I Need to Pray More For….

  I need to pray more for someone who wants equal rights for all and gets upset when people opposed to them get something legally that doesn’t go their way.

Heroes Need Help

Heroes Need Help

  Normally I am not a hero. I am a Christian, husband, father, and friend. For the past 15 years my family has gone to our dentist at Ladue Family Dental. We have referred friends to them because they make you feel welcome and comfortable. So when they got a new hygienist that fit my […]

Vacation Thoughts, Part Two

I’m Disappointed Cardinals Nation

Let me start off by saying that I was shocked when I heard Albert Pujols signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for 10 years and 254 million dollars.  No trade clause included.  Shocked. Stunned.  I really thought there was no way he would leave St. Louis.  Baseball is a business and if you […]

Born Bleeding

When thinking about a blog title, only three titles came to mind for me.  They were Door Opener, Semper Gumby, and Born Bleeding.  I will explain the meaning of each one and the reason I chose Born Bleeding. Door Opener is a reference to my confirmation verse which is Revelation 3:20.  It states :  Behold, […]
