will sell and where we will live and how the drive from here to DC will be...I just wish that I knew! ;)

But even when that day comes, we forged too many friendships and I have too many family members to not return often to the Magnolia State. Besides, I'll be expecting many of you to be touring DC with us soon!

More to come...

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.

Finally Leaving the Layoff Swamp

A month ago, on March 12, my 9-month layoff ended as I began working for the City of Baltimore as an IT Project Manager. I described many times the experience of being laid off like being in swamp. Not just “in” a swamp but trapped or lost in a swamp: uncertain of its depth and dangers, being anxious to escape, admiring the surroundings, feeling at times miserable, and doubting your skills.

I learned many things from this experience about myself and those around me. Hopefully, I'll compile these thoughts into a book soon. For now, here's a short list. One tip for each month of my layoff:
