Anyone For A Howl?

We've had some amazing weather as of late in Maryland. Nothing like upper-60s to low-70s as evening falls. It's even gotten into the 50s in some burbs. And this is August?!

While walking Maddy tonight, I noticed the moon looking very similar to the image on left. My thoughts instantly went to what's around the corner: my favorite time of year!

I love Fall...the temps, the smell on the winds, the color of leaves, and Halloween. Mmmmmm, time for some shut-eye with the windows open. :)

Being Intentional After A Layoff

One week ago today, I was laid off. It's still rather surreal. But I believe even in a layoff, one can be intentional.

Today, working for a company more than a few years is rare. There was a time when being an employee for one, two, or even three decades was admired and rewarded. In the tech industry, three years seems the average. 
After three years, a worker can become an oddity. With nine years at AOL, I must've been a fossil. I wondered sometimes if people thought I had no ambition to "climb the corporate ladder." Or if I was one-dimensional and didn't wish to better myself. Else, why would one stay at the same job for nine years?

Finding Clarity From Swamps

Did you know you can find clarity from swamps?

I shared recently with a friend who is processing a difficult situation that he and I were in our own "swamps." It's difficult, frustrating, confusing, easy to get bogged down, scary, and has lots challenges. But if we weren't there, we would never learn what the Lord is trying to teach us.

My layoff is like a swamp.
